Mitt Romney hammers Barack Obama over Joe Biden’s racist coment
Yesterday while speaking in front of a mostly black audience Joe Biden informed the gathering that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan wanted to “put y’all back in chains.” When asked if the president would distance himself from Joe Biden’s comment the White House stated they fully supported the sentiment and refused to back away.
One of the worries many of us had about Mitt Romney was a perceived lack of toughness and the possibility that he would not go after Barack Obama as hard as he needed to, ala John McCain. However, when the Obama regime started floating the possibility that Mitt Romney was a felon and a tax cheat without any proof Mitt Romney rightfully took offense and came out swinging.
Joe Biden’s outrageous reference to slavery in front of a mostly black audience, and his assertion that Republicans would like a return to slavery was another time where a hard line response was needed by Mitt Romney, he could not let these charges go unchallenged, and last night he came out swinging hard.
This is what he had to say:
Mitt Romney used a tough new campaign speech to personally blast the Obama campaign on Tuesday, saying comments earlier in the day from Vice President Biden are “what an angry and desperate presidency looks like.”
“Mr. President, take your campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago,” Romney said while campaigning in Ohio.
He hit this one out of the park: The Obama campaign is becoming increasingly nasty, hateful, and angry and I think Mitt Romney summed it up perfectly.
In 2008 Barack Obama had no record, either as a state senator or as a United States senator, because he had worked his whole career to avoid taking a stance on any tough issue. He did this so that he could be a blank slate in which people could see in him what they wanted to see without any proof that he wasn’t who the people thought he was.
This allowed him to run on hope and change, which can mean different things to different people, and it worked better than he could have hoped for. This time around Barack Obama has a record which can be examined and with that record he is forced to run a totally different type of campaign in order to avoid talking about his abysmal record: Gone is hope and change, gone is there are no red states and there are no blue states there are only united states, gone is the promise to bring Americans together; replaced with angry, hate filled, divisive language in an attempt to bring down his opponent instead of building up his own campaign.
Barack Obama’s 2012 election strategy is one of divide and conquer: He is purposely trying to divide Americans by race, gender, economic, and social classes and this is quite a contrast to the Barack Obama we saw in 2008. And we are still fairly early in the campaign, it is only going to get worse from here as Barack Obama becomes more desperate to hold onto the power he so desperately craves.
Mitt Romney was right to call out both Barack Obama and Joe Biden on this, but he is going to have to hammer this point home from now until the election or Barack Obama might just be successful in his Marxist campaign style. Barack Obama is not going to change his strategy at this point so Mitt Romney is going to have to be equal to the task at hand.
