Ann Romney 'I Don't Consider Myself Wealthy' Gaffe Not Actually a Gaffe

Yesterday’s “I don’t consider myself wealthy” firestorm was the result of selective editing by Think Progress. While Romney does say “I don’t even consider myself wealthy, which is an interesting thing” — which kind of sounds like it’s worthy of a jaw-drop/eyeroll/collective sigh — but taken in the broader context of her statement, she’s talking about defining monetary wealth vs. other kinds of wealth (and says she’s been forced to realize the difference due to her battle with M.S.). Now, if “wealthy” were replaced by “rich,” then it’d be a different story. [Washington Post]
