After watching the national debt skyrocket under President Barack Obama, it's not surprising that his campaign is operating in a similar fashion. Reports that Team Obama raised less than they spent in June is the kind of economics we've come to expect from this president and his cronies. We've also come to expect that his obscenely expensive ideas, always financed with other people's money, always fail miserably.
To date, Mr. Obama's re-election campaign has spent $107 million on television ads, the vast majority of which attack presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney's business record. The return on that investment? Another Obama failure.
According to a new USA TODAY/Gallup poll, 63% of those surveyed say Mr. Romney's business background, including his tenure at Bain Capital, would cause him to make good decisions, not bad ones, in dealing with the nation's economic problems over the next four years.
More bad news for our Candidate-in-Chief: 61% of poll respondents say the government is trying to do too many things that should be left to individuals and businesses - that's a new high for that question which Gallup began asking in 1992. And 54% of those surveyed said Mr. Romney has the personality and leadership qualities a president should have - that's up 1% from a similar poll in February despite the $107 million in attack ads from the president.
Whether incompetently trying to do his job or desperately trying to hold onto his job, Mr. Obama's method of operation remains the same - take obscene amounts of money from those who actually earned it, spend all of it and more on ridiculous schemes and gimmicks, then fail.
