Ann Romney Remembers Her Days "Living As A Poor"

Ann Romney Remembers Her Days 'Living As A Poor'
Even in their darkest hour, the Romneys always had laughs, love, and decent clothing.

BOSTON (CAP) - As a followup to her wildly successful speech during the Republican National Convention, Ann Romney is focusing heavily on the modest life she and her husband led during their graduate school days.

"They were simpler times, " she told Fox anchor Shepard Smith. "Mitt and I didn't have a lot of money, but we did have a lot of love, and heaps of imagination."

Ann told the story of how her husband kept the two of them entertained during those dark days with his hilarious antics.

"Some meals, we'd have nothing to eat but a single baked bean, which we'd cut in half, washing it down with some coal dust and a few tears," she said.

"To distract us from our hunger, Mitt would put on his punched-out top-hat and fingerless gloves and he'd do a vaudeville routine by candlelight."

Mrs. Romney sighed in rememberance.

"Back then I spent most nights sleeping with one eye open," she continued. "Because there was an open sewer tunnel right outside the curtain that led to our hovel - and the rats that came out of there were the size of small dogs. Often they were rabid."

To this day, Ann says she keeps a handmade shiv under her pillow out of habit.

She spoke of having only one dress to wear in those days, "made of twine and ticking," which she laundered every morning in the soapy runoff that pooled in the gutter from a nearby car wash.

"The car wash was a front though," she recalled. "What they really did was run drugs - sometimes girls."

Once in a while, she said she had been tempted to join the operation.

"In the winter it would get really cold in Boston," she said. "One time the ringleader at the car wash, Vic, he offered me half a rock and a warm place to sleep if I turned a couple tricks."

Ann ultimately refused. "Mitt said, Ann, you know, a warm grate is a warm grate. Maybe you should think about it. But I knew that someday we were going to get out of that hell-hole, and I didn't want those memories haunting me forever."

She added, "I'm sure many Americans can relate."

Mrs. Romney closed by telling viewers that she wants them to know that she understands where they're coming from.

"Life as a Poor is horrible," she said. "I've been there. And I ain't never going back."

During a later appearance on Good Morning, Ann revealed a tattoo on her bicep that she is pretty sure she got during a night spent drying out in prison, although she can't remember, because she was "high as a [bleeping] kite" at the time.

She then showed viewers how to make the perfect Early Fall Fruit Tart.

    After suggesting that learning a trade is a better career choice than an art history degree, President Obama has offered his apologies by delivering coffee and doughnuts to unemployed art history majors. "Chin up, my jobless friends," he said. "This country needs more baristas who can wax poetic about Rembrandt." «» The man whose job it is to hold the 'applause' sign to queue audience members during President Obama's speeches is demanding a pay raise. "My arms still hurt from the State of the Union," Fritz Gorman said. "And I swear Joe Biden just claps whenever he feels like it. Loser." «» Former first lady Hillary Clinton admitted to CAP News that she hasn't showered since 1996, a defensive mechanism she used to keep Bill away. "It was rough smelling that ripe for so long," she said. "But now that I'm 66, I use old lady perfume and that shit masks everything." «» Following his assertion that marijuana is no worse than alcohol, President Obama continued his comparison crusade by suggesting that eating gizzards is no worse than eating chitlins. "Cooked stomach or cooked intestine: what's the difference? They both taste like ass," he noted. "Black people need to do better than that." «» Researchers at MIT have finished calculating President Obama's approval rating, which they say can be obtained by use of the imaginary number i. "We all learned about the square root of negative one in school," said one mathematician. "But to find it applied in the real world is truly spectacular." «» Liz Cheney has announced that despite her carnal desires to continue pushing, she has decided to pull out. While most family members were tight-lipped over the announcement, sister Mary said she didn't think Liz "ever had it in her to begin with" and was likely faking the entire time. «» A new McClatchy-Marist poll finds President Obama's approval rating has soared to the highest of his presidency among deaf Americans following his speech at Nelson Mandela's memorial service. The sign language interpreter at the service was reportedly "signing gibberish" but clearly what he was signing resonated with deaf Americans. «» Following word that he's leaving the Republican Party, Sen. Ted Cruz has announced that he's also leaving the Hispanic race for an ethnicity to be named later. "Time to try my hand at a new race, or even start my own," Cruz said. "I wish Hispanics all the best, though." «» The White House denies rumors that President Obama is using the powers of the NSA to monitor daughter Malia's phone calls. "I am totally not picking up another line, covering the mouth piece, and listening when boys call her," Obama said. "I much prefer to eavesdrop through her bedroom door." «» President Obama was caught hitting on a pregnant woman during a speech in the White House Rose Garden yesterday when she swooned and fell lovingly into his arms. "Talking about Obamacare does have that effect on women," said an aide. "The whole thing had this weird Scandal vibe to it." «»
