At the risk of beating a dead horse, I’m letting you know that the Obama campaign has unveiled yet another hashtag: #readytogo.

Now they’re just making it too easy.

The campaign, which officially kicked off Saturday in Ohio, even got some some college students (a la 2008) at Ohio  State University to lend...

In the days since the unveiling of the Obama campaign’s cartoon Julia, critics on both the left and the right have laughed off the cradle-to-grave depiction of life with Big Brother handling everything for “its women”:

MSNBC’s Willie Geist: “They did lob this up as a softball for Republicans, one conservative saying, ‘Who the...

Obama has launched an attack ad quoting Romney as saying he would not “move heaven and earth” to get Osama bin Laden and suggesting Romney would not have given the go ahead.

This coverage is typical:

Considering what a big deal AxelPlouffe and the media are making, it amazes me that the Romney campaign either is...

Obama campaign unveils “Forward” slogan

Today the Obama campaign unveiled “Forward,” a seven-minute video highlighting his campaign strategy for the election:

Similar to the 2008 concept, “Change,” this one-word slogan captures a vague sense of movement without articulating a strategy, end, or principle. The movement this terms evokes is no more than a different state than we’re currently...

Obama has been narrowing his targets for attack and derision ever since the 2008 campaign.

Everywhere he looks, he finds some group to hold up for public scorn, and that group has narrowed from the top 5% to the top 2% to the top 1% to Wall Street to the

One stubborn fact of the labor market argues against the idea. That is the gender-hours gap, close cousin of the gender-wage gap. Most people have heard that full-time working American women earn only 77 cents for every dollar earned by men. Yet these numbers...

Which do you think is better, the original Obama Celebrity ad run by the McCain campaign in 2008, or the new one from American Crossroads which was just released?

First, the original:

Here’s how the NY Times Editorial Board characterized the McCain ad:

The RNC just released a video comparing Obama’s Jimmy Fallon appearance with Mitt Romney’s victory speech last night.

I had thought about that comparison this morning when I watched the video of the Fallon appearance. Obama has turned the Office of the Presidency into a sight and sound gag.

The title of the video is...

In 2008, when Barack Obama was in the midst of a historic campaign to become the leader of the free world, he firmly positioned himself to be the man the American people could unite around.

One of the many enduring myths and legends of the Obama 2008 victory is that Obama’s record-breaking fundraising came from small donors.  Perpetuating the false impression that small donors are Obama’s base is a priority of the Obama campaign, which now focuses on running low cost ($5, $3) dinner raffles to run up the number of...

Obama’s targeting of demonized groups has been narrowing over time, something documented here since the 2008 campaign.

Remember when the Top 5% were the target? Phew, that’s so 2008.

Then the Top 2%.  Phew, that’s so 2009.

Then the Top 1%.  Phew, that’s so 2010.

Then Wall Street.  Phew, that’s so 2011.

Is this really happening again?  Is Mitt Romney refusing, even assuming he is the nominee which looks likely, to release any more tax returns?

Romney released his 2010 return and projections for 2011 only after a disastrous couple of weeks of refusing to do so.  I predicted at the start that his position ...
