An Oklahoma-based designer, Jeff Rogers, recently won the Poster Contest sponsored by the OFA campaign. Obama for America invited artists from across the country to volunteer their creativity to support President Obama’s jobs plan and the campaign by entering our Art Works poster design contest.
The Obama Campaign announced that Jeff’s design was selected on Thursday, December 22nd.
Out of thousands of submissions Jeff’s design was one of the top 3 selected. He will receive a signed print of his work by the President. You can view his poster and buy a print along with the other two winning designs at the online campaign store.
Beyond the bleep, we think the rest of this video is worth watching, too—particularly if you are a fan of electoral strategy (and/or maps). Jim Messina talks you through five pathways we’ve got to 270 electoral votes in 2012.
Good to know Newt “She’s not young enough or pretty enough to be the wife of a President, and besides, she has cancer” Gingrich is a reformed man! Though I must admit, I’m even more impressed with this radio host’s pledge to give Newt $1 million if he drops out of the race.
“The average income of the top 1 percent has gone up by more than 250 percent to $1.2 million per year … For the top one hundredth of 1 percent, the average income is now $27 million per year. The typical CEO who used to earn about 30 times more than his or her worker now earns 110 times more. And yet, over the last decade the incomes of most Americans have actually fallen by about 6 percent.”

The U.S. is ranked as the 23rd most perceived corrupt country in the world.
The rankings, created through opinion surveys conducted each year, give each of the 183 countries on the list a corruption perceptions index score between zero, the most corrupt, and 10, the least corrupt. With a score of 7.1, the United States — which fell from its rank of 22nd last year as trust in Congress hit an all-time low — is seen as barely less corrupt than France, Saint Lucia and Uruguay.
Ever wonder what NASA’s annual budget looks like?
The space agency will get $17.8 billion — that’s $648 million less than last year’s funding and $924 million below what the President had asked for. But it’s still better than the $16.8 billion proposed earlier this year by the House of Representatives.
To most people, $17.8 billion is a huge amount of money. And it absolutely is, but not when you’re NASA and have multiple programs and missions to fund.
Answer: Not to the shuttle program. We have wars to fight and banks to bailout, people!
