  •  The plan: lie and then cheat (16+ / 0-)

    You can see it, the deliberate and all-out reframing of the Medicare issue so it's Obama who is "stealing from seniors and destroying Medicare" and Romney/Ryan who are "protecting seniors by preserving and protecting Medicare." There is no honor, no holding back, and they hope they can just keep calling white black and up down all the way to November.

    Part #2 is of course gaming the voting system in a handful of key states, by voter suppression, machine-rigging, and who knows what else.

    And Part #3 is the racist dog-whistle, louder and more blatant, with full encouragement to the birthers and other wingnuts.

    The last thing they want is a straight up-and-down vote on the differences in policy and principle between themselves and the President. They will do everything money can buy to ensure that never happens.
