Do we want President Food Stamps 2.0?

Is that the platform Romney is supposed to be running on? More food stamps, more Medicaid, more public housing, more unemployment extensions and more wealth transfer? The MSM sure seems to think so.

In an interview with CNN Wednesday morning that should have been a Florida victory lap, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney made a fumble that could give rivals an attack ad sound bite.

Asked about his economic plan, Romney said repeatedly that he was not concerned with very poor Americans, but was focused instead on helping the middle class.

Romney explained that he was confident that food stamps, housing vouchers, Medicaid and other assistance would keep the poor afloat — he pledged to fix holes in that safety net “if it needs repair.” He repeated past statements that his main focus is the middle class because those people, in his opinion, have been hardest hit by the recession

If claiming that he is going to focus on the middle class is wrong, I don’t want him to be right.

    The poor always need more. They need more food stamps. They need more Medicaid. They need more months of unemployment. They need more public housing. They need more of your money.

    If Mitt has to out-pander President Food Stamps, he has his work cut out for him. I suggest the only chart single of a porn star turned one-hit-wonder for his campaign song. It perfectly captures what politicians are expected to say to the noble and respected “very poor.”

    She is actually singing about porn which makes it even more perfect.

    “But if you want to know how I really feel
    Get the cameras rolling
    Get the action going
    Baby you know my love for you is real”

    How friggin perfect is that?
