Credit where credit is due: the creator of the most devastating nickname of the 2012 presidential election is Tim Pawlenty. During the Republican primary, the former Minnesota governor characterized Mitt Romney's Massachusetts health-care policy as "Obamneycare." It stuck.
President Obama's new nickname for Romney will not eclipse the genius of Pleasantville extra Tim Pawlenty, but it's pretty good. CNN reports: "Adding a new attack line on Monday to his stump speech, the president railed against rival Mitt Romney's tax proposals, saying they amount to 'Robin Hood in reverse... It's Romney Hood,' the president added to loud applause from 500 supporters in a Stamford, Connecticut ballroom."
"Romney Hood" sounds like the world's whitest gated community.
