So last night, FOX News token liberal commenter Juan Williams attacked Ann Romney, calling her just a "corporate wife" and implying she can't possibly relate to real women. I guess he thinks she can't be a First Lady. But what about the ultimate liberal ideal of the White House, the ideal President and First Lady, what about Camelot? Let's compare and contrast, shall we?
Went to BYU and finished her education at Harvard - while living in a basement and raising a son as her husband finished graduate school. Taught Sunday School. Active in the PTA and League of Women Voters. Survivor of breast cancer. Continues to suffer from multiple sclerosis, but still manages to campaign for husband despite this summer's relapse. Director of teen assistance charity Best Friends, United Way volunteer, and Director of Massachusetts Faith Based Initiatives. Full time mother of five. And yes, stood by and supported her husband as he made his own way in business. Guilty.
Born into wealth and priviledge. Raised by oil money. Well known equestrienne. Named "debutante of the year" at her "coming out." Storybook wedding named "social event of the season." Best known for her fashion sense and Chanel dresses. After her husband's death, married a billionaire.
This is not meant to denigrate Jackie. I am sure she was a charming woman and loving wife and mother. But rather, this is to show that Ann Romney shares many qualities of Jackie, but also grew up much more humbly and did far more as a wife and mother, including her own selfless accomplishments in education, political, and charitable work. Ann Romney has far more in common with working moms and average women than Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis ever had. But to a liberal like Juan, Ann Romney is just a corporate wife - while Jackie remains the liberal icon, the ideal First Lady.
I just don't understand the liberal mindset. They are simply not like us.
