The Gantt Report
If you can’t beat him join him
By Lucius Gantt
If the election of the President of the United States was based on oratorical skills Barack Obama would win his reelection bid by a landslide!
A dynamic and memorable address by the Commander in Chief at the Democratic National Convention was pre-faced by a slew of hard hitting attacks on Republican Party politics and Republican Party candidates.
It’s about time!
The biggest problem Democrats have had in the 2012 election year has constantly been the Democrats failure to respond to the forked tongue attacks by racists, sexists, imperialist and conservative individuals and groups.
But at the national convention, Democrats begin to fight back by pointing out the clear and obvious differences between helping the rich and wealthy and helping the poor and exploited.
If President Barack Obama and the Democratic Party can convince their supporters to go to the polls on Election Day and vote, the coalition of middle class voters, Black voters, women voters, Hispanic voters and disgruntled voters that hate “trickle down” politics pushed by economic vampires and financial criminals, President Oba-ma will be hard to defeat.
My advice to the smart Republicans is if you can’t beat Obama, join him!
It is not unusual for political people to adjust their thinking, change their philosophies, switch their allegiances and reconsider their past support of exposed politicians.
Some say Mitt Romney is the best political gymnast in history because he has flipped and flopped more times than gold medal winner The Flying Squirrel, Gabby Douglas.
The Republican Party can’t beat Obama but President Obama can lose if he can’t put together a nationwide team that can deliver his supporters and Democratic voters to the election booths.
In recent history, Democratic Party field operatives have been a political disgrace. Even though registered Democrats outnumber registered Republicans in many states Republicans have managed to win key gubernatorial and Congressional seats by out working and out smarting Democratic candidates.
Using political science and technology and by hiring political professionals that can deliver political services and votes, the Republican Party has taken political policies that prove nothing and solve nothing and turned those same policies into something!
Instead of hiring political operatives that were experienced, that were smart or operatives that were successful, Democrats chose to employ political charlatans that the Democratic Party could control.
Who can deliver was not a question Democratic Party leaders would even consider when selecting people to pay millions of dollars to get the President reelected and other Democratic candidates elected.
This year the Democratic Party lucked out. God gave them Republican Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates that couldn’t tell the political truth if their political lives depended on it.
Any Republican flip floppers that read this column may want to flip over to the other party before it’s too late! (Buy Gantt’s book “Beast Too: Dead Man Writing” at any major book seller. Like The Gantt report page on Facebook and contact Lucius at www.allworldconsultants.net)
