  1. republicans for the last 4 years, through their mouthpieces fox news and rush ect, have called obama every name in the book. they have made up all kinds of bogus charges. so much so that the public has come to expect that they are being misled yet again. now during the election season when the republicans need to attack obama the public is tuning them out because all the other attacks were bogus:

    For Republican strategists wondering why “You didn’t build that” wasn’t enough to push Mitt Romney into a lead while “47 percent” is breaking through, Haley Barbour may have answer for you.

    Barbour’s firm Resurgent Republic conducted focus groups of blue collar voters in Ohio and suburban women in Virginia who supported Obama in 2008 but are now undecided. Both are swing demographics that Romney is working to win over in order to flip each state from blue to red.

    Their findings? Voters are a lot more willing to believe attacks based around Romney quotes than they are on Obama quotes.

    “Whenever we showed direct quotes from President Obama over the last few years, voters consistently say that this is probably taken out of context and they don’t seem to hold that same standard with Governor Romney,” pollster Linda DiVall, who conducted the Virginia focus groups, said in a conference call announcing the findings Monday.
