My Idea for a Devastating Romney Commercial

We've been treated over the course of the past ten days or so to an exercise in ridiculosity, in which the Obama Campaign attempts to walk itself back from the President's comments made in Roanoke, VA in which he made the famous "you didn't build that" statement.  The Obama Campaign would have us believe that our Constitutional Law Scholar, multiple-degreed, Ivy League President does not understand the the basic English fact that "that" speaks to a singular object (your business) and "those" is what one would choose to describe "roads and bridges" as they would have us believe.  The campaign is worried, very worried. 

But watch the first video again.  And again.  And again.  Even if they are right, even if our oratorically gifted President screwed up, why does that matter.  It's the first part that is offensive.  In his "get your preacher on" voice, followed by an approvingly sycophantic audience, the President mocks both hard work and intelligence.  He did not make a "gaffe" in Roanoke--he gave us yet another glimpse into his true, ideological heart.

But it hasn't been the first.  No, we've had many, many of them.  And the Romney Campaign needs to string them together.  One after another. 

It needs to feature the statements above.

It needs to feature the statement about people clinging to their guns and bibles.

It needs to feature the statement made to Joe the Plumber about spreading the wealth.

It needs to feature statements he has made about the rich paying their "fair share".

It needs to feature statements from his writing, like ""Political discussions, the kind at Occidental had once seemed so intense and purposeful, came to take on the flavor of the socialist conferences I sometimes attended at Cooper Union" - Barack Obama (Dreams of My Father)"

It would feature his statements on taxes, such as:  " "Well, Charlie, what I’ve said is that I would look at raising the capital gains tax for purposes of fairness." - Barack Obama"

At the end of the commercial, the moderator would say, "These statements were not mistakes, they are not gaffes, they are not taken out of context.  They are who Barack Obama is, and what he believes.  And we cannot afford another Obama term in office."

I agree. The most effective commercials are when you use your opponents own words to illustrate this is who they are, what they believe. But as I said in a previous post, this "you didn't build that" remark is so offensive and so un-American and so hard to deny, I think he's finished.

Need to play audio clips of Obama making the numerous promises that he has failed to deliver on then follow EACH failed promise by audio of his famous "JUST WORDS, JUST SPEECHES"

I'd like to see an ad that starts with the POTUS comment and breaks to a small business owner, preferably a woman, ideally a minority woman, saying, the President thinks we should acknowledge all the help the government has given business people in building their businesses. I would like to acknowledge the help I received from the government as I built my business. The first help I received from the government was to cash my check for $2500 for a business permit. The next help was when the government told me to close my business after 6 months until I could install a low flush toilet and new lighting to comply with new EPA standards. The next help I received was the government cashing my $500 check for the penalty of having used the existing toilet and incandescent light bulbs that existed in the business before mine. The next help I received was for the government to cash my check for $50 to process the Affordable Care Act forms they required me to fill out. But don't worry, even with all the government "help", Mr. president, I STILL built this business and I know that if I can overcome all the additional help you have in store for me, you always have your trump card--coming after me to pay my "fair share". Mr President, I built this--and I built it DESPITE your help.
