Team Obama Admits It’s Campaign Will Be Mostly Negative

But, then, what else does Obama have to run on? A failed economic stimulus plan that wasted a billion dollars? A highly unpopular healthcare bill? The Lilly Ledbetter Act, which was so wonderful that the Democrats tried to pass legislation that did the same thing again this year? Drone strikes that make his base insane(r)? Raising taxes? What?

(ABC News) Both candidates say this election is about the economy. But the Obama campaign has done its best to make everything about Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney’s Swiss bank accounts. His vast wealth. His vacations.

Ann Romney said the Obama campaign is trying to “kill” her husband.

Here’s how President Obama put it during a campaign speech on Friday in Ohio, the same day a government jobs report showed little growth and an unchanged unemployment rate:

“Mr. Romney’s experience — because he always says, ‘I’ve got a lot of business experience; I know how to create jobs,’ — well, look, his company that he started were called the pioneers of business outsourcing. The pioneers of outsourcing. So that’s his experience.”

Obama’s campaign speech was a model for what has become his strategy: talk about the economy only when necessary, and spend as much time as possible chipping away at Romney’s secretive and corporate background.

All his peeps have taken the same track, going after Romney on a personal level, despite those attacks having been proven completely false. Obama has to attempt to shift the message, because his time in office has been one where he has presided over some of the worst economic conditions in the United States ever. And it’s not getting better. Obama has done such a wonderful job that many Democrats have publicly announced that they won’t be attending the DNC in September.

As for the attacks on Romney, does Team Obama have any evidence? If they did, they’d trot it out.

    Biden: “Where’s Romney’s tax returns?”

    ummm.. didn’t he already come out with them?

    Obama and Axelrod: “Where’s his records on all his personal businesses and private personal secrets so we can spill them and make fun of him with?”

    If you can’t find them, then too bad. If you aren’t going to show yours, don’t expect others to show theirs.

    Obama: “Romney was solely responsible for outsourcing jobs during the time he wasn’t working for the company he helped create. He is uber evil and will outsource America to China, Russia, Cuba and turn our backs on Canada, Mexico, and Israel.”
    …..
    “well.. more than I did.”

    I sure miss the days when we had news reporters.

  3. It’s a shame that in today’s political atmosphere that Romney can’t simply say “none of your damned business.” The media would kill him. Of course, the fact that Obama releases none of his records is A-OK with the media

    I think Romney should do exactly that. He should come out the next time he is asked and state: “I will release my records once Obama releases his transcripts and who paid for his education. I will release my records when Obama releases his IRS statements for when he was working for Acorn. I will release my documents when Obama releases the F&F documents that are public documents.”
