Hiring is down and there are concerns that young people may not turn out to vote for the president. That’s a lot of bad news for Team Obama, and given that the economy is not going to get better anytime soon, the natural response for the president’s re-election campaign will be to throw everything–including the kitchen sink–at Mitt Romney. Barack Obama’s message to the populace will be “you may not like me, but the other guy is a total bum.”
Hardly “Change We Can Believe In,” eh? But none of this should come as a surprise. This president doesn’t have much of a record to run on. Negative campaigning is going to be about the only weapon left to him.
