Collusion between Obama for America and Priorities USA on ‘their’ lying Soptic ads.
The Story So Far: two days ago, the Obama administration – using the fig-leaf/cutout of Super PAC Priorities USA – accused Mitt Romney of being a murderer because a company that Romney used to own closed down a steel mill (several years after Romney left that company) and that meant that the wife of the husband who lost his job at that steel mill (one | Read More »

Obama for America stiffing Durham, NH for… $30,000. Wait, WHAT?
The very short version: President Barack Obama is scheduled to make a campaign speech on Monday, in the town of Durham, NH. This will cost the town an estimated sixteen to thirty thousand dollars in additional overtime for cops and fire officials and whatnot. The town is taking the position that while they’d be happy to eat the cost for a Presidential visit, a campaign | Read More »
The RNC …cuts and pastes OfA’s Anna Wintour ad.
You know how people would joke that it was going to be incredibly easy for the RNC to do campaign ads this election season, because they’d write themselves? That in fact the GOP would just have to show Obama and the Democrats being… Obama and the Democrats? That we might not even have to do more than cut and paste? Yeah. As God is my | Read More »
Election 2012: The long, slow retreat of Obama for America.
It’s funny, really. Somebody like Mark Halperin sees this: Barack Obama’s decision to base his re-election campaign outside of Washington seems to be working pretty darn well. The campaign’s massive, high-rise headquarters in Chicago’s Loop achieves a fine balance between 2008’s hip-casual dorm room (there’s a Ping-Pong table and cheeky homemade signage) and 2012’s systematized Death Star (there are more employees than I have ever | Read More »
A Primer for the 3Q Obama for America (OfA) numbers.
Well, the 3rd quarter is over, which means that the set of speculation over various and sundry people’s fundraising totals may now kick into high gear. Probably the most anticipated numbers will be coming from Obama for America (OfA), given their haul last time – and their brags this time. The Politico has started off with an eye-grabbing headline – “Obama 3Q haul: $55M or | Read More »
Obama’s bad fundraising quarter.
Yes, I can read. I can count and use a spreadsheet, too. That’s why I’m saying it was a bad quarter. Executive summary: Obama for America’s (OfA) reported fundraising total for the second quarter is significantly less than what it needed to be in order to hit OfA’s stated ultimate fundraising goals for 2012 – as in, one half to one-third of what they need. | Read More »
Obama campaign site hacked.
I would like to note for the record that there is not yet any indication that any kind of personal information, including credit card information, was stolen from the Obama for America (OfA) campaign website during the period when it was insecure. Preliminary accounts indicate that the hack was limited to a redirect of mobile applications to a list of general ‘anti-government criticisms.’ Nonetheless, computer | Read More »
Breaking: Yosi Sergant fired in NEA payola scandal.
Another win for Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government. Jake Tapper has the details: Embattled former National Endowment for the Arts communications director Yosi Sergant is out of a job. Late this afternoon, the NEA released a short statement saying, “This afternoon Yosi Sergant submitted his resignation from the National Endowment for the Arts. His resignation has been accepted and is effective immediately.” The agency provided no | Read More »
