The headline some of you thought you’d never see. #rsrh

Mind you, I always thought that we would, although I guessed that it’d take about 20 months to show up, not 12.

GOP to tie Obama to Dem candidates.”

Isn’t it pretty? More:

The challenge will be to link Democrats with the administration on such issues as spending, bailouts, healthcare and cap-and-trade while not personally attacking Obama, who remains personally well-liked even as his standing erodes. So, at least in purple states or districts, don’t expect to see an ad where the faces of Democratic candidates are morphed into that of the president—a time-honored approach from past campaigns.

But Republicans are unmistakably enthusiastic – and downright giddy in some cases – about the prospect of Democrats stumping with the president in their states, a vivid reminder about how starkly different the political landscape seems now than when Obama took office.

Thus, expect a lot of the President being lumped in with such… iconic… Democrats as Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, John Murtha, and Al Franken (add your own favorite clown, crook, or creep, of course). Which suggests that there’s an interesting counter-move for this administration…

    Republicans taking their lead from the tea party people , ehh.

    They need to stay away from Newt’s ‘the second contract’ crap he is peddling. It’s a matter of fact that the first contract in 1994 had nothing to do with the defeat in 1994 — It was the 1994 Assault Weapons lies that caused the defeat of Democrats, especially in the House. Ask Bill; Clinton who said the AW ban cost him 60-65 House seats. Having had a major part in the defolyate campaign, I was there. We advertised guns all the time, and the RNC wouldn’t contribute a dime to what they saw as a losing campaign.

    We should stick with the tea party themes ….. And the US Constitution.
