Republicans are building a case against Obama

Further to this morning’s post, here is an RNC ad that takes square aim at Obama’s attempt to abolish the work requirement rule that was a cornerstone of Bill Clinton’s welfare reform. 

The White House is trying to stonewall this.  They don’t want to admit the obvious, and they are trying to hide behind the Secretary of HHS and some mealy mouthed language about empowering the states.  But the intent and desire of the Obama Administration couldn’t be any more clear.  As I said this morning, Obama has again revealed his ideology of government dependency and his core belief that since you didn’t build it, you don’t even need to try to make it.
