Spitzer Sums Up Romney Campaign Strategy: Lie About Obama

Mitt Romney was speaking at the NRA today and said, “This administration’s attack on freedom extends even to rights explicitly guaranteed by the constitution: the right to bear arms is so plainly stated, so unambiguous, that liberals have a hard time challenging it directly. Instead they have been employing every imaginable rouse and ploy to restrict it, and to defeat it.” Funny, last time I checked the Obama administration has done nothing when it comes to stricter gun laws. Nothing.

On Viewpoint on Current TV, Eliot Spitzer neatly sums up Mitt Romney’s strategy to win the White House when he responded to one of his guests, Elise Jordan, a conservative commentator. Jordan said the president hasn’t done much for gun control advocates but “Mitt Romney, at the NRA, he really needed to appeal to that audience, because he’s not necessarily their first pick.” In response Spitzer said, “So what I hear you saying is because Barack Obama hadn’t done anything [on gun control], but he [Romney] is at the NRA he’ll make it up. He’ll just kind of pretend a little bit. What is this, he’s running for president, he makes up the record to suit the audience he’s in front of?”

Yes, that about sums it up nicely. Romney lies about Obama to suit the audience and his campaign.
