Obama Campaign Goes Racist, Anti-Semitic
Townhall.com ^ | August 15, 2012 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 08/15/2012 4:38:25 AM PDT by Kaslin

Mitt Romney's selection of Paul Ryan as his running mate has utterly unhinged the Obama campaign. Last week they were happily jabbering about Romney's record at Bain Capital, implying that he had killed a man's wife, stating that he was a tax cheat and blaming him for outsourcing jobs. This week they're stuck defending Barack Obama's $700 billion cuts to Medicare and spending addiction.

That leaves the Democrats with one solution: get ugly.

Joe Biden led off the festivities in Virginia this week, where he informed the population of 49-percent-black Danville that "he said in the first 100 days, he's going to let the big banks once again write their own rules -- unchain Wall Street. They gonna put y'all back in chains." That last line is a direct transcription -- Biden lapsed into a heavy southern accent, clearly making a slavery reference. According to the Obama campaign, then, Romney's Wall Street plans are the same as placing Americans in chains. If that isn't insulting to black Americans, nothing will be.

But the Obama campaign wasn't done. The same day Biden unleashed his inner race-baiter, the Obama campaign's Julianna Smoot send out a mass email accusing Ryan of "making a pilgrimage" to Las Vegas to "kiss the ring" of Jewish mega donor Sheldon Adelson. This was an obvious attempt to drive a wedge between Ryan and blue-collar Catholics by invoking anti-Semitic imagery; the implication is that Ryan, instead of making a pilgrimage to Rome to kiss the ring of the Pope, was heading to Vegas to kiss the ring of a wealthy Jew. Ryan, the email implied, was a Judas willing to sacrifice religion for money in the Sodom and Gomorrah of Vegas.

This isn't just nasty campaigning. It's vile campaigning.

It wasn't surprising, of course -- not after the Obama campaign seemingly worked hand-in-glove with a super PAC to release an ad accusing Romney of murdering Joe Soptic's wife of cancer after Bain Capital fired Soptic and Soptic lost his health insurance. It wasn't surprising after the vulgarities that seem to spout daily from the Obama headquarters; their emails suggest that they must win the "damn" election and their staffers call Obamacare opponents "mother---ers." No hope and change to be found here -- just vulgarity and racism.

Just because the Obama campaign is running a disgusting campaign doesn't mean it will hurt them. Negative campaigns remain extraordinarily effective. But it won't work against the revitalized Romney-Ryan ticket. Ryan is simply too likeable -- 50 percent of Americans like him, as opposed to 32 percent who don't -- and he is highly intelligent and scrupulously honest. That means he'll be tough to categorize with the left's three favorite anti-conservative insults: stupid (Palin), corrupt (Nixon) and mean (Bush). Ryan isn't extreme; he's praised by people like ... Barack Obama and Erskine Bowles.

The question that remains for the American public is whether they can be polarized by the divide-and-conquer rhetoric of the Obama campaign. If Obama can't convince Americans that Romney-Ryan will destroy America, he'll have to destroy America himself to ensure re-election by separating Americans by race, sexuality and religion. That's precisely what he's doing.

Obama's vile, Chicago-way politics will play well with his hard core base...but they weren't going anywhere.

OTOH, this will certainly drive away independents who, in 2008, refused to see the truth about Obama reptilian nature.

Keep poking at the cage, Romney and Ryan... I've been waiting for pResident Barack Hussein Mountain Dew Obama Comacho to have a “Greg Stillson” moment for over three and a half years. This vile and ignorant socialist wannabe has been carefully controlled by handlers with teleprompters, scripted interviews, and “media” propogandists who bend over backward to cover for the POS, but with his power slipping away it looks like his parasitic aides and advisers are too busy looking for their next host than to concern themselves with controlling the moron's increasingly nonsensical and snarky statements.

"Obama campaign's Julianna Smoot send out a mass email accusing Ryan of "making a pilgrimage" to Las Vegas to "kiss the ring" of Jewish mega donor Sheldon Adelson."

I thought it was very odd last night on "Fox News Special Report", that the reporter chose to mention the name of the owner of the hotel where Ryan was visiting. Before his, I had no clue who Sheldon Adelson was.

What's surprising. is that Fox News would repeat this talking point, though subtly. I forget the name of the reporter, but he obviously got the memo.

...”Ryan is simply too likeable — 50 percent of Americans like him, as opposed to 32 percent who don’t — and he is highly intelligent and scrupulously honest.”...

But wait, didn’t we read that Ryan went to a “third-rate” university? That was one of the nasty things I came across last weekend in the idiotic New York Magazine piece. The “third-rate” university is Miami of Ohio. Perhaps the RR team could use that little denigraton to their benefit in the state of Ohio. And, it amuses me no end to compare Ryan to Obama and all the Ivy League tools in his “Administration”.

Third rate?: “Miami University is one of four schools that have have graduated both a U.S. President and a Super Bowl winning quarterback” from the Wiki brief on its history.

The “third-rate” university is Miami of Ohio.

It's called "Miami University", it's first-rate, and it was a university when that jumped-up newcomer in Florida was a swamp.

This week they're stuck defending Barack Obama's $700 billion cuts to Medicare and spending addiction.

Ryan's plan for saving Medicare was assumed by nearly all in the media to be his biggest vulnerability. Is it just me, or haven't we already won this issue?

Before this week, I would wager that a majority of Americans, a majority of seniors even, weren't aware that Ryan's plan would have zero effect on those 55 and older, who are on Medicare.

Medicare reform has gone from loser to winner for Republicans in one week, because of Paul Ryan. I think there are more shoes to drop for Democrats as they move from Medicare to other parts of the Ryan budget plan.

Pass the popcorn.

The racist KKK rat party also targeted the Koch Brothers because of their Jewish ethnicity to push the idea the rich wallstreet Jews are behind the TEA Party.

"Occupy Wall Street" is the commie rat party brownshirt army preparing for the American Krystalnacht.

Good. It’s gonna get better, too. I think someone just enlightened me about why Romney. He does have something none of the other candidates had: the SLC olympics. Remember 0 failing to get the olympics for Chicago? 0bama’s whole motivation in life is envy. “Even-ing the score”. Throw in Paul Ryan for a little extra kick. Heh. Too bad nobody can sell tickets.

Apparently there are many on this site who cannot see or couldn't care less about Obama's evilness, because in their all consuming hatred of Romney, they're perfectly willing to see Obama reelected...

You sure missed the boat. Your boy Romney doesn't yet have the nomination and already the Obama death squads are on the loose ~ today trying to shoot up the Family Research Council.

It's only a matter of time and we'll find out where the others are going to pop up.

We need a candidate willing to push back against the forces of darkness. A candidate whose always looked for a way to make a nickel out of such encounters probably isn't our best bet.

When obama got elected I felt the same way I felt n 1976 when Carter got elected. How in the hell did this happen?

In 1976 my husband was stationed at Fort Riley Kansas, and I worked with someone who was from GA. She told us all that Carter was the worst governor in the history of Georgia

They are willing to see him reelected not just because of their hatred of Governor Romney but also because they are blind and do not see the damage that arrogant pos occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave has already done and will do if God forbid he is reelected

Carter got elected because the GOP-e chose the candidate.

We had a Conservative ready to run that year but they wouldn't have it ~ they preferred to lose. The same thing happened in 2008 when the GOP-e selected the candidate. We had Conservatives ready to run, but they wouldn't have it.

Now we have another candidate selected by the GOP-e, and we still have a stable full of capable Conservatives ready to run.

There's this historic pattern you see ~ the GOP-e picks someone to go out to lose against the Democrat, then complains that the misbehavior of Conservatives was the cause of the defeat.

Which means, of course, that you and Kaslin and others who've gone over to the dark side ~ to Romney ~ to do the bidding of the GOP-e have SOLD OUT AMERICA AGAIN!

I haven’t gone to the dark side. I’ve never said I’ll vote for romney. I held my nose and voted for Ford. I did it again and voted for mccain. I can’t do it again.

I’ve been saying “third party” for years. If a third party had been formed in 2000 it would be a powerful force today. And the gop-ers always come on and say “Vote with us to change the party from the inside.” I say, “Why don’t you vote with US for a change.”

Finally, for those who say “that would give the democrats a majority in the house”. I say not if the republicans vote with the real conservatives.

It was sickening working with democrats in 1976. They thought Carter was the best thing since sliced bread. Four years later it was hard to find anyone who would admit they voted for him. He almost destroyed this country. Now obama is about to pull it off.

I’ve been here since Bill Clinton was in office. Until this Romney hatred started, I used to enjoy it. I remember Ross Perot, and believe a vote for a third party, or a refusal to vote because of hatred for Romney, is the equivalent of a vote for Obama.

Today a vote for a third party or a vote NOT for Romney is definitely a vote for obama. What I said was a third party should have been formed years ago. I believe had one been formed in 2008 it would have some sway today. But it keeps being put off and real conservatives keep getting told by the GOP to go to hell and vote for the candidate THEY choose.

There has to come a time when real conservatives stand up and say “NO MORE!” When do you propose that time to be?

As for how long you’ve been here, you said you don’t like FR anymore so I’m asking “why are you here?”
