You know, absolutely, Obama is on the wrong side (as I see it) on several issues. But, he is also on the right side of several issues, and I for the life of me can't figure of WHAT side of the issues Romney is actually on, other than all of them at once.
Drudge Report went further, trumpeting Byers’s story with the headline: “OBAMA ADMITS FABRICATING GIRLFRIEND IN MEMOIR.”
He says cool yt things.
Richard Nixon was elected president twice. Having a cool, genial personality is important, but it's not all there is.
Eh, there's nothing else on the tube.
There are plenty of examples of "cool" losing in primaries. Kerry over Edwards. Romney over anyone.
By the established standards for politicians, even knowing pop culture well enough to have a moderately-informed opinion counts as cool. He's not being compared to twentysomethings in major cities, he's being compared to middle-aged white dudes who seem likely to say things like "hippity-hop music" and "the Nintendoes".
Politics isn't cool; it's weird and creepy.
Of course, there's also the possibility of Obama just flatly calling Newt a fucking liar on national TV.
Yeah, then Newt does the exact same thing back.
"After the 2010 elections, what was interesting, we moved to what I call Tea Party 2.0," said Clyde Fabretti, a conservative activist affiliated with tea party groups in Florida such as the West Orlando Tea Party and the Central Florida Tea Party Council. "2.0 allows for ... our ability to accomplish legislative initiatives, supporting various tea party candidates that adhere to the principles and values. And we have been hugely active."
"But it isn't the kind of activity that makes the press," Fabretti continued. "I mean, when you put 5,000 people at an event, you know, everybody shows up with their cameras. You have 10 meetings with different legislators on [Capitol] Hill -- nobody knows about it."
With many activists still lukewarm to presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, many in the movement say they will focus intensely on flipping the Senate into Republican hands.
cashman's got it. The Tea Party people have been reading Saul Alinsky, which scares (and amuses) me a little. If the left would work less on being seen (hello, Occupy) and more on getting their candidates into lower offices and their delegates into state (and eventually national) conventions, they might make some progress.
