Obama for America: Go phone bank! …In the middle of the hurricane!
You have got to be kidding me.

Ohio’s unemployment rate paints a misleading picture of the state’s economy, an Opportunity Ohio report and separate Media Trackers analysis reveal. The unemployment rate reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) dropped from 10.6 percent in July 2009 to 7.2 percent in August 2012, but the change resulted from a shrinking labor force as opposed to strong job growth.Read More »
Barack Obama’s Presidential Campaign would like the children to sing to you. Relax and enjoy.
Mitt Romney may have nothing left to fear from his challenger, Barack Obama except fear itself. Barack Obama could run for reelection using all the wonderful things he’s done for America in his first term of office. He could fill us all to the inebriated brim with hope about his ambitious, progressive, forward-looking and unprecedented 2nd term agenda. Oh, wait…Nope, he’ll be scaremongering from here until we go to the polls.Read More »
Last week I wrote about the need to look beyond the headlines in order to have a more informed view on what is or is not going on with the domestic economy. Last Friday, we received the gross domestic product (GDP) figures for 3Q 2012 from Bureau of Economic Analysis, and once again the headline of 2% growth does not reflect what is really going | Read More »
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech are joined by Francis Cianfrocca to discuss third quarter GDP, what it may predict for October jobs numbers and what we can expect from the economy if Obama wins a second term.Read More »
Unless the name is ‘Adams,’ they rarely last beyond the third generation, and for good reason. Background: somebody pointed out to Mr. Kennedy the President’s drone operations in Yemen/Somalia, and asked whether Kennedy supported the idea that the House needs to reestablish some of its oversight into the issue. This is actually a thorny problem; and while Kennedy’s answer (he essentially blamed that awful partisan | Read More »
There’s no shortage of warnings about what the next four years could involve should President Obama win reelection whether it’s the continuation of Obamacare implementation or Supreme Court nominations. But it’s worth noting the sources of his contributions as well, not only from individuals but from corporations. Specifically which corporations and what the influence of those corporations might tell us about legislative priorities of a | Read More »
This is what Romney-Ryan thinks is important enough to mention in the last two weeks of the campaign. It is the latest email that I have received from the campaign. Stay safe, give to the Red Cross, and GET THOSE ROMNEY-RYAN SIGNS INSIDE! High winds will turn them into deathtraps! This is what Obama for America thinks is important enough to mention in the last | Read More »
Alan Abramowitz does not like Scott Rasmussen. Who is Alan Abramowitz, you ask? I have no idea either, but according to Google he is a professor of political science at Emory University in Georgia. Abramowitz published a piece at Huffington Post on Saturday that all but called Scott Rasmussen a partisan hack who has no clue what he’s doing. So what was Abramowitz’s proof? He | Read More »
Barack Obama is trying to do something no president has ever done: get re-elected without winning the national popular vote. If he were to somehow succeed at this, he would be the weakest elected president since Rutherford B. Hayes, and the lamest lame duck in American history. Since popular vote totals were first recorded in 1824, four presidents have been elected while losing the popular | Read More »
There are two things that I would like you to understand about this graphic from the latest WaPo/ABC tracking poll (the Sunday 49/48 Romney/Obama, if I understand it correctly): For those who can’t see the picture, the WaPo has been asking Republicans why they were going to vote for Romney. In July 2012 only 36% of respondents said that they were voting for Romney, while | Read More »
After many months of campaigning, Mitt Romney has finally taken the lead in polling for the election. But why has it taken so long for the American people to catch onto the Mittmentum? It begins with two key events: the Republican National Convention and the Presidential debates. And interestingly, Hurricane Sandy also shows us some interesting insights about how the mainstream media has dealt with | Read More »
The following was written by Collin Roth and is cross-posted from Media Trackers. Voters in Wisconsin are suddenly becoming more aware of the records of both U.S. Senate candidates, and this is just another example of how radically out of touch Tammy Baldwin is. Since 2001, Rep. Tammy Baldwin has co-sponsored legislation four times to create a federal Department of Peace and Nonviolence. Sponsored by | Read More »
MSNBC’s Mellisa Harris-Perry suggested on her show this morning that voters who are registered in multiple states should not be purged from voter registration rolls. She argued that the chances of voter fraud were negligible since it was highly unlikely that anyone would get on a plane and travel to another state in order to vote twice, or three times. Apparently, she forgot that most | Read More »

As the evidence leaks out is seems more and more clear that not only did the Obama White House know exactly what was transpiring on the ground in Benghazi, it had forces in place that could have prevented the deaths of at least some of the men who died there. Not only did it stand by and do nothing, it callously refused to send aid even though the doomed men were requesting it.
