Ann Romney: "I Don't Consider Myself Wealthy"

Mitt Romney's foot-in-mouth disease about his money has spread to his wife -- Ann Romney doesn't think she is rich.

During an interview on Fox News on Monday, host Neil Cavuto asked Mrs. Romney if she and her husband are “oblivious, given your wealth, to the everyday concerns of average folks.”

She replied, “How I measure riches is by the friends I have and the loved ones I have and the people that I care about in my life, and that’s where my values are and that’s where my riches are.”

Then she added, “We can be poor in spirit, and I don’t even consider myself wealthy, which is an interesting thing. It can be here today and gone tomorrow."

It certainly is here today; the Romneys are said to be worth upwards of $250 million.

Her husband, who is somehow the frontrunner for the GOP presidential nomination despite the fact that no one really seems to like him, has said such things as he likes firing people, he understands the plight of the unemployed because he is also out of a job, and that he doesn't really follow NASCAR, but some of his friends are NASCAR owners.

Oh, he also said his wife drives a "couple of Cadillacs," and he bet Rick Perry $10,000 during a  presidential campaign, saying it like it was just betting a dollar.

Now his wife joins him as an out-of-touch rich person.
