When you aspire to be the billion-dollar candidate, turning off the security features on your credit card operation just isn’t going to do the job.  You need big money donors to show you the money.

Among the many, many false narratives Barack Obama successfully perpetrated on the American public in 2008 with the help of a compliant and fawning media was the notion that Obama’s election was the result of “small donors” and a grassroots fundraising movement.

It all was part of the political mythology of Obama.

A column by James Taranto, ‘Death Panels’ Revisited (via Instapundit) points out:

Obama ran for office on opposition to the individual mandate, then made it the centerpiece of his signature legislative initiative. Perhaps this should have been “lie of the year.” At PolitiFact.com, it wasn’t even a runner-up.

The headline at The Washington Post, quite predictably, is that Sarah Palin’s poll numbers are terrible.

But the more important story for 2012 is that Barack Obama has lost 44% of the voters, and has weak core support (emphasis mine):
