What a fabulous speech on Tuesday night. Elegant, graceful and eloquent, Mrs. Romney gave us all a glimpse of the struggles in her life. On the surface, one might imagine she has lived quite a charmed one, having everything materially that money could buy.
However, the one thing that money cannot buy has dogged her almost half of her adult life: her health. Stricken with MS in 1997 and breast cancer in 2008, she paid scant attention to these issues during her speech on Tuesday.
One would imagine that her health concerns and condition must always be on her mind, never knowing if a relapse could occur. Her attitude could fool everyone and overrides any sadness and self-pity she might feel. Joyous and cheerful, she appears to welcome each day as it comes.
The materialistic envy displayed by the Left subsequent to the speech has been remarkable at best. Commencing with the Juan Williams’ snipe of “corporate wife” (whatever that means) to the numerous articles upbraiding the woman for having chosen her path in life quite well shows us the ugly side of America. For the first time in my adult life, I am ashamed of America and the class warfare that has ensued.
The vitriol posted has been downright vicious. The deep-seeded jealousy of the Left can no longer be masked. Even here, on the lil’ old Newsvine, the envy is readily apparent. The woman has been accused by the rabid Left of “never working a day in her life.” As she handily assured us, raising 5 boys was certainly no walk in the park.
Mrs. Romney is a wonderful representative for America the next 4 years. A wife, mother, grandmother, cancer survivor, MS sufferer, role model, charitable benefactor with both money and time and, a new descriptor to add to the list, First Lady. It appears that Mrs. Romney’s greatest sin is that she chose well in life, a decision that the Left just cannot reconcile.
And now, we are faced with a choice that will impact all of our lives this November. Let’s insure that we choose as wisely as Mrs. Romney and make her choice ours.
