Obama for America… taking out $15 million dollar loan… from BANK OF AMERICA?
This is a situation where the traditional “…Wait. WHAT?” seems a bit… understated: “Obama For America took out a $15 million loan from Bank of America last month, according to the campaign’s October monthly FEC report. The loan was incurred on September 4 and is due November 14, eight days after the election. OFA received an interest rate of 2.5% plus the current Libor rate.” Now, | Read More »
Obama’s Stripes For Sale: OFA Sells New American Flag For $35
For those who have commented about Barack Obama’s Narcissistic Personality Disorder and his god-like attributes, here is something that will only inflame their passions further. The Democratic National Committee’s Obama for America (OFA), run by the former SEIU boss and community organizer Patrick Gaspard, is selling an artist’s rendition of the American flag—only the stars representing the 50 states have been replaced by the Obama ‘O’ | Read More »
Obama for America’s quiet, nervous, base repair efforts.
The video is only horrible to Democratic base voters. Show it to an undecided swing voter, and there’s far too high a chance that he or she will pretty much agree with the sentiment. Which is something that Mitt Romney knows very well, which is why he smilingly encouraged the people who published the clip to publish the whole video. And it’s also something that Jim Messina knows very well; which is why he deliberately didn’t make the video easy to see and held off on the usual begging for five bucks that stereotypically infests Obama campaign ads. Bottom line: Obama for America is not going to use this incident to get more swing voters, although they certainly won’t mind if that happens (it won’t). What they’re apparently going to use this incident for is to shore up their own base.

Obama for America promises to fill stadium for Obama’s convention speech.
Alternative title: Main campaign team for an allegedly likeable President who won the general election with 53% of the popular vote and 365-173 in the Electoral College issues statement that the President will be able to fill a 74,000 seat stadium on the night of his convention speech. Which is, of course, far too long.

Why the Left freaked out about Paul Ryan telling the truth about the Janesville closing.
There was a GM plant in Janesville. Barack Obama did make a speech there in 2008. He did, in that speech, make those comments*. And the plant did not “last another year” – despite, I should note, the Obama administration’s bailout of GM that the administration is kind-of, sort-of touting as an ‘achievement.’ These are all true things; which has not kept the Left from screaming otherwise, to the point where the Obama campaign has officially (and in my opinion, unwisely) called Paul Ryan a liar.

Tech at Night: Google punished for hacking Safari Do Not Track, Microsoft gives Do Not Track a big boost
So the FTC is on a tear. Google is officially smacked for $22.5 million for hacking though Safari’s privacy protections to sell Safari users’ information to advertisers. Then Facebook got whacked for lying about what privacy protections it was giving users. Some are saying this is bad, as it’s expanding FTC power, but this is really a bad time to make that point. Google brought | Read More »

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 »
