OK, it’s no secret that I’m mightily disappointed in brother Barack’s performance in office. And that’s allowing for the fact that I expect to be disappointed by politicians – I’m not stupid. Neither is it a secret that I wish mightily there was a better candidate (with a chance in hell of winning) than either Obama or Willard.
Part of the disappointment has been watching the administration seemingly on their back foot under the GOP assault for the last 3+ years. This latest ad though, which is being shown here in Colorado and, I understand, several “swing” states, is pretty refreshing to see.
For those of us who have been advocating throwing the ball right at their pointy little heads for three years and more (and then while they’re blustering and whining about it, and they are, right now, in a big way – do it again), this is just plain enjoyable. Karl Rove himself couldn’t have done better.
Mitt Romney is not the solution. (pause, then fade in the next line …)
He’s the problem.
Not bad. Not bad at all.
I wish lefty would show up over here – he’s gotta be loving this one.
One other thing. They keep this up and Romney just might come unglued — he’s wound so tight now with having to keep track of his many and varied positions on just about everything that he’s stiff and brittle. My sense is he’s vulnerable to being pushed into losing his cool, and revealing just what a nasty piece of work the real, unzipped Mittens really is.
Case in point, to show how seriously uncomfortable this all is for him. From a CBS interview on Friday;
JAN CRAWFORD: Governor Romney, the Obama campaign is saying that you either committed a felony by lying to the SEC or you are lying to the American people about when you left Bain capital. What do you say to that?
GOV. MITT ROMNEY: Well, I think this kind of statement from the Obama team is really shocking, it’s, it’s ridiculous, and it’s beneath the dignity of the presidency. Look we just had a report come out that millions of Americans remain unemployed.
He’s on the hook, and wriggling.
