I don’t want to accuse the President of stealing my stuff, but he may very well have done that. Here he is yesterday at a campaign stop in Connecticut.
President Barack Obama is labeling opponent Mitt Romney’s tax plan as “Romney Hood,” saying it takes from the middle class and gives to the rich.
Speaking Monday night at a campaign event in Connecticut, Obama said the GOP plan “is like Robin Hood in reverse.”
Obama says Romney’s tax plan would give tax breaks to the wealthiest Americans while forcing middle-class families to pay up to $2,000 a year in additional taxes.
“Romney Hood”, “taking from the middle class (or poor) and gives to the rich”…that all came from me first! The above illustration appeared in a January 2012 post titled Romney Hood – more than six months before President Obama’s speech. Now I don’t mind the President using my stuff, but hey, a little attribution would be nice.
If you happen to run into President Obama, feel free to mention to him that Mario is feeling a bit peeved. Thanks.
Here’s a modified version I’m sending to the Obama campaign offices.
This is funny. I was just given credit for originating the Romney Hood meme at no other than Michelle Malkin’s blog. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? Not sure.
