Everyone Go Sign Mitt Romney’s ‘Stop Hitting Me’ Petition
Mitt Romney has a never-ending list of complaints about things President Obama is not allowed to criticize him on --Medicare, his business career, taxes, things of that nature -- but the Obama campaign simply won't stop. The only way to stop this now is to get the people involved. We must all sign this petition to
get our names in the Romney contact database end the hurtful attacks on Mitt Romney during this most important of elections. Will you, reader, "sign [this] petition if you agree President Obama should take his campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago"?
From the new MittRomney.com venture, "America Deserves Better":
President Obama's campaign and his surrogates have made wild and reckless accusations that disgrace the office of the Presidency. Another outrageous charge came yesterday in Virginia. And the White House sinks a little bit lower.
This is what an angry and desperate Presidency looks like.
President Obama knows better and promised better; and America deserves better.
Sign the petition if you agree President Obama should take his campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago.
Former Democratic strategist Peter Feld raises a good point in his response to "Mitt Romney" on Twitter: "complaining about tactics makes you look weak. Like a wimp. Man up. And where do you come off maligning a major US city?" Indeed, how do Republicans get away with trashing the third largest city in the United States, constantly? This geographical license Republicans have to play their base off of City Folk has always fascinated your Wonkette. Democrats win like 80%+ of the vote in major cities, but also need to either win or keep margins close in suburbs, small towns, etc. They get no advantage from outright insulting certain demographics. Republicans have ceded the urban vote so sharply that they gain by insulting major metropolitan areas and the people who live in them as craven monsters. See Pfotenhauer, Nancy, for a prime example.
