    $77,000 a year!? Who does she think she is, Micheal Philps??
    But it doesn't matter anyway because they didn't build that.., Rafalca and Michael both owe the US Government for their successes..

    “We’ll try that,” Ann Romney said in an interview when asked if she planned to breed from the mare Rafalca. “We just love her.”

    Oh goody, more and more little tax deductions for Romney Hood coming America's way!

    Romney is just an average guy. After all every average guy has a million dollar dessage horse in the olympics. I wonder if Romney would recognize an average guy if he stumbled accross one. Sure he is going to help the middle class.

    Romney tried to use his SEVEN dressage horses as a business expense write-off on his one released tax return in 2010. $77,000 cost per horse! The IRS rejected the deduction. Romney just keeps showing over and over he cannot be trusted and is interested in one thing – his personal wealth and power to deregulate all business, banks, and create a corporate dictatorship where workers have no rights, women have no rights, and voters have no rights.
    So evangelical Republicans even know what Romney believes as a Mormon? He is not a Christian. Joseph Smith is more important than Jesus. He does not read the Bible but the Book of Mormon. Mormons believe Christianity began with Joseph Smith in America and the Garden of Eden is in Missouri. President Obama is a true Christian in his beliefs, how he was raised, and in his treatment and concern for We the People. Romney is a member of a cult who thinks it is fine to cheat others who are not part of the Mormon Church. Facts would something nice to know before you vote for a dangerous lying tax cheat in Romney.

    NBC thought this was so important that they never showed the dressage, just a quick update to say the horse did not medal.

    I have MS and not once have any of the neurologists I've seen ever suggested I try horseback riding or ownership for therapy.

    Maybe Romney will be kind enough to give Obama a job next January cleaning out Rafalca's stable?
