Obama Team Sharpens Attacks on Republican Field, Defends President
FoxNews ^ | 8/14/11 | Unknown

Posted on 08/14/2011 7:08:55 PM PDT by Blood of Tyrants

Not knowing who the eventual Republican presidential nominee will be in the 2012 election, President Obama's supporters are taking the opportunity to blast all of the GOP candidates, using aggressive language to argue that the crop of contenders is either uninterested or incapable of helping Americans.

Much of the criticism is focused on describing the candidates as lackeys to the Tea Party, which establishment Democrats have classified as right-wing zealots bent on destroying the U.S.

snip

"In a Republican field that has already pledged allegiance to the Tea Party and failed to present any plan that will benefit the middle class or create the jobs America needs to win the future, Governor Perry offers more of the same," Obama campaign spokesman Ban LaBolt said Saturday after Texas Gov. Rick Perry jumped into the race.

This is laughable. EVERYTHING Obama has done has destroyed private sector jobs. He has absolutely no intention of creating any job that doesn't have a government paycheck. The only things that Obama can create is poverty and misery.

What...are...these...people...smoking? I truly miss the days of Bill Clinton’s spin machine. Those guys were pros.

This is the most tin-eared stuff I’ve ever seen out of a Democrat.

Nowhere in this story does it mention what have been Barry’s accomplishments or how they would do things differently.

When they defend the president, they are lying. That’s the only way they can defend him. Democrats are beginning to see this and they don’t like what they are seeing. The Democrats may have made the largest mistake of their lives by voting him into office, but it seems that they are now willing to correct that mistake.

I'll bet you that the vast majority of people who voted for Obama in 2008 don't even know what a 'lackey' is. Probably never heard the word. May even think it's a compliment....

(These people are just plain stupid!)

Am waiting for Obama to read the Tea Leaves and decide to be a one term President and go down without a fight. Hillary is their best chance and quite frankly their most competent Cabinet member not soiling herself too badly. However I think Obama’s ego will allow him to go down with the ship and destroy his party and save our country in a back door way. Leading from behind will leave him behind as we restore our nation and be thankful for our Tea Party folks and other right thinking citizens.

Pity that the GOP and RNC are so incompetent that they can't make a case that the Democrats are bought, sold, and paid for by marxists and sex perverts.

The new RNC Chairman is MIA, GOP.COM still has communist red wall paper, and Washingtonians like Romney still walk amongst us without even breaking a sweat that their next speech might be a reprise of Ceausescu's last.

These RNC pathetic douchebags wont even take the muzzie in chief to task for all of the vacations hes been taking on the federal tax payers dime.

“Nowhere in this story does it mention what have been Barry’s accomplishments or how they would do things differently.”

His only accomplishments have been to fail, fail and fail. The only campaign option left to him is to bash any possible opponents. He now has a (non) record that he cannot possible run on.

I love how they lambaste the TEA party and say that Americans don’t want what the TEA party wants, they want solutions .. as if Obama has any.

What a joke these people are.

Whoever gets the republican nod has a very easy job. Just show what Obama has done in the past three years.

Play golf, screw up the economy, play golf, frighten employers into not hiring, play golf, vacation, play golf, give us Obamacare that no one wanted, play golf, blame bush, play golf, bailouts, play golf, bankrupt people and business, play golf, dragged his feet on the gulf oil spill, play golf, drive up gas prices, play golf, put more people on food stamps than ever before, play golf, gunrunner, play golf, take over the auto industry at a massive cost to taxpayers, play golf, added 40% to the national deficit all on his own, play golf, vacation, play golf, date nights, play golf, insult our allies, play golf, apologize to our enemies, play golf, devalued the dollar, play golf .......

anyone want to pick up the ball here I am getting carpel tunnel listing all his “achievements” of hope and change.

did I mention he likes to play golf?

All that needs to be said is that 0bama was part of the Demonrat takeover of the Congress in the Senate during Bush and then became President with total control of Congress to push through all his disastrous programs. Of course, when does reality have anything to do with what they say and how they lie?! They expect people to remain ignorant. And the only time they will be scared is when their opponents actually use all the ammo they provide because they exist on lies.

This article could just as easily been written by someone at the New York Times or Washington Post. It is interesting to note that more and more commentators have noted Fox’s recent turn to the middle. It is also true that Fox is providing more work than ever before to uber-liberals. Limbaugh has commented on this change, and probably only holds back because of his friendship with Roger Ailes.

You can always tell what Barry and his commie libs are doing by watching what they accuse the Republicans of doing.

It’ll me mighty hard for Obama to run on his record. In fact I guarantee that he WON’T run on his record. He won’t tell the people what a great thing he did by passing Obama care. He won’t talk about all the jobs he has created. He won’t talk about how he had worked on energy independence. He won’t talk about what a great job he has done against terrorism. All he will do is try to convince people that somehow it would be worse without him.

Perry has given two speeches in two days. He has had some memorable one liners against the administration already. This response is tepid. The Obama W.H. had better look for some freash writers if this is the best they’ve got.

From the story, all he is trying to convince the people is that the TEA Party will be worse than him. His campaign theme will be “I may be bad, but they are worse!”

You're right if you mean he offers more of the same like GWB.

Perry is after all another manifestation of the dreaded Compassionate Conservative, just like GWB.

This is a great response to any dimTurd over what 0dumb0 has done for the past 3 years.... spend trillions of dollars, bankrupt our nation, play shitty golf & extravagant hedonistic vacations are his greatest non-achievements.

I hope & pray that whoever the GOP nominee is, that he or she will go after 0dumb0 like a pit bull and never let up.

Now, having driven 0’s approval index to Negative 22, the 0 machine has decided they need to kick the campaign mode into hysteric overdrive.

This is NOT going to help.

Their whole problem is too many “Independent” voters are waking up to the fact 0 is a street agitator pretending to be a leader. Making him agitate more and lead less is not going to help them

>I hope & pray that whoever the GOP nominee is, that he or she will go after 0dumb0 like a pit bull and never let up.<

It would be the easiest thing to do. They don’t have to be nasty about it. Just state facts.
It would effectively cut off Obama from the attack and put him on the spot to defend himself.
In doing so, he would have to outright lie and fact checking would be the end of him.

But I expect that the GOP will once again fall short and snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
