The Horse Sense Blog compares the nonsense in today's news with good ol' fashioned horse sense


“…I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve.… It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.” - Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775


"The further a society drifts from truth the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell

The Obama Campaign Proves They Have No Substance By Their Attacks On Romney

Here’s the Nonsense:  Nothing is more important than finding out about Romney’s taxes and his record at Bain Capital.  The president’s demand for them shows his concern for America.  We need transparent politicians.

Here’s the Horse Sense:  We should be very concerned when a president won’t reveal anything about his past and yet demands that his competitor reveal everything.  The question should not be about Romney, but about what the president is hiding and because of it, why we should trust him.

The mainstream media is working hard to help the Obama campaign try to make the center focus of the campaign about their phony allegations regarding Romney’s tax returns and Bain history.  The continued allegations that Romney has done something wrong are not only nonsense with no evidence to support them, but continuing to pursue them reveals to any thinking person the fraud that is the Obama campaign.  This campaign, this presidency, this president has clearly shown that there is no substance to anything they do, they are about attacks based on inuendo, not fact.  Only a man who has no argument simply screams louder to make make their point.
Trying to villify Romney, the Obama campaign is clearly trying to keep the focus off of themselves.  The reason?  Because they have no positive record to stand on.  Facts are twisted or made up.  Their style is what Saul Alinsky taught, which is to make fun of and make false allegations againsts your competitor in order to kill their credibility.  That will keep people from taking them seriously and thereby give you the victory.

In my new book, No Tomorrows:  How To Halt America’s Imminent Collapse And Return To The American Dream – And Why It Must Start With The 2012 Elections, I reveal the Alinsky connections of Barack Obama.  Understanding who this president is must be a focus of this election because when you see who he is you begin to see through the smoke screen his campaign throws up to avoid focusing on his record and his background.  Since he has a background he wants kept hidden and has no positive record during his time as president to promote, he must destroy the credibility of Romney in order to keep Romney’s credibility in question and take the focus off of himself.
The impact of Alinsky and his views has become enormous in our political system.  Romney should be pointing out who he was and what it means.  But instead he allows Obama to harp on the release of his tax returns, which is a non-issue compared to the president himself and to make false allegations about his time at Bain Capital.  After all, the president has released virtually nothing about himself or his life and yet he claims to have the most transparent administration in history.  Somehow the media doesn’t see anything odd about this.

In psychology there’s something called projecting that anyone who’s ever taken Psychology 101 or been in counseling has probably heard of.  It is the practice of blaming others for what you’re guilty of.  It is often seen as a way to deflect a focus on you and make the focus go on someone else, even if that person is not guilty of it.  If you carefully listen to the president’s claims and accusations against people you will find that the things he usually accuses people of are the very things he is actually trying to cover up.  The suppression of personal records is a perfect example.  No president in American history has covered up more. 
Obama’s school records from kindergarten all the way through law school are sealed and we know nothing about his education other than what he claims happened.  He has kept from the public virtually everything about his life.  In fact, it’s been pointed out that his own autobiography has at least 3 dozen lies in it about his past (see David Maraniss’s recent book, BarackObama: The Story, among other books that go even deeper to see what that is all about).  We know more about any and every American president’s life than we know about this president.

Mr. Romney should tell Mr. Obama that he will release more records when the president opens his school records, medical records, and other documents that he’s kept hidden from the public. 
And the attacks on Romney’s record at Bain Capital are based on nothing but inuendo.  There is no evidence that Romney did anything wrong at Bain or that he committed any misdeeds.  Yet even though the Obama campaign knows this, they continue their attacks trying to discredit Romney in the eyes of the voters.  If Romney is smart he’ll take the offensive.  President Obama has said he won’t back off of this course of attack.  Romney needs to recognize that the president is fighting a war and is out to kill Romney’s candidacy.  Romney still sees Obama as a competitor in a contest.  He must adopt a different mindset if he is to win over Obama in November.
The media won’t hold the president accountable, but the voters can.  There should be an outcry from the public demanding equal treatment and accountability.  As I write in No Tomorrows, the imminent collapse of America is at hand.  We cannot survive 4 more years on the path we are on.  America as we know it is about to end and the only way to stop it is to use the election in November to change the control of the House and Senate in addition to who sits in the White House.  We have less than 4 months until the most important election of our lifetimes.  It is time for Americans to stand up and fight to save this nation.
