  • Can We Taxpayers Expect Anything From “Julia?”

    On Thursday, April 3, 2012, the Barack Obama re-election campaign released “The Life of Julia.” In it are 12 stages in the life of “Julia,” a fictional woman used to demonstrate how Obama’s policies would help her. Throughout the stages in her life, Julia is depicted as someone who benefits from the programs either created by or funded by Obama. The obvious message is that a vote for Obama will keep the largesse flowing for all, not just fictional Julia. One very real problem with the “Julia” concept is that throughout the 12 stages nowhere is it mentioned that...

    You can tell they are desperate in Chicago at Obama reelection headquarters. After 3+ years of abject failure, Obama supporters could use a little encouragement. Signs that the guy who scorns those who cling to the guns and religion enjoys some sort of blessing. No need for God to be involved. The search for omens ends up in a glass of beer. And not the usual way, either. Check out this email blast from the campaign:

    President Obama’s fan base is willing to pay through the nose to get a glimpse of him. In fact, supporters in Dearborn, Michigan showed up today to shell out $1,000 just to shake the hand of The One. “A thousand dollars is a lot of money,” Lonnie Peek, one of the fortunate few to touch Obama personally, told CBS. “But other folks are kickin’ in for their candidates, so what you do is you bite the bullet. You wanna have your conscience good, to feel that this is what I did. You know, you go without a couple of meals....

    An analysis of 12 years of tax returns recently released by President Barack Obama from 2000 to 2011 shows that the First Family donated 1.4 percent or less of their income to charity until he began to run for the U.S. Senate in 2004, and gave only nominal amounts to the church except for substantial donations to the Rev. Jeremiah Wright's Trinity Church of Christ in 2006 and 2007. The analysis performed by The Christian Post shows that from 2000 to 2011, the Obamas reported an Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) of $18,677,610, of which they paid $5,794,492, or 31 percent,...

    With the general election now underway, it’s tempting to assume that President Obama has a built-in advantage by having at his disposal a campaign operation that earned universal plaudits in 2008. But as Team Obama itself already knows—or, if not, will soon come to realize—the 2012 contest will be very different from the president’s triumphant march to the White House four years ago. The key question will be how the old campaign staff responds to the new electoral landscape. Here are seven realities that Team Obama will have to adjust to.2012 will be a referendum, not a choice. One of...

    WASHINGTON - The head of the Democratic Party scolded Sen. Orrin Hatch for alleging that President Barack Obama would use Mitt Romney's Mormonism against him in the White House race."That is just preposterous," Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, told MSNBC on Wednesday. "That suggestion is utter nonsense."Hatch, during a campaign stop in northern Utah, raised the prospect that Obama's re-election campaign would play the religion card to harm Romney's chances of toppling the incumbent Democrat."You watch, they're going to throw the Mormon church at him like you can't believe," Politico quoted Hatch as saying at...
  • When Obama is Re-elected, "It's On"

    Fresh off of President Obama's "flexibility" comments to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev last week, Obama supporters are reminiscing about the 2008 campaign and getting excited. Why? According to the left, if Obama wins a second term, he doesn't have to deal with Congress, the right rolling back his achievements and "it's on." Hope and change big words? Who knew? When you combine Obama's flexibility comments with the comments above and then add in Obama's "we're working on gun control under the radar" comments to anti-gun zealot Sarah Brady, another term for Obama is looking more and more like a major...

    Mitt Romney, you got some ‘splainin’ to do! That was the gist of President’s Obama’s broadside against Paul Ryan’s budget in a scorching address Tuesday in which the president dubbed the GOP plan the kind of “radical” “social Darwinism” that’s an affront to American values. He also noted conveniently for the assembled press that Mitt Romney has called Ryan’s plan “marvelous.” [SNIP] Can Romney extricate himself from being tied to Ryan as Dole was to Gingrich? This kind of Houdini-style escape may be beyond even the skills of as brazen a flip-flopper as Romney, though it will be fun to...

The trademarks, if granted, would cover digital materials, including DVDs, CDs and audio recordings featuring Trayvon. Each trademark application costs $325.

    [Snippets -- read it ALL] ....Born in 1909, Alinsky was a left-wing activist with a streak of ruthless political realism. After studying criminology at the University of Chicago, he went into union organizing, and found it too tame. His “approach to social justice,” in the words of the Washington Post, would come to rely instead on “generating conflict to mobilize the dispossessed.”.... ....His most enduring influence may have been to inspire the National Education Association to become a political powerhouse. Sam Lambert, the executive secretary of the NEA in 1967, when it hired Alinsky as a political trainer, boasted that...

"And then, there is my good friend, Oprah, who very early on, when I was still running, just decided that she would support this guy with a name that nobody could pronounce. And...

"There's my good friend Oprah, who very early on when I was still running, just decided that she would support this guy with a name that nobody could pronounce," Obama said as he addressed guests seated around five candle-lit tables adorned with bouquets of red roses inside the cavernous Chateau-style home of actor/producer Tyler Perry.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Helped by Hollywood, President Barack Obama's campaign is releasing a 17-minute documentary that portrays the president as a resolute figure who confronted a massive economic downturn and the aftermath of the nation's war on terrorism with determination and a series of tough decisions. The documentary, commissioned by the Obama campaign, provides a window into how his team is trying to sell the president's re-election bid: As a man of principle who faced daunting challenges from the moment he won election but persevered to rescue the U.S. auto industry, begin rebuilding the economy, pass health care reform and...

    Michelle Obama told a group of Democratic supporters at a fund-raiser in Boston tonight that “we stand at a fundamental crossroads for our country,” praising her husband’s record during his first three years in office and urging them to get involved in his reelection campaign. “Barack had the backs of American workers. He put his faith in the American people,” she said of President Obama’s auto industry bailout. She also touted his record on job creation, his Supreme Court picks, and the federal health care reform law he championed. “Last year we made history together by finally passing health care...
