Let’s face it, it really won’t matter who the GOP nominee is when it comes to the Obama campaign. So Mitt Romney squeaked out an eight-vote win over Rick Santorum early this morning. Yes, Mitt Romney, a guy who is hardly confused with the Tea Party. But the Democrats will be on message: It’s all Tea Party, all the time.
Mr. Messina called the vote a “clear victory” for the “extremist Tea party agenda:”
“No matter who the Republicans nominate, we’ll be running against someone who has embraced that agenda in order to win — vowing to let Wall Street write its own rules, end Medicare as we know it, roll back gay rights, leave the troops in Iraq indefinitely, restrict a woman’s right to choose, and gut Social Security to pay for more tax cuts for millionaires and corporations.”
Um, didn’t we just leave Iraq? And who was it who received more money from Wall Street than anyone in 2008? Oh yes, Barack Obama. And, let’s just suppose now that Romney is the nominee: When has he stated he’ll end Medicare, gut Social Security and “roll back” gay rights?
He never has.
Team Obama has nothing to run on so it’ll be scorched earth, the most dishonest campaign you’ll ever witness, and don’t expect the media to point out their lies.
It’s already getting ugly.
Mr. Messina is also sure whoever emerges victorious in the Republican race will have a dangerous far right platform.
Mitt Romney having a dangerous far right platform? Really?
“So the path ahead for Romney — or whichever of the Republican candidates is going to emerge from this process — is sadly and starkly very clear: to run even further to the extreme right, and make even more dangerous promises that threaten not only the progress we’ve made but the fundamental fabric of American society,” Mr. Messina wrote.
These people are hysterical. By the end of the campaign they’ll have ads with Romney wearing a white hood dragging women into a back alley to force abortions on them.
