    Cash-poor Obama says no to Reid

    Geez, wasn’t it yesterday that we were treated to celebratory titles of the “biggest fundraising ever”? Today, a different tune:

    Earlier this month, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid made a personal appeal to Barack Obama: Help me grow the Democrats’ Senate majority by sharing some of the $77 million you’ve got in the bank.

    Obama’s campaign said no.
    Seems this will be a schadenfreude story on so many levels…First, the people who dragged the losing Obama over the finish line get their due. But wait, there’s more:

    Obama raised a record-setting $66 million in August, leaving his campaign with about $77 million in cash now. Because he has turned down public financing, he can keep raising money through Election Day. John McCain, having accepted public financing, can’t do that — but he already has the $84 million in public money in his campaign coffers.
    So, the flip-flopping Obama - the one who once was going to sue McCain for NOT accepting public financing is seeing the result of yet another brilliant judgment. Could this get any better?

    yes, it can:

    More importantly, McCain will get substantial help from the Republican National Committee — which has dramatically outraised its Democratic counterpart — and the Republican Party’s state and local committees.
    You mean the party that didn’t diss half of their base raised more money than the one who did? Who would have thunk it?

    And what about those superdelegates who went for the money instead of the better candidate who could win?

    Democrats on Capitol Hill have grumbled for months that it has been hard to orchestrate campaign events and appearances with the Obama campaign. One Democratic strategist said the campaign frequently turns down requests to have Obama appear with a Democratic incumbent or challenger, and that the events that do happen come only after some “very heavy lifting.”
    Obama is destroying the party. He is a traitor to the party. Will he not also be a traitor to the country?

    I don't know if I would say that... McCain did a lot to piss off Conservatives, but had enough foresight to save face with Palin.

    Ah. That would make McCain a whole lot smarter than Oblahblah.

    Obama has organization in all 50 states and the Dems figure to add some seats this November, Reid just wants some of what he didn't earn.

    Kinda like what SnObama wants all of the U.S. to do. Get something for nothing, ... a cash give away.

    Point of order - your m0ssiah didn't EARN it either. It was donated to him.


    BTW - Does it hurt?
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
