Sept. 8, 2012 | me

Posted on 09/08/2012 2:43:48 PM PDT by Hetty_Fauxvert

I have seen several mentions on this site in the last few days that the Romney campaign has staffers who actively sift through this and other sites for ideas they can use. So I say, why make it hard for them? Let's post our best ideas here and let 'em have at it.

Let the fun begin!

Run ads showing boards making decisions on whether or not you can have that surgery or that treatment.

People have forgotten how bad Obamacare is, remind them! Show lines to get into doctors, delays in surgery for cancer, etc.

Labels work. Biden and Obama were rated the 2 most liberal Senators in the Senate before they were elected in 2008. Why not call Obama a liberal over and over until it sinks in. Avoid the talk of whether he is a nice guy or not or that he is a socialist or not or that he is a muslim or not or that he is a Kenyan or not.The media is only going to run interference for him.He is a liberal period and as such represents only a small constituency of our society. This is a center right country. The liberal label does not sell well. Ask Mike “Yes I admit I am a liberal” Dukakis.

Announce a Clint Eastwood Appreciation (You’ve Got to Let Him Go) day............Everyone tries to see his new movie “Trouble with the Curve” on the day it opens, or at least buys a ticket. Let the box office receipts tell the story the media is trying to suppress.

I would play Obama telling that woman her elderly mother is “too old” for life saving surgery and should be given a “pain pill” instead.

You can do a lot with Obama’s preposterous statements in which he plays doctor and makes stuff up your family’s medical treatment.

How about a series of headlines “Bush expands TSA power to seize property”, “Bush installing facial recognition technology” etc... with narration...then redline “Bush” replacing with “Obama”....

“How’s that hope and change workin’ for ya?”

They were all so worried about Bush assuming too much power under Homeland Security...Obama is a tyrant

Exactly! Post the clip of him saying ".. 1 term.. then post a stat of what employment was 08 vs. 12, then play the clip again, post another statistic, over and over....and over. There are hundreds of stats they could use, then at the end, show the clip of the TARDS claiming we are better off....

The Democrats told us at their convention they believe:

“Government Is The Only Thing We All Belong To”

Romney and Ryan believe:

The Government Belongs To Us

I’ll start. It seems to me that one of the most effective weapons against a stuffed shirt like Obama is ridicule. Clint Eastwood’s now-famous “Empty Chair” speech at the GOP convention was not only funny, it spawned its own meme.

I’d like to see the Romney campaign or their surrogates reach out to the swing-voters using humor. Mind you, it can’t be “mean” humor (anything the pundits can point at and yelp, “Racist!” or “Mean-spirited!”). It has to be amusing, to the point, and very hip and cool. I think Obama should be portrayed as yesterday’s news, and just about as “cool” as your old hipster dad who insists on having a beer with the young guys.

Our guys will never be invited on SNL (which is pretty dated, anyway) and if they were, they shouldn’t go because they’ll become the butt of the joke. But Ryan, who seems to have a sense of humor and is younger, “cooler,” and better looking than Obama, should seek out and accept invitations to Jon Stewart’s “Daily Show” and Stephen Colbert’s show. (Especially Colbert, since he has more of a sense of fair play than Stewart.) Ryan can present the Republican case with a smile and without becoming ruffled, and has a quick enough wit to banter with the hosts. A single appearance on these shows might inspire a lot of swing voters to say, “Hey, that Ryan guy is pretty funny! And I couldn’t see his tail and horns anywhere. Hm, maybe it’s okay to vote Republican this year?”

Another good venue to present humor is on YouTube. Some slick and very funny short spots on YouTube could catch fire go viral. The meme is: “Republicans cool; Obama old news. Fire the guy who can’t do the job!” Again, these YouTube presentations should not be mean-spirited or even close to it, as that will backfire. Romney campaign: Call up funny guys like Ron White, Dennis Miller, Jeff Foxworthy, and get them working with you!

When “the emperor has no clothes!” becomes obvious to everyone, it’s easy to dethrone that emperor. We need to use humor to make it obvious.

My recommendations for Romney:

1> ACT EXCITED - do not sit on your hands, do not worry about your grammar. Get to the meat of the matter think in “SOUND BITES”

2> new buzz phrase “A WAR ON MEN” - there are fewer men with jobs right now than at anytime in our history. We love women, but we also believe in string families; which mean MEN WITH JOBS.

3> Stop letting them get away with saying “a tax cut for the wealthiest 1%.” Just say - “That claim was fully disputed by the Washington Post - it's a tax break for EVERYONE especially the middle-class

4> Stop letting them own the middle-class. Working people are the middle-class, business owners, police and teachers. Not “illegal aliens”

5> Stop this business that “Immigrants” are good. Call them what they are “ILLEGAL IMMIGRAMTS ARE LAW BREAKERS” We understand their plight, but law-abiding Americans come first.

Talk about the Soyndra, Fast and Furious, Holder lawsuits agains states BO ignoring the people’s representatives and thus the people by issuing executive orders for everything he can’t or doesn’t feel like going thru Congress for. Talk about the corruption and investigations going on. Talk about putting citizens of other countries (illegals) above the citizens of the USA. Ask where his college records and medical history are . Talk about his mentors like in the 2016 movie and point out what kind of people they are and say BO shares their vision for the USA. The list goes on and on.

Agreed. If the Romney camp still needs ammo they have serious problems. Romney had better be ready to get “real” in the debates. Obama has nothing to run on. He has to much power. I should not have to say whether a President sucks or not. Get out of my life Washington D.C. !!

None of the above. The people have been exposed to the Obama legend and, as numbers indicate, many have consciously blinded themselves. It’s not that different from 08 really.

I’m reminded of Cassandra, who tried to warn the Trojans of the gift the Greeks left outside their gates. She never even got the chance to say “I told you so”, though, believe me, there’s no consolation in that either.

Negative campaigning won’t do it. Period. It’s a turn-off.

Romney needs to start promising. Actually he must do more than that; he has to evoke an image of a rational government, flourishing economy, equal treatment under law, and peaceful communities, and the real possibility of upward mobility,and the knowledge that effort will be rewarded. He has to present this as a certainty under his leadership—and I stress—make it tangible.

In short, he’s got to do what Reagan did: convince voters that this is still a strong country with enormous resources; that he’ll lift the jack-boot of ‘liberalism’ from our necks. Make the voters see a future.

Voters will move toward a future if they are confident, but they are not going to abandon the familiar for an unknown if they are not, and right now they’re not.

There is only one trick to leadership: you simply take them where they want to go.

Do this now, or else we’ll lose.

Courage.....you must speak with courage to the blacks and government workers. The Democrats have convinced them that scraps are good enough for them. The Democrats want to give them a stale, moldy handout. We want to give them a hand up to the banquet table. The filthy, stinking black kapos lead the black women to the abortion clinics where their future is killed. And they vote for the killers. The private sector can provide worthwhile, beneficial jobs to government employees, but not if the private sector is starved to death by taxes and regulation. Speak directly to the blacks and government workers. The Democrat kapos can only maintain their power through fear. Drive out that fear and the kapos run like the bullies they are.

Let it be known that a vote for Romney is a vote for Ron Paul as president.

1. Romney elected.
2. Romney/Ryan sworn in.
3. Ryan resigns as VP.
4. Ron Paul is appointed VP.
5. Romney resigns and Ron Paul becomes President.
6. Rand Paul is appointed VP.

Thus begins the Paulist Dynasty.

Quit using the BLS faus unemployment numbers! The real number is closer to double what they spout. Include the migration to SS Disability in the unemployment rate.

Film a documentary of the Democrat history of racism (KKK, Democratic South in days gone by, the Dem fight against equal rights, millions of black babies aborted).

Revise the misery index.

Fact-check everything they say.

Koch brothers buy CBS or ABC and make John Bolton editor-in-chief.

A friend gave me a print out today of an interview The Kenyan did on Meet The Press. Sunday September 7th. 2008. 11.48 EST.

Then Senator Obama was asked about his stance on the American Flag by General Bill Ginn USAF (ret.)

His answer is shocking.

I hope the Romney campaign is "on' it.

A Google search of General Ginn will bring it up.

It is rather long so I won't post it here - also I'm not sure if we are allowed to post from NBC shows.

Romney simply needs to drive home the point of how terribly screwed up this country really is and how there is currently no leadership in place to deal with the problems. Emphasize some of Bain & Co.’s (not Bain Capital) success stories, and show the American people that he has made a career out of saving businesses about to go under. America needs a doctor, and Romney is the one best suited for that position.

Point out that while Klintoon was being serviced by Monica his teenage daughter was upstairs in their home

Document the massive corruption that laundered several TRILLION of our $$

Ask why the Klintoos both sold out their "values" (and how much $$ they received) to pretend to support Obammy

Compare The "Czars" to the Founding Fathers and constantly question their Constitutional authority

Ask if its OK for the Gov't to take my money and give to someone else, how long before they come take my car and give it to someone who needs it??
