article imageOp-Ed: Mom with rich husband = work. Mom on welfare, NOT work

By Bill Schmalfeldt     Apr 15, 2012 in Politics
Well thank goodness Mitt Romney explained it to us. Me? I was all confused. But now I see it all as clear as day.
Being a Mom when you have a wealthy hubby? That's work! Being a Mom when you are on welfare? That's NOT work!
Isn't it great when political candidates can put things into such sharp, clear and concise terms for us? When that silly lesbian mom Hilary Rosen made that nasty remark about Ann Romney never having to work a day in her life, she was just wrong, wrong, wrong! Being the mother of five children is work! Especially when you're the wife of a multi-millionaire!
There's all that scheduling you have to do, making sure the household staff is reporting on time, making sure your top people have done the proper background checks on the people who will take care of your kids because you don't want them stealing the silverware when you're not looking. Heck, by the end of the day you are just exhausted!
As Mitt explained to us, though, moms on welfare don't know the meaning of the words "dignity" or "work." Sitting around on their welfare queen butts all day, pumping out baby after baby just to get those fat welfare checks. It's a cottage industry. As Mitt reminded us last January, he proposed back when he was governor of Massachusetts to raise the amount of work required of parents on welfare so that they could “have the dignity of work.”
"I wanted to increase the work requirement,” said Romney in New Hampshire. “I said, for instance, that even if you have a child 2 years of age, you need to go to work. And people said, ‘Well that’s heartless.’ And I said, ‘No, no, I’m willing to spend more giving day care to allow those parents to go back to work. It’ll cost the state more providing that daycare, but I want the individuals to have the dignity of work.’”
Dignity. Now that's just a word, along with work, that these welfare queens do not comprehend. All they know is partying and having sex and doing drugs in their little slum dwellings so they can have more babies and get more money to spend on more partying and more drugs while their babies have nothing to eat but mac and cheese and lead paint chips.
Who among us, not raised by millionaires, doesn't remember those days when things were tough but, instead of learning about the dignity of work, our moms just sat on their fat butts and watched soap operas? Poor and middle class women just don't understand dignity the way Ann Romney does, the kind of dignity that comes from the kind of work that goes into horse dressage -- and we're not talking about putting funny clothes on horses, but on the demanding task of torturing a horse until it will walk and run the way you want it to walk or run.
Thank you, MSNBC's Chris Hayes, for pointing this out to us and giving us yet another reason to vote for Mitt Romney in November. He'll teach us ALL the dignity of work as he runs this country just like he ran Bain Capital and outsources all our jobs to India and China.
