Obama warns of fall Romney 'smear' machine
Washington Examiner ^ | 2/1/12 | Paul Bedard

Posted on 02/01/2012 10:50:58 AM PST by Nachum

The Obama-Biden reelection campaign, which just announced it banked $224 million in 2011, is stepping up fundraising as it steels for an expected fall "smear" machine from GOP front-runner Mitt Romney. In an email to supporters this morning, Obama campaign manager Jim Messina warned that the Republicans will have a fat bank account to tap for negative ads, something both Romney and Newt Gingrich did in Florida. "They're going to try to spend and smear their way to the White House," Messina said about Republican groups and candidates.

Oh, no. The Mittens “smear” machine will have an orgasm over Obama. If Barry was smart he'd “come together” with Mittens, drop Joe Biden, and make Mittens his VP choice.

Romney smear Machine against Obama Smear Machine is like a ten year old light weight kid fighting the world boxing champ. It is not going to be a context what so ever. Obama the Lord and Master of class warfare is going to attach the chain of Bain Capital around Romney neck and drag him like an ancient time gladiator dragged his defeated opponent in the arena. Romney utter defeat against Obama would be remembered in the annals of Presidential elections forever.

Yes, that does appear to be Romney’s method when his opposition stands to his right. Willard hates conservatives. But with progressives or ideological fellow travelers like Obama he’s much more neutral.

I totally agree. Mittens is now and always was and always will be a liberal dummycrat. He'd be perfect on the dummycrat ticket. I wish he'd go away somewhere and leave what's left of the Repub Party alone.

Good stuff Sarge. Reminds of CBS (Clinton Broadcasting Company), NBC (Nobody but Clinton), and ABC (All Bill Clinton). The MSM is in the tank for Obama.

Just indicative of how thoroughly effed the state of political affairs are in this country. White horse, white hat, I don't care but we are in dire need of someone other than the current crop of republicrats who are literally being shoved down our throats, again.

If Mittens is the GOP nominee - we have an alternative in Randall Terry as the DEM candidate.

What's left unsaid...So we're going to do the same thing this election as well, especially since it worked the last time we did it.

That's going to come back to bite her.

We now have gas at 4.00 a gallon and 10 percent “real” unemployment.

We should have 5.00 a gallon gas by October with Arab spring in full summer bloom, and 9 to 11 percent unemployment.

Let's see if Mr. Soebarkah get reelected on that record.

From what I’ve seen of Romney in Fl, if he ran like that in a general election, the mud pile from both will be unlike any seen in history.

I wouldn’t be shocked if they end up blowing 2 billion between them and Super PACS.

The GOP-E will tell Romney not to launch smear attacks against Obama for fear that it will alienate “the mushy middle”. Romney, not wanting to piss off the GOP-E, will oblige.

Obama’s people are trying to innoculate his campaign from all of his gaff’s, lies, broken promises, corrupt practices and connections and failed programs being paraded before the voters. They should be worried-it’s a target rich environment. It will also reveal what the MSM HASN’T been reporting.

The Romney machine needs to point out the facts:

The following describes the Obama Economic Record:

Unemployed Americans:
Inauguration day: 12 million
Today: 13.1 million
Change: +1.1 million

Unemployment rate:
Inauguration day: 7.8%
Today: 8.5%
Change: +9%

Gas Prices:
Inauguration day: $1.85
Today: $3.39
Change: +83%

Federal Debt:
Inauguration day: $10.6 trillion
Today: $15.2 trillion
Change: +43%

Debt per person:
Inauguration day: $34,731
Today: $48,699
Change: +$13,968

Misery Index:
Inauguration day: 7.8
Today: 11.9
Change: +53%

College tuition:
Inauguration day: $6,591
Today: $8,244
Change: +25%

Worker health insurance costs:
Inauguration day: $3,354
Today: $4,129
Change: 23%

Food stamp recipients:
Inauguration day: 32 million
Today: 46 million
Change: +45%

American in poverty:
Inauguration day: 39.8 million
Today: 46.2 million
Change: +6.4 million

Home values:
Inauguration day: $169,700
Today: $147,800
Change: -13%

US Global Competitiveness:
Inauguration day: 1st
Today: 5th
Change: - 4 places

Please add the number of rounds of golf Obama played, the vacations and costs this family spent on the taxpayer’s dime while reflecting upon the above listed statistics. Romney can avoid smearing Obama by just reciting the facts. Be prepared for a cataclysmic avalanche of attacks from Obama.

Obama answer: Bain Capital, Bain Capital, and Bain Capital… and he has 1 billion dollars in his campaign and another 10 billion dollars from the media to repeat the same thing again and again and again. There is no way under the sun that a majority of voters are going to voters for investment banker who founded a company Bain Capital who main function is to sell and buy businesses and in the process thousands have lost their jobs. Only delusional people would think otherwise.

You have the absolutely wrong person in Romney to point out these facts. It would not work against Obama if Romney is the man pointing them out.

By the time Oromney gets around to running against Obama, he will have trashed his chances with conservatives. He won’t smear Obama like he has Newt, because Obama isn’t conservative.
