Bucking protocol, President Obama and the Democrats are planning a full-scale assault on Republicans next week during their convention.
Presidential candidates have traditionally kept a low profile during their opponent's nominating celebration, but Democrats are throwing those rules out the window in an attempt to spoil Mitt Romneys coronation as the GOP nominee.
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.
Political historians say the high stakes of this year's elections combined with the rise of todays 24/7 media culture have forced leaders on both sides of the aisle to get more aggressive.

And in other news the Republicans plan on retaliating by doing nothing during the democrat convention.
Wouldn’t surprise me to see Zero himself out there flinging molotov cocktails...
You don't have to be a classless jerk just because your opponent is being a classless jerk.
This just makes the Dems seem desperate.
Why am I not surprised?...This will all blow up big time in the whack lefts face. FUBO!
Just proves one thing and that is that the Democratic party is nothing but classless clowns.
Gutter trash the lot of them.
You are, unfortunately, probably spot on!
I think that people are just sick of this regime, and the only outlet available to them to do something about it is November 6th, and that's exactly what they will do...
I can just feel it..
Once a “Community Organizer”,ALWAYS a “Community Organizer”!I prefer the more accurate term:”Rabble Rouser”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Marxist "community organizer" and professor agitator, Saul Alinksy, whose theories helped young Barry Soetero (aka Barack Hussein Obama) to cut his eyeteeth in the jungle that is Cook County, Illinois, Democratic Party politics, put it well he gave full credit where credit was due:
Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history... the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom Lucifer.
If we are lucky, all the dems will get swept out to sea...
No-class is what no-class does.
Here’s what you do.. You send Chris Christie out there to Biden’s rally and extend a warm invitation to him to come to the convention so he can tell a national audience where the jobs are.
Well if the storm does hit anywhere close those anarchists will have a tough night in their tents ;-) God I wish I could see that! That would be true comedy:-)
Yep. Just like Occupty Wall Street - a bunch of freeloaders demanding even more free stuff.
