Obama: RNC Convention Was Black & White TV

From the Politico:

Obama: RNC fare for ‘black-and-white TV’

By REID J. EPSTEIN | Saturday Sep 1, 2012

URBANDALE, Iowa – President Obama didn’t watch the Republican convention, but that didn’t stop him from blasting Mitt Romney’s Tampa party as a throwback to bad times gone by.

“It was something to behold,” Obama said at a farm museum here. “Despite all the challenges that we face … what they offered over those three days was more often than not an agenda that was better suited for the last century. It was a re-run. We’ve seen it before. You might as well have watched it on a black-and-white TV.”

Of course, Obama sees everything in terms of black and white. But was that meant to be a dog whistle? Granted he did not mention ‘Chicago’ or ‘golf,’ but it sure sounds like racist code language to us. Anyway, is he promising that the Democrats’ convention will be ‘TV of color’?

In any case, the United States did pretty well in the last century, as we recall. We even remember watching an American walk on the moon on a black and white TV.

Besides, are we supposed to believe that freedom, prosperity, and the American Dream are now all things of the past?

Obama, who spokesman Jay Carney on Friday said read about the convention in print media rather than watching it on TV, then offered his take.

So Obama didn’t actually watch the convention. He just read media accounts. And yet he thinks he knows all about it. That is typical of the man.

“If you didn’t DVR it, let me recap it for you,” Obama said. “Everything’s bad. It’s Obama’s fault. And Gov. Romney is the only one who knows the secret to creating jobs and growing the economy. There was a lot of talk about hard truths and bold choices but nobody ever bothered to tell you what they were.”

He continued: “And when Gov. Romney had a chance to let you in on his secret, he did not offer a single new idea. Just retreads of the same old policies that have been sticking it to the middle class for years.” …

Meanwhile, speaking of re-runs and retreads, Obama’s policies are straight out of the 1930s New Deal, if not the Soviet Union of the 1930s.

In fact, Obama has been recycling the same tired ideas for at least six years. A habit that the RNC has detailed with a devastating new ad, aptly entitled: ‘We’ve Heard It All Before.’

    I googled Empty Chair Day. Funny I always thought Obama’s suit always seemed two sizes too big too.
