Who Says the Economy is Tanking?
Romney goes out and says, “Harry, instead of talking about taxes, why don’t we talk about the fact that you’re being irresponsible with your budget?” Story: “Romney Does Not Deny He Hasn’t Paid Taxes!” This business of trying to get the media to be fair to us is not gonna work. That’s my whole point today. You know, there are days I throw my hands up in frustration and say, “Why am I even doing this?” I have to say these things 25 times to be understood. We’re not gonna get fair treatment, equal treatment, in the media.
We’re not gonna get respect. If Romney had come out with a sound bite that really embarrassed Reid, they wouldn’t report it. It would never see the light of day. The only thing that’s gonna happen is Harry Reid’s gonna continue to get media time saying Romney hasn’t paid his taxes, and the only thing the media is gonna care about is getting Romney to either deny it or admit it. Nothing else Romney says is ever gonna be a factor. We’re not gonna succeed here playing their game. This just isn’t gonna happen.
I know how unfair it is, and I know how frustrating it is, and I know you get sick and tired of the unfairness of it all, especially listening to a bunch of people wail and moan bet unfairness of America all day long and why they’ve gotta do all these massive changes in our culture and our politics. That’s the racism, the sexism, the bigotry and the unfairness of all that stuff. In the meantime, you’re just concerned about the basic unfairness of the media.
But their job’s to destroy conservatism. It always has been. They’re just now admitting it. So in light of that, it’s foolish to think that we can impress them. It’s foolish to think that we can come up with a sound bite here or there or a Twitter post or a Facebook post that’s gonna make ’em go, “Oh, wow! You know, maybe these guys aren’t so bad after all.” It isn’t gonna happen. That simply isn’t gonna happen.
