” Strassel: The Silent Second-Term Agenda”

” President Obama has a reputation for talking, but not necessarily for saying much. He has
achieved new levels of vagueness this election season. Beyond repeating that he’s in favor of
making the “rich” pay for more government “investment,” he hasn’t offered a single new idea
for a second term. This is deliberate. “

“Why the Obama campaign is suddenly so worried .

” His campaign appearances are now about backpedaling and proclaiming his love for small
business. And the Democratic National Committee produced its own panicked memo, which vowed to “turn the page” on Mr. Romney’s “out of context . . . BS”—thereby
acknowledging that Chicago has lost control of the message. “

When can you recall a president stooping to this level of  character assassination of PRIVATE citizens ?

” Three weeks ago, an Obama campaign website, “Keeping GOP Honest,” took the extraordinary
step of publicly naming and assailing eight private citizens backing Mr. Romney. Titled
“Behind the curtain: a brief history of Romney’s donors,” the post accused the eight of being “wealthy individuals with less-than-reputable
records.”

“Less than reputable” according to who ? Tim “tax cheat ” Geitner ? Eric ” Fast and Furious” Holder ? Jeremiah ” God..mn America” Wright ? Tony ” Jail” Resko ?

  “About a week after that post, a man named Michael Wolf contacted the Bonneville County
Courthouse in Idaho Falls in search of court records regarding Mr. VanderSloot. ”
  
  ” Some digging revealed that Mr. Wolf was, until a few months ago, a law clerk on the Democratic
side of the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. He’s found new work. The ID
written out at the top of his faxes identified them as coming from “Glenn Simpson.” That’s
the name of a former Wall Street Journal reporter who in 2009 founded a D.C. company that performs private investigative work.”

We are back in Nixon territory with “enemies lists ” only this time undertaken by the champions of underhanded dirty dealing  , the “Chicago Mob ” . Ethical ? Ha . Open ? Yeah sure . Honest ? Give me a break . The nation has been transformed into a  Thugocracy .
