Mitt Takes the Gloves Off – Scores a Bullseye
Romney went on to say,””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,” Romney said.
“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 reelection 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.” Romney needs Ohio to win as no candidate has ever won the presidency without taking Ohio.
So far Obama’s campaign has been nothing but attacks and falling to new lows every day. He has no real accomplishments to run on so all h e can do is attack and that turns voters off. What’s he going to run on? The economy and unemployment? He can’t do that with unemployment at 8.2% for 43 straight months after Bush left it at 4.5%. The national debt? He can’t run on that after adding almost six trillion in three years after chastising Bush for adding four trillion in 8 years. Gas prices? He can’t run on that after Bush left us with gas at $1.69 a gallon and now gas prices have soared to almost $4 a gallon again especially when Obama gave Brazil building permits to build three pumping stations off their coast so we’ll buy oil from them. Healthcare? ( which I wish government would keep their hands off of) The majority of people said they are against his government mandate, especially one that has your doctor having to consult with a government bureaucrat to decide who gets what much needed procedure and what medication or not depending on your age.
Obama has another thing going against him, his own VP Joe (foot in mouth ) Biden. Yesterday in Virginia Biden was campaigning saying Team Romney was going to” unchain Wall Street and put ya’ll back in chains.” It was Biden who told a paraplegic soldier to stand up and take a bow at a rally once and other famous gaffes that the media likes to cover up. It was Biden who said,” you can’t walk into a Dunkin’ Doughnuts or 7 Elevem without hearing an Indian accent.” Look what they did to Sarah Palin,slicing and dicing her coverage in tv interviews making her look like a complete dunce when she wasn’t. Don’t forget it was Obama who said he’s been t o all 57 states too.
Even former Mayor Rudy Guiliani on Larry Kudlow’s show when asked about Biden’s ‘put you back in chains’ statement that has racial overtones Guiliani replied that he didn’t think Biden has the mental capacity to be president saying,” Well, I think if it came from somebody serious maybe we’d get all excited about it. But the — I think the vice president of the United States has become a laugh line on late night television. I mean, he — I’ve never seen a vice president that has made as many mistakes, said as many stupid things. 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. I mean, this guy just isn’t bright. He’s never been bright. He isn’t bright. And people think, ‘Well, he just talks a little too much.’ Actually he’s just not very smart.”
Yes sir, the VP debates are going to be fun to watch. I predict a melt down by Biden especially when going against a much younger, more articulate and energetic person like Paul Ryan who has brains, brawn and good looks to match.
