Hype and Blame pretty much sums up the Obama Presidency.

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.

Comments Comments Off on President 2012: Republicans Call Obama’s Campaign – Hype and Blame


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.



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.

Cino has experience and is accomplished with none of the drama or baggage of the others.

Michael Steele is the current Chairman of the Republican National Committee, having been elected in January, 2009. Previously, Michael Steele was the chairman of the Maryland Republican Party, and in 2002 he was elected as Maryland’s Lieutenant Governor.

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.
