CONFIRMED: OBAMA CAMPAIGN IS OUT OF IDEAS

CONFIRMED: OBAMA CAMPAIGN IS OUT OF IDEAS

Mike Flynn

Earlier today, I conjectured that the Obama campaign may be out of attack lines to use against Mitt Romney. After Obama's disastrous debate on October 3rd, it was remarkable that his campaign didn't try to launch any new attacks or create any new diversions to change the media narrative. I wondered that, perhaps, he was out of bullets. Turns out I was right.

Politico is reporting that the Obama campaign is going to go back to the issue of Mitt Romney's tax returns. They have unveiled a new 30-second ad on Mitt's taxes to run in several swing states.

Um, Obama campaign, you did this once before....

Good news.

Romney already paid top dollar on corporate tax, then another 14 percent on capital gains.

Plus, look at his charitable giving.

The Marxist and his his evil party can go to he//.

Thanks very much for the pre-debate head’s-up, idiots.

Haven’t seen it noted anywhere, but in the debate Biden twice pointed out that R&R consider combat troops (combat pay is not taxable) among the freeloaders. Despicable!

Wow. If you can’t even play the race card things must be really bad.

You can do the Chicago smear machine gig all you want, but if your attacks against the other campaign peak too early you’re screwed. Obama’s not the first one to learn that hard lesson.

I'm sure they've got something in mind. Question is, can they pull it off without having the details leaked first. My guess is Billary has moles everywhere.

Sort of a Captain Obvious headline. They've been out of ideas since before Truman.

Obama just ran the big bird ad on Saturday Night Live. I had not seen the ad and at first thought it was an SNL parody. It is absolutely the stupidest ad of any kind I have ever seen.

Romney is going to win and win big!

Been there..done that...It was launched in Benghazi on the 11th...

There were supposed to be hostages taken from the consulate....,

To be released for the Blind Sheik ...Obama gets a boost.

But locals got overexcited and killed them all.

And the rest is history.

There is still time for an October Surprise. It’s all in the timing, and it could be a November 1 surprise, too!

“I’m sure they’ve got something in mind.”

There is always a last minute story that the media pushes about 3 days - 2 weeks before the election.

* Bush drunk driving
* Al Qaa Qaa
* Dan Rather’s falsified TANG letter

They time it so they think there’s not enough time to for the public to process past the bump the dem gets from a supposedly big story.

Most people don’t remember. But the 2000 election would not have been close but for the drunk driving story three days before the election. The numbers moved 5 points during those three days against Bush.

Al Qaa Qaa fizzled and the Dan Rather TANG story, well, we know what Buckhead did to that.

But they have something cooking for the last minute. So it is important that we drive the Benghazi scandal hard. Benghazi has all the earmarks of a major scandal that will rock Zero’s numbers hard. It is only beginning to take hold with the public. The next two weeks will tell whether the Old Media can spike it and move on.

Benghazi may force them to move the timetable of the big story that is coming up somewhat. That would give them an excuse not to talk about Benghazi but to focus on this huge new breaking story.

Clarity about Benghazi is our friend. It is clear that HRC and Zero failed to protect our diplomats for P.C. reasons—don’t want to offend Muslims by having actual Americans with guns and even worse, bullets, at the embassy. And it is clear they have lied to cover their dereliction of duty. Obfuscation and confusion is the Old Media’s friend.

Be Clear.

My guess is they’ll try something domestic, if anything.

They’ve damaged their credibility on the foreign stuff.

Negotiating with terrorists, trading with terrorists. Hard to see Obama parlaying that into a boost-worthy victory.

I think the setup was, sending in another SEAL team, eliminating the terrorist hostage-takers and bringing our people home safely.

No, I'm talking about a big crisis, a military crisis. A nuke in Houston like crisis. Shut down elections, etc. I just can't put it past this scary president.

I agree. Everything they touch turns from gold to crap. The anti-Midas touch. I think the Benghazi setup was planned somehow, and see how well that worked? Employment numbers? Figured that out in what? One day? Ya, they're out of bullets and anything else they try to pull will be viewed as pale desperation. It will only hurt themselves.

If he does something crazy where people die— I don’t think that helps him. The fact that he didn’t attend regular security briefings will keep the country from rallying around him. Look for Romney to hit him with this. No security briefings, no regular cabinet meetings, no meetings with his jobs panel. He’s been campaigning and giving speeches since 2008.

This may be the next step in a late-Oct, contrived Tax-Return-Gate. Contriving a bad perception can swing a couple %’s in Ohio. Not sayin, just sayin.
