While talking to Radio Iowa yesterday, Ann Romney ripped her husband's conservative critics and the "chattering class."
"Stop it. This is hard. You want to try it? Get in the ring,” she said. “This is hard and, you know, it’s an important thing that we’re doing right now and it’s an important election and it is time for all Americans to realize how significant this election is.
....“It’s nonsense and the chattering class…you hear it and then you just let it go right by,” she told Radio Iowa. “…Honestly, at this point, I’m not surprised by anything.”
Romney's had a fraught relationship with some influential conservatives. The Wall Street Journal offers regular advice that's often constructive but highly critical, The Weekly Standard has often been critical, and when Mitt moves too far to the center, the Rush Limbaugh wing explodes.
So her frustration is understandable, especially since the primaries are long gone and there are less than two months until the general election.
Having said that, Romney is losing right now (maybe not nationally, but certainly electorally), and if Obama were in a comparable position, the James Carville's of the world would be sending regular melt-down missives to the president.
