Obama did in fact do away with work requirement for welfare

N.Y. Times fact checkers: Bed rest is work!
Poor Mickey Kaus. He’s the liberal intellectual (not an oxymoron – he’s the last known living “liberal intellectual”) lefties on TV are usually stealing from, but now that this welfare-reform maven has concluded that Romney’s welfare ad is basically correct, liberals refuse to acknowledge his existence.
The non-Fox media have formed a solid front in denouncing Romney’s welfare ad for daring to point out that Obama has gutted the work requirements of the 1996 welfare-reform bill.
The New York Times claims that Romney’s ad “falsely” charges Obama with eliminating work requirements. CNN rates the ad “false.” Underemployed hack Howard Fineman says Romney’s ad “is just flat out wrong on the facts” and “that every fair analyst, every fact checker” has said it’s “just factually wrong.”
