How do you explain politics, Chicago-style, brutal, ruthless and thuggish, to an America that believes in goodness and decency?
Easy. You lie.
The Obama Campaign, flustered by their RuthlessLeader’s lapse into his native Chicago-speak in Springfield, Ohio, is trying to conjure up a rationale for Obama’s simple gangster phrase in his speech Friday. The exchange between Obama and his supporters went like this:
Obama: And at the time the Republican Congress and a Senate candidate by the name of Mitt Romney -
Audience: Booo -
Obama: No, no, no — don’t boo, vote. (Applause.) Vote! Voting is the best revenge.
Obama as Capone:
I want him DEAD! I want his family DEAD! I want his house burned to the GROUND! I wanna go there in the middle of the night and I wanna PISS ON HIS ASHES!
When questioned about Obama’s Chicago-speak, campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki blurted that Obama had been speaking about Romney’s “scare tactics” in his ads about bailed-out Chrysler adding production of Jeeps in China, saying Romney is:
frightening workers in Ohio into thinking, falsely, that they’re not going to have a job. And the message [Obama] was sending is if you don’t like the policies, if you don’t like the plan that Gov. Romney is putting forward, if you think that’s a bad deal for the middle class, then you can go to the voting booth and cast your ballot. It’s nothing more complicated than that.
Not so fast, Leni Riefenstahl. Obama didn’t even mention the Jeep ads until six paragraphs later. Try again.
No answer? How about this: Obama is the surrogate for thugs, whether they’re the ones in Chicago or the heads of unions, and that’s the way they think and speak.
See? That wasn’t so hard.
