Nope, no smear campaigns.

Id just have the basic TV Ads, stickers, buttons, and so forth. I wouldnt try and hide things I may/maynot do in the past, since itd get out anyways.

No smear for me as well, just get dirt for backup

I would do the TV ads and so forth but I'd be closer to the people, which Bbush and Kerry have failed to do. Ii would make it be that I am still from where I came from upper-middle class and nothing will change and that I will look out for the people instead of the government.

All good republican voters should approve of the Bush method:

1. Fear, terror, divisiveness and appeal to nationalistic pride in adversity.

2. Contract voting machine manufacturers loyal to Bush, to deliver machines that don't have audit trails. Ignore the pesky requests of states like Florida to put the paper trail in place, until they insist.

3. Disenfranchize as many black voters and non-republicans as possible. Make it difficult for them to register and to vote.

4. Hide the truth about reaction to Bush administration actions by disallowing civil protests, manipulating media and blocking international access to presidential website.

5. Address no policy issues except in hot-air filled soundbites with no substance, reinforce only fear and terror and fabricated/elevated national security measures.

6. Lie about what your opponents have said in an attempt to denigrate them and remove focus away from real issues affecting Americans.

7. Lie about what you yourself have said as "president", to cover up bad decisions that cost lives and more, as well as ineptitude and corruption.


8. I forgot. Kiss a baby, and try not to look too awkward about it or drop it on its head.

That is the Bush recipe for success!

Well, I think base it around countless photo-ops to capture my utter sexyness...

Nah I kid, I'd probably take the grassroots approach, and therefore fail miserably.

Well, considering you've got to be a bit of a tool to run for president in the first place I suppose I would base my campaign on the simple strategy of anything that makes me look good and my opponent bad.

While I wouldn't make up any dirt or lie about my opponent, if my dirty rotten scoundrels dug up something bad and true I suppose I'd use it.

In it to win it folks, slinging mud is part of the job. Making mud is your opponents job.

As always just my opinion of course.
