I constantly make a joke about how I envy the Republican Party because they had a great allegiance to whoever was on their ticket. Many liberals would debate about who was best for America itself while many Republicans would support who ever had a (R) next to their name in solidarity for the party. I even felt that they would support whoever was running on the Republican ticket even if it was a puppy. The last week or so we have gotta admit hasn’t been the best for one Mitt Romney. People can try to spin it anyway they want but he has made two huge public gaffes that even an amateur politician wouldn’t have made. Mitt Romney has decided to do a campaign slogan that is one of a different nature. He has decided to novel campaign strategy called “Say Anything 2012”.
Mitt feels that the best way for him to win is for him to say anything and to be the first person to say it. He is acting like this presidency is like a campaign to get in a woman’s pants. Mitt just knows that at some point that if he says the right things at the right time and the woman (the American people) are drunk enough maybe he can win the election and get some (the White House).
Mitt’s first gaff was his response to the attacks on the Egyptian and Libyan embassy attacks. The Libyan attacks resulted in four diplomats tragically being killed. These protests and disturbances were in reference to a controversial video by Koran burning teacher Terry Jones where he was going to put the prophet Muhammad in a very ill light. Instead of displaying solidarity for what happen to the American diplomats Mitt decided it would be a great occasion for “Say Anything 2012” moniker when he released a statement criticizing the president before any details had been delivered. He said:
“The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims — as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.”
Romney’s statement especially him referring to “American Values” was made off a statement delivered from the Cairo Embassy on their stance about the situation BEFORE the attack/protests happened As Homer Simpson would say “Dooh!” Yeah he didn’t get all the information about the protests beforehand. He thought the statement was made after the Cairo embassy was already breached. Romney showed his inability to understand foreign policy and just wanting to bark at anything and continue his “Say Anything 2012”. Many GOP came down on Romney for this but yet in still many defend him nonetheless because that’s what the GOP does right? We ride for the party… “Puppy 2012”
Oh, that wasn’t enough for one Mitt Romney yesterday he goes out and takes “Say Anything 2012” another level. Considering how bad the economy is right and people struggling to get what the GOP says everyone can achieve the proverbial “American Dream he says “47 % percent of American’s are victims”. How did he get 47%? What research did he do about this? Did he poll people and ask if they felt they were victims? What about all the Americans going out here grinding everyday while the people who are claiming victim the most many times have the most? He just came up with an obtuse number in his head because you know what he has to keep his campaign slogan of “Say Anything 2012” going. Mitt in that comment sounded like the dude in the barbershop who says “ Bruh, I bet you 82% of chicks would have sex with Nicki Minaj if giving the opportunity”
I will be the first to admit I am not too enamored with the political process because I see so much bull from both sides. I am not like any of those trite black church leaders who are telling their parishioners to not go vote (which I think is covert form of propaganda combined with the voter disenfranchisement happening across the country). I will vote because it is something that many people gave up their lives for me to have the opportunity to cast a vote. But, I gotta say that it is no way I understand how someone could seriously considering hitching their wagon to Romney and his “Say Anything 2012”. As I have said above he really believes that just saying anything is the way you need to run the country. These two gaffs I have seen many Conservatives even shake their head at but for many they still keep pressing on thinking that Romney is the man for the job because they have to support whoever is running for the party even if it is a puppy. And just like a puppy Romney loves to just bark at anything because he HAS to keep up the campaign sentiment of “Say Anything 2012”. No candidate is going to say and do all the things we believe we should do all the time but I know that I laugh because I definitely not feeling a president that “will just say anything.” If someone wants to support Romney that’s your democratic choice but if you don’t have a rational reason. I get you are down with the party till the end because of their “conservative” ideas and “fiscal financial responsibility. But, don’t you have to question after Romney has repeatedly invoked his “Say Anything 2012”? If you can’t sit there and really question him I gotta believe you are one of those people like many in the GOP who would support a puppy and his campaign slogan of “Ruff Ruff 2012”.
