How Mitt Romney Used Obama’s Own Campaign To Win Voter Support

A Vanderbilt University study indicates the Romney campaign is crushing Barack Obama among Independent voters by turning Obama’s own political campaign against him.



Study: Romney criticism of controversial cancer ad effective with swing voters


A new study by Vanderbilt University found that an ad from Mitt Romney criticizing President Obama over a super-PAC attack that insinuated the presumptive Republican nominee was responsible for the death of a cancer patient is having a measurable effect on swing voters.

The study found that Romney’s “America Deserves Better” commercial was resonating with swing voters, moving “pure independents” who remained undecided some 6 percentage points in the Republican’s favor. 

“What is new here is that the ‘America Deserves Better’ ad seems to score points for Romney,” Ad Rating Project leader and Vanderbilt political science Professor John Geer told UPI.

“It was the first time among all the ads we have studied where a Romney attack moves down the president’s numbers among pure independents,” he continued.

      Leo Gerard and the Chicago Thugs

      Was Joe Soptic famous before he was famous?

      Did a member of the Obama Administration bring Soptic to the attention of both the Obama campaign and the pro-Obama SuperPAC run by ex-Obama White House aide Bill Burton?

      Which would formally tie the administration itself to the activities of the SuperPAC? A violation of federal election law?

      Let’s get to this by starting with Leo Gerard.


      Leo Gerard. He would be a member of the Obama Administration’s Advisory Committee on Trade Policy and Negotiations (ACTPN).

      • Didn’t the judge throw Frawley in a psych ward??? If the judge has declared him incompetent …then Corsi should release the tapes…as they prove The man who calls himself Obama is working in concert wit Auchi..the bagman who runs OPEC….Corsi has a shred of decency and a scintilla of loyalty to the United States of America…he’ll release the proof positive…as that proof of subversion does go straight back to Chicago…Think Auchi is even still in the country??? His boys Rezco and Blago are on ice…

          Well put. It is amazing that the man at the center of the oil for food scandal backs Obama, the canidate so vocal about Iraq, visits Obama in Chicago along with Tony Rezko and Daniel Frawley, two individuals who stand to make millions on contracts in Iraq, etc.,etc and Jerome Corsi will not share with the world the tape that details the secret meeting in Rezko’s basement. If Corsi does not step up. He has no credibility.

          Corsi’srelease of the Frawley tape has increased importance due to the fact that Obama and Dick Durbin are trying to rush the appoinment of Daniel Frawley’s pro bono attorney Thomas Durkin to the federal bench. Illinois pay to play on disdplay for all to see. Jerome , you can do something about this, why are you silent ?

          • The only thing gained by waiting is one more judge with a lifetime appointment the Chicago way. This tape is not of of the October surprise type, it is get it out right away and start explaining to Americans just how deep and how serious a threat this is, type.

      • It’s my understanding that everything Arpio and Crosi pulled together has been handed over to Congress… I also saw that the GOP put the issue of radical Islam on the platform.

        May be this isn’t an October surprise, but a means of invalidating Obama’s Presidency after the election?

        I can hope anyway.

    • Crap that Obama throws usually misses, and what does his hand look and smell like after throwing it? And who wants to shake it?
