Team Obama’s Reelect Strategy Revolves Around An Unrelenting Negative Campaign

“Though The Obamans Certainly Hit John McCain Hard Four Years Ago-Running More Negative Ads Than Any Campaign In History-What They Intend To Do To Romney Is More Savage.” (John Heilemann, “Hope: The Sequel,” New York Magazine, 5/27/12)

  • Obama Relies On “Going Negative,” Which Is “Very Different From The Formula” He Used In 2008. “Obama and his advisers fell back on the timeless method that has essentially become the default option for presidential reelection campaigns, despite his promises to change the process. They prefer to talk euphemistically about ‘drawing the contrast,’ but everyone else calls it going negative. This was something very different from the formula that elected the country’s first African-American president, but it would have to do.” (Glenn Thrush, Obama’s Last Stand, 2012)

Team Obama Spends Sunday On Defense

Fox’s Chris Wallace: “That is the argument that the Obama campaign makes – that the $716 billion is all in cuts to providers and insurance companies and it will have no effect on benefits or services to the beneficiaries. Let me ask my question. Medicare’s own actuary, own actuary of Medicare – not of the Romney campaign – says that is impossible. That you can’t have the same services for $716 billion less. And let’s put up some of what the Medicare actuary says. They say that 15 percent of Medicare providers will be unprofitable by 2019. 25 percent of Medicare providers will be unprofitable by 2030.

The Context Is Clear: Government Didn’t Build Our Businesses

“President Obama could not have been more clear when he told small business owners that they shouldn’t take credit for building their businesses. Now editorial boards around the country have weighed in, and they couldn’t be more clear, either – President Obama’s comments ‘demeaned’ and insulted hard-working Americans.”


From the RNC:

WASHINGTON – The Republican National Committee releases new web ad “The Busiest President” highlighting the hardest working man in Washington. President Obama’s own jobs council has not met in over 6 months and the White House says it’s because he had too much on his plate. As jobs continue to be the number one issue for voters, what was on Obama’s plate that was more important than the 23 million Americans struggling under our economy? Ten golf outings and 106 campaign fundraisers. (more…)
