Small Change You Can Believe In

Obama email, this morning:

Today, we are filing papers to launch our 2012 campaign.

We’re doing this now because the politics we believe in does not start with expensive TV ads or extravaganzas, but with you — with people organizing block-by-block, talking to neighbors, co-workers, and friends. And that kind of campaign takes time to build.

Reuters, this morning:

Obama amassed a record $750 million as he surged to victory in 2008. His 2012 campaign total is expected to hit $1 billion or more, even without a major Democratic primary opponent or the emergence of a strong Republican contender…

Jim Messina, a former White House deputy chief of staff who will run Obama’s [campaign], has been telling big supporters they will need to collect $350,000 each.

Yes, well, we’ll pitch in where we can. Tell us when you’re within $25 of ten figures.


He’ll have to muddle through somehow without my $50.

Suck it, Reagan 2.

TJ: Don’t look at this immediately after eating lunch (like I did). You might hurl:

Today in Schadenfreude: Looks like the teabaggers with the misspelled signs are going to get their wish to “keep gummint out of Medicare” with Rep. Ryan’s proposal to privatize it.
Congratulations, morans–this is what you voted for. Bwahahahahahaha!

@Mistress Cynica:

My favorite bit about that is that, rather than picking any one of the successful health-care models from around the world (government-provided, single-payer or managed-competition), they’ve chosen to run with the LEAST successful model (Medicare Advantage) which has consistently failed to either deliver care well *or* contain costs well.

Mind you, it’s made insurers a lot of money, so I guess we know which metric the Rethugs are using to decide…
