"Obama took GM and Chrysler into bankruptcy, and sold Chrysler to Italians who are going to build Jeeps in China. Mitt Romney will fight for every American job."
Ugh. I don't even know where to begin with this. The breathtaking amount of cynicism this campaign has the capacity to revel in is astounding, you know?
Now despite all the noise the Romney camp is putting out there with the "We're Winning!" meme, turns out it's really more like "We're Losing!"?
And who wants to bet that when Team Obama accuse them of lying, Romney's campaign will counter by pointing out that no actual reference is being made in the ad that Chrysler is moving production to China, merely that Jeeps are being built in China.
So then let me see if I've got this straight. It's Obama who is the one shipping manufacturing jobs to China? Not Sensata?
Yeah, excuse me for a minute while I laugh at that.
And where in all of this is our esteemed fourth estate? Crickets is where. God help me, but a monkey could do a better job then these politico journos at informing the electorate. At least with monkeys you know what you're getting. No wondering if they're licking each other's asses in back rooms. They have the courtesy of doing it right in front of you.
HuffPo is also hinting that Team Romney might be looking at Wisconsin as the new Ohio. For one, Wisconsin hasn't been barraged with campaign ads like they have in Ohio and may be more receptive to Romney's lies. For another, they've got their "native son" to go around to various homeless shelters and wash clean dishes for them. Lastly, I'm pretty sure they think their ground game in Wisconsin is superlative and they've got Rasmussen showing them tied in Wisconsin at 49.
Fired up and ready to go? Yeah, I think maybe the Romney campaign has been smoking too much of the stuff they've been selling us.

Please, feel free to discuss. Would love to hear your input.
Mon Oct 29, 2012 at 12:53 PM PT: Obama's campaign told reporters today that they will have an ad soon responding to Romney's Jeep to China ad. Adding that they see it as an opportunity to "argue that Romney is willing to stretch the truth to win votes." ya think?
Even better was this little tidbit: "On a conference call Monday, 14 year Jeep worker James Fayson said he was offended that Romney had implied his job could be shipped overseas."
