(CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama told reporters at the White House on Monday that one of the things someone learns as president of the United States is that “you can't just make stuff up."

In rebutting assertions by Mitt Romney's presidential campaign that the Obama administration is waiving the work requirement rules for welfare recipients, Obama said, “The truth of the matter is you can't just make stuff up. That’s one thing you learn as president of the United States. You get called in to account."
