In other words, he scares the crap out of them.
I want to add several snarky comments to this but I won’t because it is so, so spot on. That why we hear the liberals yelling, Romney lies! He cheated! That’s not the real Romney! 5 trillion in tax cuts for the rich! 7.8% funemployment (a number that gets curiousier and curiouser)! We created 5 million jobs! Romney has a secret cancer ray! Romney beat up a gay guy in high school and cut his hair!
All of which, of course are proven lies or outright data manipulations/misrepresentations by
Pot. Kettle. Black.
Mitt Romney didn’t just beat Obama on Wednesday night. He also beat the liberal media. So great was his performance that liberal journalists simply had to concede the President’s defeat – a humiliation for an industry that has spent several years setting Obama up as the wisest, most eloquent, most popular politician since FDR. No longer can Romney be dismissed with a gag about a dog strapped to the roof of his car. This uptight rich guy could be the next President of the United States.
Evidence of liberal panic is everywhere. In the hours after the debate, the mood in the MSNBC bunker was near-suicidal – and it’s in tortured moments like these that all pretense of objectivity disappears. Chris Matthews (a former Democrat staffer turned TV motor mouth who undoubtedly talks in his sleep) ranted that Obama ought to watch MSNBC to learn how to fight conservatives. Ed Schultz was “stunned” and Rachel Maddow thought it might be sort of a draw (in the same way that the Titanic’s encounter with an iceberg was “sort of a draw”). The New York Times ran with the vague headline, “Obama and Romney, in First Debate, Spar Over Fixing Economy” and called the evening “unhelpful.” Why? Because their guy lost.
The media still has wet panties, just this time it is from fear-induced incontinence and not sexual arousal.
Remember that I said this here:
So the Democrats and their enablers may have something on their hands that they don’t have a playbook for: a honest, religious, dedicated family man who happens to be a BYU, Harvard Law and Harvard MBA grad and a very successful businessman and public servant prior to being the chief executive of the State of Massachusetts.
Contrast and compare Romney with the last few Democrats running for president, Bill Clinton – a womanizing, intern diddling liar, Al Gore – a fanatic limousine liberal eco-nut, John Kerry – a dilettante gigolo Beacon Hill social climber, John Edwards – another serial philander and ambulance chasing trial lawyer, a baby daddy who was screwing Reille Hunter while his wife was dying of cancer, and the current president, Barack Obama – a dope smoking, coke snorting tepid non-entity with a protected past, a community organizer with no private sector experience, a political opportunist who was trained at the feet of socialists, Marxists and radicals.
There couldn’t be two more different arcs to a life. Where Obama has sought the shadows and hid behind a curtain of anonymity, Romney has lived a life in the sunlight with nothing held back.
Romney’s clean background and successful (and publicly visible) career are so different from what the Democrats know that they can’t find their ass with both hands right now.
