We’re on overload.
Mitt Romney not only appears to have the edge in spending on TV advertising, he has it. The Barack Obama group now says it will add a truckload of new ads…starting now.
And now we’re told Obama was able to raise even more bucks than Mitt this past month.
The big difference in the Obama ads being Bill Clinton is on board.
Who has more charisma than this guy? Nobody.
Bill acts like he’s talking to a group of guys at a bar. “Hey, we gotta stay with Obama’s plan,” he says. And he says it so matter-of-factly it makes us forget all those mean speeches about Obama that came out of his mouth just four years back when Hillary Clinton ran against Obama for the Presidency.
Team Clinton had nothing good to say about Barack then. Now, he’s their good buddy.
Politics and sports make for strange bedfellows.
The battle lines for the two sides are beginning to take shape for the final run.
Mitt and Paul Ryan say that Obama didn’t live up to his promises. The economy is still in the crapper. They will fix it, add jobs by the thousands, lower taxes for everyone and all this will happen in a very short time.
He was also absent from the last Republican run against Obama, the one with Sarah Palin. Who is also nowhere to be found this time out.
Obama and Clinton tell us, “Hey, aren’t you better off than you were four years ago?”
Not much new there.
The approach is simple: things are not near where we want them to be but Obama stopped the bleeding. We could be under water had the Republicans stayed in office. Obama is realistic. “It will take some time to fix all this.”
Of course he blames the Republicans for getting us all jacked up in the first place.
Me, I think its largely a matter of timing.
