As you know, I watch so you don’t have to, so on last Sunday’s show, we heard a sound bite from Chris Matthews’ silly syndicated show, in which Howard Fineman and Chrissy agreed: if the subject is the economy, it’s bad for the One. I guess that Team Obama didn’t see Chris’ show or hear ours. After seeing that the gay marriage gambit backfired, they decided to change the subject, and talk about–wait for it–jobs. Being democrats, and therefore, not known for original ideas they recycled some ads from the late Senator Ted Kennedy’s 1994 campaign against Mitt Romney. Actually, I’m being a tad harsh, since when you consider that they spend most of their time trying to force feed us putrid flesh from the rotting corpse of Karl Marx, 1994 seems bright, spanking fresh and new! Or it would if in fact the stuff from 1994 didn’t come from that afore-mentioned rotting corpse.
On Monday, they rolled out a misleading, demagogic ad featuring another collection of victims, former employees of GS Industries, a Kansas City steel plant. The ad uses the sort of reasoned, logical argument we’ve learned to expect from democrats. For example, one former steel worker says “They made as much money off it as they could and they closed it down, they filed for bankruptcy, without any concern for the families or the communities,” says Joe Soptic, a former steelworker. “It was like watching an old friend bleed to death.” They also refer to Romney as a “vampire,” which is interesting since the former Massachusetts governor said he doesn’t know any vampires.
Even the WaPo says the ad “shades the truth,” and gives it “One Pinnochio.” No doubt this rating has something to do with the fact that in 2001, eight years after Bain acquired GS, when the plant filed for bankruptcy, Mitt Romney was no longer actively involved in managing Bain. Translation: it’s typical liberal deception. No matter, Obama’s apparatchiks are trying to defend it. Former John Kerry operative/ditz Stephanie Cutter was on the case. You remember Stephanie Cutter, don’t you? She was right in the middle of that really cringe-inducing episode in October 2004, involving the late Christopher Reeve. Kerry claimed to have had a death bed conversation with the revered actor, in which Reeve supposedly thanked Lurch for raising the issue on stem cell research in the most recent presidential debate. Like the Kerry campaign, Obama’s operation also has that “Sixth Sense.” They not only see dead people. They speak for them, most recently for the alleged victim of Mitt Romney’s high school bullying, a previous exploding cigar.
The Romney campaign’s response was swift and effective.
The Chicago boys looked like geniuses in 2008 when they ran unopposed with the slobbering Lame Stream Media propagandizing non-stop. Now they look like what they really are: a bunch of doofuses loading up the One’s TelePrompTer with threadbare clichès that don’t pass the laugh test. You guys want to talk about jobs and the economy? As that great democrat John Kerry would say “Bring it on.”
