Ann Romney, who once blew a bundle on prototype Stepford husband Mitt v1.0, does not know what tomorrow will bring in this crazy topsy-turvy now-you-see-it now-you-don’t world that all of the rest of us live in:
“We can be poor in spirit, and I don’t even consider myself wealthy, which is an interesting thing, it can be here today and gone tomorrow,” she said.
In fact, at one time, the Romney’s were so poor that Ann Romney had to get up at 5AM in the morning in order to fly all the way across the country (in the snow! uphill both ways!) just so she could ride one of her horses for the day. They could have brought the horse back to Massachusetts but Mitt wanted to strap it to the car roof, and that probably would have looked bad because Mitt’s running for president for pete’s sake, you can’t strap a horse on top of the car roof.
The Romney’s imminent poorness is also why they are tearing down their $12 million 3000 square-foot ocean-view beach-hovel in order to expand it to a little over 11,000 square feet so they will have enough room when all of their kids and grandkids have to move in with them, even though Mitt is unemployed and his job prospects aren’t looking too good, because that is what poor families do when times get tough.
