Mitt Romney surely has no idea that his 47 percent remarks have launched kids across the nation into a paranoid, maniacal frenzy. Sure, just days ago, before the secret Romney tapes were released, your son or daughter was probably perfectly content having hot meals served to them and their neatly folded clean laundry delivered to their bedrooms. Well, that was then and this is now.
Now frazzled children everywhere have a terror-induced spring in their step for fear they will be the next target on Romney's list. They don't want to be lumped in with that awful 47 percent. Not that! Homework hour is for the weak! Dreams of college are only for pathetic moochers! After all, everyone knows those entitled young scholars don't pay a dime of federal income tax.
It's all about hard work now. Because all Americans have a fair shot if they work hard, right? Right?!!! Let's take a look at some of the effects Mitt's comments are having on children.
