Barack Obama is campaigning, we guess in Asia? And he told the editors of Univision News that his re-election strategy doesn’t require any nasty ads or name-calling. “We may just run clips of the Republican debates verbatim,” he told the Spanish-language network. “We won’t even comment on them, we’ll just run those in a loop.” No wonder the liberals are so depressed. Barack Obama will apparently be re-elected by vaguely reminding voters of the Republicans’ existence.
We picked this up on the Zorabet Tumblr, and it’s kind of devastating:
Many political observers believe that drawing a sharp contrast with Republicans will require Obama to go negative, but the president said he won’t have to use too harsh a tone to accomplish that.
“I don’t think it requires us to go negative in the sense of us running a bunch of ads that are false, or character assassinations,” Obama told Univision News. “It will be based on facts … We may just run clips of the Republican debates verbatim. We won’t even comment on them, we’ll just run those in a loop on Univision and Telemundo, and people can make up their own minds.”
