Businessman Says He Lost Hundreds of Customers After Attacks by Obama Campaign
Obama's enemies list is working
Businessman Frank Vandersloot, the CEO of Melaleuca, has been targeted by the Obama campaign after donating money to Mitt Romney's presidential campaign. "Three weeks ago, an Obama campaign website, 'Keeping GOP Honest,' took the extraordinary step of publicly naming and assailing eight private citizens backing Mr. Romney," Kim Strassel of the Wall Street Journal reported.
Titled 'Behind the curtain: a brief history of Romney's donors,' the post accused the eight of being 'wealthy individuals with less-than-reputable records.' Mr. VanderSloot was one of the eight, smeared particularly as being 'litigious, combative and a bitter foe of the gay rights movement.'"
The attacks are working. Vandersloot revealed in an interview on Fox News that his business practice is being hurt by the attacks from the Obama team.
"Those people that I know well weren't affected by this [attack]," said Vandersloot. "But for people who didn't know me, who are members of our business or customers, and they were reading this, then we got a barrage of phone calls of people cancelling their customer memberships with us."

I'm one of those people who is so upset about Mitt Romney's repeated flip-flops on abortion, homosexuality, and related issues that I frankly don't know what I'm going to do this fall. I voted for Santorum in Missouri (Gingrich wasn't on the ballot) and then after he dropped out before our district and state conventions that selected the actual delegates, did what I could quietly behind the scenes to support Gingrich.
What I was trying to say, but apparently didn't say very well, is that Obama is so extreme that he's managing to make Romney look good by comparison. I can only guess what Obama thinks he can achieve by taking radical and extreme steps like this which could have the effect of driving moderate voters into Romney's camp while at the same time making more militant conservatives like me wonder if “Anybody but Obama” really is the best way to vote since Obama is so horrible.
Does that make any more sense?
If I recall it happened during “The Summer of Recovery,” shortly after we heard about “Green Shoots!”
It may have been on Drudge; all I’m sure of is that I was in Iraq at the time.
And no, that is not “seered” into my memory. ;-P
