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.'
The Republican National Committee is releasing a new web ad today that contrasts Vice President Joe Biden's declaration last year that "the United States and Russia no longer have good reason not to trust one another" with news that Russia is arming Bashar al-Assad as he beats back protesters in Syria.

Via Real Clear Politics, Democratic party spokesman Brad Woodhouse makes a bizarre assertion in response to Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus comparing Obama to the captain of a wrecked Italian cruise ship:
When Barack Obama last ran for president, he didn’t have much of a paper trail. He’d only been a state senator and U.S. senator for a few years, and had done a pretty good job of keeping his head down. Obama had not published much and had hardly been quoted. Now, however, there’s a large trove of promises and statements, dating back four years (the first year running for president, and the last three since taking office).
CNN reports that Florida is likely to move up its Republican presidential primary to January 31:
Florida House Speaker Dean Cannon told CNN on Tuesday that a state commission exploring potential primary dates is likely to choose January 31 to hold the nominating contest.
If that happens, it would almost certainly force the traditional early states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada to leapfrog Florida and move their primaries and caucuses into early- to mid-January.
While the Democratic National Committee has decided to throw its support behind the pro-public sector union protesters in Wisconsin, the Republican National Committee is doing its part to get Democratic senators back to work.
