The Obama Fear & Smear Machine

Question for The Huffington Post: Where are copies of Barack Obama's College Transcripts?

ARRA News Service - by Gary Bauer: There is a very revealing report in Politico today. Obama's reelection campaign is growing increasingly desperate. The hope is gone. And Obama is no longer the change candidate, but the status quo candidate. The 2012 campaign will be about fear and the politics of personal destruction.

The Obama team is assuming that former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney will be the eventual GOP nominee. Their campaign strategy is simple, and the story's headline says it all -- "Obama plan: Destroy Romney." Consider this excerpt: "Barack Obama's aides and advisers are preparing to center the president's reelection campaign on a ferocious personal assault on Mitt Romney's character and business background… The dramatic and unabashedly negative turn is the product of political reality. …And so the candidate who ran on 'hope' in 2008 has little choice four years later but to run a slashing, personal campaign…"
As I have warned for months, Obama's reelection campaign is going to be brutal and ugly. Everyone recognizes that America is at a crossroads. Difficult decisions will have to be made in the next few years, and the left is desperate to maintain power. It will do anything to reelect Obama.

It doesn't matter who the GOP nominates. Take that paragraph above, remove Romney's name and replace it with your favorite candidate. We are living through Jimmy Carter's second term. With that kind of a record to run on, Obama's only hope of reelection is to destroy his opponent with "ferocious personal assaults" in a "slashing campaign." Whoever wins the nomination will face a billion-dollar "fear and smear" machine. The left plays hardball.

While Obama gave rousing speeches and did his best to appear moderate, his political allies were slinging mud from the gutter. Remember the New York Times hit piece that falsely accused Sen. John McCain of having an affair with a lobbyist? Remember how the Tea Party movement was accused of racism for opposing ObamaCare and more recently of "financial terrorism"? We know how the media treated Sarah Palin, and we can see how they are savaging Michele Bachmann now.

Last week the Huffington Post published Rick Perry's college transcripts. Governor Perry isn't even a candidate yet, but somehow his transcripts became public information. Perhaps in the interest of journalist integrity and balance, the crack investigative team at the Huffington Post will find Obama's transcripts! I won't hold my breath.
