John Hagner and James Carville, both political strategist for the Democrats, are warning us of dire consequences.
"I wish I had good news for you.
I want to tell you that President Obama has a second term in the bag. I want to tell you that the Koch Brothers are giving up their plot to buy the election.
But here’s where things really stand: We’re gonna have to go through hell and high-water to win this damn thing. It’s gonna be hard. Every big-oil billionaire and Republican Super PAC is throwing the kitchen sink at President Obama.
If we don’t fight back, it’ll be over long before November."
"With just 101 days until the election, this news is a warning sign:
1. This week, Romney and the GOP outspent us by $7.7 million (National Journal, 7/27)
2. In the past 30 days, polls show Romney has eliminated President Obama’s lead (Gallup, 7/25)
We can’t panic. Just because Mitt Romney has more billionaires doesn’t mean we can’t take him on. But if Democrats don’t pick up the pace now—101 days out—we’re paving the road for a Romney administration.
Undecided voters don’t make up their minds on Election Day. They start making their picks now. If we wait to stand up for President Obama and progressives, it will be too late."
Lest you think I am just picking on the poor Democrats, let me assure you I am not. The GOP is just as bad.
Zac Moffat sent out an email that says:
"President Obama recently said: "If you've got a business, you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen."
Mitt Romney understands that we have to celebrate people who start enterprises and employ other people rather than devalue them. Success is not the result of government, it is the result of hard-working individuals who take risks, create dreams, and build lives for themselves and for their families.
Stand with Mitt today and stand up for Americans who work hard to build their businesses, their homes, their families and their communities."
Oh, wait, that one is calling for you to donate. But they're not whining about raising money because the other guy is raising a bunch of money.
Alright, how about this one:
"Monday's Wall Street Journal had it right: “Unless fundraising picks up, the Obama campaign may enter the season’s final stretch…pulling out of swing states.”
Romney has outraised President Obama two months running, and now they’re polling neck and neck.
***Swing State Polling Update***
Virginia: Obama 44 Romney 44 (Quinnipiac, 7/19)
Michigan: Obama 44 Romney 45 (Mitchell Research, 7/25)
Ohio: Obama 48 Romney 45 (Purple Strategies, 7/16)
With just over 100 days until the election, Democrats need to pick up the pace—now—or attacks on President Obama will go unanswered in battlegrounds like Ohio and Virginia. The July FEC deadline is just 5 days away, and Democrats must raise an additional $600,000 or we could give Republicans an insurmountable lead. Can you kick in $5?"
Oh, no wait, that one is from Guy Cecil of the DCCC.
Anyway, the point is, they both are demanding money so they can win the election.
They want money from YOU so they can win the job that YOU will be voting them into. Can you imagine going to Walmart for a job and asking the hiring manager to give you money so you can print out a resume and pay for your gas to the interview?
Pretty much the same thing here. Except these oil salesmen actually get you to give them the money. How silly is that? Obama has even said not spend your food stamp money on food but send it to his campaign. Well, thats what someone told me. I can't believe the President of the United States would really say such a thing. But you know what he did say? Send him your graduation present money, your birthday present money. You know, the money for all the things you were going to spend on birthday or graduation presents. Just forget about those things and send it to him.
So I have a request for all of you who are willing to send these lame politicians your hard earned money. Don't send it to them. Make them prove to you they deserve to be elected, not that they can run an expensive political campaign.
Instead, send it to a food pantry. Send your money to a food pantry and all the people who are out of work and struggling to feed their families will be grateful. But then, if you are struggling yourself why the hell would you send one penny to those in power who are not really doing anything that actually helps you? So here's a better thought. Volunteer at a food pantry. Then you can see for first hand if these dimwits deserve your vote.
They are spending millions . . . BILLIONS (like they did in 2008), to get your vote. One guy says the other guy is trying to "buy" the election. Sounds to me like they both are. They ALL are.
Time to let these career politicians know that it is not supposed to be a career. Its supposed to be a public service experience. They shouldn't be making money from being in government. They should make some moeny because they have families to feed and bills to pay. Some extra because they need to travel back and forth a couple of times a year. But not the $172,000 a year a Congressman makes (even after they serve - thats what they get as retirement pay . . . nice, huh?). But you know, something. But they shouldn't be there 20, 30 40 plus years.
They are not going to vote themselves term limits either. We have to do THAT with our votes. We need to stop being lazy wimps and vote these leeches out!
Aw hell, you probably won't listen to me. But listen to your own common sense. Think about what I have said and make up your own mind. Stop listening to the insipid commercials that YOU have paid for by people who just want your money AND your vote. Either way you fall on this argument is not important to me. What matters to me is that you come by your decision using your own brain. It really bothers me that so many people in America have become SHEEP, listening to the SPIN of people who only have their own best interest at heart. Either way, this is just me, Thinking Out Loud.
Have a great day.
