Guess who said the following from the Presidential campaign trail:
He [opposing candidate] is spending an awful lot of time talking about me. You notice that? I haven’t seen an ad yet where he talks about what he’s going to do. And the reason is because he knows they don’t have any good answers, they know they’ve had their turn…and made a mess of things.”
They know that you’re not real happy with them and so the only way they figure they’re going to win this election is if they make you scared of me.
If you guessed this was Mitt Romney speaking you get credit for logical thinking, but you’re wrong. This was a direct quote of Barack Obama in October of 2008, bashing his opponent John McCain by linking him to the outgoing Bush Administration.
Now, in May 2012 the Obama campaign is coordinating with friendly media to make you scared of his challenger, Mitt Romney. Most recently they characterized Romney as an evil rich guy who gleefully fires hapless workers, and as a bully who assaulted a high school classmate five decades ago.
