President Obama told a group of Hispanic journalists today that he won’t need to go negative to win over Latino voters in the 2012 presidential campaign. Instead, he may just let some of the crazy rhetoric coming from the Republican debates speak for itself.
“I don’t think it requires us to go negative in the sense of us running a bunch of ads that are false, or character assassinations,” Obama told Univision News. “It will be based on facts … We may just run clips of the Republican debates verbatim. We won’t even comment on them, we’ll just run those in a loop on Univision and Telemundo, and people can make up their own minds.”
