Debate night at The Royale. “They always care about Florida, and Ohio, and random states, and you think, that’s not fair.”
Clinton’s old supporters thrive in an alternate
online reality of their own making. Party Unity My Ass.
The 2012 platform often mentions Republicans and Mitt Romney, a change from 2008. More mentions of jobs and the middle class, but also more mentions of Bin Laden and abortion.
President Obama has taken heat from the Romney campaign in a new ad saying he gutted the Clinton welfare reform plan from 1996. At a 2007 town hall, then Senator Obama was asked how he would change Clinton’s welfare reform plan. Obama said that Clinton’s plan “didn’t give people enough tools to get out of welfare.” Obama proposed ideas such as expanding the child tax credit, providing more help with transportation, expanding the earned income tax credit, providing health care entry level jobs if it is not provided, and increasing education and job training to help people get off welfare.
“It has two sides to it, it goes in both directions at once.” From a 2008 debate.
The mailings went out across Ohio during the heated 2008 primary, and hit Clinton for the individual mandate and penalzing those who don’t buy health insurance. Hillary Clinton said the mailing was a lie and seemed “almost if the insurance companies or the Republicans wrote it.”
White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew strenuously argued today those not buying insurance after ObamaCare takes effect will be subject to a penalty, not a politically unsavory tax. But in 2008, then-Senator Obama attacked his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton’s plan for including a “penalty” for those not buying health insurance. A Republican source sends along the ad.
The Christian Coalition founder looks ahead to a big new group. Lobbyists in all 50 state capitols, 44 million cell phones, 200+ million voter contacts: “We are playing for keeps.”
It’s an promise sure to be revived by the Republicans as the general election looms. Here’s an example of Obama in 2008 Washington would have to prepare for tough times by returning to the “fiscal responsibility we had in the 1990s” by streamlining the budget.
We’d like to thank Ed Harris and “Game Change” for reminding us what the Straight Talk Express was all about.
Almost inevitable. “Notwithstanding Romney’s early delegate lead, their race remains wide open,” says Obama delegate chief Jeff Berman.
It’s a comforting comparison, but an inaccurate one.
As Mitt Romney pivots toward the general election, he’s been speaking fondly of working with the heavily Democratic legislature to get things done during his tenure as Governor. But between 2004 and 2007, when he was still Governor of the state and looking toward the national GOP, Romney didn’t mind bashing his state’s Democratic leadership for a keep laugh.
Why an Iowa supporter got off the bandwagon.
Defends him today. In ‘08, “strip away the jobs.” In ‘12, “Communism.”

The Centers For Disease Control released their findings from a 2006-2008 study of the sexual behavior of 15-to-24-year-olds in the United States, aka The Percentage of People Who Are Winning, Duh.

Things I loved, some of which happened in 2008. Thank god that year is over! I mean, yay to the new president and everything, but on the whole 2008 was a rough one.
