Behavior Unworthy of His Office

There's plenty that doesn't smell right about the Obama presidency -- the czars
, the lack of transparency
, the willingness to use taxpayer money for political ends
. But nothing -- nothing
-- is worse than this president's unprecedented penchant for using his bully pulpit to attack specific individuals (or small groups of individuals) whose only "sin" is that they disagree with him.
What President Obama is doing is an obvious attempt to chill (constitutionally protected) expressions of support for Romney -- so unworthy of his office as to be an abuse of it.
Such bullying is repugnant, and resorting to it shows the President to be temperamentally unfit to hold the highest, most powerful office in the land. Voters thought they were electing a statesman, and got an intemperate community organizer instead.
