Democrats Find US Better Compared to Four Years Ago
The Obama campaign said that Americans are better off today than they were four years ago. But the campaign had initially fumbled with a reply to the question given by Mitt Romney last week. This complicated their effort to start highlighting themes the president wants to tackle.
The Obama campaign wants to start with an argument that Romney would raise taxes on the middle class while cutting rates for the wealthy. This has been Obama’s stance and he wants to show that Romney has always showed intention of profit at the expense of workers. The president also maintained that Romney has an unfair tax advantage over regular people.
The Obama campaign launched a new commercial to address the point that the middle class is carrying a heavy load in America but Romney doesn’t see it. Obama and his camp are putting the finishing touches on a program for the Democratic National Convention that would be different from the one they showed four years ago.
President Obama will try to convince wavering supporters who are being courted by Romney. He must show them that they made the right decision four years ago and he has the country on the right path towards sustainable recovery even if they don’t feel it.
Obama campaign will asked the voters to imagine what it would be like under a Romney presidency. Republicans said that they will not stop with their campaign this week. Representative Paul Ryan, Romney’s running mate, is scheduled to visit North Carolina.
President Obama’s aides were initially inconsistent with their answers regarding Romney’s statement during his nomination acceptance speech. David Axelrod, Obama’s top strategist, said that the nation is in a better position than we were four years ago with regards to the economy. But Governor Martin O’Malley of Maryland, said no and blamed the Republicans for it.
