The Upcoming Attacks on Mitt Romney

Fresh off a decisive victory in Illinois and an ever increasing advantage in delegates, Mitt Romney seems all but certain to be the Republican nominee to face President Obama.  Although some of Romney's Republican opponents have at times claimed there to be no real difference between the Governor and the current administration, the reality is that this election will afford Americans a clear choice over what direction they want the nation to pursue.

The Obama campaign and his liberal allies are already plotting their lines of attack against Governor Romney.  Like other unpopular incumbents of the past, they understand that their best chance at winning re-election rests in making their opponent unacceptable to most voters.

In anticipation of what is to come, I thought I would provide all of you with a preview of what will be said.  With each major talking point, I'll even break down the facts surrounding each claim and whether or not you should believe it in the debut of the Coelh-i-fact rating system.

In light of the recent "Etch-a-Sketch" comments, the left will be telling you that one candidate is nothing more than a naked opportunist, willing to say whatever is needed to get elected only to ignore those promises once in office.  This is rated true.  One candidate does have a proven history of making campaign promises while running to be chief executive, only to go back on them the minute he takes office.

The other candidate is named Mitt Romney.

One candidate will be attacked for being too closely tied to Wall Street firms and banks.  This is rated true.  One of the major party candidates of 2012 has a proven record of soliciting money from major banking firms, having raised more cash for these titans of Wall Street than any candidate in American history.

The other candidate is named Mitt Romney.

Team Obama will tell you that one nominee will simply be a rubber stamp of support for his big business friends' projects, willing to give them anything they ask for.  This is rated true.  There is a candidate who has proven himself to be a blank check for his supporters in the business community, willing to spend hundreds of millions in taxpayer dollars to prop up the failing enterprises of major donors.

The other candidate is named Mitt Romney.

They'll tell you that one of the candidates is a robber baron, a man who invested in companies only to then lay off thousands.  This is rated true.  One of the two major candidates was a part of a multi-billion dollar investment in one of the nation's largest companies, only to watch as the company proceeded to lay off thousands of people.

The other candidate is named Mitt Romney.

Liberals will proclaim that there is a candidate who would be unable to properly represent America in foreign diplomacy.  This is rated true.  One of America's options is someone who has no problem selling out America's allies while gaining nothing in return.  This person cannot even handle the simplest matters of etiquette with one of America's closest allies.

The other candidate is named Mitt Romney.

Obama will say America cannot afford to elect an extremist.  This is rated true.  We will face the prospect of electing someone who does not reflect the will of the majority of Americans, stubbornly clinging to an ideological legislative effort that most people despise.

The other candidate is named Mitt Romney.

The Democrats will talk about there being one candidate who is simply too well off and out of touch to understand the needs of everyday Americans.  This is rated true.  One nominee spent his college years entrenched in the Ivy league, has spent the vast majority of his adult life outside the private sector, and has a net worth of over 10 million dollars.

The other candidate is named Mitt Romney.

As they close their argument to the American people, Obama and his allies will tell you that the man who embodies all of the above statements cannot and will not lead the United States for the next four years.

That final statement is rated I couldn't agree more.
