President Mini-Me and the 2012 Election

By becoming insufferable our president is becoming his own worst enemy.

Mitt Romney is running against a different man than the Pied Piper of “transformational change” who danced and floated to victory against John McCain in the 2008 presidential election. Romney’s opponent is that man’s clone — scaled down to one-eighth the size. He’s a much smaller and distinctly meaner version of the Barack Obama of four years ago, and he knows how to fight in only one way — small and dirty.

Instead of promising to heal the earth, cause the oceans to recede, and create “new industries and millions of new jobs that pay well and can’t ever be outsourced,” President Mini-Me is constantly on the attack — but only over the most trivial or irrelevant of issues. And there is not bit of truth he won’t bend or break.

As the Wall Street Journal commented in its lead editorial on April 26:

One of Mr. Romney’s trickiest challenges will be how to handle Mr. Obama’s, er, veracity. More than any President we’ve seen, this incumbent is willing to say things that aren’t in the same area code as the truth. He gives himself credit for the natural gas drilling boom, the deficits are still Mr. Bush’s fault, Mr. Obama has never raised taxes, and “green jobs” in his dream economy are blooming by the millions.

In fairness to President Mini-Me, one may recall the old legal adage: When the law is on your side, you argue the law; when you have the facts, you argue the facts; and when you have neither, you pound the table.

And so the president goes around the country pounding the table on issues that are totally misleading or grossly overstated. He goes around righting wrongs that exist only within the overwrought imagination of liberals whose minds are permanently stuck in the righteous and indignant mode of thought…

Update: Romney must capitalize

…Many [intelligence] professionals believe we are no safer today then we were a few years ago. Some intelligence and counter-terrorism officials have actually separated from the federal government due to President Obama’s constant threat of investigating and criminally charging those who serve on the front lines. As Mr. Rodriguez pointed out, President Obama has “broken the covenant that exists between the intelligence officers on the pointy end of the spear and the government that authorized and directed them to go there.”…
