    Obama spends a relatively small amount of time doing anything.

  2. 1539days says:

    ABC relied heavily on people like Jay Carney, Linda Douglass and Claire Shipman (Carney’s wife) for 2008 campaign coverage. Carney and Douglass both jumped ship for Obama shortly after the inauguration.

  3. 1539days says:

    Relatively small time campaigning, except for maybe a prostitute.

    • Lulu says:

      Don’t politicians get to keep whatever is leftover of campaign money if they loose, quit, or choose not to run? I know they can hand over some to other candidates and Obama does not share as witnessed in 2008 and 2010. I have wondered if his frenetic whoring, um, money raising is not just a big fat retirement fund.

  4. yttik says:

    He does spend a relatively small time campaigning, compared to the time he spends going on vacation and playing golf. His idea of “work” is going to Disneyland and hanging out at Cinderella’s castle.

    Newt is beating on NBC’s David Gregory today. I think I’m in love.

    • yttik says:

      Me too! Romney needs to get in there and rip out somebody’s throat on national TV if he wants to impress voters. I think we’re a rather pissed off, downtrodden bunch, looking for some blood. Somebody needs to take on the establishment, the media, the GOP elite. At the moment Newt is the one doing that.

      • myiq2xu says:

        If any candidate successfully taps into the “mad as hell” demographic they will be unbeatable.

        Four years ago people wanted Hopenchange. Now they want to Kicksomeass.

      • Lola-at-Large says:

        Except don’t forget that he’s part of the GOP elite.

        Romney is like Obama in that he’ll lie to get elected and is in the pockets of Big Business and Wall Street.

        Gingrich is like Obama in that he’ll lie to get elected and is frequently guilty of talking out of both sides of his mouth–one side to the populace, one side to BB/WS.

        • Three Wickets says:

          Maybe the difference is that unlike Obama and Romney, it doesn’t feel like the media elite, the business elite, and the political establishment are trying to stuff him down our throats. Not for now at least.

    Mitt to release tax records for 2010 and 2011

    http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/articles/2012/01/22/romney_to_release_his_tax_returns_on_tuesday/

    Maybe it is me, but since the IRS doesn’t care until April 15th, I think the whole tax thing is dumb.

    • Lola-at-Large says:

      Been seeing this everywhere. Mitt says it was a mistake to wait so long, as if it was THIS simple feature that cost him SC. But it’s a lot more complicated than that.

    • Three Wickets says:

      Newt released his returns, it says he paid 30%. Mitt will release his, and it’ll say he paid 15%, a lower rate than most of the middle class pays on their income. It’s a big difference, imho as a taxpayer.

    • Three Wickets says:

      On the one hand Mitt is on the campaign trail saying the national debt is in crisis and we must balance the federal budget, on the other hand he’s legally cheating on his personal income tax returns with Cayman accounts etc, he looks like a hypocrite. But that’s politics. Newt will have to answer for his time on Freddie’s board, etc.

    Family announces that Joe Paterno died today

    • DandyTiger says:

      I suspect there’s a lot more to the Zachary Edwards story that goes back to the ’08 Dem primaries. Wonder if anyone cares enough to dig.

      • HELENK says:

        Instapundit has a comment on this story and the acorn thing to install Secretaries of State to prevent investigations of voter fraud

        • 1539days says:

          This is nothing new. Soros had the same idea when a Secretary of State certified the 2000 election in Florida for Bush. Move On and others worked to get SOS in states to make close elections go their way. A lot of them got blown out in 2010.

  8. DandyTiger says:

    Someone needs to portray Obama as he really is: as pissy and distant and oblivious and privilaged as Romney. I think the voters have realized that the media will never do it, because they are the same as Obama and Romney and their people.

    Even though the media and the party machines wants another one of them, Romney, the voters don’t seem to be on board. Stupid voters. The machines and the media are patient and assume the voters don’t matter because they usual don’t. We’ll see.

  9. HELENK says:

    oh my Maureen Dowd thinks backtrack and meeechelle are self centered. Is that like the pot and kettle thing???

    http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/22/opinion/sunday/dowd-showtime-at-the-apollo.html?_r=1&partner=rssnyt&emc=rss

    • Lulu says:

      You got there first. What on earth is going on. Are the media getting tired of the Obama’s crap. Did she just notice that they are narcissists-both of them.

  10. DandyTiger says:

    Isn’t it early for playing the race card. MSNBC is full on pushing the Newt is an evil racist again this morning. I thought they drummed that to death last night. Well, when that’s all you have, that’s all you can say.

    • DeniseVB says:

      This would be a good time for Cain, who’s been keeping his powder dry, to endorse him ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Though the Obama media would just spin that into it takes one to know one, re: womanizing, and won’t have a thing to do with race. Sigh.

  11. DeniseVB says:

    Looks like Obama’s SOTU speech is going partisan and will be beating up Republicans as the “party of the rich”. Whoa. Maybe it should be called the STFU speech?

    http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/01/21/us-usa-obama-speech-idUSTRE80K0JV20120121

    Nah, he doesn’t campaign much.

  12. Lulu says:

    Now Modo is calling out the Obama’s. “The portrait of the first couple in Jodi Kantorโ€™s new book, โ€œThe Obamas,โ€ bristles with aggrievement and the rational presidentโ€™s disdain for the irrational nature of politics, the press and Republicans. Despite what his rivals say, the president and the first lady do believe in American exceptionalism โ€” their own, and they feel overassaulted and underappreciated.” http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/22/opinion/sunday/dowd-showtime-at-the-apollo.html?_r=1&partner=rssnyt&emc=rss
    They think they are too good for us and surround themselves with sycophants. What on earth is going on? Is the NYT pissed at the WH for being dicks about this person’s ( who works for them ) book.

    Romney to release tax returns on Tuesday, calls delay ‘a mistake’

    Gov. Mitt Romney said Sunday he will release his tax returns on Tuesday as he tries to pivot from an issue that dragged him down in his South Carolina primary loss to Newt Gingrich.

    Romney said heโ€™ll post his 2010 tax return and 2011 estimate online Tuesday, after he was hammered by his rivals and gave awkward debate answers last week as he said he would release his tax returns in April.

    โ€œI think we made a mistake holding off as long as we did,โ€ Romney said in an interview on Fox News Sunday. โ€œIt was a distraction. We want to get back to the real issues of the campaign.โ€

    • DandyTiger says:

      By issues I assume Mitt means how it’s now his turn to play king and play golf.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Might be too little too late. I really don’t care about personal lives (taxes and wimmins) unless it affects mine.

      Thus my problems with the Obamas living high on the hog while telling me to tighten my belt, eat peas and move more. Maybe if they set the example and feel my pain? ๐Ÿ˜›

    • yttik says:

      I don’t think most voters really care much about the tax return stuff, it’s his wimpy response that worries them. He was like a deer caught in the headlights. Now if he had grabbed one of the other candidates or moderators and ripped their head off for having the audacity to ask about his tax returns, I bet his favorables would go up.

  14. HELENK says:

    He is NOT campaigning. He just wants another look at 57 states before he leaves office.It is not his fault that people pay a lot of money to have dinners with him.

    Godspeed to you Rep. Giffords.

  22. yttik says:

    Kind of interesting, Newt now actually has 25 delegates to Romney’s 14, but then there’s those unpledged delegates, the ones not selected by the voters. So Romney gets 17 of those and only one for Newt. The delegate count is now 31 Romney, 26 Newt.

    If primaries were really about one man one vote, without all this nonsense around super delegates and unpledged delegates and the Party being allowed to influence who the nominee is, Newt is the one voters have chosen so far in all three states.

    In all three states so far, Romney actually performed so badly, he’s only been able to accumulate 14 actual delegates from the people voting. For a comparison, Ron Paul managed to get himself ten and he’s always been at the bottom of the pack.

  23. I always tell my husband “when shopping, if you can’t find something… DO NOT ask a pimply faced boy.

    Carney is the quintessential, perpetual “pimply faced boy.” Always clueless about everything.

    I see that Gingrich is going to be giving a speech in Florida about renewing our commitment to space exploration. I know a lot of science geeks who are disturbed about NASA’s new mission’s being Muslim outreach. If he can relate it to how many jobs were created directly and indirectly from the space program and the technology that made its way into all of our homes, this could be a triple for him. Or given the season, maybe a first down would be a better analogy.

    Holder and Breuer have excellent resumes emphasizing defense for white collar criminals. Apparently they also help them with legal opinions to facilitate the commission of the crimes and then prevent investigation and prosecution by heading up the Dept of Justice. This is a new standard of legal services. Consiglieres Holder and Breuer has a nice ring to it.
