I like the “Romneyhood” label. It’s almost as good as the commercial with Romney singing out of key.
Of course the voting rights thing and the welfare thing are total fabrications. Romney’s saying Obama is trying to restrict military voting in Ohio. In reality, Ohio is opening up some weekends for military ONLY and Obama wants them to open them up for everyone. He’s not trying to restrict military voting. If anything, he’s trying to be inclusive.
On welfare, several states have asked for waivers on welfare reform. Several of those are Republican governors like Rick Perry….and Mitt Romney. Now Romney is trying to change the story by saying Obama wants to just give everyone a handout. The entire welfare argument, with Newt Gingrich in the lead, is kind of race baiting. Yes, I said it. It’s preying on white voters’ fears.
