Here's Peter Wehner with "Obama is the ultimate ad hominem President"
The president can hardly go a day without impugning the motivations of his opponents. They never have honest differences with the president. Instead they are suffering from an illness (“fever”), cowardice (afraid of what Rush Limbaugh might say about them), and lack of patriotism (caring about elections rather than future generations). Mr. Obama is the ultimate ad hominem president.This reflex to impugn those who would disagree with the One reached its disgusting apex during the gun control debate when Obama suggested that Republicans didn't want to give him "a win." Because it there couldn't be any other reason for their opposition, the bastards.
So on the endless campaign trail that is the Obama Administration, is it any wonder that a handful of like-minded acolytes would take the hint and seek to punish conservative groups? After all, those small-government types have hearts as black as coal. Obama said as much.
