In a stunning news development Monday morning at 2 AM EST, the Romney campaign released a series of advertisements in northeastern states questioning the Obama's administration's commitment to stopping extreme weather events:
Romney direct to camera: "Over the past four years we have experienced snow storms, hurricanes, and all variety of weather events. What has the Obama administration done to control the weather? Nothing. We all know this. He has been a miserable failure. I want to promise you, that if elected, you can expect Big Change. As governor, I personally intervened to prevent hurricanes from approaching my state. Based on my experience as a very successful small business man, I have personal experience in directing the weather. I want to be the president of 100 percent. No. Did I say 100 percent? I mean, 1000 percent of everyone who is a registered eligible voter in all states.
About a decade ago, I was called to duty in order to save the Salt Lake City Olympics. There were concerns that the Winter Olympics might not go on as scheduled, due to unseasonable tropical temperatures. With a combination of public-private sector partnerships, I was able to bring snow to the 2002 Salt Lake City games and it was a huge success. Unlike the failure in London this past August.
Please don't fact check any of these statements, liberal media.
Scratch that. Fact check it all you want, it won't effect what I say.
Vote for me, I'm Mitt Romney and I approve this message, because I can control the weather."
In a convergence of coverage, Fox News pre-empted its hurricane coverage with a "documentary" narrated by Hannity and and "special guest" Glenn Beck which features a heavily doctored version of the film the "Perfect Storm" with voiced over dialogue. The "documentary" simultaneously blamed Obama for not doing enough to control the weather, and asserting that he was controlling the weather in order to bring a Communist agenda to America. The piece ended stating that "only Mitt Romney has the power to control the weather."
