Obama's vitriol

The Politico has noticed a troublesome trend: Obama's attacks are becoming increasingly personal. For example:
Mitch McConnell is in bed with Wall Street “movers and shakers” — and is fronting “cynical and deceptive” arguments on their behalf.

John Boehner is a health care Chicken Little to be mocked for predicting Armageddon if the Democrats’ reform bill passed.

Sarah Palin can be ignored on arms control because she’s “not exactly an expert on nuclear issues.”

And Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh are just a “troublesome” twosome spreading “vitriol.”
Obama substitution of vitriol in place of rational argument is reflected by his supporters. FreedomWorks published a hate-message left on its answering machine by a spokesman for Geico insurance. After Geico fired the spokesman, many Obama supporters have called the FreedomWorks number to voice their own vitriol:
