Early in the campaign cycle Obama’s team repeatedly bragged how they would raise $1 billion.

As the season wore on, it appeared less and less likely.

But in September Obama and the DNC jointly raised $181 million, putting Obama back on track:

I wrote off Politico a long time ago.  Remind me not to look at the Politico links you send.

Sure, just like NYT and WaPo it’s hard not to look and link, because it covers so much ground.

But really, nonsense like this article written from three of the biggest names at Politico,...

The video of Obama from 2007 will not itself change the election. At that level, it was over-hyped.

But it is a reminder of the nasty side of Obama, the side well-hidden, the side which does not hesitate to play racial and class politics when convenient and to his advantage.   The side...

Looks like Clint Eastwood got under Obama’s skin.

Obama sent this tweet today in response to Eastwood mocking Obama last night by using an empty chair as a prop (via The Rhetorican):

While I was very uncertain whether the Eastwood appearance worked, I now believe it did.

If it didn’t, Obama would not have felt the...

We are constantly told that we portray Barack Obama as The Other because of his race.

Actually, no.

We don’t portray Obama as The Other. We portray him as what he is not what he pretends to be, and none of what he is or pretends to be has anything to do...

The lying liars and the lies they tell.

A SuperPAC run by former Obama spokesman Bill Burton accused Mitt Romney of killing a woman because she lost insurance when her husband’s job was terminated.

CNN has blown this ad apart, finding that the woman continued to have health insurance through her own employer...

Another faux Obama fundraising ad from Patricia.

Please, let’s not have another repeat of what happened the last time.

It’s fake, but it could be real, which is what’s so frightening:

The moment I heard Obama’s “you didn’t build that” speech, I knew Obama had dug himself a deep hole from which he would have to spend considerable time climbing out of.

Via Zeek Miller at BuzzFeed Politics, the Obama campaign and Democrats understand how bad the issue has hurt Obama, and are...

Obama has stepped in it big time, and we have Elizabeth Warren to thank.

Obama gave voice to his political creed in the form of parroting Warren’s famous rant about factory owners:
