Obama speech in one bumper sticker

Posted by

Any speech on domestic policy. It’s a one size fits all condensed version.  All the other stuff is just fluff. Found on yet another car in Ithaca not too far from my house with multiple anti-Obama stickers. This vehicle was on the same street as the vehicle with the Pocket Platform, so must be…

Reader Poll – Will Bill Clinton have Obama’s back?

Posted by
9/4/2012 at 8:57pm
Bill Clinton is giving the keynote address Wednesday night at the DNC. Apparently Clinton has refused to submit his speech text for review. What’s your guess, full throttled support for The One, throw The One under the bus, or something in between.  Admittedly it’s hard to know with Clinton, since he may use…

Timed just right to coincide with the kick off of the DNC convention, Nickelodeon finally released a response this evening to the lewd comments on their star Jason Biggs’s twitter feed, an account which had been actively promoted by the network late last week. The statement, which they tweeted from the…

Evolution of HuffPo electoral counter shows trend against Obama

Posted by
9/4/2012 at 4:13pm
Even the Huffington Post has to admit, although they would never come out and say it, that Barack Obama’s reelection prospects are not moving in the right direction. I’ve been watching the electoral map the Huffington Post has for the last few months. If you’re able to make it past all the…

Thursday is “we beg you to take a free bus to Obama’s speech” day

As I wrote on Sunday, Democrats are already offering free tickets to Bank of America stadium to see President Obama formally accept the Democratic nomination for President on Thursday, and close out the Democratic National Convention. Now, the Associated Press (h/t Fox News) has confirmed that the free tickets aren’t enough to…

I have enjoyed Larry Sabato’s coverage of elections both past and present, and his “Crystal Ball” reports are worth reading. So I mean no disrespect by this. It’s just that this tweet from Geoffrey Skelley of the Sabato Crystal Ball report seemed like it deserved an award for its obviousness: General consensus of Dem…

Wednesday night Elizabeth Warren will introduce Bill Clinton, the keynote speaker at the Democratic National Convention. Warren has claimed internet fame for her famous “no one got rich on his own” speech which was the foundation for Obama’s “you didn’t build that” speech.  Warren holds herself out as a fraud fighter, and…

I was tipped off about this by readers and on Twitter. Thanks to our friends at The Right Scoop for grabbing the clip for us. While it’s nice to receive recognition, we didn’t, um, you know, build that National Empty Chair Day on our own. Obama built it.

The Good Wow.  Just Wow at the reaction.  I never imagined that Empty Chair Day would sweep the nation, take over Twitter, make its way to the banner headline at Drudge and stories at The Wall Street Journal and elsewhere. (added) Michael Patrick Leahy has details on the press coverage and how…

UPDATE – No new submissions being accepted for now, the response was so overwhelming that there’s already a huge backlog. I’m breaking this down into multiple posts because the volume of submissions was so high – the enthusiasm has been overwhelming (that’s the word of the day) at several levels. Unfortunately, those who…

UPDATE – No new submissions being accepted for now, the response was so overwhelming that there’s already a huge backlog. Today is the impromptu National Empty Chair Day, which I covered on Saturday night when a reader alerted me to the idea.  At the time there were about a half dozen tweets from @YouTooCongress, but little…

Obama decides to nix “tiny crowd” strategy for Charlotte

Posted by
9/2/2012 at 12:16pm
President Obama is really hoping he is as successful at drawing a big crowd next week, as he has been at drawing small ones all year. Let’s not forget, by the campaign’s own admission, smaller gatherings are apparently preferable to bigger ones. Two weeks ago, an Obama campaign official had this to…

I was unfair in my analysis of Chris Matthews

Posted by
9/2/2012 at 10:04am
last night in the Saturday Night Card Game, in which I suggested that Matthews’ hyperbolic, non-stop accusations of Republican racism were a marketing ploy to secure himself a coveted media niche. With the benefit of some hindsight, I think I was too kind in my analysis. I think Matthews is looking to provoke a…
