Skip to comments.Cash-poor Obama says no to Reid
Posted on 09/16/2008 6:01:46 AM PDT by AmericanMade1776
Earlier this month, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid made a personal appeal to Barack Obama: Help me grow the Democrats Senate majority by sharing some of the $77 million youve got in the bank.
Obamas campaign said no.
Although Democratic insiders say a better deal could still come, the Obama campaign so far has agreed only to let Senate Democrats use Obamas name as well as those of his wife and running mate in mail and online fundraising pitches. The campaign has planned no joint fundraising events with House or Senate Democrats, and insiders say none is likely to be held before Election Day.

Kerry did the same thing in ‘04.
Its all about the “O.” Does anyone know if he helped out the Clintons with their debt?
Unfortunately, it was only his middle name.
I do not know if Obama ever helped Clinton out of her debt, but I doubt it.
LOL. This is fun.
Obama’s problem is that, although he raises a lot of money he spends it like a drunken sailor (with apologies to all the drunken sailors out there). His cash burn rate is incredible. He has a huge paid staff. There’s probably not much spare change lying around.
They want money because it won't be too much longer before they are running away from that name.
Doesn’t sound like a messiah operating from a position of strength.
Cash-poor? I just heard on the radio that he had a record fund raising day with people paying 38k for a plate of food.
Clinton did the same thing in ‘96.............
Obama is going to waste all that money trying to get himself elected and leave the Congressional Democrats high and dry.
It is, Democrats are not too good with managing money, and the fighting within their ranks over campaign money has to build up a lot of resentment amongst them. Good Times, good times!
No, and that's probably why he didn't pick her as VP. If Biden drops out, that will surely be a Hillary demand................
Kerry had Tereza Heinz, who does Obama have? besides Streisand?
Was there ever a doubt.
Good Times Theme Lyrics
by Dave Grusin and Andrew Bergman
Any time you meet a payment.
Any time you need a friend.
Any time you’re out from under.
Not getting hastled, not getting hustled.
Keepin’ your head above water,
Making a wave when you can.
Temporary lay offs.
Easy credit rip offs.
Scratchin’ and surviving.
Hangin in a chow line
Ain’t we lucky we got ‘em
Obama would waste all his money on Greek columns, if he could.
Kerry probably took Government financing, so the DNC got all the new campaign funds after August 31. Now Obama is sucking up all the Democrats cash.
“Uhhhh....I already spent it”
