DNC ad: Man, Mitt Romney was like a mean, aggressive bulldozer, wasn’t he?

posted at 1:21 pm on October 4, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

Just in case we needed another indicator of how thoroughly Mitt Romney trounced President Obama during the first presidential debate last night, the following is among the first post-debate videos put out by the Republican National Committee.

Daaang. Romney was not messing around. This next one, meanwhile, is one of the first post-debate videos posted by their counterparts at the Democratic National Convention.

Wow, guys — is that the best thing you could put together? That’s kind of… pathetic. I mean, it’s fitting, granted that Obama’s weaksauce, populist rhetoric sounded so feeble and petty when it finally met Mitt Romney’s free-market, pro-growth message face-to-face, but immediately going after the other candidate for his debating style — rather than the content of what he said — tells us pretty much everything we need to know about who won the debate and why.

Also, somebody sure as heck needed to call out Jim Lehrer. He did a pretty poor job keeping the debate in line, and helped Obama along more than once. Even with all the ‘rambling’ and ‘interrupting’ the DNC points to Romney having done with this ad, Obama still had more overall speaking time than Mitt Romney did. How much less would Romney have been afforded if he hadn’t jumped in?

Here’s my latest email from the DCCC begging for money:

Sasha — Last night, Mitt Romney went on the attack with zero regard for the truth.

And with 33 days to go, here’s your wake up call about this election: Romney is now within one point in Florida (47-46) and two in Virginia (48-46). These states hold the keys to the White House and the Senate.

If there was ever a time to fight him back, it’s right now. We must raise $1.2 million by midnight tomorrow to prevent a Republican turnaround from taking hold.

I need you to do everything you can to stop Romney from a takeover of the White House and Senate. Please contribute $5 immediately

Lovin’ it!! :-D

Sasha List on October 4, 2012 at 1:34 PM

A mean aggressive bulldozer is the minimum we’re going to need to battle AQ, the Muslim Brotherhood, Iran … so if Romney gives us that then we’re still in the game with a chance to win.

Gallup today: huge 6 point swing TO barackabama’s approval, but no change in the election spread. Tomorrow’s Rasmussen report should be interesting as it’ll include “the day after” sentiment.

My fear is that he was phoning it in because he’s got something planned to negate the election and he knows it. Yes, I hate him and distrust him that much to think that about the president.

This. I actually thought Romney missed opportunities yesterday (did not talk about Libya, the fact that Obama said Obamacare would not be over 900 billion – now projected at almost 3 trillion, 15 new taxes in Obamacare, etc..). If Gingrich was debating last night, what Romney did to Obama would have looked like childs play.

And if Obama thinks, like he said today, that the next debate on foreign policy will go much more smoothly for him, he is in for a rude awakening. Once he says OBL – Romney will say “yes, you did kill OBL. Stop spiking the football. And the only reason you did that was because you took the information gathered by the Bush policies, and purused them. Under your policies, we would have never gotten OBL.” After that, it will be round 2 of the beatdown.

If you’re not working your butt off to win this election, you’re out of your mind. And think of it as training because even a Romney win will require steadfast effort for the next decade or so to reverse this crap and deal with the new challenges.

it’s proly the indies that were targeted by that ad…the idiocy being that while he was assertive and in control of the narrative at all times during the last night debate, Mitt didn’t come across as aggressive at all, confident yes, specific, yes, but aggressive, neah…it’s really not his personality trait…

Obama seems to be in crybaby mode, munching his favorite snack of sour grapes for some comfort. If Michelle’s scowl from last night is an indicator, he didn’t get any sleep, either.

I can just imagine what the white House was like last night on the residential top floor.

Liam on October 4, 2012 at 1:40 PM

It was refreshing to see Romney’s hackles quiver slightly and see him stand up for himself and not allow himself to be bullied and herded like a sheep by Lehrer and the debate organizers.

I wasn’t even sure that Romney actually had hackles.

Now I am certain that he — in fact — does.

I made this comment last night but it’s fun to reiterate it here in the context of Mitt being “aggressive:” I think that telling the moderator that you plan to fire him and do away with his entire network is quite aggressive, yes.

And, sorry, I don’t think that’s a bad thing.

I love PBS (well, mainly Masterpiece Theatre and Mystery), but I don’t want it to be funded in any way by the government. If the lefties love public broadcasting as much as they say they do, they’ll pony up the dollars to save it. The broader point Mitt was making there quite aggressively, indeed, is that we are no longer funding many of our programs. China is. Is that the American way? Putting it in those terms was brilliant and I think eye-opening for many who forget the constant ticking of our debt clock.

Of course the Dems have this all mixed up.
It was not that Romney was a bully. He wasn’t, by a long shot.
The problem is that their guy was so, so weak that ANYONE arguing a point against him would have appeared to be aggressive.
It was THAT bad. And they have nothing else to say.

Jabberwock on October 4, 2012 at 1:41 PM

All this talk of high information voters and fact checkers ignores the most basic rule of debating, folks have to like you. This is where Romney shined. Lots more folks like him now than before the debate.

Trying to micro analyze what happened in the debate is a fools
errand. The big picture is Romney looked like a winner and made simple
easy to understand points. Obama looked like a LOSER.
