Skip to comments.Obama warns of fall Romney 'smear' machine
Posted on 02/01/2012 10:50:58 AM PST by Nachum
The Obama-Biden reelection campaign, which just announced it banked $224 million in 2011, is stepping up fundraising as it steels for an expected fall "smear" machine from GOP front-runner Mitt Romney. In an email to supporters this morning, Obama campaign manager Jim Messina warned that the Republicans will have a fat bank account to tap for negative ads, something both Romney and Newt Gingrich did in Florida. "They're going to try to spend and smear their way to the White House," Messina said about Republican groups and candidates.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Oh, let’s see now, with all the media organs that have renamed themselves...
I guess all that free advertising and propaganda help doesn’t have to be factored in, right, Kenyan?
Romney smear Machine against Obama Smear Machine is like a ten year old light weight kid fighting the world boxing champ. It is not going to be a context what so ever. Obama the Lord and Master of class warfare is going to attach the chain of Bain Capital around Romney neck and drag him like an ancient time gladiator dragged his defeated opponent in the arena. Romney utter defeat against Obama would be remembered in the annals of Presidential elections forever.
Yes, that does appear to be Romney’s method when his opposition stands to his right. Willard hates conservatives. But with progressives or ideological fellow travelers like Obama he’s much more neutral.
I pray that whoever the nominee is runs the campaign the way it should have been run the FIRST time.....EXPOSE THIS RACIST, ANTI-AMERICAN ANTI-SEMITE!
This election cycle is going to be unbearable me thinks!
May have to just stop coffee all together!!!!
I totally agree. Mittens is now and always was and always will be a liberal dummycrat. He'd be perfect on the dummycrat ticket. I wish he'd go away somewhere and leave what's left of the Repub Party alone.
Good stuff Sarge. Reminds of CBS (Clinton Broadcasting Company), NBC (Nobody but Clinton), and ABC (All Bill Clinton). The MSM is in the tank for Obama.
If Mittens is the GOP nominee - we have an alternative in Randall Terry as the DEM candidate.
That would be the mother of all crossovers;)
That's going to come back to bite her.
We should have 5.00 a gallon gas by October with Arab spring in full summer bloom, and 9 to 11 percent unemployment.
Let's see if Mr. Soebarkah get reelected on that record.
From what I’ve seen of Romney in Fl, if he ran like that in a general election, the mud pile from both will be unlike any seen in history.
I wouldn’t be shocked if they end up blowing 2 billion between them and Super PACS.
The GOP-E will tell Romney not to launch smear attacks against Obama for fear that it will alienate “the mushy middle”. Romney, not wanting to piss off the GOP-E, will oblige.
Just get a good supply of popcorn :)
barry is pretending to be “afraid” of mittens. He knows damn well the base will NOT support mittens.
And of course, ZerO, you'd never DREAM of being the one to take the first shot. :::snort:::
.....EXPOSE THIS RACIST, ANTI-AMERICAN ANTI-SEMITE!
If Williard is the GOP nominee Obama will do just that...
Obama’s people are trying to innoculate his campaign from all of his gaff’s, lies, broken promises, corrupt practices and connections and failed programs being paraded before the voters. They should be worried-it’s a target rich environment. It will also reveal what the MSM HASN’T been reporting.
The Romney machine needs to point out the facts:
The following describes the Obama Economic Record:
Inauguration day: 12 million
Today: 13.1 million
Change: +1.1 million
Inauguration day: 7.8%
Inauguration day: $1.85
Inauguration day: $10.6 trillion
Today: $15.2 trillion
Debt per person:
Inauguration day: $34,731
Inauguration day: 7.8
Inauguration day: $6,591
Worker health insurance costs:
Inauguration day: $3,354
Food stamp recipients:
Inauguration day: 32 million
Today: 46 million
American in poverty:
Inauguration day: 39.8 million
Today: 46.2 million
Change: +6.4 million
Inauguration day: $169,700
US Global Competitiveness:
Inauguration day: 1st
Change: - 4 places
Please add the number of rounds of golf Obama played, the vacations and costs this family spent on the taxpayer’s dime while reflecting upon the above listed statistics. Romney can avoid smearing Obama by just reciting the facts. Be prepared for a cataclysmic avalanche of attacks from Obama.
Stop coffee....add alchohol
Obama answer: Bain Capital, Bain Capital, and Bain Capital and he has 1 billion dollars in his campaign and another 10 billion dollars from the media to repeat the same thing again and again and again. There is no way under the sun that a majority of voters are going to voters for investment banker who founded a company Bain Capital who main function is to sell and buy businesses and in the process thousands have lost their jobs. Only delusional people would think otherwise.
You have the absolutely wrong person in Romney to point out these facts. It would not work against Obama if Romney is the man pointing them out.
By the time Oromney gets around to running against Obama, he will have trashed his chances with conservatives. He won’t smear Obama like he has Newt, because Obama isn’t conservative.
Sounds like a good reason to subscribe to DVR service if one hasn't already.
I don’t think Obama fears Mittens at all.
