NBC anchor Brian Williams reprimanded Ann Romney for saying “I believe
in my heart that Mitt is going to save America,” suggesting it would
have been incendiary if Michelle Obama had made such a promise.
As the two sat in the NBC News booth at the Republican convention, Williams told Mrs. Romney the phrasing “jumped off the screen to me” and maintained, without identifying the supposed source, that “someone who knows you conceded that if Mrs. Obama used words like that...there’d be all kinds of hubbub.”
He demanded: “What do you mean? Those are powerful words.”
