Agreeing 100% With Michelle Malkin – Stop Saying Obama Is A “Nice Guy”

When we all know he ain’t.

This has been a point of contention for me, too…Does the Republican establishment think that the American people can’t handle the truth? Why do they insist on raising the white flag in the battle for hearts and minds, by ceding to the left one of their weakest propaganda points?

It’s so easy to point out all of the things that make Obama a not-so-nice bully, yet the establishment doesn’t even try.

There is a reflexive desire among a certain species of moderate Republicans to be perceived as “civil” by liberal opponents who believe that the mere existence of free-market, limited-government conservatism is an indecent affront to humankind. All aboard the U.S.S. Lost Cause.

This disastrous, bend-over bipartisanship is a hard habit to break. In 2008, Arizona Sen. John McCain rode the “Barack Obama is a nice guy, but vote for me” wave to crashing defeat. In 2012, McCain’s endorsee, Mitt Romney, has made “Barack Obama is a nice guy but in over his head” a standard stump-speech talking point.

Conservatives of good will who’ve watched President Obama brutalize his enemies have one question for the nice-guy niceties: Why, GOP, why?

Romney’s smarter-than-thou strategists explain that he can’t scare off independents and Democrats with straight talk about Obama’s thuggery. But he’s turning off the conservative base, on whom his hold is tenuous. More importantly, Romney’s McCain-lite impersonation is also writing off independents and Democrats who’ve come to realize what the myriad targets of White House bullying have learned the hard way over the past four years: Barack Obama is not a “nice guy.”

Ask Gerald Walpin, the former AmeriCorps inspector general who was pushed out of his job by the Obamas after exposing fraud and corruption perpetrated by Democratic mayor of Sacramento and Obama friend Kevin Johnson. Walpin was unceremoniously fired and smeared by Team Obama. The White House baselessly questioned the veteran watchdog’s mental health and never apologized for slandering him.

Ask the family, friends and co-workers of murdered Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. They have been forced to sue the Obama administration to combat the Operation Fast and Furious cover-up of deadly policy decisions that led to their hero’s death. “I think they are liars, and I would tell them that,” Terry’s father, Kent, said of Obama’s henchmen.

As Townhall editor Katie Pavlich makes clear in her devastating new book, “Fast and Furious: Barack Obama’s Bloodiest Scandal and Its Shameless Cover-Up,” the president, his corrupt attorney general, Eric Holder, and their minions weren’t “in over their heads.” They knew exactly what they were doing and have obstructed investigations into the bloody consequences of their policies ever since.

That’s not “nice.” It’s rotten to the core.

Keep reading –Michelle’s not done by a long-shot – she has a long memory (and so do I) which is why we cringe every time we see this lame-o tactic employed by the “gentleman’s rules” Repubs.

They’re happy to allow Mitt to be portrayed as a stiff, insincere, elitist jerk, while, Obama is gushed over as a “cool”, messianic “nice guy”? Give me a freakin’ break.

They guy who fought tooth and nail to stop the IL version of the Born Alive Infant Protection Act? The guy who is willing to tell Catholics they have to violate their consciences, or else? The guy who actually invoked JESUS to justify same sex marriage?!

I utterly reject this pusillanimous thinking –  the American people can handle the truth — if they’re told the truth.

As Michelle Malkin correctly notes; “Romney’s surrogates insist that conservatives should “stick to the issues.” But Obama’s by-any-means-necessary ruthlessness is an issue.”

Via Bob Belvedere: The Spot on Quote of the Day, Aaron Goldstein: The American Spectator:

…back in December 2011, O’Reilly asked Romney if he thought President Obama was a socialist. To which Romney replied, “I consider him a big government liberal Democrat.” LBJ was a big government liberal Democrat. Calling Obama a mere liberal doesn’t accurately reflect the extent of his radicalism. Aside from killing bin Laden, Obama’s main selling point is that he nationalized GM. It doesn’t get more socialist than that.

Unfortunately, Romney is too cautious to accurately describe Obama as a socialist. I’m not saying Romney can’t beat Obama. But by not properly defining Obama, Romney makes an already challenging task that much more difficult for himself.

Spot-on.

And Willard buys into the Leftist Narrative. They would like nothing more than to see Obama classified as a Liberal, which is more acceptable to the Mushy Middle than the word ‘Socialist’.

Along with Romney repeatedly stating that Obama is a ‘good, but misguided man’, this avoidance of the truth shows that he has, so far, not given us any evidence that he understands what he is up against and that he still thinks the old, mythic rules of political behavior apply. Such thinking is the thinking of a Loser.

Wake up before it’s too late, RINOs.

Apparently Mitt Romney is an unrepentant bully, unfit for command because of something he did to the class sissy in high school.

But Moe Lane has found an example of bullying from Obama’s school days – and his victim was a little girl.

UPDATE:

The latest example of  Obama’s  ruthless political maneuverings:

WSJ: Trolling for Dirt on the President’s List:

Here’s what happens when the president of the United States publicly targets a private citizen for the crime of supporting his opponent.

Frank VanderSloot is the CEO of Melaleuca Inc. The 63-year-old has run that wellness-products company for 26 years out of tiny Idaho Falls, Idaho. Last August, Mr. VanderSloot gave $1 million to Restore Our Future, the Super PAC that supports Mitt Romney.

Three weeks ago, an Obama campaign website, “Keeping GOP Honest,” took the extraordinary step of publicly naming and assailing eight private citizens backing Mr. Romney. Titled “Behind the curtain: a brief history of Romney’s donors,” the post accused the eight of being “wealthy individuals with less-than-reputable records.” Mr. VanderSloot was one of the eight, smeared particularly as being “litigious, combative and a bitter foe of the gay rights movement.”

  1. This is the most frustrating aspect of Willard’s campaign strategy. But, hey, Deb, he’ll make a lovely concession speech in November, so there’s that.

    PS: Thank you for the linky love.

  2. Nice guys do not willingly and decisively destroy trillions of the nation’s wealth, all while selling out the country to known enemies. Nice guys do not do more harm to the country they swore to defend and protect than bin laden was able to do. But nice guys DO LOSE elections if they do not take the task to hand and call America’s biggest enemy out for what he is; a communist liar. I will vote for, in the words of Mark Levin, an “empty tuna can” over SCOAMF, but many will not unless Romney is willing to call his opponent out for exactly what he is.

  3. Obama’s advantage on this front of the political war is that he seldom needs to dirty his own hands. He has a lot of proxies to do the “wet work” his schemes need to eliminate obstructions and defame opponents. That frees him to prattle about “the need for civility;” any “incivility” he requires has been contracted out to one or another of his cat’s-paws.

  4. Every once in awhile, the mask slips, so there are plenty of examples of Obama’s peevish and bullying nature; “I won”, “We don’t need the people who created the mess to do a lot of talking”, “punish your enemies”, “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun”, You would think they’d be saying thank you”, “We don’t mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride” – etc. We’ve never had a President in my lifetime speak like this. More people should be appalled by it.

  6. The meme that our current WH resident is a “nice guy” started with the Republican party leadership, and is raging rampant in the “more progressive” wing of the party (that is, in the wing of the party that would like to call themselves “Democrat” but wouldn’t have the same number of suckers listening to them).

    It is a lie. Mr. “I Won” is not a nice guy, has never been a nice guy, and chances are real good that he never will be a nice guy. So the “leadership” that espouses that lie are liars to boot.

    Just like our Liar-in-Chief president, who it seems wouldn’t know or acknowledge the truth if it hit him upside the head like a two-by-four. Same as our Republican “leadership.”

  10. Obama has never been a nice guy. It’s nothing more than the left’s narrative that has some how stuck in many peoples’ minds. I’ve listened to him and he is very caustic and will not allow a different point of view to be voiced. When John Boehner told him in a 2009 meeting that the republicans had ideas too Obama gave him a go to hell look and said “I won”. The nice guy business is all BS. He is extremely partisan, political and hard headed. He needs to go. Thank goodness I am running into more and more people and many of them are black that have had it with him.
