Politico columnist Roger Simon claims that Romney’s welfare ad is a “dog whistle” because he believes the ad is suggesting that a black president is now saying “minorities don’t have to work for their welfare checks, they just get it in the mail for sitting around watching TV.”
But Krauthammer hits right back saying “anytime an real issue is brought up here, all of a sudden it’s a silent dog whistle than only liberals hear” and goes on to suggest that if Obama where white like Bill Clinton and had done this, there’d be the same attacks from the right. He continues to explain why the ad is accurate, that indeed Obama did gut welfare.
