Romney: Obama Gutting Welfare Work Requirements To ‘Shore Up His Base’
By superadmin on in blog, News, Politics with No Comments
In a high profile interview in USA Today, Mitt Romney accused President Obama of gutting the welfare work requirements to “shore up his base.”
The Romney campaign’s attacks on Obama’s welfare policy have come under attack because they are false and seen by some a coded racial appeal. The New York Times’ Tom Edsall writes that “the Romney campaign is clearly determined ‘to make this about’ race, in the tradition of the notorious 1988 Republican Willie Horton ad.”
You almost feel sorry for Mitt Romney. Here’s a man who was so inspired by his father that he’s chosen virtually the same career path but he’s half the man his father was. So we see him race baiting, flip-flopping on issues that were once dear to him and overall just being a soul-less candidate. It’s sad.
According to Think Progress Romney supported the same waiver program he’s criticizing Obama about now, more flip-flopping for soul-less Mitt.
