Skip to comments.Refusing to Apologize, Obama Renews Attacks on Romney’s Business Record (Mitt advisors = Amateurs)
Posted on 07/14/2012 11:54:57 AM PDT by jimbo123
President Obama refused to apologize to Mitt Romney on Saturday, barnstorming through this swing state as his aides continued their attacks by releasing a new television ad that mockingly shows Mr. Romney singing America the Beautiful.
Mr. Obama, speaking to a drenched crowd during a downpour in this Richmond suburb, accused Mr. Romney of investing in companies that have been called pioneers in outsourcing. He ignored the demands for an apology about the campaigns tone that Mr. Romney had called for in interviews on Friday.

Well Romney can campaign on Obama and his party being the cause of outsourcing overseas through high union labor costs and high corporate tax rates. The dems are almost solely responsible and Obama is opening himself to get blasted on this subject. Obama is lobbing softballs.
Not a fan of Romney, but he at least defends himself which is more than I can say about McCain, Bush #1, and old Bob Dole.
Obamacare needs reversing.
The economy needs to have an emphasis on the private sector and everything public sector needs to become anemic.
That is where we are.
There is no perfect candidate.
Wish we had a well spoken strong conservative representing Republicans though.
Obama’s a dirtball.
I disagree...they knew he wouldn’t apologize...they actually welcome the attacks, because if Obama has to go negative, his likeability rating will plummet...and that is the only positive zero has right now.
By the way...new Rovian ad released in Virginia, saw it today for the first time, and it explicitly calls Obama a liar...he lied when he was against Clinton, lied about McCain and is lying again-—the ad states it matter of factly and its down right brutal...The ad uses the word “liar” and has a picture of Obama with the word across his chest. Plenty of testosterone.
If he was ONLY a dirtball.
Gee...maybe we should have nominated a conservative.
” (Mitt advisors = Amateurs) “
Bear in mind that after November, those ‘amateurs’ will be referred to as “The Romney Administration” —
I would call Obama a liar and focus on his campaign/obamacare lies and never miss an oppurtunity to say barack Hussein OBAMA
Romney’s team of Ken Mehlman/Bush ex-RNC slimeballs are intentionally sabotaging his campaign to clear the GOP deck for Jeb Bush in 2016. The fix is in.
A great set of ads would be “Pay to Play, the Chicago Way.” One could be a rolling list of donors and the related stimulus payoffs. Another with donors and the related clean energy failures. A third with donors and the Obamacare waivers.
Poor, poor Mr. RomneyCARE.
Always on the defense OR defending Team Obama.
If Mitt’s advisors think that campaigning like fags and calling Obama a liar and sending Mitt out on 20 TV stations asking Obama for for apologies is going to win the election for them, they are clueless.
The bisexual muslim and his Chicago cohorts are laughing at Team Romney’s ineptness.
here is my ad idea:
Show the Buddhas in Afgahastan.
Show them being blown up.
Show the riots in Egypt, then show Obama endorsing the overthrow of Mubarick. Then show the extreme Muslims talking about blowing up the pyramids. Them show the pyramids being blown up with Hillary and Obamas faces in the mushroom clouds.
This is all Nobama has left. His campaign will become more and more negative and pathetic. The American people have enough negativity in there lives right now. They’ll grow tired of this pimp and his campaign of scorched earth.
agree with you- lets wait and see...
ive been screaming for years the GOP fights like little girls dating to the start of GWBs second term...and while id love nothing more than to spit in obamas face the fact is Romneys campaign and the GOP has done a decent job responding to this BS the past few months; last week they ran ads calling obama an outright liar for claiming Romney outsourced jobs then ran ads showing obama as the outsourcer and chief...
lets see whats in store next week...
“...defending Team Obama.”
That sounds like you. Always attacking Romney, never saying anything bad about Obama. What, no childish pictures this thread?
Does that include Obama?
And Romney did get angry over what Democrat policies are doing to the working poor, something many other Republicans are missing, a real fire in the belly.
I think Mitt is waiting for Obama to spend money he doesn’t have....
These Bain attacks can be refuted easily....with money and ads...
Based on the GOP primiaries Mitt has the will to destroy people....I think he is waiting for Obama to show all his cards ...
It least I hope so....
I have no idea what Romney and his crew are doing, but the Occupy the White House scumbags of Obama are digging their own grave. I just hope Romney’s people are smart enough to take advantage of it.
Look, here’s the truth. All the recent polls with few exceptions show Obama with a slight lead over Romney. This is the same scam & spin the media dumped on the public with governor Scott Walker in the Wisconsin recall. Scott was being whipped until about three weeks before the recall. Then he slowly pulled ahead, until the last week or so, when the race was tightening up according to the polls of the liberal dirt bags. Of course, Walker beat his Democrat low life opponent by seven points, an easy win. Do not believe any poll that polls only registered voters!!!
Obama is using the same playbook FDR used to get reelected in 1936 with 17% unemployment. Romney’s people are running the same campaign that Alf Landon ran back then.
If Obama wants to double-down on an already failed tactic, more power to him. Let him spend his resources and political capital on a useless attack.
Kucinich: Obamas job czar expert at creating foreign jobs Posted on 08.30.11
Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) said Tuesday that its time for the head of the Presidents Council on Jobs and Competitiveness to resign or be fired because hes sending jobs to China.
In a press release last week, Kucinich noted that in his role as the CEO of General Electric, Obama job czar Jeffrey Immelt was sending advanced technology and U.S. jobs to China.
Jeffrey Immelt has a conflict of interest, the Ohio congressman said. He cannot ethically advise the President on how to create American jobs and promote American competiveness, while at the same time leading a company that is exporting American technology and, along with it, American jobs.
Kucinich told CNNs Ali Velshi Tuesday that it did not make sense for Immelt to continue working for the president.
He has expertise in job creation, but, unfortunately for the United States, seems to be creating jobs in other countries. One-fifth of the U.S. work force has been eliminated since that gentleman had taken the helm of GE, Kucinich explained.
If the White House doesnt have a jobs policy and they go to somebody who is not only moving his jobs out of the country, but also off-shoring profits so he is not paying a share of the taxes GE ought to be paying, look, the White House has to get a grip on its jobs policy.
Obama doesn’t apologise to Americans, he is better than us.
Now give him a dictator, a Muslim King, or any country that opposes America and he will bow to them and kiss their butts.
Oh the ads they could produce...
By the way...new Rovian ad released in Virginia, saw it today for the first time, and it explicitly calls Obama a liar...he lied when he was against Clinton, lied about McCain and is lying again-the ad states it matter of factly and its down right brutal...The ad uses the word liar and has a picture of Obama with the word across his chest. Plenty of testosterone.
Very good response. That’s what you need. Keep the message simple, memorable, and with an image that cause people to assess what else has he not told the truth on.
Sooner or later they will realize that he speaks in code on most occasions using technicalities to look like he’s credible.
E.G. I cut middle class taxes.
All it takes is $1 somewhere , and he can say he told the truth on that.
He knows that no will ask a detailed followup , or call him out on it.
Wake up. FDR got re-elected in 1936 with 17% unemployment and Obama is running a carbon copy of that campaign. And Mitt Romney is running a carbon copy of the campaign that Alf Landon ran against FDR back then.
I SURE HOPE A ROMNEY CAMPAIGN WORKER IS WATCHING:
Sentences you can use (no charge):
1. Why is Obama so interested in my finances? I’m sure that Americans would be interested in Obama’s relationship with convicted criminal Tony Rezko.
2. Why does Obama care so much about me? It’s not like I authorized the sale of AK-47’s to Mexican drug lords...
3. Obama’s saying I’m not being truthful about Bain? Why don’t you ask him about Solyndra? About George Kaiser? Bueller?
4. Obama’s only angry at me because I’m not a Marxist.
5. Why is Obama so interested in green technology? The only technology involved is the calculators that bankruptcy lawyers are using to get their cut of taxpayer dollars.
6. I’ve always been proud to know that Obama was a neighbor of the state I governed. Wait, he’s from Hawaii? His SSN says he’s from Connecticut though!
7. You know, I’ve always supported Obama’s mortgage aid. I mean, even our own President had a part of his mortgage paid when his political operatives bought a part of his garden.
8. I’m raising more money than Obama? Bull, he got $20 billion from BP!
9. It’s great Obama took the requirement that you have to work to be on welfare away. Now Obama can officially go on welfare.
10. Were they passing out flyers about the federal debt at Obama’s last speech? 20 people fainted.
You double-posted this. Why?
It’s telling that Obama would attack Romney for singing a pro-American song. Obama hates patriots.
If Willard wants to win, he needs to run the same type of campaign that Clinton ran against Bush and stop acting like a fag.
ABC's “This Week” - Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel; Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H.
NBC’s “Meet the Press” - Sens. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., and Jon Kyl, R-Ariz.; Ben Jealous, NAACP president; Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform; Ed Gillespie, adviser to Mitt Romney's presidential campaign.
CBS’ “Face the Nation” - Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis.; campaign surrogates; Stephanie Cutter, deputy manager of President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign; Kevin Madden, adviser to Romney's campaign.
CNN’s “State of the Union” - David Axelrod, senior Obama campaign adviser; Govs. Bob McDonnell, R-Va., and Deval Patrick; Gillespie.
“Fox News Sunday” - Govs. Rick Scott, R-Fla., and Terry Branstad, R-Iowa.
They are scum who will not tolerate the same tactics they allow against republicans.
But the GOP needs to remember Atwater was despised because he was effective.
If Lee Atwater hadn’t gotten sick, he would have stopped Bill Clinton from getting elected President. Lee is still missed.
The other night I had a nightmare about Obama being the devil. I woke up with a rapid heartbeat and had trouble falling back to sleep.
RIP Lee Atwater - we could use his skills now!
RIP Lee Atwater - we could use his skills now!
“That is where we are. There is no perfect candidate.”
Sadly, we’ve reached a state in this country where those who would restore liberty, shrink the size of government, restore America’s confidence, and incentivize economic activity stand little chance of being elected in this era of massive government dependency, a visciously biased media, and a dumbed down populace. That’s just the reality that’s come about as a result of years of the welfare state, government largesse and central planning.
I’m not enthusiastic about Romney...but it’s pretty clear by now that he’s the card we have to play. The stark choice before us is one of electing a new, less than perfect candidate for a president, or coronating a dictator who will surely destroy what’s left of America’s greatness.
It may be that Romney could actually do fairly well as president, especially in the economic area. It wouldn’t be hard to surpass expectations based on the disastrous performance of the current occupant of the White House. Job #1 is getting the usurper out of office. Romney can always be replaced if he fails to perform.

Indeed. They need to read the posts here at FR and learn, that is, if they want to defeat BHO.
At a time when CONSERVATIVES SHOULD BE EVERYWHERE,
little pussy Willard HIDES.
Will he be out discussing CONSERVATIVE ISSUES
I think not.
His wife has to defend him first.
Bain has to defend him first.
The Mormons have to defend him first.
Romney can just talk economy and allow Obama to hang himself. The poll numbers are not budging for Obama. He's stuck at the 45-47% mark. Not good for an incumbent who has just thrown the kitchen sink at his opponent.
