GOP Says Obama’s ‘Hope And Change’ Is Now ‘Hype And Blame’
The Republicans have a new slogan for President Obama. “The candidate of ‘hope and change’ has become the president of ‘hype and blame,'” the party announced today in rolling out a new grassroots campaign. Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus said Obama now “spends his time making excuses for all of his failures,” such as an unemployment rate above 8%.
“He blames everyone and everything except the man in the mirror, from ATMs to the Japanese earthquake to Congress to oil speculators, airport kiosks,” Priebus said. “I think he even blamed bad luck at one point.” In promoting Republican candidate Mitt Romney, Priebus said the party would “expose” Obama’s “‘hype and blame’ campaign over the next several months. and you’re going to be seeing a roll out of that over the next few days.”
Melanie Rousell, a spokeswoman for the Democratic National Committee, said Romney and the Republicans should adopt a new slogan of their own: “Distort and Distract.”
“The attacks coming from the RNC and the Romney campaign completely ignore facts, all of which the American people are well aware — President Obama’s actions helped save the America auto industry, created over 4 million jobs in the last two years, and strengthened the manufacturing industry,” Roussell said.
She added that Romney and the GOP are pushing “more budget-busting tax cuts for the wealthy and letting Wall Street write its own rules—the same formula that benefited a few, but crashed our economy and punished the middle class.”
