Dems Try a New Tactic to Raise Campaign Cash: Shame SEP 29, 2012 BY DANIEL HALPER Democrats today trotted out a new tactic for raising campaign cash: shame.
The email arrived this afternoon from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, with the subject, "Your support record," and the sender, "Democratic Headquarters." It aimed point out to supporters that they hadn't given campaign cash.
Take the one I received, for instance:
"Were reviewing our Democratic supporter records in advance of tomorrows Federal Election Commission (FEC) deadline," read the email. "Your record is copied and pasted below:
Supporter record: 11919797 Name: Daniel Halper 2012 Online Support: Pending Suggested support: $3.00
"Pending" apparently means that I have not given a dime. But that they are relying (and counting) on my support.
Then, the email shifts back to an old tactic: desperation.
"If youre planning to contribute to our campaign to win a Democratic House for President Obama, its critical that you make your donation in the next 24 hours. Tomorrow is the last major FEC reporting deadline of the 2012 general election. Were relying on your support: 80% of our contributions are $35 or less," read the email.

“Gib me a DOLLA!!!”
“Democrats today trotted out a new tactic for raising campaign cash: shame.”
Won’t work. They have no shame.
It’ll work. The author used the wrong word. It’s not a shame appeal: it’s guilt.
And liberals have guilt - real and pretended, appropriate and misguided - coming out of their ears.
“Its not a shame appeal: its guilt.”
Now that’s different. Guilt works.
How on earth is THAT supposed to work?
Shame???? Democrats???? Shame????? hehehheheheheheHAHAHAAHA, giggle, snort, chuckle, BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAA!!!!!
Good luck with that!
I keep seeing references to the Obama phone, but must be missing something, what is it?
Was posted on Drudge a couple of days ago:
Original Obamaphone Lady: Obama Voter Says Vote for Obama because he gives a free Phone
Protester outside of Romney rally explains how Obama gives all minorities free phones and that is why they should vote for him. Cleveland Ohio, September 26, 2012 (Added: This lady told film maker that she was NOT being paid to protest. Others in the group said that all were from SEIU. This is unconfirmed for this lady.)
Its been the M.O. of the democrats for a long time now. They are the ultimate bullies in politics and in every social corner. the arrogance they display when you merely disagree speaks volumes about who and what they have become as a party. there are good democrats, they actually feel shame and I only delight in how left the whole party has gone so that those people finally see the light of what has happened and how hijacked the have becoem and LEAVE.
This is very true. Go to any union hall in Chicago land, or bid on any job for the city or state, and you WILL be confronted with the list of your contributions to only the DNC, but local politicians and aldermen as well.. You will also be given a list of your hires, by race. Other “charitable contributions” or “good business contributions” will also be noted, such as Operation Push, the Rainbow Coalition, etc.
You will be shown where you “size up” with other bidders. Just a friendly “FYI”
Oh, but this will have no impact you getting the contract.. it’s just a courtesy that the dem party provides, “free of charge”.
It’s been that way for years.
Or fear. A mob member fears popping up on the radar of the mob leaders. The mob is always looking for disloyal members to attack as an example. This is Guido sending an e-mail "that's a nice set of teeth you got there."
"Oh....you don't VOTE DEMOCRAT or give MONEY to Democrat...NO HEALTH CARE FOR YOU!"
In a sane world, these obamaphones would be called buying votes with taxpayer dollars. It’s not as if the regime has to buy the votes of these parasites.
