Mitt Romney has had a lot of bad weeks recently. There’s no use denying that. His campaign has pretty much sucked too. There’s no sense denying that.
Mitt Romney can easily fix what ails his campaign machinery however. All Mitt has to do is give John Sununu an electric cattle prod and full charge of getting the campaign in gear, running smoothly. Problem solved.
Yeah, Mitt Romney has had a lot of bad weeks lately, and by all rights Mitt Romney should be toast but somehow Mitt keeps hanging on. Poor Mitt, other than his wife few love him, but he keeps on hanging on.
Consider: after weeks, if not months, in which the Obama campaign has been almost completely successful with their tactics of distraction, distraction, smear, distraction, distraction, lies, lies, lies, lies, distraction, smear – Mitt Romney is either tied with Obama or a few, often only 1, points behind Obama in polls which skew at least 5 points in Obama’s favor.
Consider: Big Media continues to ignore or downplay news items hurtful to Obama while playing up stories that hurt Romney’s campaign but somehow the public is closely divided between Obama and Romney.
Bottom Line: Mitt Romney’s enemy is Big Media which protects Barack Obama from his many failures. Barack Obama’s enemy is reality and reality’s intrusion into the everyday life of Americans.
Donald Trump in an un-aired segment for the Republican convention provides an all too brief summary of reality and how it is the enemy of Obama:
Donald Trump’s video is only an appetizer serving of Obama’s failures. A heftier meal of Obama failures was delivered today from of all places Latino powerhouse Univision:
“CORAL GABLES, Fla. – President Barack Obama on Thursday faced some of the toughest questioning of his reelection campaign to date, pressed repeatedly on his failure to achieve comprehensive immigration reform and other unmet promises from his 2008 run.
The Univision presidential forum at the University of Miami here kicked off with grilling on another topic which brought mounting criticism from Republicans Thursday: The government’s decision to label as a terrorist attack the violence at the consulate in Benghazi which killed American Christopher Stevens.”
It happened in must win for Romney key state of Florida. Latino powerhouse Univision hit Barack Obama right in his Benghazis:
“Asked why the United States was not better prepared, with better security at its embassies on the Sept. 11 anniversary, Obama responded by repeating the admonitions about not tolerating violence, but continued to discuss the incident in the context of the controversial video depicting scenes from the life of Mohammed.”
Univision noted the lack of celestial choirs and Obama crumpled like the cheap empty suit he is:
“But it was his elaboration of his usual lament about failing to change the tone of Washington that immediately drew a sharp response from Republican nominee Mitt Romney.
“I think that I’ve learned some lessons over the last four years and the most important lesson I’ve learned is that you can’t change Washington from the inside,” Obama said, appearing to admit his inability to fully deliver on one of the driving themes of his 2008 campaign. “You can only change it from the outside. That’s how I got elected. And that’s how the big accomplishments like health care got done.”
Speaking in Sarasota Thursday, Romney — who made his own Univision forum appearance Wednesday — said this amounted to Obama throwing in “the white flag of surrender.”
“I can change Washington,” Romney promised. “I will change Washington. I will get the job done from the inside.”
What a buffoon Barack Obama is! No doubt, the Obama imbeciles will say something stupid in defense of Barack Obama’s ‘change is hard and it’s too hard for me to get done’ whine.
The Obama imbeciles will no doubt begin to suspect that Latino powerhouse Univision is populated with “RACISTS!” for asking Obama why Obama did not do what Obama said he would do:
“However, much of the time in front of the Spanish-language audience here was spent on Obama’s failure to get comprehensive immigration reform — something that Obama attributed to focusing instead on the economy and blaming Republicans in Congress.
But to host Jorge Ramos, that answer was not good enough.
“You promised that, and a promise is a promise,” Ramos told Obama. “And with all due respect, you didn’t keep that promise.”
Obama responded with an explanation for the Spanish-language audience about the separation of powers in the federal government.”
No matter how incompetent the Mitt Romney campaign is and how lackluster Mitt Roimney has performed, this Obama performance elevates Romney to super-genius. What a joke Barack Obama is! How loathsome the Chicago clown! Separation of powers as an excuse when Obama had full control of the congress and the executive branches of government.
“A promise is a promise” says Jorge. Obama responds with ‘it’s not a promise if you don’t promise to do the promise and promise to promise and accomplish the promise.’ We kid you not:
“So I am happy to take responsibility for the fact that we didn’t get it done, but I did not make a promise that we would get everything done, 100 percent when I was elected as president.”
Oh really Barack? You didn’t promise to keep your promise in the first year?
For Obama, a promise is not a promise. Hey we warned you Jorge! Remember August 11, 2010, Jorge? We wrote an article called “Hey Jorge, Obama Cannot Be Trusted“. That article featured our mantra Jorge:
Obama simply cannot be trusted. Obama cannot be trusted on any issue. Obama cannot be trusted by his friends. Obama cannot be trusted by his enemies. Obama cannot be trusted.
Jorge Ramos, as we wrote in that August 2010 article is the “Walter Cronkite of Spanish-language media“.
This is how we ended our epistle to Jorge Ramos years ago:
“Jorge baby, Obama can’t be trusted. Get that simple fact into your head. Get that simple fact to your viewers. Whatever side of the illegal immigration issue you are on, Obama can’t be trusted. Whatever side of the legal immigration issue you are on, Obama can’t be trusted. Whatever side of whatever issue you are on, Obama can’t be trusted.
Get it now Jorge?”
Mitt Romney on his weakest day of existence is better than Barack Obama at his “best” – whatever that horror is.
When Obama whined and lied today to Jorge Ramos about not being able to bring change to Washington from the inside the “Yes we Can” crowd took a double guzzle of Hopium to erase that confession from what passes for their minds. The response from Romney to Obama: If you want to change D.C. from the “outside,” we’ll give you the chance in November:
Smart Republicans/conservatives immediately did what he have for so long advised – use the secret weapon called Hillary Clinton:
“His biggest lesson, meanwhile, is that “you can’t change Washington from the inside.” Wait a second. In the 2008 primaries, his whole argument with Hillary Clinton was over this exact question. She believed that you can change Washington from the inside and Barack Obama said you couldn’t.
For example, in a Nevada debate, Obama said he wasn’t a very organized person. But that didn’t matter because it was the president’s job to inspire people. The presidency “involves having a vision for where the country needs to go . . . and then being able to mobilize and inspire the American people to get behind that agenda for change.”
Hillary rejected this formulation. She said being president is about being the “chief executive officer” who must be “able to manage and run the bureaucracy.”
Hillary Clinton was right and Barack Obama is a lying treacherous boob. Obama is an abject failure and a liar.
For a long time we have mocked Obama supporters who excuse Obama’s failures with this lamest of lame excuses: “He’s doing the best he can.” Our response is always “Yes, that is exactly the problem.”
