I thought this headline at the Politico was more funny than pathetic, as is the strategy it describes: Obama Plan: Destroy Romney
Rrrrooooaaarrrr! Must! Destroy! Rom! Ney!
Supposedly, Democrats are experiencing pangs of conscience because they will be asked to "swift boat" Mitt Romney a la John Kerry ca. 2004. Are these the same pangs of conscience they experience when they label Tea Partiers as "terrorists?" (and do they know something about Mitt Romney's Viet Nam experience that we don't know?)
If there's one thing we've learned since 2008 it's that Obama and his people are not the moderates they claimed to be in the campaign, but rather hard leftists who are also complete a**holes. Of course they'll try to "destroy" Romney, if he isn't destroyed by his fellow Republicans first. And if it's not Romney then they'll work to destroy Pawlenty, or Perry, or whomever. It doesn't matter. They can only win through destruction.
