Wow. "You people" was definitely an unfortunate choice of words. It made me immediately think of Leona Helmsley saying that "only little people pay taxes." I'm sure that's not the association the Romneys want at this point.

Well she's definitely better than you but beyond that not much here. My guess is she was referring to the liberal media who seems to think Mitt Romney's taxes are a pressing concern for most Americans.

Try again libbies.

Unless she was speaking directly to you, you couldn't possibly be one of the 'you people' to whom she refers.

Basic understanding of English matters.

The daily feigned outrage by the far left isn't working for them as obama slips further and further. Not holding their own candidate to the same standards they want to hold others to is also quite transparent. The sane in America recognize just how desperate they've become.

It's a big deal to the crazed lefties here and other leftwing sites but it's not working in realville.

Default Ann Romney calls Americans "You People"

Leave to Queen Ann to refer to us regular Americans as "you people'. She's quoted as saying, "We've given all you people need to know about our family finances."

LOL, "you people"!?

Now we know how Queen Annie feels, and we people think 'you people' (Romney's) need to stay as far from the WH as possible. The contempt and arrogance in her tone is quite revealing.

This blond is dumb as a doorknob. She screws up every single time she speaks. Every time.

Ann Romney: 'We've Given All You People Need To Know' About Family Finances

I think she was referring to the liberal press. They are "you people".

Were you in the room? Was she looking at you as she spoke?

No?

Didn't think so.

Not to mention this lame excuse for a thread has already been done:

Ann Romney: We’ve given all you people need to know
