The economy has been recovering in several swing states. Uh-oh, says Romney, we can’t have that! At least, we can’t let the electorate know the truth! Hence, the story of Romney telling GOP governors to downplay any economic recovery that’s happened in their states. He’s told GOP governors to cool it, and not talk about improved economic conditions, lowered unemployment rates, etc.
After all, we can’t have voters knowing the truth! It fits right in line with the overall GOP strategy of SCARING voters into voting for them, by either playing to their inner bigotry, or playing up just how “bad” things are, or will be, under Obama. Even if they’re not!
Romney continues to bash Obama on foreign policy and national defense fronts, stating that under Obama, we’re much less safe. This, despite the incredible foreign policy and military successes under Obama. When Obama DARED to try to obtain contraceptive coverage for those individuals who wanted it but couldn’t get it through their insurance…Romney fell all over himself stating that religious freedoms are “under attack” by Obama, and would shrivel if he were given another term. There’s a lovely new attack ad on Obama by the National Republican Campaign Committee that claims under ObamaCare, there are massive new taxes on ‘heart attacks, sick puppies, and new babies’.
Romney and other Republican attacks on ObamaCare alone probably keeps the entire staff of FactCheck.org working 24 hours a day. What’s one more lie, on top of all the others? Romney knows that lying works, since far too often, the electorate believes this kind of crap.
