Fast response: RNC already up with Obama-forgot-the-recession spot

posted at 2:01 pm on May 11, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Yesterday, Barack Obama told an audience at a campaign rally that “sometimes I forget” the magnitude of the recession … and today, the RNC wants to make sure everyone remembers this quote.  Their rapid-response team already has a video spot up less than 24 hours later, complete with somber, funereal music and the obvious data points in the graphics.   And Democrats can’t complain that the remarks were taken out of context, either:

Don’t expect the RNC or Mitt Romney’s team to get amnesia over this, either.  “Sometimes I forget” will likely accompany every spot on the economy both organizations produce from now until the election.

I look forward to a year from now hearing Obama in interviews and speeches talking about he sometimes forgets he’s no longer President.

Doughboy on May 11, 2012 at 2:03 PM

Way too soft.

Obama never forgets to tally his scorecard after the back 9, though.

“We are not going to make the recession and the President’s incompetence a campaign issue.” J. McCain s/ (sort of)

Glad Romney and the RNC are fighting much harder than 4 years ago.

He always seems to forget that he’s not Supreme Overlord either. Except the media and his cronies never remind him he’s not.

I’m more impressed with the rapid response. The GOP seem to have its act together much more now than back in 2008. The low information voter is still at least 4 months away from paying any sort of attention to the race.

And, given Romney’s more-than-competent campaign staff and the GOP’s recently proven agility, I like our chances. We’ll should see the ads really go for the jugular by October.

Common Sense Floridian on May 11, 2012 at 2:12 PM

They should have used the footage of Obama exiting the plane, forgetting Michelle and then going back for her… Kind of a theme of forgetfulness.

Fallon on May 11, 2012 at 2:14 PM

I can understand how he forgets. I mean, if I was golfing and vacationing and partying at the WretchedHive as much him without ever worrying about the cost of it all, and then campaigning the rest of the time on the taxpayer’s dime, I wouldn’t have a clue what was really going on either.

stukinIL4now on May 11, 2012 at 2:14 PM

…my gawd I’m glad they respond so quickly…it makes the other side start flinging their sh!t sooner than they have too…and so far nothing’s sticking!

KOOLAID2 on May 11, 2012 at 2:15 PM

Agree. Fast response, but the photos of Obama need to be better juxtaposed to the hurting masses. I mean, at least include a shot of him on the golf course, for heaven’s sake!

Obama straps the US Economy on top of his limosine.

Electrongod on May 11, 2012 at 2:23 PM

I applaud the fast response of the RNC.

To those who say the ad is too soft, I think different approaches reach different people, so a variety of approaches is good. This particular ad is meant to emphasize the depression – both in people’s hearts and in the economy – that has been caused by the Democrats.

I think future ads should do more to compare and contrast were things were in 2006 before the balance of power shifted to Democrats in January 2007. While the Republican Congresses did spend too much, the ecnomy in general was in good shape when the gavels for the House and Senate were handed off to the Democrats in Jan 2007.

Also, I’d like to see an add that starts off with all of the times Obama talked about jobs being his “top priority”, and end with him now saying that sometimes he “forgets”.

I agree the RNC is doing great.

However they are very unlikely to get Mitt elected.

North Carolina voted down Gay Civil Unions as well. Why they do not want Gays to be able to adopt. Most Americans do not want Gays to be able to adopt. But Mitt does strongly. Mitt also has no problem hiring Gay Marriage Advocates.

Mitt is so weak on Gay Marriage. So strong on Gay Adoption that many Christians will not pull the lever for him in November even though they will probably tell pollsters they will. I can not possibly vote for Mitt based on this alone. It would be like voting for Satan. Same with Obama. So I will vote for neither.

Steveangell on May 11, 2012 at 2:28 PM

Wait… Obama said he read letters “every night” from people, including children, who are struggling… so how could he “forget” the magnitude of the recession?

ITguy on May 11, 2012 at 2:29 PM

Now, if only the RNC can nail Obama for his vacillating…er no…equivocating….I mean….flip-flopping on gay marriage. That will at least neutralize one flip-flop from Romney.

So, you totally ignore his explicit statements of

“We have to have a president who’s willing to say that the best opportunity an individual can give to their unborn child is an opportunity to be born in a home with a mother and a father,” Romney said at the CNN debate. “We battled, for instance, to help the Catholic Church stay in the adoption business. The amazing thing was that while the Catholic Church was responsible for half the adoptions in my state — half the adoptions — they had to get out of that business because the legislature wouldn’t support me and give them an exemption from having to place children in homes where there was a mom and a dad on a preferential basis.”

Mitt wants gays to have every single right a Married couple does he only objects to the name for it marriage being used.

Yes I am sure that is what South Carolina, California and so many other states were voting against Gay Marriage for. So the Gays could have Marriage by some other name. Just trying to keep the language pure.

I mean tell me something Mitt is against giving gays other than the name Marriage.

You are all GOD less Baal worshipers.

Every dream he has spun has been a lie
Here’s the one bitter lesson of Obama’s history
His soul should no longer remain a mystery
His many faces change
What you thought you knew grows ever more strange
And he has so many faces
His real self erases
With all those lies dancing in his empty eyes!

Sounds more like he is taking his ball and going home. My guess is most would say that he can go over and sit on the bench and watch the rest try and get the ball across the goal in November.

Also, he will have no legitimate reason to complain about the outcome.

Good ad but it could be enhanced quite a bit by showing that blurb in a loop, with changing pictures of the lines at the unemployment office side by side with pictures of him and the linebacker queen on their vacations (noting the number of them) and of him on the golf course (noting how many), etc.

TXUS on May 11, 2012 at 3:25 PM

There are far better images of the president that should have been used. As others have pointed out – multiple shots of him golfing, vacation shots, dancing/partying, hobnobbing with celebrities, tight shots of him laughing.

I give this video an “A” for effort and an “F” for content and effectiveness.

Recovery Amnesia Summer

As others have suggested, juxtapose black and white stills/footage detailing average Americans with their economic struggles interspersed with vibrantly colored stills/footage of the Obamas on vacation set to this background music.

He forgets so lets make sure come Jan. 2013 that he has no job.

I hope he doesn’t forget to do his college brackets next year! I couldn’t survive without those.

LA Times op ed today:

Too brainy to be president?

There is no doubt. Sheer genius.

Stupid spot. The funeral piano, slo-mo video… it’s so 1998.

Perhaps Romney forgot he’s a Conservative now:-) Hopefully he’ll “evolve” on the adoption issue.

However, I’m not worried about him doing anything about adoption.
How many President’s have we had that were Pro-Life? But we still have abortion.

Staying home and not voting is not an option. Put your personal preferences aside as I and many others have and think about your Country. And think about the many many things that this current occupant has already done to harm all Americans and our Country. That alone motivates me, regardless who the Republican Nominee is.

You are all GOD less Baal worshipers.

Not true. We are not a one issue group. You seem to be tho. I understand your point, but this election is not about gay issues. B.O. wants it to be if that works, but he’ll make it about anything other than the truth. This election is about the survival of our Country. Think about it. Who brought the gay marriage issue up? Not Romney. We can’t win anything on defense and allow B.O. et al to set the agenda for us. We must be on the offense continually and not be distracted by these tactics. Majoring in minors won’t get the job done.

Since no one has mentioned it … King Putt is forgetful because it is Bush’s fault.
The ad is OK as far as it goes but it needs a little ‘tightening’ and perhaps more of an edge for some commentators here. I’d like some side-by-side golf course images with President Downgrade’s pathetic “Sir Charles” swing, but there aren’t any. Anyone wonder why? There are no cameras allowed when Dear Liar plays the course. He needs some time away from the Witch House so he can enjoy a smoke, ya know?
