Obama campaign confident they will win

Yesterday, the Obama campaign officially ended with what the President noted was his last campaign speech .. ever. The incumbent’s campaign is out in-force telling anyone that will listen that they are confident that they have the votes to win the election.

This morning, Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter said that Romney’s last-minute stops in Pennsylvania today were signs that the Romney-Ryan ticket is “grasping” if they think Pennsylvania is a tight race. That’s a sentiment continued from a twitter battle between the two campaigns last night.

Obama offered Romney his congratulations for having run a “spirited campaign” and acknowledging that Romney supporters are just as enthusiastic as the President’s followers, but that he felt “optimistic” about the days outcome.

David Axelrod has been saying that the election was going to be a solid blowout with Obama being re-elected handily. He’s gone so far as to bet the mustache that he’s sported for more than 40 years. On Monday, Axelrod noted that out of their set of plans to get to 270 electoral votes,  “all those pathways are intact” and that he was confident that Obama would win both the popular vote and the electoral college.

Even Democratic Party Communications director Brad Woodhouse got into the follicle folly by betting his coiffure on the outcome of today’s vote:

The campaign and party seem focused on early voting results and what may well be a flawed turnout prediction model. If the Democrats D+7 model holds, the President will certainly be giving a victory speech at the McCormick Place convention late tonight or early Wednesday morning. If the Republican-leaning independent vote tilts the model to Gallup’s observation, those at the McCormick center will instead be treated with a concession event.

White House Tells Lies (Repeatedly) To Win

The White House re-election campaign has denied any knowledge of an abhorrent, misleading Super PAC ad that wrongly blames GOP challenger Mitt Romney for the death of a steelworker’s wife from cancer.

Campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki responded by saying: “We have nothing, no involvement, with any ads that are done by Priorities USA.  We don’t have any knowledge of the story of the family.”  Deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter stated: “I don’t know the facts about when Mr. Soptic’s wife got sick, or the facts about his health insurance.”

The problem for the Oval Office and its hope for re-election is; Soptic told the story on May 14, 2012, in a conference call hosted by the Obama campaign.

This is from someone who condemned PAC attack ads running in favor of John Edwards during the 2008 campaign.  This is from a candidate who attacks Super PACs that are on Romney’s side, but never utters one peep about the PACs that are aligned with him, launching slanderous attacks against Romney on his behalf.

Apparently for “progressives”, civility remains a one way street.

Evidence shows how the White House’s assertion that political appointees were not involved in Energy Department loan decisions is a flat out lie.

Documents and sources knowledgeable of the situation show that disagreement between administration officials over approval of a $1.4 billion loan to another project was resolved by then-White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley.

Last summer the Oval Office occupier was briefed personally about a federal loan program aimed at helping clean-energy companies.   The briefing took place a mere two months before failure of the solar company Solyndra.  Solyndra was trumpeted by the White House as the poster child for solar power success in America.

It is easy to understand why Romney and his supporters justifiably lament the cheap, two-bit, Chicago thug style, dirty, lying, lowlife, bottoms scraping, scumbag, “progressive”, Alinsky tactics being used daily by the current White House occupant’s re-election campaign.  But to remain stuck in lament or defense mode plays right into their hands.

The best option is to stick to the truth and use the abundant available evidence to successfully portray the current administration and its “progressive” political allies for what they are.  So incredibly inept at governing that their own failed leadership and flagrant incompetence has forced them to lie, cheat and resort to character assassination in order to misrepresent themselves and their opponent.

Then paint the portrait of a viable alternative to failure: A proven leader who has achieved the American dream through pursuit of happiness.

Follow that with a series of questions.

Who would you rather have leading the United States of America; someone so inexperienced, inept and incompetent that Americans are resorting to Welfare, Disability and Food Stamps for survival?  Someone who must resort to blatantly dishonest tactics in an attempt to salvage their own failed, sagging political career?

Or would you rather have America led by a competent, successful and experienced businessman of good moral character who has plans to revitalize the American private sector economy and put Americans back to work?

America deserves better than having an inexperienced, incompetent, inept liar as President of the United States.

You deserve better.
