The Obama campaign is w-a-y behind the power curve
Of course their candidate has a failed domestic and foreign policy record, so in large part, that’s to be expected.
On the other hand, the campaign has had so much ‘splainin’ to do that they’ve been unable to dodge avoidable (avoidable through coordination and vetting) blunders of all sorts like Joe Biden forcing Barry Oh!’s hand on homosexual marriage, the idiotic Julia campaign, the Forward slogan, the Obama-provided ‘born in Kenya’ biographical blurb, and the the latest blame Bain face plant.
The Obama campaign’s latest attack tells the story of workers at an Indiana office supply company who lost their jobs after a Bain-owned company named American Pad & Paper (Ampad) took over their company and drove it out of business.
Here’s what the Obama Web video doesn’t mention: A top Obama donor and fundraiser had a much more direct tie to the controversy and actually served on the board of directors at Richardson, Texas-based Ampad, which makes office paper products.
Jonathan Lavine is a long-time Bain Capital executive and co-owner of the Boston Celtics. He is also one of President Obama’s most prolific fundraisers. He has already raised more than $200,000 for the Obama campaign this election, according to Federal Election Commission records.
While politics ain’t beanbag, it was for Obama in 2008 thanks in large part to the traditional media papering over and/or flatly ignoring their candidate’s flaws. But it ain’t 2008.
Fool us once, shame on Obama. Fool us twice, shame on us.
