President Barack Obama said Mitt Romney has locked himself into "extreme positions" on economic and social issues and would surely impose them if elected, trying to discredit his Republican rival at the biggest political moment of his life.
In an interview with The Associated Press, Obama said Romney lacks serious ideas, refuses to "own up" to the responsibilities of what it takes to be president, and deals in factually dishonest arguments that could soon haunt him in face-to-face debates.
..."I can't speak to Governor Romney's motivations," Obama said. "What I can say is that he has signed up for positions, extreme positions, that are very consistent with positions that a number of House Republicans have taken. And whether he actually believes in those or not, I have no doubt that he would carry forward some of the things that he's talked about."
...The president suggested that whatever Romney really stands for in life is secondary to the promises Romney has made in the campaign.
In explaining his accusation of "extreme" positions, the president cited Romney's call for across-the-board tax cuts that Obama said would mostly help the rich at the expense of everyone else and cost the nation $5 trillion. Obama singled out Romney's opposition to tax credits for producers of wind energy, the kind of issue that carries large political resonance in a battleground state such as Iowa.
Here we go with the 30 year Democrat broken record that tax cuts are only for the wealthy. Never mind that the Reagan model created the economic recovery and expansion that set the growth of America economy for decades. In other words, to Obama, Debbie "Thunderlips" Wasserman-Schultz, Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Demonrats, the idea that people are emboldened to take charge of their own destiny through free-market enterprise, the very idea that founded this nation, is extreme.
Really? Is that extreme? I have a better idea of what "extreme" is.
Extreme is someone who is pro infanticide (partial birth abortion)...
Even arguing against saving the life of a baby who survived a botched abortion, calling it a "fetus."
Extreme is someone who sat in a racist, separatist, America-hating "church" for 20 years, hearing "sermons" about "G-Damn America."
and uttered racism.
Extreme is someone who attacks the peaceful, Constitution supporting Tea Party movement, but supports violent, Left wing anarchists, crappers, anti-Semites and squatters called "Occupy Wall Street."
Extreme is someone who believes that the government is responsible for every entrepreneur who is successful.
Extreme is someone who had as an unconstitutional "green-jobs" czar a racist, Communist, cop-killer supporter who not only signed a 9/11 truth petition, but held a rally the night after the 9/11 attacks that sided with the terrorists.
Extreme is a President who thinks the Constitution is a scrap of paper, and he can usurp Congress and the Separation of Powers by executive order.
Mitt Romney is a lot of things. He might have not been the first choice for many of us in the GOP Primary. But one thing is for sure, Mitt Romney is no extremist.
You're the extremist, Mr. Obama, in thought, word and deed.
