Romney's Carpet Bombing Scorched Earth Attack Ad Approach Won't Work in the General Election

He has outspent his opponents anywhere from 5 to 6 to 10 - 1, depending on the state and the polling.

And while Mitt Romney pretends to be Mr. Nice Guy with his own campaign ads, everybody and their brother knows the carpet bombing scorched earth SuperPac ads of negativity against GOP rivals are done at his discretion.

Romney's half-truth's are disappointing.

"I believe that climate change is occurring – the reduction in the size of global ice caps is hard to ignore. I also believe that human activity is a contributing factor," Mitt Romney, from his 2010 book, No Apology.

To JBS, the real king of the half truths. Romney does NOT believe in Cap & Trade. If you don't like Romney and prefer to keep Obama as president, that is your right. However, please be accurate in your representation of the facts. And just do not expect many conservatives to get on the side of an Obama lover like you.

In August 2011, speaking at a town hall in Lebanon, N.H., Romney emphasized the need for energy independence.

"My focus as it comes to this topic is to get us off of our dependence on foreign oil, to use our natural gas, to drill for our oil, to use our coal, clean coal, to develop nuclear power, to use solar and wind and efficiency measures, that’s my priority. There are other people who would like to put in place a cap-and-trade program and dramatically increase the cost of energy. That’s their view. And by the way, that would kill a lot of jobs. And I don’t think it’s going to solve the problem of global warming."

In October 2011, speaking at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Romney was asked directly whether he favors it.

Here’s a portion of his answer: "I do not believe in a cap-and-trade program. By the way, they do not call it America warming, they call it global warming. So the idea of America spending massive amounts, trillions of dollars to somehow stop global warming is not a great idea. It loses jobs for Americans, and ultimately it won’t be successful, because industries that are energy-intensive will just get up and go somewhere else. So it doesn’t make any sense at all. My view is that we don’t know what’s causing climate change on this planet. And the idea of spending trillions and trillions of dollars to try to reduce CO2 emissions is not the right course for us."

So in other words, Mitt Romney is guilty of double-talk. He's a snake oil salesman. I quoted from his own book, his own words. I don't trust the guy.

Anybody that said they would prefer Obama over any Republican opponent if it wasn't himself (Santorum) is the real guy that you should not trust. He is a career politician that has only one thing in mind and that is to latch on to another free ride on the public service gravy train.

As for the Romney words you quoted, they really don't say much. The global ice caps are in some cases dramatically reducing in size and climate change is probably the cause. However, the climate has changed many times over the history of the world. Romney went on to say that falling into the "Al Gore trap" of his global warming hoax was not wise. So, I really have no idea what you are trying to say except to misrepresent the facts in the hope of causing some type of emotional reaction by people that are not really paying attention.

I will say one more time, it is your right to not like Romney and prefer Santorum over him. That is fine, but what is not OK is for your constant misrepresentation of the facts and issues involved.

Jammer, quit kidding yourself. You are guilty of the very thing you accuse me of doing.

You spin Romney's record big time, you're a frick'n parrot! Have another cracker! And the Huffington Post to support your Romney talking points?


Romney's half-truth's are disappointing.

Record betrays words:

Comparison of Obama and Romney.

Enacted government run health care: Obama yes, Romney yes

Supported cap & trade proposals: Obama yes, Romney yes

Says one thing, does another, plays word games: Obama yes, Romney yes

Obama: "We will fundamentally transform America."

Romney & his superpac: "Well, of course, it's former staff of mine. And, of course, they're people who support me. They wouldn't be putting money into a PAC that supports me if they weren't people who support me. And with regards to their ads, I haven't seen them."

Just 44 words later on a MSNBC debate night: "But let me tell you this, the ad I saw said that, that you'd been forced out of the speakership, that was correct. It said that, that you'd sat down with Nancy Pelosi and, and argued for, for a climate change bill. That was correct. It said that you called the, the--Ron Paul's, Ron Paul, Paul Ryan's plan to, to provide, to Medicare reform, a, a, a right wing social engineering plan. It said that, that as part of an investigation, an ethics investigation, that you had to reimburse some $300,000. Those things were all true.

But I thought Romney didn't see the ads?

JBS has continued to post lie after lie. I am not going to take the time to address them all as it is a time consuming job to counter every lie that comes from him. I will address only one; where he says that Romney supported cap and trade. That has been proven to be false whether it is JBS or Santorum saying it. Check the following out for yourself.

When a person resorts to lies and misrepresentations to sell their agenda, be very careful of what they are selling.
