"[I]f you don't have any fresh ideas, then you use stale tactics to scare the voters. If you don't have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from."Flash forward to 2012 and look at the Obama Campaign. He is poking large sticks at race relations with his "Blacks for Obama" campaign. He is stirring the gender equality pot with his manufactured "war on women." He is encouraging class warfare with calculated attacks on job creators and business owners, all with a little help from the union subsidized and Democrat-Party sanctioned "occupiers."
Stale tactics, scare voters, check.
Then he points at Romney's wife and her $900 blouse (which she paid for, mind you) to make it look like Romney is part of the "evil rich" camp. Pay no attention to Michelle's $2500 sneakers (which YOU paid for) and her last $500k vacay. He tells you that Romney will take away your jobs (while refusing to sign on the dotted line for the job-creating Keystone Pipeline). He tells you that Romney will make you pay back your student loans and mortgages. (Okay, that much is true, but...derp...you're SUPPOSED to pay those things back.)
Paint opponent as someone you should run from, check.
Which suggests, by Obama's own logic, that he has neither fresh ideas nor a record to run on. The unemployment rate and the still stagnant economy only serve to back up that statement.
