Willard the Sociopath continues to spread his outright damned lie that Obama has dropped the work requirement for welfare benefits, even though he's been publicly exposed on it. The reason he continues to do this is simple, as Charles Pierce explains:
Over the weekend, I wrote that Willard Romney, once my governor and onetime human being, had surrendered what was left of his soul to the base of his party by choosing a zombie-eyed granny starver for his vice-president. Little did I know that, three days later, Willard would go diving into the deepest, oldest, foulest sewer in American politics to retrieve the blackened shards of Strom Thurmond's soul for a replacement.
There is nothing for it now but than to say, flat-out, that Willard Romney has decided that the only way he can become president is to become a racist and to appeal to the racist base of his party. This is the second ad in as many weeks centered on the general theme of The Negro President Wants To Give Your Money To The Black People Like Him....
You see, one of the great themes of conservative history in this country is known as The Ni**ers Are Taking My Money. Even though the majority of people getting public assistance in America are white, it doesn't matter. You can always stir up right-wing hatred by appealing to the image of lazy Negroes lying around living like kings on the welfare checks provided by hard-workin', God-fearin' white folks. Willard's not stupid. He's lying to get people like the racist right-wingers to vote for him.
And you say you STILL haven't sent money to President Obama's reelection fund? Well, let's take care of that right now. Just go here.
Folks, Romney has a BILLION DOLLARS in right-wing money to spread his lying filth. WE NEED YOUR HELP FOR REAL. Anything you can contribute would be good. Anything at all.
We have to stop this lying SOB and his little Medicare-killing sidekick from getting into office.
This country needs YOU.
