See Dick. See Dick run for reelection:
Charles Krauthammer argues that President Obama’s campaign money will have “no effect” on getting him “out of the box on explaining high unemployment.” Instead, he says it will “be used on negative advertising. It’s going to be the dirtiest campaign you have ever seen. It’s going to be almost a billion dollars of sheer attacks because it’s essentially a referendum on Obama. Unless the Democrats can make the personality or the baggage or the history of the Republican the issue, and that’s what you do if you’re an incumbent. You have a lot of money, it’s going to be an incredibly negative campaign.”
In fairness, Dick doesn’t have a lot of options. What’s he gonna do, run ads extolling the virtues of Obamacare?
Four years ago Obama was a blank slate with no record to talk about. So he spent most of the $750 million he raised distorting the records of Hillary Clinton, John McCain and Sarah Palin. Now for the first time in his career he’s got a record to talk about and it’s the last thing he wants to discuss.
