The attacks against Barack ObamaBarack ObamaTrump considers naming Yellen or Cohn to lead the Fed West Wing to empty out for August construction Ex-CIA chief: Trump’s Boy Scout speech felt like ‘third world authoritarian's youth rally’ MORE continue to reverberate around the blogosphere Tuesday morning.


The Weekly Standard's Michael Goldfarb writes that it's been a bad week for the Democratic frontrunner, who has stumbled by making the "bitter" comment and is now seeing his poll numbers fall in Pennsylvania. Goldfarb suggests that Obama is suffering from overexposure, as he's running more television ads than his opponents. Clinton supporter Jeralyn at Talk Left finds that Obama was the one who attacked Clinton at the Philadelphia Jefferson-Jackson Dinner. Clinton, meanwhile, talked more about her own policies, an approach that Jeralyn found more effective. And Victor Davis Hanson at The Corner likens the presidential race to the one in 1952, when a war hero beat the "thinking-man's candidate."


Pushing back against Obama's critics, Arianna Huffington argues that John McCainJohn McCainOvernight Defense: House passes Russia sanctions deal | McCain returns to Senate | Watchdog opens criminal probe into M camo mistake Tough road ahead for McConnell on ObamaCare Overnight Healthcare: Senate votes to begin ObamaCare repeal debate | McCain returns to vote | GOP floats scaled-down healthcare bill MORE can now go on vacation since Clinton is doing his bidding. Daily Kos's DHinMI takes issue with the suggestion by Clinton, the multi-millionaire wife of an ex-president, that Obama is "elitist" and is like former Democratic nominees Al GoreAl GoreOvernight Energy: Exxon sues feds over M fine | Deputy Interior pick advances | Oil concerns hold up Russia sanctions push Gore: Progressive ideas 'gaining ground' among Democrats Gore: Trump prompting 'biggest upsurge' of climate activism ever MORE and Sen. John KerryJohn KerrySenators who have felt McCain's wrath talk of their respect for him Dems see huge field emerging to take on Trump Budowsky: Dems need council of war MORE (D-Mass.).


But it's not just McCain and Clinton attacking Obama. MissLaura, another Kos blogger, finds Netroots nemesis Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) telling a reporter that he sometimes finds Obama "far to the left" of "mainstream America." And Jonathan Singer at MyDD notes Rep. Geoff Davis's (R-Ky.) botched remark in which he referred to Obama as a "boy."


Shining a light on both parties' rhetoric in the election, Time's Michael Scherer takes issue with Republicans and Democrats for resorting to "truthiness" in their attacks instead of sticking to the truth, something that many expected campaigns would do in the age of Internet fact-checking.
