New York Times Editor: Ann Romney 'Slipped The Knife' Into President Obama
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 08/29/2012 6:27:32 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

TAMPA, Florida | August 29, 2012: To Republicans in the RNC convention hall last night, and surely to the majority of Americans watching at home, regardless of their politics, Ann Romney came across as a warm, kind and caring woman.

But the editors of the New York Times occupy a very different universe. In a nasty piece of work this morning, editorial page editor Andrew Rosenthal painted an ugly picture of Ann Romney. Using the most violent of metaphors, Rosenthal saw a woman who, of all things, had "slipped a knife into President Obama." More after the jump.

Sounds like the NYT is trying to encourage violence against Republicans in general and the Romney’s specifically.

Hey, I’m not outraged; I hope it turns out to be true. If she *did* slip him a knife, it was a very sweet and subtle knife, but I hope it pierced an artery and bleeds ol’ blue-lips white come November. Politically speaking, of course.

Democrats Don’t Remove Ad Making Fun of MS Patient Ann Romney

by Steven Ertelt | LifeNews.com | 7/24/12 6:19 PM

Last week, LifeNews reported on a Democratic Party ad that essentially made fun of a patient with multiple sclerosis, the wife of presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

The Democratic National Committee unveiled a video featuring footage of Ann Romney’s dancing show horse as a way of mocking Mitt Romney for “dancing” around the issue of his taxes and whether he would make public additional tax returns that the IRS has certified are legitimate. The video was meant to be the first in a series of videos on the topic and the first featured the horse, owned jointly by Ann and Mitt Romney.

However, Ann Romney owns the horse in part because she relies on the animal, and other show horses she trains,

Slipping the knife in does not kill. It is the twisting that kills.

Now that the knife is in, others will twist and twist and twist.

Figuratively she did just that. She single-handedly dismantled the last 6 months of the Obama campaign. It was beautiful to watch.

I, too, agree with him. She tore apart the Obama myth by contrasting true beauty, success, and, yes, boldness (”He will not fail”)in an unapologetic speech on success American style. The fact she didn't even mention the impostors by name was genius!

I think this may be part of what the idiot is talking about:

But let me say this to every American who is thinking about who should be our next president:

No one will work harder. No one will care more. No one will move heaven and earth like Mitt Romney to make this country a better place to live!

It’s true that Mitt has been successful at each new challenge he has taken on. It amazes me to see his history of success actually being attacked. Are those really the values that made our country great? As a mom of five boys, do we want to raise our children to be afraid of success?

Do we send our children out in the world with the advice, “Try to do... okay?”

And let’s be honest. If the last four years had been more successful, do we really think there would be this attack on Mitt Romney’s success?

Of course not.

I posted this on another thread, but here’s how I think Ann Romney “slipped the knife” to the Obama campaign. I take comfort in the fact that the NYT felt the need to disparage this speech......

As someone who was for Sarah Palin, then Herman Cain, then Newt Gingrich, and I even liked Rick Santorum over Romney, I’m beginning to think we may have gotten lucky to end up with Romney-Ryan.

Getting Obama out has trumped all other considerations for me.

I think the Ann Romney speech may be a game-breaker. First of all, she managed to put me more at ease with Mitt Romney, no small task.

When she walked out on stage, I said to myself “Wow, she is so beautiful”. I felt it was critical that her speech would provide a great contrast to Michelle Obama. I think she accomplished much, much more than that.

Ann Romney’s words, actions, and tone on that stage provided a stark contrast with all liberal women, without a disparaging word. Ann Romney was at once a throwback to a time that many women now are longing for, and a call to what the future could be for all women.

At first, I saw some giddiness, and some girlish laughter that I wasn’t sure I liked. Then, as the speech went on, I realized her femininity was becoming, refreshing, apropriate, and exciting to see on that stage.

Contrast the vibe you got from Ann Romney with the angry, women-as-victims tone from the women of the left. If you haven’t seen this speech, please try to watch it and while watching it, think of the chasm between Ann Romney and Hillary Clinton.

If you’ve seen the speech, you know exactly what I’m talking about.

If this speech was designed to get women out there to re-think their support for the Democratic Party as surrogate husband, then I think she may have gotten some converts. Therein lies the power in Ann Romney’s speech.

Therein lies the reason the NYT thought this speech something to fear.

The NYT’s problem with Ann was that she was 1) likeable, 2) actually in love with her hubby, and 3) much, much more believable than Mooch-elle, the (anti) food lady.

I'm sure Andrew Rosenthal of the New York Times will treat Mrs. Obama to the same types of comments. Expect him to point out that Mrs. Obama's speech was 'well written' - implying a speech writer ( does this creep believe Mrs Obama will stand up and give an off-the-cuff speech? Or that Mrs Romney would?)

Will Andrew snidely point out the obvious when it's the wife of the man he's voting for? Don't count on it.

His surprise that a speech at a political convention might be political? What's next? With a roll of the eyes a comment that there was a meeting in a school that dealt with education? Or newsroom that dealt with news?

Yeah, I'm waiting to see Andrew's crisp clean unbiased comments about Mrs. Obama's speech. HA. For Mrs. Obama we can expect blinders, delusions and fawning - the Times in full suck-up mode. None of the pointing out that her speech might have political elements in it... Nope. No way will that be pointed out...

But we'll have to wait and see. Andrew might try to be fair now that he knows we're on to him. Guess the Times will have to assign a different writer to Mrs. Obama so their biases and double standards aren't so obvious.. and easy to compare.
