On private call, Republicans say attacking Obama personally is too dangerous
Yahoo News exclusive

Republicans on a private Republican National Committee conference call with allies warned Tuesday that party surrogates should refrain from personal attacks against President Barack Obama, because such a strategy is too hazardous for the GOP.
"We're hesitant to jump on board with heavy attacks" personally against President Obama, Nicholas Thompson, the vice president of Tarrance Group, a Republican polling firm, said on the call. "There's a lot of people who feel sorry for him."
Recent polling data indicates that while the president still suffers significantly low job approval ratings, voters still give "high approval" to Obama personally, Thompson said.
Voters "don't think he's an evil man who's out to change the United States" for the worse--even though many of the same survey respondents agree that his policies have harmed the country, Thompson said. The upshot, Thompson stressed, is that Republicans should "exercise some caution" when talking about the president personally.
WTF! Having flashbacks of McCain's 08' campaign after reading this. I am SO SICK of this kind of BS from weak @ss Republican's. If they aren't going to attack him why even bother running against him? Anyone think Obama surrogates will refrain from "personally attacking" the eventual Republican nominee? I don't even know how to articulate how furious this article makes me.

Not a very private call."Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

While my immediate reaction is "WTF ARE THEY THINKING?!?" the cynic in me says "...Because that's what 527s are for!"

"On private call, Republicans say attacking Obama personally is too dangerous" ....
I guess its a little obvious where McCain got his advise from now.
And ah... just how did that turn out? Hmmmm GOP??
Liberalism is just communism sold by the drink.

The RNC had better wake up and listen to the people that donate------LIKE ME! I will not send another dime to the RNC (Retards-N-Charge) until they have a candidate. I'm sick of these (insert P word) kissing the @$$ of political correctness. It is pure cowardice and stupidity.:mad:Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:

He sure as hell isn't going to refrain from personal attacks on his opponent much less slack up on the verbal attacks he makes on normal Americans on a daily basis.
These weak kneed clowns need to wake the hell up and realize they are trying to play by rules the other side tore up and spit on decades ago.In Memory Of My Friend 1st Sgt. Tim Millsap A Co, 70th Eng. Bn. 3rd Bde 1st AD...K.I.A. 25 April 2005

The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

Every time someone rips obama, they get a boost in the polls. The republicans should stop listening to democrats.

If he is the worst president ever, why would the GOP need to attack him personally? Attacks on his record should be enough.
