More Feckless Republican Clowns Fret Over Obama Tape Resurrection
These idiots act as if only one bit of news can exist at any one time. I don’t see anyone demanding the Romney campaign somehow take up the issue. It doesn’t make Benghazi, the debt, or entitlements suddenly go away somehow. Gee, suddenly the Romney campaign is going to make something happen there it hasn’t done, or tried to do for months at this point?
Worse, it’s these feckless Republicans who can only see it as a matter of race-based politics. I don’t. How about this from Real Clear Politics in May this year. Presidential Campaigns Always Concern Character. This new tape is all about character and the media carrying Obama’s water. It has very little to do with race in my view.
But I think these guys are too afraid to take shots like that at Obama for fear of being called racists. You almost have to wonder if they’re hiding something about themselves.
Some of these candy asses seem afraid to punch Obama on anything that isn’t completely personally sterile and purely wonkish in nature. There’s a black guy in the race and they’re so afraid of him, or of being portrayed as racist, they’re curled up in baby diapers, or wetting their rubber training pants. Man up, for God’s sake.
“This hurts Mitt,” said 2008 Romney consultant Alex Castellanos, who has at times been a harsh critic of his current campaign. “Mitt’s window to turn the economic debate around is [Wednesday.] And his alleged supporters just shit on it. An abysmally selfish and stupid event.”
Castellanos wasn’t the only one to break ranks Tuesday.
“I [don’t] think this tape will persuade anyone. A cover up in Libya, a failing economy, and $16 trillion in debt are persuasive,” RedState Editor in Chief Erick Erickson tweeted late Tuesday.
“So, what new information do we have? That Obama’s “I barely knew Rev Wright” was a lie? Sorry, already knew that,” tweeted Florida GOP consultant Rick Wilson.
Former McCain and Huntsman campaign manager John Weaver said attempts to use the video to energize the base are just another missed opportunity.
What a weak group of Republicans: Fret Over Obama Tape Resurrection. Fret away, ladies. I’m unaware of much of anything most of you have done to try and help win this thing.
