Fifteen days left before November 6th and even the most ardent Obama supporter will admit that Governor Romney has a slight lead and the momentum (although smaller than Gallup’s margin). With the window for him to reverse the tide, there are rumors that the Campaign to Reelect the President (CREEP) is about to get really dirty with the help of the mainstream media and the barrister of bull-crap, Gloria Allred.
According to NRO Online CREEP is working with the mainstream media to label Romney a flip-flopper on China
NRO hears that the latest attempt by the President’s team to check Romney’s momentum will come via a years-old video in which Romney sounds more conciliatory toward the PRC. Romney, of course, will be portrayed as a flip-flopper. It will be another instance of “Romnesia.”
Our understanding is that the Obama campaign is working closely with media outlets to broadcast the video below, part of a 2007 talk Romney delivered in Pittsburgh.
In actuality Romney said the same thing in 2007 as he says now we need to ensure that China stops manipulating its currency to gain a competitive advantage and starts respecting intellectual property rights although his tone was a lot nicer back then
You know, I think it’s important first for the American people and our leadership to understand that China is not like the Soviet Union of old. The Soviet Union, Khrushchev in particular, wanted to bury us. China doesn’t want to bury us, they want to see us succeed and thrive so that we can buy more Chinese products and they’re a competitor economically. More power to ‘em, we know how to compete. We want to make sure that competition is fair and legal, and that they protect our intellectual property rights and that they have a monetary policy that’s fair, so we’ve got some challenges to make sure that the playing field is level with China, but we can compete, we can be successful with China, and I will reach out to them, I’ve already met with their leadership and will do so again if I’m lucky enough to be president. Making China a partner for stability in the world will be one of my highest priorities.
But CREEP and its friends in the mainstream media will point to the difference in tone and claim a flip-flop.
Last week Drudge predicted that Gloria Allred Ms. Allred, savior of the downtrodden “d-listers, plans an October surprise.
According to Jim Hoft the Gateway Pundit the surprise may be that when a Bishop of the Mormon Church he advised a woman not to have an abortion:
The book Horror Stories: Mitt Romney’s Shameful Record with Mormon Women
details Mitt Romney’s “psychological intimidation and bullying” during
his role as a Bishop of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The report describes how Romney “tried to bully” Carrel Hilton Sheldon
when she was suffering through a difficult pregnancy into not having an
Apparently the liberal sites where pushing this meme all week.
There is also a liberal site called media take out claiming that as early as tomorrow a former maid who worked in the Romney Household will come out and say she had a “physical interaction” with the GOP candidate.
That second story is more along the purveyor of election eve baloney, Ms Allred is used to spewing.
If this turns out to be the “Allred Surprise” I am totally confident in saying it’s total horse crap! But that’s what Allred does. As a Lawyer she is also a Democratic Party operative who does not care about the truth only about making sure her party wins.
For example Allred represented Rhonda Miller in a sexual harassment suit against
Arnold Schwarzenegger, which just so happened to occur during he home
stretch of his run for California’s gubernatorial recall election in
2003. The lawsuit was later dismissed.
Then there was the 2010 California Governor’s race which was also taken over by
Allred—attorney, Democratic Party advocate, and protector of scandalous
“other woman.” According to Allred (who was a delegate to the
Democratic Convention in 2008), Nicky Diaz-Santillan worked “toiled”
Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Meg Whitman for nine years, and was
fired in June 2009.
Ms. Allred claimed Diaz was
fired “for what appeared to be political reasons involving Ms. Whitman’s
decision to run for governor.” Ms Whitman, on the other hand claims,
says the former nanny falsely filled out immigration forms when she
first applied for employment as a housekeeper and was not, in fact, a
legal resident of the United States. The Republican candidate Meg
Whitman replied that the reason for the termination was she discovered
Ms. Diaz had lied about her resident status.
It was only after the election the SF Chronicle reported the entire incident was a paid hit job created by the California Nurses Association in order to sabotage the Whitman campaign
Be prepared folks the Sh*t is going to hit the fans if you think the campaign has been dirty so far you ain’t seen nothing yet. Right now Obama is in political purgatory. He cannot talk about his record because it’s awful. He cannot talk about his plan for the future because he has none.
As the nation’s preference is moving away from Barack Obama and toward Mitt Romney, CREEP is flailing around trying to find anything to reverse the tide. Sadly part of that “anything” is lies about Mitt Romney and their candidate, meant to throw voters away from the truth. A man who runs a campaign like that should not be president.
