Patton: Campaign Commercials Romney Should Run

By Doug Patton

Because he is now the only person standing between the American people and four more disastrous years of you-know-who, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is unquestionably my pick for President of the United States. However, like millions of other American conservatives, my first, second or third choices during the Republican presidential primary season were, in fact, someone else — and the last couple of weeks have reminded me why that was the case.

Like so many other stalwart champions of the RINO cause — John McCain, Bob Dole, Gerald Ford and the entire Bush family — Mitt Romney is exhibiting an uncanny ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. His lackluster little speech in the aftermath of the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision upholding Obamacare was disappointing to say the least. Instead of blasting the ruling in passionate tones as a gross violation of our liberties, he gave us political platitudes and wonkish numbers.

This was followed by a top Romney advisor, Eric Fehrnstrom, contradicting Chief Justice John Roberts and the entire Republican Party that Obamacare is, in fact, a massive tax increase. Fehrnstrom, you will recall, is the same hack who compared his candidate to an Etch-a-Sketch that could simply be shaken up and reset after the primaries were over.

Apparently, former Gov. Etch-a-Sketch stuck his finger into the political wind the next day and felt another round of conservative blowback, because he immediately reversed his campaign's official position to reflect the truth: Obamacare is a tax, not a "penalty." Of course, Ferhnstrom has not yet been fired, so one wonders what his next inane statement might be on behalf of his boss.

The reason for the Romney campaign's heartburn over the Obamacare ruling is exactly what former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum warned us about during the primaries: Romneycare, the health care plan Romney implemented in Massachusetts, became the blueprint for Obama's sweeping federal legislation. How does the author of Romneycare credibly attack Obamacare? Santorum asked.

Obama also is using class warfare to beat his opponent to death in the court of public opinion over the issue of Romney's business record when he ran Bain Capital, a record that should be his greatest strength in a weak economy.

Whatever is a presidential campaign to do?

As an old former campaign hack myself, I have a couple of modest proposals for bold, straight-forward commercials that will take Mitt Romney off the defensive and put his campaign on offense where it belongs. These could be done by the Romney organization itself or they can come from one of the Super PACs.

Mayor Corey Booker of Newark, New Jersey, and Governor Duvall Patrick of Massachusetts, both black Democrats, have defended Bain Capital and, by extension, Mitt Romney's leadership there. So has former President Bill Clinton. The words of these three men should be run over and over again until the American people see how hollow Obama's anti-free enterprise rhetoric really is.

Then, to attack Obamacare, picture two people who were residents of Massachusetts when Romneycare passed — one who loved it and chose to stay there after it was passed, the other who did not like it at all and chose to move to another state. A narrator, perhaps Romney himself, says, "The majority of residents in Massachusetts liked what we did there. Some did not and chose to move to another state." Then he asks, "Where will you go to escape Obamacare?"

The current Romney strategy seems to be grounded in a belief that if they simply do nothing the economy will cause Barack Obama to self-destruct. This is as foolhardy as Bob Dole thinking in 1996 that Bill Clinton was finished after the drubbing Republicans gave his party at the polls in 1994, or John Kerry believing the Iraq war would undo George W. Bush. You just can't beat something with nothing, and the Romney campaign is not immune to the laws of political reality.

    Like the ideas… here’s another that would be cheap and effective: Given Romney’s difficulty speaking plainly to “average people”, recruit some average people to speak for him. Do a series where they would all lead with “I want a president who”… then depending on who they’re targeting, say something like: “cares less about my birth control and more about whether I get a job when I graduate” (college student), or “cares less about what I’m packing in my kids lunch and more about how much I’m paying at the pump to drive him to baseball” (mom), or “cares as much about the debt we’re saddling my grandchildren with as I do” (grandmother), etc… Each would end with my name is X and I’m voting for Mitt Romney. The possibilities are almost endless — inexpensive and I’m convinced they’d work.

    We’re left with the same old problem; campaign ads that would be effective require taking a stand and holding firm, something recent Republican candidates don’t do.

    We all know the reason some firms went bankrupt under Bain is that you simply can’t save every company from its mistakes, and we all also know some of that happened after Romney left Bain, in some cases years later. Where are those ads, to counter the ones Democrats are currently running? I’m reminded of Bush, Sr.’s campaign that refused to refute the lies Democrats were using about the economy. It was as if Bush were saying, “Well, the voters know better.” News flash for Romney: The voters don’t.

      Obozo does not appreciate anyone, only their support to keep him in office. He has a history of throwing anyone under the bus when he doesn’t need them any more. After the past three and one half years, anyone who supports or defends Obozo is only enabling him to further destroy this Constitutional Republic that so many people worked so hard to build and maintain.

    It’s frustrating too see Republicans going down the same road to defeat as you said Bush, Dole, McCain. I think we need a new type of Conservative PAC. Not the money type but a united voice type to bypass the RNC and confront Romney. If he loses he goes back to a nice comfortable life while we suffer and watch our country go downhill and become an another weak European society. God forbid it!

    And pray tell me Mr. Patton that Romney is not a RINO! But you are right on the fact he needs to up the ante stop being ‘the wimp’ (Boehner type) and become stronger in his speeches and go after the evil that is in the White House. Also if Romney chooses Rubio or Jindahl for the VP position I will not vote for him I will write in the following name for President, whom I believe should be the VP and that is Allen West as he is a natural born citizen of the United States of America under the constitution, the gutsy guy who tells it like it is and is not a wimp or coward. So people, get real and email the fabulous Romney and tell him what you expect from the RINO choice, not a RINO but a conservative who believes in the consitution and will follow it and get rid of the unlawful executive orders that the obama administration has illegally dumped on Americans.

      I applaud your courage SAnn. I don’t agree with your write -in campaign, I will not hand the election to Ovamitt.
      However, you are absolutely correct, should Romney pick Rubio we will have given Ovamitt a free pas on the natural born citizen issue. While I like some of what Rubio has to say, I believe that if he were a truly stand-up guy, he himself would step forward & state that he is not qualified.
      As to Romney, his choosing to be complicit in the massive covering up for the fraud-in-chief, may well lead to the O’s reelection.
      To stjohnradio…I remember well 2010, but have no problems asking where are they now? Few do little but occasionally whine. They allow themselves to be circumvented at every turn, & refuse to expose what they know about this “Manchurian president’. They seem to have never learned that there is strength in numbers, as they too cower in fear of this fraud, and forget that they too swore an oath to defend and protect.
      I appreciate, and support Allen West, he is my hope too for VP. But he can’t do it on his own, and has little support for the truth he speaks from his fellow Congressmen.
      They should all be ashamed of themselves!

    This is precisely why I supported anyone but Romney in the primary contest; he is the weakest possible candidate. As your typical double-talking, unprincipled politician, he seeks the presidency for personal prestige and power, not because he sees the terrible state of the nation, has a vision of what it could and should be, or wishes to restore freedom and prosperity by reducing the power and expense of government to something more in line with what the Constitution allows. It’s going to be hard to drum up support for his vision of America when he doesn’t have one, keeps trying to defend his leftist record in Massachusetts and refuses to attack Obama, as he did his Republican opponents.

    We have no one in this contest fit to serve in public office; the difference is that Obama is several orders of magnitude more unfit and must be defeated before he destroys the country. If Romney is elected, along with a more Constitutionalist Congress, that will take the lead on policy, maybe they will begin to move us back from the brink of destruction. God save the Republic–it’s damned unlikely the politicians will.

      I would advise Governor Romney to spend some time listening to Ronald Reagan’s speeches. HE knew how to connect with the common American.

      Yes, we’ll vote for MR, but it sure would make us sleep better if we actually believed he was a man of strong convictions – a man who would make his decisions based on what is best for America – a man who KNOWS that the BEST government is the one that governs LEAST – a man who will give us AND STAND BY HIS WORD to take the government out of our everyday lives – a man who will name government agencies that should be CLOSED such as the Dept of Education and the EPA for starters – a man who will change our tax structure to make sure EVERY American pays some amount of tax instead of encouraging more and more to live off the sweat of another American’s brow. I could go on and on but I realize it is nothing more than a lesson in futility. I fear he is nothing more than an establishment Republican who will not make the necessary changes to save our country.

This country has had enough of idiots that try to direct presidents etc. I’d also like to see Romney speak out against O and do it in the MOST Diplomatic way imaginable SO the idiot liberal press mouths fall open and they can’t even begin to find a way to scratch back.
    I hope, pray and everything else that he can get the job done winning the election.
    He needs to get to the regular people that work and have worked their whole lives. When I have to read news about this rich person doing this or their homes in the Hampton’s etc YUCK enough, they aren’t the real people. They are the problem along with the get it free people that have NO IDEA most of the time about where the free stuff comes from AND DON’T CARE. EX. my hairdresser talking to 3 clients, all on welfare, child support etc and they are telling her that it comes from the government not you so why are you upset and she replies “who the heck do you think is the government paying you?” “WE are, THOSE OF US THAT WORK TO MAKE ENDS MEET.

A vote for anyone but Romney is a vote for Obama. This is not the time for wasting a vote, unless you are ready for Civil War II. If you think that sounds harsh, just wait and see what happens if Obama is re-elected and tries to take away peoples guns. You may not want the war, but you will have to take a side. God help us.

      Most important to me is to keep ALL current Republicans in their respective offices…we need every one to keep the majority in the House and to take the Senate. All Republican governors should remain in place unless term limited, such as the Virginia governor, McDonnell.

      2010 was a gigantic surprise to the administration and the media (oops…one and the same) but I forecast another blowout because Americans are sick and tired of having our country destroyed from the Oval Office and the Department of Justice.

      I do believe there will be a special extra-warm corner in you-know-where for the likes of Pelosi and Reid. They have NEVER put what is good for America first!

      While I’m on a rant, I’d also like to see an end to the current Republican leadership…we need fresh new blood and ideas! I would also urge the new leaders to shut down every single special-interest caucus…our elected members of Congress should represent ALL of their constituents. As it is, whether it is black, women, hispanic, tea party…EVERY one of them should be stopped and their members told to sit in their designated seat in the halls of Congress and represent ALL in their district!

    I would like to see a commercial where they interview folks from Canada, the UK, etc. and let them tell us how much they like their nationalized healthcare. I was born in Canada to US citizen parents, who were working up there. I lived there until I was about 3 yrs old and recently went back to my birthplace for a visit. It’s a beautiful country and I love the people, but their healthcare stories are pretty scary, and they don’t have any hope that things will get better. You could see the resignation in their faces. They depend on us and our good healthcare system, and scoot over the border when they need something that they can’t get there, or must put off for so long that it no longer matters when they do get it.

    something that is being forgotten in the RomneyCare/ObamaCare dust-up is that 1) Massachusetts is ONE STATE – what works for one state won’t necessarily work for the whole country, and 2) the PEOPLE of Massachusetts got to VOTE on it, and the majority of them said yes, we want it! something the country has not been able to do with ObamaCare – that one just got rammed down our collective throats. I do agree with everyone saying that Romney needs to really get more aggressive and take the attack to Obama. and he needs to do it damn fast, too.

      2) the PEOPLE of Massachusetts got to VOTE on it,

      NO we didn’t! The state legislature did it all by themselves. I’m very sorry Governor Romney signed it…he could have just let it become law without his signature since this is a one-party state.

      And…we also were NOT allowed to have the same-sex marriage law put on the ballot…the state Judiciary simply decreed it to be law! To be placed on the ballot so that we could have a say in such an important matter, it had to be approved at two state constitutional conventions – and our new governor refused to insist that the legislators vote on it as Romney had done the previous year.

      Therefore we had absolutely NO say in either matter. Welcome to a peek at life in Obama’s America where We the People are nothing more than a fly in his ointment! He canNOT be elected for a second term…or we will be LOST!

      Nope!

      It AIN’T working – You might want to check with the young family guys who are out working one or two jobs trying to make ends meet and keep a roof over their heads and food in their cupboards. Then, when they file their income taxes, end up paying thousands of $$ in fines EVERY YEAR for not having insurance coverage that the state demands they carry. Of course, if you are in Massachusetts ILLEGALLY, you have no problem…just go to any hospital ER and you’ll be treated – and NOT expected to pay for it…and of course you won’t get fined because you don’t file (OR PAY) MA taxes!

      Here’s a link to a recent BOSTON GLOBE (VERY LIBERAL newspaper) article that gives you the details.

    Romney is a lackluster candidate just as Mitch McConnell and John Boehner are lackluster leaders in congress. Christie is a great candidate with a great record who can speak articulately without pausing to remind himself of the subject.
    Somehow these people are ourleaderss and they all must get on the same topic-TAXES, Obamacare taxes, Obama’spatheticcperformancee on jobs and all of Obama’s promises 5.6% unemployment by his third year, keep your doctor, “no tax increases for anyone making less than $200,000/year, NOT ONE DIME!” There is so much to pound Obama on and these clowns can’t even get the message of it’s a tax not a penalty straight. What dunces and if we lose again I’m moving.

    If Republicans get elected the nation will be lost and sink into the ocean.

      Who would you prefer: Castro or Putin? If Republicans are
      not elected your wonderful Obama will totally turn us into
      a country that Castro and Putin would welcome with open
      arms. Get real. Obama is a disastor and every month he
      continues to govern pushes further into an un-American
      nation that we first started out.
      Our Founding Fathers would consider Obama as a treason and
      hold him liable for such with a trial and judgement.
      He should never have been elected President, and I think
      that Hillary Clinton believes that also, and is very
      sad she didn’t go all out to show Obama’s lack of citizenship and other qualifications. I believe the Dem’s made a huge
      mistake and regret it. What is Hillary going to do the next 4 yrs? She missed her chance last time.

      She’s getting much older and is losing any strong position if she want’s to challenge in 2014. It will be interesting to
      see what she does in the next 4 months. I believe she would like Obama to lose and get a running start for the next election. Politics is a fascinating game to watch.

      I always wondered why Hillary didn’t pound the birth certificate issue more during the 08 campaign, and I believe that the answer has to be that the DNC came to her and told her that Obama would be the Democratic candidate, and if she didn’t like it and didn’t keep quiet and toe the party line all they had to do was bring up two words – VINCENT FOSTER.
