So, conservatives are once again asked to check their intelligence at the door when they listen to a Romney campaign speech. The new theme for the Romney camp is that President Obama is a nice guy, but that he`s a bad President…really?
Just a few weeks ago the Obama camp accused Romney of tax fraud—was that nice? Romney was accused by the President of lying about his work at Bain Capital—was that nice? Then there was that Obama PAC ad that, for all intents and purposes, accused Romney of murdering Joe Soptic`s wife—was that nice? And what about the fact that gasoline has went up forty cents in the last four weeks and Obama won`t let anyone drill–is that nice? How about your power bill and the fact that it is 30% higher than it was 2 years ago—is that nice? Obama is on record stating that your electric bills would “necessarily go up.” Once again—is that nice? And finally, but certainly not completely, what about Obama`s 2008 threat to bankrupt the coal industry—was that nice?
Joblessness is rampant and anyone who has a brain and is willing to be intellectually honest knows the unemployment rate is much higher than the figures show. In spite of these facts Obama, the Democrats, and the left can only blame Bush and tell us they need for more years and another 4 trillion—is that nice? This is not high school folks—this is a fight for the future of America. Politics is not like the high school class president vote—I don`t care if they are nice!
This is not about Romney or Obama—it`s about you and your children. The Republican Party is full of mushy middle of the road cowards who are best at losing elections not winning. They forget that the Tea Party handed them the House in 2010—they, the Republican Party, did not do it!
Obama is a cold and calculating campaigner, just ask Jack Ryan who ran against Obama for the Senate in 2004. Obama made public the man`s marital records and crushed him in the polls. No, Mr. Romney, Obama is not a nice guy.
Obama stood at the podium five days before winning the election in 2008 and told us to get ready to “fundamentally transform America.” What did he mean by that? Logic dictates that someone vet this guy for once and ask him what he meant. Did he mean, as most conservative believe, that he would transform America into a socialist state? It is certainly not out of the question when you look at his actions rather than his words.
And why does the Romney camp decide to play patty-cakes all of a sudden? Well, the answer is quite simple–because the polls tell them to, and who runs the polls—media pundits for the most part.
Romney was “mean spirited” last week right? Are we supposed to all of a sudden forget that? Shall we, like most Republicans, stick our proverbial fingers in the political wind and follow the leader? The American people are starved to death for real leaders! They don`t even care what party the person is from, they just want a leader who says what he means and means what he says, and, that plans to put America back to work.
America cannot go back to work until the private sector is growing again—not the government. Under Obama, government jobs that would have already been dissolved were shored up with stimulus money. This was purposeful because he desperately needed their votes. This is the same reason Obama pushed for the GM bailout—he needed union members to owe him loyalty. Obama trampled on the law and, to GM investors surprise, made sure the unions got their retirement money and buyouts before investors were paid a dime—was that nice?
The Republicans agreed to extend unemployment benefits because they were afraid of the media reports if they voted no—this too helped Obama because it kept Americans from feeling the real pain of the economy. If they had not done this people would be marching on Washington with pitch forks by now.
No, Mr. Romney, President Obama is not a nice guy. For a nice change, how about we, the voters, get some intellectual honesty from the Republican Party for once. How about some back bone from the Republican Party for once? It would be nice to see the Republican Party and Romney having the nerve to call “a spade a spade” for once.
