Obama having trouble raising money

March 19, 2012
By

Hope-n-change was so much easier:

The Republican National Committee is chuckling this morning, pointing out that the latest fundraising numbers, for the month of February, show the Obama campaign, DNC, Victory Fund, and State Victory Fund raised a total of $45 million, down from the $56.78 million Obama raised alone in February 2008. They eagerly point out the figure is despite Obama holding more fundraisers in the month of February than any month since announcing for reelection.

    “And this from someone who salivates every time a doorbell rings.”

    Attilla, you shouldn’t be so hard on yourself. You might think, act and even look like a dog but I’m pretty sure you’re human….at least in the most generous interpretation of the term.

    P. Tillman is himself living proof that some modern humans interbred with Neanderthals.

    and even funner taunting your sockpuppet immediately following

    Hilarious. Yet you don’t have the courage to name that sock puppet. Here’s a hint: I don’t have sock puppets.

    Keep dancing, anon un-RINO.

    Cal
    I suggested a way that you post a list of organizations that perform the worthy work in which you participate. One of which might be the one you support. Poli has a reasonably large following, so by doing this you could gain contributions to the organization that you support and other organizations that you think are worth while.

    Yet all we see are crickets. I ask myself this question. If you are willing to spend a week volunteering at this organization, why are you not willing to spend an hour to post a half dozen examples which may or may not include that one?

    I submit that is a reasonable question. Were the shoe on the other foot, would you not think the same?

    unclefred,

    Really? Do you think someone like Cal who is routinely reviled around here for his comments and views is going to share personal biographical information with the emotionally unstable and irrational people who write on this blog? I would be even more worried about the lurkers who come here just to keep up on the news…

    Ask yourself how may posters, including yourself, have revealed ANY similar information here in the past? I can’t even get most to say what line of work they’re in, let alone specific orgs. Of course if you’re unemployed I can see why you’d want to keep that info to yourself.

    unclefred, I replied to your post on the previous thread. I will elaborate some more here. Wounded Warrior Project is the largest and, as far as I know, the most respected. I am concerned though, that their website seems to be one large donation button. Project Healing Waters is another nice organization. Team River Runner another excellent group. Google, “2012 Warrior Games”, great stuff.

    There are many others, but as I said, I don’t know them well enough to say if they truly provide a segue for wounded vets, or are merely providing fun, all-expenses paid vacations.

    Still lying, eh troll?

    Yeah, you’re a moral degenerate, alright.

    Wonderful thing, immediate queries. That’s why cops use them, right there on the spot. You can always pick out a liar like you.

  8. A noted anthropologist on March 21, 2012 at 9:04 am

    Actually, the posts of both Cal and P. Tillman substantiate that some modern humans are descended from Neanderthals–diseased, sociopathic Neanderthals with a penchant for underaged male goats.

    You already know thus considerably on the subject of this subject, made me personally imagine it from a lot of various angles. Its like women and men aren’t involved until it is something to accomplish with Lady gaga! Your personal stuffs great. Always take care of it up!

  10. anonymous un-RINO on March 21, 2012 at 12:13 pm

    Stay thirsty, my friend.

    stampanti a toner’s post is proof positive of the adage that it is terrible to lose one’s mind.

  12. flcon on March 22, 2012 at 6:30 am

    you would have to be nucking futs to post any personal info on this blog. Cal not posting any personal info is one of the few acts of sanity I’ve viewed on this blog.

  13. anonymous un-RINO on March 22, 2012 at 7:44 am

    Actually, that troll’s lies are some of the most morally degenerate acts ever viewed on this blog.

    We concur.

  15. Mad Dog's friends on March 22, 2012 at 12:33 pm

    We feel sorry for Mad Dog, actually. The guy still eats his mom’s Campbell’s Tomato Soup and Saltines for lunch. Every day.

    Obama Changes We Can Really Believe In?

    I haven’t had the pleasure of visiting the White House in decades so I can’t personally attest to all of the following details on recent alterations in America’s executive mansion but they are interesting, to say the least.

    For example, has anyone noticed that our president no longer conducts his rare press conferences with the traditional trappings of American flags in the background?

    Instead, a bright yellow curtain replete with what some people believe are Arabic symbols now decorates the press room, along with Obama’s trusty teleprompters, of course, without which he tends to put his foot in his mouth.

    And, has anyone noticed that the decor at the White House has radically changed since the Obama clan occupied 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue?

    The Oval Office is now almost devoid of the traditional display of American red, white, and blue. It has been replaced with what appears to be middle eastern wallpaper, drapes, and decor and the hallway Obama uses to talk to the press now features middle eastern-style chairs, drapes, etc.

    And, has anyone noticed that Obama seems more Islamic than he seems American?

    It’s understandable, actually, since his paternal heritage is Muslim, all his Kenyan relatives are Muslims, his mother married two Muslims, and he spent years of his childhood in Muslim Indonesia where he was partially educated in a Muslim madrassa and he diligently studied the Quran.

    Before any White House alterations were made, surely the POTUS had extensive input from his lovely, style-conscious FLOTUS who, only a few years ago discovered she was proud of her country. She must be even more proud of her husband’s Muslim roots.

    Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama must also be tickled pink that America’s White House now reflects both her tastes and her hubby’s documented Islamic affiliations even though those tastes and affiliations give rise to suspicions that the Obamas aren’t all we have been led to believe in.

    Is Barack Hussein Obama a Muslim at heart? . . . (See pictures and read more at http://www.genelalor.com/blog1/?p=18390.)

    Ah, the poor trolls. When will they learn that Mad Dog always has the last word on a thread?

  18. Mad Dog's mom on March 22, 2012 at 5:29 pm

    Oh Mad Dog, honey dearest, don’t you know that the trolls make fun of you?

  19. Mad Dog on March 22, 2012 at 6:24 pm

    Ah, the poor trolls. When will they learn that Mad Dog always has the last word on a thread? Isn’t doing the same thing and expecting a different outcome a good operational definition of insanity?

  20. David Axelpud on March 23, 2012 at 11:44 pm

    Haahaaahahaha

    Cal got shamed off this thread. Busted for being a liar.

    Funny.

  21. Mad Dog on March 24, 2012 at 2:18 pm

    That doe snot alter the fact that Mad Dog always has the last word.

  22. Mad Dog on March 24, 2012 at 2:19 pm

    “doe snot” = “does not”–although Cal does, for some reason, trigger an image of doe snot….
