Obama and Romney present: Their closing arguments

posted at 12:01 pm on November 2, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

There comes a moment in every campaign when the time for thinking up new memes and lines of attack is over (leastaways, one would hope — I’d hardly put anything past the Obama campaign at this point) and to finally put into succinct words, what’s this all been about? Overarchingly, why should you vote for me over the other guy? While they’ll both continue to campaign in swing states over the weekend and through Monday, they’ll be locking up their various theses and supporting arguments and going for a strong, loud n’ proud finish — and they both laid out their visions in dueling op-eds today, via CNN.

Barack Obama hit on many of the major themes (I think we’re supposed to interpret them as ‘achievements’ or something) he’s touted this long while: “Saving” us from an economic depression (rather than keeping us meandering along in a near-recession), Osama bin Laden is dead, taking credit for decreased reliance on foreign oil that isn’t his, “fair shares” and class-warmongering, Romney wants to “take us back to the policies that got us here in the first place” (plus a Bill Clinton shout-out, whoop whoop), etcetera:

In the closing weeks of this campaign, Governor Romney has started calling himself an agent of change. And I’ll give him one thing — offering another $5 trillion tax cut weighted towards the wealthy, $2 trillion in defense spending our military didn’t ask for, and more power for big banks and insurance companies is change, all right. But it’s not the change we need. …

Change is an America where people of every age have the skills and education that good jobs require. We took on banks that had been overcharging for student loans for decades, and made college more affordable for millions. …

Change is an America where we reduce our deficit by cutting spending where we can, and asking the wealthiest Americans to go back to the income tax rates they paid when Bill Clinton was president. I’ve worked with Republicans to cut a trillion dollars of spending, and I’ll do more. I’ll work with anyone of any party to move this country forward. …

The folks at the very top don’t need another champion in Washington.

…Yes, because if anybody knows about reaching across the aisle and producing a responsible budget, it must be Barack Obama. (Also, a small but disconcerting sidebar: “We took on banks that had been overcharging for student loans for decades.” So, President Obama presumes to know what the right amount for banks to charge for student loans is? That… is scary.)

Mitt Romney, meanwhile, focused on his five major pro-growth policies, emphasized his record of bipartisanship, and reiterated that we don’t have to settle for the economic quagmire in which we’ve been living these past four years:

America is a land of opportunity. But lately, for too many Americans, opportunity has not exactly come knocking. We’ve been mired in an economic slowdown that has left millions of our fellow citizens unemployed. …

It hasn’t always been this way. It certainly doesn’t have to be this way in the future.  …

We will restore fiscal sanity to Washington by bringing an end to the federal spending and borrowing binge that in just four years has added more debt held by the public than almost all previous administrations combined. We will put America on track to a balanced budget by eliminating unnecessary programs, by sending programs back to states where they can be managed with less abuse and less cost, and by shrinking the bureaucracy of Washington. …

Nothing is ever easy in Washington, but these goals are rooted in bipartisan agreement, and I will work with members of both parties to accomplish them.  As governor of a state that was overwhelmingly Democratic, I was always ready to reach across the aisle and I can proudly point to the results. I’ve learned that when we come together to solve problems in a practical spirit, we can accomplish miracles.

Cut, print, that’s a wrap. Romney, by the way, is delivering the speech-version of his closing argument in Wisconsin this morning — I’ll post some vid later.

Ok. So 91% of those polled know all about Benghazi. Of that, 44% are sure Obama mislead them. 47% not sure if it was deliberate or just incompetence.

91% care about Benghazi enough to have an opinion on it, none of them think Obama did the right thing.

HumpBot Salvation on November 2, 2012 at 3:13 PM

And the lap-dog NYT continues to ply ambiguous memes in PA :

Over the last several days, with polls showing Mr. Obama’s edge in the state narrowing, Republicans have sprung into action and forced the Democrats to spend resources here that could have gone toward more competitive battleground states.

Conservative super PACs dusted off old advertisements that had not been shown in weeks and shipped them to local television stations from Scranton to Pittsburgh. They ordered millions of dollars in airtime.

And overnight the race here became the most expensive test yet of whether Republicans and their armies of cash-flush outside groups could unsettle the race at the last minute.

Unsettle the race at the last minute? Um, the Boy King seems to be in charge of the unsettling himself:with the lead narrowing in the last several days.

kingsjester on November 2, 2012 at 3:18 PM

I hate to tell you, but the evidence you gave only indicates a tightening of the race, not Romney overcoming. Without some other movement, that still adds up to an Obama win.

Now, given what we’ve heard about high-propensity Dems voting early, while low-propensity GOPers were also voting early… that would make up the difference.

And probably then some…

Unfortunately, looks like democrats will continues to control the senate and Romney and we have to deal with a d0uchbag like Harry Reid at least until 2014.

Scott Brown will likely lose in the hyper-partisan MA where they fear the loss of Senate control in case of a Romney presidency.

Mourdock is running such a lackluster campaign and his statement in the debate is sinking him

Rasmussen he is behind by 3 (was up 5 before)
DePauw Donnelly 47 Mourdock 36, -11 (was -2 before)

Losing the IN seat will make the prospect of senate control impossible. And Harry Reid and the dems will bury any attempt to repeal ObamaCare, and other reforms in the committees.

pambi on November 2, 2012 at 4:26 PM

Seriously, with the release of the jobs report, the 2012 campaign is now frozen in place.

You can scream all you want, but:

*The President is ahead in Ohio.

*He’s ahead, tied or very close in every other battleground state.

*He has multiple paths to 270 that Romney doesn’t have.

*In the aftermath of Sandy (nature’s October surprise), Romney has been hiding his position on FEMA, while the President has embraced his own.

*Voters (not only in Ohio) are smart enough to see through Romney’s crass lies about Chrysler moving jobs to China. Total backfire.

*Efforts to flog Benghazi into a campaign issue have failed miserably. The investigation will reveal what happened after the election.

The President will continue to make a strong closing case for his reelection over the weekend. Romney has nothing to offer because he believes in nothing.

Four more years!

*The President is ahead in Ohio.

*He’s ahead, tied or very close in every other battleground state.

*He has multiple paths to 270 that Romney doesn’t have.

*In the aftermath of Sandy (nature’s October surprise), Romney has been hiding his position on FEMA, while the President has embraced his own.

*Voters (not only in Ohio) are smart enough to see through Romney’s crass lies about Chrysler moving jobs to China. Total backfire.

*Efforts to flog Benghazi into a campaign issue have failed miserably. The investigation will reveal what happened after the election.

The President will continue to make a strong closing case for his reelection over the weekend. Romney has nothing to offer because he believes in nothing.

Four more years!

Btw, I tried to early vote in Florida today too and the lines were out the door around the building. Didn’t have time. I’m in a mostly Republican county. Ftr, I prefer voting on Election Day but will be out of town. Why were all these people early voting anyways?

He will actually have to get a REAL JOB…the good news for him is that Mitt Romney will fix the mess these communist/crony socialists have foisted on the American People and make it easier for chumpThreads to actually find a decent job instead of being paid to troll internet sites as hopenchange fades away

3 more days…

1. Nope. Tied and all the momentum is swinging Romney’s way. You can see my post to gumby…Obama is done in OH.

2. Obama has already lost CO, NC, FL, VA. He is on his way to losing IA and PA. If you consider MN and MI swing states now…knock yourself out.

3. FEMA has proven to be the ineffective bureacracy they have always been. Folks screaming for help and dining in dumpsters make a great visual for the effectiveness of FEMA and Obama.

4. Voters have already seen the crassness of Obama bailing out the auto union slugs and leaving the taxpayers on the hook for $25 BILLION. All fact checkers confirm Romney is correct. The owners of Chrysler confirm they will be building jeeps in China. Jeeps that should have been built in the US…since FIAT got Chrysler for a song and left taxpayers holding the bag.

5. Obama’s efforts to stonewall and hide the truth are continuing to come unraveled. 44% of voters and 57% of independents think Obama is a LIAR. So stick with that…the TRUTH will come out and it won’t be good for Obama…maybe President Romney will pardon him.

4 more days…and your Mocha Messiah is going down in flames.

Sucks to be you.

Not one poll has Romney in the lead in the important states!

Not one.

Even Rasmussen can’t bring themselves to cook the numbers in Romney’s favor.

On the last weekend of the campaign, I’d rather have my guy ahead across the board, than the other guy.

Of course, you Romney supporters would like that for your guy, but you can’t say that, can you?

See you next Tuesday.

I don’t think it is political to say a guy like Romney would be so much better for the relief efforts. I know the Olympics aren’t the same, but he has handled things on such a big scale.

tomas on November 2, 2012 at 4:54 PM

Now don’t get upset that there were zero mentions of foreign policy – Romney knows everybody can get his views on it by listening to Obama’s.

americanmama on November 2, 2012 at 4:37 PM

The legislature’s tacked on several rather wordy amendment proposals, so it takes longer to read and fill out the ballot. So, the voting officials have been encouraging early and mail-in voting to lighten the load on Election Day.

It’s okay for you to be upset that Romney sold you all out and took a giant leap to the centre and agreed with Obama on most foreign policy topics. I would be annoyed too. He treated the base like chumps.

I don’t get the impression that Romney’s strong suit is foreign policy. At any rate, I can’t imagine how it could be even just as bad as what passes for foreign policy under this administration.

It must be difficult for you to come to terms with your candidate agreeing so much with Obama about it a the foreign policy debate.

Thanks for confirming you are a dumbarse.

Romney wouldn’t leave 4 Americans to die while he jets off to a campaign fundraiser with Beyonce.

That’s good enough for me.

Oh and thought you libtards were claiming Romney was just another cowboy with a hair trigger. You can’t have it both ways.

And finally, Obama has the glowing endorsements of Ahmadinejad, Putin, Chavez, Castro and the Chinese. Guess they think Romney’s foreign policy is just like Obama’s as well.

Stop be=clowning yourself. Or at least use your customary ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ah hahaha ha ha hahaha haha ha.
