Mitt had better have more to his campaign than merely attacking ‘bam’s economic disasters.
Unemployed and poor people want a government check; they’ll accept less in exchange for security. They think they’re victims deserving their fair share. Money’s just paper, and rich people like Romney have more than they could ever use.
Remember, they voted for Roosevelt bottom of the depression. Three times. Walter Williams pointed this out on Rush last Friday.
Mitt has to promise people a better future. He has to share a vision with them, one that will make them believe better things are possible.
I agree. A liberal "friend" of mine likes to point that out each time the discussion turns to the election and I get the sense he is clinging to that like a lifeline to sanity.
And, sadly, he and Walter Williams may just have a point. With 47% of the people on some form or another of government support, and with Obama desperately trying to increase that number every day, it's clear what Obama's strategy is. Get people hooked on federal dough, pay off the reliably leftist communities, suppress any and all attempts to rein in voter fraud, and hope that the numbers add up sufficiently to squeak by.
And it just may work.
The thing is, like him or not, nobody is going to accuse Mitt of being stupid, so he knows that, too. I can't believe that Mitt is sleepwalking through this the way McLame did. He has a plan. He's working a plan. Whether it will be an effective plan...
Time will tell.
