    Stop campaigning like Democrats

    Stop campaigning like Democrats

    I criticized Mitt Romney’s campaign on the night of the Reagan Library debate for having a spokesman claim that Perry wanted to kill social security, linking to this tweet by John McCormack:

    The Romney campaign has been hitting similar themes for the past month.  It’s the type of scare tactic Democrats use against Republicans.

    The Perry campaign is going down a similarly unjustified path in its use of the “rich guy” card against Romney, a tactic which has just started in this video just released by the Perry campaign:

    Although it’s subtle, the “rich guy” card is played with the line “Even the richest man … can’t buy back his past”:

    Do we really need to go there? Do we need to give people like “Blue Texan” at Firedoglake (where I first saw attention called to the ploy) the ability to deflect from Obama’s class warfare by sticking our own toes in that pool?

    I really wish Romney and Perry would stop campaigning like Democrats.

    I’ve been longing for the RNC to turn its back on candidates who go negative on their own side. We won’t see it happen, but I’ve been longing for it.
