As the Three Stooges of Campaign 2012, Axelrod, Plouffe and Messina, attempt to cobble together the semblance of a credible presidential campaign from risible allegations suggesting that Mitt Romney is responsible for any health problem that might have afflicted the spouse of anyone who ever worked for a company in which Bain Capital invested and Joe Biden’s bad, racially-charged stand-up, now comes their latest hard-hitting punch at their GOP opponent:
Obama campaign manager Jim Messina said the president’s camp would seek no further disclosures if Romney would release five years of his individual tax returns. The Romney campaign, which often says there will be no end to Democrats’ demands for tax records, rejected the offer.
Oh, OK, of course! I can’t imagine the Romney campaign not jumping all over that offer! In exchange for giving Obama and his vacuous, ineffective apparatchiks like national laughingstock Stephanie “Christopher Reeve Endorsed Kerry on His Deathbed But I’m the Only One Who Heard it” Cutter, Debbie “Deer in the Headlights” Wasserman Schultz and Ben “Face You’d Like to Slap” LaBolt more material for their distract, deceive and demonize strategy, they’ll stop asking for more material. Who could resist that deal! What’s next? Perhaps an offer to stop threatening to beat him up for his lunch money? Can this pathetic bunch possibly not realize how ridiculous they sound, and how obvious it is that they are desperate to turn this presidential race into a personality contest instead of a substantive debate about important issues?
Note to the Obama campaign: Mitt Romney didn’t get both a law degree and MBA from Harvard simultaneously, then go on to build a personal fortune by being a complete moron. Welcome to the NFL, Guys. For the first time in your lives, Wonder Boy has some actual competition, and he’s going to have to defend his record of failure, incompetence and lack of leadership, as well as his vision of wealth redistribution v. Mitt’s vision of wealth creation. That’s what we’re going to talk about, the future of this country, not Mr. Romney’s past tax returns.
