    The Obama campaign has shot themselves in the foot so often that they are having to resort to blowing an occasional leg off also. Their dilemma is that they tried slamming Romney’s time at Bain Capital but no one cared. That was their ace in the hole. Plan ‘B’, lying about Mitt’s time as Gov of MA, isn’t going to get any more traction than the Bain ads did, and they know it. Plan ‘C’, going after the Olympics, makes even less sense than the other two did. The story of how Romney saved the Olympics is too well-known for anyone to believe whatever lies the Obama campaign thugs will come up with.

    Fear? You bet–even though the emotion will be strongly denied by the opposition.

    Ha! What did I say about blowing a leg off? A few days ago, President Bill Clinton praised Romney’s work at Bain Capital. Now he’s claiming that Mitt’s plans for fixing the economy would be “calamitous for our country and the world”and that “the Republican Congress and their nominee for President, Governor Romney, have adopted Europe’s economic policies’.

    “Adopted Europe’s economic policies?” Romney has been preaching AGAINST a European style economy ever since the 2012 campaign began.

    Can these idiots get any more obvious? They need to get back on their meds. (Or maybe, off of them–which ever the case may be.)

    I think the Dems should be concerned now that Walker won the recall election in WI. They poured alot of money in there, but they still lost. I don’t know how the exit polls came out, but I have to think it was largely along party lines, but Walker may have won some additional votes of some Dems that understood that this recall election, while legally conducted, was conducted for the wrong reasons.

    Those pushing for the recall of Walker were trying to pre-empt the next gubernatorial (sp?) election by having an election in the middle of Walker’s term as a referendum on his policies, and not because of some impropriety or ethics violation. I think they overplayed their hand by having this recall election, and the voters responded rightfully by turning it down. A local media person noted that it was surprising that when Obama was in MN and IL the past weekend, he didn’t stop in nearby WI to lend support to the cause. Perhaps he understood it was a losing battle, or perhaps he understood that it was a misuse of the recall election provision in WI state law and wanted no part of it.

    While I understand the message, I think it was done too subtly for most Americans to understand it’s an ad against Obama and not for him if viewed only once. Here’s an ad idea I’ve always wanted to see:

    Show Romney fishing in the great outdoors. Then as he’s talking about Obama’s flip flops on the issues and broken campaign promises, he’s cooking his catch in a frying pan over an open flame. With smooth one-handed wrist action, he flips the fish in the pan over and over as he talks……

    Romney wakes up to breakfast in the great outdoors. Continuing on with the talking points, he constantly flips the pancake in the frying pan over and over……..

    This could be all one ad or two separate ads. If two separate ads, as Romney concludes by stating the consequences of voting for Obama, the fish or pancake falls into the fire.

    If done as one ad, it could end on fish in nets being hauled aboard while flip flopping wildly about. As Romney concludes with his vision for America, one fish frees itself and swims away….(or the net breaks and they all swim free).

    Rugged American outdoors man. Obama’s flip flops. Humorous. What a great way to convey several messages at once!

    I think more research has to be done on his membership in the highly secretive CHOOM GANG. I think the chaos our nation is experiencing is very akin to complete lack of leadership. Drugs will do that to a person.

    So yesterday, Obama says that the private sector is in good shape; a statement he later had to retract. But he goes on to say that it’s the public sector that needs help and he wants Congress to pass legislation to give more money to State and local governments; as if growing government will produce anything! Well excuse me, but I always thought that the size of government should be related to the growth of the economy. Where does he think this money is going to come from? Even leaders within his own party like former President Bill Clinton, Mayor Cory Booker and former Governor Ed Rendell have spoken against or contradicted the Obama campaign’s policies and tactics.

    With the gaffs this Administration continues to make and the poor economic news that continues to come out, we are witnessing the implosion of the Obama campaign. He so needs to go. Hopefully, enough of the American electorate sees that as well.

    Fear: What John Lauber felt when Mitt Romney held him down and forcefully cut his hair with a pair of scissors. Remember it’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye. This pantywaist country needs a bully like Willard “Mitt” Romney in the bully pulpit!
