    Positive Negative

    Positive Negative

    Both Newt’s campaign (first video below) and a pro-Newt SuperPAC have hit the airwaves in Iowa with positive ads.

    Meanwhile, I assume that the massive Romney SuperPAC ad buy will be hitting the airwaves in Iowa at the same time.

    There is no question that the negative ads have hurt Newt, who has not even had the money to run positive ads with any frequency. I have to wonder how this will play out in the final week, with the contrast between the relentless attacks on Newt, and the positive message.

    Yes — we definitely need to *insist* that Virginia stop the practice of verifying signatures. Next thing you know those rascals will want to check ID as well. We want a Republican candidate who knows how to play the democrat’s game!

    Expected headline: “VA GOP Endorses Back Room Politics”. Way to go, establishment GOP. Gotta luv it. Driving voters away from the most critical presidential election ever. Beyond stupid.

    I love Newt’s ad – that’s what we’ve been waiting for – the newt who spoke in thedebates. The Christmas/GeorgeWashington/Delaware ad was ok, but too soft spoken and almost saccharine – THIS is what we need, someone who lays it out in clear, no uncertain terms.

    The second ad, the PAC ad – meh. They should put the money behind a nice run of ads like the Newt ad.

    Here are a few plus minus absurdios regarding Newt vs Mitt
    Mitt is a say anything candidate while Newt will say what is on his mind (not always good but sometime spectacular)
    +Newt
    We elect senators and governors to the presidency, and sometimes Generals.
    +Mitt
    Romney is pretty, Newt is scruffy. Women like pretty men used to trend for scruffy
    even
    Newt created, yes created, the atmosphere that allowed for the first time a Republican House and a Republican Senate. Mitt has no Federal experience and was an unpopular and fairly ineffective Gov. in a state so blue it is suffocating.
    +Newt
    Mitt has the establishment behind him. Mitt has the press behind him. Mitt, seems to have, the Repubs giving him the good old loyal, “you have worked so long and hard” mantel that they gave Dole and McCain.
    +Mitt
    Newt doesn’t know that there is a box to think within, Mitt he likes the Big Box
    +Newt
    Newts got more baggage than a bullet train to a debutant ball, Mitt is perceived to be so squeaky clean that he could become a Saint (problem being that he is not a catholic so no sainthood)
    even
    Mitt likes women, Newt really likes women
    +Mitt
