For a campaign that has also launched its new slogan "Forward" to jump back to 2008 is weird to say the least.
Even odder is the nature of the attack on Palin. The utter condescension in the "brushing off' clip of Obama is pathetic and will only serve to rile up Palin supporters encouraging them to vote against Obama when they may have decided to stay at home rather than vote for Romney.
This does go to show that Palin lives rent free in the Dem's heads, including obviously President Obama's who, to the bewilderment of even Michelle Obama, chose to attack Palin at the White House Press Corps dinner. It also shows the depths of their hate for her and her ability to get under their skins to their detriment as the lash out at what to them is a two minute hate Goldstein figure.
How can someone who they deem as "irrelevant and a has been" still command so much of their attention? The answer is they still fear her potential to destroy them.
"A video to rev up the crowd included a virtual highlight reel of Obama as a candidate in 2008 and then as president. One moment showed a clip of former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, followed by a shot of Obama brushing something off of his shoulder. The crowd roared."
