Both Presidential Candidates Change Campaign Tactics in Preparation for Fall
After several months of saying that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is someone who frequently changes his position for his own political convenience, Barack Obama is now saying that Romney is a right wing conservative. This is a much different message and could possibly entice voters to decide what they don’t like about Romney for themselves.
On the flip side, Romney has built his own campaign around stating that Obama has been a failure particularly for the economy and recently started offering his own vision for how he would handle the country if he were to be elected president.
These changes in tactics by both candidates suggest that the fall campaign is starting early as well as symbolizing the multiple angles of each person’s plan as well as trying to capture the votes of the 20% or so of US voters who identify themselves as independent.
Several videos have been released from each side in the previous week possibly in an attempt to catapult campaigns into overdrive. Even though the election is still more than six months away the polls are currently showing both candidates in a tight situation meaning that these new videos and campaign tactics will be more important than ever for the final decision of the election.
Obama who order the raid in Pakistan that ended up killing the Al Qaeda leader, Osama bin Laden has been using this event to say that Mitt Romney would not have made the same decisions that led up to the death of bin Laden. A new Web video which is been narrated by Bill Clinton will take a stab at Romney using a four-year-old quote where Ronnie questioned the effectiveness of chasing bin Laden in Pakistan.
The ad asks “the commander in chief gets one chance to make the right decision. Which path would Mitt Romney have taken?”
From the other side, American Crossroads a Republican group that supports Romney released a video attacking Obama’s cool image asking viewers “after four years of a celebrity president, is your life any better?”
