Whether it's the benefits of rain from a dark cloud or that figurative silver lining, both the Republican National Committee and the Democratic National Committee sent emails to supporters Wednesday morning that touted findings from the same poll.

RNC mocks Obama's 'Debt-End Bus Tour'

(CNN) - The Republican National Committee offered up its take on President Obama's Midwest bus tour Monday with a three-pronged press offensive including a "Press Corps Briefing Book," a web ad, and radio spots that detail what they've termed "Obama's Debt-End Bus Tour."

The RNC describes the president's effort to engage in a public dialogue about job growth and the economy at town halls and economic forums as "a totally non-political taxpayer-funded administration event that just happens to criss-cross several battleground states critical to the president's re-election" in the Obama critique, which is disguised as a briefing book.

RNC to Obama: You're taking the country off a cliff

(CNN) - A new ad from the Republican National Committee Wednesday blames President Obama's "left turn after left turn" for the current state of the economy.

The 30-second spot will air nationally on cable television, notably in battleground states, throughout the month. It uses a crashing car metaphor to make the case for a Republican president in 2012.

GOP leaders restless about 2012 candidates, but ready to take on Obama

Dallas (CNN) – GOP leaders from around the country who gathered in Dallas this week for a meeting of the Republican National Committee view their field of 2012 presidential contenders as unsettled, unpredictable and perhaps a bit uninspiring.

But there was also consensus at the meeting that their eventual nominee won't have to worry about galvanizing Republican support in the general election, a dilemma the party faced in 2008 when the GOP was burdened by an unpopular president and a nominee, Arizona Sen. John McCain, who had a famously rocky relationship with conservatives.
