Shock and Awe….
OMG! The debate was last week but, the pundits and pro-BO jour-no-lists are still whining and making excuses. Joey B has taken a week off to get prepped for the upcoming debate with our wunderkin Paul Ryan. Axelrot is personally prepping him for the coming smackdown. Ryan is quick and Thursday’s debate is going to be more shock and awe for the BO camp. The VP debate is usually a yawner and not very important but, the BO camp is taking this one dead seriously. The new PEW POLL is devastating to the BO camp with Romney taking the lead. Amazing what 90 minutes has done to change so many minds about Romney, particularly since the BO team had painted him as a caricature.
The president can’t run on his record, and he isn’t proposing a second term agenda. All he has to run on is the caricature of Mitt Romney that his campaign, his surrogates, and liberal opinion makers in the press have been fashioning for a year. Their goal has been to prevent the election from becoming a referendum on the incumbent, which the Romney campaign had clearly hoped it could be, and to make it not even a choice election but a referendum on the challenger. Obama seemed to have a remarkable degree of success with this approach, but the debate represented Romney’s response: Rather than continue to insist that the election should simply be a referendum on Obama, Romney effectively presented a case for seeing it as a choice between two agendas, and presented his own proposals and vision in his own terms. The Obama campaign had been able to paint Romney in scary colors for months because Romney had declined to describe himself and his agenda much. Now that he’s finally running for president, the Democrats have a problem.
A 12 point swing in Romney’s favor was the boost the naysayers in conservative circles needed to see. Maybe now they’ll stop whining and gnashing their teeth over how Mitt is running his campaign. The next Town Hall debate is going to be a really good one.
Obama’s campaign is talking up its plan to roll out a new, tougher Obama who will challenge Romney’s slick evasions. But a town-hall meeting is a whole different animal. In a one-on-one debate, you can fillet your opponent. A town-hall meeting consists of undecided voters pressing the candidates for answers. The focus of the event is on answering the questions of the voters. Using their questions to assail your opponent is bad form — indeed, the Regular Voters who ask the questions, and serve as proxies for the public, can be counted on to implore the candidates to stop attacking each other so much. Romney will use the town hall to proclaim his deep and abiding concern for all of America, and Obama will have little chance to disprove it.
Seems there is another scandal unfolding in the BO camp. This one has to do with foreign contributions that threaten our sovereignty. Contributions up to $200.00 do not have to be reported. The BO camp does not have credit card security checks on its online donations page, Romney does. The Government Accountability Institute has released a 108 page report and is being flooded with tips on illegal foreign donations.
GAI says the tip box on its new website, www.CampaignFundingRisks.com, has been flooded with new research leads and information on possible illegal foreign campaign contributions.
Remember the rumors floating about in 2008 over BO’s foreign illegal contributions? Looks as if that is no longer just a rumor. I guess BO is now counted in the “too big to fail” category too. What does it say about a sitting POTUS when he resorts to anything to win?
The BO camp lied to the American people about Fast and Furious and hid from the public view other gun running schemes, the attacks by terrorists in Benghazi, not to mention the lies about “investments” in Green Energy which were used to prop up BO’s cronies and bundlers. His Administration incited rioting at our Embassies in the ME and Africa by publicly touting a film-that-wasn’t-a-film to cover for their own Security errors which caused the deaths of four Americans. His campaign staff call Mitt Romney “brazen”? Well, this Administration has brazenly lied and, after saying they would be the most “transparent” governing body ever, used the power of the Executive Branch to intimidate whistleblowers and hide the truth from the American people. When BO talks about the “smallness” of our politics, he needs to look in the mirror. He reflects everything that is wrong with politics by his smarmy, ugly, campaign messages, mostly proven false. He focuses on Big Bird while his foreign policy is a mess. While he plays footsie with Putin, promising more “flexibility” in his second term, Russia is pushing Iran and Syria into a war in the ME. Does anyone really believe this won’t affect us? BO’s “Arab Spring” has turned into an Arab Winter with the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood. We definitely don’t need 4 more years of failure. In contrast Mitt Romney’s foreign policy ideas are more in line with the America we know and love. Text of his foreign policy speech at VMI is in the Wall Street Journal, here is just an excerpt; Read it all
This is what makes America exceptional: It is not just the character of our
country—it is the record of our accomplishments. America has a proud history of
strong, confident, principled global leadership—a history that has been written
by patriots of both parties. That is America at its best. And it is the
standard by which we measure every President, as well as anyone who wishes to be
President. Unfortunately, this President’s policies have not been equal to our
best examples of world leadership. And nowhere is this more evident than in the
We have taken the full measure of Obama’s term of office and found him seriously lacking. It is not the color of his skin, it is the content of his character and his far left ideology we oppose. Vote Romney/Ryan 2012 for leadership for a better America. He won’t just phone it in!
