Obama camp scolds Romney on ‘hate filled' conservative super PAC war plan (Rats getting scared)
ABC ^ | 5/17/2012 | Olivier Knox

Posted on 05/17/2012 9:37:58 AM PDT by tobyhill

President Barack Obama's reelection campaign manager on Thursday accused Mitt Romney of expressing insufficient outrage at a conservative super PAC's reported plan for a " hate-filled, divisive campaign of character assassination" against the incumbent.

According to a copy of the plan obtained by the New York Times, the group hopes to highlight ties between Obama -- who is referred to as a "metrosexual, black Abe Lincoln" -- and his controversial former pastor Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr.'s "black liberation theology."

"This morning's story revealed the appalling lengths to which Republican operatives and SuperPacs apparently are willing to go to tear down the President and elect Mitt Romney," Obama campaign manager Jim Messina said in a statement.

Romney will DEFEND pRes_ _ent Obama,
and in its stead will say the “Presidency” is defective
as he attacks conservatives.

SSDD.

The only thing that is “hate filled” in the GOP plan is the quotes from Rev. Wright.

The Obamunist can go SCREW.

He hired a Communist thug like Shepard Fairey to be his propaganda minister in 2008.

Romney has an out if he's smart enough to take it. When the ad comes out then all Romney has to say is that he would repudiate any “personal” attack but he will not repudiate any truthful acknowledgment of the facts.

Nah.

The PACs will do what they will; Obama’s PACs will slime Romney and both candidates will say they have nothing to do with it.

Obama has been on the attack about Romneys business methods all week and he has the nerve to complain about attacks.
Last week he ttacked him for having an offshore account.

At least we know how Romney got rich. Where did Obama’s millions come from?He came from nothing attended 3 rich colleges stirred up some citizens got elected in a dirty campaign to state senator, got elected to be US Senator in an even dirtier campoaign and now attacks someone else for a dirty campaign.

You have to give Obama one thing he has nerve.

Romney will not be able to stop this. It will saturate under ground. Media will only ask “Should Romney stop this” they will never ask Obama, is this true..... Backasswards

Exactly. The Rats never repudiated Romney’s classmates when they called him a bully.

Yep, and with the book on the Amateur Obama getting play now, it's good timing to remind folks or finally vett Obama. Let him deny how important Wright was in his life.

Axelrod was up tweeting this to his Mainstream MEdia sycophants at %:15 this morning.

They really are scared that Romney is going to go all-out against them.

Romney should state that he would repudiate any “personal” attack against Obama but also make sure to tell everyone that he doesn't control Super PACS and wouldn't say anything against them if it were true to Obama’s character.

IIRC, the GOP superPACs are not under Romney control and can say and do anything they want.

Think Progress Tweet:

“Strategist behind proposed Reverend Wright attack ad has long history of race-baiting for losing candidates”

Christian Hines, The Hill, Tweet:
“Four Reasons why injecting Wright into the race could actually help Obama”

The Media sycophants are out in FORCE against this Plan.
Gee, I wonder WHY?

Romney should say that he cannot tell the SuperPAC to stop for fear of being called a bully again.

But he will probably just defend Obama...

I hope the Super Pacs absolutely destroy the politcal future of the queer in the White House.

None of the bigwigs from that SuperPac had better go out running by themselves early in the morning. They might die of “natural causes”.

More very recent tweets:

Miles Grant, Online Communications Manager for the National Wildlife Fund:
“Do #Cubs fans know their ticket $ may be used to fund a billionaire’s race war on @BarackObama?”

Anthony Kaufman, film journalist for the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, the Village Voice and Slate:
“The Conspirator” financier and Redford collaborator Joe Ricketts Plans Racist Anti-Obama Attack Campaign

Donna Brazille, CNN Commenter:
Get ready to fight back! What we’re up against: “The Defeat of Barack Hussein Obama: The Ricketts Plan”

Which happens to almost EXACTLY what Micheal Czin of ObamaForAmerica just Tweeted:

Insufficient outrage at a conservative group's plan for a "hate-filled, divisive campaign of character assassination?"

Wait a second, now. Isn't that exactly the kind of campaign that's been run out of the Obama White House, and exemplified by administration programs and activities, since The Anointed One's coronation?

Accusing the other guy of doing it is known in psychology as projection. Or is it the proverbial pot calling the kettle black? (Sorry, that metaphor shouldn't be used because it has "racist" connotations! / Sarc)

Who was it just a week or two ago publicly naming major Romney Donors as Unamerican and working against the President?

Maybe, but I think there will be a big difference between McCain and Romney run their campaigns. Think of it this way: Romney has been groomed from birth to be president, whereas McCain was not. Instead, he was the “maverick”, who always was looking for approval from the other side. So when he ran his campaign, he didn’t want to change his persona. But Romney is fulfilling his father’s legacy. Since Romney is near his goal, do you think he will play nice just to lose it?

"Metrosexual, black Abe Lincoln"

The only thing I see as inaccurate here is, it probably should have said "half black".
