Obama vies. Romney cries.

This is just priceless. Crying to the media, Eric Fehrnstrom whines about Obama losing his credibility for saying mean things about Mitt. He's apparently hoping this contrived catch phrase will scare Team Obama into submission:
"I don't think a world champion limbo dancer could get any lower than the Obama campaign right now," he added.
Meanwhile, the Mittster whimpers about false ads being used against him:
"You know, in the past, when people pointed out that something was inaccurate, why, campaigns pulled the ad,” Romney said on Bill Bennett's radio show. “They were embarrassed. Today, they just blast ahead. You know, the various fact-checkers look at some of these charges in the Obama ads and they say that they’re wrong, and inaccurate, and yet he just keeps on running them.”
This from the candidate who has been running O'Keefe style chopshopped videos from day one and bragged about it. As his man said in excusing their gross mendacity after the first ad was rated "pants on fire":
"We want to engage the president," Romney spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom told Slate. "We look at him as our rival. It's all deliberate; it was all very intentional."
Yeah, it's all fun and games until your rival fights back. But not surprising they're wailing like two years old lost in the supermarket. Fehrnstrom is just a big a bully as his boss and bullies, at heart, are crybabies and cowards.

Pathetic. Especially since the "liberal" media is more than willing to run cover for them. After months of barely suppressing a yawn while dutifully transcribing every bullshit lie Rmoney and the GOPers have tossed out over the last four freaking years, suddenly our media watchdogs are all excited about the veracity of Obama's ads. The Hill informs us:
But the severe nature of the super-PAC ad means that it is unlikely Obama will be able to avoid questions about whether it should be pulled.
Severe? Sure it's emo, it makes implications, but they didn't actually lie while Rmoney ads do so brazenly. And the Hill fails to mention the ad hasn't even actually aired in a paid market. The whole buzz has been built by the mass media hysteria over a preview only shown on the internet. Because: Horserace. Fun. Easy to report. As the kids used to say, this is why we can't have nice things.
