They are BOTH campaigning negatively. Romney is attacking Obama on Obama's job performance and some dubious issues and Obama is doing the same to Romney.

Indiana for a Democratic President, for pete's sake. (The Obama campaign had wanted to send my West Coast friend to Indiana to work for Obama and he had refused to go, thinking it was a lost cause and therefore a waste of his summer, something he regretted bitterly on election night 2008.)
