Mike DeWine has a big problem trying to follow the Republican playbook of running on “law and order,” and it’s obvious just by looking at his first campaign ad.Full Story... →
That’s question (and a good one) that Jonathan Chait asks:
Obama’s strategy seems predicated on convincing voters that they really, really like the inexperienced black guy with the foreign-sounding name. Convincing them not to vote for the other guy, the one who embraces the least popular president in modern history, sounds like a better bet to me.Full Story... →
I mean, seriously. Do they smoke crack in meetings? First they criticize Obama for ditching troops in an ad that contains video of him visiting troops, now they put out an ad that when you watch it all you can think is:

“He’s the biggest celebrity in the world”
Damn, that’s a HUGE concession that I wouldn’t be willing to make. Joe America is probably going to at least ask “well, if he’s that popular something must be up”. The beginning of this ad almost looks like it could […]Full Story... →

Yep. The bastards are back!
Starting Tuesday, a group of conservative activists led by Floyd Brown, author of the famous Willie Horton ad used so effectively against Michael Dukakis in 1988, will begin a campaign to tar Obama as weak on crime and terrorism, a strategy that aims to upend Obama’s relatively strong reputation among Republican voters.
