Well, if you thought that schedule was tough, Mitt Romney says, “BULL HONKEY! Get your ass out of the house, you lazy b*tch!”
In a January 4th Townhall Meeting at Manchester High School in Manchester, New Hampshire, Romney was asked by a college student worried about unemployment, how he would force people off welfare “limit the amount of welfare and unemployment dependency that our nation is traveling in.”
ROMNEY: I also like the idea that people who are receiving assistance, welfare assistance, have a responsibility of working. … even 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 day care to allow those parents to go back to work. It’ll cost the state more providing that daycare, but I want the individuals to have the dignity of work.”
And in less than 43 seconds, he slammed poor moms who don’t evidently “work” in his mind AND added that he felt that if you received public assistance YOU had a responsibility to “work” not someone like his wife who was lucky enough to marry/inherit rich. But of course the real kicker is that the work that mothers do is not only not work, but it’s not even dignified.
Where’s the outrage? The Twitter twatter? The forced apologies? The Sunday morning roundtable discussions about whether this stupid, one-time comment will destroy Romney’s chances in the next primary (Yeah right. Newt?).
What this comment did do though was proved Hilary Rosen’s point. So please, lay off her already!
