Video: Romney campaign uses new secret weapon at NRA meeting

posted at 9:53 pm on April 13, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via Supplyboys News, it’s hard to tell from the audio but ABC says Ann Romney got a “hero’s welcome” and a “rock-star reception” from the crowd. Team Mitt must have anticipated it: It sounds like her intro here, which is brief and halting in spots, might have been a last-minute addition to capitalize on l’affaire Rosen. They were always planning to use her in their outreach to women, but now I wonder if her profile’s been sufficiently raised that they’re going to expand her role on the trail more generally. Is that good news or bad? On the one hand, she’s warm and sympathetic. On the other hand, per Byron York, it’s a further temptation to playing Obama’s “war on women” game:

The underlying point they’re trying to make, say Romney aides, is that the big issue for women is the economy, and not contraceptives or abortion, as Democrats screaming “war on women” would have voters believe. Of course, those issues that matter most to women — jobs, economic growth, the price of gas — matter just as much to men. None of them involves a “war on women” by anybody.

One of the main themes of the Romney campaign is that in 2009 and 2010, when Americans were desperate for a president to devote his energies to creating jobs and fixing the economy, Obama was instead obsessed with passing an intrusive and vastly expensive national health care plan, as well as with pushing through Congress a pork-laden stimulus, and even hoped to pass a cap-and-trade scheme that would have reordered the parts of the economy that hadn’t already been reordered by the health care scheme.

Yet now Romney calls Obama’s obvious economic failures “the real war on women.” Romney’s motives are pretty transparent: He’s trying to fight back against the Democrats’ latest talking point. But Republicans know the Democratic charge is ridiculous. Why make one of their own?

Feminists are waiting for her too:

“I simply have not seen her in any way as an advocate for women’s empowerment in society,” said Kim Gandy, the former head of the National Organization for Women, of Ann Romney before Rosen’s comments. “And since Gov. Romney looks to her to find out what women care about, that does not bode well. I haven’t heard her speaking out about increasing women’s opportunity for higher paid employment, for women in non-traditional occupations, specifically for increasing pay equity for women, closing the pay gap, certainly not on women’s reproductive rights.”

Privately, senior Democrats are even more candid — predicting that the relitigating of the Mommy Wars against the backdrop of a larger Retro Mitt campaign is not a battle that any Republican, and especially not this one, can win.

“She doesn’t connect in any ways with the women that he has a problem with,” a Democratic strategist aligned with Obama said of Ann Romney, alluding to the GOP hopeful’s polling deficit with younger, college-educated women. “She’s as foreign to them as he is. That’s not to disparage anybody who stays home and raises kids. But she’s just not like them.”

A second Democratic strategist acknowledged that the Rosen flap was “messy today,” but added: “They’re not going to win on this issue.”

That’s from Politico’s piece on the Don Draper-ization of Romney, but even without having watched a single episode of “Mad Men” I know Mitt’s a starkly different character from DD. What’s really going on with Democrats, it seems, is the Ward Cleaver-ization of Romney, with Ann soon to be cast as June. Can sniping at the Romneys for being a wholesome nuclear family in the mold of 1950s America distract enough voters from protracted unemployment and crushing deficits to earn The One four more years of protracted unemployment and crushing deficits? Stay tuned.

If the majority of voters consider being deemed “wholesome” as a slight or a diss, then we deserve protracted unemployment and crushing deficits.

“You start feeling like you’re not worth anything.” Mrs. Romney told a diner crowd in Somersworth, N.H., describing her reaction to a 1998 diagnosis. Her voice catching, she silenced the room when she said her husband told her: “I know you think that life is over, but it’s not. Together we can do anything.

Awwwwwwwwww. Now, that, my dear friends, is SWEET.

All I know is that the first I really heard from Ann Romney was her FNC interview following the sniping from bitter lesbian Hilary Rosen that stay at home mothers were worthless human beings.

In that interview, Ann Romney was flawless. The campaign really needs to use her more often to deal with these issues because it is the way Romney can demonstrate he is not as cold as he can come across. We need to see more of Romney as a family man and that has been absent from the campaign up until a bitter lesbian slut decided to take on stay-at-home moms.

Happy Nomad on April 13, 2012 at 10:05 PM

“Of course, those issues that matter most to women — jobs, economic growth, the price of gas — matter just as much to men…”

That’s what the Democrats don’t understand…

… The rest of us don’t live in the bubble inside the beltway living off of Obowma’s man goo.

We are out here working out as%es off just to stay afloat…

… and their diversionary tactics away from their failed policies only make the failed policies that much more a reason to vote against them from Obowma down to the dog catcher.

I think that when you are the son of a politician who ran for the Presidency, you have a different perspective on this stuff. Keep in mind that Romney’s success in the primaries is a result of essentially doing the groundwork since bailing out of the 2008 primaries. Mitt and Ann Romney have been on the campaign trail for a year now so, yes, he is deadly serious about winning and he will pull it off.

whatcat on April 13, 2012 at 10:15 PM

Okay, okay, we all love her. But Mitt had better use this opportunity of her sudden surge in popularity to take it to Obama. His campaign started beautifully with the bumper stickers, now give the speech, Mitt, your vision for reviving the economy and restoring America. Ann can’t do it all herself. Or she could if we nominated her.

It’s not the Don Draperization of Romney that’s the problem. It’s the John Stewartization of the Left. Their approach to politics is paint-by-numbers sarcasm, condescension, and adolescent know-it-all-knownothingness.

They get their clocks cleaned this week and over the past month over this inane War on Women crap, but they’re convinced that they have it all figured out and will turn everything around in their favor. They just need to be taken out of power so that they can resume doing whatever it is that they do.

No one cares about the Left anymore.

Facts hurt doesn’t it? Mitt is so anti-gun that he is hated in gun forum.

If you’re a true conservative and pro gun you should not vote for Mitt.

jdun on April 13, 2012 at 10:34 PM

The NRA knows that Mitt isn’t like by Gun owners in America. In fact they know he is hated. The question is will Mitt take the NRA down with him.

Yeah right. The NRA is so dumb that they would prefer more 0bama.

Not this NRA member.

Did you get your “True Conservatives For Obama” T-shirt yet?

Ann also says we “need to respect the choices women make”, so she is pro-choice now?

Choosing to raise kids is not the same as choosing to deprive the unborn the choice to live.

Apples meet oranges.

jdun on April 13, 2012 at 10:36 PM

Many may hate him, but they sure as heck hate Obama more. Like I said, the NRA will endorse Romney.

GOPRanknFile on April 13, 2012 at 10:39 PM

I commented way back when…I think when Romney won Florida…that I would pay mucho $$$$ to see Mrs. Romney date Moooche.

SouthernGent on April 13, 2012 at 10:11 PM

Uh….gross. That can’t be what you meant?

cynccook on April 13, 2012 at 10:14 PM

OMG! Gross! I meant DEBATE.

SouthernGent on April 13, 2012 at 10:39 PM

The NRA will endorse Romney and the average Amurrican will magically forget his anti-gun stance. Take it to the bank.

GOPRanknFile on April 13, 2012 at 10:34 PM

FTFY. And they will, too. Romney has no worries on this angle.
