“So to repeat, this is not a distraction. This is what this campaign is going to be about.” – Barack Obama talking about his campaign strategy targeting Mitt Romney’s work as a turnaround capitalist at the investment firm Bain Capital.
This quote shows once again that Obama is going to run a largely negative campaign. But what this really shows is that Obama has no positive news for the American people.
Yet Democrats and the Media Left have been telling us for years now that nobody wants negativity. This of course was simply intended to muzzle Republicans and conservatives who wish to criticize Obama and the Democrats. Meanwhile a vicious attack-dog Democrat like black US congresswoman Maxine Waters calls Republicans (white people) “demons”.
Romney is wisely going after Obama every day using both a positive strategy about his own abilities and vision, and a negative attack strategy on Obama’s failures. This is a winning strategy. Romney is emulating Ronald Reagan’s strategy against Jimmy Carter.
Obama is headed for disaster with his Bain-heavy attack campaign. Because it means that he is tacking to the angry left and not to the political center where it is said over and over that campaigns are decided.
Yet Obama already has the left sewed up. So what this really shows is that Obama is truly a radical at heart. And, more significantly, that he is very likely throwing in the towel on his re-election. More and more people are saying that Romney is going to win in November.
Nikitas3.com believes that Obama can see the numbers and has already given up psychologically on his re-election. The only thing yet to be revealed is how many Democrats he drags down with him. And it could be the whole party across the entire nation from the federal level down to the state and local level, as happened in the November 2010 election.
This could be another major disaster for Obama and for his party. Even nervous Democrats are calling his attacks on Bain “nauseating” and “crap” (Newark, New Jersey mayor Cory Booker) and “disappointing” (former Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell).
Booker and Rendell are trying to warn Obama that he is taking the Democrat party over a cliff. And don’t think that Democrats across the nation are not all thinking the same thing and are not in a full-blown panic. Because they have seen the polls like the one that showed more than 70% of Americans think that the nation is on the Wrong Track.
With these types of numbers Obama cannot win. And it is important to remember that since Obama was inaugurated that just about every possible election that could go Republican has. Even Obama’s own former US Senate seat went to Republican Mark Kirk in November 2010, while Republican Scott Brown in January 2010 won the Massachusetts US Senate seat occupied by the Kennedy family for decades.
Democrats see this and now they are shuddering every time there is an election. Look at what happened in West Virginia recently. The Christian Science Monitor reported on csmonitor.com:
In an embarrassment to President Obama, Federal Inmate No. 11593-051 – otherwise known as Keith Judd – won 10 counties and 41 percent of the vote in West Virginia’s Democratic presidential primary Tuesday (May 8).
Mr. Judd is incarcerated at the Federal Correctional Institution in Texarkana, Texas where he is serving a 210-month sentence for extortion, according to The Charleston (W.Va.) Gazette. Judd had paid the $2,500 filing fee and submitted a notarized “certificate of announcement” to appear on the ballot.
Wow. Kaboom. This is for real. A federal inmate won 10 counties over Obama in West Virginia in a Democrat primary. If this type of thing had happened to a Republican in a Republican primary the Media Left would declare that Republican positively, utterly unelectable. But they are trying to bury this story and are giving Obama every benefit of every doubt despite the increasingly negative and desperate tone of his campaign.
Meanwhile on May 22 John Wolfe, an unknown Tennessee lawyer on the Democrat presidential primary ballot in Arkansas, also won 41% of the vote against Obama…
This is a double disaster for Obama. Rest assured that the Democrats are in full meltdown mode, which the Media Left are dutifully covering up.
Indeed with this type of news coming out every day and with the Obama campaign only focusing on attacking “the rich” and offering no compelling narrative for Obama’s re-election, then Romney will win handily.
But Obama has stuck to his class warfare strategy religiously. Because he has nothing else to say and he is at heart a radical. Listen to this excerpt about free-market capitalism from Obama’s speech on December 6, 2011 at Osawatomie, Kansas:
“It’s a simple theory – one that speaks to our rugged individualism and healthy skepticism of too much government. It fits well on a bumper sticker. Here’s the problem: It doesn’t work. It’s never worked. It didn’t work when it was tried in the decade before the Great Depression. It’s not what led to the incredible post-war boom of the 50s and 60s. And it didn’t work when we tried it during the last decade.”
This is amazing. Obama is essentially trashing our history, saying that our nation has never functioned, that we have never served as the economic engine of the globe, saved liberty over and over through our military might, provided massive assistance to poor nations, served as a beacon of hope for two centuries of immigrants, or developed and given to the world for free every single technology that powers the global economy today.
Indeed Obama only sees a negative in America and in capitalism while he himself was nothing but a community organizer who created no wealth but only undermined wealth and job creation with his radical ideas and activities.
Obama will be a one-term president and he knows it. And he probably does not really care. First, his wife hates the White House. Second, he has gotten a national health insurance plan through and further socialized the economy. And third, he now is going to cash in big in his post presidency.
Then after the Democrats are routed Hillary Clinton and her husband will swoop down to pick up the Democrat party’s pieces for 2016. And Hillary’s success will depend on how well Romney does in fixing this very broken nation.
