Team Romney’s first ad using Obama’s Ohio speech.
The first of many from the Romney campaign: I myself counted enough raw footage from today’s Ohio speech to make a dozen Republican attack ads. I don’t know who the heck told the President that it was a good idea to make a speech that tacitly conceded failure for the last four years, and half-demanded, half-begged for another four years in office. Particularly since in | Read More »
1994′s Axelron versus 2012′s Axelrod!
As you probably read yesterday or today, video has surfaced from 1994 showing a David ‘Axelron’ (clearly the Nega-universe alternate conservative doppelganger of Obama henchman David Axelrod*) commenting disapprovingly about a President who… airily played golf in the middle of a sour economic patch while telling people that things were going swimmingly. I just couldn’t resist cutting this one down to size and highlighting some | Read More »
Tech at Night: Retransmission Consent, Spectrum, Reid making threats on Cybersecurity
When Jim DeMint and Steve Scalise first started talking about reforming the regulated relationship between broadcasters and cable companies, oh the fits that were thrown. Even a certain conservative group jumped out in front complaining. But look: these regulations are worth big bucks to the side they favor, and the negotiation deadlocks they produce don’t help the public, they only force everyone to deal with | Read More »

Wall Street teaches causality to Barack Obama.
It would seem that President Obama seems to have a bit of a problem with the concept of “cause and effect.” This is hardly surprising – the man is essentially a glorified political science major* – but it is, upon reflection, a bit awkward. Seeing as the man will still be president for about seven months, and thus technically responsible for the country in that | Read More »
David Limbaugh’s The Great Destroyer
Our sister company within Eagle Publishing, Inc. has published a new book that, even were Regnery not the publisher I’d be seeking out. That’s because it’s author is David Limbaugh, who continues to be one of the most informative and easy to read authors of current events within conservatism. David’s new book is The Great Destroyer and I have been on a mission for two | Read More »

Perpetual Fundraiser Obama Claims ‘Presidential Responsibilities’ Prevented Him from Helping in WI Recall
Yesterday morning, President Obama made time on his busy schedule to give brief interviews to reporters from several “swing” states. The markets hit included Roanoke, VA; Jacksonville, FL; Greenville, SC; Sioux City, IA; Green Bay, WI; Colorado Springs, CO; Reno, NV; and Fresno, CA (note: if all of these states are actually in play, then Obama is obviously in a bigger world of hurt than | Read More »
CBC: Calling Obama “Cool” is now Racist
Promoted from diaries. I have to admit: I’ve seen some pretty ridiculous uses of the race card in the past four or so years, but this one might just take the cake. We’ve seen people using negative terms like “socialists” and criticizing Obama’s policies accused of being racist in some crypto way. However, this is entirely new to me. Calling him “cool” is now racist…wait, | Read More »

The Democrats’ Lost Wisconsin Lesson for Obama.
From Hot Air Headlines comes this entertaining Wisconsin post-mortem, and the first paragraph will tell you why I used that adjective: A controversial incumbent hangs on and retains his job despite fierce opposition in a bad economy. Sounds like a hopeful scenario for the Obama campaign, right? Instead it was Republican Scott Walker’s impressive victory in Wisconsin. If President Obama is smart—and he is nothing | Read More »
The Amateur’s Nominee
Brett McGurk is another example of just what an amateur Barack Obama is. Today comes news that the Commerce Secretary committed two hit and run crashes after suffering “seizures.” There is no word on what caused the seizures and Johnny Walker was unavailable for comment. (Initial reports were that drugs and alcohol were not involved) Now, there is Brett McGurk. You should read this if | Read More »
Deconstructing this week’s Democratic economic agitprop.
(Via Hot Air) Michael Tomasky, now that he is finished swallowing his gum from watching the Lightworker flail about like… someone who went from undistinguished state Senator to President of the United States in four short years, all the while learning not a darn thing… would like to offer the President a counter-narrative. The story, in a nutshell, is this: we inherited a total disaster, | Read More »
Romney’s ‘Fine?’ response to Obama’s ‘the private sector is doing fine’ press conference
The Romney campaign has released a powerful new web video, “Fine?.” The new video responds to President Obama’s out of touch “the private sector is doing fine” comment with snippets of middle class workers talking about their experiences struggling with the realities of the Obama economy: “We’ve seen layoffs, cutbacks.” “When it’s all said and done I’m making $200 a month.” “I’ve been looking for | Read More »
Obama really does believe ‘the private sector is doing fine’
President Obama is trying to fight back against the hue and cry raised over his saying the private sector is doing fine. Saying the private sector is doing fine may have been a blunder, but it wasn’t a gaffe. It may have been a revelation to some, to others it was a confirmation. Mitt Romney quickly pounced on Obama’s tone deaf statement calling it an | Read More »
“Typos happen to Obama, too.” – And then they got ignored.
I know that David Weigel [excuse me: one of Dave Weigel's ...co-bloggers?] wants to pat himself on the back for sneaking in a mild Romney slam graciously excusing Mitt Romney for making some typos by bringing up a couple of lesser typos made by Barack Obama’s staff. Unfortunately, if we’re going to be discussing that sort of thing then we should be talking about the | Read More »
Romney/RNC outraises Obama/DNC in May.
If you remember the 2008 elections, you might remember a somewhat cruel, if clever, tactic that the Obama campaign would use: their habit of deliberately delaying sometimes announcing just how much money they raised in a given month. You see, it was a truism that, if you chose to wait until the last minute to file the fundraising report, it meant that the numbers were | Read More »
