Don’t think someone who compares those who oppose his policies to Social Darwinists or members of the Flat Earth Society can run as a post-partisan healer. Linking the same video, Ed Morrissey offers this sbout the incumbent’s reelection strategy:
This is not a campaign that relishes running on the so-called accomplishments of the incumbent; almost 70% of voters wanted the Supreme Court to partially or completely overturn his signature legislation, and the economic stagnation of the last three years means he can’t run on pocketbook issues. The only way he can win is if the election becomes another referendum on George W. Bush, which is exactly the message that Obama’s ads try to send.
No wonder he and his supporters have been spending so much time bashing the man who has long since retired to Texas–and who has largely absented himself from public life.
NB: Tweaked the title to make it a question.
