-- -- about segment tonight there is no question a presidential campaign will be largely negative and Mitt Romney will be attacked pretty much 24/7.
The picture that he was painting of an America -- restoring in America I kept thinking what you wanna go back to a time when.
Women couldn't vote blacks couldn't -- we didn't have I mean it just didn't sound like this was the America that we all know.
Golf course governor running us doesn't want blacks women to vote of course that's part of his platform.
Joining us now from Washington Fox News political analyst -- -- them.
So it it me is it is it reached critical mass in April I mean are we there are already -- this is so insane.
The people are just gonna laugh about it.
Well -- -- they'll laugh about it.
Negative campaigns can work and we're getting a taste of it right now I think Romney's strategy should be -- -- that negativity.
Just go for it and point out go back to -- and point -- -- it's his side of scurrilous this and hypocrisy.
Look at -- mean that Democrats have put out from top to bottom Republicans.
Romney is a war on women concocted idea.
-- on immigrants would be heard from that woman -- on blacks and it's also class warfare in the world in the middle class.
You know comforting the rich and making sure they don't pay their.
Fair share of the hypocrisy here of course.
Is -- Barack Obama shot to the international consciousness.
By giving a speech in which he said he would unite.
Red America and the blue America we're not Black America one America we United States of America.
He's running the Democrats are -- the most divisive campaign.
On the ethnicity.
And class and -- -- I mean it's going to be -- -- campaign event received by things I would say I I would say -- -- children and check the plumbing because you can have to -- several times it.
It Bible if you're -- running how do you do that -- -- a few ways.
You can do it the factor weigh in here you know we did it last night.
With Bernie go over you take the absurdity of what.
That woman said.
And you who say look.
Yes that's right I wanna take votes away from women and -- how insane is this and here's why they're saying it you can do it directly straight up.
But that empowers the people who were making the scurrilous charges and actually got to watch it there or you can have your surrogates do with I mean.
How do you think Romney should handle it.
Well look you could have surrogates -- Romney do it surrogates of course a preferable if you are going negative.
But if you're defending yourself -- -- Romney can stand up and say look at what they're throwing him.
Do you really think I don't want women to -- and I'm an African Americans to vote.
And what you then you segue immediately to why would -- president.
Running after returns -- all these things why would the parties say all these things.
Imply -- -- because they have nothing to run that's a good obamacare he won't even mention the stimulus the word doesn't exist.
And a floor I can't defend their record -- they have to make up stuff.
About me and I think that's probably -- way the Romney campaign will -- but he they open themselves up for hypocrisy charges to the Romney people do.
Because of the way they went negative against -- Foreman Gingrich in -- primary which they did they went.
Particularly in Florida they just went -- boom boom boom -- So -- roughly -- -- a little hard to take the high ground is a non.
No I don't think so I think there are two kinds of negative campaigning.
There's ad hominem -- you Q so many of aiding women worrying on women.
Not -- African American to show up at the polls you know favoring.
That being against the middle class which are absurdities.
And then there's campaigning.
On facts on the record a lot of the negative campaigning against Gingrich was based on things he actually says ended.
And I think there is enough on Obama for things he promised and the things he hasn't done.
There's things he said that aren't true.
The -- misguided dreams about cars running on -- Dispute claims that you know oil drilling has increased.
He's distortions of the facts I think other things you can go after.
You can point out that the facts unemployment.
The -- some of the longest -- over 8% unemployment since the Second World War slowest recovery since the Second World War.
-- -- all of these facts you could violent if you can do that and stay with that.
I think you've had a winning formula even if Romney is the one who says it rather than a surrogate.
Right I think that the governor is gonna have to define the tone of his campaign is gonna have to do it fairly quickly -- be interesting to see because he's not a confrontational dot.
Romney's not a confrontational and neither is Obama then both of them are not confrontational so they'd rather have their -- do it.
And that's what's happening now the service to -- got to run thanks is all.
