This comes after America has been told that the polls do not matter, higher gas prices are better for us, ObamaCare would lower health costs, green energy would create millions of jobs, al-Qaeda was on the run… The story was published today: “Romney victory would vindicate right wing smears of Obama.”
LAT: “It only starts with the kind of campaign Romney has run. He and his “super PAC” allies used a mountain of dollars to produce unending waves of attack ads that swamped the messages of his Republican primary rivals, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum. In the general election, Romney cranked it up a notch. President Obama’s own money machine paid for a slew of hard-hitting attacks against Romney that employed exaggeration and selective facts, but none of the Obama ads reached the same low level of deception as those put up by Romney as he zeroed in on the president.
Of course, disgustingly misleading attack ads have become ubiquitous at all levels of politics this year. Whether Romney wins or loses, that is unlikely to change. Still, seeing a campaign for president propelled to victory on so many outright falsehoods cannot be good for the republic.
That would be the lesser of the ill effects of a Romney win, though. Much worse is that the right wing’s broader onslaught of derision and lies against the president that began even before he took office would have achieved its goal. Barack Obama may, or may not, deserve re-election. But no man with as much decency as Obama exhibits in both his private and public life deserves the contempt that has been dumped on him by arch-conservative ideologues, talk show ranters and Internet goons.”
Tomorrow Trump’s $5 Million offer to Obama ends, who does not win if Obama accepts?
