Cain attack ad – on target!

One of Obama’s ’08 fund raising secrets

I reread an interesting couple of pages tonight in Game Change by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin. Well, actually more than a couple.

In 2006, Anita Dunn was brought into the unofficial, unannounced Obama campaign to help with fund raising. We all know who Anita Dunn is. But what many don’t know is that she was the chief strategist for former Senator Bill Bradley’s 2000 presidential run and Senator Evan Bayh is also a former Dunn client.

One of the things that made the Obama campaign unique and successful, and a lesson I’m sure the Republicans have learned since the ’08 election, was their aggressive use of the internet, especially for fund raising.

After the 2004 DNC speech that launched Obama into the stratosphere, he was in demand to speak and help raise money for several mid-term democrats. What she did to bring his Senatorial PAC alive again, was to require that every time he appeared to help a candidate, the email addresses of those in attendance was gathered up for Obama’s Hopefund.

“Everytime he did an event for a candidate, Hopefund would require the beneficiary to set up a registration system and then turn over the attendees email addresses to the [Obama’s] PAC.

“This was no small thing. As 2006 rolled on, the requests poured in – urgent, desperate pleas from Democratic candidates fervent in the view that a visit from Obama would be their fiscal and political salvation. That added up to a lot of chits, and a lot of email addresses.”

Jennings: the best advertisement for home schooling

Kevin Jennings

From BigGovernment and Gateway Pundit. This is a true must read but be warned, it’s sexually graphic and highly disturbing. And why Kevin Jennings still has a position in the White House is a mystery to me! This man doesn’t belong anywhere near our children’s education let alone near our children, period!

Just as Van Jones and Anita Dunn (yea, I know her job was ‘a temporary” position from the beginning) were unceremoniously drummed out of their WH positions, someone HAS to take up the charge to get Jennings out. The stuff sited in the Gateway Pundit blog is disturbing and inappropriate. Exposing children to the kind of sexual information that Jennings and his cohorts are recommending to teachers, borders on criminal.

This is information that most adults don’t want to be exposed to. But to put this stuff on a “recommended reading list” for classroom use, is totally appalling!

The literature sited is not educational but pornographic and the genre of adult reading. None of it is for children. Not for a minute would I call for banning or censoring books and authors but these books are not appropriate for classroom discussion.

This guy needs to go. That is simply it. And someone with a loud voice has to take up the charge.

Fox Feud, just a passing phase?

At least one Democrat strategist and advisor to Fox News has been told by the WH to stay off Fox in the future.

Just more Obama Hope and Change.

The message was, “We better not see you on again,” said the strategist, who spoke on condition of anonymity so as not to run afoul of the White House. An implicit suggestion, he said, was that “clients might stop using you if you continue.”


Patrick Caddell, a Fox News contributor and former pollster for President Carter, said he had spoken to Democratic consultants who said they were told by the White House to avoid appearances on Fox. He declined to give their names.

Caddell said he had not gotten that message himself from the White House.

He added: “I have heard that they’ve done that to others in not too subtle ways. I find it appalling. When the White House gets in the business of suppressing dissent and comment, particularly from its own party, it hurts itself.”

Some observers say White House officials might be urging consultants to spurn Fox to isolate the network and make it appear more partisan. A boycott by Democratic strategists could help drive the White House narrative that Fox is a fundamentally different creature than the other TV news networks.

Don Fowler, a former Democratic National Committee chairman, said in an interview: “This approach is out of sync with my conception of what the Obama administration stands for and what they’re trying to do.

“I think they’ll think better of it and this will be a passing phase.”

Fox feud has unintended consequences

Interesting to see how TheOne’s approval rating has fallen in the last 2 weeks – since his Fox boycott began. It has nearly doubled since Anita Dunn fired her first slavo.

The hits just keep on comin’

From Gateway Pundit: One more commie in the White House.

I don’t think there’s one non-communist in the administration, do you?

Isn’t it amazing  how this all just went right by so many of us last November? Is this what those who voted for him, wanted? Did they have a clue this is what they were going to get?

Does the press and media understand what happens to them under communism? They all go away and the likes of Anita Dunn and Mark Lloyd take their place. Obama’s just getting started with Fox.

What truly useful idiots these followers are.  I have nothing but disdain for them all.

Amazing admissions: “We controlled the message, the media”

Republicans can take some lessons from these videos. She’s very forthright in her explanations about the campaign tactics they used, how they used them and why they worked. The Republican party doesn’t have much time to get up to speed.

Obama stayed away from the press and put his message out in measured ways on YouTube and his websites. That way his handlers were able to control the message. However, one distinct time that they failed to control the media and the candidate was this:

And when “spreading the wealth” caused him so many problems, he came back by denigrating Joe the Plumber:

But I’m wandering off topic now…

What I find also amazing in this is the admission that the media was duped by the campaign. Duped, used and manipulated. And still the MSM will be singing his praises. Those guys are just not bright enough to understand what she’s said about them.

Story @ WorldNetDaily.

Other media outlets should be afraid of this black-balling of Fox. On Sunday, several administration officials went out again and reiterated the Dunn line that Fox is not a credible news agency and even chastised the MSM for allowing Fox to set the news agenda. I guess that Rahm would have preferred that once Fox broke the ACORN story, no one else would pay attention to it. And maybe that was the veiled intention of his comment: “just because Fox says it’s news doesn’t mean the rest of you guys have to cover it, too.”
