Jim Messina, Obama for America Campaign Manager didn’t get much sleep last night. Sleepless donkeys began braying.
At 4:42 a.m. EST, Messina sent an email to all, subject line: “What Paul Ryan said”.
In that wee hour telling email, Messina came right out and claimed the Obama regime’s utter ownership of the mainstream media:
“If you’ve seen any coverage of Paul Ryan’s speech in Tampa, you know that the consensus among journalists and independent observers is that it was…factually challenged.” (See email below).
“The consensus among journalists?”
Now the Obama team not only owns the MSM, they openly brag about it.
Obama recently claimed he wasn’t tuning in on any of the Republican National Convention (RNC), but Messina at 4:42 a.m., and David Axelrod, before him at the stroke of midnight, were trying in desperation to pull the Obama campaign out of its noisy nosedive.
The campaign, which recently upped its contribution request from grassroots little folk, from $3 to $5 is running scared.
But donkeys are more legendary for braying than they are for their speed in races.
If there is one thing the Obama 2012 Reelection campaign has proved is that negativity is a dead end street.
With 23 million Americans now actively seeking work, the Democratic heresy that the Republicans are anti-women and are out to get the elderly, is falling on mostly deaf ears. Under the Obama administration, most Americans are living in the negative world the Dems have created and are just trying to get by.
Republican candidate for vice president Paul Ryan couldn’t have been more on the mark when he talked about how out-of-work young people who have returned to the bedrooms of their parents’ houses looking up at fading Barack Obama posters deserve better.
The Democrats failed in their treacherous efforts to drown the RNC.
Hurricane Isaac left Tampa behind, but Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm thought that God was seeking ways to “shut down the whole” convention (Warner Todd Huston, Aug. 29, 2012.)
Obama’s Hollywood enablers could have kept the sleepless Messina and Axelrod company last night.
Actress Ellen Barkin hoped aloud that all the Republicans would be killed by the coming hurricane.
Samuel L. Jackson thought God was being unfair to hit New Orleans while he “spared” the GOP.
And as Huston points out, “the Left has been so ginned up over the claims that Katrina is God’s punishment of America that a Wikipedia page was started to chronicle the
In the end, Hurricane Isaac was soundly trumped by GOP’s own hurricane, the one they call candidate for vice president Paul Ryan.
At this stage of the ticking clock: All donkeys are braying loudly. The Obama campaign is dead but won’t lie down.
Meanwhile the irony of all ironies in Obama’s promised Hope and Change is unfolding before our very eyes.
Obama’s Hope and Change backfired on the man nobody knows but went on to pave the way for real Hope and Change: The Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan rescue of America.
Paul Ryan’s Speech
From: Jim Messina, BarackObama.com firstname.lastname@example.org
Subject: What Paul Ryan said
Date: 30 August, 2012 3:45:57 AM EDT
If you’ve seen any coverage of Paul Ryan’s speech in Tampa, you know that the consensus among journalists and independent observers is that it was ... factually challenged.
He lied about Medicare. He lied about the Recovery Act. He lied about the deficit and debt. He even dishonestly attacked Barack Obama for the closing of a GM plant in his hometown of Janesville, Wisconsin—a plant that closed in December 2008 under George W. Bush. He also failed to offer one constructive idea about what he would do to move the country forward.
Don’t roll your eyes. We can’t just groan and shrug and remark to our like-minded friends that this is ridiculous, because this is a significant moment in this campaign.
The fact that this speech, on this huge stage, is this blatantly false represents a huge bet by the Romney campaign—they’ve decided that facts, truth and reality will not be a brake on their campaign message. And they just signaled to the extremist billionaires and corporate interests that support them that they should go ahead and spend their hundreds of millions of dollars attacking Barack Obama with whatever lies can work.
The only thing that can beat this back is you:
Obama for America
