He has run into a brick wall and needs to raise some cash by Monday
Valley of the Shadow is a good blog and Joe is a good guy if you can help him that would be very nice.
Yesterday Robert Spencer spoke at the Jewish Federation of New Hampshire in an event sponsored by New Hampshire for Israel. The topic was: “Is Resistance to Jihad Terror a Right-Wing Issue?” 120 people showed up for the event.
Robert Spoke to me before the event:
He brought a fair supply of books
And signed plenty when he was done
I shot parts of his speech, in six parts:
As political fundraisers go, it’s set to be an “Avengers”-sized blockbuster: One hundred and fifty wealthy Democrats will dine with President Obama at George Clooney’s Studio City home Thursday night, at a party that organizers expect to gross $15 million for the president’s re-election campaign — the highest amount ever raised at such an event.
High-profile guests including Robert Downey Jr., Tobey Maguire, Barbra Streisand, director-producer J.J. Abrams, producer Nina Jacobson, Creative Artists Agency partner Bryan Lourd and ICM President Chris Silbermann are attending the dinner, which was organized by DreamWorks Animation Chief Executive Jeffrey Katzenberg and his political advisor, Andy Spahn.
A number of gay and progressive donors, unsolicited, have indicated to us that they aren’t considering requests to donate to the Obama SuperPac because of the president’s refusal to the sign the order. And those are high-dollar asks, some in the seven digits. We have heard from at least half a dozen major gay and progressive donors that they stand united with us.
The Washington Post noted on Tuesday that roughly 20 percent of Obama top campaign bundlers—who are responsible for arranging $500,000 and up—“publicly identified themselves as gay.”
That suggests that for the Billion dollar man it’s all about the Benjamins. Stacy McCain:
What is pathetic, as I say, is that everybody knows Obama could not have won even the Iowa caucus in 2008 if he had been campaigning as openly pro-gay-marriage — that is to say, clearly to the left of Hillary Clinton on this issue.
In order to enhance his “viability,” the media bit their tongues and looked the other way while Obama engaged in a flimflam charade of moderation. He would have carried on that dishonest scam as long as necessary to win the general election, except that his big-money gay donors threatened to cut him off. And what his media idolators now will celebrate as another “gutsy call” never would have happened otherwise!
To nobody’s surprise the MSM is playing up the “guts” , “sincere” while noting that every time it’s been on the ballot Gay Marriage has lost. As for the polls let me point out that the Democrats in Massachusetts are still blocking a vote on the issue
There will be some very interesting sermons in Black Churches this weekend but in terms of uniting and energizing his base Obama has given Mitt Romney exactly what he needs.
Granted every day this is the topic it is a day that’s not talking about the economy and Obama’s record, which certainly helps the president, but I can’t wait to see what happens when the president is asked:
That’s gonna be fun.
If Obama has endorsed federalism and believes that states have the right to define marriage, then why doesn’t he support the ability of states to extricate themselves from Obamacare? Why don’t states have the right to dictate their immigration laws? And does he “personally” believe that states should be able decide the issue of abortion? Roe v. Wade exists, but so does the Defense of Marriage Act.
That’s a good question.
