Republican Convention Sharpens the Choice (Townhall.com) August 31, 2012

Posted by daviddavenport in Radio Commentaries.

The Republican National Convention sharpened the choice between President Obama, who now owns the underperforming economy, and Governor Romney who, Republicans say, knows how to fix it. 

If voters associate Obama with the sluggish economy and high unemployment, advantage Romney.  If Obama can redirect the campaign to likeability and social issues, his strengths come to the fore.

In many ways, this is like the election of 1932, Roosevelt versus Hoover.  But in 2012 it is the liberal democrat who owns the bad economy, and the conservative Republican who has a new approach.

I’m reminded of Herbert Hoover’s words from 1932:  “This campaign is more than a contest between two men. It is more than a contest between two parties. It is a contest between two philosophies of government.”

… So true for the election of 2012.
