Skip to comments.Obama Ad Continues Effort to Tie Romney to Outsourcing (Limp-wristed response from Team Mitt)
Posted on 07/14/2012 11:43:34 AM PDT by jimbo123
President Obamas campaign continued on Saturday to prosecute its case against Mitt Romney for holding offshore accounts, releasing a new television ad that mockingly shows Mr. Romney, the Republican candidate, singing America the Beautiful.
The new ad which the campaign said was running in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia reminds viewers of those issues even as it shows a clip of Mr. Romney singing at a campaign event in Florida earlier this year.
It says Mr. Romney shipped jobs to Mexico, China and India accusations that Mr. Romneys campaign vehemently denies. And it notes that Mr. Romney had millions in a Swiss bank account and tax havens in Bermuda and the Cayman Islands.

You are correct. I can’t stand another elction cyle with a weak kneed republican candidate. The last three years of the Obama presidency represent a target rich environment. Commence to firing already!!!!!
JOE “SCRANTON” BIDEN!! GOP needs to start running ads highlighting how Scranton, PA has CHANGED under Ubama/Biden! FOUR MORE YEARS OF UBAMA/BIDEN and the entire USA can be JUST LIKE JOE BIDEN’S SCRANTON, PA - BANKRUPT!!!
“Matt Rhoades and the rest of Romney’s advisors are definitely sabotaging Mitt’s campaign to clear the GOP deck for Jeb Bush in 2016.”
And you? Sabotaging it to clear the way for Obama in 2012?
All Mitt has to say is the real job outsourcing is by Obama’s immigration policy to the Mexicans.
Say, I wonder if that Dole fellow is available. Wasn't he the lively one?! What about that well-spoken pilot chap with the lumpy jaw, what was his name? Now that was an unforgettable campaign!
So you see, young fellow, no need to worry. Plenty of energetic candidates to take up the old GOP slack. No need to be so harsh on old Mitt, either. His metrosexual beltway wimp advisers are very fashionable in Republican circles these days. They are well-mannered and can be counted on to avoid gutter campaigning.
You see, Jimbo, we are going to win this because well, we are not like those other people.
Sounds just like the limp wrist campaign that McCain ran. No real men left. This is the best the US can come up with? Twice?
lets wait and see...
i’ve been screaming for years the GOP fights like little girls dating to the start of GWB’s second term...and while i’d love nothing more than to spit in obama’s face the fact is Romney’s campaign and the GOP has done a decent job responding to this BS the past few months; last week they ran ads calling obama an outright liar for claiming Romney outsourced jobs then ran ads showing obama as the outsourcer and chief...
lets see whats in store next week...
Obama is using the same playbook FDR used to get reelected in 1936 with 17% unemployment. Romney’s people are running the same campaign that Alf Landon ran back then.
Yeah, I meant to post to the person who started the thread. Not satisfied in posting a New York Times hit piece he also had to add his own personal smear to the title.
Mr. Landon received 8 electoral votes to Roosevelt’s 523.
RINO apologist, begone!
Gosh, Jimbo, that wasn't very nice. Republicans must never say nasty things. It's not who wins or who loses, it's how we play the game. Sticks and stones ... you know the rest.
Mitt is very nice. That's why I am sure everyone at the club will vote for him. Republicans are just, just ... so nice! I am sure they will get many votes.
The Campaign and Election of 1936
FDR entered the 1936 election with a strong, but not invincible, hand. The economy remained sluggish and eight million Americans still were without jobs. Critics from various points on the political spectrumsuch as Father Coughlin and Dr. Francis Townsendhad spent much of the previous two years attacking the President. (They supported Representative William Lemke of the newly formed Union Party in the 1936 election.) Likewise, by 1936 FDR had lost most of the backing he once held in the business community because of his support for the Wagner Act and the Social Security Act.
Republicans, though, had few plausible candidates to challenge FDR in 1936. They settled on Alfred Alf Landon, a two-term governor of Kansas who was the only Republican governor to win reelection in 1934. Nominated on the first ballot at the Republican convention in Cleveland, Landon was a moderate conservativeand notoriously lackluster public speakerwho the party hoped could take votes from FDR in the rural Midwest. Unfortunately for Landon, his moderation was often drowned out during the campaign by the conservative clamor emanating from the Republican Party, as well as from his running mate, Chicago publisher Frank Knox.
Roosevelt seemed to relish the attacks of Republicans, maintaining that he and his New Deal protected the average American against the predations of the rich and powerful, Referring to business and financial monopoly, speculation, reckless banking, FDR crowed, Never before have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for meand I welcome their hatred. Roosevelts supporters believed their candidate understood and sympathized with them. As one worker put it in 1936, Roosevelt is the first man in the White House to understand that my boss is a son of a (expletive.)
