A recent poll found that, between Romney and Obama, more Americans believe Obama is the one running the more negative campaign. This morning, Senior Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod blamed this perception on Romney and GOP Super PACs. Axelrod accused the GOP of running ads that helped convince people that President Obama is running a more negative campaign than Mitt Romney.
He maintained on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Tuesday that that’s why a recent NBC/WSJ poll showed that Americans almost by a 2-to-1 margin think the Obama campaign is more negative. “Partly Joe [Scarborough], that’s because the Romney campaign and their friends in the super PAC world have just spent tens and tens of millions of dollars specifically on spots accusing Obama of running a negative campaign,” Axelrod said. “So I’m not surprised to see those numbers.”
What universe is Axelrod living in? I seem to remember just two weeks ago Debbie Wasserman Schultz in response to Republican complaints against the Bain attacks saying: ”tell them to stop whining and put their big boy and big girl pants on”. Sounds like good advice David.
Has anyone yet seen a single positive commercial that Obama has run? It’s understandable because he has no record to speak of other than the claim of killing Osama Bin Laden. That has been exploited to a degree where classified information about the mission has intentionally been leaked to the press to make the President look like a tough guy.
Now with his posture of “you didn’t build that on your own” the President has to share the glory with the entire infrastructure behind the raid including (god forbid) the previous administration.
But, put Axelrod on MSNBC, one of the kennels for Obama’s lap dogs, and he can say anything he wants without being challenged. Chris Matthews will swoon and feel another tingle running up his leg, Rachel Maddow will say, “WOOF WOOF” and Ed Schultz will call Laura Ingraham a slut and…. you get the rest.
One of the most disingenuous Obama commercials has to be the “America the Beautiful” spot. It annoys everyone, Republicans, Independents and Democrats alike. Filled with intentionally false information, it portrays Romney as a jobs outsourcer with Swiss bank accounts.
We can leave the outsourcing for another discussion, but do you think David Axelrod may know some prominent democrats who have offshore investments? I wonder where George Soros keeps his money, or Valerie Jarrett or even Timothy Geithner (Mr. clueless on LIBOR manipulations) when he actually pays taxes.
The negativity will only increase as Obama gets more desperate and Americans begin to see him for what he is: completely unqualified to be President of the United States. The most complex and demanding CEO position in the world occupied by a community organizer who promised hope and change and has no idea what to do beyond that. Great gig if you can get it!
Let’s not forget:
With 102 days left until Barack The Pretender gets voted out of office
US National Debt stands at: $15.9 trillion
Unemployment stands at: 15.2 million people
And that’s the way it is here: a little left of right
