Romney: This election is about jobs, not about Obama eating dogs

posted at 4:16 pm on April 18, 2012 by Allahpundit

C’mon. It’s a little bit about Obama eating dogs. The data doesn’t lie, my friends.

The sad truth: A few more months of weak job growth and The One might actually prefer an election about dog-eating.

Mitt Romney today asserted that the general election will be about “jobs not dogs,” when asked by a radio host today about the media’s focus on his former dog Seamus and the president’s admission that he once ate dog meat.

“This campaign is ultimately going to become about jobs not dogs,” said Romney in an interview with Bill Cunningham on WLW radio in Ohio. “You recognize of course that some members of the media, and certainly the DNC and the White house itself are going to do everything in their power to divert the attention of the voter from the failure of the president to try to turn around the economy.”…

Romney appeared uninterested in furthering the story line about his own dog or the president’s childhood meals, instead bringing the focus of the interview back to the way President Obama has handled the economy.

As president and would-be president, O and Mitt have to rise above the mouth-breathing stupidity of dog-themed talking points. Fortunately for bloggers like me who are hungry for cheap traffic, there are plenty of surrogates out there who don’t. Tell ‘em what’s up, “Dogs Against Romney” guy:

The founder of the grassroots organization Dogs Against Romney called the Romney campaign “desperate” for dredging up the revelations that President Obama ate dog meat as a child in Indonesia.

“It seems desperate for the Romney campaign to bring up something that happened to Obama when he was 10 years old, not preparing his own meals, in a country where eating dog meat probably isn’t all that unusual as if it compares in any way to Romney, as a 36-year old adult, in America, making the conscious decision to strap his family pet to the roof of a car for a 12-hour drive, and leaving it up there even after it got sick.”…

“If President Obama had made the conscious decision to eat dog meat as a 36-year old adult, in America, claimed the dog liked being eaten, and still claimed he didn’t think there was anything wrong with it, the Romney campaign would have a point and my pack would be on the president like a pack of wild, well….dogs,” Crider wrote. “But that isn’t what happened.”

I love the fact that even for a meme as dumb as this, which is being pushed as a goof on how moronic the Democrats’ “dog” attacks on Romney are, you’ve still got Obama shills very earnestly engaging with the subject to try to draw a contrast. But then, they have to, right? Like I said last night, the story about Mitt and Seamus really is part of Hopenchange’s campaign strategy. They’re not going to win on the issues but maybe, if they spend enough, they can create enough of a “likability gap” to nose out Romney at the wire. See streiff at Red State for more on that. Quote: “If he can convince you that Romney is a cross between Scrooge McDuck and Moe Howard who adheres to a very strange set of religious beliefs then he wins.”

Here’s Scarborough and company treating the “dog” wars with precisely the degree of seriousness that they deserve.

You’ve got your order of events backwards the “distraction like this if you’re running for office” initially came from President Puppy Muncher’s team.

I still think Mitt needs to hammer the economy. The dog stuff is fun, a little comic relief is good for us. And in that vein

Mitt’s motto is now, “Cry havoc, and let slip the dogs of war!”

What’s Mitt going to say? If the conservasphere tries to respond with “that’s how capitalism works”, that’s just going to encourage middling voters to say they dislike capitalism.

alwaysfiredup on April 18, 2012 at 4:27 PM

How many people did Obama fire in the Gulf after the oil spill? How about all those people he fired from the coal mines? And then there’s Solyndra…and how many SS agents and GSA folks are going to get their pink slips?

And if the middling voters hate capitalism, then Romney discusses how swell Cuba and Mexico. He could quote Margaret Thatcher and Milton Friedman. He might also mention that most of our ancestors arrived here because the old system said that if their fathers were serfs, they were serfs. No upward mobility there.

I do hope Romney understands these concepts. In his gut. Like Reagan did. Then the American people will understand they’re being conned by the promise of a free lunch.

Mitt Romney just like McCain loves Obama hates Conservatives

In a raucous speech, Mr. Nugent told audience members that “if Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.” He added that if they could not “clean house in this vile, evil, America-hating administration, I don’t even know what you’re made out of.”

Barack Obama:

called on Mr. Romney to “condemn Nugent’s violent and hateful rhetoric immediately,”

Cowardly Mitt obliged Obama

“Divisive language is offensive no matter what side of the political aisle it comes from,” said a spokeswoman, Andrea Saul. “Mitt Romney believes everyone needs to be civil.”

As I have been saying 100% Obama wins.

Now I will add.

Mitt is doing every thing in his power to fool us and elect Obama.

Companies are not charities. Look I’ve worked my way up the ranks from grunt to CTO and every job in between. It’s about making money. If a group isn’t profitable you have two choices, fix it if you can or cut it.

Yeah that means layoffs and I’ve been caught in that a few times myself, but if I ever create my own company I do not want someone who’s never worked, created or built anything telling me what’s “fair.”

In 2008, at the height of his popularity & in a year when Mickey Mouse would have won if he had a “D” after his name due to 8 years of Bush fatigue, Obama had to spend close to a billion dollar to beat McCain by less than 7 points. And you think now with a record for the first time in his life — and one of total failures — and actually up against someone who’s willing to vet him (and who can’t be knocked out of the race on a technicality or a “leak” about his nasty divorce) — also for the first time in his life — he’s going to win re-election by more than 8?

Yes but more importantly, the best way to get to a narcissist like Obama is to mock him. Narcissists take their Grandiose Self-Image extremely seriously and the most effective way to make them fall apart is by laughing at them. That is why even though we all realize how ridiculous the whole “War on Dogs” meme is and how it has nothing to do with the real issues facing this country, it is still important to keep this kind of push back up against Obama. Not only should the GOP candidate keep pounding Obama on his record of failures and the real issues (that Obama wants to ignore), the rest of us can greatly help in keeping Obama off his game.

de rigueur on April 18, 2012 at 8:28 PM

Yes & most Americans find this disgusting.

And last year Obama signed a bill that allows the slaughter of horses.

4 more years and he’ll be quietly signing a bill into law that allows dogs to be slaughtered and shipped to Indonesia

What’s the difference between a pit bull and a pig?
Obama doesn’t eat pork.

onlineanalyst on April 18, 2012 at 9:48 PM

Shipped to Indonesia?? Or, maybe just introduced into our own meat supply with no warning. Since they’re so much about openess, that wouldn’t surprise me in the least. We’ve come a long way from “ketchup is a vegetable” days. Get this news tweeted to everyone. Nothing like a pissed-off public to throw them off stride. The gang that can’t walk and chew gum….lol!

Perfect! Almost daily Romney should come out and say, come on, I don’t want to talk about Obama eating dogs, I want to talk about…

RJL on April 18, 2012 at 7:21 PM

He was on Hannity, and wouldn’t let Hannity go there…brought it right back to the economy. Mittens aint talkn ’bout it…he’s letting his team tackle it. Sign of a leader who knows how to delegate responsibilty. He keeps on message, while his team does the slapping around…I am impressed.

“jobs not dogs”

By God, he’s got it! I think he’s got it!

minnesoter on April 18, 2012 at 10:22 PM

Noisy and extended primary, adds up to a serious trial.
One the opposition avoided.

Baseball?
Mr Romney is in shape for the playoffs after a tough season.
Smart player, knows the game. Makes you beat him.
Hits for a strong average, gets on base,
makes few fielding errors,
shows up to play to win every day.

His dry delivery is primed for funny lines.
Short one liners on the stupid D of the day.
If one a week could get traction…

PaleoRider on April 18, 2012 at 10:30 PM

You’ve got your order of events backwards the “distraction like this if you’re running for office” initially came from President Puppy Muncher’s team.

Jim Treacher demonstrated the idiocy and shallowness of the attack by goofing on Obama’s revelation of snacking on Rover.
The Obama Army attack WAS the distraction.

You are right on this!

lovingmyUSA on April 18, 2012 at 10:10 PM

I saw that too and got the same impression. So far he seems to be staying on his message and this is a good sign.
+ How well Priebus handles himself on the talking head shows
+ Some of the recent RNC Web ads
and I see some nice positives shaping up.

I was not a Mitt supporter, but I realize he’ll be the R nominee and I will support him. While I agree with many HA posters about the R establishment, I’m pinning my hopes on 2012 on Mitt, and can work for more Conservatives in the future.

Red State State of Mind on April 18, 2012 at 10:42 PM

Score number 2 for team Romney.

Think any of these clowns would be poo pooing the dog story if Romneys operation didn’t toss the grenade back at Obama ?

Respond to every attempted distraction with an equal one and media will be tied in a knot.

Win win for Romney.

rickyricardo on April 18, 2012 at 9:32 PM

Well put. The whole thing really does have the one-two punch of an old war movie where the enemy pitches a grenade into the foxhole, and the GI grabs it and throws it back and blows up the thrower.

As I said upthread, EXCELLENT job by Team Romney. Keep it coming.

Axelrod looks like Moe after Curley blew up the gas station!! :-)

cane_loader on April 18, 2012 at 11:52 PM

ddrintn,

You say it’s pathetic that people are talking about dogs, but c’mon – Axelrod STARTED it!

I mean, are you just lying or have early-onset Alzheimer’s or what?

I’ve seen you make some good comments here over the years but you’ve got to be kidding me, trying to pin this on Romney?Q!?

cane_loader on April 18, 2012 at 11:55 PM

We need to scorn and ridicule the likes of Axelrod. He wants to focus on dogs? By all means. Let’s slap him up side of the head with dogs. Then we bring it on back to the Obama record, and slap him up the other side of the head with that. They want a playground shoving match? Fine. Let’s put them on their ass and move on to the situation on jobs, energy, growth, international threats, etc.

Schadenfreude on April 19, 2012 at 12:12 AM

It seems desperate for the Romney campaign to bring up something that happened to Obama when he was 10 years old

Seems to me like it was Obama who “happened” to the dog, not vice-versa.

Jay Leno: “President Obama released his tax returns. It turns out he made $900,000 less in 2011 than he did in 2010. You know what that means? Even Obama is doing worse under President Obama.”

galtani on April 18, 2012 at 6:46 PM

For humor to work, there must be an element of truth. This works and I’m surprised as hell that it came from Leno.

swinia sutki on April 19, 2012 at 5:18 AM

Romney: This election is about jobs, not about Obama eating dogs

TEA Party Patriots agree. This election is about kicking out the LIBERALS along with their socialist programs, waste filled spending, and tax increases, and that is where RonMe’s biggest problem lays in the upcoming election.

Which will you vote for? The GOP liberal or the Democrat liberal? Maybe it is time to elect a third party candidate.

DannoJyd on April 19, 2012 at 6:47 AM

we all might be eating dog if BHO gets re-elected. and be glad to have it. the spca will empty out. DD

I will not eat dogs in a crate.
I will not eat dogs on a plate.

Wait – Obama ate snake to take on the powers of the snake? Does that make him a Parseltongue? Is Obama really Voldemort?
