The mud from Chicago is flying fast and deep. Anybody who thought that the 2012 Presidential Election would be some intellectual debate on real issues is sadly mistaken. The Barack Obama campaign has taken the Low-Road early as an assistant campaign manager, Stephanie Cutter, tosses about allegations of Mitt Romney being a possible felon. Forget that her charges have been dismissed by fact-checking news agencies, including the Washington Post. To this end, the Romney campaign raises the issue of Obama being a serial liar and untrustworthy to reside in the White House. Even Obama charges about Romney outsourcing jobs is nothing compared to his own. Ralph Lauren, an Obama supporter, outsourced the jobs of making the Team USA uniforms to China. How far off are such charges?
Not very far, indeed. Obama has been spewing a steady stream of lies ever since taking office. Or I should say, ever since he began his political career, really! There are questions as to whether or not he even wrote his own autobiographies. Obama lied about how his stimulus program would stem unemployment and fix the economy. He lied about his health care plan. Obama has been lying regularly about nearly every issue for the past three and a half years. This guy would not know the truth if he stubbed his big toe on it!
Mitt Romney has thus far taken the high road, or perhaps I should say the ′Null Road′? His campaign has been on cruise control, coasting along in neutral for the past couple of months. He′s giving Claude Raines a run for the title of ′The Invisible Man.′ While saying very little about anything, the Romney campaign has already decided to take off the table many of the character issues concerning Obama. Such as past associations with Bill Ayers or Jeremiah Wright. Mitt is too polite, or too wimpy, to come right out and bash Obama as being a Socialist. Up until this week, Romney has even acknowledged that Obama is a ′nice guy′. But now that may be changing as the Romney campaign is demanding an apology from the Obama campaign for the lies they are telling about Mitt.
With polls showing the race incredibly tight this far out from the conventions, is it any wonder that the Barack Obama campaign is getting so desperate? They cannot promote their candidate for any successes. The Obama agenda has been a complete failure. His administration has demonstrated nothing but sheer amateurism. Thus, there is nothing left to do but go negative on Mitt Romney. Since Romney is about as squeaky clean as a one can get, Obama must conjure up lies about Romney. The remarks by Stephanie Cutter this week shows just how desperate, and just how far, Obama the liar is prepared to go in mud slinging. Too bad Obama does not vent about his own supporters, like Ralph Lauen, who outsourced the jobs of making the Team USA Olympic uniforms to China.
