Mike Huckabee News
Jul 18 2012
This is from yesterday's Huckabee Report:
Well, the two Presidential candidates are going at each other like Rock ‘Em-Sock ‘Em Robots. Obama is continuing to hammer Romney on Bain Capital and releasing his tax forms. But Romney has stopped demanding apologies and gone on offense. He’s launched a new line of attack, accusing Obama of crony capitalism, giving billions of dollars in taxpayer loans that are never repaid to favored green-related companies run by big Democratic donors. I guess in that way, Obama’s right: those businesses wouldn’t exist without government help.
But while all this political carnage is going on at the top, the Republican National Committee has launched a new ad taking a completely different direction. They’ve realized that a lot of Obama’s support is based in emotion. They’re people who were moved by his speeches in 2008, and still like him personally, which makes it hard for them to judge the results of his policies objectively. You can’t convince those people to change their votes by attacking Obama, because it just makes them defend him. So the RNC has started running a whole new kind of ad in battleground states: the kinder, gentler attack ad. There’s no “mean tone,” and it doesn’t even mention Mitt Romney. Instead, it credits Obama for having big plans to fix the economy and unemployment in 2008. Then it shows the results. Then it sympathetically reassures viewers that, quote: “He tried. You tried. It’s OK to make a change.” Sounds almost like a Hallmark card.
I don’t know if it will work, but I’ll bet TV viewers in the battleground states will be at least grateful for being able to go 30 seconds without a headache.
I want to know what you think. Leave me a comment below. I read them!
