Mitt Romney has plenty of room for rational criticism of President Barack Obama's actions. When the GOP candidate pushes demonstrably false claims, he hurts his own credibility and insults voters.
Romney recently claimed that Obama is eliminating work requirements in the welfare system. In fact, Obama granted a waiver — requested by Republican governors — to relieve states of cumbersome federal requirements. The states can only obtain the waiver by showing their welfare programs will increase job placements.
Romney also claimed a lawsuit filed by the Obama campaign is trying to prevent members of the military from voting in Ohio. In fact, the lawsuit asks the court to block a GOP effort to prevent all Ohioans from voting early.
Voters value honesty. Romney's false claims are an insult to voters that undermine his valid criticisms of Obama.
