With Rick Santorum officially suspending his campaign so he can channel all of his positive energy to designing fashionable sweater vests, Mitt Romney is facing pressure from the Republican Party to morph into a Mighty Power Republican Ranger. As the modern day Mrs. Doubtfire, Santorum gained respect from conservative stay-at-home moms and middle class families alike. The man could have easily donned a wig and nightgown while whipping up a batch of freshly made chocolate chip cookies. Santorum had an in with the traditional ladies.
Alas, the focus has shifted again to Romney who, unlike Santorum, has no idea how to use a vacuum, let alone clean a multilevel mansion. Realizing that he needs to appeal to a particular female demographic, Romney has pulled out his secret weapon: his wife. Ann Romney is just what the doctor ordered because she fits the basic criteria of being a woman and a stay-at-home mom.
After Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen criticized Mrs. Romney for having “never worked a day in her life”, Ann went on the defense via Twitter typing “I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work.” Still, some outsiders continue to question whether the Romney household ever relied on maids or nannies because, you know, they are stinking rich. Though Ann denied such allegations, a reported 5 nannies and maids are in fact stationed throughout the Romney household. Makes you wonder how much work Ann is really doing.
Though this little dispute might appear to some detrimental in regards to the Romney campaign, it might actually be a tactful move on their part. Ann is by far a more likeable character than her husband and her presence can help bring in those much needed votes. Despite this little sideshow, Ann Romney’s love for her children has made for a nice diversion from the craziness of what has become the Republican Party.

Romney would for sure be the Red Power Ranger. Look at him go!
