This morning on radio Glenn took an in-depth look at the main attacks the Obama campaign has used so far against Mitt Romney. It’s a pretty sad lineup of negatives - either false or not even bad in the first place. The problem with negative personal politics is it doesn’t work against a truly decent human being.
“Look at the sheer desperation of Obama and the Democrats. They have been reduced to just doing nothing but repeating lies over and over and over again,” Glenn said this morning.
Whether or not you agree with Mitt Romney’s policies, there is one thing all honest Americans must admit: his record shows him to be a man of good character. Unlike the actions of the current White House resident, Romney’s past actions and policies match his words. He isn’t saying one thing, and secretly (or seemingly secretly in Obama’s case) sending messages to Vladimir Putin, Glenn pointed out.
“So, let's see here. In his late teens Mitt Romney gave a kid a haircut against his will which they now say didn't happen, while Barack Obama was being mentored by a heart core, American hating communist and smoking dope, doing drugs to the extent that they named their drug gang The Choom Gang and that's all verifiable. We have photos of that,” Glenn said. “Then in the early 80s, when Romney took his trip in the car with the dog safely secured to the roof, what was Barack Obama doing?
In Barack Obama’s own book, this is how he describes his lifestyle in the early 80s:
PRESIDENT OBAMA: Our Marxist professors and structural feminists and punk rock performance poets. We smoked cigarettes and wore leather jackets. At night in the dorms, we discussed neocolonialism, Franz Fanon, Eurocentrism, and patriarchy. When we ground out our cigarettes in the hallway carpet or set our stereos so loud that the walls began to shake, we were resisting bourgeois society's stifling conventions.
So while the Obama campaign and the mainstream media hyperventilate over Mitt Romney’s dog being securely fastened to the roof on a family vacation and the alleged haircut he gave a classmate, President Obama was hanging out with Marxist professors, destroy property with his cigarette butts (so much for the ‘green’ movement), disturbing the peace with his music, and resisting the bourgeois.
“This is so unAmerican and, yet, at the same time, kind of sad and pathetic and laughable,” Glenn said.
Glenn pointed to the next lie Obama tried to spread about Romney.
“Then they try to tell the American people the amazing lie that Mitt Romney pays less in income tax than the average American,” he said.
Here is the accusation that Gene Spurling made about Romney’s taxes:
“They are actually paying less taxes or a lower tax right than hard working families who are out there working as nurses, as police officers, as construction workers. This is a basic issue of trust and fairness.”
Which not only isn’t true, Glenn pointed out, but shows complete ignorance on behave of the Obama administration on taxes. That, or they are treating the American people like idiots.
“Here's the guy who is on the economic council and he's trying to explain tax rates where he clearly doesn't understand any of it. As we've pointed out and I'll speak slowly for Gene, you can't compare income tax to capital gains tax,” Glenn said.
Glenn corrected the error and noted that the average hard working American is paying around 12.8% in income taxes, while Romney pays around 15%, before moving on to the next lie. This one from Joe Biden:
“We see a future where those rights are expanded, not diminished, where racial profiling is a thing of the past. Where access to the ballot is expanded and unencumbered. Did you think we would be fighting these battles again?”
“No,” Glenn commented upon hearing the audio, “and we’re not.”
The only people that seem to be worried about this “battle” is the Obama administration, who, as Glenn described it, is ‘shadow boxing.’
“They are so desperate for ammunition that they resort to flat out proven lies,” Glenn said.
