President Barack Obama’s campaign attacks against House Minority Leader John Boehner and interest groups sympathetic to Republicans may be backfiring. Even Democrats are questioning the approach, The Hill reports.

obama, interest, groups,Obama’s offensive has included a challenge of American Crossroads and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, questioning whether they have received money from foreign sources. The groups strongly deny the allegations.

"I think attacking the outside money, and specifically attacking the Chamber, is of very limited value to the White House," says former Rep. Martin Frost, D-Texas, who once headed the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. "I don't think it makes much difference in the election."

One Democratic strategist says the attacks just don’t make sense. "That dog won't hunt," the strategist says. “In a different election year, this narrative and this messaging could work.” This is not that election year.”
