Mitt Romney: The perfect "decoy" candidate.Submitted by FromJericho on Mon, 05/07/2012 - 14:51
So, how silly will the Obama campaign feel when they realize they've been duped?... Here's the deal:
Mitt Romney is the GOP's "decoy" candidate. The GOP needed someone that the heavily populated GOP establishment would blindly get behind. The media bought it hook, line, and sinker, and fortunately, so did the Obama campaign. Mitt won popular vote after popular vote and the media kept beating the drum in order for him to gain momentum, but in the words of Admiral Akbar, "It's a trap!". With the Obama campaign believing that Mitt would be the nominee, it began sinking it's campaign resources into defeating Mitt pretty early in the process... and now they're going at him full-force. Little did the Obama camp know that a few sly folks embedded in the GOP had devised a plan way back in 2010 that would alter the fate of the 2012 general election. The Obama camp will have spent millions attacking the wrong guy by August when they will realize that Romney isn't the nominee. This will inevitably send the Obama camp into a frenzy at the last minute resulting in pure chaos. For several months they will have thought they were going up against an establishment GOP puppet with no true contrast to Obama's policies, only to find out that they are now faced with a contender who threatens to draw away their much needed youth vote. The Obama camp will panic as soon as it notices it must go up against a challenger who is adamantly pro-civil liberties, anti-war, anti-drug war, anti-patriot act, etc. It is expected that Obama will then begin seeking votes from the neo-conservative crowd by touting his foreign policy "achievements", but it won't be enough to stop Dr. Ron Paul.
Now, this is all pure speculation on my part. I'm just painting a potential picture of what may actually be occurring. Sure, Romney could be just another John McCain or Bob Dole, but something leads me to believe that things are different this time around and that the rumored "backroom deal" between Romney and Paul might actually be the very strategy that I speak of. Stranger things have happened.
Be sure to thank Mitt for being such a great decoy and don't forget to thank the media for building him up for us. They've done a wonderful job. Now let's get out there and keep pushing for more delegates! The plan only works if YOU work!
