How low can a political campaign go?
Judging by what President Barack Obama recently called Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, there's no limit on the depths the Cutter Cartel can go to.
There was welfare queen Julia whose primary goals in life were to get the government to fund her choices from puberty to grave.
The Cutter Cartel launched ongoing personal attacks against Romney, falsely casting him as a murderer and felon.
Ironically, Romney isn’t the president who fractured relations with the Pakistani people with haphazard drone attacks that killed civilians.
Nor is Romney the president who did coke when he was young. Last time I looked, coke was a felony. The president who said he “inhaled…that was the point” routinely sends federal authorities to bust marijuana clinics in states where the drug has been legalized for medicinal purposes.
How hypocritical can our current president be?
Of late, Obama’s been on the stump taking Romney to task with accusations about positions on some issues despite the fact Obama could probably hold a world record for broken promises and changed positions.
The president who promised us better times but opted for an unrealistic, crony energy policy and the same monetary policy President George Bush followed has managed to help tank our incomes by more than $4,000 a year. Yesterday I paid more than $4 for a jar of mayonnaise. I stood in the grocery and marveled at that jar. Thanks for that, Mr. President.
Now The Weekly Standard said Obama called Romney “a bullshitter” in an interview with a pop culture tabloid.
That’s an LOL ad infinitum, considering Obama’s theatrical rhetoric compared to what he hasn’t accomplished. Obama is a master of garbing the emperor in new clothes.
Right now we have a president who has given so many versions about events that led to 4 dead Americans at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, I’d have to say Obama should get a Pulitzer for propaganda.
How sad is it when the president of the U.S. starts calling his opponent juvenile names?
“Bullshitter” isn’t even a creative pejorative.
Why would a campaign that has resources to hire intelligent people resort to acting like guttersnipes?
The Cutter Cartel* took Obama to the lowest level a president could stoop to.
Donkey of the Day goes to Obama, and it pains me to write that about my current president.
On second thought, maybe Obama got Romney mixed up with Democat vice president Joe Biden who has been on the stump rattling chains.
