Ann Romney Threatens To Cut Off Media Access

Mitt Romney's wife, Ann, expressed her anger with the press corps Sunday, saying she'd like to see some reporters kicked off the campaign bus.

“I am so mad at the press [that] I could just strangle them!" she laughingly told National Review's Katrina Trinko. "And, you know, I think I’ve decided there are going to be some people invited on the bus and some people just aren’t going to be invited on the bus.”

She also complained that members of the media didn't want to see Mitt Romney elected.

"All of us in this room know the media loves Barack Obama," she said. "They don’t want anyone who has a chance of defeating him."

Last week, Ann Romney that she should take over the campaign from her husband. "Maybe I should just do all the talking and let him just stand here and watch me," she said on Saturday. "I've also decided: No more debates. If we're going to do another debate, he's going to sit in the audience and watch me. And that'll be it."

Still, the Romneys have maintained a mostly genial relationship with the traveling press, especially when providing them with baked goods. He gave a birthday cake to reporter Maeve Reston of the Los Angeles Times for her birthday in January and earlier in the month passed out pastries to reporters on a charter flight in South Carolina.

"Who wants some more of these?" Romney said, according to a pool report from The Washington Post's Philip Rucker. "Look at this. This is good stuff. This is from Panera. Very high-end."
