Democrats are running ads to hurt Gov. Romney in South Carolina this weekend. Revolution 2012 at RightSpeak makes some interesting observations on the attacks.
The Democrats are attacking Mitt for supporting Supreme Court Justices like Thomas and Scalia as well as saying he is on the same page as Paul Ryan. Other than that, they try to use a play on words to say Mitt Romney changes his mind a lot but literally gives 0 examples to support their attack. President Obama is probably angry that an ad this pathetic was used against his fiercest competitor. I could be giving President Obama too much credit though, maybe he thinks it will be effective. If the Democrats spend a billion dollars on attack ads like this, Gov. Romney is going to be whistling all the way to the White House. Check out the response from the Romney camp:
‘President Obama and his team are desperate to change the subject to anything other than jobs and the millions of Americans out of work,’ Andrea Saul, a spokeswoman for Romney’s presidential exploratory committee, said in a statement. ‘With 9.6% unemployment in South Carolina, voters are looking for a jobs plan not a smear campaign.’
According to Politico, the following e-mail has been sent to some supporters of Gov. Romney.
Just this morning, the New York Times posted a story, “Group Unleashes Early Ad Against Romney,” about President Obama’s reelection campaign machine starting attack ads in South Carolina against Governor Romney. All the while, South Carolina is hurting. Like many states suffering from the failed policies of the Obama administration, the Palmetto State has seen 3,800 more jobs in April disappear than in the previous month; and they are currently experiencing 9.8% unemployment.
After campaigning so famously on “hope” and “change,” the President and his team have now resorted to governing on fear and misdirection. Already, former Obama aides and union leaders have been commissioned to lead outside political attack groups — which aren’t limited in the amount of high-dollar donations they can receive — and President Obama himself plans to raise an additional $1 billion.
As part of their effort this weekend, they’ll be welcoming Governor Romney’s visit to South Carolina with a misleading, negative attack ad — their first ad of the campaign. There is no doubting it — the vast amount of money that President Obama has raised over the last few years is being put towards silencing his opposition. Don’t be silenced — donate today.
Make no mistake. Governor Romney plans to confront these attacks head-on. He will not allow these tactics to slow him down. Governor Romney’s message of restoring a prosperous economy and bringing jobs back to the American people is too crucial to be suppressed by political maneuvering.
I hope you’ll join me and stand with Mitt today. Help him show these outside political attack groups that they’re out of tune with America’s core beliefs, and do so by donating today. Your contribution and support is crucial to continue to push back against these negative attacks.
Thank you for your support.
P.S. These attacks will continue. Share this with your friends and family and help Governor Romney expose President Obama’s real agenda. Please ask them to donate $5, $10 or $25 today.
To all the Republicans who think Gov. Romney can’t beat President Obama, it’s fairly obvious that President Obama disagrees. Let’s make the creators of those ads regret their decision to air them and all make a small donation to Gov. Romney’s campaign today!
