MR. ROMNEY: ... But let me mention another thing, and that is parents. We need moms and dads helping raise kids. Wherever possible, the — the benefit of having two parents in the home — and that's not always possible. A lot of great single moms, single dads. But gosh, to tell our kids that before they have babies, they ought to think about getting married to someone — that's a great idea because if there's a two-parent family, the prospect of living in poverty goes down dramatically. The opportunities that the child will — will be able to achieve increase dramatically.A few years ago, this would have been uncontroversial, and like praising apple pie. But Pres. Barack Obama inaccurately bragged that he was raised by a single mom, and he is entirely dependent on single women voters:
So we can make changes in the way our culture works to help bring people away from violence and give them opportunity and bring them in the American system.
in a recent New York Times/CBS News poll, single women favored Mr. Obama over his Republican rival, Mitt Romney, by 29 pointsRomney leads among married men and women, according to recent polls.
The incentives are clear. Democrats win votes by promoting single motherhood. Republicans win votes by promoting policies that favor kids having two parents.
I am going with kids having two parents. Single moms are ruining America.
