Mitt Romney's presidential campaign released a television ad Tuesday bashing President Barack Obama for implementing a welfare policy that Romney supported when he was governor of Massachusetts.

"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 announced a plan to gut welfare reform by dropping work requirements."

Romney's ad doesn't mention that Republican states sought the waiver policy. In a release defending its waiver request from conservative backlash last month, the office of Utah Gov. Richard 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."

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.



Oh, the irony. Maybe Mittens should just run against Romney 2005?

.... Republican governors supporting welfare without a work requirement? :confused:

Why do I get the feeling the requirement is nothing more than a packaged deal, and they are going after something else.

Kind of like supporting the previous version of Obamacare before it was Obamacare? Is that how you guys justify stuff? "Well the GOP would never support that..they must be attacking something different"
