You’re certainly welcome to do your own Google search for “Robin Hood in reverse” to uncover just how tired this line has become. Tonight, though, President Barack Obama tried to give it a fresh spin by coining the term “Romney Hood” at a Stamford, Conn., fundraiser.

Conservatives, however, seem to remember the left’s favorite folk hero a little differently.

Funny, I remember Robin Hood as the guy who took money from the corrupt gov't and gave it back to those who earned it.

In a sign of the times, a lot of people apparently have missed the Robin Hood reference entirely and have mistaken #RomneyHood for a place … a very bad place. But if you’re going to get the story wrong, you might as well get it really wrong, right?

#RomneyHood Where Hispanics self-deport and African-Americans lose the right to vote.

#RomneyHood The land where "I'm rubber you're glue, everything you say bounces off me and sticks on you" is considered cogent commentary!

Obama made the comments at the first of two Connecticut fundraisers where he is expected to raise more than $2 million. Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein is hosting the second, a $35,800-per-plate dinner, at his mansion, which is located nowhere near RomneyHood.
