obviously, the solution is more tax cuts for the rich.

Right, there have been no demonstrably false attack ads from the romney campaign all summer.

Jackson Herring: Right, there have been no demonstrably false attack ads from the romney campaign all summer.


well of course not. the Romney campaign has been nothing but sweetness and light! they've even put out all the required information on tax returns and complied with the letter of the law at every turn. it's those mean, nasty Obama people that keep making up lies. Romney never lies! retroactively speaking, of course.

Mitt Romney has never once released an attack ad? All of his advertisements are issue-based pieces that detail Romney's plans if elected?
 
2012-08-16 01:35:03 PM
Keep crying, you farking babies.
 
2012-08-16 01:36:01 PM
Romney has tried to make Obama's strengths look like weaknesses and his own weaknesses look like strengths......this has failed. The end result is he comes across as either someone who is the epitomy of an empty suit lying politician in it only for his own personal interests or someone who is so very far out of touch with people and the actual issues that he isn't qualified to order the pizza for a 13 year old's birthday party.

So how many of these negative ads from both sides have been coming from SuperPACs and how many have been coming from the campaigns directly? Seems that would be a detail that both sides would try to hide behind.

/Thanks again, CU!

The negative campaign ads are one thing, but Romney's ability to flat out lie and get away with it is completely different.

If we keep talking about the economy, we're going to lose.

Blame Blame Blame.. Vacation, Vacation, Vacation... Spend, Spend, Spend.

Thats the Obama presidency!

Is that a quote from the Obama campaign? Romney is hammering away at Obama on the economy. Are you even following the campaign?

"Epitome". Literacy may lend a veneer of credibility to your posts.

Last night for the first time here in CA I saw an Americans For Prosperity anti-Obama ad.

It was several variations of "real people, not actors" saying, "Well, yeah, Obama got handed a shiat sandwich, but I still think he could have done better."

And it had absolutely no connection to the Romney campaign. CSB.

I know right, worst president ever!!

Why cant Romney lead in any aggregate polling???

Any complaints from the Right, about the behavior of anyone else, are automatically Null and Void. The Right is so morally bankrupt that they will never be taken seriously again, on any subject, under any circumstances, for the rest of time.

Negative ads are more effective than positive ads. This says little about the candidates, but speaks volumes about us.
 
2012-08-16 01:43:28 PM
Romney starts to play some offense

STARTS?!

Further, this notion that attack ads are offense is silly. In sports, the offense tries to score points for your own team. Attack ads are trying to reduce the number of points for the other team.

Lets hope this ad gets played for every one that Rove plays.

"you didn't build that"

"Obama is gutting medicare ,I'll make it better"

"Obama is foreign ,he doesn't understand our Anglo-Saxon values, he needs to take his lies and hate back to Chicago"

"Obama is divisive and mean"

It's from the very first ad of Mitt Romney's campaign, and it takes a line from a 2008 Obama speech:
"Even as we face the most serious economic crisis of our time, even as you are worried about keeping your jobs or paying your bills or staying in your homes, my opponent's campaign announced earlier this month that they want to 'turn the page' on the discussion about our economy so they can spend the final weeks of this election attacking me instead. Sen. McCain's campaign actually said, and I quote, 'If we keep talking about the economy, we're going to lose.'"

Romney's been lying about Obama since the day he started his campaign.

Don't pay attention to all that qualified analysis saying it's a close election statistically in favor of Obama, where only a few swing states will actually matter, it's a horse race where every single county in every state is up for grabs!!!!
 
2012-08-16 01:49:29 PM
Romney and his pacs put out over $100 million in ads this summer ffs.

Bloody William: Keep crying, you farking babies.



Farking THIS

Keep crying conservatives, keep bawling like the emotional 4 year olds you actually are. Stomp your little feet that nobody takes your crazy narrative seriously, threaten to hold your collective breaths and turn blue until reality matches the bizzaro universe you feverishly think you live in.

Pussies
Cowards
Sand infested vaginas, the whole farking lot of you.
 
2012-08-16 01:50:57 PM
A) Romney's also been running attack ads for weeks now.

B) Romney just recently started whining about negative campaigning.

...but, no, it's obviously the liberal mainstream lamestream MSM liberal media just now deciding to talk about the negative campaign season, completely unprompted by things both campaigns have been saying. Mitt Romney has been running a completely high brow campaign full of thoughtful and detailed policy, who could possibly accuse him of running a campaign whose only real, unchanging idea is that Obama sucks?

Romney starts to play some offense.

Starts?? Starts???

The Republicans have been mercilessly attacking Obama since the day he took office.

Poor poor wittle Mittens. He can dish it out, but he can't take it.

Republicans: typical bullies. Complete and utter pussies just beneath the top layer of skin.

Yeah, but in Romney's defense, he has not been effective at it.

Biden suggested he meant to reference shackles, not chains.

Right on schedule too.

By the time October poll numbers start coming in, the narrative will change from horse race to "will it be a blowout for Romney or Obama?"

Always does it seems.

Let Romney complain, it just makes him seem weak.

Romney just needs to stop chaining up blacks and giving women cancer.
 
2012-08-16 02:02:21 PM
So whining in public is now the official campaign strategy? Good luck with that.

If they could, with no retaliation and no fear of reprisal, the GOP would gladly put Blacks back into slavery.

And we all know it.

Sure they would. So them rich republicans could pick more cotton. Cotton is the new gold.

Not cotton, no.

NateGrey: Mr. Gingrich blamed his lousy poll numbers partially on Mr. Romney's bulging campaign war chest, telling "Fox News Sunday" that the former Massachusetts governor's money allows him to have "a policy of carpet-bombing his opponent."

"He doesn't try to build up Mitt Romney. He just tries to tear down whoever he's running against, and it has an effect," Mr. Gingrich said.

Good times.


Hah; "sauce for the goose" and all that jazz.
 
2012-08-16 02:22:27 PM
What President Obama or a supportive Super PAC should do is make comercials that review every claim made against President Obama that is a lie; and then the actual truth with an easily searchable credible source if anyone needs to verify. Make sure the person who said the falsehood is given credit of course. Either Romney's side will get tired of getting called out and stop, or they will provide constant ammunition to Obama's side and look shady to the swing voters.

Mitten's campaign doesn't need to release attack ads. Hes got thousands of right-wing fringe groups doing it for him.

After a summer full of 100M worth of Obama negative ads, Romney starts to play some offense.

i0.kym-cdn.com

Where was the negative content? Was it when he sat down and talked right into the camera and spoke positively about the nation's future? Or maybe the time the commercial listed headlines reporting Romney's tax dodging shenanigans? I must have missed it. I mean, I've seen Romney whining about how Obama's been such a meanie butthead to him and he's very very displeased that he's not getting his way, but I haven't seen negative Obama ads.

I'm very confused.

YELLOL: Romney just needs to stop chaining up blacks and giving women cancer.


that's just his hobby. his job is to steal money from the middle class and give it to himself and his fellow rich people.

Why are you elitist, snobby, out-of-touch, dope-smoking, queer, welfare queen supporting, commie-fascist liberals SO NEGATIVE?!?!
