Going 'Negative' on Obama
Sunday's Ross Douthat column for the NYT, wherein he labels Obama "Mr. Negative" while finding Romney merely "Mr. Complacent." To hell with this week's study that found Obama's ads 2-1 negative to positive while Romney's have been 5-1 (and not counting the PAC ads). Also, we learn that Obama is nearly a "McGovernite" (no matter that he loves drove kills and can hardly be accused of being "antiwar"). Also: "he’s added Richard Nixon’s style."
