From the Obama re-election campaign's new attack on the Republican frontrunners:
President Obama’s re-election campaign argues in a memo set to be released this morning that Texas Gov. Rick Perry and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney — the two frontrunners for the Republican nomination — have “embraced policies that the American people oppose” on Social Security and immigration.
For example, most Americans, by 63-27, opposed raising the debt ceiling this summer. Yet not only did Mr. Obama want it raised, he wanted it raised enough that it wouldn't need to be re-visited before the November 2012 elections.
And in the case of health care reform, the polls were roughly 55-35 against just at the time it was passed and signed - "against the will of the American people," as it were. And it continues to be unpopular.
There are, of course, other examples. But logical consistency has never been Mr. Obama's strong suit.
Ed Morrissey shows that even on Social Security and Immigration Mr. Obama is out of the mainstream himself.
