NYC Letter: The Genius Of Campaign Barry -- How're We Doing?
Day 1,233 of CHOPE
D-minus 223 Days
After 15 months of nonstop e-begs, discounted presidential raffles, cheap merchandise, swag and
one two three four* five or more campaign slogans (They're legion! There was also this and this and these.), and having made a "dry run" in Wisconsin -- after all that, Campaign Barry wants to know how you think they're doing.
June 10, 2012 (The Hill) - Respondents are...prompted to "rate the performance of the campaign so far" on a scale with 7 for "great" and 1 for "poor" and to describe their enthusiasm for the president and his campaign on a scale from "very enthusiastic" to "not enthusiastic at all."
Before you sharpen that red pencil, Campaign Barry provides a big hint.
June 9, 2012 (WaEx) - President Obama's campaign warned supporters that the president could lose his reelection bid in an attempt to convince donors to contribute more money. ... The urgent message is the latest in a series of increasingly-dire fundraising efforts."If the general election were held today, President Obama would lose to Mitt Romney," campaign manager Jim Messina wrote supporters in March. Yesterday, Messina announced that "we got beat" in another message built around Romney's May edge in fundraising.
Campaign Barry thinks Mr. Romney might win. They're pitching that to supporters. [Pause.] The campaign admits it's getting beat. [Pause.] They've muddled the campaign with over half a dozen slogans. [Pause.] Wisconsin was a fail. [Pause.] So how do you think they think they're doing? Why do you think they're asking you?
We rate the campaign's performance so far a solid "1".
Keep up the good work, Campaign Barry!
A good solid B+ for "out of ideas".Posted by Damian at June 10, 2012 06:00 PM
