Trouble in Obamaland?

Politico is a useful political journalism site that some conservatives think leans to the left and is biased against them.  So when Politico publishes an e-book on the Obama campaign that emphasizes its disarray, there may be something to it.  Read this account:  Obama campaign roiled by conflict – Glenn Thrush – POLITICO.com.

Here is the e-book, an interesting venture in e-publishing, a bit of  investigative journalism that is longer than an article but shorter than a big book that would lose its currency by the time it would be printed, going for $2.99:  Obama’s Last Stand: POLITICO Playbook 2012 (Kindle Single)

    I suspect that more disarray exists in more campaigns and political administrations of either political side than we probably see in the public. More than once, very credible sources talked about the Clinton and Bush administrations, how there was more bickering and division behind closed doors than was commonly admitted to. So this really isn’t a surprise in one sense.

    I recall reading in the previous election how chaotic and disorganized Obama’s campaign is so this is no surprise. I won’t be reading much into it.

    The use of the e-book format for investigative journalism is an interesting twist. The “inside” look at bickering and division within the Obama camp isn’t surprising to me – it probably exists in all administrations and/or campaigns to some degree. What is more interesting (and perhaps telling) to me is that more of this is being reported in non-conservative outlets. I think that even for what would tend to be more left-leaning media outlets a lot of the bloom is off of the Obama rose.

    In other news, this has to be one of the most boring presidential campaigns in all of history. No one is excited this year, and sure enough no one is exciting.
