Romney Blames Obama for His Campaign Challenges

Source: NY Times

DENVER — Mitt Romney, who has been criticized by members of his party in recent weeks for not campaigning aggressively enough and who trails President Obama in polls in most swing states, placed the blame for his campaign’s struggles squarely on the president himself Sunday afternoon.

Speaking to reporters as his private charter plane flew from Los Angeles to Denver, Mr. Romney blamed his relatively languid campaign schedule — five public events in the past seven days, compared with 11 fund-raisers — on the president’s decision to opt out of the federal campaign finance system four years ago, and criticized Mr. Obama for, he said, “trying to fool people into thinking that I think things I don’t.”

Asked why he was behind in the polls in most swing states, Mr. Romney accused the Obama campaign of distorting his record.

“I think that the president’s campaign has focused its advertising in many cases on very inaccurate portrayals of my positions,” he said. “They’ve been very aggressive in their attacks both on a personal basis and on a policy basis. I think as time goes on, people will realize that those attacks are not accurate and we’ll be able to have a choice which is based upon each other’s accurate views for the future of country.”

This article is a must-read. Romney actually accused the Obama campaign of distorting his position on abortion and on the auto industry bailout, and according to the article, he was calling for fact-checkers, AFTER his campaign had criticized them earlier.

And you should read the article for the full response from Obama spokeswoman Lis Smith, who said of Romney that "it certainly takes a lot of chutzpah for him — after his campaign bragged that it wouldn’t be dictated by fact checkers — to shed crocodile tears over a legitimate discussion of his record and policies." She also said that "If he’s so offended by his own positions, maybe he shouldn’t have taken them in the first place."

44. Remember also that Ryan said they wouldn't spend 4 years blaming the other side

They haven't even gotten elected and they are already blaming the other side for their failures.

This will not play well with the public. Nobody is going to vote for a perpetual victim.

compared to 1 out of 5 ads for Obama. With those odds Rummy should be 20 points ahead. No, its not Obama's fault, its the fault of the idiot running against Obama.

when Romney takes both sides of every issue, and then the first time his VP pick talked everything that he said was a lie. EVERYTHING No one could beat Obama, in the past three years he has helped a lot of people also now that Obamacare is in play it is helping more people everyday. Romney has been bought and paid for and the people know it, the tapes don't lie. Obama will get a lot of Republican Votes due to that tape. WE HAVE TO GET RID OF CANTER.

52. I've been worried about that same thing...

...that a huge push from all those superPACS and slush funds would be swamping the airwaves, but now I don't think so. The time to counter this trend was BEFORE now, if not way before now - before the hard truths about Romney have been set in stone in the minds of the still wavering voters. How there can still be any of that particular subset at this point is beyond me, but I've lived most of my life in the rational world, and some clearly don't.

Of course, there ARE some well-meaning, thinking people that can be swayed by proper argument, but I just don't see that in this cycle.

94. At least that criticism has some connection to doing poorly in the polls . . .

If indeed one's record were being besmirched, and people didn't like you for things you supposedly thought rather than for things you actually thought, that complain would have a legitimate relation to what you were upset about. (again, hypothetically)

But WTF does he mean when he says that his languid campaign schedule (lack of events) is caused by Obama's decision about whether or not to take federal money 4 YEARS AGO?????

WTF does a 4 year old decision by somebody else about how to fund their campaign in 2008 have to do with ROMNEY's current campaign strategy of not having very many events????

That doesn't even have a hypothetical connection to anything, does it?

Please!?! If anyone can explain, I'm here all week . . . LOL.

55. Which position?

 

How can his positions be distorted when he's had so many versions of positions? No matter what you say you will be half right and half wrong.

What a dolt.

I thought it was the Democrats who were supposed to have the "I'm a victim" mentality? Am I behind in the memos again?

70. Hahaha! You couldn't make this stuff up if you tried.

I love Lis Smith's comment that if he's so offended by his own positions that maybe he shouldn't have taken them. Zing!!

85. Romney use to have decent positions on the issues, ones that might have gotten him elected...

however he caved to the right-wing conservatives and the tea party.

Mitt has no one to blame but himself.

80. Surprise! Obama is your campaign's challenger for POTUS in 2012 election

duh
but blame him for offering a challenge
not just handing it over to you
and making you prez without much work
like your entitled ass is used to
hope you are not playing the victim card now because that would be

89. Obama opted out in 2008 to avoid the dilemma that Kerry faced in 2004

2004 was the first campaign affected by McCain/Feingold. Kerry, long time proponent of even stricter campaign finance laws did not opt out - so he had the sme amount of money for a 13 week general election campaign that Bush had for 8 weeks.

This meant he could not throw big dollars in ads at the swiftboat liars without leaving the campaign running on fumes at the end. It was Kerry who was put out by Obama to defend Obama's decision not to accept public money when infinite money could be thrown against him.

As to Obama "lying about" Romney - my question is "on what?" The clearest lie in either campaign is Romney's on welfare. It seems that Romney regrets losing the uneven playing field of 2004.

Not to mention what makes this bogus is Romney could give his campaign a billion dollars if he chose to as his own contribution is not limited.
