A little Slip of the Tongue

Really? With Rush and his - Obama - Osama routine. The message has stunk with some folks. if there is an association which is all that the Republicans wanted. Barack Obama. Osama Bin Laden. They just wanted a hint of doubt in the minds of Americans. Once you start thinking that you aren’t sure who the Senator is and who is the terrorist then they have won.

So, did Romney really make a “mistake” yesterday when he said, “Actually, just look at what Osam _ Barack Obama _ said just yesterday. Barack Obama, calling on radicals, jihadists of all different types, to come together in Iraq. That is the battlefield. … It’s almost as if the Democratic contenders for president are living in fantasyland. Their idea for jihad is to retreat, and their idea for the economy is to also retreat. And in my view, both efforts are wrongheaded.”

His campaign said it was just a slip of the tongue. Really? So, is Romney the absent-minded politician or is he the business genius that his campaign is painting? It can’t be both.

Excellent find. There has been a deliberate effort on the part of the Conservatives to smear Obama.

You are absolutely right about what the Republicans/Conservatives have been trying to do in terms of establishing just enough doubt in the minds of voters. It is clear that the aim is to be subtle...and to target ill informed Americans, particularly those who watch FOX.

Then again... I don't think most of those folks were going to vote for Obama anyway.

I covered the Romney "Obama sign" incident from a few months back.

There is no way that the sign was an accident....and there is no way that he had a slip up this time either.

This is one of the questions that Republican candidates should be asked at the next debate (but no one will ask). Do they support this smear campaign or not? And they should be asked the question AFTER a clip of the smear campaign is run on they can't deny that it exists.

I believe there is a youtube clip somewhere... that was made a while back... but he's been attacked even more since then.

Unbelievable stuff in a Country that is supposed to be civilized, Democratic, and non-xenophobic.

Part of the attacks on Obama. Not surprising from this bunch.
