The Obama Camp will desperately try to paint their opponents as anti-minority, anti-women, anti-gay..anti-anything that the left can distract Americans with, but they fail to grasp what issue affects the entire nation as a whole…JOBLESSNESS & SEVERE FINANCIAL HARDSHIP! The Obama Administration lobs one ridiculous accusation after the other, from Romney being a felon and a murderer to the entire GOP wanting to rewind back to the days of slavery and racial segregation (For instance, have you heard his latest claim about the GOP wanting to go back to the days of “Black & White Television”??). Mr. President, We The People…of ALL walks of life, of all party affiliations, from freshly out of high school to freshly out of college, we want to WORK and we want a future for our children, grand children and future generations to come! We do not want to worry about whether or not we’ll have money to buy food, clothes, or shoes for our children. We shouldn’t have to worry if we will not have a home tomorrow, or how we are going to come up with money to pay the electricity bill. I could spend the entire day writing this blog on how Americans are suffering & struggling through these difficult, uncertain times. Just go right ahead and focus on issues like contraceptives, gay marriage and all those other issues that are the furthest thing in the minds of mainstream Americans. This just proves that you are completely OUT OF TOUCH and you are NOT what our country needs nor wants. We want a leader who UNITES, HEALS and LOVES this country. To you and your party of downers…we’ve had ENOUGH!
Yesterday, Politico reported that the GOP had hit upon a new strategy to defeat Barack Obama in the upcoming 2012 presidential election: focus on the fact that he has been a disappointment. As Jonathan Allen, an Obama administration acolyte, writes:
Obama’s team was spinning the convention as a complete miss, arguing that Republicans didn’t lay a glove on their man. Yet what emerged from Tampa was a subtle, clever shift in GOP messaging, a much more dangerous strategy for Obama than the kitchen-sink attacks that preceded the gathering. Republicans posed — rhetorically — as Obama 2008 voters, lamenting his unfulfilled expectations as if they had been with him all along instead of trying to block him at every turn.
Allen can’t help shilling for Obama even as he spots the truth: the GOP recognizes that independent voters and 2008 Democratic voters aren’t stupid, and know that Obama has fallen short of expectations. The fact remains that Obama had control of Congress for the first two years of his presidency, remains in control of the Senate, and has rammed through vast swaths of his agenda. And the fact remains that unemployment is sky-high, inflation is a significant danger, and the average American family is far worse off under his “recovery” than they were when he took office.
This popularity of this messaging shift is obvious. The Hope and the Change, the Stephen K. Bannon-directed, Citizens United-produced documentary, drew some of the highest cable ratings of the year when it was featured on Fox News’ Hannity – and that film focuses on disillusioned Obama supporters. That film presented the tip of the spear for the conservative attack on Obama’s record. Americans For Prosperity has released an ad labeled “Hope and Change Has Failed,” and centering on disappointed Obama voters.
