Closing Arguments

Closing Arguments

Like the great American trials of the past – Salem Witchcraft, Amistad, Lindbergh, Leopold & Loeb, Rodney King, Timothy McVeigh, O.J. Simpson and most recently Casey Anthony – President Obama finds himself asking for a reprieve from the American people in the trial of the American People v. Barack Obama.

After all, he did graduate from Harvard Law School, where he was president of the Harvard Law Review, and went on to work as a civil rights attorney in Chicago and taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School, so this should be a cinch, right?  Wrong.

The problem with Obama is that he is facing the Perry Mason meets Atticus Finch of opponents in Governor Mitt Romney with an unblemished record in business, government and with the Olympics… not to mention his Boy Scout-like record, perfect family and great optimistic attitude.  The former Governor of Massachusetts claims Obama has failed on the economy and as an extremely successful businessman, Mitt can do better.

The trial is simple.  The American People, represented by Romney, have accused Obama of gross negligence in both economics and foreign affairs.  Many want a guilty verdict that will force Obama out of the White House and send him back to Chicago.  Obama simply wants a reprieve.

Obama’s tactics in the earlier part of the year was to distract from his poor record and discredit Romney.  He spent millions and millions of dollars early on to frame his opponent as an out-of-touch woman-hater who kills people for money.  Mitt Romney fired back in the debates.  He showed tens of millions of Americans that he is nothing like this villain Obama created and sold to the people.  The polls pushed Romney back into the race.

Obama then tried to spin his record.  While unemployment was worse than when he arrived, he touted that he created 4.5 million jobs.  While GDP growth was at the worst level at this point in any recovery history, he touted that these economic indicators are strong and moving in the right direction.  And while Americans were left helpless to die in Benghazi, Libya, Obama touted his foreign policy record while spiking the Osama bin Laden football.  America saw through the false evidence and gave Mitt the momentum to take a commanding lead.

Then, with less than two weeks until Election Day, came Hurricane Sandy, Obama’s quick response and high praise by Republican Governor Chris Christie.  This caused the “Mittmentum” to stop.  Campaigns went on a hiatus and when the storm passed and campaigns restarted, polling showed the race tightened.  Some media outlets even say it is too close to call.

SIDEBAR: It took Obama a day to tour the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in New York and New Jersey.  However, it took him over a week to visit those hit by the tornado in Joplin, MO where 120 people were killed and it took him 13 days to tour the BP Oil Spill, worst environmental disaster in U.S. history and he didn’t even visit Tennessee after the 1,000 year floods nor did he visit Texas during the wildfires that burned down 400 homes.  Just imagine how fast his response would’ve been had there been an election the following week during those disasters…

…We can do better.  This doesn’t have to be the new normal.  Vote for change.  Vote for “love of country.”  Vote for Mitt Romney.

Now, Obama:

My record is indefensible, but Russia loves me.  So does GM’s unions.  I literally party with Hollywood celebrities, rappers and rock stars… some of whom don’t even have high school diplomas.  And Osama bin Laden hates me for jumping out of that helicopter and putting a bullet in his head myself.   Mitt Romney is a liar, a murderer and he hates women.  Anybody that votes for him is a racist.  Forget Hope and Change… Keep it the same and “vote revenge.” Vote for Barack Obama.

That pretty much sums it up.  And now the moment you’ve all been waiting for… the verdict.

My prediction?  The American Jury is persuaded… Romney gets 51.5% of the vote and Obama gets only 48.5% and in the trial of The American People v. Barack Obama, Romney wins with 330 electoral votes to Obama’s 208.

It’s gonna be like 1980 all over again.   Cue up Happy Days Are Here Again.
