Ah, it's Karl Rove time. The tactic is to attack the opposition at its strength. So President Obama saved General Motors and Vice President Biden pricked Mr. Romney with the quip, "General Motors is alive and Osma Bin Laden is dead." So Rove and his Republicans simply say, well, "GM being alive is not such a good thing for America--they are sending work to China."
Of course, it doesn't have to be true, you just say it, and you've got autoworkers calling up their union to ask whether or not it's true.
You can say President Obama was born in Bagdad, and his father was Sadam Hussein, and all that stands between America and prosperity is government regulations and women who are legitimately raped will not get pregnant and anything you want and Rush Limbaugh will believe it and broadcast it to 15 million willing believers.
I prefer the Republican, Lincoln, who shares only the name with the current bunch of reprobates going by that name: You can fool all the people some of the time; and you can fool some of the people all of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time.
Amen, Mr. President.
