Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are counting on one of two things: either you don't know or you don't care. If you fall into any other category they have already written you off. Think for just a moment about the kinds of things you have heard from Gov. Romney and Congressman Ryan. They have told you that the President cut $700 million from Medicare benefits. Not only is that false, Ryan's own budget plan makes real cuts to Medicare. They have told you that Romney planned to save the auto industry exactly like Obama did. False, and anyone who has read or listened to Romney's statement at the time knows this to be false. They have recently made wild and exaggerated claims that they are for the middle class worker. Do I really need to comment on that one? And now Romney is running an ad that accuses President Obama of "selling Chrysler to the Italians who are going to build Jeeps in China. Mitt Romney will fight for every American Job." What a load of horse-crap. Romney knows that no Jeep jobs are moving to China. But he expects that the voter does not know it. And the only job he ever fought for was his own. But my favorite line in the add was this one: "Fact-Checkers confirm Obama's claims are false." We all know candidates stretch the truth when campaigning, but Romney invoking the Fact-Checkers in his own defense is right out of George Orwell or more to the point, right out of Karl Rove's playbook. So, if Romney hasn't done anything to offend you yet today, stay tuned. I'm sure he is working on it. And if you are offended you are probably informed, intelligent and have a memory longer than yesterday. If you aren't offended, perhaps you need to pay a bit more attention.
