Ann Romney Hits Back at Critical Blogger: 'I Can Speak Out as Much as I Want'
Ann Romney sat down with Neil Cavuto to discuss her new book on battling MS and she hit back at a blogger who recently directed some eyebrow-raising criticism at her.
A Media Matters research fellow, Oliver Willis, tweeted the following over the summer:

@owillis Maybe having a terminal illness drives her to get things down now while she can?

"Who is this schmuck?" Cavuto asked, telling Romney she could "unload" if she wanted to.
Romney said that speaking out about living with MS - which Neil Cavuto and Fox News' Janice Dean also live with - is important no matter what happened in the 2012 election.
“To this blogger, I say: you know what? Don’t get in my way. Don’t say I can’t do something. I can write as many books as I want. And I can speak out as much as I want," she said.
Once again, she was asked whether her husband might choose to jump into the 2016 race.
"We're high-fiving each other every morning, saying thank goodness we're not in this [race]," said Romney.
