Obama’s targeting of demonized groups has been narrowing over time, something documented here since the 2008 campaign.

Remember when the Top 5% were the target? Phew, that’s so 2008.

Then the Top 2%.  Phew, that’s so 2009.

Then the Top 1%.  Phew, that’s so 2010.

Then Wall Street.  Phew, that’s so 2011.

No, old Eagle Eye...

You go to war with the Mitt you have.

That’s the view of John Hawkins, co-founder of NotMittRomney.com, in a post at his blog Right Wing News:

At this late date, at a minimum, I’d still prefer Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry, Tim Pawlenty, Rich Santorum, Jon Huntsman, and anybody who came out of...

From reader Wayne:

I saw this in a parking lot in Minnetonka, Minnesota. Not certain if you’ve seen it before since it’s four years old. I bet it was funny back in 2008 but my thinking is that today, ‘our only hope’ sounds far better than ‘hope and change.

Richard Lugar’s time in the Senate may be up.

A variety of groups are working to defeat Lugar.  The NRA (which gives Lugar an “F” rating), the Club for Growth, and Freedom Works are working to help Richard Mourdock overcome Lugar’s big money advantage.

Notice how Lugar is hitting back with ads attacking Mourdock personally,...
