Romney Criticizes Singles at Monica Goodling's College

The first time I heard the family card played was during Al Gore's 2000 speech at the Democratic National Convention. He spoke about how he would defend the rights of "working families," and despite the fact that I was at that point working my tail off and part of a family, as every human being is, I knew that he was not talking about me.

Enter Mitt Romney, the guy who should be president if we care about competence but just can't stop pandering to the Christian Right and making himself detestable. At a speech at Monica Goodling's Christian college he took the working family uber alles theme further:
"There is no work more important to America's future than the work that is done within the four walls of the American home," Romney said. He also criticized people who choose not to get married because they enjoy the single life.
Nevermind that many single people would love to be married but just haven't found the right person (can we have some mercy, Mitt?) and that they pay way more in taxes than do people with children who claim zillions of deductions.
