Romney Book: ‘Nonworking Parents’ Produce ‘Indolent And Unproductive’ Children
By Alex Seitz-Wald on Apr 16, 2012 at 11:45 am

As the presidential campaign has become embroiled in “mommy wars,” a passage from Mitt Romney’s autobiography sheds more light on what seems to be his bifurcated prescription for mothers.

For most women, Romney maintains that a choice to work or to stay at home with the kids should be regarded as equally valid, his campaign made clear last week. But for poor women who receive government assistance, staying home is not an option — they should work. Video recovered yesterday shows that Romney said in January that he wants to “increase the work requirement” for mothers who receive welfare. “Those parents to go back to work,” he explained.

A passage from Romney’s book, No Apology: The Case For American Greatness, elaborates on this. In it, he argues that children of “nonworking parents” will be conditioned to have “an indolent and unproductive life:”

In some quarters, however, the American work ethic is waning. Some people devote themselves to find ways not to work. Some seem to take a perverse kind of pride in being slipshod or lackadaisical. In many cases, where our work culture has deteriorated, shortsighted government policies share a good part of the blame.

Welfare without work erodes the spirit and the sense of self-worth of the recipient. And it conditions the children of nonworking parents to an indolent and unproductive life. Hardworking parents raise hardworking kids; we should recognize that the opposite is also true. The influence of the work habits of our parents and other adults around us as we grow up has lasting impact.

Ok misfits - no matter how hard you try (and try you keep doing), welfare recipients are not even close to being in the same category as SAHM.     A SAHM of SAHD does not get a handout from the government.    One parent WORKS (foreign word to you I know), while the other stays home to raise the children.    Not rocket science here.   The couple makes sacrifices to be able to do so.    A welfare recipient is making no sacrifices as the taxpayer is paying for their lifestyle.  

See the difference.   Romney is 100% correct here.    We love that you keep at it though.   We couldn't write this stuff if we wanted to -- all most delicious, and most damning for your Messiah.

The chosen one. The anointed one. The Magic Negro. The Inaction Figure. By Mattel. Has he cause the rising sea levels to recede yet, as promised ? He bungled the gulf oil spill so bad it looked like he was walking on water with snowshoes.
There were only two options for gender. At last count there are at least 12, according to libs. By that standard, I'm a male lesbian.

This paragraph

is absolutely true. 

It certainly is but getting a non-working DUmmie to see it is impossible. They raise the bestest kids, if only the cops would quit hounding them.
“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of ‘liberalism’, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.” - Norman Thomas, U.S. Socialist Party presidential candidate 1940, 1944 and 1948

"America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within."  Stalin
