Obama’s Campaign Strategy Exposed

Unless things change and Obama can run on accomplishments, he will have to kill Romney,” said a prominent Democratic strategist aligned with the White House. This is shaping up to be Obama’s re-election campaign strategy. With few accomplishments, a disastrous economy, and no solutions, Obama has nothing to run on and will have to resort to demonizing the opposition.

This, of course, has been a tactic all along. George Bush, Sarah Palin, the Tea Party, and almost anyone else who has dared question the ideologically driven positions of the left have been personally attacked and vilified rather than debated. It has come from not-so-funny comedians, the left-leaning media, administration officials, and even the White House.

Character assassination has become commonplace, but many are finding it disgusting. However, the sad truth is that it still has a chance of being successful. Too many voters are clueless about the problems we are facing and the only information many of them get comes from network news shows which unabashedly back Obama. Repeated false accusations and innuendos against Republicans and the Tea Party can find fertile ground in those who pull their heads from the sand only for a biased network news show.

Three years into his presidency, Obama continues to blame Bush and his empty rhetoric is geared to convincing voters that if it weren’t for the Republicans, everything would be peachy-keen. Those who have been paying attention know better, but that may not be enough. People want to believe the president, and Obama is counting on using that to his advantage.

We have seen mud-slinging in all political campaigns but since it is the only thing Obama has, we will witness a campaign like no other. He cannot run on accomplishments and he cannot resurrect the broken promise of “hope and change”, so there is little doubt what his strategy will be. He will come out slinging, and a new benchmark for muddy politics will be established.
