impressive! oh…..wait

Read on:

“Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman’s presidential campaign raised $4.1 million in the nine days since he formally entered the race, though about half of the funds came from the millionaire’s own pockets, a campaign official said Thursday night. Huntsman said previously that he threw some of his own fortune into the campaign to “prime the pump” and help get it started.” (link)

So, eh, should the headline not be: “Huntsman fundraising pulls in $2 million in first nine days”?

Thanks Jovie

WSJ (May 2011): Without any fanfare, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. has taken off the table one of the chips that might have made him a formidable Republican White House hopeful right out of the gate: He will not bankroll his presidential campaign with the Huntsman fortune.

“If we were to get in the race – no self-financing,” Mr. Huntsman told reporters over the weekend in South Carolina. “Unless you can raise it legitimately, you’re not going to win.”

Thank you StR – great spot

promises, promises….

by Bobfr:

The ads not only ‘write themselves’; they’re written.

Republicans promised jobs, instead they attacked Medicare

Republicans promised jobs, instead they attacked women

Republicans promised jobs, instead they focused on disenfranchising young, disabled and elderly voters

Republicans promised jobs, instead they voted tax payer dollars to subsidize big oil

Republicans promised jobs, instead the blocked job creation and essential 21st Century infrastructure

And on and on and on.

Reality is that the Republicans now not only own the deficit, an illegal war on Iraq; fanatical attacks on American women and girls; monomaniacal commitment of tax breaks for the wealthy, corporations and subsidies for big oil; intentional disenfranchisement of voters; and active blockade of implementation of 21st Century infrastructure – they own unemployment. And I assure you the Democrats in the White House and Congress are not about to bail them out of any of it.

Come Election Day 2012 Americans will have one thing to say to Republicans – You’re FIRED

Bob, I want you working for the campaign: now!

accidents will, eh, happen

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, who has a broken ankle, uses crutches as she arrives at a House Homeland Security Committee hearing on Capitol Hill on February 25, 2010

President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton leave the Oval Office after a meeting on June 22, 2009. Secretary Clinton broke her elbow the week before.
