Obama Quips "Romney-Hood" ~ story via Politico
"The entire centerpiece" of Romney's economic plan is a $5 trillion tax cut, he said.
The president spoke of the Tax Policy Center's analysis of Romney's plan again. "It's like Robin Hood in reverse -- it's Romney-hood."
The crowd laughed and roared and whistled its approval.
"That's the choice in this election. That's why I'm running for a second term as president."
President Obama recently said the biggest regret of his first term was not telling better stories. He’s trying to make up for it now, but his stories just aren’t true. There’s only one candidate in this race who’s going to raise taxes on the American people – and that’s Barack Obama. While he’s used taxpayer dollars to grow government and reward his donors, middle-class Americans have seen fewer jobs, lower incomes, and less hope for the future. Mitt Romney has a plan for a stronger middle class – and, unlike President Obama, a record of accomplishment behind it.
~ Romney spokesman Ryan Williams
Obama calls Mitt Romney a reverse Robin Hood, "Romney Hood." Russell Crowe relieved to find out he's no longer the most boring Robin Hood.

From Film Industry Network
Top actors to play ‘Romney Hood’
1 : Alan Rickman : If he can pull off an American accent it would be nice to see a role reversal of the Sheriff of Nottingham now playing the lead in Obama’s new film.
2 : Michael Madsen : He’s got the gruff voice, the imposing charisma, and a cool, relaxed approach that could suit a cunning yet devious Romney Hood character.
3 : Jim Carrey : He would bring an edgy, unpredictable, yet slightly megalomaniac approach to the role.
4 : Charlie Sheen : He’s already been cast as a President this year, but Sheen could bring many angles to Romney Hood that could turn this into a comedy roast.
5 : Tom Cruise : I think Cruise could bring back some of his Mission Impossible suave, mixed with his thuggish ‘collateral’ character.
