Setting Up For The Flop
Romney/Ryan: Are They Pulling Punches
Even on a subconscious level one has to wonder if the Romney / Ryan campaign are pulling their punches, by the ever so subtle hay-makers they're throwing out there. It's like they're intentionally dropping their guard so that the Obama camp can chin check them with a stunning right cross and left hook to the body, to use a pugilistic metaphor. With comments or gaffs made by either Romney or Ryan, but with Romney being the head of the ticket he tends to be more gaff prone (i.e. 47% comment, people are corporations).
I'm only guessing that the GOP is merely posturing with Romney, for the odd chance that average Americans will be in a coma like state on November 6th, 2012 and vote for the Romney/Ryan ticket. Also I'm concluding that Mitt Romney was the only one in the GOP willing to seriously consider running against President Obama, who despite all of their obstructionist tactics managed to accomplish some serious victories while in office. They discounted him as a U S President who wouldn't accomplish anything noteworthy to the American public, but he's survived the onslaught of negative opposition (anti-Obama Haters) to make great strides while in the office of President of the United States of America.
With all of the things he's accomplished like: saving the American auto Industry, a major bank/financial meltdown (possibly another Great Depression), the finding & killing of Osama Bin Laden, a potential housing crisis, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and his coup d´état the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (commonly referred to as Obamacare). One would think that with all of the political baggage associated with Romney, why the republican party would want to waste whatever political capital on someone like Mitt Romney.
Even with the economy recovering as slowly as it is now, it still leaves me to wonder how much better it would be if the likes of McConnell, Boehner, and Cantor had shown an inkling of leadership and tried to work with instead of opposing everything President Obama has tried to accomplish for the good of the country as a whole. Think about where the unemployment numbers would be if say, "The American Jobs Act", or "Infrastructure Bill" or "Teachers & First Responders Bill" had passed.
With their stated purpose of making President Obama a one term president, that goal looks like it's going to fail anyway when Obama gets re-elected in 22 days. Which we will know for certain on November 7th, then what happens. I get the distinct impression the people will have spoken and the likes of Eric Cantor, Alan West, Joe Walsh and Michelle Bachmann will become unemployed US Representatives of the House and former prominent political figures. Then maybe they can do something for the good of all Americans in Washington. Get ready for the knockout punch on November 6th, but the devastating blows will come on Tuesday October 16th & 22nd followed by the standing 8 count.
This standing 8 count is the GOP's chance to jump off the SS Romney, but life boats of the party Bachmann, Cantor, Walsh and West will be taking on water as well. As the polls continue turning in Obama's favor the excuses will come out as if they were on cue. The Conservative pundits will also begin conceding the race after the last presidential debate, with all of the conspiracy theorists, birthers, and obstructionist pointing blame at the liberal media.
