Barack Obama needs to issue a rule book for exactly what criticism opponents are allowed to make.
Rule 1 Don't criticize family no matter who they are or what they do.
Although his wife Michelle is an active member of his campaign and a virulent critic of other candidates, she must not be made an issue in the election. "The GOP, should I be the nominee, can say whatever they want to say about me, my track record," Obama said. "If they think that they're going to try to make Michelle an issue in this campaign, they should be careful because that I find unacceptable, the notion that you start attacking my wife or my family." To criticize Michelle is not part of the normal political fray, but a violation of the sanctity of family. Michelle Obama has immunity from condemnation and free reign to denigrate the country and Obama's opponents.
