Have you seen some of those anti-Romney mud-slinging TV spots? If so, youll be glad to know that Barack Obamas attack ads are not only falling short of their goal of tearing down Romneys character, but according to one survey are actually energizing Republican enthusiasm to vote against Obama.
The survey just released by Evolving Strategies, (ES) shows Obamas mud-slinging has driven Republican enthusiasm to a stunning 42 points higher than it was in 2008. Unfortunately ES doesnt mention which baseline of enthusiasm for each candidate they used for comparison, so we can only guess which numbers to use.
In October 2008, Gallup reported 70% of Democrats and 51% of Republicans were very enthusiastic to vote. That 19 point spread gave Obama a near landslide victory with a 7% popular vote margin.
Since ES reports a 42% Republican enthusiasm edge for Romney and Obamas ads did not boost Democratic enthusiasm for the president using Gallups numbers means a stunning 93% Republican enthusiasm level.
If ESs numbers are even near accurate, (and near accurate is not an unreasonable level), than we are watching the makings of a huge wave election that could easily surpass the results of the 2010 election.
In ESs accompanying message opines that the differences between polls of registered voters and likely voters occur because of enthusiasm. This begs the question: how can any of these polls show Barack Obama even close to Mitt Romney?
With 8 points as the smallest enthusiasm edge for Romney that can be found, and a number of surveys showing 15 or 16 point margins, the use of 2008s turn out numbers of 31 Republicans 38 Democrats and 31 Independents as a

Obama: Romney's a 'Bulls-----'

President Barack Obama told Rolling Stone that Mitt Romney is a "bullsh!tter." Mike Allen reports:
FIRST LOOK Rolling Stone cover, Obama and the Road Ahead: The Rolling Stone Interview, by Douglas Brinkley:
We arrived at the Oval Office for our 45-minute interview on the morning of October 11th. As we left the Oval Office, executive editor Eric Bates told Obama that he had asked his six-year-old if there was anything she wanted him to say to the president. [S]he said, Tell him: You can do it. Obama grinned. You know, kids have good instincts, Obama offered. They look at the other guy and say, Well, thats a bullsh!tter, I can tell.
I used an exclamation point for the "i" but the article prints it as is.
CLASSY, very classy, Mr. Chicago-Thug, Community Agitator and Haw-vad grad.
Hope this goes viral as I can't imagine that the undecided and women who are sick and tired of this lying, uncouth, fascist, diktator would be thrilled with this kind of potty-mouthed attack.
I noticed on msnbc a clever way in which they have been giving free ad time to obama they poromote this news story about a new ad obama is running in 8 swing states then show the ad in its entirity several times during the “story” it would be an effective way to buy ad time in 8 states and have it air in all 50 states too bad msnbc has such a tiny audience
