    (After all that rumored membership in the Chicago area men's club, means he is really, really, really, one of them, now they can't let him down. For the rest of us, an Obama 2012 victory will likely mean a president for life Barack Obama in 2016. If you liked Jon Corzine, the man who brought us the Democrats solution to the banking crisis leading to Solyndra and the Royal Bank of Scotland bail out as well as the 1.2 billion dollar failure of Corzine's MF Global fund in a crude Bernie Madoff imitation, you'll love the sound of that. Maybe Barry will pardon Jon and Bernie at the end of his first term)


    "The Center for American Progress (CAP), the George Soros funded Democratic messaging machine, runs the aggressive Think Progress website.

    Think Progress is obsessed with attacking the Tea Party movement as racist, the Koch Brothers as evil manipulators, and Clarence Thomas as corrupt. Think Progress blogger Matthew Yglesias helped ignite the false story that Sarah Palin’s electoral map was connected to the Gabrielle Giffords shooting.

    Think Progress is the public face of CAP, dominating news cycles with its relentless attacks on anyone who opposes Obama.

    CAP, which was run for years by former Clinton adviser John Podesta, now is run by a former Obama campaign staffer, Neera Tanden.

    Now the White House is bringing a senior CAP strategist Jennifer Palmieri into the White House to help prepare for the 2012 campaign. As reported by Glenn Thrush at Politico:

    The White House is bringing onboard high-octane Clinton administration veteran Jennifer Palmieri , a top official at the progressive Center for American Progress think tank, to beef up its communications unit heading into 2012, POLITICO has learned.

    Palmieri , who currently serves as president of CAP’s political action fund and as a senior vice president at the parent organization, replaces former deputy communications director Jennifer Psaki, who left for the private sector earlier this fall.

    A senior Obama campaign official now runs CAP and Think Progress. A senior CAP strategist now helps run the 2012 campaign from inside the White House. The full embrace of CAP and Think Progress by the White House is just another sign that 2012 will be the nastiest campaign ever, with the truth the first victim."
