Latest Romney ad enlists Bill Clinton: “Give me a break”

posted at 3:21 pm on September 6, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

As ever, Team Obama’s inability to tout their own candidate’s economic record meant bringing Bill Clinton to the front and center of the campaign fray, first with ads and then with a prominent convention role, to do the heavy lifting on convincing Americans that Democrats can indeed accomplish great feats with the economy and the budget when just given a long-enough chance (i.e., forget about everything President Obama’s failed to do during his four years; give him four more and just remember how great everything was during President Clinton’s time in office!). We already have ample evidence of Bill Clinton’s many digs at Barack Obama and his policies from yesteryear, but in the wake of his long-winded and factually struggling speech last night, here’s Team Romney reminding us that Clinton wasn’t always a member of the Obama fan club. Heh.

And just for fun, here’s the Romney campaign’s resident ‘honey badger’ with his thoughts on Clinton’s convention role:

 

“Two-thirds of the speech was a great infomercial for the Clinton brand. … And then at the end, he said, ‘Oh, by the way, there’s somebody else running for president and I think I’m here to endorse him.’ What they were talking about last night has nothing to do with reality.”

It’s a good ad, either Clinton is lying now or he was lying then.

The “fairy tale” line is perfect, I love poking a needle in that narrative of the “One”.

My opinion is Romney should show more ads of “Obama the Ridiculous” from his campaign in 2008. Like “we are the ones we have been waiting for” or promising to lower the oceans.

OT: Secret Service looking into DNC delegate who wants to ‘kill’ Romney

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A spokesman for the Secret Service told The Daily Caller that the agency is aware of video showing a delegate at the Democratic National Convention expressing a desire to “kill” Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

“We are aware of it,” Secret Service spokesman George Ogilvie told TheDC on Thursday.

He said the department is “taking the appropriate follow-up steps” with the woman.

Video surfaced on Wednesday of a woman identifying herself as New York delegate Julia Rodriguez telling The Blaze, “If I see him” — in reference to Romney — “I would like to kill him.”

In the video, Rodriguez says she’s from Puerto Rico but she now lives in New York. She expressed her desire to kill the Republican nominee after saying “Romney will destroy this country.”

Sununu makes a great point about a grade of Incomplete. Typically, a student seeking an incomplete is only doing so because the alternative is an F. What does that student do if the professor won’t grant the Incomplete and wants to avoid the failing grade? He withdraws from the class.

This is a great catch by Romney when Obama is trotting out Bill Clinton for support. This could win over some of the Independents who might have preferred Hillary in 2008, and swell the ranks of the PUMAs to turn out for Romney this year.

For some strange reason, some Obama supporters considered Clinton’s “fairy tale” remark to be racist, although Clinton probably meant that Obama’s policy proposals in 2008 were unrealistic wishful thinking.

In contrast, 30 million views saw Romney’s acceptance speech. But, of course, Romney’s actually running for office. Unlike Bill, whom Obama needed the convention to imagine, for one rather long and windy shining moment, that he was.

I don’t know how much of a difference it’ll make – but certainly likely to sway some fence sitting independents.
Fair enough to say ‘so what’, but it is what folks are talking about (e.g. in this thread).
It’s as absurd to suggest Clinton’s speech was bad an ineffective as it would be to say to the same about Rubio’s speech at the RNC.
Erika’s posts too often come off as some food court table snark chat at the mall. She’s as likely to opine that the blue colors on the DNC stage weren’t as nice as the blue colors on the RNC stage.
And here she wants to dig up Hillary vs. Obama b.s? Well we could do that all day…pull up some Gingrich/Santorum/Cain/Ed/Allahpundit vs. Mitt, etc.
And in doing that all Erika’s really doing is highlighting Clinton’s point that Obama is not by politics when choosing who to work with.
‘Was he lying then or is he lying now’?
Well…how about he was being truthful then when he said Hillary was the better candidate and he’s telling the truth now that he feels Obama has done a good job.

verbaluce on September 6, 2012 at 5:28 PM

Clinton has always done that. That’s why his speeches are so damned long. He doesn’t give A speech; he gives two or three separate speeches in a row, with contradictory points.

Clinton always knew how to lob the ball out for the media to layup for him. Obama simply does not have the same skill.

I’m a big Clinton fan. Although I’m no longer a Liberal, I still love listening to the him and Hillary. The beginning was pretty good, but then it just dragged on and on and he started lying like there was no tomorrow. Republicans don’t want people to have a go at it alone. Obama IS removing the work requirement. He’s doing it via the states who want to add more definitions of what “work” is including all sorts of things are most definitely NOT work. Clinton moved to the center after his reelection because Republicans took over Congress. Clinton was indicating the opposite. That he’s the one who did everything. He mentioned jobs of the past, yet didn’t mention that most states with a Republican governor are creating more jobs and have lower unemployment than the rest of the country and did so without raising taxes. Clinton claimed that no one could have done a better job than Obama in restoring the economy. A more blatant lie cannot be said. Obama has ZERO private sector experience. It is IMPOSSIBLE to have a worse person than Obama on the economy. Anyone who has run a lemonade stand has more experience and would have done a better job at fixing the economy.

I could go on and on. This is not a bluff. Please ask. I’m just tired of typing. But Bill lied his ass off. I’ll still listen to his future speeches including those of Hillary, but this was pretty bad.

Sure, now that the corrupt Holder injustice department has told Gallup “nice polling outfit ya got there. Be a shame if anything happened to it,” suddenly barack is going up in “favorability.” Gallup is well on its way to being just another ministry of untruths for the banana republic regime in DC.

Have you given any thought to what a one-point lead reported by a polling agency that has been threatened by the regime translates to in actual votes come election day? They can threaten Gallup into reporting fake polls, but they cannot threaten millions of voters from tossing Hugo Obama’s ass to the curb in November. See how that works?

With the exception of explaining the role of the Democrat’s sub-prime mortgage debacle in the mess which Obama inherited the Romney campaign is doing a very good job. There is no point in shooting your bolt when the public is distracted. You will see a roll-out of devastating anti-Obama ads starting tomorrow.

Over at NRO, Robert Costa has a column on Sununu’s role at the DNC convention and elsewhere. Some of the points are in the video clip linked here, but I loved this outtake of Sununu evaluating what to expect in Obysmal’s speech tonight.

Sununu will spend the rest of Thursday doing what he can to discombobulate Obama and his advisers. “Tonight will be the direct and indirect ‘blame Bush’ event,” Sununu says. “Keep an eye on the president’s right arm, which will be three inches longer than his left arm because he has been patting himself on the back so much during speech rehearsals.”

Inside the war room, the GOP operatives love that joke. “I’ve been sharing that today,” Sununu says. “I’m happy to take the president to task. This is the most dishonest set of presentations I’ve ever seen. They’re either lying or embellishing things that are barely true. So we’re here to provide the alternative data and the alternative commentary.”

“Frankly, it’s fun watching these guys screw up,” Sununu says.

Only in the opinion of those voters who need to use their fingers and toes to count, bless your heart.
