Pardon my language, but I have an honest question regarding acceptable etiquette. I’m in a quandary. It’s not like it’s a “new” development that’s causing the quandary, but there are recent events that have definitely exacerbated the situation.
Mitt Romney has never been one to, well, worry about the truth. As his own campaign has stated “We won’t let our campaign be dictated by fact checkers!” Of course not! Why let a campaign for the most important job on the planet be dictated by something as silly as “fact”? Mr. Romney has certainly shown that he takes his campaign slogan seriously, as there have been countless instances where “fact” has been, well, distorted a wee bit.
With a week to go in the election, Romney is getting increasingly desperate though, a fact bourne out by his increasingly desperate campaign tactics in the pivotal state of Ohio. A few days ago, Romney put out an ad implying that because of Obama, Jeep was shipping Ohio auto manufacturing jobs out to China. The claim is rather curious, given that Obama saved the auto industry, and thus, 1 in 8 jobs in the state of Ohio. Chrysler, the company that manufactures Jeeps, immediately put out a rebuttal to Romney’s bullshit, with a website statement refuting all parts of Romney’s claim. As Chrysler stated, not only are they not moving American jobs oversees, but Chrysler is investing over $500 million in a Jeep factory in Ohio, and are looking to EXPAND hiring by 1,100 workers.
The Romney campaign, NEVER one to admit how completely full of shit they are, doubled-down on the ad campaign today, releasing radio ads in which they continue the claim that Obama policies are resulting in Jeep shipping manufacturing capabilities to China. This, despite Chrysler itself just rebutting the claim, and talking about expanding operations in America. This, despite a host of fact-checkers bashing Romney for the blatant lie.
THIS is how far the Republican party has sunk. Not only does the Romney campaign think you, the voting public, are a bunch of complete imbeciles who will believe this crap, but the Republican operation backing Romney claims their own “fact checking” proves the Jeep commercials are kosher. The Wall Street Journal and other “unbiased” entities have backed Romney’s ad campaign, claiming they are “correct”.
Romney knows he’s losing this race. He knows he’s losing Ohio. So, as he’s done throughout this race, he once again is proving that he will say ANYTHING, take ANY position, or contradict his own previous positions, to try to fool people into voting for him.
Therefore, my quandary. Is it acceptable to call a man who could possibly be your President a LYING PIECE OF SHIT???
I thank God that with one week to go, it’s looking like I won’t have to deal with a Romney presidency. I won’t have to deal with a LYING PIECE OF SHIT as my president. If something should happen a week from today, where Americans choose to vote THIS type of person to the most powerful position in the world?
Then I’ll know it’s not just Romney who is morally bankrupt. It’s been QUITE obvious in this election that Republicans and Obama haters will stop at nothing in their quest to defeat him. t’s been quite obvious that it’s not just Romney who has sold his soul, but so have one hell of a lot of “good” American citizens, who seem to believe that Republican tactics are perfectly acceptable.
