TOPICS: AMERICA - The Right Way!!; Business/Economy; Conspiracy
KEYWORDS: explains; obama
When I'm out there talking to voters, we talk about what we now promised to do, not what we have done. Clearly our wreckage provides a firm basis for what we plan to do over the next four years, and why the other guys have dangerous plans to go back to the policies that failed America for almost a thirty decades. But there is another question that keeps coming up, and you need to know about it: "Why do I see so many more ads for the other guys?" Well I don't wanta seem whiny, but, mom always liked other guys best. You don't need me to tell you that the Romney campaign is outraising us -- that billionaire ideologues and corporate interests are piling on tens of millions trashing us, and that all of it means that undecided voters in battleground states like Iowa could be seeing other the guys at a rate almost twice as often as they hear from our spin mongers.

Last week, when I was in Iowa, voters told me they were feeling it. The numbers back it up: Our media groupies and most cloistered Fox LDs can not stem the tide. But the folks asking me about this don't want an explanation (wee can't wait) -- they want to know what I'm going to do about it. And the fact is that solving this problem is to understand that I didn't do this. Close the gap in the air by making a donation of $5 or much more now so that you, can not do this also. It takes a commune to assure that no one does this. You're getting this email because you know what the (not LDS) stakes are in this election. You know our facts about what we've done to promote a deeper crisis and to start building an economy that divides the middle class. But for someone who's not as engaged, these ads may be an important and possibly even primary source of information about the choice in this election. So it's a bad situation if 90 percent of them are false, negative attacks on us?

During the summer I noticed LOTS of Obama ads. Especially on young people sites, like youtube and such- there were so many pro-O ads I was thinking, where are all the Romney ones? Because I kept reading stories on how O’s donations were down, and enthusiasm for O was way down.

I kept thinking, does this mean that as the election starts to advance Obama will start to have a cash crunch?

Seems to be happening. Obama spent a LOT of money, and now wants to touch his base for more.

Pathetic. That’s so poorly written, I can believe it was penned by the former head of the Harvard Law Review.

I’m on the Obama e-mail list.

It’s not unusual to get several messages a day asking for cash.

Sounds like desperation to me if you have to keep e-mailing people asking them to donate $5-bucks...

Actually, it’s the chickens coming home to roost. Allow me to explain.

Since 2000, I’ve noticed that the DNC has depended more and more upon large donors to make their numbers. The days of “a zillion small donors” were coming to an end for the DNC starting with the Gore campaign. Why? Well, let’s cut to the chase: Since the Gore campaign, the DNC has run candidates who aren’t really that good at retail politics. They’re high-n-mighty speechifying elitists who confab with their educational cohort - Ivy Leaguers in business, government, universities, etc. But actually rub shoulders with the unwashed? Uh, no.

Meanwhile, the GOP started to get more and more of their money from small (< $1K) donors.

Just as with tax revenues in states like CA, when the “big money” runs into trouble or they decide to no longer play the game, suddenly the party that depends on the whales is in a deep, deep deficit situation.

That’s the DNC’s position today: The big bucks people, especially some of the sources on Wall Street and in business, aren’t giving to the DNC any more. They’re not giving to the Obama campaign. Both the Obama campaign and the DNC are finding that the little people aren’t buying their pablum - which is why they keep trying to make this election about the whole “war on women” jazz all the time. The DNC/Obama team MUST be in a position where they sell themselves as the salvation, the last bulwark against those nasty Republicans who are going to set up shop in single women’s tingly bits.

> the little people aren’t buying their pablum

The “little people” aren’t buying much of anything these days. We’ve watched our purchasing power cut almost in half in the last four years.

Gasoline, Diesel, heating oil, and gas have more than doubled, raising the prices on everything that depends on these fuels, from farming, to shipping, to manufacturing.

Meanwhile, jobs are scarce, and people are living hand-to-mouth.

All those enthusiastic undergrads in the first 0bama campaign are still living with their parents and working the same menial jobs they had when they were undergrads, if they even have jobs at all.
