Remember Rebekah Erler, President Obama’s premiere “everywoman” success story from last night’s State of the Union address? The one whose family inspired the leader of the free world to stand up for the common man by…raising their taxes, or something?

As it turns out, Rebekah isn’t just an inspiration. She’s an operative.

Rebekah has been used before by the White House to tout its controversial fiscal policies. Last summer, President Obama spent a well-publicized day with her, taking in “real America” and picking up talking points about the excessively nice people up in Minnesota.

Though all of this, the White House failed to mention one important detail: Rebekah is a former Democratic campaign...

President Obama did something extraordinary, perhaps unprecedented, in his post-election news conference Wednesday: He claimed a mandate on behalf of voters who didn’t vote.

We keep hearing that Obama has checked out and is no longer interested in being president.

But was he ever especially interested in the work of being president? From the very start, what seemed to interest him was giving speeches and campaigning.

Even the Washington Post seems to have noticed lately that Obama has been attacking a host of strawmen.

And the WaPo is not alone; the NY Times suggested something similar when it wrote, as part of its editorial about Obama’s West Point speech: “In some ways, that was a straw-man argument…”
