Romney is NUTS To Keep Dancing to Obama's Bain Rap
Reaganite Republican ^ | June 14, 2012 | Reaganite Republican

Posted on 07/14/2012 6:20:23 AM PDT by Reaganite Republican

GO ON THE OFFENSIVE against 
this shameless fraud, DAMMIT!


Let me make it real simple for you, Team Mittens:

1) Refuse to discuss any more issues related to Bain Capital.

2) Point-out publicly how the WaPo found Obama Bain claims dishonest, then review list of all Dems who find these attacks appalling.

3) Instigate a relentless new narrative re. how Obama is the most secretive (and hypocrital) president in US history... and demand immediate release of the below records:



Do it now, Mitt... quit playing their diversionary games
or you're going to blow it

Something that’s on Mitt’s website “should be made public” ?? Don’t grok this.

Mitt intends to blow it. Just like McCain.

Charlie Sheen could win an election against the Maadi.

Mitt has evidently been paid off. Thats why the media nominated him.

I think the Romney campaign decided to address the issue now than trying to ignore it and haunt him in September.

There is ZERO reason to let Obama define the conversation- WHY?

If Newt was the nominee he’d be kicking Obama’s butt up and down the field!

THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT CAMP UBAMA WANTS!!! These rat bass turds are professionals. They have ONE WORD right now to ATTACK ROMNEY - BAIN! Team Ubama is all on the same page and they are relentless and the media is on their side! Whatever Romney does he should not mention the birth record felonies. The media will then revert to their other word BIRTHER. He needs to focus on Ubama's Social Security FRAUD OR HIS HIDDEN COLLEGE Records. WHATEVER Romney does he has to FOCUS on ONE and ONLY ONE ITEM and focus like a burning laser!

The RATS are all on the same page and that is how they gain ground in the opinion polls.

My preference would be to focus on his failing E VERIFY! This would tie in to the illegal immigration issue and kill two birds with one stone. UBAMA - CONNECTICUT SSN - FAILS E-VERIFY - WHY?

You are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO right.

Mr. RomneyCARE is unable to take the attack to Obama.
To Mr. RomneyCARE, Obama is "nice man" since
Obama is not an EVIL CONSERVATIVE.

Remember this?


Mitt Romney Sends Leftover Pizza to Obama Chicago HQ
After spending the day in Chicago fundraising, Mitt Romney
sat down with small business owners at Gino's East,
a pizza joint famous for their deep-dish pizza.
In fact, Romney himself tweeted a photo of a
delivery boy heading out with the loot, writing,
"Great deep dish at @ginoseast.
Sending the extra slices to @barackobama and his Chicago HQ team."
since

In 2008, McCain cowered in fear that Team Obama would hurl some negative label, such as racism, that would stick to him.

Romney is allowing himself to be distracted by shiny objects -- things Team Obama throw out at Romney to distract, detract, and deter away from real issues.

When Romney responds with 'they are being mean, they are being unfair' he/his team sound whiney and childish.

Man up! Of course they are being mean and unfair! Deal with it. Either run and hide, like McCain did; or stand up to them, call them out, and respond in a manner that makes the media and Dems cringe and regret that they brought up the issue.

This isn't Patty Cake. This is politics. It is dirty. Attack Obama like you attacked your opposition in the primaries. Anything less and you will limp off the stage after your concession speech, like McCain did in 2008.

If-fery. If if if.

If Newt had won more 2 primaries...

He couldn't even win against Romney. He lost most of his southern strategy states to Santorum. What makes you think he would have done any better against Obama?

He lost in the primaries. All the iffery isn't going help the GOP in November.

LIBERALISM is the greatest outsourcer of them all, q.v.:

1) Regulations by unelected bureacrats (who survive elections) & tort-happy lawyers (and their legislative comperes) have driven companies to freer climes.

2) Taxation has driven wealth to safer and more diverse havens. It’s good sense not to put all your eggs in one basket.

3) Unionism proscribes what work one can & cannot do, and encourages sloth and shoddiness. A) It creates another union job for someone to clean up the mess or fix the problem, ad infinitum and B)It puts the shysters in charge (see item #1)

4) Obama wants to create wealth from the “bottom up” and not from the “top down”. But what, pray tell, are food stamps spent on? Locally grown produce or packaged goods? And how much of the “stuff” we buy is made in China, Mexico, etc.?

Last weekend, it was the ‘secrecy’ and ‘offshore bank accounts’.

What does he have to hide? Why does he need offshore bank accounts? Why is he so secretive?

So what that most of Dems on Capitol Hill probably have offshore bank accounts. We know Rangel did. We have news reports that Wasserman-Schultz does.

It isn’t the factual evidence; it is the seriousness of the charge. Romney is secretive!

==

Team Romney need to find ways around these verbal traps. They will be trying to spring them until the election. And many times they will work. Recall ‘macaca’?

OK, Rant back on. Forgot two:

5) Welfare state raises the “break-even” point between work/idleness (or eat/starve). This opens the labor markets overseas for those more willing to work harder for less pay. Obviously we don’t have to go back to sweatshoppery (ahem, Apple).

6) Illegal immigration drives up public costs, floods the labor market, and swells the underground economy (not subject to much of the above, as well as other criminal codes)

Well I have thought it was a good response. On twitter, I joined the hilarious attackwatch Obama account which was some of the best humor on the internet. Well the Obama campaign renamed this and now I'm following some TruthTeam account. If you monitor the drivel here, you can understand Romney's strategy.

I think Romney is doing quite well thank you. Deciding how to handle this one is a bit tricky, as there is some evidence that the Bain attacks have hit home with some.

To make a not- too-fine point, RR, I submit you're first suggestion is to ignore it, but in number two you suggest he answer it. Can't do both.

With the mainstream supporting Romney, exposing Obie, I'd suggest they've handled it right. It required very little urging to get mainstream to cry liar, which tells me they're not completely in the bag for the criminal in the white hut. It's becoming apparent to all that Obie and his inmates have zero regard for truth and that's getting harder and harder to take.

A 57 ....errr....47 state sweep.

Ummm...say, does anyone remember that we are 15,000,000,000,000 IN THE HOLE? That people have been unemployed FOR YEARS?????? That this country is a BAD PLACE TO DO BUSINESS??? That it’s not even a safe place to live anymore???

Well, it’s working, then.

Mitt NEEDS TO GO ON THE OFFENSIVE. Never mind that Romney is wealthy. HE HELPED TO MAKE A LOT OF OTHER PEOPLE SUCCESSFUL AND WEALTHY.

Obama? Besides existing as a parasite for most of his life, his primary function as president has been to distribute pieces of an ever-shrinking and crumbling pie to OTHER parasites.

If they want to dig up the past then they need to dig up Obama's "missing years". All we know about him was that he was born. Grew up in Hawaii and Indonesia. Did drugs enthusiastically in High school. Something about a dead homosexual drug dealer and then he woke up sleeping in an alley before going to Harvard.

From the narrative we must assume that from High school to waking up in alley nothing significant ever took place. Was he ever present when a felony level drug transaction took place? What prompted him to leave paradise wind up an alley?

On Hannity last night they showed a Democrat ad attacking Romney--an unidentified male voice talked about how he and his fellow workers were all suddenly fired but Romney walked away with $100 million. Luntz and members of the audience (which seemed to be mostly pundits and political operatives) thought it was an effective ad because the speaker sounded credible. The problem for Romney with an ad like that is that the facts don't have to be accurate for people to believe it--and even if it is a pack of lies, how would you get the people who saw the initial ad to watch a rebuttal?

The Democrats think the Bain attacks will help in the swing states so they are likely to keep it up--Obama's goal is not to get people to like him but to get them to dislike Romney.

Romney should SUE for the release of Obama's records.

Surely, as the Republican nominee, Romney would have the elusive STANDING in any court in the land.

That’s two more for my rantlist:

7) National Debt burdens future returns, as well as adds uncertainty (two big stockmarket-suppressors)

8)What was once inner-city crime is now endemic. This not only degrades and limits where one wants to live, work, or set up shop. It increases infrastructure costs (e.g., transportation, security, insurance, etc.)

This is all bizarre, accusing Romney as a felon. This would typically be something desperate libs would do on the eve of an election. But now, in the middle of the summer?

I have to believe Obama is aware that a bombshell is about to hit him regarding his committing possible felonies (forged birth documents, SSN, forged Selective Service Registration application).

Arpaio’s news conference is set for next Tuesday.

Exactly...Romney should counter this Bain BS by very publicly releasing his actual birth certificate and school transcripts as well as the Bain documents that prove Obama’s smear is a lie. Romney should say he has nothing to hide and challenge Obama to do the same. Then drop the subject and keep hammering on the economy.

“Obama 1964 Divorce Papers - 13 Pages - Missing Pg 11”

The Court Ordered the Original Long form BC removed from the Obama Divorce record because SAD-Soetoro testified in the Soetoro Annulment hearing, 1971-72, BHO Sr. was not the father of BHO II.

The Original Long form BC contained witness attestations from the delivery doctor and hospital administrator BHO Sr. was the father. Since SAD-Soetoro later testified this was not true, the Court Ordered the Original Long form BC sealed and archived. An abbreviated short COLB was Ordered by the Court to be “filed” with HDoH with BHO Sr. listed as the father. The abbreviated COLB did not have witness attestations.

A BC that has been sealed and archived is legally void. It cannot be used in any Court proceeding for any reason. Hawaii is one of the few states in the USA that will provide an adult adoptee with a copy of their Original Long Form BC for genealogy purposes only.

All Romney has to do is trot out the former & current Bain execs who are Obama supporters and show what liars Axelrod and Obama are. Be sure to watch David Gergen’s final words to the end of the report(the libs know hope has faded).

Obama wants to make him look like a robber baron, Everything he says about it ought to be mocking Obama so they can't use it in any of their sound bites. Him getting angry and offended plays into their hands, it lets them act all outraged and keep it in play.

Instean Romney ought to just say "Did you hear the latest? Obama says he thinks I'm a criminal because I made an honest living doing a job that employed people. Did you get that? Well I have to admit I was wrong about him, I figured he just thought it ought to be a crime to make a living in this country. It turns out he actually thinks it already is a crime!" Then laugh at him. That would drive them crazy.

Not that I am a Romney supporter, but it sure looks as if he is running a tepid, from behind, campaign much like the last GOP nominee.
