Marc Ambinder serves as the Obama campaign messenger of the day, with an uncritical account of what Team Obama supposedly believes as to the Republican field.

From some guy who knew Obama best, circa March 2008:

Transparency and accountability matter greatly to him; they are a defining feature of his proposals….

Expect transparency to be a central theme in any Obama administration, as a check on government and the private sector alike….

He seeks universal coverage not through unenforceable...

I missed the introductory video (below) shown just before Obama’s speech at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner last night, because the cable networks did not cut in until he began to speak.

The video was called to my attention by Ben Smith’s column, in which Smith made the following observations (emphasis mine):

Fairness ≠ Envy and Jealousy

The age of Obama is the age of envy and jealousy couched as fairness. 

As I have documented many times, Obama’s political strategy during and after the 2008 campaign has been to appeal to envy and jealousy directed towards the Top 2% or 5%, depending upon the speech.  Just recently, Obama mocked the...

Obama Is Temperamentally Unfit For Office

I’ve had a chance to read Obama’s budget speech, and have seen clips on television.

I was right in my anticipation that Obama would play the blame Bush game, and that he would demonize the “Top 2%,” and he did.  With gusto.

But even I could not have expected the coarse tone...

Alexander Burns at Politico argues that Wisconsin in 2011 is a template for what will happen nationally in 2012, a split electorate with a narrow margin of victory:

Wisconsin’s contested Supreme Court race has set in motion a drama that’s by now almost painfully familiar. It goes something like this: A hard-fought...

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.
