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.

    I wonder if this is the first time Anne Romney has ever been "proud" of her country.

    Every time faux enraged Ann opens her mouth, alexithymic Mitt loses more votes. She's the one who is "killing Mitt", more than anybody else out there-today's remark about YOU PEOPLE was a winner (for the dems) and a loser for the GOP-pers.

    "You people" means "you commoners" and "you people" have no right to ask for Romney's tax returns, the Queen has spoken to "you commoners".

    Stop hatin on ann! You people (you common people) just don't get it! You don't need to know anything about her taxes and how she and willard live their lives. I wish you people would just give it a rest! Ok? YOU PEOPLE (poor people, middle class people, people who aren't elitest, people who don't have money stashed in bermuda, cayman, and swiss bank accounts, people without car elevators, etc..) Yep, Obama's an elitest.

    Boy, this team really makes republicans look foolish. Just sayin...

    TO: Jon,
    By chance did you happen to read Mrs. Obama's PHD paper – or you just repeating what some person on Fox said. Please learn to not repeat until you have the actual facts.

    This guy will never even close to presidency. America got to be real idatic to vote for these GOP cult.

    See you in November, lady!

    TO Jon,
    I forgot to add that Mrs. Obama "did not write a thesis". She obtained her undergraduate degree from Princeton University and her law degree from Harvard Law School. At no time did she attend college to obtain an doctorate degree.

    As I stated earlier to Jon – Please take the time to educate yourself on issues – Please stop taking something for gospel what someone else tells you. Take the time to research an issue or topic for your self.

    No, she's never going to live down that "you people" thing, is she? Her own fault. But both of the Romneys seem to suffer from foot-in-mouth disease.

    The saddest part about this is they could still win Michigan. We have one of the wealthiest, whitest counties in the country and he has that sewn up.

    But he'll never get my vote.

    OBAMA 2012!

    She's going to speak to You people again?
    But Willard told us that Ann was the Olympic athlete in the family, should not the horse be in London? And the equine too?

    So Caddy non working wife goes to "your" state to stomp for you. The same state where you told the automobile industry to go baankrupt themselves?
    Do you realize that your wife is not well liked by most women I know. We can't stand her. She's not running for anything and she is just one step lower than the AK bimbo.
    She is not real. She lies about who you really are and that "you people" statement says it all about her.
    What's next let them eat cake?

    It's amazing and very stupid that the GOP has not stopped her from appearing in public. It will cost them half a million
    votes every time "you people" see her. Then again, Mitt probably does not dare to talk to her about it. Poor, old Mitt.

    Romney inside out . . . The true bane of his existence. The rude awakening of true Plutocracy in America. The hypocrisy of Greed and power will always cancel out true patriotism and leadership that is initially designed to serve the people. Question, how can someone who claim to love America, pillaged and plunder the American tax system by finding hidden loop holes, hiding money in offshore accounts, avoid serving in one of the most tragic wars in American history (vietnam), who really never did anything for anyone, it he couldn't benefit the most, have the Audacity to run for president of these United States? Romney's past actions or inactions, should be the bane of his self serving existence. Period.

    Not sure if it was on RACHEL MADDOW or LAWRENCE O'DONNELL show tonight, but it was mentioned at length about NPR reporting that 'ol Willard was Chairman of Marriott International (yes, the hotel chain) when they "adopted" a tax shelter that the IRS found later not to be a tax shelter at all and found it to be a sham and they were fined $29 million dollars. Mitt was Chairman of Marriott's Audit Committee! I think there will be a whole lot coming out about 'ol Willard before the elections. And perhaps "you people" will do the right thing and not let Mitt anywhere the near the White House!

    Do you think that Romney doesn't want to release his returns because if he did...his church might realize that he hasn't been giving them 10% after all????

    She looks so much more like a First Lady then Michelle Obama. She is smarter, prettier and a better person then Michelle Obama, she is nicer to people and does not look down on them as Obama does.
