    President Obama told a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraiser in L.A. last night that the country is “not going to make good choices unless we break out of this cycle in which dysfunction breeds cynicism, and cynicism then breeds more dysfunction.” “I’m in trouble at home. And the reason is, is because I told Michelle back in 2012 I had run my last campaign, but a couple months ago, I had to let her in on a secret, and that is, honey, I got one more campaign I got to run,” he quipped to a well-heeled audience including Barbra Streisand,...

    President Barack Obama is attending high-dollar Democratic Party fundraisers hosted by Silicon Valley executives, drawing attention to the complicated relationship between the president and the high-tech industry. The revelations of National Security Agency spying have created an outcry from tech companies whose data have been gathered by the government. Obama has had to reassure Internet and tech executives that he is committed to protecting privacy. …

    That hot new website making fun of Jewish Republicans? My husband and I made it—and you’re welcome.You know how it is. You’re standing in the hallway outside the bathroom watching your husband shave, your always-simmering wrath toward the state of American politics in general and the Republican Party in particular brought to a rolling boil by several cups of coffee drunk at injudicious speed, and you’re both inveighing against certain distant-ish relatives whose ideological leanings are a constant source of ire, wondering aloud what terrible misfortune might need to befall them to bring them around, or at least lay their...

    We haven’t heard the boast that “Obama will have 1 $ billion to run on,” for quite a while, but those who are hoping Barack Obama will be reelected have to be shocked at the relative condition of his fund raising so far. Knowing how to count and read tells anyone Obama could not get to 1 $ billion at the rate he is progressing since last summer. Nevertheless, this fact is scarcely touched upon in the mainstream media as if not speaking about it means his fund raising problems don’t exist. Last week Obama raised eyebrows instead of money...
  • Obama campaign nixes cell phones at some fundraisers

    You have to turn off your cell phone on an airplane, but at least you get to keep it. That's not the case when high-flying donors pony up for first-class access to hear President Barack Obama at exclusive fundraisers -- his campaign takes the devices away. So much for live-tweeting or videotaping Obama's pitch. The Washington Post's David Nakamura -- the "pool" print journalist representing his colleagues and reporting back to them on Obama's trip to New York -- noticed the practice as the president wooed group of about 60 wealthy contributors Monday at the home of Hamilton "Tony" James,...

    File this one under culture of corruption. Obama supporters just can’t seem to stay out of trouble, can they?

New York Daily News reports: Courtney Dupree was convicted of vastly overstating the billings of his Long Island City-based lighting company GDC Acquisitions in order to fraudulently obtain a loan from Amalgamated Bank.Dupree, 42, sat stone-faced as the verdict was read in Brooklyn Federal Court. He faces up to 30 years in prison and has to pay back at least $18 million. …Dupree, who attended...

    As the cliche goes, there are no coincidences in politics. Obama fundraiser group Code Pink just happened to have arrived in Cairo last week for the group’s ninth visit there in two years as part of its campaign to undermine the Mubarak government and help Hamas, the terrorist group that controls Gaza. Code Pink and the media are trying to portray the leftist group's 'sudden' appearance in Cairo Wednesday as an act of courageous support for a democratic revolution. Nothing could be further from the truth.Code Pink protests the Mubarak government in Tahrir Square, Cairo, Egypt. February 2, 2011. Code...
