Hot Tips for the Obama Campaign

Truth Partisan's picture

BE PREPARED!

The press is going to ask YOU and YOUR EMPLOYEES questions!!

Really!

And this will be part of the job you're running for too!

If you and your campaign say 'you'll have to look into that,' it means the same as no comment!!

HAVE REAL REASONS READY! THAT YOU CAN JUSTIFY USING IDEAS YOU SAY YOU SUPPORT!

When you break campaign pledges--especially ones that you ridiculed your rival for at length, you have to do a better job of explaining--like, um, REASONS for switching that are NOT just total self-interest. The job is for serving the public, right?

IF YOU SAY YOU ARE FIXING A BAD VOTE, WORK ON IT!

That back to the future promises stuff--'I will be dealing with this in future in the Senate'--much more effective if you have a bill ready to file. Because we all knew that something like this was likely to happen...You could use some of your many employees for this!!

Please note: linky goodness will be supplied here shortly. Feel free to supply links, or please, supply your own Hot Tips for Mr. Obama and his employees!

Please comment back when you've added the linky goodness.

One of our Senior Fellows has (directly or indirectly) laid down the challenge to have a high standard in posting about this issue. Not that we shouldn't always have a high standard.

For one thing, I hope your linky goodness will prove your point that Obama did in fact shame Hillary on points relevant to campaign financing.

Also, on general principles, I don't think it's unreasonable to expect that new guest posters here bring the substance before cutting loose on the off-the-cuff commentary and snark.

Actually I had wanted to do that but couldn't figure out how. In spite of my hope for contributions, I will hold off next time.

Thanks for being around, VastLeft. It was a blow when we thought you were gone.

I will link the post up now.

This is a misunderstanding, due, I am entirely sure, to myself:

"For one thing, I hope your linky goodness will prove your point that Obama did in fact shame Hillary on points relevant to campaign financing."

I meant the change in his NAFTA position this week. I will clarify that.

And no, I'm not talking about the grill.
