Breitbart.com: "Obama's overall goal isn't to stereotype Romney as Scrooge McDuck, his overall goal is -- by any means he can -- to win the "Devil You Know" campaign. And if that's your goal, one way to accomplish it is to keep Romney and his team forever on defense and explaining and smothered in distractions that never allow them to come up for oxygen and talk about a message. And it doesn’t matter how dirty or dishonest what your hurling is -- all that matters is keeping your opponent off-balance so he looks foolish."
Obama knows that he cannot run on his record. His only hope is to tear Romney down (with an assist from the legacy media).
