Skip to comments.Obama dubs Romney ‘Romney Hood’ — robbing the poor to help the rich
Posted on 08/06/2012 7:13:34 PM PDT by Nachum
President Obama portrayed Mitt Romney as the opposite of Robin Hood, saying that his Republican opponent wants to take money from poorer people to give it to wealthier people. Its like Robin Hood in reverse, Obama said of Romneys tax plan, which would cut taxes across the board by 20 percent, during a fundraiser in Connecticut. Its Romney Hood. Obamas quip distils an attack that he has repeated in the last week. In order to afford just one $250,000 tax cut for somebody like Mr. Romney, 125 families like yours would have

And the GOP should counter with cutting the spending, cut the waste, cut the fraud. No more new taxes. No higher taxes.
How very presidential.
Let me guess...robbing the rich to pay the poor is “fair?”
Actually, Robin Hood attacked the tax collectors and gave the money back to the taxpayers.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
>> Its like Robin Hood in reverse, Obama said
Not true, and certainly not as bad as Marxism full speed ahead.
Robin Hood took money from the Government and gave it back to the over-taxed people. He was a tax cutter.
Gee...I’d prefer “Romney Hood” to “Bath-House Barry”.
Obama steps in a cow-pie - of truth! LOL!
Barack Hoodlum Obama
The boy king is getting all wee wee’d up again.
I smell a loser.
Where do these Dumo-crates come up with this stuff?
Obama’s internal numbers must be pretty dismal. He’s losing it(didnt have much to begin with), Hey maybe Obama can take money from all of his rich liberal hollywood buddies and give it to the middle class, let’s see how long it takes his buddies to cough up the cash
Oh, the insolent cheek of curtailing handouts that are happening at the expense of the prosperity of the people as a whole. How could Mitt ever dare to propose it? /s
“Romney Hood”. I imagine that they really thought that they were being clever over there in the Obama camp with that one. What a bunch of morons.
What an ass........
I’d call Obama, Sir Scam-a-Lot.
Yes; he took it BACK from the titular King and returned it to its proper owners.
He was “stealing” from thieves!
I remember a song when I was a kid that Seals and Crofts sang back in 1974, it was called “The King of Nothing.” That fits Baraq Hussein Ubama to a “T.”
Isn't this what happened when BHO gave tax $ to Solyndra !
Be afraid King John the Liar. Be very afraid of November, fore the Tax Payers are coming.
BTW, that makes A$$elrod Sheriff of Nottingham.
Juvenile idiot. I must ask him what ghetto he was born in. More nonsense from Barack ODrama.
The poor, by definition, have no money.
The rich EARN their money. How do you “give” something to someone that is theirs to begin with?
More communist bullcrap from the big-earred Kenyan.
Romney Hood....that’s rich coming from Robbin’ (all da) Hoods.
I don’t do crack so I’m gonna need Barry Soetoro to explain to me how somebody “robs” the “poor.” If they can be robbed, they sure as hell aren’t “poor”.
“That is Obamanable!”

The man is a first class moron.
Brave Sir Robin?
Duh, Robin Hood stole from the Government.
President Obama keeps making this ridiculous argument that tax cuts are actually government spending. Thinking along these lines requires someone to believe that all income is the rightful property of the government. Every “tax cut” which leaves more income in the hands of citizens therefore “costs” the government money. It’s a really bizarre, government-centered worldview, honestly.
America dubs Obummer Sharif of Nothingham
Thanks for posting that. Makes me want to watch the whole movie again.
Eh, Romney Hood, the backwards Robin Hood, that’s pretty lame.
Moore : What did you sing? Singers : (speaking, a bit worriedly) We sang... he steals from the poor and gives to the rich?
Moore : (looking down) Wait a tic ... blimey, this redistribution of wealth is trickier than I thought.
A brilliant businessman who turned $37 million into $66 billion portfolio getting lectured by a guy who has lost $5.2 trillion dollars (deficits) in his first job. Get the marxist clown out of there before countries refuse to buy our bonds and the US defaults.
If the Poor have no money, how can you rob them?
Oh right, you rob them because you don’t let them steal your money. That’s why Democrats say Tax Rate Cuts “cost” the Government Money.
It’s stolen from them before they steal it in the first place.
The “great uniter” is at it again. Just blast Americans who succeed against those who do not. Obama no more believes in a higher power than Khrushchev.
Nice to know that we as a people have been rewarded for the tens of thousands of dollars spent to educate the Choom Master.
Long live Pharaoh Obama, the Prince of multiplication.
Off Teleprompter, it's "You know... it's like a rubber... it's like I'm rubber, and... and... and you're like glue. Yeah, like glue. And... hee-hee... and if you say something... it will... uh... bounce off of me... yeah... and stick to you!"
Barry stole that from Jimmy carter. Reagan was Robinhood in reverse. How is this guy Obummer, getting away with telling people that Romney is raising the middle-class taxes by 2,000 a year when he takes his big tax cut. This is a LIE, but don’t expect the media to call him on it.
Is he still off the prompter?
Community organizer...mindcandy for the useful idiots.
Obama may actually be saying things dumber than Harry Reid!
That is so lame! Any slogan that needs to be explained is a failure!
While without a doubt the funniest member of one of the funniest comedy troupes ever created, John Cleese (Dennis Moore) has always been a left-wing fanatic. Furthermore, I just read Michael Palin's diary from 1969-1979, and he's about as big a leftist as Cleese. I find it amusing that like the Moore sketch, which seems to satirize redistributionists (who do we know that resembles that?), they've had other sketches such as the medieval Marxists in the Holy Grail where socialism is satirized. I was disturbed by Palin's diary by the number of slams he directed at America. Cleese is a big fan of Keith Olbermann. I saw a clip on the internet of three of Python's appearing on Olbermann's program.
