I don't know who wrote this, but, to quote my old mother, 'truer words were never spoke.' From a speech Romney gave Tuesday night:
“For the first time, most Americans believe that our best days are behind us. This is an election in which we should be talking about the path ahead, but you don’t hear any answers coming from President Obama’s re-election campaign. That’s because he’s intellectually exhausted, out of ideas, and out of energy. And so his campaign has resorted to diversions and distractions, to demagoguing and defaming others. This is an old game in politics; what’s different this year is that the president is taking things to a new low.Exactly right. The "new low" he was referring to, I think, is this:
“It wasn’t supposed to be this way.
“In 2008, Candidate Obama said, “if you don’t have any fresh ideas, then you use stale tactics to scare voters.” He said, “if you don’t have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from.” And that, he told us, is how, “You make a big election about small things.”
“That was Candidate Obama describing the strategy that is the now the heart of his campaign.
“His campaign and his surrogates have made wild and reckless accusations that disgrace the office of the Presidency. Another outrageous charge came a few hours ago in Virginia. And the White House sinks a little bit lower.
“This is what an angry and desperate Presidency looks like.
“President Obama knows better, promised better and America deserves better.
“Over the last four years, this President has pushed Republicans and Democrats as far apart as they can go. And now he and his allies are pushing us all even further apart by dividing us into groups. He demonizes some. He panders to others. His campaign strategy is to smash America apart and then cobble together 51 percent of the pieces.
But Romney could just as well be referring to version 2.0 of this ad.
Obama says he has no problem with Biden's bizarre and disgusting "chains" comment.
Didn't Obama reveal everything you needed to know about his judgment when he chose Biden as his running mate?
Just a heartbeat away
Rudy Giuliani has serious concerns about Joey B:
I mean, there’s a real fear if, God forbid, he ever had to be entrusted with the presidency, whether he really has the mental capacity to handle it.Giuliani thinks he's just stupid, and it's certainly true that Biden's not the genius he pretends to be, but that's not his only problem. He's a vulgar, dishonest, self-aggrandizing buffoon who loves nothing as much as the sound of his own voice. (And he's also creepy. Remember this one?)
Anyway, Romney nailed it. More, please.
