Romney responds to Obama’s ‘Romney Hood’ quip with ‘Obamaloney’


President Obama has found a devastating summation of Mitt Romney’s tax plan.

“It’s like Robin Hood in reverse,” the president told supporters last night in Stamford, Connecticut. “It’s Romney Hood.”

The crowd roared with cheers and laughter.

Obama was referring to the independent, non-partisan Tax Policy Center analysis of Romney’s tax plan, which concluded that it would raise taxes on middle class families with children by an average of $2,000 to fund a massive tax cut for the wealthy.

“They have tried to sell us this trickle-down tax cut fairy dust before,” Obama added. “And guess what?  It does not work.”

Today, Romney countered with a lame I’m rubber, you’re glue line (insert drum roll here):

“Obamaloney.” (insert “Price is Right” losing horn here)

“He’s serving up a dish which is simply in contradiction of the truth,” Romney said today in an interview with Fox News.  ”And it relates to everything from how I’m going to help the middle class to tax policy. He’s just simply saying things that are not accurate.”

Romney offered no specifics.  Translation: “Just trust me, President Obama and the Tax Policy Center are not telling the truth.”
