This article I'm referencing surmises that Obama and the Democrats are collecting Republican email addresses to barrage them with propaganda, anit-GOP candidate information, and the like. Classy. Just like raffling off dinner with the president and his wife. Who does he think he is, the mayor of Chicago!? Oh, wait- there aren't enough Republicans in Chicago to make it worth his while. I suppose it wouldn't be Obama if it didn't include class rivalry and/or partisanship!
In case you've never heard, Bush refused to strike back at the media or against their false allegations, because he considered it beneath the dignity of the office of the president of the United States. That alone remains the most probable factor behind his poor reputation when leaving office, but at least he had standards.
