  •  Heard the Chris Hayes (8+ / 0-)

    report on Up re: Mitt suggesting that women on assistance should get jobs so they can have the dignity of work. It's equivalent to Newt's brilliant plan to have inner city children clean their own schools because they have no role models to teach them the value and pride in having a job.

    It is beyond me how this type of thinking - and talking - wins votes.  At this stage almost everyone I know needs two incomes to sustain a household and I know plenty of people who have had to rely on public assistance to meet their basic needs over that last few years. I doubt I am alone - gone are the days of assuming that middle class folks think everyone needing a hand is somehow different (ie lazy welfare queens) because now "they" are their friends and neighbors. The Mitt et al disconnect is amazingly getting bigger.

    •  Romney is an incredible liar! (5+ / 0-)

      Expect more of this bullshit to come.  

      Chris Hayes nailed him cold.  

      You can't on the one hand "shout out to stay at home moms" and on the other hand say that moms should have the "dignity of work" outside of the home.  It's an incredible contradiction.

      That's the point that the blogger is not making.  Basically, we can cut to the chase on this one.  Mitt Romney was once again caught contradicting himself.
