Oops? President Barack Obama's re-election campaign washed its hands Wednesday of an independent group's vicious (and misleading) ad effectively blaming Mitt Romney for the death of a laid-off steelworker's wife from cancer. Campaign officials flatly denied any knowledge of the facts in the case—but it turns out the widower told the same story on an Obama campaign conference call in mid-May.

The MSM talking heads will give both a pass because they agree with the message of the ad, they just wish that it had been delivered more artfully.

Yup, that's exactly what they're doing. I read one such article yesterday. It started with a soft chastisement about the ad, kind of like "Obama made an oopsie, hee hee hee". Then they spent the remaining 3/4 of the article listing out the actual content of the ad and quoting Obama's people as they went off-topic and slammed Romney for his allegedly misleading ads. I think they only gave one quote from Romney's people and it was fairly mild. It's so amazingly biased. The comments lit up, though, and I find it encouraging that such a large percentage were on Romney's side, despite this being on a liberal media site.

The presidential playbook generally calls for a successful candidate to swing to the middle when they are running unopposed for their party’s nomination.

But as we enter perhaps the final months of the Obama administration, it’s becoming increasingly difficult for anyone to make an appeal to the center, if indeed a center even exists in American politics anymore.

Obama has destroyed the political center in this country, and for that we can be thankful. 

Because Obama’s policies have exposed the basic problem with the bipartisan approach favored by establishment Republicans and so-called Blue Dog Democrats.

Both of those centrist...
