Obama Campaign’s $100 Million Panic
July 16, 2012

None Of Obama's Punches...Are Sticking.

The Obama campaign has spent over $100 million building a nationally-televised BOXING MATCH, to bury Mitt Romney with HIT ADS.  The mission? To fend off the rising tide for Governor Romney.  None of it has worked.  The latest Gallup Polls show Obama and Romney in a dead heat at 46% to 46%.

The administration knew there would be no place to hide on the subject of the nation’s economy, and no fall-back positions for the President.  The only hope?  Bloody the opponent.  But as Jennifer Rubin of the Washington Postreports, what do you do, when it’s only July, and you’ve already called Mitt

Calling Romney a "felon" and a "criminal"...not gaining traction.

Romney…a criminal?

“Why has the Obama team been publicly wailing about losing out to Mitt Romney in the money race? Why would the president accuse his opponent of not merely being wrong or unqualified but criminal? After all, the polls are tied, so why so much worry in


Like a mystery novel, the answer is in front of our noses: The candidates are still tied in the polls. Let’s go step by step with the most logical explanation of the Obama campaign’s conduct.

The Obama team knew months ago that the economy would not sufficiently improve before Election Day to justify his reelection. Its polling showed simply blaming President George W. Bush wouldn’t be sufficient. The president and his political hacks concluded that it was too late and too risky to adopt a whole new second-term agenda. (It would risk offending either the base or centrists and reveal his first-term agenda to have been entirely inadequate.) So what to do?

Calculating...strongest attacks?

Extend the Republican primary by running ads hitting Romney and encouraging Democrats to vote against Romney in Michigan and elsewhere. Then, before Romney could fully get his bearings, unload a barrage of negative attacks, scare mongering and thinly disguised oppo attacks through the mainstream media, taking advantage of many political reporters’ relative ignorance about the private equity field and their inclination to accept whole-hog President Obama’s version of “facts.”

Romney might need an asbestos suit before November 6th

The extent of that effort is only now becoming clear. The Associated Press reports: “President Barack Obama’s campaign has spent nearly $100 million on television commercials in selected battleground states so far, unleashing a sustained early barrage designed to create lasting, negative impressions of Republican Mitt Romney before he and his allies ramp up for the fall.” Think of it like the Confederacy’s artillery barrage on the third day of Gettysburg before Pickett’s charge — you have to in essence disable the other side before the charge begins or its curtains.

But there is so MUCH MORE.  Read on here at:
