Obama’s Closing Argument: Only I Can Save You from America’s Evil Past–and Future

With just one day left before the polls open, Democrats have settled on a closing message to the 2012 campaign that portrays the Obama presidency as a brief moment of enlightenment in America’s bleak past and future.

America used to be a place of economic, racial, and sexual oppression–and it would be again, Democrats argue, if the country turned to Romney instead of rewarding Obama with a second term in office.

That is what Obama means when he invokes the repeated refrain–“We’ve come too far to turn back now.”

It’s an idea expressed more crudely by the likes of Cher, who warned in a new ad: “Don’t let Mitt turn back time on women.”

It’s also expressed by Democrat strategist Robert Creamer–a convicted felon who is closely linked to Obama’s senior advisers and frequently broadcasts the party’s talking points at the Huffington Post.

Creamer designed the political strategy for selling Obamacare to the American public, advising Democrats: “To win we must not just generate understanding, but emotion—fear, revulsion, anger, disgust.” After Scott Brown defeated Martha Coakley in January 2010, he concluded that Democrats had not been negative enough. Those insights have been reflected in the Obama re-election campaign, right down to the final rallies.

In his last column before the election, Creamer tells the story of an elderly woman who was born in 1917 “in a country where there was an unimaginable gulf between a few fabulously wealthy oligarchs, and the masses of ordinary people”; where women could not vote; where blacks suffered discrimination and gays suffered prosecution; and so on.
