Dare to criticize The One? Think twice. Here’s a montage of three men who have felt the wrath of the left when they have criticized Obama’s policies … and ironically enough … all three are Obama supporters. It has left them scratching their heads … but it shouldn’t.
Even CNN was surprised when it happened to them. Remember? Why does this surprise them? During the campaign whenever anyone dared speak out on the right, David Freddoso for one, were attacked viciously … but then … I guess we are used to it.
Update: Think the attacks are coming uncoordinated from the left? Think again. Ed Morrissey has a great post on the attack machine at the White House and how David Axelrod gave Operation Rush the go.
He also helps decide which fights to pick and which ones to avoid, making him a leading voice in setting the political tone in Washington. The recent back-and-forth with Rush Limbaugh, for example, was explicitly authorized by Axelrod, who told aides that it was not a moment to sit quietly after Limbaugh said he hoped that Obama would “fail.”
But the best part of the post is Ed Morrissey analysis of the White House crowd. Make sure you click through to read … toward the end.
