This weekend on Fox News Sunday Chris Wallace interviewed Ann Romney, wife of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. One of the questions he asked concerned her past financial support of pro-choice organizations, particularly a donation she made to Planned Parenthood in 1993. Her response was as follows:
"You know, a check for $100, written in 1993 . . . . I don’t even remember writing the check. I know today, I wouldn’t write the check. I mean, how do you remember all the checks you’ve written, you know, how many years ago was that?"
Sorry, Mrs. Romney, but this answer is not sufficient for me. Frankly, it just doesn't ring true. If you feel strongly enough about supporting an organization to donate that kind of money to it, you ought to remember doing so. So either you are not being truthful, or you are just another woefully out of touch millionaire politician. Neither speaks well of you.
