Obama doesn't have to get down and dirty but he chooses to than he says it's not my fault it's the super pacs fault, of course obama called his donors and told them to give lots of money to the super PAC but he doesn't knnow anything about these ads. I would like to see him run on his record He should be man enough to say he doesn't agree with all the lies that are being told.
I have conducted several campaigns for public referenda. During campaigns renegades for either side tend to pop up. They often believe that either the opponent or your side are not being mean enough or orthodox enough or addressing the right issues. My experience is that these groups are beyond any control by the "official" campaign organizations because of that mind set.
if they are beyond his control (seems everything is ) he can still make a statement saying he doesnt agree with what these ads or what Harry Reid said.
As for the 'Romney causes cancer', a statement might be helpful. But, who is going to believe that line in the first place?
The thing is... this ad and the other Obama ads are effective. Most folks who see them believe them; they don't make an effort to find out if they are factual or not. I mean... a president wouldn't lie or distort, would he? He wouldn't have people on his team who lie and distort, would he?
I am in the crowd that says...
Romney will release a year of tax returns if Obama will release his school records from Columbia that have been sealed.
Romey will release another year of tax returns if Obama will release his records from Harvard.
I am still wondering how a poor high school kid with poor grades got into Occidental and then got into Columbia and then got into Harvard.
I agree with you but thats what I mean why does anyone have to stoop this low especially someone who is supposed to be our leader. He should say this has gone far enough and run an honest campaign both sides should do this.
This ad has been proven to be a lie . Obamas deputy campign manager caught in a lie and it was put out by a former Obama campaign manager Obama needs to at least talk about it and say he is not responsible. He would score big points Im sure
Same thing could happen to Romney. Reid's statement is now 2 weeks old. The press won't let it die. The perception will be inevitably that Romney is hiding something. He has been promising to release two years of returns. He should make good on that as a starter. Ten years of records where he paid taxes ought to knock ol' Harry back in his hole for good.
