Who’s Running A Negative Campaign?

Not Obama, says David Axelrod, his porn-stashed campaign guru.

“I would point out that much of our advertising has been positive. We’ve been from the very beginning of this campaign.”

Axelrod said that on CBS’ “This Morning” today.

Except that the Romney campaign has been tabulating the air play of the ads Axelrod and the rest of the Obamite gang, and it seems that Axelrod’s definition of “much” isn’t really what the rest of us would say it is.

The guys at Power Line found this graph that Romney’s people put together…

Three percent is “much,” apparently. Around June 4, when Obama launched the whole Bain Capital offensive, it’s been all negative, all the time for Dr. Rent-A-Mob and the rest of the crew.

John Hinderaker at Power Line offers an explanation…

So this is what “hope and change” came to in the end. There is no mystery, of course, as to why Obama’s campaign is almost entirely negative. He can’t talk about his record in office, because his record is terrible. Smearing Romney is the only course he has left. Looking at the big picture, I continue to believe that a president who can’t talk about his record also can’t be re-elected.

Indeed. It’s unlikely to get better, as that record continues to sparkle

Sales of newly built homes fell hard in June, despite newfound optimism in the housing recovery, especially among the home builders themselves.

Signed contracts to buy new homes fell 8.4 percent from the previous month, according to the U.S. Commerce Department, although they are still up 15 percent from a year ago.

Sales levels are now at their lowest since January.

This is the second miss for housing in the same month. Sales of existing homes fell as well, despite expectations for a gain.

Didn’t we have a flurry of Democrat initiatives passed in an effort to shore up the real estate market in Obama’s first two years? Yes, we recall something about those. Doesn’t appear much was fixed, does it?

The hit parade continues. Which means we’ll see that graph stay pretty much as it is all the way to Election Day.
