Apparently not, since they are basing one of their campaign memes on making Romney into the cartoon villain in the upcoming Batman movie.
Naturally the Jon Stewart crew is working on making sure their demographic not only knows this, but believes it.
Now this may sound like an incredibly stupid inane tactic to you, but Democratic advisor Christopher Lehane seems to think that liberal trickery is going to work on a gullible public. Fox:
"Whether it is spelled Bain and being put out by the Obama campaign or Bane and being out by Hollywood, the narratives are similar: a highly intelligent villain with offshore interests and a past both are seeking to cover up who had a powerful father and is set on pillaging society," he told the newspaper.We aren't even going to MENTION the hypocrisy of Obama's people criticizing Romney's "offshore interests."
But did you know that the creator of the original 1992 Batman "Bane" character scorns the comparison? The Blaze:
“I saw it on FB like two hours ago. Ridiculous. Tho’ I got a cold feeling in the pit of my stomach that Rush (Limbaugh) may pick up on this. And that would be the second time he pegged me and Graham as liberals on his show.”
In another post, he wrote: “Overgrasping Dems? Hey, if it gets Obama supporters into theaters. Maybe they’ll buy thousands of Bane toys to throw at Romney. It all adds to MY Bane capital. I wonder if the Romney campaign will contact me."Why this all matters is a mystery, particularly since Obama's own advisors, including his budget guy, are from Bain and support Bain's policies:
His own budget director is a Bain guy who married a Bain gal.In fact, Obama, in this cycle alone, has accepted money from Bain officials.
Jeff Zients is the head of the Obama administration's Office of Management and Budget. "Like Mitt Romney, the man who would unseat his boss, Mr. Zients (rhymes with science) got his professional start at Bain Consulting," the Wall Street Journal reports.
Each time an Obama apologist tells you that Bain Capital is the root of all evil in the economy, remind them that President Obama has accepted $34,250 from employees of Bain Capital so far this cycle.
Yet a top Obama bundler and current Bain employee who was at Bain at the time Romney was there is apparently not accountable for anything bad that happened?
NRO wants to know why Romney, who wasn't there, is supposedly "responsible" and the Obama bundler was not:
Heck, if Anderson Cooper seemed to understand the hypocrisy behind the Bain criticism.
And then dropped it.
