So who can win the general election?
What if Republican primary voters actually consider actual electoral history rather than listening to Fox News talking heads, toe-sucking Clinton consultants like Dick Morris, and all-day commentators on Mitt Romney’s own Bain Capital-owned Clear Channel/810?
Let’s have a look:
Last three non-incumbent winners all talked the same “peace” game to win:
1996 Bill Clinton was the peace candidate beat GHW Bush, very successful pro-war, pro-nation building candidate, lost due to a bad economy to peace candidate who talked peace and focused on the economy.
2000 George Bush – said we shouldn’t be nation building and should have a humble foreign policy (he lied about all that, but he got elected).
2008 Barack Obama – said he would end wars, another anti-war candidate like Bush was in 2000 (he lied about that, but he got elected).
2012 so you think another pro-war, another “bomb, bomb, bomb, Iran” candidate can win a general election?????
That’s just unreality.
I guess if I brainwashed myself (or should I say ‘Bain-washed’ myself?) with multiple hours of Multiple Mitts employees: Rush, Hannity, Levin, Savage and then went home and Foxed my thoughts up with some O’Reilly and some more Hannity, I would be pretty confused myself.
The way this happens and will happen more over the next few months, of course, is to eliminate all other options, leaving the listener or viewer with only one logical choice: Mittens. This tactic is not unlike when Roger Ailes juxtaposed Hannity with Colmes, leading unthinking viewers to the conclusion that the opposite of Hannity is Colmes, rather than the opposite of Hannity being – sanity?
