Strassel: Trolling for Dirt on the President's List Strassel: Trolling for Dirt on the President's List - WSJ.com It's creepy when the president attacks private citizens in an attempt to get at Romney. Sure is a shame Obama doesn't have an impressive record to run on and has to sink this low to get votes. Remember how they were vicious to Joe the Plumber just because the guy asked a question and got Obama to admit he wanted to redistribute the wealth? Obama didn't want to disclose some of his donors and many were from overseas. Of course, the media didn't want to vet Obama, let alone anyone surrounding him.
