The Romney campaign needs to start the narrative that the Obama administration has been lying to the American people all along—the attack on our consulate in Libya being the latest example.
Romney needs to come out and say as president I will never lie to you. I may tell you things that are hard to hear but it will always be the truth.
An ad could list all of Obama’s biggest lies of the past year using the most damning images possible and ending with the Libyan attack. It’s time to take the gloves off.

So much is being made of the two speeches being given right now. I guess people are trying to use their proximity in time to some advantage, one way or the other. Obama and Romney are in Ohio, a battleground state, putting forth their reasons why each should be the President of the United States.
I think the Right has been concerned all along about anyone’s ability to challenge Obama’s glib speaking ability. The only reason Newt Gingrich stayed in the nomination process as long as he did was, even though he gave good speech, he was a petulant, spiteful history professor and Romney can speak pretty well in his own right.
He can’t give an extemporaneous speech to save his life (compare Romney’s speech today sans teleprompter with Obama’s scripted ‘rip and read’) and his message always blames someone else for the situation he finds himself in.
This is the first of many head to head speeches the two men will give. Open your eyes and ears America…don’t be fooled again.

So the lies and distortion are in full swing. The liberal press is out to say and do anything to keep their guy in office. A ‘Breaking News’ tweet has the editor of the Hartford Courant tweeting; Obama’s lead over rival Mitt Romney grows due to increased support from independent voters – @Reuters / Ipsos poll
But just this morning I read a story about the latest Rassmussen poll that puts Romney up by 5 points and Dick Morris, that political gadfly, was on Fox’s Hannity last night swearing up and down the polls are all skewed and Romney is leading with likely voters, Independents and of course Republicans.
I tend to believe Rassmussen and Morris, not because they are conservative but because Reuters is a totally biased news organization that supplies stories all over the world with their agenda pasted to every story.
Once we defeat Obama, we’re going after the liberal media…they’re going down.

A big night for Mitt Romney. Winning a close one is his home state of Michigan was far more important than the substantial victory he won in Arizona. The optics of losing your home state would have added an unwanted and unneeded complication to an already hard fight. A fight that has been made difficult by Romney himself. As I said in an earlier post, prior to the primary season kicking off, I believed Romney only had to do two things to lock up the nomination and the presidency; admit RomneyCare was a mistake and pick the right VP running mate.
So far Romney has defended his Massachusetts healthcare mandate and that has killed him with the conservatives. Yes he says he will repeal Obamacare and while that’s enough for me to move on with the issue, it has stuck in the craw of the Tea Party and other hard core conservatives.
Romney’s calculated plan to stay as centrist as possible while trying to win the Right’s nomination is a risky proposition. He is well aware that everything he says and does during the nomination race can and will come back to bite him when Obama unleashes the hounds. Romney and his people know he needs the Independents to break his way by at least 10% if he’s going to have a chance at beating Obama.
It’s a precarious tightrope walk indeed. The fact he hasn’t broken out against the republican challengers is testimony to how close he is to that line. But that is politics. As ugly and unseemly a profession, when done correctly, it can be an art form.
So is Mitt painting a masterpiece or a clever forgery?
I recommended Paul Ryan as a running mate in my earlier post. My first choice, Marco Rubio, had already come out strongly against accepting anyone’s VP nod so I left him out. But this is war and we need the best of the best on the field when the battle to beat Obama begins. I think a Romney/Rubio ticket is our best team. I really can’t find any negatives. Rubio brings so much to the table and fills the weak chinks in Romney’s armor (Hispanic vote, Tea Party vote, guaranteed Florida win). Add the fact they both are well spoken, exude confident leadership and they and their families are easy on the eyes and you’ve got a ticket that must be giving David Axelrod some sleepless in Chicago nights.
It’s never over till it’s over but when Mitt accepts the nomination in Tampa this summer and names his running mate, we’ll know if this work in progress is the real deal or just a fancy paint-by- numbers facsimile.
Don’t let this art critic down Mitt.

Here’s more proof that the right is seriously warming to Romney being the Republican nominee. When articles justifying someone’s position get written by seriously-to-the-right writers, the fat lady is singing.

I’ve always been fascinated with nature and the truly amazing intricacies God has created. Take the onion for instance—awesomely designed with delicate layers that when peeled reveal another perfect layer in a seemingly endless source of wonder. So as the Republican primary race begins to unfold and reveal it’s intricate layers lying below the surface, we begin to see what’s truly hiding under those many layers of conservative’s skin.
Mitt Romney has the extreme right in the party in a lather. They cannot fathom a Romney nomination. But it is two different factions within that far right that are all hot and bothered. One are the Evangelicals who, save Jesus himself, wouldn’t be conservative enough to carry their torch. The other are the Tea Party conservatives who’s smaller government/less taxes mantra is at risk with Romney’s past squishiness with big government mandates.
Each group is reported to be huddling in the attempt to derail Romney’s march toward the nomination. And this is exactly what the liberals want.
Well here’s my two cents. STFU you two and stand behind the man who will defeat Obama! And that’s coming from a Tea Party loyalist who stood in protest to the big government take over that our Socialist president started in ’08.
The reality is America is not ready to elect a bible thumping candidate who makes abortion their primary campaign plank. Nor will America elect a Tea Party loyalist who is perceived to cling to his gun and bible and the Constitution. No, it will be a candidate who is perceived to be more moderate, whether that’s fact or not. Look, Obama hoodwinked a majority of voters who were either too gullible or too stupid to see what he was really about. I say Go Mitt go! Last night after his win in New Hampshire, Romney delivered the most conservative friendly speech I have heard to date. It was excellently written and delivered. Is he exactly what I want in a conservative candidate for president? No, but he’s real close.
So I say to those who feel the need to bash Romney and kavetch that he’s not a true conservative, as you peel that onion looking for your layer, do it under running water; it’s guaranteed to stop the crying.
