Juan Williams Calls Ann Romney a ‘Corporate Wife’ (dog whistles can be heard)


“Corporate Wife” isn’t racist; but “Food Stamp President” is???

(CNSNews.com) – As part of its Tuesday night convention coverage, Fox News assembled a panel of political analysts to discuss Ann Romney’s speech. Charles Krauthammer called it a “triumph,” and Brit Hume said it was “the single most effective political speech I’ve ever heard given by a political wife.”

But their fellow panelist Juan Williams — a Democrat — panned Mrs. Romney’s effort to connect with women, describing her as a “corporate wife” whose claim to understand the struggles of American women fell flat.

Ann Romney

“Ann Romney … looked to me like a corporate wife. The stories she told about struggles — eh! It’s hard for me to believe. I mean, she’s a very rich woman, and I know that, and America knows that.”

Pressed by Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly to explain what he meant, Williams said, “What does it mean? It looks like a woman whose husband takes care of her, and she’s been very lucky and blessed in this life,” Williams replied. “She’s not speaking, I think, for the tremendous number of single women in this country or married women. She did not convince me that, ‘You know what, I understand the struggles of American women in general.’”

On Wednesday morning, Brian Kilmeade of Fox & Friends joked that Williams is still getting negative feedback for the comment.

In her speech to the Republican National Convention, Mrs. Romney said, “It’s the moms of this nation — single, married, widowed — who really hold this country together. We’re the mothers, we’re the wives, we’re the grandmothers, we’re the big sisters, we’re the little sisters, we’re the daughters.

“You know it’s true, don’t you? You’re the ones who always have to do a little more,” she said, adding later: “I’m not sure if men really understand this, but I don’t think there’s a woman in America who really expects her life to be easy. In our own ways, we all know better.”

Admitting that her marriage to Mitt Romney has made her “the luckiest woman in the world,” Mrs. Romney also mentioned her health and parenting struggles:

“I read somewhere that Mitt and I have a ‘storybook marriage.’ Well, in the storybooks I read, there were never long, long, rainy winter afternoons in a house with five boys screaming at once. And those storybooks never seemed to have chapters called MS or Breast Cancer.

“A storybook marriage?” she asked. “No, not at all. What Mitt Romney and I have is a real marriage.”

  1. And they say that republicans are having a war on women!! I think Juan should be truly ashamed of himself. Breast cancer, MS, taking care of 5 boys – all a struggle, I don’t care rich you are!

    • I couldn’t help but think how much better a 1st lady she will be compared to who is currently filling that role.

  2. I just dont get why being a corp wife is a bad thing

    • You have to consider what is Juan’s definition of a ‘Corp Wife’.

      I took it as a ‘The Stepford Wives’ thing.

      • I see. That was some weirdo movie. But, for real, what person man of woman would not want to be a ‘corp’ husb/wife?

        Juan is a liberal moron, imo.

      • I wouldn’t mind being a ‘kept husband’, Beats working for a living!

  3. Reblogged this on Letting Freedom Ring and commented:
    I lose a little respect for Juan Williams daily – this is too much, even for him! Juan, your liberal bias is showing!!!

    • Thanks for the Reblog.

      My guess is Juan is auditioning for MSNBC.
