MoveOn.org is out with a four-minute video thats been showing up on the interwebz, most notably Facebook, with this enticing title: “This video MIGHT stop Romney from becoming president.”
In the video, two GenXers reveal to you with cheerful sincerity the GOPs three-pronged strategy to get Mitt Romney elected president, and, as you can well imagine, its all part of a dire racist plot funded by the Koch Brothers. I exaggerate .but nowhere near as much as the video does.
If you can stand to watch it, its below, but heres a summary of their major prongs:
The GOP has been sabotaging our economy and then blaming Obama for it. One of the ways theyre doing this is by starving states of money. Its all about defeating Obama, you see, and the strategy is working because the latest polls indicate more Americans actually blame Obama for the struggling economy. Not George Bush, not Wall Street, not banks, not Congress, but poor, power-lacking President Obama.
This is real tinfoil hat territorybelieving that any party, on the left, right, in the middle or on Mars, would adopt a risky strategy of sinking the national economy because they knowinsert Snidely Whiplash laughter herethe people will blame, not them, but the other guy, their adversary!
Thats real power, if you can pull it off, especially when youre not actually in power, as the Republicans werent at the outset of the Obama term.
Congresss approval ratings are regularly in the basement, too, yet somehow, miraculously, amazingly, stunningly, Congressional Republicans figured out how to shift blame for the economic situation away from their dastardly deeds onto the leader of our country. You know, the one who promised to fix things when he took office. The one whose party held the White House, the Senate and the House for two whole years.
Man, but those Republicans are sneaky. Apparently, they were able to fight every reform of the presidents. I can only assume they did this by drugging congressional Democrats who, as pointed out above, controlled Congress for the first two years of the presidents term.
The Koch Brothers. Nuff said.
Well, I do have to go on did you know that outside groups have already spent seven times as much to defeat Obama as similar groups supporting Obama? And all this money means misleading information is pummeling voters in swing states. No, Im not talking about mainstream news, which regularly tilts left. Im talking paid advertisements that promote scurrilous ideas, such as accusing the nominee of being responsible for a steelworkers wifes death.
Oh, wait, sorry. Wrong misinformation and wrong candidate. That ad, of course, is one on the presidents side, which he has not yet criticized.
A racist strategy to suppress votes. That is, voter ID programs and projects that clean up voter rolls so that, well, only real voters vote.
Among their evidence? Pennsylvania Republican state majority leader Mike Turzai said that passing the states Voter ID law would allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania. Of course, he couldnt possibly have meant that by limiting the chance of voter fraud, the Republican presidential nominee now has a fair chance to win instead of having the election taken from him in tight districts. No, that interpretation isnt dramatic or sinister enough. This is part of the GOPs secret strategy to win the White House, after all. Except, of course, that Turzai made his Biden-like remarks at a public meeting, so its not really secret.
To recap, from this video we are to believe the following:
I have an idea, lets flip this so it works for Democrats. Then, the three-pronged strategy might be:
REVEALED: THE GOP STRATEGY
Libby Sternberg is a novelist.
The Obama Administration: A Triumph of the Will
I thought this was the Left’s strategy.
It is. Moveon.org is just projecting
Ah, a novelist. This is a work of fiction. Nicely done.
Whoops. I misread this and what Libby was doing. I apologize, Libby.
The people most likely to do that would be the world's thinnest rocketeers, the Norks ..... and then only because the Left Coast and Hawaii would be about all they can reach for the next five to ten years, with whatever peewee devices their No Dong At All IRBM's can actually get downrange past our Aegis picket of Block 3/4 Standard missiles.
“Romney’s intention to nuke all of this nation’s homosexual enclaves.”
Wow, and I thought Romney was not a good candidate! Sounds more and more like he has some great plans.
