A rich guy recently said he would put out ads rehashing the Obama, Reverend White thing from 2008.
This was disavowed quickly but the point was made and it was free thanks to the media that covered it.
The disavowal of course was bullshit. Republican spinmeisters go out of their way to tailor the message so it appeals to bigots of all types. And it did serve another purpose for Romney and the boys. Their disavowal gives them a talking point deluded fools like Silverfiddle, Dmarks and my closet liberal friend Will Hart can use to show Romney isn't a bigot or panderer to them.
One of the old tricks in campaigning is to leak something negative and then get the candidate to disavow it. This is always accompanied by a call for being civil and discussing issues. It's difficult to fight this without looking like a whiner so the instigator gets a bunch of free press and the negative crap gets free play also.
While David Axlerod is a capable campaign manager this situation is best left to me.
David, the key to this election is not independents. For the most part independents are full of shit about their independence. They lean one way or the other and their vote is predictable after a few simple poll questions.
The key to a landslide for Obama is convincing the bigots that Obama is tougher on minorities than Romney will be. And that should be easy.
Somali pirates are black. Bigots hate Blacks. President Obama ordered the killing of black pirates. Romney never had any black guys killed. Bigots can trust Obama to kill Blacks more than they can trust Romney.
Bigots don;t like Arabs either. Obama is having Arabs killed right and left by drones. He had Navy Seals kill the evil Arab Osama Bin laden. Bigots can believe Obama sufficiently hates Arabs and will continue to have them killed. Mitt Romney never had an Arab killed either.
The real kicker here is Jews. The right puts on this big show about loving Israel but they still don't like Jews. No Jew will ever tell a bigot what to do. Netanyahu won't tell President Obama what to do. Mitt Romney used leverage (borrowing) to finance takeovers of companies that employed hard working white American Christians and shut them down. Probably borrowed that money to put hard working white American Christians from Jewish bankers. Snd Romney is a Mormon and everyone knows that's a cult cause Jimmy Swaggert said so. And they don't drink. We all wanted to have a beer with George Bush. But that sissy, Jew loving, Black and Arab coddling Mormon Mitt Romney won't have a beer with us. Screw him! Vote for a real American that loves what we love and hates what we hate. That guy is Barry Obama.
Glad to help out Mr. Axlerod.
