President's 4th fundraising activity this month

WASHINGTON (CNN) - President Barack Obama headlines a Democratic party event Wednesday night, the second time this week and fourth time this month he's been the main attraction at a party gathering.

The official White House schedule says that the president delivers remarks at a Democratic National Committee event at a hotel in the nation's capital. A source with knowledge of the gathering tells CNN that Obama will speak to members of the DNC's national advisory board and national finance committee.

    Are you folks trying to claim that he isn't suppose to be out working for his party, like every other president in the past has done? We have a little less than 2 years left before we vote again. What is the big deal CNN? 'second time this week, fourth time this month'?!? I don't remember anyone detailing to us count by count of how many REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE events BUSH nor any other FORMER PRESIDENT attended; and even had it been mentioned, we all would've just thought that's what PRESIDENTS do!

    [note from DKL: For some reason I can't fotham, I edited this comment of Clark's inline instead of copying it into a new comment. Thus, I've put excerpts of his comment here, and inserted my own response directly into his comment. This was an error, an I apologize. Unfortunately, the previous comment was unrecoverable.]Clark: Saying Obama was being sexist and derogatory to Palin over the pig ad.It was a comment by Obama to an audience, not an ad. McCain responded with a statement. This was certainly no more unfair than Obama's accusation that McCain believed that people earning up to $5M per year were middle class something that Obama repeated in both his acceptance speech and in campaign ads.The TPM article is part of the Obama playbook on negative ads. Byron York wrote the definitive analysis . Furthermore, if it's based on an ABC News story that has never been retracted, then what made it so very dishonorable when it came from the McCain campaign? Shouldn't have been equally dishonorable when it was reported as hard news from a media outlet?The sex-ed ad is a perfect case study for both McCain failing to define his opponent and McCain being defined by his opponent at the same time(!). McCain has taken the blame for being unfair, when he was actually being pretty straightforward. Obama's response was deceptive and dishonorable, but you'd have never guessed if you don't actually research the matter.Clark: McCain had lots of ineffective negative ads. He tried to link Obama to Ayers and so forth without there being any so what? The attempt was to portray Obama as somehow suspect and a traitor but the best logical argument is that he showed bad judgment but you can't really establish anything.What you're describing is ineffective strategy.
