So I'd suggest that we'll be seeing a bit of a shift in the Obama campaign strategy in the coming weeks. Continuing the tit-for-tat attacks would only aid the Republicans as voters get more cynical about the whole process. Its time to clarify the choice. And instead of a focus on the candidate's past, its time we started to look...And what do you know?! Here's the ad they released today.
No, that prediction did not require a mind-meld with David Plouffe :-)
Some of us have been following this candidate and his team very closely now for 4-5 years and have gotten to know their style.
This is not a team that was going to spend 4 months attacking their opponent. There was a reason for all of that...to lay the groundwork for American voters to understand why Romney would support things like MORE tax cuts for the wealthy and voucherizing Medicare to pay for them.
I suspect that in the coming months there will be a refresher course here and there about Bain and Romney's tax returns. But overall, its time to move on to making the case about the choice the American people will face on November 6th.
