Why Do They Want to Pick on Ann Romney?

Karin McQuillan, a retired psychotherapist and author who served in the Peace Corps in Senegal, writes at American Thinker that Hillary Rosen’s recent rant that Ann Romey never worked a day he her life is part of the Obama political strategy rooted in the politics of envy.  Worse, she says the strategy is deeply rooted in Obama’s psyche as a result of his upbringing.

I guess that’s a theory that one would expect from a psychotherapist.  McQuillan makes a fascinating case.


Closer to home, our friends at InTheLobby have a hilarious account of how Port Authority Deputy Executive Director Bill Baroni turned the table on U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg during the senator’s hearing this week over the fairness of toll increases and patronage at PA.

Turns out that Lautenberg as a former commissioner of the PA he had a free EZ pass for decades and didn’t pay tolls from 1978 through 2006 when the PA stopped issuing free EZ passes to cronies.

Regarding patronage, a former Lautenberg campaign staffer joined PA in 2002, and U.S. Senator Bob Menendez’s son is an intern at PA now.

West Virginia U.S. Senator Jay Rockefeller came to Lautenberg’s defense.  New Jersey Democrats have been silent, just as they were during Lautenberg’s dust up with State Senate President Steve Sweeney and George Norcross over the Rutgers-Rowan merger earlier this month.

The InTheLobby piece quotes The Asbury Park Press and The Star Ledger.

    I always refer to Lautenberg as the “illegal senator from NJ”. Our state Constitution is clear, a party cannot replace a candidate within 60 days of an election, PERIOD. Of course, our radical, renegade, lawless judiciary permitted Lautenberg to replace the digraced Torricelli on the ballot, well outside the NJ Constitutional limits.
    So now I count (3) illegal Dem senators. Ours, Franken who won in MN with the assistance of a major voter fraud campaign and the same for Harry Reid in NV. In Reid’s case the head of ACORN in NV was CONVICTED of voter fraud and 400,000 ballots discarded. How many were counted? Good Question! Of course, one of those radical, renegade, lawless judges gave her no jail time.
    So the Dem majority in the senate is the result of illegalities supported by a judiciary with a radical leftist agenda.
    Houston, we have a problem!!!

    When I read “voter fraud in Nevada” I thought you were referring to the GOP Caucus. Funny how all of the problems with vote counting in several primaries and caucuses always favored Romney.

    Baroni really gave it to Lautenberg and Lautenberg could not take it. GO BILL!

    You finally got one right. Yup, Romney is one of the dirtiest candidates in a long time.
