New Romney Ad Sets the Romney Record on Abortion Straight

   Bookmark and Share   As the left continues to use Obama campaign Co-Chair Eva Longoria to lie about Mitt Romney and to try to have female voters buy in to their claim that Romney and the G.O.P. are waging a war on women, Mitt Romney has released another simple but very effective ad that is designed to the set his record straight on the issue of abortion. (See ad in the video at the bottom of this post).

The 30 second spot uses a woman voter named Sarah Minton to explain not only that Romney doesn’t oppose the use of contraception, and that he supports the use of abortion as an option in cases of rape, incest, or to save a mother’s life, it also takes an approach that appeals to women who may be traditional Democrats and are uncomfortable voting for a Republican.

The Romney campaign has long ago seen evidence of the fact that many Democrats, including Democrat women, are unhappy with the job Barack Obama has done, but that they don’t feel good about voting for a Republican.  So for at least three months now, the Romney-Ryan ticket has shaped and targeted messages to such people that offered them a sense of it being okay to vote for someone other than Barack Obama in 2012.  Mainly by pressing the point that they are not alone in their feelings because there are  millions of Americans who feel the same way…. like Sarah Minton.

Script of the ad entitled “Sarah”

You know those ads that saying that Mitt Romney would ban all abortions and contraception seemed a bit extreme.

So I looked in to it.

Turns out Romney doesn’t oppose contraception at all.

In fact he thinks abortion should be an option in cases of rape, incest, or to save a mother’s life.

This issue is important to me.  But I’m more concerned with the debt our children will be left with.

I voted for President Obama last time but we just can’t afford four more years.

While the ad is simple, it is also straightforward and it leaves the targeted voters with at least a subconscious understanding that President Obama really doesn’t deserve their vote a second time.

Time for Eva Longoria to Resign from the Obama Campaign of Hatred and Hypocrisy

The intolerant liberal base of the Democrat Party has consistently demonstrated that they have an uncanny propensity for hypocrisy.  They historically preach the virtues of tolerance yet they remain the individuals who happen to be the least tolerant of any differences of opinion.  It is the type of hypocrisy and political insincerity which leads the left to claim that Republicans are waging a war on women because they refuse to allow the government to fund infanticide.   But the latest example of liberal hypocrisy has reared its ugly head in of all places, the leadership team of the Obama campaign, where Obama campaign co-chair Eva Longoria has demonstrated a level of intolerance and disrespect that any responsible political campaign can not and should not be able to ignore.

Earlier today, Longoria issued the following tweet on Twitter;

The comment was actually a retweet… a reposting of someone else’s tweet.

After news of Longoria’s message broke, she tried to wiggle her way out of  her vulgar, bigoted message by tweeting the following;

“Is anyone else’s twitter bugging out? There are things in my timeline I didn’t  retweet today. Hmmm? Standby trying to fix!”.

So this sick and stupid, lying liberal Obama campaign chairperson actually panicked after revealing her true beliefs and attempted to pull an Anthony Weiner by suggesting someone hacked into her account and posted the offensive message instead of her.

Realizing that was not really a plausible excuse, Longoria then went on to try to claim that she does not hold the opinion expressed by her retweet.  She tried to claim that she never calls conservative women  names and that she retweeted the offensive message because she believes that everyone has a right to have their opinions expressed on her Twitter account.  Unfortunately that excuse doesn’t wash.  If Longoria did not believe the sentiments expressed in that twitter message, than she should not have promoted it.  Period.

But since Longoria took that approach,  I took the opportunity to promptly tweet my opinion on Longoria’s Twitter account.

It read as follows;

Now you might take offense to my reply to Longoria and you can question its appropriateness but if you do than you better be demanding that Eva Longoria either be fired from her position as a co-chair of the President’s campaign or that she immediately resign from the position.  If you think my response to Longoria was inappropriate, than you must feel the same way about Longoria’s initial comment.  But the biggest difference here is that I am not representing anyone other than myself.  In the case of Longoria she is representing the President.  As such, her claim that women and minorities who have a political opinion that is different from her own are stupid, is a sentiment that the President and his campaign must promptly disavow.

That is especially the case since this is not the first time, Longoria crossed the line.

During the vice presidential debate, Longoria posted the following tweet;

So here you have a representative of the Obama campaign calling Paul Ryan  Joe Biden’s “bitch”.  And what was the reaction to it?  A silence so deafening that it is unclear which was more offensive, the original statement or the unwillingness of the President’s campaign to disavow themselves from the message or the person who sent the message.

This latest episode comes at a time when it is becoming alarmingly clear to most people that the troubled Obama-Biden campaign is doubling down on their attempts to win the election by motivating minorities through a campaign of divisiveness that is driven by inciting racist sentiments among blacks and Hispanics.  As pointed out in the post and video seen here, Democrats are increasingly trying to play the race card in the presidential election.  It is a desperate last ditch attempt by the left to make sure that blacks and other minorities show up to the polls on Election Day 2012 and vote for President Obama in the same record numbers that they did in 2008.   And that was the only reason why Eva Longoria, a Hispanic actress with a degree in Latin studies and kinesiology, was chosen for the political role she is now playing the President’s reelection effort.  But now Longoria has gone too far.  She has exhibited a level of unacceptable and intolerable political bigotry that has essentially written off the value of any woman and minority who does not hold the same opinions as her own.

The Obama campaign tried to chastise Mitt Romney for once stating that he can’t care about the 47% who will not vote for him.  Of course Romney said that in the context of a strategic political reality which meant that he will not be able to persuade the approximate 47% of voters who are committed to supporting President Obama.   But liberals intentionally took the words out of context and tried to claim that if elected President, Romney won’t care about nearly half of the American population.  Well now the question the Obama Administration must deal with is whether or not they actually want the record to show that they think women and minorities are stupid unless they support four more years of Barack Obama’s failed policies.

Until they denounce Longoria and her remarks and dump her from their campaign, the record will show that the Obama-Biden campaign does indeed agree with Longoria’s remarks.

Meanwhile, this whole incident is a distraction from the real issues but it is a distraction which is the result of the Obama strategy to distract and divide Americans.  The Obama campaign and it’s surrogates are hell-bent on distracting us from the Obama record and dividing us by race and ethnicity.  It is strategy that is apparently beginning to backfire on Obama but it is all the President has left in his arsenal.

Obama Fundraising Email Tries To Make Up For Romney Raising More Money Than Him In May

 Bookmark and Share  May marked the the first month in the 2012 election cycle where Mitt Romney hauled in more campaign dollars than did President Barack Obama. Up to now, the President’s prodigious fundraising machine raised monthly totals that surpassed the amounts brought in by any other individual who is or was running for the presidency in 2012, and  Team Obama did not like its streak being broken. So, the Obama campaign fired off the following fundraising email that tries to motivate his forces and have them reach deeper in to their pockets for the President.

The solicitation attempts to rile up the Obama base by suggesting that Romney’s money is coming mainly from special interest and big business while Obama is receiving the financial support of the little guy, the average Joe. But in the email attributed to Obama campaign manager Jim Messina, neglects to mention that most of Obama’s money is coming from 30 different billionaires and many of the corporate interests that he has bailed out with taxpayers dollars and has given high power government positions to on assorted commissions and panels of federal influence.  It also does not account for the dozens of contests that Team Obama has run by soliciting small donations in amounts of $2 or $3 in order to have a shot at winning something like a dinner with stars such as Eva Longoria.  Romney has run similar contests too, but not nearly on the same scale that the president has and without using Hollywood and pop culture figures like lottery prizes.

In their solicitation, the President’s campaign also fails to mention such fundraising events as “Barack on Broadway”, where the average Joe was able to drop $2,500 a ticket, or a recent star studded NYC  diner at $40,000 a person.

Those facts aside, Romney and the G.O.P. did raise more than $76 million last month, $16 million more than Barack Obama’s campaign.  But that could have more to do with the fact dismal employment numbers and continued troubling economic indicator have dulled the “average Joe’s” enthusiasm for the job that President Obama is doing.

As for Republicans and Mitt Romney, the latest figure represents a significant increase in fundraising and more importantly, that increased flow of financial support is a dramatic  indication of just how well Romney is consolidating support from within a long divided field of Republicans who were competing against Mitt for the nomination not so long ago.    He and the GOP brought in $40 million in April, just short of the $43.6 million President Obama and his party raised that month.

But liberals fear not.  Billion Buck Barry will do his best to keep his promise of raising $1 billion dollars for his reelection effort.  And he will do so without a single soul on the left accusing him “buying the election” like Mitt Romney will undoubtedly be accused of.
