Obama's Attack Machine

Despite the hoopla in Europe, or perhaps because of it as the unemployment numbers climb back home, the president's approval/disapproval index is at its narrowest yet. Rasmussen:
As the President meets with world leaders, most Americans believe the economy will be helped more by the decisions of U.S. business leaders to grow their own businesses than by the actions of world leaders on behalf of the global economy.
(Emphasis mine.) The partisan ID gap is narrowing as well.

My God. More thuggish behavior from the Obama attack machine. We saw this before the election in Chicago with the attempt to shut up Stanley Kurtz on Milt Rosenberg's WGN radio show. Once in office, they started demonizing individuals, egged on suburban bus tours by ACORN and SEIU thugs, attempted to kneecap rising Republican leader Eric Cantor--and attacked his wife with robocalls--and now threatens CEO's in the White House. Politico:
But President Barack Obama wasn’t in a mood to hear them out. He stopped the conversation, and offered a blunt reminder of the public’s reaction to such explanations. “Be careful how you make those statements, gentlemen. The public isn’t buying that.”

“My administration,” the president added, “is the only thing between you and the pitchforks.”
Charming? Chilling.
