Notice how the Obama captured when he doesn’t think he is being recorded is so differenct from campaign Obama.  The  “bitter clinger” remarks and the Netanyahu put-down are the most memorable.

And there are the hot mic sound bites which the media won’t release, like CBS refusing to release the full audio of Obama’s...

Early on, Team Obama was bragging about raising $1 billion.

When over the summer and fall fundraising did not seem to be all it should be, the confidence remained.

Now, not so much.  Via The Hill:

That’s what David Axelrod tweeted then quickly deleted, as reported at The Atlantic:

Obama strategist David Axelrod tweeted a not-quite-decipherable message Monday that included a link to a story about Mormon women being erroneously barred from some official ceremonies because they were menstruating. Then he deleted the tweet. What does it...

The Breitbart video of Barack Obama embracing Prof. Derrick Bell, one of the founders of critical race theory, has been dismissed as a dud and failure.

But the dialogue about how that narrative fits into Obama’s campaign tactics — something I explored on Day 2 of this blog — must have the Obama campaign...

I didn’t watch the Halftime show yesterday, but I did notice Twitter light up like a Christmas Holiday tree, with shouts of Et tu Clint!

Now I know why:

It pretty much was an Obama commercial supporting the government bailout of Chrysler:

Apparently the ad was pulled from YouTube and Chrysler’s own website based on an ...

Conservative blogger John Hawkins (Right Wing News and elsewhere) poses the age-old conservative question:

Choose to have your head cut off with a chainsaw (voting for Obama) or just a limb removed (voting for Mitt).

John chooses life and limb (he’s a Newt supporter).

Mitt Romney “surges” when he and his SuperPAC outspend rivals on negative ads several times over.  In Florida he has outspent Newt by $12 million, and it is showing up in the polls.

Mark Levin made a good point yesterday as to why Romney outspending Republican rivals to win is no measure of...

If you asked me even a couple of weeks ago whether the Republican Party could heal from the wounds of this election cycle in time to unite against Obama, I would have said “Yes.”

I’m not so sure anymore.  After the South Carolina primary the Republican establishment, and media supporters like Matt Drudge, launched ...

Via WaPo:

All told, Obama held four fundraisers in New York on Thursday, flying here after unveiling a new proposal in Orlando, related to boosting tourism.

While his four remaining Republican rivals held another televised debate in South Carolina, Obama was filling his war chest by talking with influential Jewish voters, yukking it...

Last night’s debate reminded people of why Newt surged in the fall before Romney’s SuperPAC and almost the entire conservative media went after him in December.

This was one of the highlights (which led to Juan williams asking the ill-fated follow-up on the “food stamp president” line):

The second Mitt Romney announced he would not release his income tax returns if he becomes nominee I predicted it would not stand because the refusal would, at a minimum, create a major distraction.  It’s part of a larger problem with secrecy which will haunt Romney if he is the nominee.

Since 2008 Obama has pursued a class warfare agenda, narrowing his focus over time from the Top 5% to the Top 2% to the Top 1%.  This year Obama has narrowed his focus even further, singling out those millionaires and billionaires who pay a lower tax rate than their secretaries.
