The Long Con: Mail-order conservatism

http://www.thebaffler.com/past/the_long_con/p...

If the 2012 GOP nominee lied louder than most—and even more astoundingly than he has during his prior campaigns—it’s just because he felt like he had more to prove to his core following. Lying is an initiation into the conservative elite. In this respect, as in so many others, it’s like multilayer marketing: the ones at the top reap the reward—and then they preen, pleased with themselves for mastering the game. Closing the sale, after all, is mainly a question of riding out the lie: showing that you have the skill and the stones to just brazen it out, and the savvy to ratchet up the stakes higher and higher. Sneering at, or ignoring, your earnest high-minded mandarin gatekeepers—“we’re not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact-checkers,” as one Romney aide put it—is another part of closing the deal. For years now, the story in the mainstream political press has been Romney’s difficulty in convincing conservatives, finally, that he is truly one of them. For these elites, his lying—so dismaying to the opinion-makers at the New York Times, who act like this is something new—is how he has pulled it off once and for all. And at the grassroots, his fluidity with their preferred fables helps them forget why they never trusted the guy in the first place.

Obama Sets New Hampshire Political Record
The first stop of the second-to-last day of the presidential campaign brought with it a new political record in the politically rich state of New Hampshire.

The Obama campaign drew 14,000 people to an outdoor rally in Concord. That was the biggest crowd for a campaign event in Granite State history.

The prior record seems to have been the 8,500 people that Obama drew to an Oct. 27 rally in Nashua. Following that rally, WMUR political analyst James Pindell reportedly said it was the largest campaign gathering the state had ever seen.
Obama's Sunday morning event -- which featured speeches from both him and former president Bill Clinton -- shattered that total.
New Hampshire is a small state. The capital, Concord, has a population of less than 43,000. But it has also witnessed its share of campaign moments, owing to the tightly contested primaries every four years and its status as a toss-up state in the general election. So for Obama to have set the record there says something about his continued appeal in the state, especially since he has had difficulty drawing crowds of the size he drew as a presidential candidate four years ago.

There's very little i wouldn't believe when it comes to the scumbag democrat leadership and Obama.
It all started off with stirring speeches, Greek columns, the thrill of something new. Now all that's left is an Obama adrift, asleep at the wheel, surviving on slogans that already seem tired, grasping at a moment that has already passed, like a ship trying to sail on yesterday's wind and more sellout and excuses...

Time for some reality:

Analysis: Romney's foreign policy overreach

"Time and again, Americans tend to rally around their President when policy moves beyond America’s shores.

That’s why Romney’s response to anti-American rioting in Cairo and the death of four U.S. diplomats in Libya is a risky, double-edged sword.

It gave Romney an opening to launch a new weak-sister broadside at Obama’s foreign policy. But it also left him open to charges he's playing politics with national security.

In his zeal to capitalize on the Cairo demonstrations, Romney overreached, then got overtaken by tragic events in Benghazi, Libya. That forced him, in effect, to double down with a Wednesday press conference where he looked ill at ease, defensive, opportunistic and — even some of his most ardent GOP boosters privately conceded — unpresidential.

“He wasn’t comfortable with the subject matter and it showed,” an unaligned GOP national strategist said.

“Trying to make political points on a dead diplomat is tactless enough,” a second GOP operative added.“But the ham-handed press conference confounded the cringe factor.”

Romney's case wasn't helped by the combative, petulant TV interviews given by his foreign policy adviser Rich Williamson, never known for his diplomatic touch.

By contrast — and design — Obama’s Rose Garden remarks were subdued, restrained, and at least not overtly political in tone.

Romney backers, however, are unrepentant.

“You can’t criticize him for jumping on Obama's weak (Cairo) statement apologizing,” a top Romney source told the Daily News.“Strength versus weakness is something he wants to emphasize, and Obama gave him the chance.”

But the danger, the source added, is that while Romney can only talk, Obama can act:

“If Obama takes strong action over there and reports back to the American people day after day, it could be a big plus for him.”

Such Romney attacks are catnip for the Republican base, but aren't likely to help a candidate whose foreign policy marks lag Obama by a hefty margin.

Little wonder, according to insiders, he's spending far more time in debate preparations cramming on foreign policy than on any other topics.

Proof of Fretard's loser status. DUH

Most Americans believe in Climate Change science.

Leaving the Republiclown in the dust, still believing in 1950's nonsense.

Tht's part of why the Twit can't win.

He's been on every side of Climate Change over the years, from a true believer to a denier.

Romney is a whore for votes. He has no core beliefs.
