Just like in 2008, the Obama campaign is supposed to be a sharp, unstoppable, well oiled machine that is guaranteed to carry him to his reelection. But there have been some glaring missteps…
A few weeks ago the Obama Camp disabled credit card verification on its donation webpage, inviting campaign finance fraud.
Obama has skirted the the laws of propriety and decency so severely with his constant campaigning at taxpayer expense, even liberals are grousing about it, and RNC lawyers are investigating. His appearance on the Jimmie Fallon Show the other night, (where he continued in his pitiful mission to regain “his cool”), was a possible violation of campaign finance laws.
We’ve seen the Obama camp use diversionary tactics like attacking Ann Romney for being a stay at home mom, and Mitt for the way he traveled with the family dog 30 years ago…
And just when you thought Obama’s reelection campaign could not sink any lower, and get any more desperate - this happens:

Newsbusters’, Noel Sheppard asks, “Does the White House REALLY want to associate itself with a man that has said or done the following in the past twelve months?”:

Is this REALLY the kind of person you want doing fact-checks for your campaign?
If your name is Barack Obama, the answer apparently is “Yes.”
They are desperate and flailing, folks.
