Re: Mitt Romney's Indictment of Obama Record


Dear Newsmax Reader:

Now with just a week before D-Day -- our national election -- the key swing states are showing Obama is in deep trouble.

There are real indications that Obama's camp is simply abandoning significant ad buys in Florida, Virginia and N. Carolina.

Remember those states they said were "in the bag" for Obama?

Now, they are pulling up their stakes and moving dwindling campaign funds into a handful of swing states -- states Romney is gaining in.

I predicted weeks ago that this would happen.

Obama simply can't win a national election and he can't win all the key "swing" states his campaign targeted.

Frankly, we have Barack Obama on the run.

Typically, Democrats hold a big advantage over the Republicans among women voters. The pundits calls this the "gender gap."

But the AP poll released Thursday had a political shocker: Mitt Romney is tied with Obama among women voters at 47 percent!

This is stunning news. Obama can't win re-election without holding a majority of women!

He is in deep trouble and the Obama camp knows it.

And one reason why are turning the corner is that Super PAC for America is holding Obama's feet to the fire.

This is the Super PAC headed by its national chair Mike Reagan.

Mike has brought together some of the great minds of the GOP, including people who helped his Dad win two landslide elections, to make sure that Mitt Romney wins on Election Day and that Barack Obama is put into early retirement.

Mike asked me to serve as chief strategist for Super PAC for America and to create the TV ads that can turn the tide for Mitt.

We are doing just that -- thanks to the tens of thousands of donors who are supporting Super PAC.

Our first Super PAC ad is a powerful expose of Obama's dismal job record.

It is powerful in its simplicity: a black screen that lists Obama's dismal economic numbers -- followed by chants of "Four more years!" A voice comes on at the end of the screen and says: "You've got to be kidding!"

When I watched Mitt Romney at the second debate, I saw him use the same focus.

I was so impressed with Mitt's comments about Obama I created a powerful new ad for Super PAC -- using Mitt's very own words.

In fact, Mitt's remarks may prove to be the turning point of the campaign.

They are the equivalent of Ronald Reagan's 1980 debate line that crushed Jimmy Carter: "Are you better off than you were four years ago."

You can see the new Super PAC ad by Going Here Now.

Right now, we have our first Super PAC ad in 5 key swing states -- Ohio, Virginia, Colorado, Florida, and Iowa.

We'd like to continue this effort and grow the campaign into other potential swing states, such as Nevada and New Hampshire.

But we urgently need funds to do so -- if you can help please Donate Here Now

I believe that the final holdouts -- the swing voters who have yet to decide -- will fall overwhelmingly into Mitt's column.

But we need to keep the focus on Obama and his failure to lead, his failure to perform, his failure to make America's economy grow.

You probably heard Mitt's eloquent and persuasive case made during the second debate.

Here's what Mitt Romney said:

"I can tell you that if you were to elect President Obama, you know what you’re going to get. You’re going to get a repeat of the last four years. . .

"He said that by now we’d have unemployment at 5.4 percent. The difference between where it is and 5.4 percent is 9 million Americans without work.

"I wasn’t the one that said 5.4 percent. This was the president’s plan — didn’t get there.

"He said he would have by now put forward a plan to reform Medicare and Social Security because he pointed out they’re on the road to bankruptcy. He would reform them. He’d get that done.

"He hasn’t even made a proposal on either one.

"He said in his first year he’d put out an immigration plan that would deal with our immigration challenges — didn’t even file it.

"This is a president who has not been able to do what he said he’d do. He said that he’d cut in half the deficit. He hasn’t done that either. In fact, he doubled it.

"He said that by now middle-income families would have a reduction in their health insurance premiums by $2,500 a year. It’s gone up by $2,500 a year. And if 'Obamacare' is passed — or implemented, it’s already been passed — if it’s implemented fully, it’ll be another $2,500 on top.

"The middle class is getting crushed under the policies of a president who has not understood what it takes to get the economy working again. He keeps saying, look, I’ve created 5 million jobs.

"That’s after losing 5 million jobs. The entire record is such that the unemployment has not been reduced in this country.

"The unemployment, the number of people who are still looking for work, is still 23 million Americans.

"There are more people in poverty — one out of six people in poverty.

"How about food stamps? When he took office, 32 million people were on food stamps; today 47 million people are on food stamps.

"How about the growth of the economy? It’s growing more slowly this year than last year and more slowly last year than the year before.

"The president wants to do well; I understand. But the policies he’s put in place, from 'Obamacare' to Dodd-Frank to his tax policies to his regulatory policies — these policies combined have not let this economy take off and grow like it could have."

Wow! What a powerful indictment of Obama's record -- and spoken in a nonjudgmental way!

I believe if Americans hear this, and think about it, they will vote with us and Mitt Romney will become our next president.

But I need your help to make sure this happens.

Right now, Mike Reagan and Super PAC for America are making last-minute decisions to grow our major media offensive against Obama.

Any help you can give will make a big difference -- please Donate Here Now.

Super PAC wants to continue in the key swing states and put more ads on the air.

We also want to share these ads across the Internet to millions of Internet users who will be using the Web to help them make up their minds.

If you have already donated, please donate again by Going Here Now

And remember, the Super PAC for America can accept corporate and personal donations of unlimited amount.

Frankly, if you sent $100,000 it could be decisive in some of these key swing states, especially where polls show the race will be close.

But even donations of $1000, $500, $250 or $100 can make a huge difference.

And thousands of people even making $25 or $50 donations can help us win medium-sized markets in key swing states.

Paul Ryan said today "this is the most important election of our lifetime."

He added we are deciding the "destiny of our country."

I couldn't agree more. I know you do too.

So please act today -- Donate Here Now.

Thank you.

Yours for America,
Dick Morris

P.S. . If you donate today and I receive your financial commitment, I can push this new powerful ad featuring Mitt into key swing states. Millions can be affected. But Super PAC needs your help today. Please Donate Here Now

I don't know what's going to happen, and I don't think anyone knows.

But I'm certainly not getting my insight from a political hack who has been caught up in prostitution, can't pay his taxes and has confessed before to fabricating his claims.

You're going to have to do better than that -- or at least try.

As awful as your story is, I think it's important to remember that such things are taking place in all countries because of the economic situation over the last four years or so. Someone posted recently a table of figures that showed that american unemployment was a few per cent higher now than when Obama took office. In the same time period, unemployment has risen approximately 70% in the UK, so when compared to other countries the USA has faired well during the recession and economic crisis.


Where are you getting the UK stats from? The figures I've seen show that the unemployment rate was 6.7% in January 2009 and is now 7.9%, which is a rise of around 18%.


September 2008:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/7620451.stm

October 2012:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/10604117

1.71 million to 2.5 million is approximate 70% rise. The calculations were done in the same way on the american figures posted here by another board member a couple of weeks back.



There was a steep rise up to January 2009, so my figures hadn't taken account of that.

Funny thing is, the terrible unemployment total that you highlight is apparently happening at the same time that we are experiencing a record number of people in employment. Don't you just love stats?

Terrific methodology! It's almost like putting on the blindfold, having people spin you around, and you PIN THE TAIL ON THE DONKEY! :D

Are any of our friends across the pond voting for the opposing party that got their vote four years ago?

Re: i am having trouble deciding which way to vote - help

I still find it quite remarkable that many Romney supporters seem to be voting against what they don't want, rather than for what they do want. It's almost a case of "I don't like him, so I have to vote for him", rather than "this man's policies are something I believe in". It seems an extremely negative situation.
