7. Going negative with lies is the trademark of republicans (swiftboating), but...


that is a given strategy for them.

Obama team's negative attack works also - for awhile, but not enough for a very small sliver of middle of the road that may go 50-50 both sides. Precisely because Republican's negative attack is effective that Obama must defend by bolstering the point about country's on the road to recovery, and what will be like after full recovery.

You wouldn't believe it until you talk with one that swallowed hook, line, sinker the line that median income is down, more people in poverty under Obama,... forgetting the 2008 crisis triggering the worst recession in decades.

There are 2 types of people: one type is like Lee Iacocca, or Jack Welch repeating the deception that they know full well false to serve their purpose, and the type that truly believe it, not as a convenient pretext for something else (such as racism). Only when talk with one of type 2 that you know they exist. The good news is, some can be convinced otherwise.
