Barack Obama's 2012 plan: 'Kill Romney' (The Thug-In-Chief now threatening possible opponents)
Politico ^ | 8/9/2011 | By ALEXANDER BURNS

Posted on 08/09/2011 5:18:33 AM PDT by tobyhill

Barack Obama’s aides and advisers are preparing to center the president’s re-election campaign on a ferocious personal assault on Mitt Romney’s character and business background, a strategy grounded in the early stage expectation that the former Massachusetts governor is the likely GOP nominee.

,,,,

Unless things change and Obama can run on accomplishments, he will have to kill Romney,” said a prominent Democratic strategist aligned with the White House.

He might want to center on Perry. Romney’s a goner.

That’s fine. Let Obama attack Romney while our real nominee positions for victory.

“He might want to center on Perry. Romney’s a goner.”

Another demonstration of sheer incompetence.

It’s a good thing, really.

The frakin’ idiots can’t run on anything they have done; thus, it becomes apparent that the only thing they can do is to gambit towards character assassination of ANY Rep presidential candidate, just not Romney.

Romney is toast as soon as Perry and/or Palin get into the race. Nobody wants warmed over, unreliable mushiness in 2012. Romney is the answer to the question nobody is bothering to ask.

Prepare yourselves. 2012 is going to be the most despicable, sick garbage political campaign in US History.

0 and the Progressive Democrat Fascist party have nothing to run on.

Their only hope is to repeat the Coons-0'Donnell or Angle-Reid races. They will stop at nothing to win.

Kill? Isn’t that a 4 letter word on the 0bama civility tour?

No media outrage, coast to coast headlines?

No Romney fan here but this is outrageous.

OBAMA’S PATH TO MARXIST TRANSFORMATION GETS ANOTHER 2.4 TRILLION DOLLARS FROM CONGRESS
http://www.libertynewsonline.com/article_301_30905.php

‘He is said to have already raised at least one billion dollars much of which will be diverted to Project Vote in an all-out attempt to ensure his re-election with the help of massive voting fraud and bribery of labor unions. This transformation to Marxism can only be stopped by patriots who value freedom, self-sufficiency and the principles upon which America was founded.’

Romney is just cannon fodder, along with most of the early candidates. The real star players are going to show up later in the game, after they learn the strategy of the opposing side. I bet they are closely watching what is happening to the people who announced their candidacies early, and are taking notes.

You are right, it smacks of desperation on their part, obama’s lackeys are lashing out at any perceived threat.

Too early for them to “kill off” Perry—they’d love for him to be our nominee!

Such a civil tone!

I have seen some vicious invective against Mitt on FR...but no one has called for his murder.

I would hope you see I was applying the standard the Hussein cult set for our side. I did this for rhetorical purposes.

If anything, we wish Mitt Romney a happy, healthy and long term retirement. Preferably beginning today...

Obama must be getting a woodie seeing rioters in Britain.

Feeling the urge to go on a rampage with a machete like some of his relatives in Kenya.

It is my belief that the President Obama will declare a state of emergency, suspend elections and declare himself El president for life!

Well, this is great news, because Mittens won’t be the nominee. It will be Perry. And Perry will fight back.

So.....after 3 years of listening to O bash republicans, bash the rich, bash our allies, bash atm’s, bash doctors, bash bankers, bash businessmen, bash banks.......everyone is expected to actually listen while he bashes Romney?
What a joke!
That would just make Romney’s poll numbers jump wouldn’t it?

That and getting all those fake voters with ACORN's help and George Soros paying to get the right people in the right places.

That's how I'm looking at it too. More blame as that's the only thing Obama knows how to do well.

I think this will backfire on him as the average voters out there don't like negativity with no solutions, especially the Independents out there who are already disgusted enough w/ Obama as it is.

Exactly. Romney has no chance so anyone on the Obama staff who threatens violence against him is only making Obama look bad but is not hurting the GOP one bit.

Yes, and I think we would strike a blown against the PC attack on language if we show that we Conservatives have the intelligence to recognize the difference between figurative and literal language.

Something they clearly do not have.
