Corn on Hardball: What’s Obama’s Campaign Pitch?


Mother Jones Washington bureau chief David Corn and the Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza joined host Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s Hardball to discuss how President Obama is trying to shift the election conversation into a debate about ideas and ideology. When Obama formally launched his reelection campaign on Saturday, his selling point was this: America’s on the right track, but there’s more to do—and Romney isn’t the man to do it.

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
