Obama's Campaign of Anger Diminishes the Presidency

Well I think, if you look at the ads that have been described and the divisiveness based upon income, age, ethnicity and so forth, it's designed to bring a sense of enmity and jealously and anger. And this is not, in my view, what the American people want to see.

I know what I'm running for. I'm running to get America working again, to get good jobs for people with more take-home pay. And the President seems to be running just to hang on to power.

I think he'll do anything in his power to try and get reelected.

I want to get this country going again.

That's what brought me into the race. And hopefully we can have a debate about issues and of our differences on issues and contrast in that area. But these personal attacks, I think, are demeaning to the office of the White House and the comments yesterday by the Vice President, I think, just diminish the White House that much more.
