Ann Romney: Biggest Fear Is For Mitt's 'Mental Well-Being'

WASHINGTON, Sept 28 (Reuters) - Ann Romney told a Nevada television station her biggest concern if her husband, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, becomes president was his "mental well-being."


In an interview Thursday with television station KTVN, Mrs. Romney was asked what her biggest worry was should Mitt Romney be elected to serve in the White House.

"I think my biggest concern obviously would just be for his mental well-being," she said. "I have all the confidence in the world in his ability, in his decisiveness, in his leadership skills, in his understanding of the economy. ... So for me I think it would just be the emotional part of it."

Mrs. Romney has been campaigning hard for her husband, with some bumps in the road. She had minor surgery on her right hand recently, making it difficult for her to shake hands, the Nevada station reported.

In Iowa a week ago, she had a tough response for the Republicans who have criticized her husband.

"Stop it. This is hard. You want to try it? Get in the ring," she told an Iowa radio station. "This is hard. It's an important thing that we're doing right now."

The U.S. presidential election is on Nov. 6. (Reporting By Diane Bartz; editing by Todd Eastham)

Anyone who thinks the job of being President wouldn't be mentally and emotionally taxing is fooling themselves. Just look at the amount other Presidents have physically aged during their tenures. It's amazing to see their pictures of before and after.
Its a valid concern for anyone, really.

edit: Though I agree that this is just bad publicity and shouldn't be voiced publically. Think of the irony of how much this accusation will tax him, especially considering who it came from.

People who label others as bandwagoners, people who tell other people "how" to cheer for their team, "how" they should act or what they should wear to "support" their team, people who only want to hear positive thoughts and don't want to read about how the team can do better - these are people who are insecure and uncomfortable within their own skin.

I'll support my team the way I choose, thank you very much. You can choose to support your team the way you want to, and I won't judge you on it as long as you don't try to force your beliefs on me. I'll also be quick to point out where I think the team can do better, because identifying that there is a problem is the first step to fixing it; denying or ignoring a problem won't solve anything.

Go Canucks Go.

You know, when you have more money than you can ever eat, "sliver-spoon-fed" all your adult life, and then someone has the audacity to tell you can't have something?? .. man that must be awful deflating .. "but honey-buns, why don't you just BUY it?" .. "I'm trying sweetie-pie" .. :lol:

Wow, talk about making headline with a non-story. The Presidency being a tough job? What's next? The news saying the sun will rise from the East?

If this was Michelle Obama speaking, how would people be reacting? :rolleyes:

What a non-story. What if Hilary Clinton, Laura Bush, or Michelle Obama made those exact same comments?

This is stupid.

Hockey players' wives and mothers could say the same thing because hockey players get bashed all the time, sometimes for absolutely no reason at all.

Ann needs to suck it up or get out of the kitchen. There's a reason why a President is paid as much as he is.

Being the leader of the most powerful nation on the planet would be a taxing occupation with a lot of pressure. I don't see how anyone can dislike the fact that Ann is voicing concern over her husband's well-being. To not do so would be cold.

“Reason is itself a matter of faith. It is an act of faith to assert that our thoughts have any relation to reality at all.” - G.K. Chesterton

“Unbelief is as much of a choice as belief is. What makes it in many ways more appealing is that whereas to believe in something requires some measure of understanding and effort, not to believe doesn't require much of anything at all.” - Frederick Buechner

“All human nature vigorously resists grace because grace changes us and the change is painful.” - Flannery O'Connor


“My argument against God was that the universe seemed so cruel and unjust. But how had I got this idea of just and unjust? A man does not call a line crooked unless he has some idea of a straight line. What was I comparing this universe with when I called it unjust?” - C.S. Lewis

If "Ann" is too ignorant to realize what comes with the "job", then perhaps she and her hubby are not up to the responsibility .. I do know the stress of supervising the nannies who raised the boys no doubt lead to her MS .. with great money comes great expectations .. poor baby ..

Pfft, I'd fear for anyones well being if they were President of the United States. Not that I could ever be it, but I think I'd end up in a Pysch Ward of a hospital before my first 90 days were up from all the pressure, lack of sleep, non-stop questions and important decision making.

By the way learn how to spell SHIRIKOV who is this shirakov


Amazingly on his first shift Kassian would have had a breakaway if Kesler knew how to pass. And he still got switched with Weiss. And note it is "Weiss" not "Wise".
