Since being assailed by millions of dollars of Romney ads, he has unfortunately had no choice but to go on the offensive. I don’t like it, but I don’t blame him either.
The Romney campaign is precisely what is wrong with politics. He can’t really run on his record, since it casts doubt on his “conservative” claims, so his entire strategy is to distort facts and historical record to destroy the other candidates, primarily Gingrich. On a side note, isn’t it interesting that Romney’s campaign mirrors that of President Obama? Same strategy. My record sucks, so I’ll trash my opponent.
This is why I’ve come to dislike Romney more and more. Yes, I’m a Gingrich supporter. Yes, I’m aware that by no means is he perfect. Many of his statements are out there and not always popular, but at least you know that he tells it like it is. Many have attempted to paint him as a corrupt insider, even though there is ample evidence to the contrary.
I am also, however, acutely aware that Romney is nothing but a phony politician that will say anything to get elected, as he is proving more and more every day with his cheap attack ads. He’s John McCain 2.0. How did that work out? Do we really want to settle for a milquetoast candidate in a pathetic, status quo compromise because we’re so scared of fighting for our principles? We already ran a “lesser of two evils” candidate and we got our asses kicked. Romney is more of the same.
For those reasons and more, I decided to have a little fun at the Governor’s expense (the last two are my personal favorites). Enjoy.
