Right on, Mitt. Keep up the good work.
It's about time you started calling a spade a spade.
Romney unleashes on Obama, accuses rival of running campaign of 'anger and hate'
Published August 15, 2012
Mitt Romney, capping off a five-state bus tour in Ohio Tuesday night, delivered the most aggressive and fiery speech of his bid for the presidency -- accusing President Obama of running a "campaign of division and anger and hate" while taking on what he called an "outrageous charge" by Vice President Biden.

The Republican presidential candidate lit into his White House rival at a rally in Chillicothe, Ohio. Though some of the candidate's speeches are written by staff, aides told Fox News that Romney personally wrote this one over the course of two days. It effectively set the tone for the rest of the week, as Romney plans to head to closed-camera fundraisers through Saturday while handing off the campaign bullhorn to his new running mate, Paul Ryan.

In the address, Romney discarded all euphemisms and claimed recent flare-ups on the trail were signs of a president's campaign gone bitter. He pointed to Biden's claim Tuesday in Virginia that Romney and the Republicans intend to roll back Wall Street regulations and "put y'all back in chains." Romney's campaign called it a "new low," while Romney himself accused the president of being "intellectually exhausted" and out of ideas.

"His campaign and his surrogates have made wild and reckless accusations that disgrace the office of the presidency," Romney told a crowd of thousands at the final stop on his five-state bus tour. "Another outrageous charge came a few hours ago in Virginia. And the White House sinks a little bit lower. This is what an angry and desperate presidency looks like."

He continued: "So, Mr. President, take your campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago."

The Republican presidential candidate also mocked Obama's statements during the 2008 campaign that without fresh ideas "you use stale tactics to scare voters." Romney accused Obama of now making that strategy "the heart of his campaign."
BTW, yes, that last (non-racist) line was deliberately inserted in order to make leftist losers' heads explode and start calling me a racist. - LA
