Winning vs. Governing

Team Obama has made its election strategy all too clear by its actions: Accuse Mitt Romney and now Paul Ryan (without a shed of evidence) of not paying taxes, of being responsible for a woman’s death, of seeking to destroy Medicare, and so on. For the president, this campaign is all about winning, by any means necessary. He is counting on an ignorant public and a compliant media.

For Team Romney, however, the election is all about governing. Expect to see trenchant critiques of the Obama administration’s policy failures as well as solid, specific proposals on how to get America back on track. R&R are counting on voters to see past the distractions in order to focus on the real issues.

I know which approach I’ll choose. How about you?
