Well there's one thing certain about all this tomfoolery over Romney's record at Bain Capital, it's a certain sign that Obama and his little cabal of elitist Marxists who comprise his campaign are desperate.
What's most abhorrent about these attacks, what's most sinister about their implications is that those who are making the allegations know them to be false false. None of them actually believe that Mitt Romney has done anything illegal or unethical . . . they simply wish to destroy the man. They are enjoying Romney's discomfiture and anger at being lied about. They think it's cute to engage in this sort of cynical campaign of lies and misrepresentations, because to them the end justifies the means.
You can see the amusement in the MSM talking heads' eyes and hear it in their voices. Occasionally, as in this morning on MSNBC's Morning Joe, you can even see them snickering about the difficulty Romney is having in refuting these FALSE charges from the Obama camp. They even publicly acknowledged that there was no substance to the Obama campaign's assertions, but it made no difference to them. They still continue to push the story--more evidence of liberal desperation
President Obama and the Democrat Party leadership have deliberately chosen to set out on a campaign of lies and distortions intended to smear Mr. Romney in the eyes of the voters. They couldn't care less it the allegations are false--in fact it amuses them no end that their little conceit has worked so well.
Why the campaign of obvious lies and smear tactics? Simple. President Obama can't afford to talk about his record as President, because it is abysmal. He has to keep up these irrelevant attacks to distract from the fact that his entire administration has been a disaster start to finish. He can't ask the American people "Are you better off today than you were 4 years ago," he can't ask the American voters if they want another 4 years of what he's done so far, he can't point to any accomplishment of his administration, because--to use one of Obama's pet phrases in describing the Constitution--IT'S A RECORD OF NEGATIVE ACCOMPLISHMENTS.
What is the President's record?
- More people on welfare than ever before.
- The largest number of food stamp recipients ever.
- Permanent 8%+ unemployment.
- Underemployment stuck at a devastating and tragic 16%+
- 500,000 fewer jobs available than when Obama took office even as an additional 4 million joined the work force.
- The unemployed have been out of work so long they have began to apply for long term disability--more applied for SSI disability than found work in June.
- More debt added in 3 1/2 years than Bush added in 8 years--with NO POSITIVE EFFECT on employment, industry, or housing, race relations are worse today than they have been in 30 years
- Federal takeover of the healthcare industry that is driving businesses out of carrying coverage and costing people who have been covered their entire working careers that coverage.
I guess Obama cares more about them than he does about the American people. Obama couldn't have done more damage to this nation if he were trying--and it would not be surprising to learn that he was.
There is nothing more contemptible than a candidate or any person who seeks to capitalize on the misery of another when the source of that misery is the lies being promulgated by that candidate. The more Obama and his Democrat fellows pursue this tactic, the more contemptible and evil they become.
I don't love Romney as a candidate--probably never will--he's not conservative enough or principled enough on the issues. I also continue to question his willingness to engage the President in a tough, fact-based attack. I fear he is too consumed with the "if I attack the President they will call me a racist" mentality to do so.
For all that, I am one of those who will choose the lesser of two evils (though classifying Romney in the same general category of evils is offensive to my sense of proportion--Romney at his worst doesn't approach the potential for destruction that Obama represents), so I pray with all my gun and Bible clinging heart that Romney becomes more and more aggressive as his sense of outrage at these unfair and factually dishonest attacks grows.
Long Live Our American Republic!!!!
