The 148 fundraisers for his presidential campaign, as of tonight. The celebrity videos. The $10 million buys for attack ads. The fashion-designer-created $85 tote bags and $45 t-shirts from the campaign store. The $40 grill spatulas with the campaign logo. The “official” events in swing states that look and sound like campaign rallies. The strategic leaks of classified information.
The Obama campaign has everything… except a compelling reason for Americans to believe the next four years under this president would be better than the past 40 months.
