Great response to the Obama nutbags
Obots are getting crazy as election day approaches. If Obama wins he has divided the country beyond help for the next 4 years
Ten days out, it's anybody's guess who will win the presidential election. But the tone of the two campaigns offers an insight into the confidence level of the two candidates.
Republican Mitt Romney offered another major economic address on Friday, stressing job creation through policies that encourage private sector investment.
It was intended as a contrast to the 20-page brochure that President Barack Obama is mailing to 3.5 million battleground state voters that purports to detail his economic plan, but is being roundly dismissed as just more government spending and punitive tax hikes.
Romney is responding to polls that show women voters, who had been solidly for Obama, coming his way because of their economic concerns.
Since the first debate nearly a month ago, the Republican has managed to convince voters sour on Obama but doubtful of his own character and competence that he has what it takes.
On the other side, the president's campaign is now driven by desperation. Obama's team promised at the beginning of this election cycle to "kill" Romney, and yet the challenger is very much alive, weathering $300 million in attack ads.
Obama can't pivot from destroying Romney to making the case for his own re-election.
The campaign is stepping up the "war on women" charge, hammering battleground markets with abortion messages.
He's also hop-scotching college campuses to wake up voters who've returned to apathy because of their dismal job prospects. Obama recruited the morally-challenged character from HBO's "Girls" series to do a spot equating a vote for him to losing your virginity to a really nice guy.
Vulgar is part of the repertoire; Obama called Romney a "bullsh—er" in an interview. Very presidential.
What else will Obama backers pull out in the final days?
I got a taste last week, after The Detroit News published its endorsement of Romney. Even though we praised Obama for the auto bailout, I can't tell you how many messages I got accusing the newspaper and me of racism.
One voice mailer called me a bald dummy and threatened to bring "175 ministers to run my racist a-- out of town."
Liberal commentators are reviving the word Obamaphobe to describe those who oppose the president, saying his race, not his results, motivate the criticism. It's an effort to guilt those who supported Obama's historic election in 2008 into voting for him again, lest they be declared racist.
The tactic was tested by former President Bill Clinton at the Democratic National Convention when he declared Obama the subject of unprecedented vitriol (apparently forgetting the rabid right impeached him) and wondering if racism was the reason.
All this makes Obama look as if he's scared to death, blindly firing off his weapons in every direction.
Romney, meanwhile, appears confident and in command. That's a lot stronger image to project down the home stretch.
