Everything old is new again as the Right Wing prepares to resurrect the ghost of Reverend Wright to use against the President in 2012. You know, because that worked so well in 2008. Update: Plan scrapped!

Courtesy of the New York Times:

A group of high-profile Republican strategists is working with a conservative billionaire on a proposal to mount one of the most provocative campaigns of the “super PAC” era and attack President Obama in ways that Republicans have so far shied away from. 

Timed to upend the Democratic National Convention in September, the plan would “do exactly what John McCain would not let us do,” the strategists wrote. 

The plan, which is awaiting approval, calls for running commercials linking Mr. Obama to incendiary comments by his former spiritual adviser, the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., whose race-related sermons made him a highly charged figure in the 2008 campaign. 

“The world is about to see Jeremiah Wright and understand his influence on Barack Obama for the first time in a big, attention-arresting way,” says the proposal, which was overseen by Fred Davis and commissioned by Joe Ricketts, the founder of the brokerage firm TD Ameritrade. Mr. Ricketts is increasingly putting his fortune to work in conservative politics. 

The $10 million plan, one of several being studied by Mr. Ricketts, includes preparations for how to respond to the charges of race-baiting it envisions if it highlights Mr. Obama’s former ties to Mr. Wright, who espouses what is known as “black liberation theology.” 

The group suggested hiring as a spokesman an “extremely literate conservative African-American” who can argue that Mr. Obama misled the nation by presenting himself as what the proposal calls a “metrosexual, black Abe Lincoln.

"A metrosexual Abe Lincoln?" My assumption is that THIS kind of  labeling is an attempt to put a question mark beside Obama's sexuality since the Right Wing simply cannot fathom how somebody, who was not gay themselves, could stand up for same sex marriage.

So THIS is what the Right Wing has been reduced to? Hell this is so pathetic that it comes right out of the moldy dogeared Sarah Palin playbook for attacking the President.

Even cranky old John McCain knew enough to avoid this like the plague.

Apparently the idea is to bring up President Obama's so-called "radical past," while making the case that he was relatively moderate during his first term to lull the electorate into a false sense of security before unleashing liberal Armageddon during his second term. ("It's not what he HAS done, it's what he MIGHT do!" screams the frantic Right Winger.)

And of course the usual suspects from Sean Hannity, to Sarah Palin, to Andrew Breitbart's website are all piling on.

To me this smacks of absolute panic on the part of the Right Wing.  They know they cannot attack the President on his ability to protect America from terrorism, the jobs are coming back, and even gas prices are starting to go down, so what's left?

BOO!!!!
 And according to this poll the majority of Americans believe that Obama will win reelection.

Apparently only the Republicans still believe that Obama will be defeated in 2012. But if that is true, then WHY are they so desperate that they are willing to risk being labeled racists by resurrecting the ghost of Reverend Wright?

But hell if this is the Republican's best tactic, I say "Go for it!:

However if we are going to attack the candidate's religion in this next campaign season I have some rather serious questions about Mitt Romney's faith as well.  (He says while rubbing his hands together in a gleeful fashion.)

Update: Well that did not take long.

According to The New York Times:

Mitt Romney condemned efforts to use President Obama’s former pastor, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, in ads attacking the president, as reportedly planned by a “super PAC” working toward electing Mr. Romney in November.

The guy whose name this plan was named after is doing damage control as well:

Joe Ricketts is a registered independent, a fiscal conservative and an outspoken critic of the Obama administration, but he is neither the author nor the funder of the so-called Ricketts Plan to defeat Mr. Obama that The New York Times wrote about this morning. Not only was this plan merely a proposal — one of several submitted to the Ending Spending Action Fund by third-party vendors — but it reflects an approach to politics that Mr. Ricketts rejects and it was never a plan to be accepted but only a suggestion for a direction to take. Mr. Ricketts intends to work hard to help elect a president this fall who shares his commitment to economic responsibility, but his efforts are and will continue to be focused entirely on questions of fiscal policy, not attacks that seek to divide us socially or culturally.

But..but..how can they possibly not like this plan?  After all Sean Hannity and Sarah Palin LOVE this idea. Oh, right.

Well personally I am saddened by this news. I had all kinds of great ideas for going after Romney if he took this approach. 

Oh well I am sure the next idea will be almost as stupid. After all, it IS the GOP we are talking about.

    1. This is the most interesting part of the NYTimes article....

      "A copy of a detailed advertising plan was obtained by The New York Times through a person not connected to the proposal who was alarmed by its tone. It is titled “The Defeat of Barack Hussein Obama: The Ricketts Plan to End His Spending for Good.”

      I really want to shake the hand of the person who sent this document to The NYTimes...they did a wonderful service to the country.

      Shining the light on these Kochroaches and their ilk is the only way to exterminate them....metaphorically speaking of course!

      Sure did. When I heard about this yesterday I immediately emailed the Chicago Cubs and told him we would be spending our team loyalty with the Chicago White Sox, including my two young sons. I'm sure I wasn't the only one doing so. Ricketts is a greedy ass, and now that we know his politics we will still not be Cubs supporters and may even join protests at Wrigly Fieled

      The Cubs are such a shitty team, that it has been based on ambience that they draw. Take away that and add a view of putting an anti-Obama, inflammatory racist on the receiving end of overpriced ticket profits = one empty ballpark.

      Rover, you left out the best part. The Ricketts family has been trying to convince the Governor and Mayor that state and city money should be used to renovate Wrigley Field. They actually hoped something would happen during the spring legislative session this month.

      It hasn't been a very popular idea and became less so today. There's the small matter of the Mayor of Chicago being the same guy who was President Obama's first Chief of Staff. Rahm is not happy with the Ricketts family right now.

      I don't care what he said as he was back peddeling on his dumb ass plan. Joe Ricketts is a moron for putting his family's business interests in Chicago in such jeopardy.

      And if today's talk radio is any indication,there are a whole lot of Cub fans who are furious with the team owners.

    I think that after a first term as president, President Obama does not have to worry about Rev. J. Wright this time!

    And what is it with billionaires? First Adelson funding the crazy governor in Wisconsin to do away with jobs and collective bargaining and now this Ricketts character who wants to eliminate a presidency that has done so much for so many people. How can these guys get any richer? Isn't there a point where having more money becomes meaningless? I've never been there but I'm truly curious. How many yachts, mansions and exorbitantly priced clothing can a person have?

    2. His great-great-grandfather Parley Pratt had TWELVE wives and 30 children. He's my favorite.

      Yesterday in some speech, Romney brought up his ancestors and how proud he was of them "standing on their principles, blah, blah..". I wondered if he meant like the Mormons who slaughtered 120 people in the Mountain Meadow Massacre. His people were in Utah when it happened (1857) but wasn't a Romney named as one of the 50 attackers. Well, other than that the massacre was rumored to have been ordered by Brigham Young as retaliation for Parley Pratt having been murdered by a man from the same area as the people who were killed in the wagon train. John McLean murdered Pratt 3 or 4 months before Mountain Meadows.

      As a graduate student, I researched the history of Grand Teton National Park, Jackson Hole WY. That led me to the Congressional Records of the 1850s and investigations into abuses of pioneers heading west by the Mormons. The Mormons "owned" the river crossings and were taking everything from the pioneers to let them cross.

      I also documented hundreds of miles of Mormon-built irrigation ditches in the Park, as they were expanding into this area as well. I believe it was a Rockefeller who set up a dummy Mormon-owned group, a fake, to buy up the land. Guess they'd only sell to Mormons.

      Anyway, that's why we have a beautiful park today.

    Following up on the Palin Curse: When Palin was the VP candidate in 2008, she wanted to invoke the horrors of Rev.Wright in every one of her campaign speeches. Even then, the McCain campaign told her that was not a good idea. What didn't Palin understand about the Witch Doctor blessing Palin tapes?

    Count on Palin to weigh in with her two cents worth, that Ricketts should never have backed off, and given half a chance (and a potful of money) she'd be glad to do the job.

Which, of course, would explain the title of the Republican Super PAC campaign playbook that was somehow leaked to the New York Times by a staffer who was troubled by the playbook’s contents; “The Defeat of Barack Hussein Obama; the Ricketts Plan to End His Spending for Good.”

    Note the presence of the middle name. It’s not potent enough to defeat Barack Obama. They have to defeat Barack Hussein Obama.

    But then? Later on the same day? May 17? Somebody else in another Team Romney decision-makers chair decided maybe this wasn’t such a good idea after all to try and tie Obama to his ex-pastor whom he cut off long ago. So another ‘whoops, my bad’ story had to be run to clean up the mess. Could have even been Romney who pulled the plug, although I’m guessing he would have had to do it through channels since there isn’t supposed to be any direct contact between the candidate and his Attack PAC. That’s what they say anyway.

    All that money those Super PACs are raising, and this is what they come up with?

    I just stopped by bully boy Hannity's show (I could tolerate it only because I've taken a pain pill for an abcessed tooth.) He was thrilled to be playing Jeremiah Wright tapes and talking about him.

    I have seen and heard Palin many times say Wright should be brought up. I bet she is thrilled. Ricketts pumped money into Deb Fischer's race, Palin endorsed Fischer and Ricketts wanted to pump money into Jeremiah Wright smears. Extremists sticking together.

    REv. Wright old news....sure. Not wanting to have the "Morman Agenda" exposed....priceless.

    According to the information that Thom Hartman had ready to use, Willard as a seventh generation Morman is the "annointed." Unfortunately, now the public wont get to know the truth...

    No wonder this dude and "queen Ann" appear so intitled....they are...according to the Book of Morman.

    Rev Wright is a decorated war hero, unlike that yellow bellied coward of a draft dodger Swiss Mitts.

    A few posts back, I wrote that it's gonna get real ugly real quick, they have a six month window to drum up the racist hate the tea party started.

    The best part was Mitt's response, perfect ammo for the Obama Campaign.

    When this broke, I adjusted my portfolio and changed Credit Unions, because they have an "ATM" agreement with Toronto Dominion Bank (TD)

    Vote with your dollars AND your ballot.
