Update: Until Mitt Romney realizes his enemy is Big Media first and foremost he will remain on defense. JournoListers killed the Jeremiah Wright story and stated that the reason to do so was to protect their stooge Barack Obama. Mitt Romney has no JournoListers protecting him. That’s why stories like this happen and have to be explained.
Explanations won’t suffice as long as feral Big Media remains at large. The story from Romney: Obama’s 47% of the electorate is dependent on government will be exploited to block news about the September 11, 2012 attack Obama could have prevented. The professor has it right:
“There is no doubt that this was an Obama campaign operation, and likely we will see more such tapes dribbled out a week at a time. The team which obtained sealed divorce records of rivals certainly can plant donors at private fundraisers.
Don’t fall for pronouncements that Romney’s campaign now is over. Such pronouncements now come weekly by a media seeking a self-fulfilling prophecy. Whether it was the insane overreaction to Romney’s comments on Libya or the declaration that the polling showed Romney had lost, every week there will be a new meme circulated.
Stay focused, and motivated.”
It took Big Media at least a year to confirm what we reported years earlier – that it was Obama that planted the Edwards $400 haircut story. That was nothing compared to what Big Media intends to do to Mitt Romney. To know what is happening today, don’t read the day’s headlines – read The Innocent Charles Manson.
See, what we’re suggesting is very easy to do and does not need embellishment. We’re not pushing a complicated recipe, just something a short order cook can prepare. For example, short order cook Michelle Bachmann accomplishes at least half of what we suggested in one easy soundbite:
“And President Obama needs to get his priorities straight. What he needs to do is cancel his planned interview with David Letterman, cancel his meeting with Beyonce, cancel his meeting with Jay Z, and instead agree to meet with the Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu, because you see, America and Israel have a commonality of interests,” Bachmann said.”
Add another component of our suggestion – the threat of continuous pummeling of Obama until he accedes to such a meeting — and 100% of what we suggested is done. Of course we said this should happen on the afternoon of September 11, 2012 so it is already a bit late.
We sometimes think the Romney campaign should shut down, fire everybody, and just read what we write and do what we say they should do. Mind, we’ve written effusively at times about the Romney campaign and we’ve even had nice things to say about Mitt Romney himself. But pretty much as soon as we write something nice about Romney or his campaign we almost immediately have to refudiate ourselves. They’re just so stupid.
Barack Obama is the Romney campaign opponent and there is even a question as to who is winning? How stupid can the Romney campaign be? The Romney campaign, as even its best friends agree, is a stupid campaign. Stupid is as stupid does.
But be of good cheer Romney supporters. If the Romney campaign is stupid, which it is, is there anything dumber, stupider, more contemptible than a true believing Obama supporter? The answer is “No”. True believer Obama supporters are by definition “imbeciles“.
We know we are being generous when we diagnose true believing Obama supporters as imbeciles, there is a lower level measurement of intelligence after all, but these imbeciles, we hear, are usually toilet trained so we give them props. But still they are truly stupid and therefore difficult to argue with.
Don’t confuse them with facts. They loves themselves the Obama so much they cannot accept anything but that their “man” is in for a sure fire winning. Try telling these imbeciles that there are polls which have had Mitt Romney leading Obama, then losing to Obama (in the wake of the conventions), and now Romney leading Obama yet again. They are oblivious. These latter day Pauline Kaels reject reality for their own dirty bubbles.
“The clearest example of the bizarrely naive quality of hermetic liberal provincialism was attributed to the New Yorker film critic Pauline Kael almost 40 years ago, and has been discussed in right-wing circles ever since. It went something like this: “I can’t believe Nixon won. I don’t know anyone who voted for him.” Several years ago, I went on an admittedly desultory search for the original quote and was unable to locate it.
On Friday, on the New Yorker’s website, the magazine’s film editor Richard Brody offers what may be the first accurate version of the quote I’ve ever seen (I’m assuming it’s accurate because it comes from the New Yorker itself): “Pauline Kael famously commented, after the 1972 Presidential election, ‘I live in a rather special world. I only know one person who voted for Nixon. Where they are I don’t know. They’re outside my ken. But sometimes when I’m in a theater I can feel them.’”
Obviously, the paraphrase is far juicier than the original, but actually, if you think about it, the version quoted by Brody is even worse, as it indicates that Kael was actually acknowledging her provincialism (“I live in a rather special world”) and from its perch expressing her distaste for the unwashed masses with whom she sometimes had to share a movie theater. What this indicates is that, even then, liberal provincialism was as proud of its provincialism as any Babbitt.”
That was 40 years ago and what once could be classified as “liberal provincialism” has to be reclassified as imbecility. Pauline Kael did not have Reagan’s campaign to reference or any of the past 40 years to inform her. But these Obama imbeciles have the past 40 years and yet they bitterly cling to their Kaelian notions.
We can understand mocking Romney. We have mocked him. But we also understand what Romney is up to. We don’t like the gamble, we think there was an easier path, but we know what Romney is up to:
“The Barack Obama campaign has run on the model of 2004. In that year an unpopular incumbent ran a base election and squeaked through to a victory.
The Mitt Romney campaign sees 1980 as their model year. In that year a Republican challenger to an incumbent president trailed or was close to the president for many months until at the very last moment, at a debate, the challenger proved his worthiness and broke the race wide open to a comfortable victory.
If you look at these two models after the events of September 11, 2012, the 1980 model appears to be the one most congruent with the current political situation. That is what scares the Obama Hopium Guzzling Big Media and other Obama acolytes. That is why the response to Mitt Romney’s mild critique of Barack Obama has been so brutal.”
Mitt Romney right now is not really campaigning. Paul Ryan is campaigning, but Mitt Romney is fundraising. Mitt Romney is hoarding cash, like Alberich in Nibelheim.
Mitt Romney is raising cash so that after the debate on October 3 he can raise hell for Obama. Somehow the Obama imbeciles don’t see that.
Mitt Romney has a very simple strategy. First raise lots of money, much more money than Barack Obama (all the while knowing that the pro Romney SuperPacs will spend hundreds of millions of dollars more than the Obama SuperPacs). While raising the cash just stay within winning distance of Barack Obama in the polls or if possible ahead.
Second, wait until all Americans are paying attention to politics and the presidential race, a period signaled by the debates. While waiting for the debates, heighten the probability of good debate performances by preparing for the debates. Romney has already had several debate preparation sessions and he comes fresh from a full primary campaign season of debates with people such as Newt Gingrich.
Finally, unfurl the flag, let the air war which many of us thought would commence soon after the end of the Obama convention) finally begin. To employ World War II terminology (apologies in advance especially since it is the beginning of the Jewish High Holy days), the sitzkreig becomes the blitzkrieg.
Barack Obama’s strategy is essentially to squeak out a win even if that makes governing an impossibility. Obama’s hopes are based on micro-targeting and data mining. The very expensive data based campaign was a big waste of money until Romney made a very stupid decision which made rational the Obama data mining efforts:
“If you realize that statement #1 is truer than ever and you also believe that this election will be an election of smear and fear, distract and distort, divide and conquer, corruption and complicity, consider yourself smart – you’ve been paying attention.”
Barack Obama will utilize all that data mining to slice and dice the electorate and smear and slime Mitt Romney. It’s ugly and leads to future impotence in governing. But don’t tell that to the Obama imbeciles, they’re drinking a potent new formula of Hopium.
That Hopium embalms the latter day Pauline Kael’s with new resolve to ignore reality. Obama’s failed strategy to use foreign policy to beat Romney is in flames, but the Hopium Guzzlers do not care.
The Hopium Guzzlers, like Kael generations ago, know what they know. They hate polls but love the polls they love. We’ve issued many warnings about when and how to read polls. Lately polls were raised to icon status by the Hopium Guzzlers. But not all polls:
“Voters are fairly evenly divided as to which candidate they trust more to handle events in the Middle East: 48% say Obama, 45% Romney. Unaffiliated voters have a slight preference for Romney. By an overwhelming 72% to 15% margin, voters believe it is more important to guarantee freedom of speech rather than making sure nothing is done to offend other nations and cultures. Half (51%) think it’s likely the government of Libya was involved in the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens
and other Americans.
As of this morning, only seven percent (7%) of voters rate national security issues as the most important in Election 2012. [snip]
Most voters continue to favor repeal of the president’s health care law. [snip]
Results such as these should give no side encouragement to loudly proclaim they know what will happen on election day 2012. Four years ago today, the financial crisis hit and John McCain’s large post convention bounce ended. The Obama Hopium Guzzlers continue to believe it was their brilliant campaign and their Mess-iah that won that campaign – but the rational know it was the financial collapse and exhaustion with George W. Bush that wrote the election day results.
Mitt Romney still understands that “It’s the economy, stupid.” That’s why new Romney ads focus on economy, deficit:
The Obama policy can be summarized as Debt And Deficits At Home To Buy Catastrophe Abroad. Don’t tell the Hopium Guzzlers that. They’re planning the Obama second inaugural. How stupid is that?
