Here's How Romney Can Beat Obama: Opinion

2. Theme No. 2: Obama is a Marxist who will steal everything you own and earn.

This TV ad starts with a gray-haired bearded man reading from The Communist Manifesto uttering "From each according to his ability, to each according to his need." (Yes, I know that sentence was printed in another Karl Marx publication, but who cares for this purpose.) Then he looks up to the camera and says "I am very proud of my ideological descendant, who is perfecting my vision in America this year."

The Karl Marx figure then pulls off his face mask as if it were Halloween, revealing a person who looks just like Obama, saying "Ha ha ha, I fooled you in 2008! I have come to take all of your money and spend it all on millions of government bureaucrats, welfare cases and the Muslim Brotherhood." He would then rise out of the lounge chair and hand an envelope toward the camera: "Here is an IRS bill for 100% of your income, your house and everything that's in your bank account. In college, I may have failed Economics 101, but I got an A in Marxism 101."

The final frames of the video show the U.S. flag morphing into the Soviet flag, with Obama's face printed next to the hammer and sickle in the upper left corner, then fading into a picture of the entrance to a Soviet Gulag with "Hope And Change" on a sign on top of the entrance.

Focusing on some bean-counter argument in Paul Ryan's budget plan as to whether Medicare or Social Security goes bankrupt in 2027 or 2045 is a total loser compared to an ad like this. Once this ad has been hammered 24/7 on all TV programs until November, everyone in this society with an income, house or bank account will shun Obama like a burglar. Welfare cases may still vote for him, but most Limousine Liberals will have been converted away from Obama. Again, a Romney landslide would be the result.

More Where That Came From

These are only two of numerous possible ads that should be run either by Romney or a SuperPAC favorable to his election. I think both organizations should pounce equally hard.

The litmus test for Romney should be: Do the ads cause leftist political commentators such as Chris Matthews to completely hit the roof, crying foul? Do the ads have total shock value? Will some TV channels refuse to show them? If the ads don't hit this kind of level of controversy, Romney and his supporters shouldn't bother. They will have failed. They should just withdraw from the race right now, handing over the baton to Santorum or Gingrich before it's too late.
