If you hear a loud "beep-beep-beep" over the next few months, it's likely to be the Obama/Biden garbage truck backing up to dump another load of stinking, rotting refuse into the hungry mouths and empty heads of liberal voters and the mainstream media.
The man who said he would "change Washington politics" in 2008 has actually kept that promise, lowering political and personal attacks into a gutter which would make a maggot gag.
You've already heard from Obama's political operatives that Mitt Romney gave a woman cancer and laughed gleefully at the news of her death. But the same team who produced that fact-free commercial is happily bragging that they are going to be releasing "more incendiary" ads soon - including ones that suggest contact with Mitt Romney causes people to commit suicide. And if that's not bad enough, they claim that they've got other commercials which are even more emotionally inflammatory (or should we say libelous?) "in the can." Which is no doubt where they belong.
And Obama's Chicago attack machine has been quick to go after Paul Ryan, pointing out that he is young, annoyingly white, lacks private sector business experience, and is a novice on foreign relations. All of which could have been said of Barack Obama in 2008, except that he was annoyingly half-white.
But they're not stopping there. When Ryan released his economy-saving budget ("A what?" asked a genuinely puzzled Harry Reid), the Dems were quick to film an ad with Ryan pushing an old woman in a wheelchair off a cliff. But why? Because - according to the information added to Barack Obama's own website in the past 48 hours - the Ryan plan would increase senior's health costs by $6,350 a year! Yikes!
Except it's a complete lie. The Ryan plan specifically calls for NO changes in Medicare or its costs for anyone currently 55 or over. And it turns out (surprise!) that all seniors are 55 or over. Then again, the Obama team has never really been strong on math. Which is why without the Ryan Plan, all of Medicare will be going over that cliff soon.
The battle lines of the 2012 election are now clearly drawn: Romney/Ryan are going to put forth specific ideas for addressing America's very real problems... and Obama/Biden are going to do everything in their power to lie about their opponents and smear their reputations.
But what else could they do? Because Obama, Biden, and the liberal left have nothing else to talk about other than the nearly unbelievable amount of damage they've done to our country in 4 years.
And they'd rather not talk about how much more damage they hope to do in the next 4 years.
