So far I have received two of these calls directly from the Mitt Romney campaign here in Wisconsin. One was caught by my answering machine. The expenditure of each of them was in the delivery of informational (or disinformational) content specifically for the attacking of Rick Santorum.
Neither of these robo-calls had anything good to say about their own candidate, Mitt Romney, nor gave any intrinsic reason to vote for that man. No discerned comparison, nor contrast was offered — only the politics of destruction of a fellow Republican. Each left a telephone number: 608-535-9307. I called that number and left a message calling for his Wisconsin campaign office to explain.
In these calls, as in his advertising, Mitt Romney is destroying the reputation of a fellow Republican, Rick Santorum (has he has done with Newt Gingrich) and is not bothering to tell me why anyone should vote for such an accuser and defamer of his Republican colleagues. Therefore, how can I begin to believe that Romney appeals to reason, is a man of Republican principles, and of patriotic integrity, with public service in mind?
Put a good Republican in his way, Mitt Romney will assail him, his future effectiveness be damned.
I am reminded that “accuser of the brethren” is an epithet given to Satan, in the Bible. Also that Ronald Reagan’s “Eleventh Commandment” is constantly broken by Mitt Romney, Etch-a-Sketch candidate that he is – more often than any presidential candidate likely, in anyone’s recorded history.
Essentially, this progressive is engaging in the kind of propaganda for which they are infamous, and along the way, participating in the crippling of any other, far more authentically Republican candidate, should his own psyop campaign not succeed.
That is yet one more reason not to support this bizarrely and outrageously offensive man – not in the Spring, not in the Summer, and if his nomination should come to pass, not in the Fall. If he is nominated, someone else must be found, who is not the lesser of two enemies (see “Gingrich, Paul, Romney & Santorum on Agenda 21 vs. U.S. Sovereignty,” March 19, 2012).
