Romney Campaign vs. Democrat-Media Complex
Hardly the middle of May and the behavior of the Obama campaign indicates grave concern. It is highly unusual for an incumbent to stink of desperation this early in the game. The wounds Romney endured during the bloody republican primary seem innocuous at this point. Political pundits and analysts that predicted residual effects seem to have discounted the wounds America has sustained in Obama’s last three years in office which dwarf Romney’s primary battle wounds to a small paper cut – at best.
The Obama campaign strategy is clear: divert as much attention as possible from the economy and pretty much every aspect of his first term with the exception, of course, his decision to kill Osama Bin Laden. But they’ve even blown that, with their recent efforts to politicize the event backfiring after even members of the far left such as Arianna Huffington having chastised the attempt. Now it’s all about creativity.
Their latest ploy: Obama announces he has “evolved” and now supports gay marriage – actually, he announced his support for the state to decide, which is how it is already. So as usual, nothing has changed. Two days later the Washington Post has now uncoincidentally put out a front page story alleging that while in high school Mitt Romney bullied a classmate named John Lauber, who was suspected of being gay. Another affirmation of the existential collusion between the Democratic Party and the mainstream media, that Andrew Breitbart dubbed the Democratic-Media Complex.
The Complex is desperate indeed, now digging deeper into Romney’s past than even the best paleontologists. The only difference is Dr. Alan Grant actually found evidence of dinosaurs, while the Washington Post has found nothing. One of the “witnesses” they originally quoted in the piece, as it turns out, was not even there. He only heard about it when contacted by the Washington Post itself a few weeks before the very publication. The other four “witnesses” are all Democrats and one even worked on Obama’s 2008 campaign. As for the alleged victim, he’s been dead since 2004, but his family has come out and said they have no knowledge of the incident. The alleged victim’s sister Christine Lauber said, “If he were still alive today, he would be furious [about the story].” Furthermore, a formal statement from the family said, “The portrayal of John is factually incorrect and we are aggrieved that he would be used to further a political agenda.”
The Republican Party have long been slow and clumsy in firing back at The Complex, but the Romney campaign has proved to be very effective thus far in deflecting attacks from both the Obama Campaign and the Mainstream Media, finally taking example from the savvy tactics of conservative websites like the Breitbart Empire and Drudge Report as well as conservative talk radio. This contemptible, slanderous hit piece by the Washington Post has quickly blown up in their faces, right where it belongs. But be assured that The Complex will keep digging away.
Make no mistake about it, something is out there. Nobody is perfect, and everybody is guilty of transgressions, particularly in high school.
On second thought maybe there is nothing buried in Romney’s past. Maybe his closet is sans skeletons. Maybe that’s why the Washington Post concocted a wishful story published without any real evidence to support it. The product of cheap journalism driven by an ideological agenda that holds precedence over truth and integrity. Journalistic integrity is rare form nowadays – all but extinct on the left end of the political spectrum. It’s been preyed on by a corrupt spirit and abusive mainstream media that has used its power to manipulate its audience.
This is what the Romney campaign is up against. The Complex will continue to assault Mitt Romney’s character with scurrilous defamation. Their standards are evident: they have none. No one and nothing is off limits. You can never sink too low. Can the Romney Campaign persevere? Stay tuned.
