So... Team Obama has tried pity, our work is not finished, Bush 43 and the BS below as 2012 tactics so far.
Being a little thin on having anything substantive to show, they're searching for their Houdini Moment(s), like Hope and Change and Yes We Can. Problem is there is a record this time around that makes such statements look idiotic.
Lies from the Obama camp must be expected because Obama has only his dick in hand to run with in 2012. Obama cannot run on issues, economics, unemployment, foreign policy, and certainly not ObamaKare... as the 2010 election was clear people want it repealed.
Team Honest Obama's handwerk.At (the) Republican debate, the seven candidates talked about unemployment, taxes, regulations, former Gov. Tim Pawlenty’s talk of a goal of 5% GDP growth, the individual mandate in the health care bill, the Independent Medicare Advisory Board, welfare reform, the Tea Party, currency policy, the National Labor Relations Board, Boeing, TARP, the auto bailout, Rep. Paul Ryan’s Medicare proposal, former Gov. Mitt Romney’s health care program in Massachusetts, raising the debt ceiling, raising the retirement age for Social Security, the role of religion in public life, the 10th amendment, Libya, Afghanistan, and so on.
But President Obama’s 2012 campaign is sending out a DNC video suggesting the candidates spoke only about sharia law, an anti-gay-marriage amendment, repealing health care, Sarah Palin, and the space program.
But the video, which Messina calls a “highlight reel” and the DNC titled “What in the world are they talking about?” selectively uses clips from the 2-hour forum suggesting that the candidates were focused on idiotic issues, or battles from the past, when all of the topics the video hammers the Republicans for talking about were ones they were asked about at the forum.
Not much in the ideas Dept for Obama to talk about is there? Perhaps shovel ready jobs.
