I just heard that question posed on TV. A list was read off about what right wingers say about Obama. Then actions of the "real" Obama was compared to the Republican's "fictional" list. The audience laughed and laughed. But I think it's a fair question. Can Republican's run against a "fictional character"? Even the two Republicans on the show, "Buddy Roemer" and "Matt Lewis" admitted Republicans give no credit to Obama for anything. Why would Americans trust Republicans who just lie and lie?
