    Obama campaign tactics against Romney already surface

    Obama campaign tactics against Romney already surface

    Politico recently reported that Obama’s campaign strategy was to attack and take down Mitt Romney with class warfare and attacks on Romney’s integrity.

    Sure enough, Romney was heckled in Iowa in what obviously was a set up by people trying to create sound bites about Social Security and Medicare (which they were successful in doing).  Maybe it’s just coincidence, but I doubt it.

    At some point Romney said that “corporations are people,” which has the mainstream media jumping for joy.

    Overall I think Romney handled it well, and gave good explanations, all of which will be ignored by the mainstream media in favor of the “corporations are people” sound bite.

    Not bad. Maybe he can get a little coaching from Chris Christie.

    I sorta expected Mitt to say, “I paid for this microphone,” but that’d be too obvious.

    Update: Last night I was listening on the car radio (Sirius) to Sean Hannity’s show broadcast on Fox from the Iowa State Fairgrounds. At around 9:30, he had Mike Huckabee on as a guest (who won the Republican Iowa Caucuses in 2008), and this heckling incident was raised by Sean as a topic.

    My initial thought was, “Oh, boy. Here we go!”

    As any observer knows, there has always been a real measure of political hostility between Huckabee and Romney.

    But instead, Mike’s answer nearly blew me away. In fact, it was probably a good thing I was stalled in traffic at the time because it was the opposite of what I expected!

    Huckabee actually said this was “Mitt’s finest hour,” and then he went on to praise Mitt openly for the way he is conducting his campaign.

    I don’t know if those two quietly got together and buried the hatchet at some point, but it sure sounded like it to me . . . maybe I should say “when” rather than “if.”

    That could be very good for Mitt in the South.

    here’s the hecklers group

    I haven’t looked at yet to see if they’re in sync with ‘center for american progress’ and the WH
