WATCH: Ann Romney Gives First Sit-Down Interview Post-RNC Speech

The day after Ann Romney delivered her electrifying speech to the nation at the Republican National Convention, the wife of the soon-to-be Republican presidential nominee sat down with Fox News’ Shannon Bream to discuss her remarks, motherhood, and the decidedly negative tone of the campaign:

I was particularly interested to hear Mrs. Romney weigh in on the pro-Obama SuperPac ad suggesting her husband was somehow responsible for the death of a steelworker’s cancer-stricken wife. We have debunked the fallacies of the charge, of course, but it’s interesting to hear how Mrs. Romney actually felt about such unapologetic and ruthless campaign tactics. Unsurprisingly, she (rightfully) called the spot “outrageous” and “upsetting” -- but further added she “doesn’t think those kinds of charges are going to end.” (Regrettably, she’s right). As Paul Ryan eloquently explained during his primetime address last night, President Obama exacerbated the 2008 financial crisis, ducked the tough issues, and refused to lead when his country needed him most. In short, waging a divisive war against his Republican challenger -- a generous and gracious man -- is the only way he can maintain power for another four years.

I thought Ann Romney’s speech Tuesday night was truly exceptional. Her best line -- "Mitt doesn't like to talk about how he has helped others because he sees it as a privilege, not a political talking point" -- perfectly encapsulates the kind of man I believe he is. The left has worked tireless to portray him as a greedy, “vulture capitalist" -- a cold, calculating businessman who doesn’t care about Americans less fortunate than himself. Nonsense. On the contrary, I think one of the reasons (perhaps the reason) he is running for president of the United States is because he firmly believes he is uniquely qualified to get America working again -- and can make a real difference in the lives of struggling middleclass families if elected. Sure, Governor Romney may not be the most charismatic presidential candidate on the campaign trail, but he loves his country deeply and will work tirelessly, as he often says, to “restore the promise of America.” Ann Romney -- as evidenced by her moving and candid speech Tuesday night -- is by far her husband’s best surrogate when making this crucial point.
