Ann Romney Quotes:
JAY LENO: And what was it that made you so angry?
ANN ROMNEY: Well, you know, I will tell you, Jay, that four years ago ‑‑ it's a hard thing to do this, I will say, especially being a wife and having to listen to all this stuff all the time. Four years ago I made a videotape, and on the videotape I looked in the camera, and I said, Mitt, this is for you, sweetheart. I'm never doing this again.
JAY LENO: Oh, really?
ANN ROMNEY: Yes. And I showed it to him. And he looked at it, and then he said, you know, Ann, you say that after every pregnancy. Which is true.
JAY LENO: Now, you guys have been married 43 years.
JAY LENO: So you met it high school?
ANN ROMNEY: Met in high school.
JAY LENO: So was it love at first sight? How does that ‑‑ tell me about that.
ANN ROMNEY: Oh, it was for me. We met at this party, and I will tell you, my heart was just wonk wonk, wonk wonk. I mean, yeah, for me, it was ‑‑ I think for him, too.
JAY LENO: Okay. And was there dancing? Was he a good dancer?
ANN ROMNEY: You know, Jay, he's gotten to be a better dancer.
JAY LENO: Boy, that's a political answer.
JAY LENO: On a serious note, talk about the significance, if he gets elected being the first Mormon president. How is that?
ANN ROMNEY: Well, you know, I love the fact that we have the first African‑American president. That means to me that we're leaving prejudices behind. I would hope that if Mitt were elected, we would see more of the same, that prejudices are left behind.

I GUESS YOU KNOW THIS. THOSE REPLACEMENT REFS HAVE A NEW SLOGAN: CLOSE ENOUGH, THAT’S FINE.

I TELL YA RICKEY, THOSE REPLACEMENT REFS ARE BAD. THEY’RE BAD. THESE GUYS HAVE BLOWN MORE CALLS THAN T-MOBILE. THAT’S HOW BAD THEY ARE.
THESE GUYS ARE BAD, TODAY EMPLOYEES AT FOOTLOCKER SAID THEY ARE NOT FIT TO WEAR THE UNIFORM. THAT’S HOW BAD IT IS. TERRIBLE.
WELL LAST WEEK IN VERMONT, THE GUY FROM THE DOS EQUIS BEER COMMERCIALS. YOU KNOW "THE MOST INTERESTING MAN IN THE WORLD" . YOU EVER SEE THAT. WELL HE HOSTED A FUND RAISER FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA.

OH LISTEN TO THIS. AT A CONCERT THE OTHER NIGHT, MADONNA PROMISED FANS SHE WILL STRIP NAKED IF PRESIDENT OBAMA IS REELECTED. NOW IS IT JUST ME, OR DOES THAT SOUND LIKE AN ENDORSEMENT FOR MITT ROMNEY? I’M NOT SURE.
WELL SEASON 15 OF DANCING WITH THE STARS PREMIERED LAST NIGHT WITH IT'S "ALL STAR” LINEUP. GUYS IS THIS REALLY THE 15TH SEASON? HARD TO BELIEVE I'VE MISSED ALL 15 SEASONS. SEEMS LIKE JUST YESTERDAY I DIDN’T WATCH THE FIRST SEASON.
