Why the War on Obama

 
While some cynics still view Barack Obama’s appeal for “change” as empty rhetoric, it’s starting to dawn on Washington insiders that his ability to raise vast sums of money from nearly one million mostly small donors could shake the grip that special-interest money has long held over the U.S. government.

 

Powerful lobbies – from AIPAC to representatives of military and other industries – also are recognizing the value of keeping their dominance over campaign cash from getting diluted by Obama’s deep reservoir of small donors. It’s in their direct interest to dent Obama’s momentum and demoralize his rank-and-file supporters as soon as possible.


The intensifying personal attacks on Barack Obama reflect a growing realization among entrenched Washington insiders that his campaign — funded largely by small donations — could dilute their influence. Neocons, in particular, are joining with Clinton supporters to take Obama down, spreading rumors about his patriotism and his past. February 26, 2008

 

Obama’s Dubious Praise for Reagan

Barack Obama raised some eyebrows when he cited Ronald Reagan as an example of a political leader who «changed the trajectory of America.» Though Obama now says he wasn’t endorsing Reagan’s policies — only recognizing Reagan’s historic importance — the comment begs the question of what change Reagan actually wrought.

 

Were Republicans ‘the Party of Ideas’?

Hillary Clinton twisted Barack Obama’s words when she suggested that he favored right-wing policies. But there is a legitimate question about what Obama meant when he called the Republicans of recent years «the party of ideas» — and whether he was right.

How Far Will the Clintons Go?

Hillary Clinton is making clear that she will do what she must to secure the Democratic nomination, even if that means overriding the majority will of voters and skirting campaign finance laws. While some rank-and-file Democrats like this fighting spirit, others fear the Clintons are letting their personal ambitions harm the party and the nation.

 

Clintons Plumb Absurd Depths

Like the Bushes, the Clintons appear to believe that they have such an entitlement to the White House that whatever they do to get there is justified. In going negative, Hillary Clinton’s campaign is accusing Barack Obama of «plagiarism» for using a rhetorical argument recommended by his friend, Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick.

 

Hillary Clinton’s Options

Barack Obama’s ten-contest winning streak — often by double-digit margins — has provoked desperation inside Hillary Clinton’s campaign, which has turned increasingly negative. In this guest essay, Brent Budowsky asks Sen. Clinton to stop the wrecking ball.

 

Hillary’s Curious Campaign Loan

By giving her campaign a $5 million loan, Hillary Clinton opened herself to questions not only about the financial health of her presidential bid but also about how she and her husband amassed a fortune over the past seven years. A window opened on «Clinton Inc.»

 

The Clinton Audacity

Some Democrats — bruised by three decades of hardball Republican tactics — are admiring how Bill and Hillary Clinton are applying similar strategies to tear down Barack Obama. Like Republican strategist Karl Rove, the Clintons are showing the audacity to attack Obama even on issues where they may be more vulnerable.

Is John McCain a Liar?


John McCain may have fended off suspicions that he had an affair with a female lobbyist, but his blanket denials about doing favors for her clients are disintegrating. The evidence keeps building that the presumptive Republican presidential nominee doesn’t deserve his reputation as either a reformer or a straight-talker.

 

McCain’s ‘Never’ Is a Long Time


Republican presidential frontrunner John McCain reacted to a New York Times article about his friendship with a female lobbyist by issuing a statement that he has «never done favors for special interests.»
But this categorical denial is simply not true.
