Mitt Romney supporters: No shrinking violets here

H/T Joel2012

The Obama team better be prepared to be one-upped if they plan on playing dirty during this Presidential campaign.

An according to an article in the National Review, We've already seen signs that back this up.

Some examples include:

The Washington Post piece on a supposed Romney high school hazing was answered with the internet ablaze with Obama's own voice proclaiming his heavy drug use during his college years and unkind treatment of a girl in middle school.

Then there is the liberal medias never ending remider of the Romney dog Seamus riding on the roof of the Romney family station wagon in a custom made carrier 3 decades ago. This was answered with a revelation Obama made in his memoirs about eating dog. Soon the internet was flooded with images of Obama munching on doggie sandwiches.

As the article points out:
Team Obama usually starts the exchange, either to distract from dismal economic news, or in zeal to portray Romney as aristocratic and out of touch — but without careful thinking about what the inevitable Romney rebuttal might look like.
Perhaps the Romney team has learned something from the Obama/McCain contest of 2008, not to repeat the McCain one-hand-tied-behind-the-back model.
In other words, each time we hear of an irrelevant hit on Romney, we will probably hear of something equally irrelevant — and worse — about Obama, in a way we never would have in 2008. Petty? A distraction from the failing economy? Of course, but the Romney people apparently believe that they must and will achieve deterrence by replying in kind and to such a degree that Team Obama will soon cease playing such a childish game of taunts.
As someone who was never afraid to get my hands dirty ‘when necessary’, I look at it this way, We’re in an age now of sensationalism and short attention spans. Many people only believe what they see or hear in short snippets. Obama supporters will do their best to play into this phenomenon by trying to reach those Americans who rely on TV, The Enquirer and Star Magazine for their news. Romney will need these voters as well and his supporters should be willing to go after them and set the record straight when team Obama tries to plant some anti-Romney seeds. These folks expect it and will look upon it as weakness when attacks on Romney are not answered.

I agree. We Romney supporters must be ready for anything and not be afraid to roll around in the mud if and when necessary.

I agree also.

Obama needs to realize that anything negative by him will be countered ten-fold by Republicans.

I read a post at powerline which said pretty much the same thing. Romney and his team are firing back.

This is necessary I think. It might seem silly a lot of the time,but it is how the game is played.

If the polls are any indication, Romney's camp fighting back is working. The American people are not stupid.

After criticizing Romney's dog care and high school prank, we found that Obama ate dog and was in a two year long drugged out daze in high school. It reminds me of that who's-your-daddy dummy from Master of Disguise and Dana Carvey. Obama just keeps slapping himself in the face. Neat little operation, and Obama makes the campaign's job easy.

Obama's record belongs to HIM. What a poser.

Unfortunately, Obama keeps making more mud for everyone. He sure is NOT the nice guy he sold us back in 2008.

Someone pointed out that Obama's last four attempts at media art all involved sex, starting with the non-issue of contraception. I think we are getting to know the REAL Obama, the one who had Frank Marshall Davis for his mentor.

"In his 1995 memoir Dreams from My Father, Obama identifies his childhood mentor only as "Frank," but Obama insiders later confirmed he was referring to Davis, a journalist and poet who was a pal of Obama's maternal grandfather, Stanley Dunham.

For seven years, the presidential candidate had a "father-son" relationship with Frank Marshall Davis, {the secret author of "Sex Rebel: Black"}who has confessed to having sex with children, sadomasochism, bondage and practicing a wide array of deviant sexual activities."

Books by Frank Marshall Davis

Certainly a piece of the puzzle of why I think ALL Americans ought to vote for Romney. Obama is not a nice guy. He truly is of the hue of his communist propaganda posters that feature himself.

There is no evidence {Frank Marshall} Davis ever abandoned his commitment to what Allen Weinstein described as "a murderous and discredited ideology."

In 1999 it was reported 3 million North Koreans starved to death in the Socialist workers paradise Davis so cherished while others were eating grass to survive.

Meanwhile, the people of the Republic of South Korea, created with American assitance, have thrived and prospered. The Khmer Rouge - the Communist government of Cambodia, exterminated three million people after the U.S. backed government of Lon Nol fled the country.

When the collapse of the Republic of South Vietnam forced hundreds of thousands to flee the terror of the North Vietnamese communists, an estimated half million drowned in their desperation to escape.

In the final years of Davis's life the Soviet Union wanted to bring social change in a new Soviet Socialist Republic of Afghanistan. One million eight hundred thousand Afghani's lost their lives.

The United States actively opposed Soviet-Communist subjugation of the Afghan people. This is the record of the "Frankenstein monsters" the U.S. supported, and the communist parties they opposed.

In 2007 Prof. Gerald Horne outed the identity of "Frank" at a Communist party gathering and published in an article entitled, "Rethinking the History and Future of the Communist Party": "At some point in the future, a teacher will add to her syllabus Barack’s memoir and instruct her students to read it alongside Frank Marshall Davis’ equally affecting memoir...when that day comes...a future student will ...examine critically the Frankenstein monsters that U.S. imperialism created in order to subdue Communist parties..."

United States isn't imperialistic. My proof is that the islands love Romney. They want a strong U.S. Navy. This proves they don't fear us; they prefer us.
