The Dumbest Editorial Ever?

The San Diego UnionTribune has a really pathetic editorial up, “Romney in a landslide.”

They analogize President Obama to Jimmy Carter and Mittens to Reagan.  And boy do they stretch!  For example, they use the people who went to Chick-fil-A last week to show their opposition to gay marriage as helping Mitt the way frustration over the hostages held in Iran helped Reagan.  Come on, really?

I remember 1980, I remember my husband and I being thrilled to get a mortgage at 14%.  Yes, young ‘uns, 14%.  I remember thinking that if I was voting for Reagan, which I did, having voted for McGovern and Carter, then Reagan was going to win in a landslide, which he did.  But this time I’m voting for Obama.

The people comparing 2012 to 1980 either are too young to remember 1980 or they’re just thumb-sucking, wishful-thinking Mitt-lovers.  The GOP has done its very best to make things as awful as possible for Obama (and therefore for all of us).  They haven’t succeeded in making them Jimmy Carter awful.

1980 was the year of the Reagan Democrats.  2012 is not the year of the Romney Democrats.

  1. Romney in a landslide?!?!

    Have the writers of that editorial ever heard of polls?

  2. Harris Jordan says:

    This has nothing to do with this particular blog but I just thought of it and before I forget I want to say:
    If Jack Bauer would blow the kneecaps off of a terrorist to make him tell us where the nuclear bomb was, shouldn’t Harry Reid reveal the name of his Bain source to blow the lid off Romney’s campaign?
    It’s for the good of the country. In fact, Romney would be worse than a nuclear bomb going off in a major U.S. city.
