Remember Obama’s calls for civility and a new tone in political discourse?
Barack Obama’s aides and advisers are preparing to center the president’s reelection campaign on a ferocious personal assault on Mitt Romney’s character and business background, a strategy grounded in the early-stage expectation that the former Massachusetts governor is the likely GOP nominee.
The dramatic and unabashedly negative turn is the product of political reality. Obama remains personally popular, but pluralities in recent polling disapprove of his handling of his job, and Americans fear the country is on the wrong track. His aides are increasingly resigned to running for reelection in a glum nation. And so the candidate who ran on “hope” in 2008 has little choice four years later but to run a slashing, personal campaign aimed at disqualifying his likeliest opponent.
Me neither. The man is a liar and hypocrite. Because there exists no difference between the MSM and the press office of the DNC, Obastard will likely get away with it. The sheeple are too unaware and uninformed to know anymore that they hear on GMA or MSDNC.
Apparently even some informed liberals are noticing. Here is Jane Hamsher from FireDogLake, which is not exactly the most conservative blog site around
In 2008 the Obama campaign was (rightly) accusing opponents of dog whistle and outsourced race-based attacks. To preach religious tolerance as Obama does, and then engage in this kind of appeal to religious bigotry, is both hypocritical and pernicious, not to mention self-defeating.
But when the fall of 2012 comes around, don’t expect the liberals to reject Obumbler on principle. Eventually Alinskyism will win out.
