Sharp New Obama Ad Goes After Romney Over Same Sex Marriage (VIDEO)

While Barack Obama was almost glacial in his “evolution” toward endorsing gay marriage, his campaign was right quick to capitalize on it.

Obama’s College Letter To Girlfriend Proves He Was A Giant, Pretentious Dork

Here’s a letter from one Barack Obama to then-girlfriend Alex McNear about T.S. Eliot:

I haven’t read “The Waste Land” for a year, and I never did bother to check all the footnotes. But I will hazard these statements — Eliot contains the same ecstatic vision which runs from Münzer to Yeats. However, he retains a grounding in the social reality/order of his time. Facing what he perceives as a choice between ecstatic chaos and lifeless mechanistic order, he accedes to maintaining a separation of asexual purity and brutal sexual reality.

How NOT To Campaign On The Killing Of Bin Laden

Last week, PoliticOlogy considered a new Obama reelection ad that touted the president’s super-serious decision to approve the mission to kill Osama bin Laden. Obama was seen looking alternately worried and resolute, under a Bill Clinton voiceover about how difficult of a decision it was for the president, and the potential political fallout if it had gone awry. PoliticOlogy’s conclusion: the ad focused too much on the impact of the Osama killing on Obama, as opposed to the SEAL troops who executed the mission or the country who favored it, giving credence to the theory of Obama’s presidency as a cult of celebrity…Read More

Will Obama’s Negative Campaign Against Mitt Romney’s Wealth Backfire?

 

Polls have the two men tied, which is why polls are generally not worth much. It doesn’t matter for whom people would vote if given a hypothetical match-up over the phone, it matters for whom they will actually get up and drive to the polling place. Voting implies a strong impetus: you have to like a candidate enough to go out of your way to cast your ballot, or dislike their opponent even more to do the same…Read More
