As the title suggested, beginning next week, Karl Rove is starting up his planned 200 Million dollar attack ad onslaught against President Obama. We're going to need to be ready to counter it and need to help the Obama campaign counter it.
The Crossroads advertising push — the timing of which has been the subject of avid speculation at the Obama campaign headquarters in Chicago — would give the campaign of Mitt Romney, the Republican front-runner, the time and cover to map out its national organization, replenish its bank account and put the finishing touches on its own long-discussed advertising plan, which is expected to highlight the economic pain of ordinary Americans.So it is apparent that this whole effort is to give Mitt Romney time to replenish his funding and get ready for the general election. This is the game. What's also curious about this attack is what the message seems to be:
Crossroads was founded with help from the Republican strategists Karl Rove and Ed Gillespie — the latter just signed on as an adviser to Mr. Romney — and so far it has largely been sitting on the sidelines, studying the electorate and planning for the fall as the Republican nominating contest continued.
But, Mr. Law said, interviews with independent voters, as well as uncommitted Democrats and Republicans who supported Mr. Obama in 2008, have revealed an alternate “emerging view” that Crossroads will seek to solidify, “that Obama just may not be up to the job, he can’t seem to fix things he promised he would fix.”Hmm... Nice guy who's in over his head? Where have we heard that before? Romney calls Obama "in over his head"
It looks like the general election has begun, and it's going to be brutal. There appears to be no attempt on the part of the Romney campaign or American X Roads in helping Romney's image. It's just to attack President Obama.
Here's my recommendation as to what we should do: Donate to Barack Obama
