Civility Flashback: Mitt Romney Predicted Barack Obama Would ‘Surrender To Terror’
Current GOP presidential front-runner Mitt Romney‘s campaign released an ad yesterday in response to a Politico story that outlined some of the Obama campaign’s planned strategies. Romney’s ad chides the President’s campaign for a lack of civility, and cites a quote from an anonymous, non-campaign source. Since Romney’s on the subject of civility, though, I put together a parody of this ad, which includes some of his remarks from his 2008 concession speech at CPAC.
The best part of this is that knowing the punch line doesn’t make it any less funny:
Even before the May bin Laden raid, Republicans publicly and privately marveled/tutted at the Obama administration’s terrorist-killing mojo. They’ve been so successful, in fact, that terrorism won’t likely be a major issue in the 2012 campaign, and the Republicans sure as hell won’t bring it up.
This ad parody, of course, represents just a few seconds from a single speech, and doesn’t begin to scratch the surface of the vile attacks that were leveled against Barack Obama during the 2008 presidential race, and every day since then. While there are people in the world who have standing to wonder whether President Obama’s advisers are being a little too mean by calling him “weird,” Mitt “Obama Will Surrender To Terror” Romney ain’t one of them.
