Nope. “Fear and loathing” instead. I guess that’s what happens when you are an incumbent President of the United States, and 9% unemployment haunts the land while you try to get four more years out of the populace. But at the very least, it would be nice if Team Obama pretends not to be happy about the fact that it is going to run a scorched earth campaign that slimes and smears whomever the Republicans choose to be the nominee. Thus far in the political season, the President and his campaign seem positively gleeful about the prospect that gutter politics will be the order of the day.
