In May, “The Defeat of Barack Hussein Obama,” a GOP Super-Pac proposal that was pitched to Republican billionaire Joe Ricketts, was leaked to the New York Times. The 57-page proposal looked to dismantle President Obama’s re-election plans by inciting the racist foundation of this country with a re-airing of the controversial Rev. Jeremiah Wright‘s remarks during Obama’s 2008 election. With the premature exposure, though, top-Republicans, such as Mitt Romney and Ricketts, backpedaled from the polarizing document as a firestorm of criticism descended. Now, the main strategist responsible for the document, Fred Davis (pictured), is said to “regret” writing the document and insists — in spite of the racist and incendiary language — that he isn’t a racist.
Cry me a river in 3, 2, and 1.
In his proposal, which called President Obama a “metrosexual, black Abe Lincoln,” Davis criticized then-GOP Presidential nominee John McCain for squandering a ripe opportunity with the potentially divisive Rev. Wright scandal, “[McCain] is a crusty old politician who often seemed confused” and failed to exploit the target-rich opportunity presented by the venomous Wright.”
According to the New York Times, the proposal continued:
Our plan is to do exactly what John McCain would not let us do: Show the world how Barack Obama’s opinions of America and the world were formed, the proposal says. And why the influence of that misguided mentor and our president’s formative years among left-wing intellectuals has brought our country to its knees.
Once the malicious proposal became public, though, Davis and his Republican peers were exposed as the desperate bigots that they are.
Recently, Davis allowed himself to be interviewed by the L.A. Times, where he reportedly says that his life after the May expose has become “miserable.” Why? Because Davis has been inundated with thousands of e-mails and death threats for the underhanded way he looked to secure Romney the title of commander-in-chief.
The L.A. Times reports:
Davis, who works in Hollywood, got word of the slap-down indirectly, through the many thousands of emails he received in the days that followed; he has not consumed a word of news coverage since the initial report, finding it too painful.
