We now have three  instances of three individual Politico writers digging up and publishing political oppo-research about the private lives of private citizens who don’t support Obama, and the motive behind these attacks can only be for two reasons:

2. To intimidate and frighten others who might consider supporting a candidate not named Obama.

So desperate is the media to Palace Guard for their Precious One that everyday Americans who dare ask Obama a question he flubsappear in a Romney campaign ad, or donate to a pro-Romney super PAC, are now considered fair game.
