Ann Romney is back on the trail for Mitt and she gave a rather bleak assessment to a Nevada radio station this week of what problems might face a President Romney:
Ann Romney's biggest concern if her husband becomes president would be his ability to maintain his "mental well-being," she said in an interview Thursday with KTVN in Reno, Nev.
Asked what her primary worry would be should her husband succeed in defeating President Obama on Nov. 6, Mrs. Romney replied, "You know, I think my biggest concern, obviously, would just be for his mental well-being."
I've been closely following politics since 1988 and this has to be one of the weirdest statements I have ever heard from a potential first lady or even surrogate.
And if Ann if concerned about her husband's "mental well-being", then perhaps she should consult one former President about it. Here's George Bush in a debate against John Kerry in 2004. In this video, Bush tells everyone 11 times how hard it is to be President.
So do we really want a President who might have a breakdown? It's not like we are talking about being the boss of a big company, where you can easily fire people who are against you. We are talking about the President of the United States, where you will have close to half of the country upset with you and replacing administration officials becomes a big deal, not only with the media but also with the Senate.
People really need to think about what Ann has said here and take it to heart on November 6. We are talking about the President of the United States here, and given the world we live in today we need someone who will be there mentally more than anything. Any risk of this person having a breakdown in a time of crises, or during that 3am call, shouldn't be considered.
