Attempting to make the point that there are things more important than money, she instead uttered, "I don't even consider myself wealthy, which is an interesting thing. It can be here today gone tomorrow." During the same interview, speaking about the horseback riding therapy she uses to treat her multiple sclerosis, she said, according to Boston Globe reporter Michael Levenson, "Some people have lovers in every port; I have horses in every port."
Yup its not like she is a billionaire. Then she would feel wealthy. The correct way to have said that line so that it didn't sound tone-deaf was "with Obama lurking about with his hatred of the well-to-do all the wealth we have might be gone at any moment. So we really cherish it."
Then don't talk about how many horses you have. A guy without a job does not want to hear about your pure-bred Arabian stallions that you have at your various mansions. It isn't the 80s anymore. I wish Eric Cantor or Paul Ryan was our candidate and not Monopoly Man Mitt.
