Mitt Romney Took Swipe At Michelle Obama In 2008 Convention Speech

The Romney campaign attacked and fundraised off comments by Democratic strategist Hilary saying Romney’s wife Ann hadn’t “worked a day in her life.” But while Republicans pundits have attacked Democrats for taking aim at Romney’s wife, in Romney’s 2008 RNC convention address Romney himself took aim at President Obama’s wife Michelle. Romney said “just like you, there has never been a day when I was not proud to be an American,” hitting Michelle Obama for saying 2008 was “the first time” in her adult life she was proud of America.
