Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney attacked occupy Oval Office, aka Barrack Obama, for waiving portions of the welfare-to-work law. At a Chicago campaign stop, Romney pledged to reverse the July order that disembowels welfare reform. “We will end a culture of dependency and restore a culture of good, hard work,” Romney said.
Naturally, White House press secretary Jay Carney called Romney’s charges “blatantly dishonest.” Carney’s misrepresentative spin continued: “This administration’s policy will strengthen the program by giving states the opportunity to employ more effective ways to help people get off welfare and into a job.”
For their part, a new Romney campaign ad accurately asserts that “Obama guts welfare reform” saying “Under Obama’s plan, you wouldn’t have to work and wouldn’t have to train for a job. They just send you your welfare check.”
Of course, to White House “progressives” it does not matters that The Health and Human Services Department directive permits states to ask for waivers from the work requirement found in the existing welfare law. They are going to attack, smear, invent and misrepresent every fact necessary to convince low information voters to cast their ballots against Romney, no matter what.
Coincidently, the current White House occupant is now blaming state and local governments, as well as Congress for the 14.1 percent black unemployment rate.
“There are a lot more things we could be doing. To get them done, we need cooperation of Congress. We got the payroll tax portion of [my American Jobs Act] done, but what we didn’t get done is the assistance I was proposing to the states to help them hire back teachers, firefighters, and first responders, because one of the weakest parts of this recovery has been state and local government hiring. Given the weaknesses of the construction industry, the American Jobs Act proposed that we rebuild schools, roads, bridges, airport, and ports. That would provide small businesses with opportunities as contractors and vendors in this rebuilding process. Again, Congress needs to act.” Obama stated.
Were George W. Bush, Sarah Palin, the Tea Party, economic troubles in the Eurozone, the Arab Spring, a Japanese tsunami or ATMs and ticketing kiosks suddenly unavailable for blame?
Obama then took for granted a big part of his core constituency by saying “I’m not the president of black America. I’m the president of the United States of America.”
If one is to believe the pathological wealth redistributor in thief, he and his policies are never to blame for any of the existing malaise. If only all those poor unfortunate souls who are not part of the “progressive” “intellectual elite” were capable of understanding. Then his “progressive” holiness could explain to them how his policies are great…for the hundred thousandth time.
The idea that America is in deep financial trouble and that the current “progressive” administration is intentionally inflicting damage upon America and its economy is supported by the enactment of a seemingly endless string of “progressive” policies that run 180 degrees counter to how America and its economy are designed to work.
But one politician, no matter how radical, fringe, extreme, anti-American, “progressive” they are is solely to blame for the current situation.
Thanks to “go along to get along” “establishment” Republicans who abandoned Conservative principles and co-opted the “progressive” Democratic tactic of bringing home the bacon to buy votes; from January 2007 to January 2011 Republicans were in the legislative minority. After the 2008 election, they were so outnumbered they were powerless to stop a “progressive” agenda bent on advancing an extreme, fringe, radical, anti-American wish list “progressives” spent decades concocting.
But the Tea Party’s work is not done. It is only now beginning.
“progressives” and their policies have been assailing America for over a century. Based on what has happened since the 2010 election, expectations that more than 100 years of damage will be reversed in one election cycle are unrealistic.
For some Tea Party Americans, Mitt Romney might not be their first pick for president. At least Romney is an American who knows first-hand how to achieve success in business. Better still, Romney was not raised overseas by Communists. This is a far cry from the current clueless affirmative action clown who between rounds of golf is working to “fundamentally transform” America into a Socialist democracy. Besides, Romney’s campaign is showing a willingness to fight, something John McCain’s 2008 campaign failed to demonstrate.
Americans need to stay focused, remain diligent and work hard to elect Conservative Americans to every office possible. It could be the White House, the U.S. Senate, Congress, Governor, Mayor or the local dog catcher.
Keep the faith and get out the American vote!
