Ann Romney's comments about cancer anger survivors, victims

First, I must say, my heart goes out to Ann Romney, as she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1998. On the other hand, her recent interview with People, she said that the thought had crossed her mind at one time, that she would prefer, rather than continue to suffer with MS, to “just have cancer and die.”

Obviously this went over like a lead balloon with both cancer victims and survivors. As someone whose father died of colon cancer, I can relate. Cancer is not a quick death; it certainly was not for him. It was long and drawn out, and I watched a strong man turn into a sickly gaunt person, at the end.

Naturally Romney has played damage control since the story hit the news, but it's another case of foot-in-mouth disease.

Mrs. Romney has tried to cover a very emotional moment of their lives. To discuss with him his criticisms of the MS is disgusting! Cancer patients run by Mrs. Edwards, and tries to slam behind him the political cover for their illness.
