Yesterday President Obama criticized his likely general election opponent Mitt Romney by linking Romney to the latest Republican budget plan. As the likelihood of Romney's GOP nomination increases, the attack lines are beginning to be unveiled.

For a look ahead at what we can expect in the general election, we're joined by Todd Zwillich, The Takeaway's Washington correspondent.

@listener -

How does his rejected budget make Obama responsible for the state of the economy? I'd say nuking the banking industry is much more relevant. Your opinion - as usual - is based on bias and prejudice.

Are you paid to run to different sites and spread your lies and mistrust? You ought to be.

"So if the economy is not the President's weak point..."
Huh !?!?
If the media keep saying it enough it will make it true? Is this how a false narrative is born?

The Obama budget was rejected 97-0 in the US Senate last year and rejected 414-0 in the Congress this year with no Democrat support. His massively expensive and mendacious "trojan horse" of Obamacare will probably be judged unconstitutional unless this administration can pressure the US Supreme Court in yet another trampling of the US Constitution.

Yep, no weakness there. Oh, what a tangled web the media weaves...
