Skip to comments.Plouffe: We expected aggressive Mitt, not 'fundamentally dishonest' Mitt
Posted on 10/04/2012 1:23:18 PM PDT by ColdOne
Top aide David Plouffe suggested on Thursday that Team Obama was caught off guard by the "remarkable" level of "dishonesty" displayed by Mitt Romney during the debate.
"Going forward, one of the things we're going to have to address is that dishonesty," Plouffe said. "It's hard to remember a time in American politics where you had someone who's a major nominee for the presidency being that fundamentally dishonest about core parts of his campaign platform."

puffeee forgot to mention taking out Big Bird. I really despise these life forms.
Hooray! More BS!
Translation: “We are going to fight dirtier than anyone ever has in the next few weeks.”
The spin is making me dizzy.
So many “lies” and Obama couldn’t pick out a single one during the debate. Hmm.
Of course, these kind of “help the prez” articles are the ones actually filled with the lies.
I’d pay good money, and throw in a body part or two, to see a video of Obama’s inner circle discussing last nights disaster.
Well then your memory must be truly awful. One only needs to recall the Dim nominee just four short years ago.
Hello, Mr. Pfluffle, it was a debate; if Mr. Romney said anything that was untrue it was up to Obama to refute it then and there. Instead he stood by in a daze while Romney told the country flatly that Obama was going to cut $700billion from Medicare, didn’t even know the law regarding shipping jobs overseas, and was telling untruths about Romney’s tax plans - and O said nothing.......
They’re going to use “framing” to try to create the impression in the minds of “low-information voters” that Romney told nothing but lies during the debate, that this is commonly known by all the “smart people,” and that Romney’s performance therefore means nothing.
This is kind of like what they did with the word “swiftboating.” They - and their media enablers - have tried to turn that word into a synonym for “successfully undermine by lying.”
George Lakoff (rhymes with).
Now the leftist freaks I know will start telling me Romney is “dishonest” and pretend that they thought of it themselves.
All Romney has to say all day is “Look up the facts for yourself”
Liars calling him a Liar are very stupid. If there is one thing America wont buy is that Saint Mitt the Bishop (yes he is an actual Bishop in his church) is a liar- but Mitt needs to STRESS THAT All day
Make the contrast with Obama obvious- “ONE of us is a liar, alright...” and leave it at that
This will embed the impression Mitt is Honest and Obama AND HIS ENTIRE CREW are lying a$$holes.
How can you take any accusations or threats seriously when they are made by a guy(?) name Plouffe?
If I could get my hands on this slimy little creep it wouldn’t be pretty.
There is no way around it - Mitt is a bully.
The Left is free falling, like always when their theft and failed racial and economic ideas reach reality.
Plouffe, Yahoo! and the rest of the MSLSD complex are freaking out...
They know there will be a fight they might lose, but don’t forget the Bulge when we thought the Nazis were about to surrender.
This line of spin, clearly coordinated based on the numerous leftist media outlets running with it, can be effective and worries me. Many of the sheep want to hate the rich White Guy, who they believe has ill-gotten wealth. This meme gives them cover — “He’s a lying rich White Guy. It might look like he beat our man, but only because he’s duplicitous.”
Translation: Prevarication is OUR job.
It must be so difficult for these libs after they have worked so hard to portray Romney as they want and then the real deal shows up unfiltered. Yikes. The audience sees for themselves and all these libs scream, He lied. Aint selling guys.
I love how these MSMers and Obama campaigners (indistinguishable) when they take a tiny quote and create a whole distorted story line such as the 47% event.
I thought only Tree-House Al Gore came with Debatamatic programmable personas.
*Click* He’s “invade your personal space” Alpha Al! (with Kung-fu grip!)
*Click* Sighing Al!
*Click* Orange Skin Slicked Back Al! (How did that get in there?)
Actually it’s not hard to remember at all, if you can only remember the last thing Obozo said.
Apparently, this is going to be the talking points as a result of Romney’s whooparse on Obozo last night.
Bammy was leading the charge this morning at a rally in Denver...calling Romney a liar. This is all they have.
If Romney was lying why didn’t Obama point out his lies last night? Because, when you lie as much as Obama does, you don’t know the truth from your lies. Clearly, Obozo doesn’t have a clue and all he can do is lie.
I knew that was coming. Hussein is a bully and doesn’t understand the difference between being aggressive in making your point and using ad hominem insults. I’m sure Romney’s advisors are well aware of that and preparing for it.
Obozo”I won” “If they bring a knife, we bring a gun”. “Get in their faces”
His name sounds like a descriptor of the sound a f@rt makes when one has eaten a few two many been burritos.
Oh, to see a bounce for that rat.
On the end of a rope.
That's it - that's the "Narrative" that the Dems and the MSM decided on after the debate. You will be hearing it hundreds of times.
It doesn’t worry me. Romney’s had to deal with that meme from the start.
The psychiatric term is “projection”.
To paraphrase the Kingfish: Do the name 2008 ring a familiar note?
Please tell me that you have something more, Lieutenant.
You want the truth? You can't handle the truty...
When Hussein starts with the personal attacks, I wish Romney could say something to remind people of Obozo’s “knife/gunfight” phrase, or his “get in their faces”. Something to remind people of Obozo’s double standard-he can dish it out but he can’t take it. The classic bully coward.
So tired of blame, excuses, ridicule, name-calling. So ready to hear what Americans truly deserve: the truth.
If the republican is lying so brazenly in debate I expect the democrat to call them on it and demand they explain themselves immediately.
The talking points have been defined by the Plouffeter.
Regardless of the complaints from plufay, the resuscitation is in the works now at SNL. No doubt at this moment, they are crafting a Romney as an angry version of Lovitz’s pathological liar (that’s the ticket). The alinsky methodology of mocking your enemy is where they are hoping to administer CPR.
Yes. I just hope Romney and team can find a way for him to walk the fine line he has to walk between not letting attacks go unchallenged and not appearing too harsh. The media leaves him little room that they can’t and won’t spin for Obozo. That’s why he gets paid the big bucks though :D
The Dems can't afford to openly state their version of the facts, because then they are subject to fact-checking in an environment where they no longer control all the media.
Let them try it. They will come off looking like this Monty Python sketch...
Did Mitt hurt Barry’s self-esteem? Wahhhhhhhhh....
obama had plenty of chances to rebut Romney during the debate — he didn’t do it because:
1) he realized early on that Romney had his facts together and wasn’t backing down,
2) the one who feeds obama’s brain and gives him smirky overconfidence was missing (that would be the TOTUS).
I remember the last time — it was 4 years ago. And he’s doing it again.
Set up a rhythm and a verbal density and people just nod and don't think about what one is actually actually saying.
BWHWWAHAHAHAHA, nicely done!
