Obama and Mitt Prove Hemingway Was Right

When F. Scott Fitzgerald told Ernest Hemingway, “The rich are different from you and me,” Hemingway is said to have replied, “Yes, they have more money.”

June’s fundraising numbers show the party of the rich does indeed have more money.  While Mitt and the RNC raised $106 million, President Obama and the DNC raised only $71 million.

The GOP’s Hypocritical War on “War”

Ok, so here comes some spokesman for the RNC, some Sean Spicer, absolutely outraged about Democrats accusing Republicans of a “war on women.”  He says it’s an insult to our veterans:

“I find it offensive….  It’s not only bad, but it’s downright pathetic they would use a term like ‘war’ when there are millions of Americans who actually have engaged in a real war.  To use a term like that borders on unpatriotic.”

Um, Sean, maybe you haven’t noticed, but the Republican presidential candidates have been accusing President Obama and the Dems of waging a “war on religion.”  Are your candidates unpatriotic?

And every year, we have to hear the folks at Fox News whine about the “war on Christmas.”  Are all those GOP cheerleaders at your propaganda arm unpatriotic?

And does anybody recall the RNC calling Nancy Reagan unpatriotic for her “war on drugs?”  Anybody?

Mitt’s Campaign Steps on Big Jeb Bush Endorsement

On a day that should have been all about celebrating their double-digit Illinois win and finally getting Jeb Bush’s endorsement, Mitt’s campaign instead has everyone focused on that humble, low-tech toy the Etch-a-Sketch.

Mitt’s senior adviser Eric Fehrnstrom went on CNN and, in reply to a question about whether moves to the right during the primary would hurt Mitt in the general, said this:

“I think you hit a reset button for the fall campaign, everything changes.  It’s almost like an Etch-a-Sketch, you can kind of shake it up, and we start all over again.”

Of course, this has been Mitt’s problem his whole career, that he’s the blank screen who’s happy to put up a new picture just long enough to get your vote.

The DNC, the Obama campaign, and the Santorum campaign are all over this, making fun of Mitt.

Santorum is contrasting himself as the “What you see is what you get” candidate.  Agree with Santorum or not, you have to respect his consistency and conviction.
