Republican National Convention Theme: Obama is a Nice Guy, But He’s Incompetent

Look, Romney, the Republican establishment, whatever, they don’t think there’s anything to be won by being critical of Obama. They just don’t. And so they’re not gonna be. They’re gonna tackle this mess we’re in by just saying he doesn’t know what he’s doing, he’s wrecking the country. I hope they don’t go so far as to say, “He’s trying his best.” I hope they don’t say that. But what they’re gonna say is, “He doesn’t get it.”

Now, Romney has said, in addition to this, that Obama’s experience is not the American experience. And that’s true. And, boy, if there’s one point that Dinesh D’Souza’s movie makes, it’s that. The 2016 movie that played in a thousand theaters has shocked the Hollywood media because it’s doing so well. I think it came in number three over the weekend, maybe four, right in the area where I thought it would and so predicted. The great thing about the movie, one of Dinesh D’Souza’s best lines in the movie is that he made the mistake when he was initially assessing Obama, he said, (paraphrasing) “We try to look at Obama within the context of American history, and he doesn’t have one. Obama doesn’t have an American history to be compared against.”

And by that, D’Souza means that the people who have influenced and mentored and taught Obama have had a global view of this country, which is that it’s unfairly large, unjustly a superpower, that it has cheated and stolen its way, the nation has, to its status, and some of this needs to be given back. Some of what we’ve taken from around the world needs to be given back. And, by the way, the same thing applies to the successful in this country. They have not acquired their wealth in a just and fair, quote, unquote, manner. And it needs to be given back, too. He said, (paraphrasing) “The way to understand Obama is to understand the way that people who really are not too crazy about this country around the rest of the world look at it, and once you understand that, then you’ll understand Obama.”
