Stephany Kern has a lot of nerve. She didn’t return Mitt Romney’s call right away. Mitt has sons and a wife and horses to attend to! And he is a lot busier then you, which makes sense because he has so much more money to make. Warning: If your son was blown up in Iraq, and Mr. Romney leaves a voicemail for you on the day of his funeral, and you are too distraught to check your voicemails, you will face the ex Gov.’s phone bullying.
“I can’t believe you haven’t returned my call,” Romney said on one of the voice mail messages, according to [Gold Star Mother] Stephany Kern, speaking at her Westerly,
Rhode Island home this past Saturday. “Here I am making a second call; I haven’theard from you.”
Kern did not save the messages. This is the first time she has spoken publicly about them.
Kern’s son, Marine Lance Corporal Nickolas Schiavoni, was killed by an IED explosion in Iraq on November 15, 2005. [...] Mrs. Kern says that many officials, including Romney and Senators John Kerry and Ted Kennedy, left messages for her the day after her son died. She felt unable to speak to anyone in those initial days. “I didn’t listen to any of the calls,” she says. When John Kerry and Ted Kennedy didn’t get return phone calls, they reached out to family members to find out whether and when Kern might want to hear from them.
Only Romney, she says, complained in a second message that she had not called back, and then called a third time, with each phone call growing more and more antagonistic. Stephany Kern’s husband, who listened to the messages, said the Ex Governor’s tone was “disrespectful” and “antagonistic” and that he was “absolutely inappropriate.”
If only Mr. Kerns had worked in outsourcing jobs and pillaging employee retirement accounts like Sir Mittens, he would know the difference between “disrespectful” and “antagonistic” and “Presidential” and “classy”. Obscenely wealthy white men are people too, you lazy mother with a dead kid.
“Here I am making a second call. “Here I am” in my 6,0000000000000 square foot car elevator slash dancing horse farm. ”I am stunned, STUNNED, by the lack of consideration shown by the little people to their betters. That us mega-richies don’t have you all skinned and shredded and stuffed into comfy, high-backed chairs is a testament to our boundless patience. Know your place, little people”.
No matter, in another two weeks no one will be returning Mitt’s calls.
