This morning we called for GOP Candidate Mitt Romney to attack Obama more aggressively. To match and top each one of Obama’s reelection team’s Chicago politics-style attacks. The only difference we suggested was to fight the president’s lies with some truth about Obama.
Today on Fox and Friends Romney seemed to reject going full out Chicago-style politics saying:
“A campaign based on falsehood and dishonesty does not have long legs,” Romney said on “Fox and Friends,” later adding: “The president only has one thing going, and that is constant attacks on me. They’re dishonest. They’re misdirected. And I think the American people recognize that kind of politics as something of the past. It may work in Chicago, but it’s not going to work across America.”
That said, he did just as requested and attacked the president on his crony capitalism.
ROMNEY: “There is no question but that when billions upon billions of dollars are given by the Obama Administration to the businesses of campaign contributors, that is a real problem particularly at a time when the middle class is really suffering in this country. I don’t know whether you watched over the weekend, the report that was in The New York Times about families really struggling particularly those that are single parents that are just having a hard time making ends meet. This is a tough time for the people of America. But if you are a campaign contributor to Barack Obama, your business may stand to get billions of dollars or hundreds of millions of dollars in cash from the government. I think it’s wrong. I think it stinks to high heaven and I think the administration has to explain how it is they would consider giving money to campaign contributors’ businesses.”
Romney followed up that interview with a hard-hitting commercial pointing out Obama’s cronyism.
Lets hope this is the start of candidate Romney hitting the incumbent president with something he won’t be able to handle–the truth!
You may have noticed that You Tube pulled the video above because it features the audio of President Obama singing a few lines from Al Green’s, “Let’s Stay Together,” BMG Rights Management made a copyright claim.
I don’t want to say BMG is being a bit biased but if you click here you will find a few hundred videos of Obama singing the Al Green classic. Why was the Romney video the only one removed? Lets ask them.
