Skip to comments.The case against reelection
Posted on 08/10/2012 10:27:27 AM PDT by Lakeshark
There are two ways to run against Barack Obama: stewardship or ideology. You can run against his record or you can run against his ideas.
The stewardship case is pretty straightforward: the worst recovery in U.S. history, 42 consecutive months of 8-plus percent unemployment, declining economic growth all achieved at a price of an additional $5 trillion of accumulated debt.
The ideological case is also simple. Just play in toto (and therefore in context) Obamas Roanoke riff telling small-business owners: You didnt build that. Real credit for your success belongs not to you you think you did well because of your smarts and sweat? he asked mockingly but to government that built the infrastructure without which you would have nothing.
In 1988, Michael Dukakis famously said, This election is not about ideology; its about competence. He lost. If Republicans want to win, Obamas deeply revealing, teleprompter-free you-didnt-build-that confession of faith needs to be hung around his neck until Election Day. The third consecutive summer-of-recovery-that-never-came is attributable not just to Obama being in over his head but, even more important, to whats in his head: a government-centered vision of the economy and society, and the policies that flow from it.
Four years of that and this is what you get.
Make the case and you win the White House.

Romney = ?
I like Krauthammer most of the time, and he is certainly right, in this one.
I said, I believe in American workers, I believe in this American industry, and now the American auto industry has come roaring back, he said. Now I want to do the same thing with manufacturing jobs, not just in the auto industry, but in every industry."
Awaiting other off teleprompter Marxist comments from Obama.
Repeat 24/7 TV and Radio ads in September and October and election won.
Rush is praising this right now, as we speak.
THe Dims have run the blacks on their plantation, and I am afraid the GOP E is trying to do something like that with conservatives and other tax payers.
They basically are threatening us into socialism, guilt tripping where there was no gloating, and souring everything, making their targets worry, using Alinsky techniques on the American people.
This of course is because they themselves are the b!tches of the Chinese, Saudies and Euros etc... because they all are so weak and cowardly.
America has become very sad looking under the stewardship of this mismanaged world peace making that is turning into a farce and a nightmare.
The Churchiness of the UN as in fact a beacon of hate and blame of Israel and America does not help either. These losers are going to have to find another rock to blame or spin around at the Mecca.
