Obama On Romney: ‘It’s Like Robin Hood In Reverse’


At a fundraising stop in Connecticut on Monday, President Barack Obama compared Mitt Romney to everyone’s favorite green-tight-wearing, bow-carrying fictional character—Robin Hood. The speech was attended by hundreds of Obama supporters who each paid $500 to attend the event.

In regards to Romney’s philosophy of extending tax cuts on the wealthy, Obama remarked, “It’s like Robin Hood in reverse. It’s Romney Hood,” reported POLITCO.

Obama alluded to another fictional character in a scathing rebuke of Romney’s economic ideology. “They have tried to sell us this trickle-down, tax-cut fairy dust before. And guess what? It does not work. It didn’t work then, it won’t work now. It’s not a plan to create jobs, it’s not a plan to reduce our deficit, and it is not a plan to move our economy forward.”

However, there is no evidence that Robin Hood’s deceitful tactics improved the economy of Nottingham.
