Some people in the Republican Party want to follow John McCain’s policy of not going after Obama personally:

Republicans on a private Republican National Committee conference call with allies warned Tuesday that party surrogates should refrain from personal attacks against President Barack Obama, because such a strategy is too hazardous for...

The Center for American Progress (CAP), the George Soros funded Democratic messaging machine, runs the aggressive Think Progress website.

Think Progress is obsessed with attacking the Tea Party movement as racist, the Koch Brothers as evil manipulators, and Clarence Thomas as corrupt.  Think Progress blogger Matthew Yglesias helped ignite the false story that Sarah Palin’s electoral map was...

Here’s the background via The NY Post:

Considering that President Obama has practically made New York his second  home between fund-raising, UN visits and “date nights” with the missus, you’d  think he’d be a little more sympathetic to beleaguered residents and workers  schlepping home on a work night — especially during the...

Calling Tad Devine.  You reopened the door by claiming the Romney campaign was bringing Jeremiah Wright back into play when clearly it was not.  Basically, you told people not to think about the pink elephant.

Now The Daily Caller has some more video of Obama praising his pastor and mentor.

The same way Ted Kennedy and John McCain did.

And it’s already showing results for Obama.  Mitt Romney’s negatives are rising because of some initial attacks by the Obama campaign apparatus on Romney’s “core” and his Wall Street connections:

So? What makes you think that would give him a second thought?

The quoted language in the headline is from Pat Caddell and Doug Shoen in a column at The Wall Street Journal urging Obama not to run for re-election for the sake of preserving the Democratic Party, The Hillary Moment:

Obama’s mission is not yet completed.  He’s said previously that’s he’s not even halfway towards where he want to take this country.

Now Obama’s released a video intended to inspire his supporters to give him four more years to finish the job, but a line in the video actually should inspire us:

HillaryIs44 has a good post on the Obama-lovin’ media and how it covers for Obama’s campaign dirty tricks.

The post is in response to this statement by Ben Smith at Politico:

“Teabagger” is the pejorative of choice for left-wing bloggers and an occasional Democratic politician, when trying to vilify supporters of the Tea Party movement.  It is a slang term which describes a sexual act.

And it is a term used by Hilda Solis, Secretary of Labor, as reported by Sunshine State News (via Drudge):

The skeptics of 2008 proved prescient; those who demonized them should be embarrassed.
