It's called ad hominem, a classic logical fallacy, and means name-calling, slander, carrying the argument "to the man" rather than debating the topic.

Like trying to affix the label "Muslim" a president who's getting things done. A recent headline asks if people will vote for a person they think is a non-Christian. Fiorella thinks that's a matter of putting the cart before the horse. The ones who think Obama is a Muslim are people who wouldn't vote for him in the first place.

People believe what they want to believe, then manufacture reasons to support their viewpoints.

This cracked me up! It’s about all the Hoot & Nanny going on about the President’s religion.
White House spokesman Bill Burton said, “The president is obviously a Christian. He prays everyday.”
I think Mr. Burton knows less than I do about religions other than Christian!
