Although Mitt will be at the opening ceremonies of the Olympics, he is quick to distance himself from the rich guy taint of his dressage horse, in effect banishing poor Rafalca to the roof of the car, metaphorically speaking:
“This is Ann’s sport. I’m not even sure which day the sport goes on. She will get the chance to see it, I will not be watching the event. I hope her horse does well.”
Notice he says “sport,” not “dressage.” Notice it is “her horse,” even though the horse was paid for with his Bain money.
Bain money bought the horse but An. Worked her ass off raising five sons.
I’m sure she did it all herself with no domestics helping with laundry, dusting, vacuuming, cooking, cleaning, and being the perfect hostess to Willard’s business associates.
I bet she can make a mean peanut butter and jelly sandwich. That has to be worth something.
