Before Mitt Romney’s eight-vote victory over Rick Santorum in the Iowa Caucus was final in the early hours of the morning the Obama campaign began their absurd line of attack that will be their mantra for the 2012 campaign: It’s Tea Party trashing and hysterical warnings against “dangerous extremists” no matter who the nominee is.
If there’s anyone out there who cannot be linked with the Tea Party or called an extremist, it’s Mitt Romney. But that won’t stop the Obama Attack Machine from just making it up anyway.
In keeping with its previous line of attack, the Obama campaign’s manager Jim Messina said in a statement that the “extremist Tea Party agenda won a clear victory” shortly after the results were announced early Wednesday.
“No matter who the Republicans nominate, we’ll be running against someone who has embraced that agenda in order to win — vowing to let Wall Street write its own rules, end Medicare as we know it, roll back gay rights, leave the troops in Iraq indefinitely, restrict a woman’s right to choose, and gut Social Security to pay for more tax cuts for millionaires and corporations.”
Um, didn’t we just leave Iraq? And who was it who received more money from Wall Street than anyone in 2008? Oh yes, Barack Obama. And, let’s just suppose now that Romney is the nominee: When has he stated he’ll end Medicare, gut Social Security and “roll back” gay rights?
He never has.
Team Obama has nothing to run on so it’ll be scorched earth, the most dishonest campaign you’ll ever witness, and don’t expect the media to point out their lies.
Messina also warned of “unprecedented” spending by outside groups on campaign ads and urged the president’s supporters to step up donations and on-the-ground organizing ahead of the November vote.
“Unprecedented” spending. That’s rich coming from this crew that has promised to wage a billion-dollar campaign, with an unlimited amount of free ad time courtesy of the media.
It’s going to be a long nine months.
Is it any wonder why the Obama campaign will do anything to avoid talking about his disastrous record?
according to the US Treasury, America has closed the books on 2011 with debt at an all time record $15,222,940,045,451.09. And, as was observed here first in all of the press, US debt to GDP is now officially over 100%, or 100.3% to be specific, a fact which the US government decided to delay exposing until the very end of the calendar year. We wonder, rhetorically, just how prominent of a talking point this historic event will be in any upcoming GOP primary debates.
But hey, if anyone dares to mention this, that makes them a dangerous extremist.
