Romney Campaign Thinks Oklahoma City Is in Ohio
The Romney campaign is rapidly becoming a mountain of epic FAIL.
You may have heard that all of right-wing punditry is in an uproar following the reaction of a Romney campaign spokesperson to an Obama campaign ad featuring a worker who lost his job — and health insurance — thanks to Romney's Bain Capital, and subsequently his wife to cancer.
She said, "“If the people had been in Massachusetts, under Governor Romney’s health care plan, they would have had health care."
That's because Romney spearheaded health care reform in Massachusetts almost identical to President Obama's Affordable Care Act aka "Obamacare," which righties hate with a passion and Romney is now asserting he'll repeal.
Limbaugh was literally left sputtering as he contemplated the Romney response. Andrea Saul’s appearance on Fox was a potential gold mine for Obama supporters,” he said. “They can say, ‘Romneycare was the basis for our health care.’”
Oh .... darn. You know how bad it makes me feel when Rush Limbaugh is upset.
But that wasn't all. The Little Campaign That Couldn't has been running an ad here in Ohio claiming that somehow, by bailing out the auto industry, President Obama forced the closing of a car dealership in Lyndhurst. It's a fairly bizarre ad anyway, because Romney famously opposed the bailout in a New York Times editorial titled 'Let Detroit Go Bankrupt," which would have resulted in dozens if not hundreds more auto dealerships in Ohio going belly-up.
But the best part?
But just as the narrator says that at the 5-second mark, the ad shows a streetscape that appears to be in Oklahoma City, as noted by Sarah Burris, managing editor of the progressive blog FutureMajority.com. Google street view confirms that the scene is indeed outside the Advanced Academics building on E. Sheridan Avenue in Oklahoma City.
Seriously, Democrats ... stop your weeping and wailing, your handwringing and quivering, your dire predictions of defeat in November. The Romney campaign is self-destructing. Your job is to push it over the edge. Do some phone banking, do some canvassing, make sure your friends are registered to vote. Let's bring this thing home. If Romney is this inept as a candidate, can you even imagine how destructive his presidency would be to this country?
