Rosen V. Romney is an orchestrated DISTRACTION
Bill OReilly & Charles Krauthammer were discussing the Buffet Rule which most everyone knows is the premise for Obamas tax raising campaign on the wealthy. Republicans know that he is using this admittedly useless endeavor to foment class warfare.
Krauthammer did a capable job explaining how 250 years worth of this additional tax would only amount to about one year of the current deficit spending. He explained that this is pure demagoguery (as we all know) and he added that demagoguery works.
I will add that the reason why these trivial distractions work is because most people do not pay attention long enough to make a logical deduction. They take the emotionally charged summary that is handed to them and they never learn important things like the actual SIZE of the deficit and national debt. They never care to learn HOW MUCH REVENUE the policy will generate.
That is also the same reason why the GOP establishment is routinely effective in bamboozling the conservative majority of the party and consistently stealing the nomination despite being a 35% minority.
The case in point is this claptrap about some women named Rosen claiming that Ann Romney never worked a day in her life. It is revealing of their view of stay at home moms but this is nothing new. The left have revealed this a thousand times over. I am seeing this story being perpetuated at virtually every conservative website on the Internet and as you can see I dont even know the womens first name because I refuse to get caught up in this. I know what I know based upon the headlines that flood my inbox.
This story is benign compared to the affronts of this administration and I refuse to let it distract me from the duty of pointing to the political suicide being foisted upon us. The timing of this betrays a tactic to create an emotional narrative for everyone to coalesce around Mitt Romney as though he is already our nominee. It detracts from the fact that there is a critical primary campaign taking place and that half of the nation has not yet had their say in this election. Fox News once again is shaping the conversation and is manipulating the nation to deprive the remaining states of their vote.
For the Republicans who are true conservatives tempted to once again fall in line because you dont have the energy to fight or look at the consequences - let me tell you EXACTLY what this is. This is a transparent DECOY to get the fatigued (as they describe you) to feel good about yourselves as though you fought a noble fight but just couldnt quite make it. It is a decoy to lull you to sleep so that despite there being a PRIMARY going on, you can give into the brain snatchers and join them in their milquetoast state of intellect.
At this exact juncture in which I write this, Sean Hannity is leading with this Rosen v Romney tripe. It is really sad that in this time where our Republic is falling apart more by the day, these drones are pushing a candidate who NEEDS a decoy to keep people from focusing on his record.
Im now even seeing evidence of the sell-out on some of the Christian websites. Everybody gather around on this key issue about Romneys wife! Lets use this as ether to numb the internal pain of knowing that we are too cowardice, too damned lazy to fight for a REAL conservative candidate who has a chance to defeat the liberal Obama. Let us draw you in and unite the party under this colossal issue. GO ANN ROMNEY! The more we talk about you, the less we have to worry about your impetuous husband gift wrapping the Democrats with his next verbal gaffe.
This Rosen v Romney distraction will be forgotten long before the general election as Obama has already distanced himself from her. Because it is so formulaic, it is not far-fetched to reason that the Obama administration threw Romney this bone as it does no harm to him and they could easily have intended it for the purpose it seems to serve, a distraction to buttress the glass jaw candidate Axelrod has been on record before the primary as coveting as Obamas opposition.
My purpose here is to wake up those who are being seduced. Let us not join the trite. The temptation is to relent to the desires of the moderate herd just as we did with their come-back kid John McCain. Every election we are told by the minority that THIS TIME if we do not plug our noses and vote for the candidate with whom they bamboozled us, we will be finished. The reason WHY we will be finished is because we listen to these traitors.
Conservatives stand strong. Do not believe these propagandists at Fox and organizations who perpetuate this prosaic nonsense. You have nothing to lose by voting for Newt in the primary and taking this to a brokered convention. In fact, this is our last chance to win. We will vote the GOP down ticket. We will work harder than ever to strengthen our state legislatures. But under no circumstance will we enable these manipulators and validate their destructive methods of lies and deceit by playing their game.
If they nominate Romney they will whine and throw their fits when they see we are finished being their personal prison punks. They will try to blame us- for Obamas re-election. But the fact is that a compulsive lair whose distinctions from Obama are trivial at best cannot beat Obama with or without us.
THIS IS NO TIME TO
Wow, so many people reading much more into this Rosen thing than it’s worth. For crying out loud, this Rosen woman just slipped up and exposed how the libs really think. Now, there’s some grand conspiracy. Sheesh. Get real people.
There’s nothing GRAND about it. It is trite as all hell. Since you down play it, than why don’t you moan against the idiots who keep reporting it every 15 minutes instead of the people who are sick of hearing about it???
Other than the Newt part, I agree completely that the whole “war on women” thing is a set up and a distraction.
Usually it’s the left that does this but in this case, it’s coming from a nervous Romney and Co.
They want to take attention away from Mittens wierd religious views and concentrate on bringing up a has been issue that borders on the ridiculous.
Trying to make “stay at home moms” seem like victims and having to explain and justify their decisions is no different than the left making Trayvon Martin and racial prejudice an issue.
Distractions all. The problem is that a majority of the electorate may fall for this nonsense. Some supposed Conservatives already have.
You need to cut down on the caffeine. This is not some rope a dope by the Rats or even some super secret plan to distract. This bull dyke slipped up and actually said what she thinks about traditional values. This is a massive failure by the Regime. They are in panic meetings as we speak, trying to figure out how to get the genie back in the bottle. It ain’t happening.
Take a victory for what it is and move on. Obsessing over some weird conspiracy will get us nowhere.
On to the next battle.
total distraction that gives unwarranted attention to Mittens.
It certainly seems like it is. If Newt was there man, we’de be having a much more cogent conversation.
I mean If Newt was THEIR man, we would be having a much more cogent conversation.
Anyway, if Romney is the nominated imposter, this is the kind of deep debate we have to look forward to.
Errr....My post wasn't anything to do with you. I just have to laugh at all the peeps that think this was somehow planned ahead of time.
People give Dems too much credit. The woman is a nasty lesbo who shot off her big mouth.
I don’t know or care what this stupid “rosen” thing even is.
