Is it good to publicly reprimand leaders of your own party, telling them to "Stop it."
Does it come across as whining to say "This is hard. You wanna try it? Get in the ring."?
Is it wise to say, on a radio interview, that she has no patience for "chattering class" critiques when asked about comments by Peggy Noonan and other conservative writers in the media?
All interpretations welcome.
Caveat: Please do not bring Mrs. Romney's MS into this thread.
It has absolutely no bearing here.

Is it wise? We'll find out in November.
Is it good politics? Definitely. Most people already know this, but in Presidential Campaigns, the VP is the enforcer and the first lady is the bodyguard.
It would be beyond foolish to attack the wife; the only one who could even do it would be Michelle Obama, and even then the potential negative blow-back would more than outweigh any political gains they would make.
On the flip side, in this campaign, where one of Romney's biggest mistakes has been his apparent queasiness when it comes to mixing it up with the competition, I don't know that it really helps Romney at all to have his wife out there reinforcing that point, making an argument he should be making himself.
BH -- That's a valid viewpoint. Maybe that kind of authoritarian stance is not only tolerated, but expected in the R party. Maybe it will make the likes of David Brooks and Peggy Noonan snap to. Maybe all the R senate candidates will change their tune and realign with Romney.
Maybe T-Paw will even unresign and go back to being co-chair of the R campaign.
As you say, November will tell.
UW -- This has possibilities. We could have some wicked fun with a viral Facebook campaign -- how is Mitt Romney like Brittney Spears?
(Actually, as I recall, she is actually a Republican).
I doubt it. I doubt it very much. The RNC really doesn't want Romney to win. They're doing just enough to keep it from looking suspicious, but there's no way they want Mitt in the White House. The Republican bench is way too deep, you've got people like:
and a few others weren't quite ready this year.
The GOP needs to do a serious "re-branding" in the next few years, in order to have any hopes of staying competitive; Romney would have a choke hold on the party for the next 8 years if he wins, and if he doesn't fix everything (and I mean everything) in one term, the Democrats will run on the "we told you so ticket" in 2016 and slaughter him.
Obama is more valuable to the GOP right where he is.
That makes sense.
Like McCain in 2008. The country would have voted for ABB>
They will be in a much stronger position in 2016 if Obama stays.
That will make it a lot harder for Hillary to run in 2016.
It'll make it almost impossible for her to run in 2016. Don't forget either, Obama is still young, if he would happen to lose this year, he can always pull a Cleveland and run again. Better for the GOP to get him out of the way now, and then run the table in 4 years.
Does this remind anyone else of the video on You Tube with someone weeping and saying to stop picking on Britney Spears?
Anne Romney is a warning, not a candidate's benefit-wife. When I heard her bark the words "Stop it!" I knew that she is about as mentally ill as her husband. Neither of them belong in the White House, and it is a mistake to let her speak.
