Obama: Romney An Extremist, I’ll Compromise During 2nd Term
August 27, 2012 4 Comments
President Obama should seriously consider not speaking in public between now and the election. Why? Because every time he says something in public it’s ridiculous and it makes him look like a blithering idiot. His latest example took place during an interview with the AP when he said Mitt Romney was an extremist. That’s right, moderate Massachusetts Mitt is an extremist in Obama’s mind. The problem here is that the Democrats really believe that people who are pro-life are extreme, they really believe that people who believe in slightly lower taxes are extreme. It makes one wonder who the real extremists are.
But of course calling Mitt Romney an extremist isn’t even the kicker in Obama’s interview. He actually said that he would compromise with Republicans during his second term. Obama is a President who called Republicans “the enemy” in 2010. His campaign accused Romney of killing a former employee’s wife when she had cancer. He has spent four years refusing to speak with Republican Congressional leaders, in fact he spent the first two years announcing that he won so he didn’t even have to listen to Republicans. Now he’s calling our moderate candidate for President an extremist. But we’re supposed to believe that Obama is going to compromise with Congressional Republicans during his second term. I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you if you believe Obama.
You can see why Obama shouldn’t speak in public anymore. No one other than the most extreme liberal Democrats believe Mitt Romney is an extremist. He’s a johnny come lately to the conservative movement. The idea of not raising taxes during a recession recovery is hardly shocking or extreme. His position on abortion isn’t in line with the GOP platform, he’s to the left of George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan on the matter. Surely his opposition to homosexual marriage isn’t extreme, after all Obama took the same position until May of this year. Opposing Obamacare surely can’t be extreme, after all over half the country continues to oppose it. Of course would it surprise anyone to discover that Obama thinks half the country is extreme?
Obama’s goal is to make Romney look like an extremist rich monster who isn’t worthy of the White House. The fact though is that Obama’s attempts haven’t worked. Romney is only a point behind Obama in the Real Clear Politics average, he started August four points behind. Nobody in their right mind thinks Romney is an extremist, which makes those who say such things look like complete idiots. Which of course Obama looks right now making such accusations of Romney. Obama looks even more foolish in suggesting he’ll compromise with Republicans. Why should anyone believe him, he’s so far refused to compromise. We have a major tax increase coming on January 1st and Obama has made no effort to compromise with the GOP. But of course, he’ll compromise all over the place beginning January 20th. Who believes this nonsense?
Romney ought to have a field day with the litany of ridiculous comments coming out Obama and Biden’s mouths over the past few weeks. He needs to highlight all of this nonsense in his acceptance speech or allow Ryan to take it on point by point. The Obama campaign has been on a downward spiral ever since he declared ‘you didn’t build that.’ He says that but Romney’s the extremist. What planet are these people living on? The same planet that believes Obama is going to suddenly become the compromiser in chief during his second term I suspect.
