Why is the Romney campaign so upset by people speaking the truth?

Tea in the Harbor 2012/04/30 22:25:54
Willard and his allies have two things they've been attacking the President for, and both of them are simply stating indisputable facts.

They think it's horrible for the President's campaign to tell the public who Willard is getting his money from, and they don't think it's fair to mention what most people consider Obama's premiere foreign policy accomplishment, getting Osama Bin Laden. They think it's especially unfair to mention that in his first year of running for President Willard said that going after high value targets in Pakistan is the wrong thing to do.

Apparently the more true a statement is, the more offensive the GOP Bossman finds it.

We all knew Mitt had a little problem with flip flopping, and of course the vast majority of his supporters have shown the same weakness. After swearing on all that is Holy that they would never support Mitt for months they folded like so many pairs of socks a couple of weeks ago and became unwilling dupes pledged to support a man they detested the day before. They suddenly fell in love. LOL!

My guess is that when he doesn't win the election in November he's going to fire them all.

    Media Ignore Obama’s Flip-Flopping

    Contrary to popular impression, President Barack Obama has been remarkably consistent: He has consistently presented major initiatives that have failed and has just as consistently backtracked on changes he has promised.

    Obama’s healthcare bill has turned out to be a disaster, raising costs and driving doctors out of medicine. His stimulus was a failure, doing little to spur the economy and adding close to $1 trillion to the national debt.

    His outreach to Iran has produced only more belligerence and a continuation of its nuclear program. His foray into Libya is unfocused and has resulted in a stalemate.

    On the other hand, to his credit, Obama has backtracked on promises that were unwise. Instead of opposing an extension of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which is essential to protecting the country, Obama has supported extending it.

    Instead of trying terrorists as criminals in civilian courts, the administration will try them before a military tribunal at Guantanamo Bay. Instead of closing the prison camp there, Obama is keeping it open.

    Obama said he would start pulling out troops from Afghanistan in July. Now the Pentagon is saying that date is not set in stone. While he said previously he would roll back the Bush t...

    Obama said he would start pulling out troops from Afghanistan in July. Now the Pentagon is saying that date is not set in stone. While he said previously he would roll back the Bush tax cuts for those making over $250,000, Obama ultimately supported retaining those cuts.

    Obama’s flip-flopping began with his first campaign. Back then, he said
    he favored public financing of campaigns and would take it himself. He reneged on that and is hoping to raise more than $1 billion from private contributors for the new campaign.

    Mitt Romney has been singled out as a flip-flopper mainly because of his comment in 1994 about abortion. “I believe that abortion should be safe and legal in this country,” he said in a debate with Sen. Edward M. Kennedy.

    Romney later said that, like President Reagan, he has changed his views and position on abortion.

    In contrast, Obama has changed his position — for better or worse — on almost everything he has said. The difference between Romney and Obama is that Romney is a Republican, while Obama is a Democrat who is adored by the media. For that reason, you will rarely see Obama described on television or in print as a flip-flopper.

    6. Letting Sudan off the hook for the Darfur genocide

    7. Backing a federal Europe after defending national sovereignty

    8. Pledging to restore America’s standing in the world but lowering it instead

    stupid is as stupid wears.

    This is a laugher. What's more important than where Romney gets his money from (which is noneya) is where Odumbass is sending America's money to. Giving away our money to his brother terrorists who want to kill America.
    I have never seen such a fail at a liberal post in all my days on SH. PATHETIC!

    Romney could win this thing hands down if his super pac and everyone else would just run time line clips of Obama and what he has said, changed what he has said, not done what he has said from when he was a senator who basically only showed up to announce present to today. I figure the "present" deal was so he wouldn't be on record on any hard votes, you know, anything that could come back to bite him on his butt.

    It's fun to watch him the DNC and his other cohorts raise issues only to have them come right back to bite him in the ass hard.

    It's very effective to see him self destruct.

    The feigned and hypocritical umbrage of the conservative operatives and pundits is truly astounding. There are plenty of reasonable arguments to be made about the President's policies or his performance in office, but you will never hear them from RWNJ who prefer to gin up the hate through lies and innuendo. These poor delusional ranters can't even have the decency to call him by his title or correct name! Their arguments are on the level of underachieving third-graders. "He's touting his accomplishments. How unbecoming! He's using our candidate's words against him. Bad form! He's campaigning! NO FAIR!"

    This question is about the Romney campaign's aversion to the truth, if you'd like to speculate on whether Hillary will enter a Presidential race nobody with an ounce of brains has ever said she'd enter go ask that question. I'm sure you'll find some people who thin it's an excellent question. They won't be able to tie their own shoes, but they'll see yout point.

    As a conservative, I give credit to Obama for having the balls to allow our soldiers to do their job.

    I also credit him for continuing to "air raid villages full of women and children" or in non Obama campaign speak, continue to use predator drones.

    I commend him for saving us the money of allowing Bin Laden to go to trial by just executing him on the spot and once again going back on more of his confusing campaign rhetoric.

    I will finally commend him for keeping Guantanamo Bay open and allowing us access to the information that interrupted Mr. Obama's golf game on that day!
