The political gurus who advised Mitt Romney to condemn a plan by a “super PAC” to use Barack Obama’s influential relationship with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright against him in the 2012 campaign will lead the presumed Republican nominee to the same fate as John McCain four years ago, said talk-radio host Michael Savage.
“Romney’s finished,” Savage told his “Savage Nation” audience yesterday. “He’s a fall guy. I’m the only one in the media who told you.”
Savage said Romney was “being misdirected by the very same people who misdirected McCain – who should have won the last election.”
“McCain said, ‘No, I won’t go there, I won’t do that,’ and lost the election.”
Republicans in 2008 naturally voted for McCain, Savage explained, but the independents who decided the election “did not come out for him, because he was nothing but a two-faced RINO,” a Republican In Name Only.
“I can only conclude Romney doesn’t even understand what he’s doing, or Romney is a straight-out fall guy for the Republican establishment, offered a huge payout at the end of the term in the form of contracts, books, lecture tours or whatever,” Savage said.
In an interview with Townhall.com, Romney said, “I repudiate the effort by that PAC to promote an ad strategy of the nature they’ve described.”
Romney said he wants his campaign to “focus on the economy, on getting people back to work, on seeing rising incomes and growing prosperity – particularly for those in the middle class of America.”
McCain told Fox News four years ago that he didn’t believe Obama should be held accountable for the things that Wright said from the pulpit.
But Obama once counted Wright as his chief spiritual adviser, the man who led him to Christian faith, married him and his wife and baptized his family. Obama, who attended Wright’s church for two decades, insisted he never heard the pastor spew the anti-American, anti-white venom now well-known through video clips of sermons played on news shows and posted on the Internet during the 2008 campaign.
But Wright’s adherence to the Marxist-based Black Liberation Theology that animates his preaching is well documented, and it’s implausible that the published clips were anomalies.
