Obama's campaign is just about attacking Romney who he claims will turn the clock back 50 years for immigrants, women and gays.
Obamas focus is not on his own record but on tearing Romney down personally in exactly the way he decried four years ago.
He seems to believe that the load road is his only route back to the White House in 2012. It is the kind of strategy that Candidate Obama in 2008 would have viewed as beneath contempt.

The word is a cute enough campaign term, though perhaps not quite something you would expect from a President of the United States who has been hailed for the world historical significance and beauty of his rhetoric.
Certainly, Romney is rightly vulnerable on the issue of shifting policy positions. But Romnesia , as Obama aides have made clear, is about saying that Romney cannot be trusted. Its about calling the former Massachusetts governor a liar.
Obama has signally failed to woo Republicans in Washington and there is precious little evidence he has even tried. Today, we learned that when asked by a Rolling Stone editor whether he had a message for the editors six-year-old daughter took the opportunity to describe Romney as a bulls***tter.
Almost all politicians though not Romney swear in private. But for a President of the United States to describe his opponent publicly in such a way was beneath the dignity of his office.
No, that's wrong. Obama today is the same Obama that campaigned in 2008. The difference is, he never needed the negative campaign meme with McCain, because McCain ran a poor campaign, plus so many dunderhead Americans were in love with the idea of the first Black president, and didn't look under the cover.
I am partial to having America administer a “Barry-um Enema” on
November 6 to get rid of four years of his sh*t!
Oh, I totally agree. The article was reporting the Obama BS that was spewed 4 yrs ago and the 180 degree turn around he has made now that he’s using the same tactics he pretended to be so against back then.
Article says the Obama of ‘08 would’ve been against doing what he is right now.
Actually, Obama never meant what he said back then. It was just a bunch of rhetoric on a teleprompter meant to fool the public that he was above politics and would be a great force for good if elected.
Therefore, the REAL Obama was never against doing this. It was merely the FAKE Obama that pretended to be...
Monday - he told the crowd that a vote for Romney would plunge Americans back to the early 1960s.
You can choose to turn the clock back 50 years for women and immigrants and gays, he said.
PLEASE turn back the clock fifty years...it will give us a chance to get rid of the damn COMMUNISTS that have destroyed our beloved country! It will give our children and their children a fair chance in life.
Just as a reminder fifty years ago:
Cost of a gallon of Gas 25 cents
Can of Beef Ravioli 30 cents
Loaf of Bread 20 cents
Average Cost of a new car $2,600.00
Yearly Inflation Rate 1.46%
Average Monthly Rent $98.00
Average Cost of new house $12,700.00
“Therefore, the REAL Obama was never against doing this. It was merely the FAKE Obama that pretended to be..”
Article is spot on
Obama can’t run on his record
And that fact would make a great AD
