President 2012: The GOP Sends Obama’s Getaway Postcards from Martha’s Vineyard

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Barack Obama, GOP, Humour, Reince Priebus, Republican National Committee

In a humorous fundraising e-mail the Republican National Committee is playing upon the recent Obama vacation on Martha’s Vineyard.

Right after his tax-payer funded campaign tour of the Midwest this week, President Obama will be flying to Martha’s Vineyard for a nine day vacation. Before he jets off, send him a postcard.

He sure needs a break after a long year criss-crossing the country raising money to save his job – all the while over 14 million Americans are out of work and even more are suffering because of his policies.

After you send President Obama and your friends & family a postcard please take a moment to make a secure online contribution of $10, $15, $25, $50, $100 or more to support conservative candidates and help our Party defeat Barack Obama in 2012.

Sincerely,



Reince
Priebus


Chairman, Republican National Committee

Well, it is kinder than Matt Drudge’s treatment of the President.

The Republican National Committee Chairmanship race heats up today with a debate to be held at 1 PM (EST). You can watch it here or here.

I will try to post up pre-debate interviews for all of the candidates.

RNC Chairmanship Race: Reince Priebus the Front-Runner?

Reince Priebus and Michael Steele

Looks like it.

Conversations with a number of strategists close to the RNC – and its 168 voting members – suggest that none of the six candidates in the running are anywhere close to securing the 85 votes needed to claim the chairmanship.

But two tiers of candidates have begun to emerge, with the top three seen as potential winners and the bottom three regarded as longer shots. Given the number of undecided voters and the unpredictability of the ballot process, though, it’s hard to count anyone out at the moment.

Chris Cilliza ranks the candidates.

But, it is difficult to do an accurate whip count at this time.

Now, if Sarah Palin weighs into this race who will she support?

Michael Steele?
