"You can tax the rich. You can take everything they have. You can't fill the deficit. You can't pay for medicare. We just don't have enough rich people to do it. Apparently, my opponent thinks we're going to find these people on Mars. I wish him luck. They don't exist."
Less than 30 seconds and makes Obama look stupid. Its NOT that hard to do this stuff. It does, however, take some creativity and a willingness to tell the Election Consultants and Elites that you're going to make waves.
Precisely. Rinse and repeat. And repeat. Expose the other side’s methods, educate voters. Has any of that been done? I don’t watch TV=, and in my area there weren’t any commercials anyway, but I know that during the debates Romney played a nice guy, played well but played defense. The worst thing is that Obama and his shenanigans, his questionably history, background have not been publicly exposed by our bashful side. Could Romney have lost any worse if he had run what is contemptuously regarded as a “negative campaign”. And if he had, then what difference would it have made in the end? Obamao is such a despicable character despite being portrayed as a saint by the MSM that a negative campaign is the only method of exposing him.
ah, but that’s so “uncivil”...
And the “better people”, ie, the left, will make disdainful remarks if we did that...
And THAT is the only thing that most 0bama voters care about. They envy the rich. The 0 voters are too stupid, lazy, ignorant, and dishonest to actually make enough money themselves, BUT they don't realize that. They think of themselves as being kept back by those who actually do make a success of life, and to see the successful punished is all they care about. Goes with the entitlement mentality.
I am mystified that no republican has tried the same approach since.
Gotta conclude that today's GOP disagrees with RR's premise that its the character & industry of the American people that makes America great; the government simply gets in the way.
