With the economy as bad as it is, you’d think Mitt could build a campaign around the truth. But noooooooooooooooo!
It’s just one lie after another. The “You didn’t build it” crap, the “Obama doesn’t want our brave servicemen and women to vote in Ohio” garbage, and now Mitt’s ad about welfare.
In response to states’ requests for more flexibility on welfare requirements, including from some GOP governors, the Obama administration said yes, which the GOP should view as a victory for states’ rights, one of their pet causes.
But Mitt is twisting this devolution of power to the states as Obama just letting more lazy people collect welfare checks, which is not what this is about at all. And what better issue than welfare to get that racist subtext across? He’s black, of course he wants to make it easier for people to collect welfare.
BTW, when Mitt was governor of Massachusetts, he requested waivers under the Clinton welfare reform law.
If Mitt is so cavalier about lying to us now, anybody think he’ll be honest once he’s sitting in the Oval Office?
