Today, as Mitt Romney becomes the latest Republican presidential candidate to kiss Donald Trump’s ring, the Democratic National Committee took the opportunity to reinforce their pathetic attempts to wage class warfare in the 2012 election. In an ad entitled “Trump, Romney; You’re Fired” [see ad below this post], Democrats attack both individuals as privileged rich men who merely victimize the middleclass in an attempt to gain more wealth.
In the first opening lines, the ad charges that both Romney and Trump have done well for themselves.
Stop! Stop right there.
Let’s analyze that.
Is it not un-American to attack someone because they have done well for themselves? Or is it that ideology the and Party that believes in that ideology which are un-American because both seek to demonize individuals for being successful and because both try to make others dislike people because of this success? Perhaps the DNC does not remember that 6 of the ten richest members of Congress are Democrats. Maybe they forget that people like former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, former Democrat presidential nominee John Kerry, as well as Senators Jay Rockerfeller, Diane Feinstien, Frank Lautenberg, and Richard Blumenthal, are just some of those who are the richest. But as we will see, wealth is not a bad thing if you’re a liberal. Only if you’re a Republican.
President Obama recently accused Republicans of charging him with waging class warfare. His response was that he is not waging war, he is actually just a warrior for the middleclass. Well the truth is, this ad makes it clear that the President and his Party are indeed waging class warfare. The first three lines of his Party’s new ad makes this painfully obvious. And as for being a “warrior for the middleclass”, President Obama is not fighting for the middleclass, he’s destroying the middleclass. Under his Administration, America’s poverty rate has increased to extraordinary highs that we haven’t seen in decades. Under his Administration, the middle class is seeing the longest recession in history and one of the highest long-term unemployment rates in our history. Under the Obama Administration, the middle class is seeing prices rise faster than the salaries of those who are lucky to have a job. And under leadership of President Obama, the middleclass has seen their interest on the national debt multiplied many times and while our national economy is growing by a painfully low rate of 1.7%, our national debt is growing at a rate of 15.21%. Is it any wonder why our credit rating has been downgraded?
With the points about President Obama and the left waging class war fare and who is really the middleclasses’s enemy, made clear, let’s go on with the rest of the ad.
With images of limousines and private jets, President Obama and his Party claim that the G.O.P. is promoting policies to help only the rich and corporations, and they resort to their typical scare tactics of senior citizens by claiming Republicans are trying to kill Social Security and Medicare. The DNC attack ad goes on to blame Republicans for cutting funds to schools, research development, and healthcare, and of eliminating investments that can help cretae jobs and keep America competitive.
These arguments may sound good on the surface. But unfortunately for the left and the President, they only sound good to the left, not mainstream America. Mainstream America has come to understand that the left is waging class warfare, scaring senior citizens, and creating policies that are making America less competitive in the world and preventing investment, economic growth, and job creation. Simply put, most Americans have come to accept that the Obama economy and the liberal policies that account for the Obama economy, are not working.
Americans have come to understand that when liberals mention a buzzword like “investment”, what they really mean is more stimulus spending and higher taxes. They understand that when the left talks about jobs, they mean government spending and when they throw out phrases like “save Social Social Security and Medicare, they mean deficit spending and an array of tax increases ranging from payroll taxes to death taxes and higher rates that no matter who they are raised on, are passed on to consumers.
Many have come to understand that Republicans seek not destroy Medicare or Social Security, but they do seek to insure that it is solvent for those who are on it now and that there is way for a form of the two to exist for future generations not yet paying in to those sytems yet. They realize that when Republicans talk about jobs, they are referring to self-sustaining private sector jobs that are created by private sector investment, and sustainable econmomic growth, while at the same time, trying to get government under control so that our economy is growing at a rate faster than our national debt.
So this new atack ad is preaching to the liberal choir. Like Jeremiah Wright preaching hatred to his flock, the DNC is preaching hate inspired rhetoric to its audience, an audience of liberals who they want to insure do not sit home on Election Day 2012 because they are embarrased by their Party’s performance.
The new liberal attack ad takes this opportunity to preach to their choir, by trying to tie Mitt Romney together with Donald Trump.
There are some negatives that do go with such a meeting. Personally, I despise Donald Trump. As I have written before, I believe he is an assclown. I believe he hurts the conservative cause more than helps it and given his record of business scandals and failures, I believe he is the very last person in the world that the United States should call upon to lead it. Ultimately, I would appreciate a Republican presidential candidate who stands up and makes that point. I would even be more appreciative of them if they refused to feed Trump’s ego by kissing his ring. But Trump has vowed to make his opinion known in 2012. He has even claimed that if he doesn’t like the Republican nominee, he will run for President himself. My opinion of Trump aside, many Americans are driven by the pop culture mentality that is ruled by reality TV programs such Trump’s The Apprentice (and let us not respect the despicable lowlifes of the Jersey Shore). So the reality is that between his money and popularity, no matter how I feel about Trump, he could be a factor in the 2012 election. Therefore, there is a line of candidates waiting to meet with Trump. Mitt Romney is merely the latest.
However, the Democratic National Committee sponsored web ad does not raise any of my concerns. It simply focusses on trying to associate Mitt Romney, a top contender for the Republican presidential nomination, not so much with Trump, but with rich people in general. In other words, they are trying desperatley to wage class warfare. This new ad merely uses Donald Trump, not for any of the positions that they may disagree with him on. They don’t use Trump because they want to focus on the issues or his record. They merely use him because he is rich and because his meeting with Mitt Romney provides the DNC with the opportunity to advance their class warfare campaign against a potential opponent by demonizing the wealthy and highlighting Romney’s wealth through guilt by association ad.
Yet as I told you earlier in this article, demonizig the rich or those who are well off becuase they have been successful is only bad if you are Republican. Need proof? Do you think the D.N.C. will be running an ad featuring Warren Buffett as the speaker at a Chicago-area fundraiser benefitting President Barack Obama’s re-election bid on October 27th? I doubt it.
