Ad Slams Obama on National Security

From the American Crossroads super-PAC:

Headline at the Daily Caller:

White House shifts spin on Benghazi assassination,
downplays focus on anti-Islam video

Here’s a good poll question: How stupid do they think we are?

    To answer your question in a roundabout way…

    The Left and GOP Establishment underestimated Ronald Reagan. This worked to his advantage throughout his political career.

    In the Left’s eyes, we are all Reagan’s now.

    That is to our advantage. Don’t disabuse them of the notion. In fact, do what you can to encourage them in their misunderstanding.

    Yeah, but the options for that poll question will be:

    * Smart as a 1/32nd Cherokee
    * Smart enough to be Editor of Harvard Law Review
    * The Romney campaign is over!

    As the Blogfather noted this morning, over the last 20 years or so, the decline in critical thinking skills in his students has been marked. Government schooling is preparing a population of mind-numbed drones to support a socialist state.

    If we do not get the federal government OUT of the school business soon, the future is bleak indeed.

    “Now some people say that, uh, that Barack Obama…can’t handle a public debate! But that’s the kind of thing you’d expect to hear from a bunch of Republican! who had so little faith in the American people! that they had to pass my Health Care bill in the dead of night! on a weekend!”

    It’s a devastatingly effective ad. All except the grinning Romney at the end. Totally clashes with the entire message.

    Which is pretty fecking ironic, considering the ed schools have been all about teaching “critical thinking” instead of “rote memorization” for the last 40 years, at least. Doesn’t do much good to teach critical thinking if kids don’t know basic skills like reading.

    Teaching one to read is like teaching one to fish.
