The good news? The economy is so bad even the “con artists are giving up” on their various scams. All except the top flim-flam con man that is. He’s moving FORWARD with his scams.
Yup, things are bad all around. It’s hard out here, even for pimps.
Wanna know what else is difficult? Keeping track of Obama scams, flim-flams, lies, distractions, stunts, bamboozlements, race-baitings, fake wars, real wars, past broken promises, present broken promises, future broken promises, panders, evasions, tricks, trades, calculated tantrums, calculated sneers, calculated snubs, manipulations, gimmicks, not to mention the golfing, vacations, policy fiascoes, personal obnoxiousness, and the sleeveless partner, is really really difficult. But you have got to keep focused. You can’t cover all the above. You can only prioritize and try to track the trends and overviews of all the above. It’s what we try to do. It’s what we advise Mitt Romney to do.
It’s easier said than done. But as he has thus far mostly done, it is what Mittens Willard Romney should continue to do. Avoid distractions Mitt!
The way this election cycle is going to proceed is that groups outside the campaign have promised to tackle a lot of the issues Obama wants to distract with as well as the advertising which directly attacks Barack Obama in a most negative way. The Romney campaign proper will be able to stay positive and stay focused on the most important issues. By that we mean the economy.
Now we can hear the howls from the phony Obama campaign and well meaning deluded people who are properly concerned with the state of campaign financing. But really, it is time to grow up on campaign financing. Does anyone in the Democratic Left really think that either party is not beholden to the wealthy (“stinkin’ rich” to the Occupy Wall Street dupes)?
Remember when John Edwards ran his popular-in-the-Democratic-Left “Two Americas” campaign? “Oh the evil rich” moaned pretty Johnny as he built his huge house. Meanwhile handsome Johnny was busy rubbing the bunny for the honey:
“Interior designer Bryan Huffman told the courtroom that Rachel “Bunny” Mellon was unhappy that Edwards tried hiding his relationship with Rielle Hunter using some of the $725,000 that Mellon had funneled to him during the 2008 presidential campaign, The Associated Press reported.
“She thought maybe you should probably pay for your girlfriend yourself,” Huffman testified.
Many in the courtroom laughed — and Edwards even smiled, according to the AP.
Mellon also gave $6.4 million to organizations tied to Edwards’ presidential run, and after he dropped out of the race in January 2008, aide Andrew Young requested an additional $40 to $50 million for Edwards’ poverty foundation, Huffman testified.
“[Mellon] was rather apoplectic at the size of the figure they requested. She was really upset,” Huffman said. “She said, ‘I cannot believe that the senator really wanted me for my money all along.’”
Did you notice? That was all before Citizens United. Millions upon millions for handsome Johnny as he roared about helping the poor – while Flukeing Reille whom we assume could not afford the contraception. It’s a War On Women!
Or maybe it’s not a War on Women by Republicans but a War On Women by Obama Dimocrats – says Anderson Cooper. Cooper? Cooper? If you’ve lost the silver fox, you’ve lost the war.
Hey, did you notice? We just got distracted. We were talking about Romney not getting distracted and then we darn well got distracted talking about pretty boy Edwards. He sure is pretty isn’t he? Darn, we almost got distracted again talking about his flaxen waxen hair. Then we got distracted by the War on Women and the silver fox.
It’s easy to get distracted. Mitt Romney is going to have to stay focused and let others tackle issues other than the big issues, such as the economy. Occupy Wall Street? Steer clear Mitt. Let others lead the charge (Video: Hannity battles with Occupy Wall Street organizer for 10 minutes) against distractions.
On issue after issue, Mitt Romney should steer clear and stay focused on the economy (as he has mostly been doing). That Bin Laden Mission Accomplished Taxpayer Funded Publicity Stunt Election Tour? Navy Seals will tackle that one (and More Navy SEALs coming forward to criticize Obama for aftermath of Bin Laden raid?)
Romney knows these outside the campaign groups are going to mostly stick to the issues Obama wants to distract with while he himself sticks to the economy. That’s not to say that Romney might occasionally take some pokes at some of Obama’s most obvious distractions and gimmicks. That’s not to say that the outside groups might not tackle some of the more awkward Obama economic claims and ridiculous slogans such as Forward – for Obama “Forward” means continually going backward:
“Looks like Barack Obama’s new campaign slogan will be incredibly popular … with his opponents. American Crossroads launched a new ad yesterday titled “Backward,”explaining that economic progress has moved in that direction rather than forward for the last three years. More people end up on food stamps, more people drop out of the work force, and the only thing moving forward is … well, watch the clip:”
Romney is going to have to restrict himself to the economy while other Obama schemes are addressed by Romney ally organizations.
Distractions are many. But keep focused. Today April unemployment numbers were published and the big news is that more than half a million Americans gave up looking for jobs. Of course this disaster meant the unemployment rate went down. Huh? We explained this in early February – Obama’s Government By Purposeful Disaster:
“It becomes increasingly impossible to question the notion that Barack Obama is purposefully destructive. [snip]
Consider: The more the economy deteriorates the more Barack Obama profits politically. Americans forced in desperation from even bothering to look for jobs leads to a drop in the unemployment rate and Barack Obama smirks a clown smile and goes on yet another vacation. [snip]
It’s government by willful, purposeful, destruction of America for personal political profit – but it won’t work to save this corrupt clown from Chicago.
On each of these issues Barack Obama pretends to vote “present” or both “yes” and “no” in the HOPE that Americans are as stupid as he thinks they are. After all, Barack reasons, they did elect him so they really are stupid.
But reality, like justice, has its own wheel which grinds slowly but inexorably. On each issue Obama’s chickens are coming home – ready to poop.”
The chickens won’t poop directly on Obama’s grey head though unless Romney ties them up to the roof of his car and tours America showing Americans what is really happening. What is happening? “Unemployment rate at 8.1%, only 115K jobs added, participation rate shrinks again to new low“.
Romney has to tie up some other chickens to the roof of his car and have them poop directly on Obama’s head. One of those chickens has to be Ted Turner. Mr. CNN has now joined George Soros and Jimmy Carter in stating that Romney won’t be such a frightening president. Turner thinks Romney “would probably make a good president.”
We’re much more doubtful about Mittens than Ted, George and Jimmy. We do know that Barack Obama has got to go. From that basic fact, we won’t get distracted.
