    Not the Tea Party is "far right", but "thanks" Liberalism America is getting too much left, GOP has good chances with Palin and Cain.

That is normally how it was done in the past. I'm trying to think of a prominent example of such dastardly horrible smear campaigns that helped win a president re-election...oh yeah here is one: Swift Vets and POWs for Truth - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    ah, 2004. the election in which a group allied with Republicans claimed that John Kerry had left vietnam early (he had) under inauspicious circumstances (perhaps debatable)..... and in which a group allied with Democrats claimed that George Bush had helped to mass-murder thousands of innocent American citizens.

    yup, those evil republicans sure did smear, didn't they.

    Was that part of the presidential campaign, or part of the fight over a bill that was at the time being considered? Why did you not include actual quotes and a link?

    i'm not whining - i'm thinking strategically and predicting. The man doesn't want to spend it talking up himself, and he doesn't need to spend it in a primary. the main area of focus for political campaigns that is left is "define the opposition".
    Yes you are whining. He is not even actively campaigning yet, and you are accusing him of campaigning negatively.

    what? my reply to you was both honest and perfectly polite.
    Among other things, your focus on Obama. Simple questions: Has Obama spoke positively this week on achievements(hint: he has)? Have republican presidential candidates spoke negatively about Obama(hint: they have)? So why are you focusing on Obama, who is not even campaigning yet? Why no mention of republicans going negative?

    You don't want to discuss the campaign neutrally, which is what I attempted to do, but instead you want to spread propaganda about how bad a person Obama is(well, will be) and smear Obama for what he might, maybe, possibly will do. And you don't see the irony in that?

    Most, if not all campaigns go negative, in one way or another.
    Don't know if this one will be the worst though.

    Holy **** you completely and totally misrepresented what Swiftboats for truth did, and attempted to put it on the same level as truthers. That is insane. Not only did Swiftboats for truth claim lots of things you failed to mention(for example that he lied about his service), they ran TV spots making those claims. How many truther TV spots where run against Bush?

    Absolutely, and both sides will go negative.

    I'll wait for the GOP to pick their guy, then go after both for idiocy.

    I will have a little fun poking at the candidates in the primary. I won't get serious until the general.

    My early, uninformed prediction.

    It's gonna be between Romney and Pawlenty.
    Both are the safe candidates, but I personally find them both flaccid and uninspiring.
