Michael Tomasky over at the Daily Beast offers an article on Mitt Romney that is hard to argue with, particularly if you supported Rick Santorum or Newt Gingrich in the primary.
Don’t forget, finally, that Romney is pretty adept at character assassination himself. What do you call it when in those crucial primaries that he barely won against Rick Santorum—Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin—he was outspending Santorum six and nine and 12 to one with incredibly negative ads? Or the “tsunami of sleaze,” as my colleague John Avlon put it at the time that the Romney campaign dumped on Newt Gingrich in Florida, where 92 percent of the aired TV ads were negative? Those gutter attacks, aired over and over and over, are, it is worth remembering, the main reason the guy is the nominee. He was tied or behind in all those states until he emptied the trash. He wasn’t winning them over with his wit.
He’s got a point there, huh? But hey, what is this about destroying human embryos? How’s that for tyranny? You want an example of tyranny? There it is. How big are you? How helpless are you? If you’re not big enough or vocal enough, you could be just as dead under a Romney administration as under the Obama administration. Romney, like Obama, is a tyrant. It is what it is.
But, you see, there is SO MUCH MONEY IN BABY-KILLING, folks, and because it’s MONEY and because the election is about “the economy”, then we baby lovers should just shut up, right? Um…no. I’m not shutting up. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are both tyrants. If you are okay with baby-killing, you’re a tyrant.
Think about it, folks. You don’t do what Mitt Romney did to Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich unless you’re in the pocket of the forces of evil. It’s a write-in for this Catholic. I have to answer to God, not the Republican Party. I say to the GOP, yes, baby-killing IS a more important issue than the economy. It shall ever be so.
