Obama strategists openly admit they plan to carry out one of the ugliest general election campaigns ever:
   It comes as no surprise that the Obama reelection campaign plans to continue with a “divide and conquer” strategy pitting Americans of different ethnic groups, socioeconomic status, gender and age, against one another through the summer up until the general election. The president has no record to run on and the “Post-partisan Obama” died long before the GOP primary race heated up.
   What is somewhat shocking is how shameless the Obama campaign team is in showing their devious hand. Throughout Heilemann’s article campaign aides are quoted proudly admitting what has been their strategy of stirring the pot during the GOP primary through the general election this November, using hyperbolic attacks against Romney–”freezing him like a bug in amber at the end of the dinosaur era”– while giving absolutely no reason why their candidate deserves to be reelected after his first term performance, or what he plans to do if given a second term.
How We’re Sowing the Seeds of Self-Destruction: Who is really to blame for our nation’s decline? Too many of us have capitulated. Too many Americans have adopted the cop-out, “While I’m personally opposed, I don’t want to impose my morality on other people.” So while more and more generally conservative people are taking this position, the immoral minority has imposed its conception of morality on us. It’s time that we do something about it before we are really screwed.
"Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall, when the wise are banished from the public councils, because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded, because they flatter the people, in order to betray them." -- Justice Joseph Story

When Romney changes his position, he is a "flip-flopper. But when Obama changes his position, he is "evolved"?
