Republican efforts to personally attack President Obama have pretty much failed. People like Barack too much to believe that he is un-American, a socialist, a communist, a terrorist, a Muslim or a Kenyan, not that there is anything wrong with being a Kenyan or a Muslim. Similarly, Republican attempts to convince people that cutting taxes on the wealthy and further deregulating the banks is a successful path to prosperity hasn't gained much traction.
If I were a Republican campaign strategist with lots of cash from wealthy, corporate and banking donors, I would wait until the last two weeks of the election cycle and then flood the airwaves with television commercials that tried to scare Americans on what a second Obama term might look like. As usual, they won't feel constrained by the facts, and because the ads air so late in the process it will be hard to correct all the misstatements.
Here is one such attempt. I show you this only so you will be prepared. There is nothing I put past these folks. Remember, these are the same folks who are trying to make it impossible for many blacks, Latinos, students, the elderly and the poor to vote in this election. They have trillions to lose in tax breaks, government contracts, defense department deals, oil and gas exploration rights, inside banking deals and unregulated illegal activities if Obama is re-elected and they will do anything to see that that doesn't happen.
