Obama Campaign Shifts Into Extreme Attack Mode

With its candidate having been swamped in the debate by an aggressive and articulate Gov. Mitt Romney, the Obama campaign is switching fully into attack mode, moving beyond earlier assaults on Romney’s business record and wealth toward a new drive to destroy his character.

Casting completely aside the Obama 2008 brand of a hopeful unifier, Obama’s operatives Thursday dived straight the jugular, working on multiple fronts to brand Romney a liar. The campaign, Obama aides made clear, would henceforth be conducted exclusively Chicago style.

In a vicious and personal assault rarely conducted at the highest level of U.S. politics, White House senior adviser David Plouffe repeatedly told reporters aboard Air Force One that Romney was “dishonest.” With the president of the United States in a cabin just a few steps away, his top adviser pushed out the new campaign theme that the man who had bested him in the debate Wednesday night is an untrustworthy scoundrel.

Generally presidential campaigns leave such personal attacks to surrogates, at least preserving the appearance that presidential candidates are above such things

Obama campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki opened Plouffe’s remarks by airing for reporters the new Obama campaign ad, “Trust,” which claims that Romney is lying about his tax plan and can’t be trusted to be president.

On a separate front, top campaign adviser David Axelrod convened a phone call with reporters telling them that the “question” for them “is really one of character and whether or not a candidacy that’s so fundamentally rooted in hiding the truth and the facts from the American people and deception is the basis of trust on which you assign the presidency to a person.”

Axelrod announced that this would be the new theme of the Obama campaign. “That is what we are going to focus on moving forward,” he said.

  1. ….” a new drive to destroy his character “….are you kidding me ?
    The Lying Stephanie Cutter has already tried Felon , Tax Cheat and Murderer , it failed , Americans overwhelmingly reject thug politics , so where do they go from here……more thug campaigning will cost him the election.

  2. Here are some provocative words to describe President NObama and his entire campaign: Bunch of lying, disgusting, gutter dwellers, Chicago drug dealing criminals, Traitorous, Treasonous scumbags, deceatful, manipulative, brainwashed a-holes, terrorist enemies of the state, reprehensible, guilty ot destroying the Constitution, morally bankrupt.

    The difference between 2008 and 2012: NOBODY believes you anymore maggots!

    • I wasn’t fooled. Some of us did our homework before 2008, I don’t understand why people don’t do that ALL the time. They should. It matters. Find out who these people are. How they voted. Who they hang with. Then maybe we won’t end up in a mess like this again. Come on people, vote with your head, not emotions. Get the facts. Get the truth. Don’t be fooled by hope & change bs. Get real. I couldn’t beleive what I was seeing in 2008. What was this spell? Were people so excited to elect the first black prez they let themselves be taken away by emotion? How stupid is that? And he’s 1/2 white, not even completely black. I can’t beleive how wishy washy people are. Back and forth, voting demo then repub. Can’t make up their minds. Don’t you have a set of principals you live by? Do they change day by day? That’s crazy. Fleeting. Stupid. You can’t go back and forth. You have to stand for something. Decide what that is. There is right and wrong. You do know the difference. We all do.

  3. Does this mean the end is coming to “tokenism” in America? ….and perhaps watching the “shuckin’ and jivin’ ” by a man in an important position.

  4. People are forgetting about his Social Security Number. It didnt pass E-Verify, and the number belongs to someone else who is passed away. wow. Oh, i forgot about his college records in lockdown. How did he get into the Oval Office with a fake SSN for starters? We have ourselves to blame, maybe, and we have ourselves to change it!

    • Waiting for Romney to call him out on the college transcripts. He has to. That’s why Obummer can’t say a word about Harry “My Vagina is Bruised” Reid’s ridiculous lies about Romney’s tax returns.

  5. Talk about dishonesty and hiding the truth, Obama is the master liar and truth hider. We know nothing about his student life his actual birth place or whether he and his wife really believe in the American way of life. All you campaign aides are the joke of Chicago Politics where the objective is to destroy the reputation of the opposing candidate who become a threat to your grasping for power and wealth. Well, Chicago Style Robots, your tactics will not work this time around as it did for Obama in Chicago a long time ago. Reality check: Romney already won the election Wednesday night. All America knows that. Even the old Chicago Ward Healers know that. Ask them. You rats should leave the sinking ship while you still have time to get a good job through your still operating Chicago Style Politics and Obama’s incompetence.

    • An accurate and well-documented portrayal of what Obama really is and how many Socialists/Communists he has appointed in his bloated Government is included in ‘The Manchurian President’ by Aaron Klein. We have a frightening situation in this Country, and if we don’t replace Obama now, all may be lost. As it is, I’m afraid of what Obama and Company will do in November and December.

  6. Isn’t an attack on character the last resort for those without substance of their own? Reminds me of how conflicts play out in Kindergarten – and this from the POTUS! Beyond sad. Pathetic, really.

  7. What is absolutely stunning, is that after all the lies from this administration, they want to call Romney out. The “I won’t sign a bill until it has been posted on-line…” didn’t even make it to his FIRST bill. The Fast and Furious debacle, the whole Benghazi failure. I wonder how many people actually believed him when he said his obamacare reduced the cost of healthcare for families, or that he reduced taxes by $2,500 per family? Those are lies: Pot, this is Kettle, Over!

  8. Too much Choom and golf, and so little work. What a shiftless poseur our Dear Leader is. Dump this fool in November, for the sake of us all.

  9. How desperate can they get??? Mitt stated the facts, and was accurate about Obama’s failings. He didn’t hit below the belt. I hope the Dem’s do try this personal attack mode, it will push so many people away from them cuz it’ll be so obvious they are really desperate. It was a classic case of a businessman/governor vs. a pothead who had his college and law school records sealed because he probably barely graduated. If Obama had done better than Romney, we’d be saying so . I think O should run on his record. And try not to lie.

  10. it will be exciting at the next debate when the pretender in chief tries to turn back the clock and redebate the first debate to try and not look like such an inept twit, and Romney has moved on to calling him out on Libya lies, treasonous action as commander in chief, crony money shifting, criminal behavior abounding in all staff and surrogates, and finally his lies about his own past and thoughts about America.

  11. So Axelnimrod really expects us to vote for Obama based on his “unquestionable honesty?” Give me a break. There is a reason why Obama has been dubbed the “liar in chief,” and for them to attack Romney in this way only shows how desperate his campaign is. Whenever an incumbent attacks the character of the challenger, you know things are going badly for the incumbent.

  12. It sure looks like sour grapes. Obama gets beat badly in the first presidential debate and then he comes out after the debate whining that his opponent wasn’t truthful. Why didn’t he articulate this during the debate? Isn’t that what debates are about?

    • When you’re so accustomed to lying, that’s about all you can do. And the manipulation of the September job numbers is not a big surprise. Obama and Company will do absolutely anything to get re-elected.

        • Who called him a socialist or a communist? Mark Levin believes president Kardashian is a Marxist and I agree. The term statist can be used to describe the whole cabal of Marxists, socialists, communists, Trotskyites, Stalinists, and deviant miscreants who make up his administration.

          You do know they’ve given up on the white working class voters and are campaigning for the moron vote, right?

  13. And in the tradition of Chicago-style attack politics, the attacks were not to Mr Romney’s face. Instead the attacks were played out like the ongoing minstrel show we’re endured for 4 years. Let’s see how the professor tries to defend himself at the next debate.Or if he will even look at Mr Romney while he is being brought down from on high.

  14. Let us see how low they can go. Now that almost nobody believes the press, and fewer and fewer believe the President, this hollow, random hostility is apparently all they have left. Promote your successes and great plans for the future, Mr President. Oh, wait, there aren’t any to crow about. That personal deconstruction mode on your opponent is a dead end. You are in qicksand and don’t know it.

  15. Unfortunately for the Democratic Party, the dishonesty of pure corruption, aka Chicago style politics, has sunk to as low as it can go, and the only way dems win this election is to literally steal this election. Opposition voters must get down and dirty too and vote in overwhelming droves besides, if there is any chance at all of ending the dems power hold. Then the hard part is to make certain no democrat gets a vote for any public office at any level for at least the next 50-100 years! It’s payback time for what they have done to this country.

  16. Wrong answer dimwits.

    We want to hear about Obama’s economic plans in very specific detail. Not grand and lofty visions.

    Don’t attack the only guy in the race with a real economic plan – tell us about your own, Mr. Obama. Finally, tell about your own plan.

    Can you just do that?

  17. If this pathetic vile tatic doesn’t backfire and garner Romney votes then we
    are in deep s–t and if Obama is allowed 4 more years America will cease to

  18. Over 67 million tuned in for the first debate…they were looking for a reason to vote for Mr. Romney and they got it – the contrast between the two candidates was stark and undeniable.

    Let ’em panic in Chicago and attack away…as Bush 43 once said, “Bring it on!”



    Around 1979 Obama started college at Occidental in California . He is very open about his two years at Occidental, he tried all kinds of drugs and was wasting his time but, even though he had a brilliant mind, did not apply himself to his studies.
    “Barry” (that was the name he used all his life) during this time had two roommates, Muhammad Hasan Chandoo and Wahid Hamid, both from Pakistan . During the summer of 1981, after his second year in college, he made a “round the world” trip. Stopping to see his mother in Indonesia , next Hyderabad in India , three weeks in Karachi , Pakistan where he stayed with his roommate’s family, then off to Africa to visit his father’s family.

    My question – Where did he get the money for this trip? Nether I, nor any one of my children would have had money for a trip like this when they were in college. When he came back he started school at Columbia University in New York . It is at this time he wants everyone to call him Barack – not Barry. Do you know what the tuition is at Columbia ?It’s not cheap to say the least.

    My girls asked me; where did he get money for tuition? Student Loans? Maybe it’s none of my business?

    After Columbia, he went to Chicago to work as a Community Organizer for $12,000. a year.
    Why Chicago? Why not New York? He was already living in New York. By “chance” he met Antoin “Tony” Rezko, born in Aleppo Syria, and a real estate developer in Chicago . Rezko has been convicted of fraud and bribery several times in the past and in 2011. Rezko, was named “Entrepreneur of the Decade” by the Arab-American Business and Professional Association”. About two years later, Obama entered Harvard Law School. Do you have any idea what tuition is for Harvard Law School ?

    Where did he get the money for Law School ? More student loans? His family has no money that’s for sure.

    After Law school, he went back to Chicago. Rezko offered him a job, which he turned down. But, he did take a job with Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland. Guess what I discovered? They represented “Rezar” which is Rezko’s firm.

    Rezko was one of Obama’s first major financial contributors when he ran for office in Chicago. In 2003, Rezko threw an early fundraiser for Obama which Chicago Tribune reporter David Mendelland claims was instrumental in providing Obama with “seed money” for his U.S. Senate race.

    In 2005, Obama purchased a new home in Kenwood District of Chicago for $1.65 million (less than asking price). With ALL those Student Loans – Where did he get the money for this property? On the same day Rezko’s wife, Rita, purchased the adjoining empty lot for full price. The London Times reported that Nadhmi Auchi, an Iraqi-born Billionaire loaned Rezko $3.5 million three weeks before Obama’s new home was purchased. Obama met Nadhmi Auchi many times with Rezko.

    Now, we have Obama running for President. Valerie Jarrett was Michele Obama’s boss. She is now Obama’s chief advisor and he does not make any major decisions without talking to her first. Where was Jarrett born? Ready for this? Shiraz, Iran! Am I going nuts or is there a pattern here?

    On May 10, 2008, The Times reported, Robert Malley advisor to Obama was “sacked” after the press found out he was having regular contacts with “Hamas”, which controls Gaza and is connected with Iran. This past week, buried in the back part of the papers, Iraqi newspapers reported that during Obama’s visit to Iraq , he asked their leaders to do nothing about the war until after he is elected, and he will “Take care of things”. What the heck does that mean?

    Oh, and by the way, remember the college roommates that were born in Pakistan? They are in charge of all those “small” Internet campaign contribution for Obama. Where is that money coming from? The poor and middle class in this country? Or could it be from the Middle East ?

    And the final bit of news. On September 7, 2009, The Washington Times posted a verbal slip that was made on “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos. Obama on talking about his religion said, “My Muslim faith”. When questioned, “he made a mistake”. Some mistake, eh?

    All of the above information I researched on line. If you would like to check it – Wikipedia, encyclopedia, Barack Obama; Tony Rezko; Valerie Jarrett: Daily Times – Obama visited Pakistan in 1981; The Washington Times – September 7, 2008; The Times May 10, 2008.

    • This is all very true. Anyone can research some of the data through reading ‘The Manchurian President’ by Aaron Klein. Add it’s info to the above, and you have a right to be afraid, very afraid. This election will tell whether we want America to be America or a disaster and Socialist/Communist dictated society. Think about it. We get destroyed and the Middle East continues to expand violently. Is that what we want in this World?

  20. Obama and Axelrod lecturing anyone about hiding the truth is a hoot!!!
    These guys have spent a fortune to hide and color (no pun intended) Obama’s background and past associations.
    They are banking upon voter ignorance, prejudices, envy and gullibility….

  21. Hmmm… Since O had his a$$ handed to him by Romney in the 1st debate, and they literally have no record to stand on for the past 4 years, they shift gears and continue what they know best how to do – conduct personal attacks on the opponent. When you can’t HONESTLY promote your accomplishments and have to make up stories (lie) about your opponent. When you have to rely on inuendo and half-truths to make you look good, you don’t deserve to be in office. I fully understand in a debate there will be mis-statements or possibly getting the numbers wrong. And I accept those as mistakes. That’s not the Chicago politics referenced here. Obama is literally going after Romney with lies and half-truths to make himself look good. Pretty pathetic!

  22. That is how it is done in Chicago politics, it’s just that the rest of the country has not caught on to the tricks they use.

    Here’s the plan from Chicago, The President win’s the election with Rahm Emanuel’s help then he and the Democrats nominate Rahm in 2016 and we keep the Chicago gang in control of the country. That is what I see happening it is no stopping these guys and their plan to destroy this country.

  23. I think there is a major flaw to this strategy that the mouth-breathers that are running the “Dear Leaders” campaign are overlooking:
    Mr. Romney doesn’t LOOK like a liar!!
    I mean, let’s face it, for a large portion of the electorate, this is nothing more than a beauty contest. Obama won in 2008 because he was a young, energetic “rock star”. He was the personification of the “Cult of Personality”. And now?
    Go back and look at footage of the debate. He looks tired. Haggard. Gray. No flame, no fire. He was there, but looked like he wanted to be elsewhere.
    Now compare that to Mr. Romney. Mitt looked bright, energetic, interested in what his opponent was saying, eager to engage. Most importantly, he looked PRESIDENTIAL. The Obamites are trying desperately to portray him as a lying cretin-did he in any way, shape, or form appear that way to you? No, he didn’t. And he didn’t look like a lying S.O.B. to any of the other 67M who watched the debate.
    Remember, this is a beauty contest to a LOT of people, and Mr. Romney won round one. (I think I’ll skip the swimsuit competition….).

  24. Obama is mad and disparate. Now we will see the angry Black Man. Good luck with that Barry. You lost and you will get demolished in the next two debates. Start packing your bags and arrange that flyte back to Hawaii or were ever it is you came from. Socialism is not welcome here.

  25. Oh yeah, character assassination, historically, that is the Obama way.
    Does he really believe the independents such as myself cannot see through his sleazy ways.

    But then again, with such a dismal record on everything he has touched, what else can be expected. He’s done, and he knows it.

    At this point, I believe they are worried about the future of subordinate cabinet members being held accountable for their actions under this crooked regime.

  26. This is a Socialist/Communist tactic, showing desperation and a common front to continue the takeover of the United States. Remember, most Obama appointments in Government are confirmed Socialists/Communists. This man is dangerous, and we have to get rid of him before he and his cohorts turn the US into a Third World Nation with a weak defense and no civil liberties. This is serious, folks!

  27. Maybe Axledouch should let the President know that he doesn’t have time to go play golf during the final month. Now that would be a new theme!

  28. If these crooked bastages get away with this and Obambo gets back in, more fool us. I pity the USA should this happen. We’re done for. I continue to hope we send this crowd of thugs packing!!

  29. David Axelrod’s remark that the “question” for them “is really one of character and whether or not a candidacy that’s so fundamentally rooted in hiding the truth and the facts from the American people and deception is the basis of trust on which you assign the presidency to a person.” is right on the mark! That is why people will vote for Mitt Romney.

  30. Good luck, shithead. Obama was unmasked and eviscerated in front of the world. A spoiled, non-achieving little pussy. Bad policies, bad leadership, ZERO honesty… “I WILL CUT THE DEFICIT IN HALF MY FIRST TERM.” Thanks Barry. Nice job, asshole.

  31. It’s going to be hard to find more mud to sling when the Prez’s opponent has already been described as a murderer, a felon, a tax cheat and a greedy, selfish business mogul.

    Today, MrO will visit more college venues where the audience is already on site and their world views are not mature or sophisticated. He’ll make sacastic jokes, the students will laugh because they think the POTUS is just another kind of late-night comic sent to entertain them.

    All the while, his top supporters will try their darndest to paint MrR as a “dishonest” and vile person and the MSM will parrot that on every site.

    The news is that the unemployment rate has dropped significantly with the addition of 115,000 jobs added to the job market, een thought 350,000 first-timers applied for unemployment benefits this week and there are still an estimated 25, 000,000 out of work or underemployed.
    This manipulation of facts is what is dishonest.

  32. Does anyone expect anything less from the Obama campaign or his “political advisors”, his attack dogs (main stream media), and Obama himself. Obama has gone to “attack” mode with innuendos and lies about opponents in every campaign, even in 2008 but to a lesser degree because McCain handed Obama the election by staying “above the fray”. David Plouffe, Jen Psaki, and David Axelrod are at their best when they are using deceit and misinformation to attack their “man’s” opponents, ask the Clintons because they experienced it firsthand. Ask yourself when you hear them speaking or see them on TV “would you buy a used car form any of them”; not! My hope is that Romney hits back just as hard and as often as this team of hatchet men (women) using the Resko files, the use of multiple social security numbers by Obama, the back room deals for Obamacare (Louisiana Purchase, and Nelson’s Nebraska kickback, etc.), the cronyism with the “Green” companies that cost taxpayers over a billion and counting. What Romney cannot do is take it like McCain did. Make Obama and his henchmen prove their claims!

  33. Well ,then Romney will have to start flinging mud at the usurper.Like,are you still a choomer Mr President ?Don’t you think that all of the heavy smoking ,and double hitting,and sucking smoke off the roof of the car on the Kona gold joints may have caused permanent brain damage? Many Americans believe you are not a native born American ,where were you really ,honestly born? If you say Hawaii,why does the Harvard record describe you as being born in kenya? Is it true you can no longer practice law in Illinois? And why is that? There is so much material Romney could pummel Soetero with.

  34. I keep hearing from the regime or from the media (same thing, no?) that that wasn’t the real Mitt Romney on stage in Denver or that Governor Romney was being dishonest about who he is, etc. People were genuinely surprised to see that guy on stage, not because of Governor Romney was being dishonest, but who they saw, who he is, is starkly different from the person portrayed by the government, by the Obama campaign and more importantly, the media.

    For many months now, the government and its media agents have been defining Mitt Romney for people who rely on them for information. Now, I hope for those people they can realize what I came to terms with over a decade ago (and a bit late, in my opinion). The government lies. The media lies. The people who we’re “supposed” to depend on to “protect” us from, or at least be critical of, the government ARE shills for the government (although not for every politician who holds office, obviously).

    So now the wonderfully intelligent Independents are left in awe by what they saw. Good, the ought to be. The curtain was drawn. That was the REAL Mitt Romney and that was the real Barrack Obama. I admit that I was even pleasantly surprised by the Governors boldness, because I didn’t even know him that well. I like what I saw, and I hope the America that I know and love will hire this man now that they’ve seen the Real McCoy, regardless of the President and the media attempting to tell us otherwise.
