Four years ago, the Obama campaign established a highly successful "fight the smears" web site which routinely misrepresented the facts and sometimes published outright lies. The falsehoods it presented regarding Mr. Obama's record on the Illinois Born Alive act, for example, have been well documented.
The president's re-election campaign has already established such a site for the 2012 campaign. But this time, it seems to be backfiring. The problem is that it makes POTUS look paranoid.
And that's not even taking into account the question of truthfulness of its denials and assertions.
