From American Thinker:
Mitt Romney finally caught up with the rest of us via a fiery speech in Ohio on Tuesday where he proclaimed three simple truths that frame Barack Obama: “Intellectually exhausted, out of ideas, and out of energy.”
Those lines are still too charitable; Obama has been intellectually barren from the beginning. Yet it is irrefutable — to steal an apt word from Paul Ryan describing Obama’s raiding Medicare to finance ObamaCare — that Obama’s idea inventory consists of the expired date-stamped perishables of the collectivist state — tax, confiscate, redistribute, and impoverish.
“Out of energy” indeed will be our deficit of destiny if Obama’s agenda persists to underwrite wind, solar, and ethanol while blocking coal, oil, and gas. Yet Obama has no shortage of personal energy to govern and campaign on a platform of “division … diversion … anger … hate … defaming … and demagoguery.”
The MSM liberal apologists were quick to label Romney’s pick of Paul Ryan as VP an “act of desperation.” Such an attributed motivation is an unintended moment of truth. Yes, we are desperate.
