    There are no skeletons in Obama's closet; everybody already knows the bad and the good about Obama. The scorched-earth strategy of the primaries won't work but Romney and co don't know anything else. Romney's just going to sink lower and lower into the gutter.

    •  Tax cuts of course (1+ / 0-)

      ... not to mention claims that Obama is in the pocket of special interests, especially unions, that Obama ruined the economy and the usual smears that Obama is Muslim and hates freedom..

    •  Old skeletons can be recycled, and facts invented. (0+ / 0-)

      Republicans are amazingly good at concocting quarter-truths or just making stuff up. The party that can't count its own caucus results in two states loves their made-up voter fraud stats. And where if one set of stats - solemnly intoned before a credulous press - turns out to be baseless or trivial, they insist they didn't say "that", or shift ground slightly, or adjust the statement to fit some other set of facts, or dig deep and find "new" evidence, etc.

      The GOP and their ad machines will recycle muslim brainwashing at age 6 at that Indonesian madrassa, the racist Rev. Wright, "Chicago-style politics," domestic terrorist Bill Aires, convicted felon Tony Rezko and the like again and again as if they were yesterday. Anything to avoid their own hypocrisy, disingenuousness and the paucity of their policies.

      This kind of stuff is red meat to the base and some of it will stick in one's memory. To bat it down takes time and energy away from our own arguments on the merits.

      Obama and strong Democratic majorities in 2012!

      Read Krugman's column in this AM's NYTimes. The Mittster is a Keyensian in wolf's clothing! In the general he'll make Obama look like a TeaPooper!or try.
