Obama Throws Victimhood Under the Bus?
Mitt Romney should take this victims comment of Obama’s. He’s out there saying he doesn’t believe this is a nation of victims like Romney does. Romney never said that. It’s a floundering campaign. They’re putting words in Romney’s mouth. But it’s an opportunity now ’cause Obama has just thrown his own philosophy under the bus. Again, I want to stress: He really hasn’t done that. Don’t misunderstand. I don’t think Obama all of a sudden now has thrown liberalism away.
That’s precisely the point. He hasn’t. I don’t believe that when he talks about hard work taking you where you want, that’s what he believes in. That’s not good for liberalism. Liberalism needs victims. It thrives on ’em. Without victims, why would you need a messiah? So what this indicates to me is that they’re grasping at straws. They’re throwing things up against the wall and hoping something sticks.
This is not the kind of stuff a campaign does when it thinks it’s gonna win Ohio by ten and Pennsylvania by 12 and Florida by 11 or whatever the numbers were yesterday. And why is Obama in Virginia? He’s got it wrapped up. Why is he in Ohio? He’s got it wrapped up. Why is he going to these places? It’s all wrapped up. Why is he out talking about the NFL referee strike? He’s very happy it’s been settled.
