  • Obama Claims Obamacare is Working You Just Havent Noticed

    10/04/2014 8:14:55 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 40 replies ^ | October 4, 2014 | Michael Schaus
    I’m beginning to think that Obama doesn’t actually have any speech writers or talking-point authors… He’s just recycling the set of talking points he was handed in the first four years of his tenure. During a recent Q&A session at a campaign event in Princeton Indiana, the President trotted out the tried-and-failed talking points of 2012 to defend his signature healthcare law. According to the Free Beacon:“We are seeing almost a double-digit increase in health-care costs every year,” General Manager Mihir Paranjape said. “Do you think that trend is going to go down, and what can we do to control that...
  • Campaigner in Chief Holds Pep Rally to Discuss Status of Fiscal Cliff Deal22

    If you watched Obama’s comments this afternoon you would not be remiss to think it was actually a campaign event. Obama came out, flanked by ‘middle class Americans’ or what Twitchy aptly referred to as a “human rainbow,” and played the blame game all while reminding Americans Republicans that he won the election. Oh, and the “middle class taxpayers” repeatedly applauding when Obama took shots at Congress for its inaction thus far really helped set the pep rally vibe, too. GOP lawmakers weren’t thrilled with the comments, either: Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) said President Obama likely lost votes for the...

    WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama is ramping up a fresh phase of his re-election bid with a bus tour next week, focusing more on direct engagement with voters and less on ritzy fundraisers. Obama's two-day road trip through Pennsylvania and Ohio, two key battleground states in the November election, kicks off July 5, a campaign official said. It will be the president's first bus tour of the 2012 campaign.

    President Obama and his aides claim they're just not sure how his endorsement of same-sex marriage will play politically. But his campaign is pushing awfully hard to make sure it plays well. The campaign, within hours of Obama's interview in which he declared for the first time his support for gay marriage, blasted out a fundraising email to supporters. At dawn on Thursday, the campaign released a web video highlighting the president's new-found stance and lambasting likely GOP opponent Mitt Romney's opposition to gay marriage. Now the president is preparing to head to a sold-out fundraiser Thursday evening at George...
  • BIDEN: 'Are we campaigning? Yes, we are!'

    Vice President Joe Biden lashed out at critics today who have claimed that his and the President's efforts to get a job's bill passed is mere "campaigning." "Are we campaigning?" he said. "Yes! We are campaigning to change this environment." Biden was in York, Pa., visiting the Goode Elementary School to argue that the American Jobs Act would support 400,000 education jobs. Because of budget cuts, the York School District has been forced to lay off 100 teachers. Waxing at times poetic, Biden stressed the importance of education in keeping the nation competitive. "If our students suffer, our future suffers,...

    Mr. President, are we finished paying for your pep rallies? I mean, you were like the Homecoming King this week. President Obama went to Columbus, Ohio Tuesday to speak to children at a high school about his new jobs act. The president spoke to these adoring teenagers for 17 minutes! THATS ALL. And that includes being interrupted by the delirious crowd 44 times for applause, and several times for eruptions like, Pass this bill! Pass this bill! Pass this bill! Pass this bill! You, taxpayer, flew him out there for this nonsense. And then, silly people, you did it again!...

    President Obama lunched at a Capitol Hill eatery today with six lucky volunteer organizers from across the country who won an essay contest run by his re-election campaign. The volunteers, among 1,600 participants in the campaigns Summer Organizer program, wrote on why they organize in their communities and what they learned this summer. Kathleen McKevitt, 67, a former international marketing manager for GE turned freelance photojournalist and consultant, also attended the lunch as a summer organizer from Idaho, where she has been an active Obama supporter since the 2008 presidential campaign. The president spent an hour mingling with the volunteers...

    WASHINGTON It was a year and a half ago when President Obama told Diane Sawyer of ABC News in an interview that he would rather be a good one-term president than a mediocre two-term president. Now, coming off one of his worst weeks since taking office, Mr. Obama is nearing a decision on whether he really meant that. The Federal Reserves finding on Tuesday that there is little prospect for rapid economic growth over the next two years was the latest in a summer of bad economic news. One administration official called the atmosphere around the presidents economic team...

    As I mentioned in the OOTD today, Barack Obama promised a new focus on jobs for about the 15th time in less than three years, shortly after the conclusion of the debt-ceiling deal. As part of that new focus, Obama plans a bus tour an unusual mode of travel for an American President, but SOP for a presidential candidate working the crowds to bolster support. But when White House reporters quizzed press secretary Jay Carney about whether Obama or taxpayers would foot the bill for this whirlwind tour, Carney responded that the air of cynicism is quite thick, as...
