Typical Republican thuggery at an Obama campaign press conference in Boston today – it’s being covered at DailyKos:
Here’s a vivid illustration of just how badly Mitt Romney wants to avoid any discussion of his record as governor of Massachusetts: he sent his campaign aides to shout down speakers at a press conference organized by the Obama campaign to discuss Romney’s governorship. Romney aides and supporters repeatedly shouted, screamed, and even blew bubbles and vuvezelas in an effort to disrupt the press conference, which was held in Boston.
Obama campaign senior strategist David Axelrod, who was the featured speaker at the event, told the Romney aides that their efforts to drown out discussion of Mitt Romney’s record as governor would not succeed. “You can shout down speakers,” he said. “But it’s hard to Etch A Sketch the truth away.”
The Etch A Sketch will be used until November – Eric F. will rue the day he let that one slip! I’m glad the Obama campaign is tying Mitt to his abysmal record in this state – and you have to love Somerville mayor Joe Curtatone:
Somerville Mayor Joe Curtatone mocked the the Romney campaign’s efforts. “Thank you for the bubbles,” Curtatone said. “It’s a hell of a lot better than the smoke Mitt Romney blew at us ten years ago and that he’s blowing across America!”
Smoke and mirrors and an Etch A Sketch – that’s all the Mittster has to offer!
