Herewith some ideas. Let's crowdsourse this thing. A thousand heads are better than one.
Obamacare: Don’t tax the uninsured! The House GOP should introduce a bill reducing the tax for not carrying insurance to $5 per person. Perhaps that should only apply to people making less than $250,000. Why should we tax the uninsured? Aren’t they suffering enough? The reactions to this will be fun to watch.
Alternatively, or in addition, Romney could say, tongue in cheek, that he will direct the IRS not to punish anyone for failing to pay the tax or carry insurance. That would highlight the lawlessness of the President's immigration non-enforcement.
The Romney Campaign, and/or the RNC should have a crack team going through Obamacare line by line, listing any and all taxes contained in it, and highlighting any bad regulations it contains. They should do the same with any regulations issued by the administration under the law. As they do that, they should also complain that so much of this law is being written by unelected people who are not responsible to their true boss—the American people.
They should also highlight the crony capitalism of it. Obama bought off the big health insurance companies–working with the big guys to help them make money and kill off competition.
Responding to Obama's "Romney is an elite white guy" attacks:
The Romney campaign needs to bring up Solyndra and its many brothers and sisters on a regular basis. Beyond that, they need to focus on Obama’s crony capitalism, all his money from Wall Street and Hollywood, and the billionaires like George Soros who are spending lavishly to get him re-elected, so that they can continue to make money off the government.
The campaign should mention Tony Rezko’s name. How was it that a fixer like that helped Obama buy a house? Did he help Obama get a sweetheart deal on the plot next to his own?
The Romney campaign must become very familiar with Fast and Furious, and highlight it regularly. At the very least, it was a blunder or heroic proportions–a blunder reflecting both Lefty ideology run amok, and the smug arrogance of Obama’s cronies like Holder.
Obama’s background. The President attended an elite prep school in Hawaii and elite colleges, not public school. He spent most of his adult life after that working for an with rich and well connected Lefties, mostly in Chicago. That story tells us a good deal about him, and it bears repeating.
Obama is the product of a class that does not think the average American is capable of self-government. That explains his recent comment that, “this country is at its best when we harness the God-given talents of every individual.” His goal is not to run a government that helps we the people enjoy liberty. It is to harness us, like beasts of burden, beneath our philosopher king.
Obama’s "Bitter clinger" quote should be playing in a continuous loop in the Rust Belt.
The campaign should also play his "hold on sweetie" comment to a female reporter in key markets, full of urban professionals. He probably won’t win those, but it might weaken his fan base.
The overall theme: Obama represents the powerful, not the people. He stands for bureaucracy, not choice.
The smartest man in the world:
Mockery is an important tool, especially against someone like Obama. It hits his image (and his self-image) particularly hard.
The Romney campaign should have a website devoted to Obama’s gaffes, from Obama's 57 states comment, to "corpseman," to his reference to "Cominskey Field" in Chicago, where his "favorite" team plays, to speaking Austrian in Austria (might be fun to get a video from Schwarzenegger on that one), to video of Obama’s pathetic attempts at bowling and at throwing out the first pitch (no red-blooded American mail should throw or bowl like that). This site should have a suggestion box, etc.
Note: I update the original post to add one item I forgot to mention.
