If you take the 2012 presidential campaign seriously, you know that the Obama people are willing to do whatever it takes to win. I refer to them as the Chicago Mafia. No, they do not use guns to attack all opponents. Instead, they make verbal attacks.
At present Mitt Romney is on the defensive. Instead of talking about the economy, he is trying unsuccessfully to defend attacks that he is a liar and hater of the middle class.
When it comes to Bain Capital, the Obama forces paint him as one who has callously sent thousands of American jobs overseas. Romney is portrayed as being openly hostile to the middle class.
When Romney worked at Bain, he did outsource some jobs to other countries. However, he did that to make Bain more competitive and productive. Any smart business executive wants to make money. Romney did not intentionally hurt anyone.
Again, he did it to make money.
Yes, Romney pays very little in federal taxes because his income is primarily from capital gains and stock dividends. He is certainly not breaking the law. The Obama camp erroneously tells us that Romney is doing something immoral. They make him out to be a villain.
Every day the Obama people are making attacks against Romney. Are they going to stop? Of course not. Their political goal is to attack long and hard. The longer the campaign goes, the more they will attack.
Many Democrats love to see a bellicose Obama. Charles Barkley, the well-known professional athlete, is encouraging the president to get even meaner. He says he likes to see a president willing to throw punches from every direction.
Bill Maher, the comedian who recently gave the president $1 million, is likewise behind Obama’s vitriolic attacks on Romney. People all over Hollywood are monetarily supporting the dirty politics of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, the brains behind the Chicago Mafia.
I still believe Romney will win because of the terrible economy. However, he is going to come out of this battered, bloodied, and bruised. This will be one of the dirtiest campaigns in U.S. history.
In 1964 Lyndon Johnson beat Barry Goldwater by verbally attacking him every day. Johnson never cared about the truth. He wanted only to win, whatever the cost. I still remember that brutal campaign. The people running the Obama campaign have spent a lot of time studying and implementing the Johnson mud-slinging strategy.
