Chasing Obama 2012: Raising the Campaign News Cycle Debt Ceiling

July 24, 2011 Politics-2012 No Comments

Not a great deal to report on the Obama campaign since the national news cycle has been obssessed with debt ceiling theatrics. Or the fact that we’re still months away from knowing who the GOP nominee will be. So on with the candidates chasing Obama …

More or Less “In It”

Mitt Romney … Meet the Mexican Romneys! I’d have guessed that they were part of Mitt’s “stealth campaign“. I don’t put much stock in national polls done this early. But for whatever it’s worth, Romney’s ahead in the Post-ABC poll out this week. Make of it what you will … Nate Silver does.

Michele Bachmann … had a headache of a week.

Tim Pawlenty … new ad up, this time the focus is on hockey. Not surprisingly, ABC is going all Tom Petty on the usage of their copyrighted material. There’s also new radio and web video up expounding on Pawlenty’s faith.

Herman Cain … Winner of the Joe the Plumber’s vote. Maybe Joe thought he was asked about John McCain?

Jon Huntsman … One campaign manager out the door, new attack strategy in the works. Clickz also has a good overview of the role web video is playing in the Huntsman campaign.

Ron PaulSuperPAC alert.

Rick Santorum … Patch tracks the door-to-door/farm-to-farm outreach by Santorum.

Thaddeus McCotter … After participating in a twitter debate, the campaign sent a blast email out with the following subject line: “Thad McCotter Dominates Twitter Debate, Proves He is Best Candidate for President.” Gotta love that rationale for the Presidency.

Buddy Roemer … Never mind that little shindig in Bossier City. That was just the warm-up. The real announcement happened in New Hampshire on Thursday. You can just feel the Roemer-mentum, now!

Newt Gingrich … I’m convinced that it’s a matter of time before newtginrich.com ends up serving the same purpose as abevigoda.com

Gary JohnsonThis space still reserved for when Gary Johnson makes news.

Addicted to Publicity “Thinkin’ About It”

Rick Perry … Mike Huckabee may have a few questions about Perry’s 2008 support for Rudy Giuliani, but the MSM is likelier to fawn over a new candidate once he’s in. Just ask Doyle McManus. The Iowa Straw Poll, on the other hand, will offer no insights into Perry’s early appeal or organization. In light of the retirement of the Space Shuttle program, however, Rick Perry goes after President Obama for not pouring more money into the jobs program for engineers. Small government, y’all.

Even Slower News Weeks

Rudy Giuliani … Rudy takes the mulling stage to Hannity.

The Candidate Formerly Known as the Former Governor of Alaska … still in second place. There’s also the very, very, extremely, but very real case of GWAR vs Sarah Palin that I’ve never been made aware of. Helps that I don’t own any GWAR albums.

Cache Clearance: Post-Bill Filing Deadline Edition

March 12, 2013

A simple and straightforward clearing of the cache. Happy reading if you’re into that sort of thing. There are redistricting maps out for the session, but I think most folks are hoping there are no fireworks that accompany them. But just out of curiosity, I’ll probably find a little time to convert them to a […]

Aggreblogging in the Raw

February 18, 2013

Just pure, raw linkage this time. A few of these, I may come back to at some point during the week. But for now … read ‘em yourself. Committee hearings are picking up here in Austin, so there’s much fear and loathing to contend with. Reminds me: why is it that Hunter S. Thompson never […]

Two Notes on “Person of the Year”

December 19, 2012

» Time: 2012 Person of the Year: Barack Obama, the President Absolutely no shock in this year’s pick. But there are two particularly interesting passages written back-to-back in their write-up that I find particularly interesting. The first involves the transferability of the newfangled data-mining, data-crunching, hi-tech wizardy that people think won this election singlehandedly (emphasis […]

Lost Reading from an Obvious Post-Election Outcome

November 19, 2012

Election Day beyond HD137 was a bit anti-climactic for me. Anyone who doesn’t rely on rightwing media knew that Obama was going to be re-elected. Locally, I think Adrian Garcia was a somewhat assumed winner before the votes were revealed. So forgive me if it’s taken me a while to catch up on all of […]
