Tadah!!! More bald eagles and Jesus.

As polls now show Obama widening his lead in key swing states, multiple reports are emerging this morning that the Romney campaign has made a calculated decision to shift its message away from the economy. Buzzfeed reports the Republicans are now calling for more cowbell God and patriotism and rabid Obama-hating:

But out stumping day to day is a candidate who wants to talk about patriotism and God, and who is increasingly looking to connect with the right’s intense, personal dislike for President Barack Obama.

Three Romney advisers told BuzzFeed the campaign’s top priority now is to rally conservative Republicans, in hopes that they’ll show up on Election Day, and drag their less politically-engaged friends with them.

Politico similarly reports that the Romney campaign has recently decided to shift focus. Rather than simply focusing on Obama’s failure to fix the struggling economy, Republicans have now asked themselves “Why limit ourselves to the economy? Why not just blame Obama for everything?”:

[Chief Romney strategist Stuart Stevens] said the economy is likely to remain “the dominant focus” of the campaign. But ads and speeches will focus on a wider array of issues, including foreign policy, the threat from China, debt and the tone in Washington.

Stevens said the big, unifying question will be: “Can we do better on every front?”

    God must be so flattered that he is the Republicans' back-up plan.

    When in doubt, God, patriotism, and xenophobia.

    No difference between Romney(care) and Obama(care), yet another violation of our rights. The gov’t constantly violates our rights.

    They violate the 1st Amendment by caging protesters and banning books like “America Deceived II”.

    They violate the 4th and 5th Amendment by allowing TSA to grope you.

    They violate the entire Constitution by starting undeclared wars.

    Impeach Obama, support Ron Paul.

    Last link of “America Deceived II” before it is completely banned:

      Please provide a list of books that the Obama administration has banned. If you cannot, I think it's fair to assume that your post is a complete lie and nothing more than cowardly desperation to sell a few more copies of something no one cares about.

      While you're talking about how the government takes away our rights please take a second to think that the same government system gave you those rights you are referring to.

      Not saying you're wrong in the restrictions, but there is always more to it

      THe government only lets the TSA grope us for our own protection; if they didn't do that, we would all be at huge risk from more terrorists wanting to hurt our asshole country. You may not like it, but it's true.

        It has been shown that the tsa has not stopped any of the experimental attempts to take forbidden items onto a plane, in fact someone got a gun onto one.

        I think it is funny that this was exactly what the terrorists were trying to do, get everyone so worried about an attack that the people in the country would lose all of there freedoms, and gladly so.

        The terrorists won with one attack on America, the next which we all know is just a matter of time should push the American system into more of a police state and the terrorists will be sitting laughing about how they actually managed to remove Americas freedoms so easily.

    During my fundamentalist (R) upbringing I was tought that Mormonism was a cult. I wonder how this plays with the conservative base.

    So instead of trying to get voters who may be on the fence to vote for him he is going to focus on people that were already going to vote for him….smrt.

    The whole "America Deceived II" thing is such BS. This book has not been banned by anyone and this is all part of their shi**y marketing ploy for this piece of junk. The thing even has some fake Homeland Security warning on the cover. Ridiculous.

    Or you know could do with the fact that we just got attacked(Patriotism) and the fact that it was a religiously charged attack(God), see clearly common sense is overriden by agendas

    The RomNEOCONS wrap themselves in the American FLAG but NEVER wrap themselves in an American UNIFORM.

    FIVE GENERATIONS of Romneys have REFUSED TO SERVE this Nation.

    (1) GREAT-Grandpa Romney ran to Mexico to dodge American laws, then FLIP-FLOPPED back to America when Mexico got dangerous.

    (2) Daddy Romney NEVER SERVED through WWII and Korea.

    (3) MITTENS Romney used "missionary" deferments to DODGE the Viet Nam draft.

    (4) FIVE sons, and NOT ONE ever wore an AMERICAN UNIFORM.

    The only thing "conservative" about the Romney Family is conserving THEIR OWN BEHINDS.

    Romney has never been engaged in "business". He was engaged in "finance" and nothing more than that.

    Will Romney support your 2nd Amendment RIGHTS? HAHAHA He will ban them FASTER then Obama. He SIGNED a Weapons Ban that is still in effect in Massachusetts!!!

    GOOGLE "The White Horse Prophecy". Romney is a mental case.

    Romney thinks the only problem that's facing America today is that rich people don't have enough money, he is bent on solving that problem with his tax cuts and tax giveaways for the rich, and for multinational corporations, at the expense of WORKING Americans.

    When Mitt Romney left the governor’s office, he took the unprecedented step of taking all of his staff hard drives and the mail server with him, despite the fact that the drives and all of the information on them were the property of the People of the State of Massachusetts. What was he so DESPERATE to hide?

    By the way, Is Romney afraid the Mormon Church will find out he has been CHEATING on his tithing if he releases his TAX RETURNS?

    We have an interesting political system, in that we come down to 2 men/women to choose from for our president. And since we as a majority do not agree with either candidate on 100% of his/her views, in order to vote, we must decide which of the 2 offends us the least. So unfortunately our vote becomes based on a negative instead of a positive. Ouch.

    Anyway, since neither gentleman currently running is a perfect fit, I have to choose which one has values closer to mine and my view of America.

    I believe many people continually try to get to America because it is perceived as the land of opportunity across the world. I would like to maintain that. I believe one of the gentlemen also wants to maintain that, and the other chooses to try to change us to a land of redistribution. That makes my choice clear.

    Vote wisely.
