Evening Wrap Up with Obama, Jesse (sigh) Jackson, Iran and those Obama Girls

Well, here we go again.

Jesse Jackson, the Reverend Jesse Jackson, unleashes on Fox News. Jackson was not aware that the microphone and camera was still running during break and let his loose lips, sink his ship.

For the record, O'Reilly said, yes this was on O'Reilly's show, that there was more negative statements that Jackson said, but that he was not there to sink or destroy Jesse Jackson.

My take, the only one hurt by this is Jesse Jackson, himself. I don't know about you, but if I am going on any show especially on FOX NEWS, when they say break I would have NOTHING TO SAY. I did watch the O'Reilly Factor's take on this and Bill O'Reilly tried to make this a rivalry thing, but after watching, it is a wash.

Lastly, if Jesse Jackson want any relevance he can start by keeping on message and drinking a cup of STFU.

Obama Donors Aren’t Rushing to Aid Clinton

Really? Wow? What's next?

This has been talked up and down the teevee by the cable desks clerks all day long. The crux of the article is that Obama donors are not thinking about Hillary Clinton or her debt. And should we? Really, should we?

Many from this article feel that they have no responsibility to help pay for a candidate's campaign debt, when she knew that she could not mathematically win the nomination in March. Then many are angered about how the Clinton Campaign was run and that much of the debt is owed to Mark Penn. Penn, if you did not know, is opening a firm with former Bush Aide, Karen Hughes. Ummm, yeah. And frankly, many are stating "why give to a campaign that knew it would not win, but purposely ran their debt up."

Ok, I understand all that, which is partly why Obama will not send a money email out on behalf of Clinton to his 2M donor base. Many probably, no will cut him a new hide, if he did. for real.

My take, Hillary Clinton is at the bottom of the totem pole for any money. The reality is this, we are still in primary mode (yes, primary mode until the general election), meaning we need to still raise money for Barack Obama through the general election. His campaign costs run around 1M a day, but probably less with the primaries over, but none the less we need to keep funding him. To me, the most important fundraising is for the Obama Campaign and the DNC, sorry Hillary, but it is, what it is. Especially when you have to read stuff like this.

Oh, I love the interview with the Obama Girlz. Watching Miss Melia and Miss Sasha, you can just tell they were eager and LOVING IT, to death.

But, Barack Obama made a statement that he regretted putting his girls on television. Personally, I think this was one of the best laid back family interviews that I have seen in quite a while.

Now, I understand not making it a habit, but Barack, they made you look like a real family man. Yes, I said real family man, since some believe he lives under a rock. And it soften you up, plus the radiant look on Michelle's face with the girls is priceless.

My take, don't do it often, but I would like another family interview before November. Hey, they are the Obama Girlz!!!!
