The Republican National Committee is getting ahead of President Obama’s official campaign kickoff in Ohio and Virginia on Saturday with a media blitz labeling his reelection as the “Hype and Blame” tour.
The RNC will sell “Hype and Blame 2012” bumper stickers — a twist on Mr. Obama’s “hope and change” campaign of 2008 — accompanied by digital advertising, a fundraising strategy, radio and TV ads, and op-eds in local media. RNC Chairman Reince Preibus and state party chairmen will detail the strategy in a conference call with the media Thursday.
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.
Chairman, Republican National Committee
Well, it is kinder than Matt Drudge’s treatment of the President.
Republican National Committee Chairman candidate Maria Cino
Republican House Speaker is upping the ante in the Republican National Committee Chairmanship race.
“House Speaker John Boehner will hold a reception Wednesday night for RNC members, further putting his weight behind the candidacy of Maria Cino. The invitation, sent to RNC members Tuesday and obtained by POLITICO, doesn’t mention Cino’s name. But a backer of the longtime operative and party chair hopeful confirmed that she’ll be there with the speaker. Boehner has already called RNC members on Cino’s behalf, and the reception offers him one final case to make his preference clear before the committee votes Friday on the chairman’s race. ‘Speaker John Boehner cordially invites Members of the Republican National Committee to a Cocktail Reception,’ reads the invitation for the event, held at the suburban Washington hotel where the committee is meeting. It was sent to RNC members by Julie Wadler, a prominent GOP fundraising consultant who is friends with Cino and close to many House members. Boehner’s Chief of Staff, Barry Jackson, is a major Cino booster and is widely seen as the force behind the speaker’s efforts on her behalf.” Cino has 12 votes in POLITICO’s tally of RNC commitments, versus 40 for Reince Priebus, 24 for Michael Steele, 15 for Saul Anuzis and 14 for Ann Wagner.
Behind in the count so far, Cino may very well be a compromise conservative candidate (that is not Michael Steele) which the RNC members might be willing to support after several deadlocked ballots.
I will try to post up pre-debate interviews for all of the candidates.
