Update: Corruption takes a hit – Richard Daley announces he won’t run for reelection. Rahm Emanuel sees a way out of the sinking White House. Even in Chicago the people are gathering the pitchforks. Rahm better watch out.
Post Labor Day – We’re now in full blown campaign season. No more excuses of “it’s too early”. For Barack Obama and his Dimocrats “it’s too late”. Today we will mostly discuss all that money Barack Obama has left over from his 2008 campaign along with the backstabbing by Obama we learned about this weekend.
If you want dog commentary you’ll have to read this past weekends comments section to get the “full Monty” (and never-before-on-this-site videos of dogs and puppies) on Obama’s self-pitying attempt to get his former supporters back on board. Obama whined that nameless persons “talk about me like a dog” in order to hook his rabid but slowly detoxing fan club of Hopium Guzzlers to flash back to that old cult feeling and vote in November and “win one for the simper“.
Of course one can’t rule out Obama doing a Nixon (again). The psychologically damaged Nixon signed a letter to his mother as “your faithful dog”. Perhaps Obama is turning openly and dramatically into Richard Nixon’s sweaty upper lip.
What Obama said however, was an insult to dogs because dogs are “loyal, honorable, reliable“. Obama is much worse than a dog. Case in point – money.
As Jeswezey pointed out in the comments. Obama has tons of money left over from his 2008 campaign. “That could go a long way, but he’ll keep that for himself in 2012.”
Perhaps Obama won’t run in 2012. Obama might keep all that cash for himself and pay Michelle a bag full. Federal law is so porous and has many fig leaves which Obama could use to keep himself on duty free vacations for years.
Obama has tons of money he can donate to Dimocrats this November (an estimated $30 million). Obama Dimocrats face death, doom, and destruction this November. Obama Dimocrats better start to yell “SHOW ME THE MONEY BARACK!”
In January 2009 Obama donated a paltry 3.5 million of his stash in order to pay off some campaign debt from the DCCC. But what about now? Obama Dimocrats are in trouble. They need money. Barack “SHOW ME THE MONEY!”
But the money story is only part of the back stabbing which is Barack Obama’s treachery. Recall all the stories about Obama assuring Dimocrats in congress to give him what he wanted and he would save them when the time came? Remember how he promised to campaign for them? He said he would not sleep in order to help them win. Money was promised. All the help in the world was promised.
Remember the Obama Death Threat? It was “You Got Me”: In our continuing series “Mistake In ’08” we quoted from an article called “The Clinton Voters Jump Ship“:
“But it also suggests something more, that the Democratic party is now the party of Obama, for good and for ill. While the president is no Jacksonian, his party has many in its ranks. Democratic officeholders should be concerned about their voters fleeing not just from Obama but from their party as well. The president may be in the process of trimming the Democratic base back into something that looks an awful lot like his own primary base.
A few weeks ago Representative Marion Berry, a Jacksonian from Arkansas’s First District, recounted an exchange he had with the president. Asked how he was going to prevent a midterm disaster on the scale of 1994, Obama replied, “Well, the big difference here and in ’94 was you’ve got me.” Which may be precisely the problem.”
If you remember all those promises from Barack Obama you will also remember how “Barack Obama threatens to withdraw support from wavering Democrats – Barack Obama has said he will not campaign for any Democratic congressmen who fails to support health care reform” That’s right, in March 2010 Barack Obama made threats against those who opposed his demands:
“The president will refuse to make fund-raising visits during November elections to any district whose representative has not backed the bill.
A one-night presidential appearance can bring in hundreds of thousands of dollars in funds which would otherwise take months to accumulate through cold-calling by campaign volunteers.
Mr Obama’s threat came as the year-long debate over his signature domestic policy entered its final week.”
Obama promised to help those who voted for his scams and to punish those who did not vote for his scams. But watch your backs Dimocrats, Obama’s in town and never has our mantra been so true:
Obama simply cannot be trusted. Obama cannot be trusted on any issue. Obama cannot be trusted by his friends. Obama cannot be trusted by his enemies. Obama cannot be trusted.
The proof of the Obama treachery came this past weekend in the New York Times:
DEMOCRATS PLAN POLITICAL TRIAGE TO RETAIN HOUSE
As Democrats brace for a November wave that threatens their control of the House, party leaders are preparing a brutal triage of their own members in hopes of saving enough seats to keep a slim grip on the majority.
In the next two weeks, Democratic leaders will review new polls and other data that show whether vulnerable incumbents have a path to victory. If not, the party is poised to redirect money to concentrate on trying to protect up to two dozen lawmakers who appear to be in the strongest position to fend off their challengers.
“We are going to have to win these races one by one,” said Rep. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, conceding that the party would ultimately cut loose members who had not gained ground.”
What happened to those promises of support from Obama? Apparently the only criterion to get money now is whether or not you can win. If you are a, hated by the DailyKooks, Bluedog and it looks like you might win you will get money. If you are a liberal/progressive and in trouble – no soup for you. If you opposed Obama but it looks like you might win, you’ll get money. If you voted down the line with Barack Obama but you are in trouble, you are also out of luck because treacherous Obama cannot be trusted to keep his word.
No one is disputing the obvious need for “triage” by Obama’s sad band of Dimocrats. They are about to lose big so they will cannibalize each other. But what about those Obama promises and threats? “Obama cannot be trusted by friend nor foe.”
“With the midterm campaign entering its final two months, Democrats acknowledged that several races could quickly move out of their reach, including re-election bids by Reps. Betsy Markey of Colorado, Tom Perriello of Virginia, Mary Jo Kilroy of Ohio and Frank Kratovil Jr. of Maryland, whose districts were among the 55 Democrats won from Republicans in the last two election cycles.
Reps. John M. Spratt Jr. of South Carolina, chairman of the Budget Committee, and Earl Pomeroy of North Dakota, who is seeking a 10th term, are among senior Democrats who have appeared to gain little ground in the summer months in the toxic political environment. A sputtering economy and discontent with Washington have created a high sense of voter unease that has also put control of the Senate in question.”
To hell with the Mary Jo Kilroy’s who voted for Barack Obama’s interests and not the interests of their constituents. They are about to be stabbed in the back by a long Chicago knife. And it gets worse. Barack Obama has tens of millions in campaign loot, but instead of Obama giving money, it will be the suckers made to cough it up:
“To hold the line against Republicans, the House speaker, Nancy Pelosi, issued an urgent plea for members in safe districts to help their endangered colleagues by contributing money. She called out to Democrats who were delinquent on paying their party dues and instructed members with no re-election worries to tap into a combined $218 million from their campaign accounts to help save their majority.
“We need to know your commitment,” Pelosi wrote to lawmakers last week in a private letter, demanding that they call her within 72 hours to explain how they plan to help.
She added, “The day after the election, we do not want to have any regrets.“[snip]
The sharp messages underscore the decreasing array of options facing Democrats as they try to overcome the party’s declining standing. It is an open question whether voters will find the back-and-forth exchanges persuasive or whether some have reached the point where they are no longer listening to Democratic messages[snip].
While several Democratic candidates have more money in the bank than their rivals, Democrats fear that outside Republican advocacy groups will step in and fill the gap. They are watching to see if interest groups and other constituencies increase their donations to Republicans in the hopes of winning access and influence should the House change hands.”
What about Barack Obama’s tens of millions of dollars? “SHOW ME THE MONEY BARACK!”
Republicans are raising money for Republicans/ Barack Obama has cash but won’t cough it up. “SHOW ME THE MONEY BARACK!” The Republicans are doing right by their candidates:
“While Democrats have all but given up hope that the political or economic climate will improve substantially before the election, they are not conceding control of the House. Several party leaders and strategists privately acknowledge that about 20 seats are already probably lost, but they believe they can build a fire wall around seats in the Northeast and in other pockets across the country where Republicans have nominated untested candidates.
The battle is boiling down to a question of mathematics and difficult decisions for Democrats. By the best-case Democratic calculation, party strategists believe that Republicans must beat about 35 sitting Democrats if the parties split 16 highly-competitive open seats and Democrats win four of five Republican seats they see as within their reach in Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois and Louisiana.[snip]
“In 2008, there was this sense of hope and this sense of being able to change the world,” said Rep. Zack Space, D-Ohio. “A lot of that enthusiasm doesn’t exist now, and I think a lot of that is a result of having been in a recession for two years.”
Good-bye Zack, you’re about to be launched into outer Space. You believed Barack Obama and now you will suffer the consequences. Ohio is about to turn deep red and Zack and Mary Joe along with Paula Brooks and the rest of the wannabees are about to drown in the wave.
“As you study the polls you realize that he lacks both the will and the capacity to help you survive, you regret your support for him and you do not want to be seen in his presence on the campaign trail because he is a lightening rod, and you are the one who will be electrocuted.[snip]
And they [sic] you get the call from some staff worm who works for Van Hollen who tells you sorry Charlie, the party is over, you aint gonna win, so for the good of Obama, Pelosi and your beloved party fork over all your money so you can save the democrats we have decided to save. You on the other and are expendable.”
There was no “Recovery Summer” even though Barack Obama promised one. Now Obama Dimocrats will experience a “Republican Recovery”.
Obama Dimocrats you killed the party of FDR. Now, you will die.
“Republicans are heading into the final weeks of the midterm campaign with the political climate highly in their favor, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. Americans are increasingly frustrated by a lack of economic progress, deeply dissatisfied with the federal government and critical of President Obama’s leadership.
For the first time in more than four years, Republicans run about evenly with Democrats on the basic question of which party they trust to handle the nation’s biggest problems. Among registered voters, 40 percent say they have more confidence in Democrats and 38 percent say they have more trust in Republicans. Three months ago, Democrats had a 12-point advantage.
On the economy, 43 percent of voters side with Republicans when it comes to dealing with financial problems, while 39 percent favor Democrats. (Fifteen percent say they trust neither party more.) Although not a significant lead for Republicans, this marks the first time they have had any numerical edge on the economy dating to 2002. In recent years, Democrats have typically held double-digit advantages on the issue.”
There’s lots of good news for Republicans in the Washington Post/ABC News poll. But most of the data pales in significance to this finding:
“Among all voters, 47 percent say they would back the Republican in their congressional district if the election were held now, while 45 percent would vote for the Democrat. Any GOP advantage on this question has been rare in past years – and among those most likely to vote this fall, the Republican advantage swells to 53 percent to the Democrats’ 40 percent.”
It is the likely voters that matter now, not registered voters. And 53% to 40% spells death, doom, and destruction to Obama Dimocrats about to be drowned in the coming wave. Today, post Labor Day, the coming wave is as official as it gets. It is most definitely a wave we crave.
Barack Obama spent Labor Day pushing schemes that have no chance of enactment and blaming the opposition. (And today Obama’s former guy, Peter Orzag, has come out for keeping the Bush tax cuts which demonstrates Obama and his crew don’t know what they have done or what they are doing or what they will do.) Obama whined about being called a dog but that is so unfair to dogs:
“If by “like a dog” Obama means that every one year of his presidency feels like seven, I’m forced to agree with him. Otherwise it’s a little insulting, if for no other reason than that there are many breeds of dogs that could run the country at a lower unemployment rate.“
“This is another example of this administration acting for the appearance of activity. It doesn’t have a clue what to do. It just threw a half a trillion dollars at the first stimulus. As we saw earlier in the show, almost 60% of Americans believe it did absolutely nothing. And they have no ideas. The economy is still in a ditch so they come up with a mini-stimulus… I like the way the president announces we hear this is going to be a six-year plan. Even Lenin had the modesty to stop at five.“
Obama has tons of money to donate to those he promised to help and protect if only they would vote for him. But Obama won’t produce on his promises. Obama is treacherous.
Obama is worse than a dog. We’ve known that for quite some while now. Obama Dimocrats are about to find out how much worse than a dog Obama is.
