Daily Fix, Aug 15


*Obama takes shots at Congress on his taxpayer-funded Midwest tour. “If they don’t start paying attention,” he told supporters, “then they’re not going to be in office and we will have a new Congress in there that will start paying attention to what is going on all across America.” Um…really? I thought we WERE paying attention *cough* November 2010 *cough* Oh, and 32 months into his presidency, he announced that he will be putting forth a plan to “boost the economy, create jobs and control the deficit…. The Hill

*And speaking of paying attention to Obama, his approval rating is now at an all-time low of 39%. Elections do indeed have consequences. So does failure to lead. USA Today

*Meanwhile, White House spokesman Jay Carney insisted that the luxury bus tour to Iowa, Minnesota and Illinois had nothing to do with Michele Bachmann or the Iowa straw poll, or any GOPer at all. It also has nothing to do with campaigning, hence the taxpayer funding. Yeah, right, Mr. President. Next you’ll be selling us beach front property in states #51-#57. The Hill

*Tim Pawlenty dropped out of the Presidential race after a disappointing and distant 3rd place finish in Saturday’s straw poll. His campaign staffers were immediately snatched up by other campaigns. His New Hampshire state director, for example, got nabbed by the Huntsman campaign. Union Leader Aren’t those phone calls kinda awkward? I mean really….

    I hope that fellow who went to the Huntsman campaign is keeping his resume up to date. By the way, somebody actually tied Pawlenty, so they could have declared Pawlenty in fourth place. Meanwhile, Gov. Perry scored big for someone not on the ballot and campaigning from over 1,000 miles away.

    All this excitement and it’s still one year to go for the Conventions with the Alaska wild card yet to be played.

    Has anyone in the RNC thought of launching a “Truth Squad”? I remember a multi-year campaign where we made sure a certain Democrat “Mayor of the House” always had people asking those questions in the town hall meetings. That was back in the 1990s.
