So they're going after Kerry again? Glad to make this as ugly as I can. Via.
Heh, I thought PBO was running the most nasty, negative campaign ever!!!!
In March 2004, as Massachusetts Senator John Kerry emerged as the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, then-President George W. Bush was ready to strike, dropping $40 million on ads that mostly attacked his opponent on defense spending, terrorism and taxes.
In the early stage of this year’s general election campaign, President Barack Obama and his allies are taking a different tack. They haven’t assailed presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney with the same intensity, spending $4.5 million to run ads in March, April and early May, one-ninth of Bush’s total during the same three-month period four years ago, according to New York-based Kantar Media’s CMAG, an advertising tracking firm.
While Obama intensified his ad campaign this month, the spots tout his record as president more than they attack Romney, the data shows.
“You don’t have anywhere near the scope of activity in advertising that you had at this point in 2004,” even when super-political action committees are considered in the count, Anthony Corrado, a political scientist at Colby College in Waterville, Maine, said in a telephone interview.

Ma. Governor Mitt Romney says Ma. Senator John Kerry has been on both sides of many issues in a 2004 campaign fundraiser speech for President Bush.
Andrew Kaczynski went on to inform me, via email, that the speech in the video was given on March 24, 2004 in Boston.
It's hard to see how this won't end up in a future campaign ad.
1. Look how young he and his daughters look! Michelle the Gorgeous never changes.
2. Compare and contrast then and now in terms of promises, ideals, hopes, and how you feel.
3. Now that you've done all that, no matter how you feel, you have to admit the GOP roster riding in Clown Car '12 don't even come close.
Guess what CNN and CBS caught on camera? No, not another assault of a young liberal woman, and no, not Christine O'Donnell casting a spell over Bil Maher. Uh-uh. Even better:
A federal subpoena, issued by Ohio attorney Cliff Arnebeck and sanctioned by the Office of Ohio Secretary of State, was served last Sunday in Washington to Karl Rove on his way to an appearance on the CBS news program Face the Nation. [...]
In an article written by Bob Fitrakis and Harvey Wasserman and published at OpEdNews.com, the federal subpoena orders Rove to testify in deposition about his role in the alleged theft of the 2004 election, and to discuss his orchestration of tens of millions of corporate/billionaire dollars in this year's General Elections on November 2.
The minute I find the video, it will be posted. Well, right after I open some Champagne.
