Over the weekend, Chris Christie told Kentucky Republicans that Barack Obama was the "most ill-prepared person to assume the presidency in my lifetime."
"He has sat in the Oval Office and cared more about posing and preening and making partisan politics the rule of the day in Washington D.C. than he's cared about progress."
And in the Battle To Be the VP Bulldog, Marco Rubio also leveled a "most" charge this weekend at a fundraiser in South Carolina.
“The man who today occupies the White House and is running for president is a very different person.
We have not seen such a divisive figure in modern American history as we have over the last three and a half years.”
As the Veepstakes heat to even higher levels, expect the rhetoric to ratchet up into a steady stream of attacks anchored by one word: "Most"
As in -- Obama is the "most polarizing", "most anti-business," "most weak", "most inexperienced" etc.,
It's all part of auditioning for the part of Veep -- one that historically demands a sharp tongue to cut the opposing nominee down to size .
