Romney Attacks President On Welfare; Obama Team Alleges Hypocrisy

Aug 7, 2012 Full story: National Public Radio 107

In an attack likely to conjure up for many President Reagan's successful use of Cadillac-driving welfare queens as an issue in presidential politics, Mitt Romney's campaign accused President Obama of using his power to weaken work requirements for welfare recipients.

Yet another "Executive Order" changing things that he cannot get through congress. He "changed" No Child Left Behind, Kennedy's baby BTW, by granting "Wavers" to selected states, now he's changed Clinton's shining achievement, Welfare Reform, no freeloaders, if you are on welfare, you have to either be training for a job or looking for a job, now SLEEPING is being considered as "work". He just loves growing the entitlement class, more voters for the dems. that way.

Why won’t the ex-governor Mormon Rich Money release his tax returns?

Is it because it will reveal he paid no taxes? Possibly or possibly not, but it’s a little more devious than that.

We may find out that during the recession when he was given the Bush era tax cuts to reinvest in the economy and grow it, he instead shipped those savings into offshore accounts while the economy shrank and the country suffered.

The purpose? Maybe to set up trust funds for his children and grandchildren and earn interest. To guarantee his clan future wealth. Definitely a smart thing to do.

BUT it hardly supports the purpose of the Bush tax cuts which were given to encourage the 1% so-called “job creators” to go out and reinvest their savings into the American people so that the wealth could “trickle down”.

What really ended up happening? The wealth remained trapped in the 1% and shipped overseas to guarantee the survival of their future generations, while the rest of us hard working American middle class were forced to suffer during the recession.

Why won’t the ex-governor Mormon Rich money release his tax returns? It would reveal why he fights hard for the 1%.

The Obama Campaign continues to brilliantly box Romney in on issue after issue… those tax returns will eventually be leaked but in the mean time Romney foolishly falls right into another trap:

He supported as Governor what President Obama is allowing as President. I’m really beginning to think that Romney is an even bigger buffoon than Bush.

From the article...

"...Romney's latest attack springboards off a July 12 Health and Human Services Department memo. The memo informed states that, under certain circumstances, the Obama administration would waive certain work requirements of the welfare overhaul law if states could show that the added flexibility would allow them to move welfare recipients to work more effectively.

Republican governors — including Romney, when he was governor of Massachusetts — have long sought such flexibility, but to no avail. They say the flexibility would give states latitude to try new approaches.

When the Obama administration announced its willingness to issue waivers, criticism from Republicans quickly followed..."

1) Republican governors (including Romney) have asked for these waivers.

2) Don't you teabaggers believe in letting the states have as much authority as possible? So what's the problem?

3) No wonder Gingrich & Ricky Sanatorium hate Romney. Mitt seems to be a liar down to his DNA...

Must be why they are tied in the latest polls, Romney has out raised campaign contributios for the last three months and even Obama has shown desperation on the issue to the point of sending out emails begging for contributers to "step it up". Obama is running the lowest dirtiest campaign ever and it's because he can't run on anything he's done, especially his signature issue Obamacare that was unpopular with American's but shoved down their throats anyway.
American's care about the economy and jobs, not some rich guys tax returns. It's a losing issue.
If Obama brings up taxes (and we hope he does) in the debates then it will just be the perfect oppertunity for Romney to remind him that Obama promised to fix our tax system and get rid of all those loopholes that allow the rich to pay less in taxes. Yet another broken promise to go with the broken economy.

Leftists don't want to admit that Solyndra, GM, Banks, et.al. now qualify as welfare queens at the taxpayer's increased expense. Obama sure weakened the work requirements for them, as long as they could parlay some funds back into his reelection.

The self-serving lord marshal b. h. obama is to business what a drunk farting gasbag is to fine dining.

The pathetic dirty diaper marxist trio moron cow patty, excrement and poop platter are to honor what b. h. obama and bill ayers are to Americanism.

Attention excrement!!! Last I checked you were busy licking sandusky's skid marks and his balls and avoiding addressing the more serious issue of obama/ayers. You would make a pathetic prosecutor and would be charged with malfeasance for giving a criminal like ayers a pass all for political gain. No question about it...you're a self-serving piece of sht.

Obama's handlers know the more useless, pitiful, hopeless and worthless citizens feel about themselves the more apt they are to vote for anyTHING with a D beside it's name on a Ballot. Obama's mantra of Collectivism at the expense of personal freedoms only appeals to Losers. Tax Slavery to Big Brother goes against everything America ever represented. America was never meant to be nothing more than Obama Nation.
