</div></div>

Yeah, really!

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">WASHINGTON -- Mitt Romney's presidential campaign released a television ad Tuesday bashing President Barack Obama for implementing a welfare policy <span style='font-size: 20pt'>that Romney supported when he was governor of Massachusetts.</span>

"In 1996, President Clinton and a bipartisan Congress helped end welfare as we know it," the ad's voiceover says. "But on July 12th, President Obama quietly <span style='font-size: 14pt'><u>announced a plan to gut welfare </span>reform by dropping work requirements.</u>" </div></div>

<u>This has been proved to be a total lie by ALL fact checkers but Mitt still repeats it.
</u>
<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Welfare, formally known as the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program, is administered by states within federal rules. Last month, the Department of Health and Human Services invited states to apply for waivers from some rules in order to run "demonstration projects" so that states could "consider new, more effective ways to meet the goals of TANF, particularly helping parents successfully prepare for, find, and retain employment."

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>Romney's ad doesn't mention that Republican states sought the waiver policy.</span> In a release defending its waiver request from conservative backlash last month, the office of Utah Gov. Gary Herbert (R) said, "Utah's request for a waiver stems from a desire for increased customization of the program to maximize employment among Utah’s welfare recipients."

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>The ad also doesn't mention that the Republican Governors Association asked Congress for even broader welfare waivers in 2005, in a letter signed by 29 Republican governors, including Romney.</span>

"Increased waiver authority, allowable work activities, availability of partial work credit, and the ability to coordinate state programs are all important aspects of moving recipients from welfare to work," the governors wrote. </div></div>

Read it.

HERE is something that you won't see on Fox and the Socialist Mitt Romney! <span style='font-size: 26pt'>FREE STUFF</span>

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney’s camp is defending a controversial program he created that handed out <span style='font-size: 26pt'>free wheels to Massachusetts welfare recipients</span> — including state-funded insurance and AAA memberships — even as the plan drew fire from conservatives the former Bay State governor is wooing.

“Over 80 percent of participants have moved off of welfare,” said Romney spokeswoman Gail Gitcho.

Under Romney’s Car Ownership Program, the state paid out one year’s insurance, inspection, excise tax, title, registration, repairs and a AAA membership for cars that were donated to welfare recipients. Under the plan, those who lost their jobs and ended up back on welfare were allowed to keep their free wheels.

The program cost taxpayers about $400,000 in 2006, but Gitcho said it saved nearly $1 million in welfare payouts over three years.

Judson Phillips, founder of Tea Party Nation, said the idea of free rides for welfare recipients won’t sit well with party conservatives who already view Romney with a jaundiced eye.

“<span style='font-size: 23pt'>It sounds like a program that President Obama would come up with,</span>” Phillips said. “Everything that Mitt Romney has done as governor shows where his head and where his ideology is. He is trying to tell Republicans that he is conservative, and he’s just not being truthful.” </div></div>

Oh my!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
