    Obama’s Clinton-inspired 1996 scenario is finished, Jonathan S. Tobin writes at Commentary:

    It was painfully obvious as the controversy lingered throughout the summer that President Obama was working from Bill Clinton’s 1995 playbook when he similarly bluffed a Republican Congress into shutting down the government over a budget standoff. Though Congress’s popularity plunged, the president was disappointed in his hopes that House Speaker John Boehner or Majority Leader Eric Cantor refused to step into the Newt Gingrich clown suits he had prepared for them. Nevertheless, the White House still hoped that lingering disgust for Congress combined with an economic recovery would allow the president to win re-election in the same manner as Clinton did. But if there was any doubt about the inapplicability of the 1996 template, this year it was removed on Friday as another dismal jobs report more or less guaranteed that a summer recovery wasn’t in the cards. The bad economic news isn’t just a setback that will give the Democrats a few shaky news cycles. It is confirmation that the president’s re-election strategy has already failed.

    1984 by George Orwell should be mandatory reading in every school across the United States. The date might have been off, but the story isn’t. Obama’s campaign seems to have taken at least one idea from the Orwell novel in the form of the “Truth Team,” which is nothing more than an online propaganda mill.

    The “Truth Team” is comprised of Keeping the GOP Honest, Attack Watch, and Keeping His Word. They are all inaccurate but the goal isn’t accuracy as the names would imply. The goal is to sell Obama at all costs.

    Attack Watch, the Orwellian “fact checker,” has some new, very glaring lies popping up in the last few days.

    One “Truth” is the claim that Obama supports the coal industry.

    They posted the following paragraph followed by some dubious claims –

    Republicans are dredging up false attacks on the Obama administration, claiming that the Environmental Protection Agency is cracking down on coal. Conjuring up a “war on coal.” Mitt Romney’s campaign and the GOP are trying to convince Americans that President Obama has a “disdain towards coal and coal jobs.”

    Stirring up racial resentment. Creating false narratives about race and politics. Dividing us racially for political purposes. No, I’m not talking about Al Sharpton. I am talking about our Attorney General, head of the the Justice Department, Eric Holder.

    Mr. Holder said Wednesday in a speech to the Council of Black Churches. Voter ID laws and white discrimination, he added, mean that “some of the achievements that defined the civil rights movement now hang in the balance.”

    That’s right. The two most powerful men in America are black, two of the last three Secretaries of State were black, numerous corporate CEOs and other executives are black, and minorities of many races now win state-wide elections in states that belonged to the Confederacy, but the AG implies that Jim Crow is on the cusp of a comeback.

      That’s right. Men holding black batons and wearing uniform like clothes does not intimidate voters, but asking for their driver’s license does? Truly mind boggling. Not to mention that Holder’s insistence that requiring photo ID for voting is pretext for discriminating against blacks and other minorities is completely insulting to blacks. He implies that they cannot figure out how to get an ID.

    Another book that should be required reading is “Atlas Shrugged” by Ayn Rand.
