Over the past several weeks the Obama campaign, if full desperation mode, has been leveling all sorts of baseless accusations at Mitt Romney. Team Obama is also demanding that Romney release all manner of documents; from tax returns to documentation from his days at Bain Capital.
If I were advising Governor Romney I would answer these demands quite simply: I’ll show my records when President Obama shows the American people his.
As we all know, President Obama has spent untold millions of dollars to keep his records hidden from the public. You would think one of our so called journalists would ask the simple question: why?
The reason for these desperate, baseless attacks by the Obama campaign are quite simple – he cannot run on his record. Real unemployment is still north of 20-percent, the housing market continues to plummet and the economy in general is in a shambles.
The president’s woes don’t stop here. Nearly every despot in the world is rattling their sabers at the eunuch-in-chief knowing full well there is little Obama can do to them. Syria is openly thumbing their nose at the president with the full support of China, Russia and Iran. The president knows he cannot do a thing because he needs the Chinese to continue buying our debt to support all his socialist spending programs.
So with the very real prospect of a one term presidency becoming a reality; what’s a Marxist community organizer to do? Pull out the liberal bible Rules for Radicals.
Alinsky wrote the Democrat’s playbook and in it he teaches that you must pick a topic and polarize it. Since the American media has become little more than a left-wing propaganda machine, Obama knows his baseless allegations will never be challenged by the mainstream media. That’s why the left wants to get rid of talk radio and regulate the blogosphere but that’s another post.
Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your perspective) for the president, distrust in the media is at an all time high. The American people are now questioning the media and searching for alternate media outlets.
Romney just needs to continue to take his message to the people. Keep his message about solutions to the litany of disasters that Obama has wreaked upon America. Most of all, Romney needs to be honest because that is the one thing that President Obama cannot be.
