Organizing For Action Too unorganized to secure its own domain name.
As God is my witness, I was trying to be nice about Obama for America / Organizing For America / Organizing For Action / Oafs [Flatulating] Around / whatever else it is that they’re calling themselves these days – anyway, I was trying to be nice about the fact that the latest iteration of the group was having trouble getting itself up and running, or | Read More »
Ever hear of the digger wasp?
Fascinating critters, if admittedly an excellent source for nightmare fuel: Wasps of the genus Sphex (commonly known as digger wasps) are cosmopolitan predators of the family Sphecidae that sting and paralyze prey insects. There are over 130 known digger wasp species. In preparation for egg laying, they construct a protected “nest” (some species dig nests in the ground, while others use pre-existing holes) and then | 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Patrick Gaspard, is selling an artist’s rendition of the American flag—only the stars representing the 50 states have been replaced by the Obama ‘O’ | Read More »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 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.

The June Presidential fundraising situation.
On July 20th USA Today reported how the two Presidential campaigns are doing in the fundraising wars. The results were sufficiently interesting that I thought that it might be worthwhile to break them down: below is a chart of how the Democrats (Obama for America, the Democratic National Committee, and the Obama Victory Fund) matched up against the Republicans (Romney for President, the Republican National | Read More »
Ex-SEIU & Current DNC Boss On ObamaCare Ruling: “It’s Constitutional. B*tches.”
Though the grand master of community organizing, Saul Alinsky, may be dead, Alinsky’s disciples like Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Patrick Gaspard are powerful positions and they are plentiful. However, even though their titles may have changed (e.g., Community Organizer to President of the United States), as the head of the Barack Obama’s re-election campaign machine, one might think that Patrick Gaspard would at least | 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 »
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 »
The Smart Girls ‘Get It.’ How About Giving Them A Hand by Getting Involved?
There are a number of RedState contributors who are involved with Smart Girl Politics who could have posted this, but it seemed apropos to post this as a way of saying ‘thanks’ to SGP for taking the lead in starting a National Voter Registration Drive. In an e-mail sent out on Thursday, SGP outlined the goals: Year after year, polls have shown that Conservatives outnumber Liberals | Read More »
TIME, Marshall Ganz, Barack Obama, and 2012.
(Fair warning: while the original H/T is via RCP, there are a lot of links to Left-publications and sites in this post. This was essentially unavoidable) It was the funniest thing: I was flipping through this Michael Scherer article on the resumption of the Obama 2012 campaign (short version: “Getting re-elected is hard!” Particularly when the Democrats have to run on an actual record, instead | Read More »
President Obama’s Biggest Mistake
The Silvered, Fork-tongued One skates through electoral mayhem with the grace of Johnny Weir, but this time, he falls and fails badly. It will come back to haunt him. I refer to President Obama siding with the public sector unions across the country while the Governors, both Republican and Democrat, try to balance state budgets and ask the unions to make less-aggressive concessions than private | Read More »
WEAC Publishes Home Addresses of Wisconsin Legislators
The Wisconsin Education Association Council (WEAC) has stepped up their protest efforts in Madison, WI in an attempt to stop Governor Scott Walker’s efforts to close his state’s projected $3.6 Billion budget shortfall over the next two years. Gov Walker has proposed that public employee unions pay a larger portion of their health benefits & pension plans as well as limiting their collective bargaining rights | Read More »
Democrats start clearing out OfA deadwood.
Well, that didn’t take long. I mean, when I wrote this post indicating that Tim Kaine’s retention as DNC chair meant that the Democratic leadership had decided to concentrate solely on the President’s re-election*, I did not expect that I would receive some sort of confirmation of this within minutes. But, thanks to Doug Heye, I see this report that the DNC is laying off… | Read More »
