Obama Critics: Why not focus on real issues?
I am mystified why total bull crap seems to be the focus of nearly every critic including the Romney campaign. From the current work to welfare purposeful lie, to the the alleged anti small business slam of you didn't build it, to alleged death panels and the endless banshee shrieks of socialism, to the inane birther nonsense. This crap keeps getting doled out while real, potent issues are ignored.
Obama has plenty to actually criticize. His extension of the patriot act that guts basic civil rights, to drone kills includes collateral damage of innocents, to the Guantanamo still being opened. Could it be that the lying bull crap, introduced as a political tactic of the Republicans during the Clinton years, has become pathological and all they have left? Or is it because Romney and the Republcans don't really have anything to offer but a rehash of the disasterous Bush/Cheney policies and they need to distract?
The good news is Obama, a first for a Democratic Presidential candidate in my lifetime, has masterfully played offense. Something Republicans have always been better at and they have successfully kept Romney from getting his message out. They have masterfully kept the heat on and forced him to stay on the defensive. He who is on the defensive looses on election day, or so it seems. All signs at this point to Obama winning by a large electoral margin. (I wouldn't bet the farm in it but would place a small wager. Never underestimate Democrats ability to screw it up!) It also doesn't hurt that Romney is a weak candidate who came to the nomination bruised and battered following the one of the longest, ugliest, unintentionally hilarious and most revolting Republican primaries in my lifetime. It was obvious from the beginning he was the only one fit for a general election but he had to wade through the muck of Gingirch, Santorum, that ignorant, vile woman and her queenie, screamingly gay husband and the rest of those twits to get the crown.
