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.

Oprah had really painted herself into a corner on this one - if she makes any campaign appearances for “The Other O”, she will further alienate her viewers pissed off b/c she won’t have Palin on hahahaha....what’s a billionaire to do?
Oh my, Obama is going to allow them to use his wife’s name?
Michelle Omarosa Obama?
I’ve read stories where Obamma Lamma has raised a couple hundred thousand for her.
Not even a drop in her rather empty bucket.
“she will further alienate her viewers pissed off b/c she wont have Palin on hahahaha....whats a billionaire to do?”
That’s true. I hope if “O” relents and invites Palin on, that Palin will decline. She doesn’t NEED Oprah.
It is the job of the DNC to raise the money to spread around coupled with each candidates own war chest. The DNC has no excuse this cycle around because until two weeks ago they were “destined” for great majorities and the Presidency.
The RNC, on the other hand, has it the right way around. Cash to spread around for get-out-the-vote drives for both individual candidates and the Presidential ticket. Duh.
Obama may have Oprah in his corner, but she is a shrewd business woman, and Oprah will realize after awhile that this business deal is failing.
And yet Obama and Democrats thought a world tour campaign, and the spectacular staged campaign speech was worthy of extravagant spending. Go figure.
Poor Harry, but I’m going have to think this is his own darn fault - liberals hate to hear that, but they let Barack Hussein Obama take the DNC to Chicago so that Obama can use DNC money and resources above and beyond his own campaign funds. They let him pillage the DNC bank account to put on an unwarranted and frivolous campaign event at Invesco field, complete with fugly fake columns. Barack Hussein Obama’s campaign should have been required to be responsible for a sizable portion of the costs for that seeing as how it went above and beyond the purpose of the Democratic convention.
Lesson for Harry Reid: Don’t ask what the messiah can do for you, ask what YOU can do for the messiah.
