David Axelrod wants Democratic donors to stop donating to Hillary Clinton's team
The Washington Examiner ^ | February 6, 2014 | Joel Gehrke

David Axelrod, President Obama's top strategist when he defeated Hillary Clinton in 2008, wants Democratic donors to focus on the 2014 elections, rather than Clinton's likely campaign.

"With the Senate seriously at risk, and the Koch Brothers spending prodigiously, shouldn't Dem funders be focused on '14 and not '16 races?" Axelrod tweeted Thursday afternoon, in what appears to be a very thinly veiled allusion to the Clinton machine that is already coming together.

The tweet comes just days after a Wall Street Journal report on Democratic concerns that the early support for Clinton could hurt the Democratic Party's midterm efforts.

"The formidable campaign apparatus that has sprung up to support a possible 2016 presidential bid by Hillary Clinton is rattling some Democrats, sparking concerns that it could suppress competition for the party nomination and siphon money from candidates running in the midterm elections this fall," the Journal said.

You've already lost the Senate, Dave, unless the Republicans do something really stupid, which is always a possibility.

OfA and the Clinton machine are running at cross purposes. All the smoldering resentments from the 2007 primary season are starting to come back to the surface.

Hopefully, the smoldering erupts into a conflagration.

the senate and house are irrelevant now in the governance of Transformed Amerika, it is just a lifeless fossil and has no function anymore

everything is just dictated from the White House (or golf course)

so it makes sense for D’s to contribute to their choice of 2016 Presidential candidate, and not waste even two cents on Congress

If bambi looses the majority in the Senate watch the long knives come out.

Nero will blame Hitlary and her gaggle will shred the Kenyan Fraud.

Note to David AxleGrease, stay away from trips over seas (see Ron Brown Bio) or long quiet walks at Fort Mercy Park (See Vince Foster bio) or short stays in Jail. (See Jim McDougal Bio).

Team Obama are the Trotskites.

The Obamas fear nothing more than the Clintons coming into power, while at the same time they are losing all their power.

The Clintons never forget and never forgive. If Hillary ever makes it to the White House the pay back will be epic.
