America Isn't Buying Whatever It Is Ann Romney Is Selling

From the transcript of Ann Romney's speech:
I’m not sure if men really understand this, but I don’t think there’s a woman in America who really expects her life to be easy. In our own ways, we all know better! 
And that’s fine. We don’t want easy. But these last few years have been harder than they needed to be. It’s all the little things — that price at the pump you just can’t believe, the grocery bills that just get bigger; all those things that used to be free, like school sports, are now one more bill to pay. It’s all the little things that pile up to become big things. And the big things — the good jobs, the chance at college, that home you want to buy, just get harder. Everything has become harder.
Funny how she didn't mention the fact that things are harder because the Republican Party has actively been destroying our nation's economy since the moment President Barack Obama took the oath of office.

Funny how she selects the idea that "school sports" now come with fees. These activities have come with fees for many, many years. School districts have been squeezed hard because of the kinds of draconian, granny-starving cuts espoused by the likes of the man that the Koch brothers told her husband to put on the ticket.

Funny how she misses the fact that, because of Republican obstructionism, life really is harder for the people she's trying to win over.

Funny how so many Americans now understand that the stark choice between the two candidates means the possibility of a recovery or bread lines and misery. Mitt Romney is the patrician candidate of breadlines and ruin.
