Is Stephanie Cutter the Pit Bull of the Obama Campaign?

Question: Who is Stephanie Cutter? 

Answer: Apparently the Obama Campaign Pit Bull

We first heard of Stephanie Cutter when she implied Governor Romney committed a felony: “Either Mitt Romney, through his own words and his signature, was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the SEC, which is a felony, or, he was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the American people to avoid responsibility for some of the consequences of his investments.”

She is the Deputy Campaign Manager of the Obama-Biden Reelection Campaign

Stephanie graduated from Smith and Georgetown Law School.

She’s smart.

She worked for Senator Ted Kennedy, Senator Harry Reid, Senator John Kerry’s Presidential Campaign as the Communications Director, Tim Geithner, and Chief of Staff to Michelle Obama during the 2008 general election, before being appointed to the Obama Administration.

Stefanie Cutter is accomplished. She is highly respected in the upper echelons of the Democratic Party.

Her forte is communications.

She knows how to communicate. She's excelling with the detritus of the campaign.

The Vice Presidential candidate is traditionally the attack dog in presidential campaigns, as the presidential candidate soars about the muck. Vice President Biden is a good attack dog. He’s a born demagogue.

He’s not Stephanie Cutter though. She doesn’t gaffe.

The Obama campaign is different from tradition; everyone is slinging mud at Governor Romney. The attack is led by the President himself. Stephanie Cutter stands out, even more than her former boss, Senator Harry Reid. The Obama Campaign is attempting to prove that a totally negative campaign can win the White House.

Her remarks are startling. She can’t mean what she says? She can’t believe it, cam she?

Just the other day she said about the terrorist Benghazi killings: “Paul Ryan has politicized and made it a political circus all over this country of the terrible tragedy that happened in Libya.”

She continued about the Republican ticket: “The entire reason that this has become the, you know, political topic that it is because of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. It’s a big part of their stump speech, and it’s reckless and irresponsible what they’re doing.”

Her comment on Jim Lehrer, the moderator of the first debate: "I sometimes wondered if we even needed a moderator because we had Mitt Romney." 

Does she realize how outrageous her statements are, even in a campaign, which constantly plays false with the truth.

And then the answer is clear.

Stephanie Cutter is the pit bull of the Obama Campaign. Her role is to attack, attack, attack. Rather than being rebuked or sent to the woodshed, she’s sent out to hurl forth more absurd charges about the Governor and Congressman. She’s good at it, and it executes the playbook of the Obama campaign.

The more she becomes the issue, the more Fox News attacks her, the less that is said about the Obama economy. That’s the way David Axelrod and President Obama like it.

Hail to the Chief, but it’s still the economy stupid.
