Obama, Romney and Presidential Messaging

Hosted by

With five months to go until the presidential election, tens of millions of dollars are already being spent on campaign advertising. The Obama campaign got into trouble with some of the President's own supporters this week with a TV commercial featuring laid-off workers at a company sold by Bain Capital when Mitt Romney was in charge. When prominent Democrats attacked the Obama attack ad, the Romney campaign struck back. Are you listening? What are the risks of turning you off instead of turning you on?
