The #1 Reason Mitt Romney Would Lose to Barack Obama: Nonstop Forced Errors Feeding Into the Occupy Wall Street Obama Campaign Strategy
This is truly an unacceptable “mistake” to make for someone who has no day job and who has spent the last eight years now running for the same elected office.
Today on Soledad O’Brien’s CNN
puppet talk show, Willard “Mittens” Romney(care) made more of the statements he’s becoming increasingly famous for — the ones where he essentially stands in front of the camera and willingly records video for David Axelrod to use in Barack Obama’s re-election campaign commercials.
No doubt, Romney supporters will send hatemail claiming “that’s taken out of context!” or “but, but, but…he clarified what he meant!” because Romney has a very aggressive phalanx of minions out there who desperately attempt to fabricate a new reality where Democrats don’t lift bits and pieces of speech and create devastatingly effective ads that take things out of context without additional clarification allowed.
In politics, you can’t state anything in a sentence in a way that someone can lift that one little bit out and use it against you — especially not in an election year where The Tolerant Left has no record of achievement to run on and is committed to the “Occupy & Persecute” class warfare strategy that’s begun in earnest with Occupy Wall Street and its chosen villain of the very fat cat, elitist, mega-wealthy archetype that Romney embodies.
Let’s put this in a much more relatable, real-world context and pretend you’re on a job interview to work in a business that’s located in a part of town where there’s been a lot of suspicious fires lately. During the interview, almost completely unprompted, you volunteer that you like having the ability to set fires and don’t much care for fire prevention efforts. After that you say a few things about how your focus, upon clarification, shows anyone willing to really listen to you that you are most certainly against burning buildings to the ground. You just have a habit of slipping in that you collect matchbooks from different places you go and you inherited a fine collection of lighters and that you love the smell of gasoline in the morning and, of course, it’s purely by coincidence those establishments you just happen to visit in the course of your day end up piles of ash so inexplicably.
Do you think you would get the job if you said things like this?
Do you — and please be honest here — think it’s really a smart idea for Republicans to nominate Romney to run against Obama in a year when the “Occupy & Persecute” strategy is to rev up a massive class warfare targeting people that Democrats will claim are responsible for the privations millions of Americans are suffering these economic times?
Almost every time Romney opens his mouth he comes across like someone going on about his platinum-plated lighter collection and his fascination with the elemental power of flames — in front of a huddled group of desperate people whose home just burned down.
Can you please explain why the Cocktail Party keeps saying this man is “electable”?
Is this one of those things where no one has a real plan, but they’re counting on saying the same thing enough times to wishcast what they want into reality?
UPDATE: I really enjoyed this piece by Jeff Emmanuel at Redstate about the colossal damage Romney did to himself for the general election today.
For some reason, Republicans have an incredibly hard time understanding that Democrats know how to take video of Republicans saying things like “I don’t care about the very poor” and use those sound bytes to defeat Republicans in elections.
When someone like Romney does something this stupid, the Cocktail Party GOP establishment won’t even admit it was a major mistake. Instead, they’ll say things like, “Everyone will forget about this tomorrow”, or “Nobody watches that CNN show”, or “that’s not what he really meant to say”.
Folks — a very large part of why Bill Clinton won the 1992 election was because George H.W. Bush looked at his watch like he was bored and didn’t want to be at one of the debates any longer. That was caught on film in the days before YouTube or computers and was replayed over and over again in the news so that millions of Americans resented Bush’s implication that he didn’t think it was worth his time to stand there and present his case for re-election to the American people.
And that was something Bush did without even speaking. When he DID open his mouth, he’d say strange, alien things about not really knowing how much bread costs or how amazed he was by the scanners in supermarkets.
When a Republican candidate presents himself to the American people in a way that makes him seem so ridiculously wealthy and out of touch that he can’t relate to regular people, that Republican is TOAST (whether or not he knows how much bread costs).
Mark this date on your calendar.
I honestly believe Mitt Romney just lost the general election today…in this interview with Soledad O’Brien. There is no recovery possible from this sound byte. It’s like how Rick Perry lost his chance at the nomination during that one debate where he couldn’t name the three departments of government he planned to eliminate if he was elected. As soon as it happened, it was clear Perry was Texas TOAST.
It took several weeks for that to sink in for him and the fools who ran his campaign (into the ground), but Perry lost the race in those 53 seconds.
Mitt Romney just handed Barack Obama a second term, in however many seconds he spent talking about the “very poor” to Soledad O’Brien.
If Republicans nominate this man anyway, then there better be absolute Hell to pay for everyone responsible for continuing to push him when the race was already lost on February 1st, 2012.
