Urgent Message from Dick Morris
Mitt Romney won the second debate with Barack Obama!
Frankly, Obama's attacks against Romney were nothing less than pathetic. Perhaps the major turning point in the debate — the "aha" moment for millions of undecided Americans — was when Mitt Romney so eloquently listed the key statistics of Obama's record.
The facts about Barack Obama's record are simply indisputable — and disastrous! I have been urging publicly that Romney's campaign focus on Obama's record, not just in public utterances but in campaign ads as well.
This is why — just before the debate — I worked with Super PAC for America to release a powerful new ad that cuts through the political spin and directly cuts to the bone. This ad was released just days before Romney's performance — but it sounded just like Romney's recap of Obama's job performance statistics.
Super PAC for America is dedicated to go directly to the American people to expose Barack Obama for the almost total failure his administration has been. The Super PAC’s 30-second ad opens with a black screen and, in total silence, the following indisputable statistics scroll up on the screen:
—23 Million Unemployed or Underemployed
—47 Million on Food Stamps
—5.5 Million Homes in Crisis/Foreclosure
—$4500 Drop in Household Income
—$5.5 Trillion of New Debt
—$716 Billion in Medicare Cuts
—$2.6 Trillion for Obamacare
—$1.9 Trillion in New Taxes in Obama’s Budget
—100% Increase in Gas Prices
In the middle of this scroll, a roar begins to be heard chanting "Four more years, four more years . . . "
And then when the scroll ends, the chanting ends and a voice comes on and says, "Four more years of this?
"You've got to be kidding!"
The Super PAC for America urgently needs your help to place this ad in key swing state markets across the nation.
No group is running such clear and powerful ads, not even the Romney campaign. That's why I decided to join Mike Reagan, national chairman of Super PAC for America. Mike believes like I do that we can't leave it to chance that Obama's record will be fully exposed.
Mike has also reached out to key advisers who were close to his dad, President Reagan, and helped him win two national elections by a landslide.
Mike is using Super PAC to put together a winning formula to defeat Barack Obama. Mike asked me to serve as Chief Strategist for Super PAC and devise the ads that will speak directly to the American people.
What I like most about Super PAC is that it is not afraid to speak the truth. In the 2010 Congressional elections, Super PAC for America raised millions and played a role in dozens of close House races.
I believe Super PAC was crucial in helping the GOP win a landslide in the 2010 elections.
When I was watching the debate last night and heard Mitt Romney finally and powerfully recite the "facts" that will end Obama's presidency, I said to myself, "YES!"
It was as if Mitt Romney watched our Super PAC ad and finally got the message. All we need to defeat Barack Obama is to tell the American people the facts, simply, honestly, repeatedly.
Here's how Mitt Romney put it in the debate Tuesday night:
"I can tell you that if you were to elect President Obama, you know what you’re going to get. You’re going to get a repeat of the last four years. . .
"He said that by now we’d have unemployment at 5.4 percent. The difference between where it is and 5.4 percent is 9 million Americans without work.
"I wasn’t the one that said 5.4 percent. This was the president’s plan — didn’t get there.
"He said he would have by now put forward a plan to reform Medicare and Social Security because he pointed out they’re on the road to bankruptcy. He would reform them. He’d get that done.
"He hasn’t even made a proposal on either one.
"He said in his first year he’d put out an immigration plan that would deal with our immigration challenges — didn’t even file it.
"This is a president who has not been able to do what he said he’d do. He said that he’d cut in half the deficit. He hasn’t done that either. In fact, he doubled it. "He said that by now middle-income families would have a reduction in their health insurance premiums by $2,500 a year. It’s gone up by $2,500 a year. And if 'Obamacare' is passed — or implemented, it’s already been passed — if it’s implemented fully, it’ll be another $2,500 on top.
"The middle class is getting crushed under the policies of a president who has not understood what it takes to get the economy working again. He keeps saying, look, I’ve created 5 million jobs.
"That’s after losing 5 million jobs. The entire record is such that the unemployment has not been reduced in this country.
"The unemployment, the number of people who are still looking for work, is still 23 million Americans.
"There are more people in poverty — one out of six people in poverty.
"How about food stamps? When he took office, 32 million people were on food stamps; today 47 million people are on food stamps.
"How about the growth of the economy? It’s growing more slowly this year than last year and more slowly last year than the year before.
"The president wants to do well; I understand. But the policies he’s put in place, from 'Obamacare' to Dodd-Frank to his tax policies to his regulatory policies — these policies combined have not let this economy take off and grow like it could have." Well, all I can say is "BRAVO Mitt!"
Mitt Romney was eloquent and persuasive.
But now the debate is over and the spin has started.
Some liberal media groups even had "snap" polls taken saying Obama won the debate! And the major news networks are trying to once again to confuse voters about the real issues.
This makes the job of Super PAC for America so important.
Mike Reagan and I and the thousands of donors to Super PAC for America realize this is a fight for the future of America.
I can't even contemplate a future led by a second-term President Obama We must stop him. We can stop him.
Now is our moment. Help us in this cause today. Time is short!
Yours for America,
