  1. GOP campaign is based on five main themes, three negative and two positive.

    Negative:


    The claim that Obama denigrated businessmen, saying that they didn’t build their own firms — which isn’t true.

    The claim that Obama has gutted Medicare to pay for the expansion of health insurance — which isn’t true.

    The claim that Obama has eliminated the work requirement for welfare — which isn’t true.

    Positive:


    The claim that Ryan has a plan to balance the budget — which isn’t true.

    The claim that Romney has a plan for economic recovery — which isn’t true. (The Economist: “The Romney Programme for Economic Recovery, Growth and Jobs” is like “Fifty Shades of Grey” without the sex).

    It seems to me that there’s a pattern here, but I can’t quit figure it out. The editorial page has some ideas.
