The Romney Rule: Declaration of Class War

Filed under: 2012 Election — Karl @ 11:22 am

[Posted by Karl]

An attention-getter from the left-wingers at PrioritiesUSA:

Even unhinged Obama groupie Andrew Sullivan is “a little taken aback.” Odds that Andy will find it refreshingly aggressive and confident if Team Obama decides to go this over-the-top? 100%.

The response from the RNC or Romney’s Super-PAC ought to point out that Obama has raised more money so far from those evil banksters than all of his GOP challengers combined. Indeed, Obama has raised more from Romney’s old firm, Bain Capital, than Romney has. They ought to respond now because they may not be able to make that strong a claim next year. However, it’s entirely possible that Romney will simply allow himself to be pounded; he’s caught “guilty Republican syndrome.”

  2. More of the brazen lies about our tax structure. That’s what we are going to hear for the next year – more lying from the Democrats and President Goldman Sachs.

    Otherwise, your “ding” is listed two-hours earlier than what you’re “dinging” about.

    Date/Time codes should, throughout the ‘net, be shown in GMT (Zulu) to eliminate this minor confusion.

    That is just crazy. Isn’t it? I thought Romney made that company the success it is. I’m even a little off for Romney, and I really don’t like him. How disloyal! I have never seen any reason why Romney’s work at Bain would justify anything but loyalty. No snark here, that’s cold.

  11. Unfortunately, Karl is probably correct. Excepting some milquetoast protestations to the contrary, Mitt will most likely take the pounding (something our Sully can relate to and admire) while somehow hoping to rise above it all.

  12. “worth as much as $250 million” is not the same thing as “earning as much as $250 million”. Not that I like Romney or anything.

  13. Obama is going to beat Romney up with stuff like this. And in fairness getting out of Iraq is not only good politics but good policy.

    If Lil’Mitty is not going to raise hell right back about half a billion here and hlaf a billion there wasted on “green energy”, he should quit now. Managerial progressivism with a dash of statist crony capitalism is not conservative. It’s only slower that the current Socialist-In-Chief.

  14. Romney is an fraud.

    DohBiden (d54602)

  15. Karl:

    It would be a tactical mistake for Romney to respond in the way you suggest, by addressing Obama’s fundraising. Yes, Obama is a hypocrite (probably one of his lesser sins), but the hypocrisy ploy won’t score Romney any points because the public assumes that all politicians are somewhat hypocritical. In addition, complaining smacks of having too thin a skin, complaining because someone isn’t nice enough to you.

    I suggest Romney counter by combining the central weakness of Obama’s tax policies with polls showing more and more Americans blame Obama for the current economy: Obama is pushing policies that has cost America jobs and will cost us even more as time goes on, is destroying American confidence and competitiveness, leading to an ever-increasing and powerful government that intrudes into our private lives and pitting American against American… in contrast to Romney’s proposals which would create an environment conducive to hiring, boosting American confidence and would get government away from trying to pick winners and losers.

    I’m not big on the words, per se, but Romney can’t win if he sticks to playing defense against Obama. He has to go on the offensive, making it clear that Obama is to blame and making it clear that Romney’s policies offer a way out of the mess we’re in.

    steve (369bc6)

  16. I mostly agree, Steve, but think Romney should also highlight the fact that Obama tries to have it both ways. He, in essence, is blackmailing Wall Street and other large donors by attacking them and only backing off somewhat when they fill his (and the DNC’s) coffers.

    Obama has much to be on the defensive about. He has no credibility on anything.

    ColonelHaiku (e0595a)

  17. Romney accusing others of wanting to have it both ways is like Al Gore accusing you of playing on someone’s fears.

    DohBiden (d54602)

  18. And in fairness getting out of Iraq is not only good politics but good policy.

    Not only is this decision wrong, it’s way out of line. After all the “blood and treasure” we’ve spent, this clown decides to give it away. We could have maintained a presence, strengthened our relationship with the Iraqi’s and countered Iranian aggression, but Obama gives it all away for the sake of what, exactly?

    Good policy, my ass. This decision will one day be viewed as one of the biggest mistakes of this mistake-prone administration.

  22. Another Drew – Restore the Republic/Obama Sucks,

    The backdated ding in this case was because I osted and miseed that Aaron had the sockpuppet thread upfresh, so I potponed the post after the ding.

    steve,

    There will be plenty of time to pursue the strategy you suggest. Pointing out Obama’s hypocrisy now is important because if Romney is the nominee, Obama will certainly go after him as a flip-flopper, so the response does double duty. Meanwhile, as the HotAir link in the post points out, you may lose some of the potency if banks start donating to the RNC after the GOP nominee is known.

  23. Col.H-

    If not now, when?The GOP establishment, like Mccain, Dole, the Bushes, etc. thought and still think nothing of needlessly keeping troops and bases in places like Germany, Japan and Korea . We are broke. Our troops are stretched beyond breaking point with multiple long-term deployments. Petraeus is a politician and his COIN nonsense a fraud,at least in any ME/Islamic countries. If the Iraqis were going to try any American soldiers they accuse of misdeeds, we could not tolerate that.The Obama Administration, awful as theya re, could never allow that. The whole nation building nonsense is just that; these people are not going to be Jeffersonian democrats and they will probably hate us. If Iran gets out of line, Israle will deal with it forthwith and with extreme prejudice. This is not our fight any more. It probably hasn’t been since the day Saddam was killed.

  27. “On substance, Romney remained as solid as ever, showing by far the most mastery of policy, with the possible exception of Gingrich — but without the lecturing tone and world-weary condescension.

    Romney’s command was best seen in his takedown of Cain’s 9-9-9 plan. Cain refused to concede the burden to consumers of a national sales tax added on to existing state sales taxes. Doggedly sticking to his point long after it had been undermined, he kept raining down metaphors about apples and oranges. His national sales tax is a solution to a federal problem (a monstrous tax code), he insisted, and therefore irrelevant to any discussion of state sales taxes, which would exist regardless.

    It took Romney one sentence to expose the sophistry. He simply pointed out that a real-world consumer with a basketful of apples and oranges would be paying the sum of the two sales taxes at checkout. Q.E.D.

    Cain remained, as always, charming, engaging, confident and good-willed, the only person on stage other than Bachmann who didn’t have a sour or nasty moment. But his tax plan collapsed under fire in about 10 minutes, the coup de grace delivered by Gingrich, who, when asked why the Cain plan is a hard sell, replied, “You just watched it.” It was the deadliest line of the night.

    However, the principal drama was provided by Perry. His aggressive performance brought him back into the game, especially because he now has a few weeks before the next debate to deploy his major assets: a talent for retail politics and a ton of money.

    But the price of reentry was high. His awakening wasn’t very pretty. He showed he can draw blood, but it was a nasty schoolyard punch-up. In primary races, personal attacks often have the effect of diminishing both candidates. This happened in 2004 in Iowa when Democratic front-runners Dick Gephardt and Howard Dean savaged each other, allowing John Kerry and John Edwards to sneak past them.

    Nonetheless, because of his considerable resources, Perry, by merely stirring himself, is back. But he hasn’t solved his problem. It’s not just that, as he readily admits, he’s not very good at debating, although that in itself is a huge liability. It wasn’t before 1960. It is now. And based on Perry’s first five performances, Barack Obama would eat him alive in a one-on-one.

    But apart from the importance of debating itself, Perry’s often clueless responses betray an even deeper problem: He simply hasn’t thought through the issues on a national scale. He is still Texas. And Texas simply isn’t enough. That was most glaringly evident during the Dartmouth debate when, in response to questions about China and then about health care, Perry sought immediate refuge by talking instead about his energy plan. Interesting, but unrelated.”

  34. The most compelling argument for Romney would be that he has taken a horrific beating on his “Romneycare” as being similar to Obamacare. If there is anyone in the field that would want to repeal Obamacare ASAP it is Romney. He is compelled to do it and get it done quickly. Secondly the argument that he “doesn’t care about people” that will be used by the other side doesn’t fly in that arena because he did something about healthcare in his state and that tactic wouldn’t make sense. Finally listen to what the guy is SAYING; he’s going to cut taxes, lift regulations, start drilling, repeal regulations, and so on. He’s pro-life, wants to shrink government and cut spending. As a police officer from Mass I know he’s pro law enforcement and military. He wants to appoint a “Milton Freidman” like person to head the FED and conservative justices. What else would a conservative ask of anyone else?

    Dave B (982f20)

  35. I don’t understand what the ad’s basis is for saying Wall street Romney “doesn’t see the big deal with letting taxes go up by $1,000 for hard-working Americans.”

    What are they talking about? They kinda point you to the “Bloomberg/Washington Post debate, 10/11/11.” That’s where Wall Street Romney said:

    You have to stand by your principles. At the same time, you know that good Democrats and good Republicans who love the country first will be able to find common ground from time to time and recognize we can’t keep on spending like we’re spending, we can’t demand more from tax revenue from people, because that kills jobs and hurts working families.

    We have got to help the middle class in this country. The only way that will come together is if you have people on both sides of the aisle who listen to a leader who has the experience of leading. And that’s what America is looking for and desperately longing for.

    later he said

    I think it’s a terrible idea to raise taxes. Particularly at a time when the economy’s struggling, the idea of raising taxes, taking more money away from the American people so government can spend it…

    and then later – damn he does carry on doesn’t he – later he said this

    Well, the reason for giving a tax break to middle income Americans is that middle income Americans have been the people who have been most hurt by the Obama economy. The reason that you’re seeing protests, as you indicated, on Wall Street and across the country is, middle income Americans are having a hard time making ends meet.

    Not only do we have 25 million people out of work, or stopped looking for work, or part-time jobs needing full-time employ, we just saw this week that median income in America has declined by 10 percent during the Obama years. People are having a hard time making ends meet.

    And so if I’m going to use precious dollars to reduce taxes, I want to focus on where the people are hurting the most, and that’s the middle class.

    OHHHH!!! I SEES IT!

    you finally get to what they’re talking about

    Romney isn’t for extending the payroll tax cut for another year! I put that all into my 401K so I won’t miss it when it’s gone. Here’s the relevant passage:

    GOLDMAN: Governor Romney, I want to ask you, because President Obama’s jobs bill stalled in the Senate today, and so it may have to be broken into component parts for Congress to vote on.

    If the payroll tax cut is not extended, that would mean a tax increase for all Americans. What would be the consequences of that?

    ROMNEY: No one likes to see tax increases, but look, the stimulus bills the president comes out with that are supposedly going to create jobs, we have now seen this played in the theater several times, and what we’re seeing has not worked.

    The American people know that when he went into office and borrowed $800 billion for a massive job stimulus program, then they did not see the jobs. Some of those green jobs we were supposed to get, that is money down the drain.

    The right course for America is not to keep spending money on stimulus bills, but instead to make permanent changes to the tax code. Look, when you give — as the president’s bill does, if you give a temporary change to the payroll tax, and you say, we’re going to extend this for a year or two, employers do not hire people for a year or two.

    They make an investment in a person that goes over a long period of time. And so if you want to get the economy going again, you have to have people who understand how employers think, what it takes to create jobs.

    And what it takes to create jobs is more than just a temporary shift in a tax stimulus, it needs instead fundamental restructuring of our economy to make that sure we are the most attractive place in the world for investment, for innovation, for growth, and for hiring. And we can do that again.

    GOLDMAN: So you would be OK with seeing the payroll tax cuts?

    ROMNEY: Look, I don’t like temporary little Band-Aids, I want to fundamentally restructure America’s foundation economically.

    Hey you know what when you read that it’s almost like propaganda whore Juliana Goldman was setting Romney up just for to facilitate exactly this kind of ad.

    Kooky.

    Rubio is not the conservative you are led to believe he is by another one of these re-invent yourself at CPAC moments

    Second, if your parrents leave cuba 5 or 6 years before castro even ARRIVED – dont campaign for the state legislature saying your family fled communism

    Look, its understandable when young people are interlocked in a race for their first elected office to make claims that they now wish they hadn’t said.

    But Rubio stole money from the Republican party and it wasnt until Frist called him out on it (this was before they were in the senate race against each other) that then speaker Rubio discovered his”accounting” mistake and reluctantly repaid the money

    Rubio was a center lefty as a Republican in the Florida House and turned miraculously (after having another one of those no show jobs at a state college) into a right wing hawk after flashing his Ricky Ricardo charm and using a list of hot point Tea Party buzz words to a bunch of righty activists at CPAC – who never seem to ever vette their speakers.

    Maybe this is why Rubio doesnt want ANY scrutiny as a VP candidate

    Go Figure – guess these things are not as important as Rubio being cheesy about his family fleeing communism instead of being thrown out of Cuba by the guy Castro overthrew…

    I mean Rubio had nothing ever so what to do with what his parents did more than a decade before he was born and Janet’s saying she had no idea – even though she owned these political organizations that her husband stole money from while they were buying an expensive house and condo

  75. I like Rubio.

    I really seemed like and easy call to prefer him to Crist. It was shocking that Romney endorsed Rubio many months later than all the conservatives did, basically when it was inevitable that Rubio would win.

    Not much leadership there.

    Dustin (b2fb78)

  76. BTW, it’s no surprise that Rubio isn’t an ideologue of the right. I don’t think he’s ever really presented himself that way. He’s a compassionate conservative, and he supported Huckabee, hardly a fiscal conservative, in 2008.

    There is this absurd need to deify politicians on the left. Let’s not go that route. Yes, that kind of thing really helps Romney, whose supporters would have us believe he is brilliant and supercapable of resolving many problems without any specific solutions (read his 160 page plan to make plans… it’s nice but inadequate).

    Just because someone is ‘on our side’ doesn’t mean that it’s evil to criticize them.

    Rubio seems like a good guy, but personally I think it’s crazy he was under serious consideration as VP (at least by pundits, entirely for the lowest political reasons) and I think a fair analysis of the guy will show he’s not perfect.

    We should be careful not to see any of these guys as more than they really are. This is hardly a problem for Perry, who is not running on personality or fake-brilliance, but just his hard earned record. No foam columns for that guy.

  77. Former New Hampshire governor John Sununu will endorse Mitt Romney tomorrow, a decision made after a serious look at Rick Perry. From the New Hampshire Union-Leader:

    In exclusive interview, Sununu said he narrowed his choice to Romney and Texas Gov. Rick Perry, but was won over by what he views as Romney’s conservative approach to pressing domestic and national security issues.

    He said the final component that persuaded him to back Romney was the former Massachusetts governor’s early October foreign policy speech at The Citadel in South Carolina.

    “That showed me that he understands that the principal role of the President of the United States is the security of the country and participating in trying to stabilize the world,” Sununu said.
