Democrats Freaking Out That Right Is Interested in Wright

Not just Reverend Wright, but this stunning new revelation that a close friend of Obama's -- and Michelle's benefactor in Chicago -- offered Wright $150,000 to remain silent in 2008.

Obviously this is newsworthy and relevant.

Which you can guess from the coordinated freak-out.

A Super-Pac is proposing a $10 million ad campaign highlighting the relationship between Obama and Wright.

So All The President's Men are trying to pressure Romney to disown the attack and stop it.

“Stunning! Will Mitt stand up, as [Sen.] John McCain did? Or allow the purveyors of slime to operate on his behalf?” claimed a 5.42 a.m. tweet from David Axelrod, the senior strategic at Obama’s campaign headquarters in Chicago.

...

The proposed advertising is a “hateful campaign being planned by GOP super PACs,” claimed Bill Burton, who runs a Democratic “super PAC” political action committee, dubbed Priorities USA Action, that is itself designed to run negative ads against Gov. Mitt Romney.

Burton’s tweet came at 5.58 a.m. — some 16 minutes after the alert from Axelrod, who has worked in Chicago politics for decades.

At 9.05 a.m., Brad Woodhouse, the spokesman for the Democratic National Committee, joined the hue and cry. “Unbelievable @MittRomney can’t do more on this Ricketts slime story than say he hasn’t read the story,” he said in reaction to a Washington Post report that Romney declined to comment.

At 9.32 a.m., Woodhouse followed up with another tweet, saying “If @MittRomney can’t clearly denounce the type of scum bag tactics planned by his allies as outlined by the NYT he’s not fit to lead.”
