Ann Romney: ‘I doubt’ we’ll take as many overseas vacations as the Obamas – The Hill’s Blog Briefing Room

I bet they reimburse the Treasury for any vacations too!

Ann Romney, the wife of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, said Monday that she doubted she and her husband would vacation overseas as frequently as the Obamas if her husband were elected.

Romney was responding to a question from WJR Detroit’s Frank Beckmann, who asked Romney if her family would be vacationing abroad as frequently as the Obamas.

“I doubt that,” Romney replied. “Our vacations and our happiness come from being with our children and our grandchildren.”

But the potential future first lady didn’t rule out vacationing at all, noting the Romney family has their “own places for that.”

“When we take a vacation, it’ll be with our children and grandchildren,” she repeated.

President Obama is in the Mexican resort town of Los Cabos on Monday for the G-20 summit.

Romney went on to say that she was enjoying the campaign trail, and encouraged by how crowds seemed to coalesce around her husband.

“It’s been a little surprising to me how quickly that happened and how people are putting a lot of hope around Mitt,” Romney said.

Noting the last time the couple had been in Michigan was in the midst of the bruising Republican primary, Romney said she was encouraged by how some of the infighting of that contest had faded away.

“It’s amazing how quickly that happened; it evaporated very quickly,” she said.

Mitt Romney will visit the state Tuesday to wrap up his five-day, six-state bus tour.

Mrs. Romney also talked about how she was excited a horse she jointly owns, Rafalca, had qualified to compete in the Olympics in dressage, an equestrian sport.

“I’m so excited, honestly, to be able to represent the United States,” Romney said.

She downplayed any speculation of entering the competition as a rider, though, saying that seeing Olympic-level competition was like a club tennis pro visiting Wimbledon.

  1. The Obamas pay all their personal expenses themselves when they travel and all the right wing liars know this.

    • Sure they do……

      It just happens that EVERY trip they take is an ‘Official Trip’.

      • So? They are “Officials” aren’t they?
