Now that Romney's numbers are going down as fast as Larry Craig went down on his tricks in a public restroom, all of a sudden Romney wants to put the white gloves on and act like a gentleman, when all this time he's dirtied his hands with the most vile accusations against Obama, from treasonable to implying Satan live sin the white house etc.

Smith's response is priceless. When they get to high ground, we'll be happy to greet them there. Love it!

High ground = welfare?????

We'll know Mitt is on the high ground when he releases all his tax returns.
Until then he's lower than a snake's belly in a wagon wheel rut...

Mitt says he has no control over the ads that are run by his 'PACS' so what makes him think Obama has that control over his?

I notice you skimmed right by the FACT that the communication wasn't with the President.

Do you have any idea HOW many people work in the WH?

So the mittens come off and when Romney's attacks fail to gain traction and he gets a fat lip, he cries and wants to put his mittens back on.

Everything is up when you are on the ground.
Does that mean Tricky Mitt will stop lying, after all these years. He is behind in all of the polls. So his lies about Obama and his record aren't working anyway. So it's convenient.

Romney's campaign slogans:

"War is Peace"

"Freedom is Slavery"

"Romeycare must be repealed"

"The individual mandate is a tax in every state except Massachussetts"

" A state sales tax is the same thing as the federal income tax"

" In Massachusetts, there was no welfare from January 2, 2003 – January 4, 2007, only a temporary disbursing of funds for the purpose of tough love"

"De./-ath valley is the highest place within the United States"

Romney's got a plan to improve the economy, but he keeps it with his tax returns and we aren't allowed to see it.

Romney is so low, the "higher ground" would be the eighth circle of hell.

Romney distorts Obama's comments about small business, he blatantly lies about Obama trying to dramatically alter welfate and the perpetrate the mistruth of Obama's "war on religion".

Yeah, thanks for taking the high road Mitt.

Finding yourself at the bottom of the gigantic crater you have just dug yourself is not taking the high ground Mr Romney.

Anybody interested were the Obama Campaign strategy comes from?

RULE 2: “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone. (Organizations under attack wonder why radicals (liberals/Democrats) don’t address the “real” issues. This is why. They avoid things with which they have no knowledge.)

Real issues: Jobs, the economy, federal budget and debt/deficits, taxes, presidential record?

RULE 3: “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty. (This happens all the time. Watch how many organizations under attack are blind-sided by seemingly irrelevant arguments that they are then forced to address.)

Like family dog, wife’s horse, wife is a house wife, Soptic’s wife?

RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. (Pretty crude, rude and mean, huh? They want to create anger and fear.)

Redicule? Like tax returns?

RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)

Herman Cain?

Rule #1. Lie

If he's taking the higher ground he should denounce ads saying that the prez is not an American and that anyone born in Hawaii is not American.
