President Obama has opened a new front in his re-election ad hominem campaign. Now, through his chief campaign strategist, David Axelrod, he’s accusing those who disagree with him of being criminals. This is a continuation of the Obama effort to draw attention away from those failed policies behind the curtain, and it demonstrates both his own moral bankruptcy and his inability to defend his policies on their merits or results.
What Obama is saying now, using Axelrod’s mouth:
We’re also going to be prepared, and I want to be clear, to respond to the attacks that we expect to continue from—not just from the Romney campaign but from the Karl [Rove] and Koch brothers contract killers over there in SuperPAC land, who are going to continue to pound away on behalf of Governor Romney[.]
