Obama Game Plan: Take Out Romney

Team Obama’s re-election game plan seems to be that the best defense is a good offense — and its chalkboard targets Mitt Romney, based on polls, recent conventional wisdom, and intel that the former Massachusetts governor has a lock on the Republican presidential nomination.

President Barack Obama’s aides and advisers intend to attack Romney’s character and business background as a basic strategy for his re-election campaign at this point, according to Politico.

Political reality dictates the plan, as Obama continues to be popular personally even though his performance approval is tanking and Americans fear the country is on the wrong track, according to Politico.
“Unless things change and Obama can run on accomplishments, he will have to kill Romney,” a prominent Democratic strategist aligned with the White House told Politico.

“Romney officials shrug off the tough talk, arguing that there’s nothing Obama can do that will turn the campaign away from functioning as a referendum on his stewardship of the economy,” Politico reports.
And Texas Gov. Rick Perry could upset the game plan if he announces his own bid for the GOP nod, as he does well in polls against Romney. Word has it that he’ll announce within days.
