Knock President Obama, NOT Mitt Romney, Frustrated Nitpickers

Obama's re-election would be a catastrophe for the limits of government, the possibilities of freedom and traditional American values, and Ingraham knows it.

Unfortunately, Bill Kristol isn't the only frustrated Obama critic inadvertently helping him by complaining about Mitt Romney. See "Mitt Romney is better off ignoring Bill Kristol's advice" (www.renewamerica.com/columns/gaynor/120507).

Matthew 7:3: "And why behold you the mote that is in your brother's eye, but consider not the beam that is in your own eye?" American King James version of the Bible.

To nitpick is to be concerned with or find fault with insignificant details.

The upcoming presidential election is much too important for nitpicking and second guessing, and the upcoming Congressional elections are critical to reversing the damage inflicted in the Age of Obama.

The only alternative to Obama is Romney, not Santorum, or Gingrich, or anyone else.

Deal with it.

What is significant is whether Romney replaces Obama as President of the United States, not campaign detail.

Message for those who would make the perfect the enemy of the good: Get over it. Stop harping about everything from,how many public events Romney does each day to his decision to visit Israel to how many years of tax returns he produces and start looking into how Obama conned most voters in 2008.

The stakes are much too high to be looking to 2016 and putting ourselves first.

The winner of the 2012 presidential election will be either President Obama or Mitt Romney.

Romney beat all the other Republican presidential hopefuls and he did it without the endorsement of such conservatives as Bill Kristol and Laura Ingraham. They should realize that he's entitled to run his own campaign and enormously preferable to Obama.

These days Ingraham is saying that the upcoming election is an all hands of deck election.

About that, she's right.

Obama's re-election would be a catastrophe for the limits of government, the possibilities of freedom and traditional American values, and Ingraham knows it.

Unfortunately, Ingraham's ery noticeably upset that Romney is not conducting his presidential campaign the way she wants him to and publicly venting about it. In addition, she's worried that if he loses, she'll be blamed.

JFK was right: "Victory has a thousand fathers, but defeat is an orphan."

Forget about credit or blame and positioning to lose and focus on winning!

If Romney wins, there will be those who will say that he could have won bigger if only he'd heeded their advice.

If Romney loses, America loses and everyone who knows or should know that the upcoming presidential election will be to blame, Ingraham included.

Railing against Romney for not letting you micromanage his campaign is not helpful.

Election a Congress that would support Romney would be very helpful.

Exchange that there are two choices, attack Obama and back Romney.

Focus on why Obama is unfit and stop whining.

Biography - Michael J. Gaynor

Michael J. Gaynor has been practicing law in New York since 1973. A former partner at Fulton, Duncombe & Rowe and Gaynor & Bass, he is a solo practitioner admitted to practice in New York state and federal courts and an Association of the Bar of the City of New York member.

Gaynor graduated magna cum laude, with Honors in Social Science, from Hofstra University's New College, and received his J.D. degree from St. John's Law School, where he won the American Jurisprudence Award in Evidence and served as an editor of the Law Review and the St. Thomas More Institute for Legal Research. He wrote on the Pentagon Papers case for the Review and obscenity law for The Catholic Lawyer and edited the Law Review's commentary on significant developments in New York law.

The day after graduating, Gaynor joined the Fulton firm, where he focused on litigation and corporate law. In 1997 Gaynor and Emily Bass formed Gaynor & Bass and then conducted a general legal practice, emphasizing litigation, and represented corporations, individuals and a New York City labor union. Notably, Gaynor & Bass prevailed in the Second Circuit in a seminal copyright infringement case, Tasini v. New York Times, against newspaper and magazine publishers and Lexis-Nexis. The U.S. Supreme Court affirmed, 7 to 2, holding that the copyrights of freelance writers had been infringed when their work was put online without permission or compensation.

Gaynor currently contributes regularly to www.MichNews.com, www.RenewAmerica.com, www.WebCommentary.com, www.PostChronicle.com and www.therealitycheck.org and has contributed to many other websites. He has written extensively on political and religious issues, notably the Terry Schiavo case, the Duke "no rape" case, ACORN and canon law, and appeared as a guest on television and radio. He was acknowledged in Until Proven Innocent, by Stuart Taylor and KC Johnson, and Culture of Corruption, by Michelle Malkin. He appeared on "Your World With Cavuto" to promote an eBay boycott that he initiated and "The World Over With Raymond Arroyo" (EWTN) to discuss the legal implications of the Schiavo case. On October 22, 2008, Gaynor was the first to report that The New York Times had killed an Obama/ACORN expose on which a Times reporter had been working with ACORN whistleblower Anita MonCrief.
