VIDEO! Mitt Romney Enlists In The War On Stay-At-Home-Moms (If They Are Poor And On Welfare)
Well this is unfortunate . After the Great Mommy War (Redux) of Two-Thousand-And-Twelve, which pitted the Sanctity of Motherhood and America against one lesbo (and Barack Obama), and which was second only to the Great Wonkette Commenter Riots for the year's most devastating skullfucking and bloodshed, it seems General Romney may have turncoated his own once-firmly held ideals and beliefs! You see, it turns out that he too thinks that stay-at-home-moms have never worked a day in their lives -- at least if they are on welfare. Then all of a sudden motherhood is no longer the holiest calling and most important job in the universe! So does that make Ann Romney a welfare queen? No, because her Cadillacs are not apocryphal. Up With Chris, can you roll that ancient, long-forgotten tape from all the way back in January?
“I wanted to increase the work requirement [for people on welfare],” Romney said. “I said, for instance, thateven if you have a child two years of age,you need to go to work. And people said, ‘Well that's heartless,' and I said ‘No, no, I'm willing to spend more giving daycare to allow those parents to go back to work. It'll cost the state more providing that daycare, butI want the individuals to have the dignity of work.’”
It's so weird, it's almost like the Romney camp will say anything if they think it will give them an advantage, whether they believe it or not! Here, let us watch it together, and then go find a lazy stupid welfare mom to jump for being poor.
