    On private call, Republicans say attacking Obama personally is too dangerous
    Yahoo News exclusive
    By Rachel Rose Hartman | The Ticket – 1 hr 16 mins ago


    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.

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

    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:

    The hell it is!

    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.

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

    There is a need for catharsis. The level of contempt is too large for mere policy debate.

    Because THEY will be launching personal attacks (Hell, they already have, for instance see San Franfreako's answer to Skeletor and her news conference this week), since the Dems sure as Hell aren't going to be bragging about Obama's record. Refusing to respond in kind - 'Staying above the fray' - just doesn't work, as McCain's elitist Beltway-insider approach should have proved to any doubters. The electorate wants red meat, not escargot.
