Obama delivered the same type of campaign-SMEAR & FEAR-that he did when he left Illinois and inflicted himself on the national scene. No plan then; none now. With more than 45% of the American Public on the Government's teat, no campaign can be as 'nice' as Romney's and McCain's were. "Warrior" candidates will be the only 'logical' response to gross negativity. Especially as Dems use more public money to buy Auto Industry, Healthcare...all borrowed from China.
This is only one more step down, no victory lap for the economy yet.
