President Obama was just on the stump and he has just dubbed Romney's Tax plan that increases taxes on the middle class and the poor in order to pay for tax cuts for the rich "ROMNEYHOOD".


This is what President Obama said on the stump in Connecticut just now:

According to a pool report:

This economic crisis didn't change our character. It didn't change who we are. It just made our mission that much more urgent."

"We've got the best workers in the world, we've got the best entrepreneurs in the world." He said what's standing in our way right now "is our politics."

He blamed "the uncompromising view that says we should be going back to the old top-down economics that got us into this mess in the first place."

"The entire centerpiece" of Romney's economic plan is a $5 trillion tax cut, he said.

The president spoke of the Tax Policy Center's analysis of Romney's plan again. "It's like Robin Hood in reverse -- it's Romney-hood."

The crowd laughed and roared and whistled its approval.

"That's the choice in ths election. That's why I'm running for a second term as president.


A twitter report:

Pres. Obama: "Mr. Romney wants you to pay for tax cuts for him. It's like Robin Hood in reverse. It's Romney Hood!"
Romneyhood is now being used on twitter as #Romneyhood

Update #1

Best #Romneyhood twitter lines:

just say "I paid a lot of taxes" at zero %
Sending other people's sons and daughters to fight wars for your billionaire paymasters
bamboozling American Middle Class to hand over their Social Security, Medicare & taxes to Vampire capitalists like Romney
Paying a 13.9% tax rate on $20 million
Where Wall Street criminals are respected and union workers are treated like thugs.

Steal from the Needy to give to the #Greedy!
Update #2

The first person that I can find to call Romney's Tax Plan "Romneyhood" is Salon's Alex Seitz-Wald on August 2nd.

Romney-hood: President Obama opened a potent new line of attack on Mitt Romney yesterday, seizing on a new report showing that Romney’s tax plan would help the rich and raise taxes on the middle class. “Folks making more than $3 million a year — the top one-tenth of 1 percent — they would get a tax cut under Mr. Romney’s plan that is worth almost a quarter of a million dollars,” Obama said at a campaign stop in Ohio yesterday. “Hold on, it gets worse. My opponent says he’s going to pay for this $5 trillion plan. But under this plan, guess who gets the bill for these $250,000 tax cuts? You do. And you don’t have to take my word for it.”

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
