Pic Of The Moment: What A Difference Three Months Make



[div style="width: 520px; padding: 20px; background-color: #e6e6e6;"]Mitt Romney made his first public remarks Friday on the controversy over a top Democratic strategist criticizing his wife for her past as a stay-at-home mother.

While speaking at the National Rifle Association's annual meeting in St. Louis, the likely GOP presidential candidate introduced Ann Romney as "a hero of mine."

"I happen to believe that all moms are working moms, and if you have five sons, your work is never over," Romney said, as his wife joined him on stage.

2. The Obama camp has plenty to pummel Rmoney all summer long using his own flip floppy words

Let's see if they do.

3. More...

Think Progress reports:

For most women, Romney maintains that a choice to work or to stay at home with the kids should be regarded as equally valid, his campaign made clear last week. But for poor women who receive government assistance, staying home is not an option -- they should work. ...

A passage from Romney's book, No Apology: The Case For American Greatness, elaborates on this. In it, he argues that children of "nonworking parents" will be conditioned to have "an indolent and unproductive life:"

In some quarters, however, the American work ethic is waning. Some people devote themselves to find ways not to work. Some seem to take a perverse kind of pride in being slipshod or lackadaisical. In many cases, where our work culture has deteriorated, shortsighted government policies share a good part of the blame.

Welfare without work erodes the spirit and the sense of self-worth of the recipient. And it conditions the children of nonworking parents to an indolent and unproductive life. Hardworking parents raise hardworking kids; we should recognize that the opposite is also true. The influence of the work habits of our parents and other adults around us as we grow up has lasting impact.

6. There isn't an iota of difference between that attitude ....

... and the attitudes of slave-owners in Antebellum America. THAT's what 'Original Consitutional Intent' is all about!!!

4. Mitt believes the welfare queen meme

He can't help himself, he has no real world experience so he has to listen to what the assholes tell him. He doesn't really even know what the unemployment rate is either. His simple solutions may sound good to some people but are impossible when dealing with reality.

5. What "difference"? The Mitt-wit regards 'work' on the Rmoney Plantation as necessary

... for others to maintain him in the lifestyle to which he was born. He's Miss Scarlett ... and his mission is to return us all to the antebellum times when all was right with the world. Far right. He's no racist, though. So stop saying that. He just doesn't give a shit what color his slaves are.



Mammy does the 'work' and Mom just holds the whip.

7. Perhaps he should look into the cost of daycare and going rates for remedial jobs.

 

Working out of the house only to cover the cost for daycare is counterproductive at best.

11. The Mittens particle may have been found.

I saw the double image, and at 120 degrees, I saw this:

"Mysterious Particle Found After Decades of Searching
3:03 PM - An elusive particle that is its own antiparticle may have been found, ..."

12. Mil Máscaras should have so many faces.

Mitt Máscaras may be more fitting for Romney. He has a face for every issue. Harvey "Two Face" Dent feels normal around Mitt.
