Obama in White Face on Republican PowerPoint

Top Republicans now open about calling President Obama a Socialist, according to a report from National Public Radio.

The Republican National Committee plans to fuel fundraising and fire up their base with a campaign that will aggressively play up fear of President Obama and concerns about socialism. That's according to a confidential PowerPoint slideshow.

The document not only contained the strategy-of-fear suggestions and additional unflattering caricatures of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. It also advised that ego-driven donors could be curried with access to events and party big-wigs and cheap giveaways.

The presentation includes a page called "The Evil Empire." It features several caricatures: Nancy Pelosi as Cruella De Vil, Harry Reid as Scooby Doo, and President Obama portrayed in white face paint like the joker from "Batman."

You have to identify something and label it so you can talk about it, and 'socialism' is a good scare word. ... If it's socialism, let's call it that. If not, let's call it something else.
Revelations that the Republican National Committee urged fundraisers to shake the money trees by playing on fears of President Obama and "socialism" have ignited a classic Washington kerfuffle.
Democrats have dubbed the fundraising plan, contained in a private GOP document, "RNC Fear-Gate."

They have accused Republicans of adopting extreme Tea Party talking points and called on GOP leaders to repudiate the strategy.

A handful of Republicans have labeled the document "unhelpful."

The document, in the form of a PowerPoint presentation, was presented by RNC Finance Director Rob Bickhart at a fundraisers' retreat in Florida last month. Its existence was reported this week by Politico, a Washington-based political publication.

Reed Whipple may close

The Reed Whipple Cultural Center may be on the block, and with it the future of the Rainbow Theater Company and Las Vegas Youth Orchestra, according to a page one story in this morning's Las Vegas Review Journal. City budget cuts mean programs and facilities within city government will have to be closed, but does not specify Reed Whipple as a definite closure. Reed Whipple is in an underserved area of town. Also under consideraiton are the nature of the rehearsal, storage, shop and performance space needs. That leaves few, if any, options for moving the two groups. It seems that in this deep recession year, the value of the land may be greater than the value of the arts.
