Republicans are seeking to portray President Obama as the divider-in-chief, arguing the presidential candidate who trumpeted hope and change four years ago is now running an increasingly negative campaign.

Their chief argument is that Obama's attacks on the wealthy are meant to incite class warfare and a heightened us-versus-them mentality never seen before in present day politics.

Obama is getting back what he dishes out, and he’s getting it from a fellow liberal. It really is a dog eat dog world.

“Race relations” certainly appear to be much worse than they ever have been in my memory.

But I believe that that is just appearances.
In the “Age of Obama”, the racists who have had racism generationally engrained into their culture are just being more “expressive”.

Not sure if that`ll have any effect. The American electorate doesn`t give a sh*t about divided vs. united. The GOP needs to somehow convince the sheeple that they won`t get no mo` “Obama munny” if he gets re-elected.

RE :”War on business/entrepreneurs

You got the wrong list.

My list was the list of groups that Obama/Dems are playing to get those in them to vote NOT-Republican, so to vote for him by default.

Republicans are not using the 'War on...' terminology.

Thanks.. and the same applies to the $16T debt. American voters aren't .. shall we say.. the most educated bunch. They have to be spoon-fed the information to gain an understanding WHY debt is bad. They don't have any clue about impending inflation, interest rates, resource scarcities, etc. They have no frame of reference to those conditions, therefore they can't mentally grasp the peril.

They should make a list of all the promises obastardo made as well as a list of the documents he refuses to produce.

Romney says Obama is a well meaning guy who gave it a try but things just didnt work out.

You disagree?
