I agree! I think part of that is why he has such a bad campaign because they tell him to do something and he decides that he knows better and does something else.

He cant handle it and she doesnt want to witness him crack anymore than he already has. Not only that she has MS and stress excerbates MS. This is too much for both of them, Mitt should exit stage left gracefully....
His ego is to big and he would see that and losing as a failure.

I'm not a Romney supporter at all, but I do try to be fair, and I'm going to defend Ann Romney here. I think what she said was a very unfortunate gaffe. I don't think it was a secret signal that Mitt is mentally ill, and it makes sense to me that you'd be worried about the stress if your spouse took on a job like the presidency. She could have said something like "my concern will be to make sure we give Mitt lots of support at home, because it's a huge job...yadda yadda yadda" but instead she made it sound like she was worried about his ability to handle it. I don't think that was what she intended.

When you don't do your job or are incapable of doing a job, it takes it's toll in the long run and now I am not sure what all has been going on. It's getting curiouser and curiouser.

Of course George Bush NEVER took time off did he?

It is widely acknowledged that Barack Obama has taken far less vacation time than his predecessor.

I agree.

This is exactly why I knew Donald Trump was full of it when he was making noises about running.

The Donald would implode the first time congress didn't do what he told them to do.....and he couldn't fire them. LOL

It seems that she is not being properly advised by the campaign co-ordinators - certain phrases such as "mental health" would be COMPLETELY taboo when referring to a presidential candidate - they should be vetting every word she utters in public and clearly they are not doing so. I really think she is in way over her head and so is Mitt.
