That's the question the latest web ad from the Republican National Committee is asking--"What do you do when you don't have a record to run on?"

In a statement, RNC chair Reince Priebus says, "President Obama has no record to run on so he's out on the campaign trail resorting to the very tactics he once campaigned against. ... It's sad to see the candidate of 'Hope and Change' become the president of 'Hype and Blame.'

"Barack Obama once promised to hold himself accountable, but now he's making excuses and blaming others for his failures. The 'great uniter' has resorted to dividing the American people against each other by creating animosity and scorn to win reelection. He doesn't have a record to run on, so he's painting his opponent as someone people should run from."
