POLITICO reported that Democrats want to portray Mitt Romney as Don Draper, a character on "Mad Men," a TV show about an advertising firm in the 1960s.
Unlike "Bewitched," this is a drama that wins tons of awards. Unlike "Bewitched," not many people watch it, as it averages fewer than 1.5 million viewers a week.
"Democrats, despite the potential perils of such a strategy, remain determined to paint Romney as a throwback to the 'Mad Men' era - a hopelessly retro figure who, on policy and in his personal life, is living in the past," Politico reported.
Let's see, rich, handsome and popular.
No, I cannot think of a single man in America who wants to be any of those things.
And the press says Romney is out of touch?
"President Barack Obama has noted the presumptive GOP nominee uses archaic turns of phrase such as 'marvelous' and warned in an email to donors Thursday that his rival would usher in 'a social agenda from the 1950s'," Politico reported.
That is the Democratic strategy?
Obama will not run on how his $787 billion stimulus worked?
Obama will not run on how his Obamacare health insurance plan worked?
Obama will not even run on how he won the Nobel Peace Prize and how he single-handedly made the decision to allow the Navy SEALs to go ahead and kill Osama bin Laden?
The campaign strategy is to have Obama spend the next six months mocking Mitt Romney because he is rich, handsome and popular?
Because while all these eggheads from the Ivory Towers of the Ivy League are chortling over the 1950s, baby boomers will be recalling the 1950s were a far better time than the 1930s, which Obama's economic policies have taken us to.
The baby boomers who will decide the election were kids then. Their memories of the 1950s are in sepia photos from the family Brownie - and one professionally taken photo.
Is there any boy in his 50s or 60s who did not sit in his cowboy hat atop that pony? That was the most photographed pony in equine history.
TV was new. The 1950s were a time of Buffalo Bob and Howdy Doody. Boys wore coonskin caps and sang the "Ballad of Davy Crockett."
