Ann Romney in Michigan for close race

(CNN) – The presumptive GOP nominee's wife, Ann Romney, will stump for her husband in the battleground state of Michigan on Friday.

Romney will attend a Victory Center opening in Royal Oak while her husband campaigns in New Hampshire prior to his trip overseas to Israel and London for the Olympics Games next week.

Polling indicates a tight race in the Great Lakes State between President Obama and Mitt Romney.

The former Massachusetts governor's wife has been increasingly visible on the trail campaigning with her husband as August's Republican National Convention draws near.

    She should be in London watching her horse do the ballet! Not only do many Americans find it hard to pay for the food for their children but they would love to have a little extra to send their little children to dance class. The Romneys have never worried about paying their bills and have plenty of money to send a horse to dance class! Oh yeah, they are not out of touch with most Americans.

    I hope she does not encounter 'you people,' because it would be devastating if some of that middle class aura were to rub off on a plutocrat.

    Your're no Jackie Kennedy, Eleanor Roosevelt or Michelle Obama and I'll show you whose time it is in November. Hint: the last name won't be Romney.

    I wonder if she brought their TAX papers with her. If she's going to continue to be on the trail giving speeches, she's also subject to the same as her husband on the TAX issue. Fair Game uh ? These people are discusting to say the least.Neighter her or her husband could care less about the average american person. They will never see the W/H for any reason in their lifetime. He needs to go back to Wallstreet and be the Ceo for another rip off company and she needs to go to her Newly re-built home in Laguna Calif and play the Hard-Working Mom and Grand-ma. Don't forget the MAIDS, GARDNERS, ECT, Mabe 1 of their sons can run for President someday on another PLANET!

    And she will be saying "You people" do not need to see any more of our tax returns. You little people should just be grateful that we are running to be king and queen.

    isn it nice to have a presidential candates wife who understand personal trials and is willing to sacrifice her husband to make this world safer and better ... The Romneys dont this this job, they just feel they can do it. Unlike Obama's wife whose PhD thesis was filled with racial slurs and advocated things what would make the black panthers blush

    Could anyone show me a copy of George Washington's tax returns ... how about John Adams ... or Thomas Jefferson ...

    If the founding fathers didnt think it was important ... why do we?

    O ... Ask me ... I just relaized the answer to my own question ... It is because only by trying to put Romney down, and not running on his own accomplishments that Obama can get re-elected ... So the many need to be trashed so that the one can get elected. Please everyone ... vote for hope and change ... vote Romney 2012

    Queen Ann shrieks in horror, "Oh my god Mitt, there are those people?!", as they drive by a crowded side walk in downtown.

    You got the "sacrifice" part right. Willard, Ann and their non-military sons were all sacrified at birth. To the devil. You too, can join them in their quest as I'm sure they would love to have you.

    "She should be in London watching her horse do the ballet! Not only do many Americans find it hard to pay for the food for their children but they would love to have a little extra to send their little children to dance class. "

    Yes, but the Mittens family gets a tax deduction about twice the size of the average middle class salary for having a dancing horse. Clearly, this helps society greatly.

    In the words of Rick Santorum, "What a snob!" She has no idea of how to be kind to the middle class! Go home to your cadillacs and car elevator!

    Queen Ann,
    All the best to you and your 70,000 dollar deductible dancing horse , also say hello to your five sons who avoided voluntary military service at the same time supporting the Iraqi war .

    And your right ,
    Mitt has a great sense of hummer , like bulling a weaker student in prep school.

    No Thanks , go live your rich and famous lifestyle , just stay out of politics .

    I don't care about the polls, there is no way, no how this race is close in Michigan! If money can buy the elections, why can't it by the people conducting the polls?
