The Distractor in Chief
Bonus: Worst Pres. Ever # of the Month: $52 Billion
Ace asked if Phil Klein's basic hypothesis is right? I think it is. The more that Obama can distract the media from the debt bomb and the recession, the more likely it will be that he will win.
Since that time, three stories have dominated the political news cycle. The first came when Hilary Rosen, a Democratic operative, said Ann Romney "never worked a day in her life." The next came when the Romney campaign promoted a Daily Caller story recounting that Obama had eaten dog as a child in Indonesia. The most recent came as Obama decided to spike the football before the anniversary of Osama bin Laden's killing, releasing an ad suggesting Romney wouldn't have made the same call.When was the last time you heard a story on any network other than Fox about the trillion dollar plus deficits of the last three years? When was the last time you heard them talk about the impending entitlements crisis and Obama's complete lack of leadership on the subject? When have you heard them talk about the economy with anything less than equivocation on whether or not Obama shares the blame?
In all of these cases, the Romney campaign has taken the bait, reacting to whatever Team Obama has decided to make an issue.:
The less we talk about what Obama wants us to talk about, the more certain it will be that we will win this thing.
Which brings us to the ......
WORST PRESIDENT IN HISTORY NUMBER OF THE MONTH: Total amount added to the national debt to the penny since April 2nd, 2012 =
In the past one month, Pres. Obama's administration has added over $52 billion -- that BILLION, with a "B" -- to the national debt. One month, $52 billion dollars stolen from your children's future so that Obama can bribe people into voting for the Democratic party.
There's a reason why he wants you distracted from this number. The less you think of it, the less you are reminded of the depths of his failure.
