According to many recent polls, Obama's campaign attacks on Mitt Romney's ties to Bain Capital are working. Despite Romney's insistence that his experience at Bain makes him an ideal candidate to fix the nation's economic woes, evidence seems to be mounting that Newt Gingerich had it right when he labeled Mitt a "Vulture Capitalist" instead of being a "Venture" capitalist. Romney now is continuing to fight this image, which is exactly why the Obama campaign has spent so much money this early in the election cycle. The effort to frame Romney in a negative light early has cost the Obama camp millions of campaign ad dollars, but the strategy according to recent polls seems to be working and Romney is now being forced to continue his defense of his tenure at Bain. Interesting to note, Romney continues to shy away from his tenure as Governor of Massachusetts, where the state fell to 47th in job creation during his term in office. This is another campaign attack by the Obama camp that seems to be working. I also find it interesting to note that GOP leaning media had a field day reporting that the Obama Campaign was "in the red" by spending more than it raked in with campaign fundraising. Opposition supporting folks raved that this was an indication that Obama's support is waning. The reality though is that Obama's team spent a ton of money buying up "Ad Space" early in the campaign to lock up ad time for later use in the campaign. By doing so, he precludes the Romney camp and their Super Pac supporters from buying the same time. In a game of political strategy, the Obama folks don't appear to be as naive as the GOP would like us to believe. Perhaps we need to do away with the Equal Access Doctrine and go back to the Fairness Doctrine?
