Obama’s legacy: Negative campaign

From page A8 | November 26, 2012 |

The way the election turned out, it’s obvious that more than half of Americans want big government, high taxes, high gas prices, high unemployment rates, high poverty rates, high food stamp rates, deficit spending, high national debt, a lack of immigration reform, a lack of government transparency, want to play the race card, and want class warfare and divisiveness.

Also, let’s not forget that President Barack Obama just ran the sleaziest, most negative campaign in the history of American politics. This will be part of his legacy.

    Or if people really don't want all of those things, there must be some other expalantion for why Obama won. I mean, he was running against that other guy, whats-his-name. Same guy who soon after the election doubled down on this 47% view of the American electorate, this time in public, so now there can be no doubt what he meant the first time. Just maybe a lot of peopple did the comparison and chose Obama as better for representing the nation and their interests.

    More likely they chose the lessor of two evils but sadly couldn't pick which one was really the worst.

    Geez more sour grapes? Ordinarily I wouldn’t comment on this type of hyperbole, but what a mess! The American majority voted against the far right leaning GOP and the Tea Party propagandist's. The world is a better place because of it, we will now move forward.

    sleaziest campaign? The Republicans ran a 4+ year campaign against President Obama in asking for his birth certificate, saying he's "Not One of Us", he's a kenyan, a communist, socialist. He's not a real Christian...actually he's a muslim. Orly Taitz, Donald Trump, & Joe Arpaio looking to stay relevant. Obama is Hitler, the Dems are Nazis. He's a witchdoctor who is growing watermelons on the white house lawn. Need I include more examples...

    No one lied than Romney/Ryan. Ryan's convention speech was universally characterized as the most dishonest in history. Thank God for the election results.
