This election cycle's barrage of negative campaigning has gotten a lot of attention lately. This week, Political Punch takes a slightly deeper plunge into the slime.
"All those negative ads don't matter. When you come together, you cannot be stopped," President Obama told supporters at a campaign event in Jacksonville, Florida.
And while it is true that Obama faces a battery of negative ads from independent groups funded by unknown individuals, and it's also true that Mitt Romney is a relentless negative campaigner, the president is not so innocent on this charge, either.
A recent study of a 2-week period ending in July found that about 89 percent of Obama's ads carried an anti-Romney message and 94 percent of Romney's ads an anti-Obama message; 2012 is on pace to become the most negative campaign cycle ever.
But just how far back does Obama's negative campaigning go? And how down and dirty were the ads of 2008 compared with today's? Check out this week's Political Punch to find out.
It's all he's got. He certainly can't run on his record.
The irony being that Romney cant either. His biggest achievement, Romneycare, is a hullabaloo with the republican base. Both sides will attack each other but the GOP will have to go about it in a smarter way. The american voter is a low attention span ignorant slob, if Romney comes out with a foreign policy attack, Obama counters with "OBL died under MY watch". If they say he is weak on defense, the DNC counter with "Iraq ended successfully under Obamas watch. Obama drops hellfires on more terrorist than even Bush did". Its the best political drama ever. Just enough truth to pass a casual glance and nothing outrageously false enough to base a retaliatory campaign on.
If they GOP can successfully bulldoze the DNC efforts on Defense and foreign policy, they are really kinda hurting as those are historically the Republicans strong suits. If it comes down to a domestic issues war, its gonna be a he said she said event with the GOP calling the other side panderers and the DNC calling the republicans obstructionist.
Ford Motor co? oh shiznit must be a Iranian holding. Romney invested in about 160 Funds wanna count how many are in the USA and how many are Overseas? Hint you'll come out looking bad...
And can you explain what a Blind Trust is, and how it works? or the legal responsibilities of a Fiduciary officer
