On this morning’s talking head shows, the consensus was clear. Mitt Romney’s thrilling choice of Rep. Paul Ryan has energized the conservative base, but given Barack Obama’s lawless, radical record, that hardly seems necessary, so why do it. As usual, as long as there are clueless Lame Stream Media geniuses incapable of seeing what’s going on right before their eyes, my work is never done. Paul Ryan’s selection demonstrates that Mitt Romney is determined to run a serious campaign because Paul Ryan is a serious person. In many ways, he is the anti-Obama, not a thin-skinned, narcissistic, TelePrompTer-dependent empty suit irresistible to voters short on information and long on bobby soxer crushes, but a thoughtful, scary-smart policy analyst who can make the case for limited government and free enterprise with coherence and common sense. But are campaigns really about educating the voters? Is that the way to win?
We can only hope that this selection will transform this campaign from being about silly non-issues like 20-year old tax returns, or whether Mitt Romney hates dogs and gives women cancer. Speaking of that desperate ad, after sleazy campaign operative Stephanie Cutter was exposed as a bare-faced liar who claimed to know nothing about Joe Soptic’s sad story until tape surfaced proving otherwise, she abruptly cancelled her Sunday show appearance on ABC. Apparently, Stephanie, well-known for that cringe-inducing claim that Christopher Reeve endorsed Kerry-Edwards on his death bed, is hiding under her desk. And all this time I didn’t think it was possible to embarrass this bunch!
That left The Combover, David Axelrod to present the predictable and laughable position that the cancer ad never said Mitt Romney was responsible for that poor woman’s death, and besides, the Romney campaign is lying about Barack Obama’s gutting welfare reform. The Obama campaign shouldn’t worry about that welfare reform accusation. How could anyone believe that a hard-wired leftist like Barack Obama would want to eliminate the work requirement from welfare? Sure, he did oppose it back in 1996, and yes, his policies have created millions more dependent on government than when he took office. In fact, some might say that assuming a socialist like Barack Obama would want to reduce the welfare roles is like putting Jerry Sandusky in charge of a home for troubled boys and expecting a good result. Still, how unfair is it for Mitt Romney to point that out?
Michael Bloomberg and his fellow freedom hating, gun grabbering mayors are at it again. You are not going to believe what one of them said about an armed citizen who defended her store against a invasion of rampaging robbers.
What if Ryan’s selection isn’t the answer, and Barack Obama, what can we expect in a second Obama term? Our guest, Brenda Elliott, co-author of Fool Me Twice: Obama’s Shocking Plans for the Next Four Years Exposed, will reveal what her research reveals about what Mr. “You Didn’t Build That” has in store for us when he’s freed from concerns about being re-elected.
