Do we want to have the same old attack politics we've become accustomed to, the same slash-and-burn politics? . . . We're not going to run around doing negative ads. We're going to keep it positive, we're going to talk about the issues. Candidate Barack Obama, April 28, 2008
Look at what they [Republicans] value, and look at their budget. And look what they're proposing. [Romney] said in the first 100 days, he's going to let the big banks write their own rules -- unchain Wall Street. They're gonna put y'all back in chains. Vice President Joe Biden, August 14, 2012
So . . . the man who once pledged to end the era of the "same old attack politics" is now okay with his running mate suggesting that their opponents, the party of Abraham Lincoln, want to bring back slavery.
...Romney responded Tuesday night, saying: "This is what an angry and desperate Presidency looks like. President Obama knows better, promised better and America deserves better. Over the last four years, this President has pushed Republicans and Democrats as far apart as they can go. And now he and his allies are pushing us all even further apart by dividing us into groups. He demonizes some. He panders to others. His campaign strategy is to smash America apart and then cobble together 51 percent of the pieces. If an American president wins that way, we all lose."
...By September, the Obama campaign will be Photoshopping Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan into Nuremberg rally photos.
As if the Sorons at MoveOn.org haven't already prepared those for next month.
