American politics is replete with examples where a protracted campaign battle was waged and the forever “likable” candidate was dragged down to Earth faster than a falling star.
Democrats are experts at employing this strategy — it’s how they destroyed George W. Bush and Sarah Palin. Sure, Bush and Palin did themselves no favors. But do not kid yourselves: the campaigns against them were engineered from the moment they walked onto the national political stage.
Republicans can bring the campaign war to American’s television sets, which have generally avoided in-depth investigations into Solyndra and Fast & Furious. Republicans can shed light on Obama’s distortions, cover-ups and questionable associations. It will be like shooting fish in a barrel, fish that ironically received a $500 million guaranteed loan from the Department of Energy.
When going after Obama’s character, one needs only to focus on what has already been demonstrated: that he lacks it. Republicans need to burst the ignorance bubble perpetuated by Obama’s media royal guards. It’s already beginning to burst and Republicans have the ability to speed that process along. The concept is saturation and the rule is repetition over spaced intervals for greatest retention.
It is no longer 2008 and Obama no longer possesses the magical messianic power to part the political seas.
