Dems assault on Romney's convention

If you just read headlines and ledes, this from The Hill might have you imagining tanks rolling up to the convention center and spewing out legions of SWAT teams to storm the doors.
Team Obama breaks precedent to try to spoil Romney’s convention in Tampa.

Bucking protocol, President Obama and the Democrats are planning a full-scale assault on Republicans next week during their convention.
And what is this egregious affront to civility that would engender such an alarming lede?
President Obama, Vice President Biden and leading congressional Democrats have all scheduled high-profile events next week to counter-program the Republican gathering in Tampa, Fla.

Even first lady Michelle Obama is in on the act, scheduling an appearance on the “David Letterman Show” smack in the middle of Romney's nominating bash.
Oh the horror. These "disrespectful" Democrats are going to keep campaigning instead of meekly going into hiding for four days? But that's not the worst of it. Just look at this atrocity.:
The most aggressive attack was left for Biden, who is heading behind enemy lines for campaign events in Tampa on Monday and Tuesday. Leading congressional Democrats, including Reps. James Clyburn (S.C.) and Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fla.), will be joining the vice president to help crash the party.
I'm pretty sure Joe won't be holding that fundraiser inside the convention hall. Meanwhile a battalion of Romney campaign buses are crisscrossing America, circling around Obama events, honking their horns and photobombing Democratic photo ops. Trying to remember when the protocol for that campaign tactic was originally set.

Repub chickenhawks sure love their war imagery don't they? I always picture Walter Mitty when I read crap like this.

Funny. I often think of Walter Mitty too when I read the fevered imaginings of wingnuts. You know 90% would shit their britches if they had to walk that macho talk.
