HERE ARE ANN ROMNEY'S REMARKS THAT SOME CRITICS SAY MEANS SHE'S 'OUT OF TOUCH' WITH AVERAGE AMERICANS...

Some members of the mainstream news media (MSM), including former CBS News Anchor Dan Rather, have decided to 'go easy' on Ann Romney's comments, and have instead urged everyone to put her remarks IN CONTEXT...

But some critics--particularly on Twitter--say the spouse of Mitt Romney should not be given a "pass" by the news media since First Lady Michelle Obama was not given EQUAL TREATMENT when her husband first ran for President...

THE FIRST TWEETS ARE FROM THE VARIOUS NEWS MEDIA URGING VIEWERS TO CONSIDER THE CONTEXT OF MRS ROMNEY'S REMARKS...

THE COMMENTS OF TWEETERS WHO ENGAGED IN AN IN DEPTH CONVERSATION OVER THE MEDIA'S RESPONSE ALSO PROVIDE THEIR TAKE ON THE MATTER...

Did Ann Romney make a gaffe? http://t.co/XP80IIf5 - @thinkprogress accused @BigGovernment of selectively editing video = hypocrisy
The Washington Post @washingtonpost
Ann Romney says "I don't even consider myself wealthy." What did she really mean? http://t.co/WoEfawJd
Dan Rather @DanRather
Don't miss Dan on #MSNBC's @JansingCo coming up at 10am ET. They'll be talking about... you guessed it -- #SuperTuesday.

Just when you think MSNBC can't sink any lower, they make the disgraced and discredited Dan Rather a regular guest.

@utaustinliberal @Only4RM funny how Dan Rather says Ann Romney is off limit whn press spent days after days attacking MO in 08
🇺🇸🇭🇹 Only4RM 🇭🇹🇺🇸 @Only4RM
@ritaag @utaustinliberal How do you give interviews and participate on the stump but you're "off limits"? Oh yea, when you're not "Blah".
Nerdy Wonka @NerdyWonka
@Only4RM @ritaag Dan Rather is a moron. If FLOTUS had said what Ann R. had said the press would've skewered her.
NoChillMood @ritaag
@utaustinliberal @only4rm Exactly...MO was attacked for a comment who wasnt even a big deal
Fred Orth @FredOrth
RT @RobThompsonDC: @jansingco can always count on @DanRatherReport to bring some civility to the conversation. "I'm from the school of giving the wives a pass"
Nerdy Wonka @NerdyWonka
@ritaag @only4rm To add further insult MO's comment was taken out of context & her full statement wasn't reported.
NoChillMood @ritaag
@utaustinliberal @only4rm Exactly...Anyone who read her full statement wld get it
Nerdy Wonka @NerdyWonka
@JoeNBC @MorningMika Did any of you "moralists" call Pres. & Michelle Obama when they were viciously attacked by Palin in 08? @morning_joe
Eat, Drink & Be Mary @MWJ1231
Michelle Obama has been called everything but a child of God and I didn't hear .@joenbc defending her on his show. Give me an effing break.
TKB @tkbva
@66Betty no one gave Michelle Obama a pass on anything she has said -- sorry Ann, you are out of touch and everyone knows it
Cathy 🍸 @66Betty
I respect Dan Rather but disagree that Ann Romney "gets a pass" because she's a spouse. She's an adult who knew what she was getting into.
lovelyladypa @whome51obama
@DanRatherReport Here r facts u wont speak all u in msm went aft Michelle Obama. but Ann hands off. Dont think minorities wil forget
LOLGOP @LOLGOP
The right's Michelle Obama jokes -- which are never even 5th-grade funny -- are a time capsule of nauseating racism and misogyny.
Freemore @Freemore
@REALBROTHER0003 @tombrokaw Tom for the past month has been on a terror of racist mess just like old azz dan rather!

@LOLGOP Every time I hear the disgusting names Limp calls Mrs. Obama, I wonder where are the women of the RW....where are they?
BUT WHAT ABOUT FIRST LADY MICHELLE OBAMA? HAVE THE NEWS MEDIA GIVEN HER THE SAME CONSIDERATION?

HERE'S A CLIP MICHELLE OBAMA'S REMARKS THAT WERE GIVEN MUCH MORE THAN ONE DAY'S GAFFE TREATMENT BY THE NEWS MEDIA DURING THE 2008 CAMPAIGN...

A SIMILAR DISCUSSION TOOK PLACE ON TWITTER THE PREVIOUS DAY DEBATING WHETHER FIRST LADY MICHELLE OBAMA IS TREATED DIFFERENTLY BECAUSE SHE IS BLACK...

symmetry11 @symmetry11
Yes, Karen...I have heard you all defending Palin & Bachmann. Funny things is, I never hear/see dem woman defending Michelle Obama. Why?
ChickaDee @TheObamaphile
@symmetry11 or when the rightwing attacked Malia for wearing a t-shirt with the peace symbol.
Regster26 @thuddyt
@symmetry11 @marabout40 Good evening ladies. Disturbing subtext to Rush/Fluke story: Limbaugh attacks WoC all the time; where's the protest?
