The Obama team better be prepared to be one-upped if they plan on playing dirty during this Presidential campaign.
An according to an article in the National Review, We've already seen signs that back this up.
Some examples include:
The Washington Post piece on a supposed Romney high school hazing was answered with the internet ablaze with Obama's own voice proclaiming his heavy drug use during his college years and unkind treatment of a girl in middle school.
Then there is the liberal medias never ending remider of the Romney dog Seamus riding on the roof of the Romney family station wagon in a custom made carrier 3 decades ago. This was answered with a revelation Obama made in his memoirs about eating dog. Soon the internet was flooded with images of Obama munching on doggie sandwiches.
Team Obama usually starts the exchange, either to distract from dismal economic news, or in zeal to portray Romney as aristocratic and out of touch — but without careful thinking about what the inevitable Romney rebuttal might look like.Perhaps the Romney team has learned something from the Obama/McCain contest of 2008, not to repeat the McCain one-hand-tied-behind-the-back model.
In other words, each time we hear of an irrelevant hit on Romney, we will probably hear of something equally irrelevant — and worse — about Obama, in a way we never would have in 2008. Petty? A distraction from the failing economy? Of course, but the Romney people apparently believe that they must and will achieve deterrence by replying in kind and to such a degree that Team Obama will soon cease playing such a childish game of taunts.
