Playing the Race Card

Posted by Warren Peterson on August 31, 2012

Show a color photo of President Obama or better yet one of him with his family.

Mention Obama’s name in the same sentence with Chicago.

Ditto for Obama and Kenya.

Feature African-American elected officials or Hispanic ones at a Republican event.

Have a white, aging Hollywood star debate an empty chair representing Obama.

Say you hope Obama fails.

Or even make that you hope Obama’s policies fail.

Blame the President for the state of the economy.

Point out that the truly racist KKK types are a small minority and represent neither party.

Note that a single racist sign among hundreds of political signs at a Tea Party rally does not mean the Tea Party is racist.

Speak or write any disparaging comment about Obama’s background, politics or performance.

Do any of the above and you are a Republican or just endorse Romney for president, expect the wild-eyed liberals to scream RACIST at you.

It is more than hypersensitivity. Sadly, it is an Obama campaign strategy designed to silence opposition and change the subject from the economy. It may be successful in winning or retaining some votes but it is divisive, hate based and contrary to the Hope and Change promised in 2008. One man speaking out strongly against this strategy could stop it. That man is you Mr. President. Your Sister Souljah moment is now.

Can Romney Connect with the People?

Posted by Warren Peterson on August 31, 2012

Is Mitt Romney an out of touch, hater that is in the race for president only for himself and his rich friends? Or is he a truly compassionate but private person whose faith is lived out in his actions? Well if you only listen to MSNBC for all your news, you may have missed the comments from a couple that experienced the private Mitt Romney first hand. If you think compassion is a required trait of a president or you believe the left’s relentless assault on Romney’s character, watch the You Tube video below. Keep a tissue handy.

Mitt Romney – Think About It!

Posted by Warren Peterson on August 18, 2012

I received two e-mails today both of which should make the election of Mitt Romney as POTUS your highest priority.

The first one said:

Subject: Think about it

If Mitt wins the nomination, I will enthusiastically support his candidacy. For my friends who have hesitation on that score, I’d just ask you to keep four things in mind:

1. Justice Scalia just turned 78.
2. Justice Kennedy will turn 78 later this year.
3. Justice Breyer will be 76 in August.
4. Justice Ginsburg turned 81 about a week ago.

In addition, Justice Ginsburg has cancer. Justice Stephens has already said he would retire and is just waiting for Obama to be reelected. The next president could appoint as many as 4 new Justices over next 8 years. This election is about more than ObamaCare Tax.

We wish them all well, of course, but the brute fact is that whoever we elect as president in November is almost certainly going to choose at least one new member of the Supreme Court, in addition to hundreds of other life-tenured federal judges, all of whom will be making momentous decisions about our lives for decades to come.

If you don’t think it matters whether the guy making those calls is Mitt Romney or Barack Obama, I think you’re smokin’ something funky. So for anybody who is thinking of not voting because your favorite didn’t get nominated, or writing in a candidate who can’t win, imagine this:

SUPREME COURT JUSTICE ERIC HOLDER?

After you have stopped gasping, kindly forward this to your list of concerned citizens…..

And the second one is a short video.
