Obamakampanjen jobbar hårt med att framställa Mitt Romney som hjärtlös och instabil och samtidigt etablera hjärtlöshet och empati som valets underliggande inramning. I den här filmen som släpptes idag aktiverar de empati vs hjärtlöshet i nästan varje mening:

  • “like a vampire, he came in and sucked the life out of us
  • “It was like watching an old friend bleed to death
  • “it breaks my heart
  • “elimination of the pension plan and termination of employee and retiree life insurance and health insurance”
  • “yet they didn’t have the money to take care of the people that made the money for them”
  • how could you care, how could you care for the average working person if you feel that way”
