We gave pretty much the same advice to John McCain in 2008. Mitt Romney better listen to our advice even though right now Obama looks like dog meat.
Recent boobery from Obama has made even his most Hopium addled supporters realize his campaign of bamboozlement and reelection is in trouble. The recent Obama buffoon analysis on the state of the American economy as “fine” means that Big Media will turn the WORM (What Obama Really Meant) for Obama.
Today the scream of HELP! to Big Media from the hapless Obama reelection saps came loud and clear. From Jay Carney to press corps: You people ought to do your jobs and report the context of Obama’s “private sector” comments.
This request from Carney to Big Media is direct: don’t report what Obama actually said, report what we say Obama really meant. Recall what we wrote in 2008 and watch the video Mitt Romney better watch:
“In the last debate John McCain stated nailing down Sen. Obama’s various tax proposals is like nailing Jell-O to the wall. McCain should not have restricted his critique merely to Obama’s “tax proposals”.
Recall, at the height of the Obama gay-bashing and race-baiting campaign – South Carolina – Hillary Clinton spoke about Obama and his record and accountability:
CLINTON: Well, I couldn’t agree more. But I do think that your record and what you say does matter. And when it comes to…
… a lot of the issues that are important in this race, it is sometimes difficult to understand what Senator Obama has said, because as soon as he is confronted on it, he says that’s not what he meant. [snip]
Now, why is this important? It’s important because I think elections are about the future. But how do you determine what will happen in the future? Well, you have to look to the record, you have to look to what we say in campaigns, and what we have done during our careers.
And I want to be just very explicit about this. We are not, neither my campaign nor anyone associated with it, are in any way saying you did not oppose the war in Iraq.
You did. You gave a great speech in 2002 opposing the war in Iraq. That was not what the point of our criticism was.
It was after having given that speech, by the next year the speech was off your Web site. By the next year, you were telling reporters that you agreed with President Bush in his conduct of the war. And by the next year, when you were in the Senate, you were voting to fund the war time after time after time.
So it was more about the distinction between words and action. And I think that is a fair assessment for voters to make.
We do believe Mitt Romney will be better financed that Barack Obama this election cycle. The Romney advantage might be as much as a billion dollars. But it won’t be enough of an advantage to overcome Big Media’s protection of its stooge Barack Obama.
Mitt Romney is running for President. Ostensibly Romney’s opponent is Barack Obama. Romney’s real opponent, Romney’s real enemy however is the Big Media Party. The Big Media Party has its own agenda and interests.
Romney should stick to the important issues:
“The net worth of the American family has fallen to its lowest level in two decades, according to government data released Monday, driven by a more than 40 percent drop in their stakes in their homes.
The Federal Reserve’s detailed survey of consumer finances showed families’ median wealth plunged from $126,400 in 2007 to $77,300 in 2010 — a 39 percent decline. That put them on par with median wealth in 1992.
The Fed’s data underscore the depth of the wounds of the Great Recession and how far many families remain from healing.”
But it is not only the “important issues” that Romney must address. While Mitt Romney has learned a great deal from Donald Trump and his boisterous style Romney must employ his new found toughness to take on Big Media. Romney has to have his campaign confront and call out Big Media. A SuperPac dedicated to this task should be established and funded sufficient to the task.
Mitt Romney better prepare to tackle Big Media or he will be food for WORMs.
