Your One Vote Can be Leveraged Big for Mitt Romney!

PLEASE PROMOTE, DISTRIBUTE, TWEET, & EMAIL THIS TO THE BATTLEGROUND STATES

Since the 1770s, Americans have given the ultimate sacrifice so that you and I will have the freedom to vote. Having the liberty to vote is a sacred privilege — one that none of us should ever take for granted. This knowledge has caused me to never miss voting in any American election.

Have you voted yet? If not, please vote this Tuesday. Please, don’t follow any of the polls, up or down, or listen to the mainstream media spin intended to discourage your voting. Don’t let any noise distract or dissuade you. Your one vote matters. Your one vote is extremely valuable to Governor Romney. You can and will make a difference with your vote. And that difference you make could be big.

  • Do you know a young man or young woman for whom this is their first presidential voting privilege? Please ask them to accompany you to the voting booth Tuesday to cast their ballots for Romney/Ryan.
  • Do you know any shut-ins that have voted their entire lives but for whatever reason have been unable to get around much, who may have determined this year that getting to the voting booth is “just too much hassle?” Please graciously ask that person to go with you Tuesday and tell them how grateful you are and Governor Romney is for their effort to make a big difference.
  • Do you have a brother, sister, cousin, uncle, friend, neighbor, or associate that is registered to vote but thinks their one vote makes no difference? Please speak with that person (or two) and ask them to go with you to the voting booth and maybe buy them lunch. They will never miss another election.
  • Do you know anybody in a nursing home that has considered voting to be a sacred privilege their entire life but who is no longer ambulatory? Why not visit that person today or tomorrow and invite them to accompany you to the voting booth after you take them out for a meal or a movie? Do you have any idea how much you will make their day, week, or year? They are from The Greatest Generation and love America beyond understanding.

We are at a crossroads in our nation, right now. This is not hyperbole. This is real. We cannot afford to let up or allow ourselves to be complacent in the least. We can begin to rest on Wednesday. Please do everything you can to find every registered voter you know that supports the Romney/Ryan vision and help motivate them to pull the lever.


Right now, at this very moment, we need to kick into after-burner mode!


Yesterday, Governor Romney said this in his speech in Wisconsin:

“I will bring real change. I know the economy and American job market will still be stagnant, but I won’t waste any time complaining about my predecessor!”

Since the first Romney-Obama debate, you probably read everything you could on the subject, as I did. Though interesting, most of the pieces I read missed the point I think (this one informs us Obama thought he won!). It was not about style or Obama’s lack of eye contact or his lack of energy or enthusiasm; those were simple signs of a greater truth. Mr. Obama does not know how to defend his record of failure. The best analysis I found was by Victor Davis Hanson, “The Game Changes.” (it is outstanding!)

Usually after a presidential debate, both sides spin the results. But after the first face-off between President Obama and challenger Mitt Romney, Obama’s exasperated handlers made no such effort. How could they when most opinion polls revealed that two-thirds of viewers thought Obama lost?

Within minutes of the parting handshake, the liberal base went ballistic. Bill Maher, Chris Matthews, and Michael Moore all but accused Obama of embarrassing the progressive cause. The post-debate spin focused not on whether the president had been creamed by challenger Mitt Romney, but rather on how that had been possible.
[…]
Why, then, the hysteria over a typical Obama performance? What was radically different was not Obama’s normal workmanlike performance, but two novel twists.

As David Gergen said right after the debate, it appeared that Obama, as a first-time chief executive, had been surrounded by people telling him one of two things for his entire term: “Mr. President, that was a wonderful decision.” Or, “Mr. President, what you just did in that state [or country] was historic.” As a rookie executive, Mr. Obama actually believed he had clothes on!

Hanson continues,

This was the first debate in which Obama has had a record to defend. In 2000, he ran for Congress in a primary race against Bobby Rush and attacked the incumbent. In 2004, he ran successfully for the U.S. Senate, offering all sorts of promises — but never ran for reelection on their fulfillment.

In 2008, a blank-slate Obama ran for president and won by lumping in challenger John McCain with unpopular incumbent president George W. Bush — while offering banalities like “hope and change” and “yes, we can!”

The debate with Romney, however, marked the first time in his national political life that Obama has had the harder task of defending a record of governance. That he could not make the case onstage for a successful four years suggests either that his record is nearly indefensible — 42 months of unemployment above 8 percent, more than $5 trillion in new debt, record numbers of Americans on food stamps, anemic economic growth — or that Obama believes voters don’t care that much. Perhaps they will again be mesmerized by his promises of millions of new green jobs, more government entitlements, and more attacks on the better-off who haven’t paid “their fair share.”

Barack Obama has always felt that it was enough to show up rather than to achieve. We all know that he got into Occidental College and Columbia University, was law-review editor at Harvard, was offered a professorship at the University of Chicago Law School, and was elected senator and president. But we have rarely heard of a significant record of actual achievement as a student, academic, or legislator — until his first term as president.

This was also the first time that Obama has faced a skilled debater. In Obama’s 2000 debate with the plodding Rush, the latter coasted — rightly assuming that his long incumbency would be enough to defeat the so-so challenger Obama.

In the 2004 senatorial race, Obama’s main rivals in the primary and general elections imploded due to mysteriously leaked divorce records. The last-minute fill-in candidate in the general election, Alan Keyes, was deemed wacky and not a serious opponent.

Obama ended up mostly achieving draws when jousting with Hillary Clinton in the 2008 Democratic primaries. He won two of the three debates with nondescript presidential rival McCain by consistently attacking Bush and blaming the 2008 financial meltdown on Republicans.

In previous debates, Obama sounded not much different than he did last week against Romney. Obama customarily looked down, gave disjointed, off-topic sermons, and stuttered uncertainly.
[…]
Obama’s handlers know all this. No wonder what worries them is not that Obama was off his game against Romney, but that the game itself — not Obama — has suddenly changed.

For tonight’s debate, a selfish hope of mine is that Governor Romney will not allow Mr. Obama to skip out on why he had Susan Rice repeat a lie about the movie trailer, why he repeated the lie himself several times, and how his administration could allow an ambassador to effectively “go naked” without security on the riskiest day of the year among radical Islamists.

As to last week’s debate, based on my life’s experience, I believe Biden’s debate “offense” of the Cheshire cat smile is a ‘tell.’ And I believe that we will see that same ‘tell’ with Obama. It is a poor attempt by the weak to appear strong. Since they don’t really know how to respond with strength, they smile big hoping the uninformed with give them the benefit of their doubt and dismiss the person challenging their record. Mark my words. Tomorrow, when Mr. Obama’s record is challenged, he will look just like Biden on that stage, smiling from ear to ear! When Governor Romney is challenged, I am confident he will redirect right back to Mr. Obama to continue to hold him accountable to his record. 90 minutes simply is not enough time to have Mr. Obama support the 30+ major promises he made in late 2008 and in 2009 and 2010.

Also, lest anyone forget, the first presidential debate was lopsided in favor of Mr. Obama as he was given a whopping four minutes extra talking time by the moderator! Also, the vice presidential debate favored Mr. Biden as the moderator interrupted and challenged Congressman Ryan far more times than she did Biden. Candy Crowley knows this and should even the tables this time (I stopped holding my breath this afternoon).

The Romney Campaign Exposes President Obama With the Words of Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz

FROM THE ARCHIVES: CONGRESSWOMAN WASSERMAN SCHULTZ ON BARACK OBAMA

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz Accused Obama of Breaking a Promise to Not Campaign In Early States:

Wasserman Schultz Said Of Obama: “His Word Doesn’t Always Mean What He Says.” WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: “I can tell you that, in Florida, we believe that we are a significant factor in national elections and that we are going to matter, whether there is a pledge or not, and that at this point, with Senator Obama’s clear violation of the pledge, which does show that his word doesn’t always mean what he says, that it’s now our time to review all the options on the table.” (Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, News Conference, 1/21/08)

Wasserman Schultz Criticized The Obama Campaign For “Below The Belt” Negative Personal Attacks:

Wasserman Schultz Suggested The Obama Campaign’s Talk Of “Hope” Was Hypocritical And That His Campaign Was Engaged In “Below The Belt” And “Out Of Bounds” Personal Attacks. WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: “You know, Senator Obama set a tone for this campaign and has talked about the politics of hope throughout and has repeatedly insisted that he was going to run a different kind of campaign and not degenerate into negative personal attacks. You know, it’s one thing for the candidates to talk about the differences between the two of them on how they would govern on the choices that they’d make. But to – for either the candidate or his senior advisers to degenerate into negative personal attacks and name-calling, which clearly was the result of frustration and anger over his losses on Tuesday, is just – it’s below the belt, and it’s out of bounds. And it is not – those kinds of comments are not appropriate for a senior adviser to continue to be affiliated with a campaign for president of the United States.” (Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Teleconference, 3/7/08)

Wasserman Schultz Said The Obama Campaign Launched Attacks As “A Result of Frustration and Anger.” “Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida came on the line next and told reporters who were listening in, ‘Senator Obama set a tone for this campaign and talked about the politics of hope.’ She added ‘those kinds of comments are not appropriate for a senior advisers.’ Schultz reduced [Samantha] Power’s comments to ‘the result of frustration and anger over his losses on Tuesday.’” (Katharine Jose, “Clinton Campaign: Fire Samantha Power,” New York Observer, 3/7/08)

Wasserman Schultz Suggested Obama Didn’t Have The Track Record To Prove Himself To Jewish Voters:

Wasserman Schultz Said That While Obama “Says All The Right Things,” He Doesn’t Have The “Longevity” To Prove His Fidelity To Jewish Voters. “‘The main reason she wins and will continue to win the majority of the Jewish vote is this is a community very much about ‘Show me, don’t tell me,’’ Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz of Florida told The New York Sun yesterday. ‘With Senator Obama, although he says all the right things, he just doesn’t have that longevity to prove to Jewish voters that he will be there like Hillary Clinton.’ Asked if there was anything specific in Mr. Obama’s record that should give Jewish voters pause, the congresswoman said, ‘There’s no pause? It’s just that he’s starting completely from scratch.’” (Josh Gerstein, “Indyk Rushes To Ohio For Clinton,” The New York Sun, 2/26/08)

Wasserman Schultz Accused The Obama Campaign Of Trying To Suppress The Vote In Florida:

Wasserman Schultz Said Obama’s Supporters Were Trying To Discourage Floridians From Voting In The Presidential Primary. REP. DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: “And as a Floridian, I can tell you that it’s become clear to me, given Senator Obama’s supporters’ efforts around the state to suppress the vote and discourage people from voting here — because he clearly is going to get overwhelmed by Senator Clinton’s support — that now they’ve seen that that’s not enough to stem the tide of victory that she is riding on and that the bounce that she would get from winning Florida next Tuesday, which is clear is going to happen, is going to propel her to victories across the country on February 5th.” (Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, News Conference, 1/21/08)

Wasserman Schultz Said Elected Officials Supporting Obama Told Communities And Neighborhood Associations To Skip The Primary Because “Their Vote Won’t Count.” WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: “[W]e have had elected officials that are supporters of Senator Obama who have literally gone around to condominium communities and to other neighborhood associations and told them that their vote won’t count; they can skip the presidential preference primary because Florida doesn’t have any delegates, and they should only vote on the constitutional amendment that is on our ballot as well.” (Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, News Conference, 1/21/08)

Wasserman Schultz: Obama “Has Desperately Tried To Have His Supporters Suppress The Vote” And Implied That “Florida Doesn’t Matter.” WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: “What is clear is that Senator Obama has pushed the panic button. I mean, he has lost three contests in other states in a row. He has desperately tried to have his supporters suppress the vote here, try to imply, you know, either indirectly or almost directly, that Florida doesn’t matter.” (Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, News Conference, 1/21/08)

Smoking Gun on Hillary [Update]

Turns out Hillary’s new campaign video that is the talk of the town was filmed in the summer! The smoking gun notes that in the backround of the video (supposedly filmed at her house in NY or GeorgeTown) are trees with blooming flowers.

I’m in it to win…6 months from now.

In the video Clinton makes some dumb shots at Bush saying that Americans play by the rules. What set of rules is she reffering to?

****UPDATE****

Hotline argues she taped it this week and has some compelling evidence. To me it looks like a sunflower in the backround, and those just don’t bloom in January. Givin the Clintons record, I’m still on the side of the smoking gun.
