Watching the latest Obama campaign web video, Jim Geraghty observes, “Obama is dealing with the fact that he doesn’t have much of a record to run on by asserting that such a record is there — i.e, ‘progress’ and ‘change’ without ever trying to make the argument that Americans are indeed better off now than they were four years ago.”
“One year from now,” the ad warns, “all our progress could be erased.” Given how the Obama Democrats define progress nowadays, I agree with politicaljunkiemom who says, “Please, bring out the good erasers.”
The ad fails to specify what exactly that progress is, save the promise of change, whatever that means. (Geraghty does identify some of the progress made since Obama took office.) Ed Morrissey believes that the “ad reveals the core election strategy for Team Obama — fear“:
The ad reveals the core election strategy for Team Obama — fear. “Oooh, without me, America will be scary!“ This strategy comes as no surprise, because after Obama’s record of incompetence and failure, fear is all they have left.
Wondering if more conservatives will be linking this ad to mock it than will Obama supporters to herald its message.
