Ann Romney dismissed concerns about her husband’s tax returns Thursday, contending that the two of them have “given all you people need to know.”

“You know, you should really look at where Mitt has led his life, and where he’s been financially,” the potential first lady said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “He’s a very generous person. We give 10 percent of our income to our church every year. Do you think that is the kind of person who is trying to hide things, or do things? No. He is so good about it. Then, when he was governor of Massachusetts, didn’t take a salary for four years.”

“We’ve given all you people need to know and understand about our financial situation and how we live our life,” she added later.

"You people." Is that like "the little people"?

Interestingly, the phrase "you people" is usually used, inappropriately, against blacks (see def. 2 and 3), as former GOP chair Michael Steele implicitly confirmed here. Good thing there aren't any African-Americans in this race. Or for that matter, any African-American journalists sitting across from you when you use the phrase "you people":

I'm not suggesting that Mrs. Romney is a racist. I am suggesting that the Romneys are so out of touch with regular Americans that they don't even understand that it's probably not a good idea to use the phrase "you people" about a black reporter, or a black president.

As for Mrs. Romney's comment that:

“You know, you should really look at where Mitt has led his life, and where he’s been financially,”

<u>Isn't that what we're trying to do? </u></div></div>

Yet you weren't offended in the least when Miss Nancy said the same thing.

I wonder why?
