From The Raw Story
"During her Republican National Convention speech last month, Ann Romney suggested that she and her husband had once been so poor that they “ate a lot of pasta and Tuna fish” and their “dining room table was a fold down ironing board.”
In an interview that aired Sunday on NBC, Ann Romney distanced herself from that version of history.
“Mitt and I do recognize that we have not had a financial struggle in our lives,” the Republican presidential nominee’s wife explained. “But I want people to believe in their hearts that we know what it is like to struggle. And our struggles have not been financial, but they have been with health and with difficulties in different things in life.”

This mea culpa was not made because they wanted to come was because in epic proportions, the American people saw it as the lying bullshit it was. 
This was not a Joe Biden off the cuff gaffe...this was from her convention speech, something that was vetted and edited a million times over before she gave it before the conventioneers and the 20 odd channels that covered it.
It was what it orchestrated attempt to lie and create the impression upon the viewers that the Romneys somehow experienced what the 99% are feeling now....something they cannot do without lying. 
I long for a politician that tells the truth. A politician that dares be honest and speak to the voters with a modicum of integrity. INTEGRITY....look it up, folks. We should be demanding some character from our leaders....some personal traits we would like to emulate.
Because any campaign that will lie about eating off an ironing board will lie about anything...any campaign that will lie about SOMETHING STUPID like eating off an ironing board will lie about EVERYTHING.
And that is my world.....the "World According to Kimba".....thanks for reading.
