President Barack Obama and his Democratic allies aren't waiting for Republican Mitt Romney to reveal his vice presidential choice. They're already trying to scuff up those considered by political insiders to be most likely to join the GOP ticket.

The president's campaign started swinging at the potential Republican running mates this week while urging home-state Democrats to chime in about the shortcomings that - as emails to donors and supporters put it - "Americans need to know."

Still waiting for the Obama campaign to run a positive ad on a verifiable claim on something good that Obama has done for the people in 3.5 years.. That the people actually wanted..

Desperation is setting in. They must be really behind on the internal polls.

The Obama campaign is certainly wasting a lot of ammo attacking people who won’t be on the ticket. “Spray & Pray” politics.

Pawlenty? They are really saying, “Please don’t throw me in that briar patch.”

Right, every republican is evil. Well, the liberals do believe that.

If they feel the need to turn the character assassins loose on a guy as bland as Tim Pawlenty, I'm inclined to agree.

I hope Republicans aren’t believing any of that garbage that the obama campaign and their PACs are running out of money.

The only VP candidates they would approve of are Reid, Pelosi, Schumer, Durbin, Kerry or Weiner.

I don't remember it ever getting this nasty this early. Romney don't even have the nomination yet.

Yes. Unprecedented. But then we're in the worst economy in living memory (since the Great Depression). Add to that that this is really Barak Obama's first real campaign. He had walkovers in the Illinois Senate, the US Senate and his first Presidential election. Yeah, he beat Hillary, but she was about as inept as McCain.

Obama's getting antsy because he thinks he should have this wrapped up already.

Several FReepers have convinced me that the Chicago political mob blackmailed the Clintons over Arkancides.

Mutually assured destruction.

Hillary was unable to use the vaunted Clinton private detective squad to ferret out the truth about Baraq's dubious past.

I would like to see West as well , but it isn’t going to happen . Ramney ( sic ) will pick somebody boring like Paw Paw Pawlenty . If he does , I may vote for Gary Johnson , assuming he gets on the ballot in NY .

He's been acting like he shouldn't have to campaign at all. Affirmative action at work....

It'll be very interesting to watch as the election grows closer. I am still hoping for a very public meltdown.

Someone on another post just reminded us of Pawlenty’s ineptitude during the Coleman-Franken election steal of 2009.
