Attacking a private citizen like this is out of bounds and, if you ask me, immature.
But did you say the same thing when the Republicans did it?
Mark McKinnon, a top adviser in President George W. Bush's campaigns, acknowledged the value of picking a divisive opponent. "We used a similar strategy by making Michael Moore the face of the Democratic Party," he said of the documentary filmmaker. "That's why we gave him credentials to cover the 2004 convention and then turned the spotlight on him."
This isn't just a liberal strategy. Selective memory is an interesting thing...

I thought exactly that when I read the whole thing. This guy has said he wants our elected president to fail and we have little recourse in speaking to him publicly about how we feel about what he said.

I don't condone that either, but I see the strategy in this instance though. It was during the election. Still wrong though.
Where is the strategy involving Rush? Elections arent for 3 years, unless President Obama is starting the longest Presidnetial campaign in the history of campaigns.
