Obama Campaign Sends Around Misleading DNC Video on GOP Debate
ABC News ^ | June 14, 2011 | Jake Tapper

Posted on 06/14/2011 6:30:31 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

At last night’s Republican debate, the seven candidates talked about unemployment, taxes, regulations, former Gov. Tim Pawlenty’s talk of a goal of 5% GDP growth, the individual mandate in the health care bill, the Independent Medicare Advisory Board, welfare reform, the Tea Party, currency policy, the National Labor Relations Board, Boeing, TARP, the auto bailout, Rep. Paul Ryan’s Medicare proposal, former Gov. Mitt Romney’s health care program in Massachusetts, raising the debt ceiling, raising the retirement age for Social Security, the role of religion in public life, the 10th amendment, Libya, Afghanistan, and so on.

But President Obama’s 2012 campaign is sending out a DNC video suggesting the candidates spoke only about sharia law, an anti-gay-marriage amendment, repealing health care, Sarah Palin, and the space program.

“You should watch this,” says campaign manager Jim Messina in the email to supporters, “if you or anyone you know is wondering where the leading GOP candidates want to go, this clip makes it clear. The first big Republican debate last night was like a time machine. They want to go back to the failed policies of the past that caused the economic crisis in the first place. They want to go back and reopen every settled debate that they've lost over the last few years -- on the health care law, on ‘Don't Ask, Don't Tell,’ and on reforming Wall Street's abuses. They even want to turn back the clock and end Medicare as we know it.”

This video is the “talking points” or “marching orders” from on high to the rest of the Democrat/Media complex.

PROJECTION.

Dems are p!ssing into the wind.

This will be all about the economy.

And by Nov 2012, 2009 will seem like the “good old days”

The big news here is that is the ACTUAL HEADLINE from the ABC News blog. If that is how ABC frames it, the Democrats are cooked.

Its not ABC News, its Jake Tapper.

What I don't understand is how he gets these stories past his editor.

Last night’s debate showed me how Michele Bachmann would destroy Obama in a head to head debate.She is way ahead of Obama on issues,jobs,the budget,her legislative experience,pro-life,care for the children of others and love of this great country.It is hard to find an issue or area of life where independents and conservatives would not overwwellmingly choose Michele.

That is so true! Such a headline would not have appeared on a lamestream media site as recently as a year ago.

Isn’t that video an indictment of the pathetic job Commie News Network did moderating the debates?

And hey, they should they be careful what they wish for. Democrats are going to get SHELLACKED on the economy and what they have done to the middle class the past 3 years.

Jake Tapper is the ONLY Lefty who habitually lifts the rock and shows the wiggly things underneath doing the busy work of the Democrat Party and Obamao parties.

It’s quite possible that CNN asked the stupid questions to get the answers needed to make the video. Sort of a public-private (CNN-DNC) partnership to help reelect the president.

What was that? Their best shot?

LOL

Idiotic in the extreme and feeble, as if gasping for breath.

Dishonest too.

It’s gonna be so easy to look down on Obama and rip his failures right along with what we are going to do about it.

Someone should say “I was sent here by the American People to replace you.”

“You’re FIRED!”

Yes it is their talking points of lies. Did they include Ryan pushing granny off a cliff in a wheelchair? No one but a very small percentage will fall for this crap.

Why is ABC exposing the talking points of lies is the question of the day?

Is it because this little step is nothing compared to them exposing Obama all the way, in his corruption of aiding and abetting and providing comfort to the enemy terrorists,WalpinGate,GunWalkerGate,KineticWarGate?

It is a big expose as it exposes Obama’s look at the shiny necklace con artist beyond politics- campaign.

Strange!

As to turning back the clock, absolutely! Guilty as charged.

Could I please have the economy of 1956, 1971, or 1983 again?

Specifically, it is Jake Tapper at ABC, who has been consistently tough on Obama.

Return to the failed policies that caused the problem?????

The “STIMULUS” CAUSED the problem, and that failed policy is still in full swing with disastrous result.

We should should shout that simple truth from the housetops.

“......and what they have done to the middle class the past 3 years.”

3 years ???? The Democrat deconstruction of the USA began in 2007 with the Democrat takeover of the Senate and the House.

Gaining supermajorities in 2009, things could have gotten much worse than they did. We lucked out in that respect, but then again they are incompetant.

Their time has past, and it is up to us to roll up our sleeves, take away ALL Democrat power, and put humpty dumpty back together again....
