What the media never talks about is the billions in in-kind donations from the media itself, the fawning coverage that you couldn’t buy with all the money in the world and the union money that’s never reported on, along with hundreds of thousands of boots on the ground. Gov. Romney may be winning the FEC money-raising competition, but Mr. Obama has many built-in advantages that Team Romney has to overcome. If every conservative family gave just $100 to the campaign, they could overcome all that. I’m as poor as a church mouse, but I’m guessing we’ve already sent $100 or more.
As we all know it will be all about turn out and that is driven by enthusiasm and enthusiasm can be driven by all sorts of factors including love, hate, rage. Negative emotions will incite more action than will positive ones. This is why Obama is constantly creating turmoil and strife among his base. He knows he is losing the enthusiasm battle and must create as much hatred as he can. The problem for him is the more he incites his own base to turn out using hate tactics the more he turns off the Independents and fires up the Republicans.
It is as many have said in the past and I believe. You cannot win a campaign by only bashing your opponent and that is what Obama is attempting to do because he has nothing to run on.
