The Obama campaign complains that we got a key fact wrong in our June 29 article, “Obama’s ‘Outsourcer’ Overreach.” (http://factcheck.org/2012/06/obamas-outsourcer-overreach/) We strongly disagree. We find the Obama campaign’s evidence to be weak or non-existent, and contrary to statements Romney has made on official disclosure forms under pain of federal prosecution.

It all stemmed from this article: http://factcheck.org/2012/06/obamas-outsourcer-overreach/

Maybe I missed it, but there's nothing in there about Obama bullying factcheck...

Forgot to put this link in: http://factcheck.org/2012/07/factcheck-to-obama-camp-your-complaint-is-all-wet/

Read through it and you will see the Obama campaign went after Factcheck.org and tried to get them to change their article.

Ummm, maybe I'm stupid, but I read that as, "The Obama campaign sent us a letter saying we were wrong. They's stupid and here's why..."

I see that factcheck is correct, albeit quite self-righteous about the whole thing, but I still fail to see how writing a letter is "bullying". I suppose the case could be made that sending the letter to other organizations as well was bullying, but that's weak at best.
