Excuse me. Dainels has nothng to say about how anyone does anything. He is a man who could have run for President if there was no questions about what went on when his wife left her children, and husband for another man a few years ago. He should clean his own house, and then have a say.

Allen West: Obama Has Been "An Abject Failure In Everything That He Has Done"


April 17, 2012

US Rep. Allen West (CD 22) speaks at a tax day rally in Wellington, Florida on April 15, 2012 and calls out Obama.

West The silence from the other side is deafening! Why have an honest debate about actual issues when you have lies, distortion, rhetoric, empty slogans, personal attacks, sound bites, bumper sticker brilliance, voter fraud and lapdog media spinmeisters on your side libs and lefties! That's what's left when you have no positive record to run on, no new ideas (just warmed over 20th Century already tried and failed big government solutions that create more problems than they solve) and nothing positive to say, absolutely nothing! Rep. West asks in the video what the other side's vision of the future is.

I'll tell you what it is, it's already here on the other side of the ocean (and its not a pretty economic picture, its actually quite grotesque)....."The United States of Greece/Italy/Portugal/Spain/Ir eland" and "have a nice day".

I found a study that analyzed the content of the ads, not the number of ads, and it gave a slight edge in negative statements to Obama-- 68%—compared to 62 percent to McCain.

The best part of the GOP primaries is watching the right-wing base piss and moan about the fact that they have no other choice than to shut up and get behind RINO Romney after our version of Operation Chaos turn out to be a complete success… even better is that Romney having burned so many bridges with his cold-blooded negative campaign style that you don’t see any “true conservatives” coming out with an enthusiastic endorsement. Couple that with the enthusiastic gap between the patriotic Americans that can’t wait to vote for our Osama-killing President and the pathetic idiots that will hold their nose and vote for Romney and you are beginning to see why President Obama is favored to win re=election in another landslide.

Obama Presidential Candidates' Television Ads Most Negative In recent history

ScienceDaily (Oct. 31, 2008)— The 2008 presidential campaign, as reflected in candidates' television spots, has been one of the most negative campaigns in 60 years.

A University of Missouri professor analyzed this year's candidates' television spots, including last night's 30-minute ad by Sen. Barack Obama and found that only one other campaign matched this level of negativity (Eisenhower).

Obama outpaces McCain in negative ads


September 17, 200

by Mark Silva and updated with ads.

The presidential candidates have poured more than $15 million into campaign commercials since the close of their nominating conventions, targeting the most critical 15-17. contested states with their ad buys - and the tone of it all has grown increasingly negative.

In the first week of ads after the conventions last week, 77 percent of the ads that Democrat Barack Obama aired were negative, according to a report today of the Wisconsin Advertising Project, and 56 percent of the ads that Republican John McCain aired in conjunction with his party were negative.

Obama ratchets up negative advertising

August 20, 2008
Noam N. Levey
Times Staff Writer

WASHINGTON — Sen. Barack Obama, under persistent attack from his Republican rival, is intensifying his own negative ad campaign targeting Sen. John McCain in key battleground states.

The negative ads, running in 18 states, hew to themes that Democrats and groups allied with the party have been hitting for months. But they mark a change for the Obama campaign, which until recently concentrated its advertising money on casting the freshman Illinois senator in a positive glow.

The sharply worded ads match toughening rhetoric from Obama himself on the campaign trail.

Obama's negative turn, however, runs the risk of undermining his promise to bring change to the political system. It may also compete with the candidate's other messages, namely that he is ready to be commander in chief.

GOP strategist Frank Luntz said that Sen. John F. Kerry failed to make such a case for himself as the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee.

"Kerry did an effective job of showing that Bush didn't deserve to be president," Luntz cautioned. "But 'none of the above' isn't on the ballot. And in the end, Kerry did not give voters enough of a reason to choose him."

The Obama campaign, which would not release details about the ad buys, has kept relatively quiet about the advertising, eschewing the now-standard practice of touting new ads to reporters in hopes of getting free coverage. The ads are not posted on Obama's website.

"It's revealing that Barack Obama attempts to run a campaign under the thin veil of a positive message when he has consistently shown that he's running a negative campaign," said McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds.

Obama is so bad. I can't wait until Bishop Rmoney is president because he will bring back school prayer. We will teach the children about TRUTH: Now I lay me down to sleep. I pray Joseph Smith my soul to keep. If should not awake, I pray for Joseph Smith my soul to take. Amen

New Republic: Will Obama Run A Negative Campaign?

by Ed Kilgore
NPR
November 30, 2011


If Obama wins with a "negative campaign" focusing on the extremism of the Republican Party, he will make his second term a shambles, marked only by increased partisanship as insulted conservatives refuse to cooperate with his agenda.
