Charlotte Democratic convention’s appeal simply becoming more selective*.
It would appear that the Democratic party cannot afford a fourth day of festivities, to the point where they’re going to cancel their orignial kickoff event at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. But don’t worry: the ceremonial anointing of The One will still be taking place at the Bank of America Stadium. Hold on, let me repeat that, for the benefit of the six remaining progressives | Read More »
Debbie Wasserman Schultz for House Minority Leader?
I wasn’t going to say anything about this rumor from the Shark Tank that Debbie Wasserman Schultz was scheduled to get the boot in November for failing to lead the DNC to anything except humiliation, largely because Debbie Wasserman Schultz is a GREAT DNC chair… for us. I wanted to keep her at that job for just a bit longer; there are entire states that | Read More »
Romney/RNC almost catches up with Obama/DNC in April.
The New York Times reported this morning that the combined raised total for Romney and the RNC was $40.1 million in April, with Romney having $61.4 million in the bank: in comparison, Obama/the DNC raised $43.6 million. Barack Obama’s own cash on hand for April – it was $104.1 million at the end of March – and we probably won’t be told it until the | Read More »
The DNC seems to be sitting out the Wisconsin recall.
Alernate-alternate title: DOOM. You know, when I saw this secondhand whine from Wisconsin Democrats upset that the DNC apparently wasn’t prepared to throw half a million dollars at the general recall election, I assumed that this would be resolved. I mean, really: the Left has already thrown away tens of millions of dollars; what’s a bit more? Admittedly, not throwing utterly horrible money after bad | Read More »
Potemkin Federalism And The Modern Campaign Straddle
The president stressed that this is a personal position, and that he still supports the concept of states deciding the issue on their own. (HT: Yahoo News) I’m thinking President Obama regrets two of his decisions right about now. He wishes he wasn’t about to hold the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC and he’d rather have Opus The Penguin as a Veep right now | Read More »
Interesting: epithet-tossing Jewish liaison Dani Gilbert daughter of Obama bundlers.
Via Legal Insurrection comes this interesting story about DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her rather embarrassing Jewish liaison Dani Gilbert. As you may remember, Ms. Gilbert had some unfortunate comments surface from her Facebook page – essentially, stuff from 2006 where she used admittedly self-derogatory religious/cultural epithets. At the time, I wondered when exactly DWS had hired the young woman – just on the | Read More »
Obama throws… all non-Obama Democrats… under the fundraising bus.
I had not realized that things were this bad for the Obama administration: Democratic congressional leaders, including Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, have privately sought as much as $30 million combined from Obama for America and the Democratic National Committee — a replay of the financial help they received from Obama in 2008 and 2010. But that’s not going | Read More »
Using .Gov Domain & Obama’s Mother, DNC Propaganda Targets Women
A reader sent the following mailer (see below) from the Democratic National Committee targeting Florida’s female population. The DNC’s large, two-sided mailer reads like an Obama campaign piece (because it is one) and refers readers to a federal government website healthcare.gov. Interestingly, on one side of the mailer, the DNC tells the story of how Barack Obama was motivated to pass Obamacare by the passing of his | Read More »
The DNC, As Sly As A Foxx
The DNC national convention is going to Charlotte in 2012, and there is something fishy going on. To read about it, check out these articles by Ben Howe, and LaborUnionReport. Cross-Posted: TobyToons.com (Conservative Political Cartoons)
DNC Union Favoritism Forcing Furloughs Of Charlotte’s Non-Union Hotel Workers?
In February, when the Democratic National Committee chose Charlotte, North Carolina as the host city for its September 2012 convention, it left the door wide open for the Charlotte-area’s union-free workforce to be discriminated against in favor union workers. Although Charlotte’s Democrat Mayor, Anthony Foxx (who is facing GOP challenger Scott Stone in Tuesday’s election), has denied the allegation, it appears Foxx has been misleading | Read More »
Dems Dodge Questions On Discriminatory Union PLAs For DNC Convention
In February, when North Carolina was awarded the Democratic National Convention over forced-union states, we alerted you to the devil in the details of the DNC having its convention in a predominantly union-free state. At issue is something traditionally known as Project Labor Agreements that give work to unionized employers and, as well, discriminate against union-free workers. Now, that devil appears to be rearing its | Read More »
*UPDATE* Weiner Weekend Open Thread: DWS Calls for Weiner [D-NY] to Pull Out
Democratic National Committee Chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, has released the following statement [via CNN] calling for Rep. Anthony Weiner [D-NY] to resign in light of his recent moral and ethical challenges. “It is with great disappointment that I call on Representative Anthony Weiner to resign. The behavior he has exhibited is indefensible and Representative Weiner’s continued service in Congress is untenable. This sordid affair has become | Read More »

Debbie Downer’s bad first month as DNC Chair.
(Via Hot Air) The Politico is just now starting to realize just how big a boon DNC chair Debbie Downer (aka Debbie Wasserman Schultz) is… for the Republican Party: She’s accused Republicans of wanting to reinstate segregation and of waging a “war on women.” She has asserted, somewhat nonsensically, that the GOP wants to make illegal immigration — by definition against the law — “a | Read More »
RNC fundraising showing signs of life
The Republican National Committee announced Tuesday it had raised north of $7 million last month, though federal election reports indicate it remains buried in lingering debt from the 2010 election season. While fundraising figures have not yet been reported to campaign finance regulators, RNC staff said today its renewed efforts to court disaffected major donors was paying dividends — and rapidly reducing the $24 million | Read More »
New DNC chief needs refresher on Obama health care program
President Barack Obama on Tuesday tapped Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz to succeed former Virginia Governor Tim Kaine atop the Democratic National Committee after its members gather later this month. The Florida firebrand was an obvious choice for Obama, who faces a contentious re-election bid next year and counts Wasserman Schultz among his fiercest defenders. But the president’s new attack dog’s talking points don’t always jibe | Read More »
