Why blame Romney but not Obama?

Re Sept. 28 column by Leonard Pitts, “Demonization of poverty”

I was amused by Mr. Pitts blaming Mitt Romney in advance for the plight of the downtrodden. Mr. Pitts in his Sept. 28 column ignores the fact that the people he cites in his article are suffering now, during the tenure of Barack Obama. If Mitt Romney can be blamed in advance for the fate of the poor, why is Barack Obama not to be blamed for their present troubles? The president has been in office four years and still the poor are with us. Oh yes, I forgot, it’s George Bush’s fault.
