Liberal Nutroots Donates Over $330,000 For Joe Wilson's Opponent in Just 15 hours
TCRLAF | 9-10-09 | TCRLAF

Posted on 09/10/2009 11:20:15 AM PDT by tcrlaf

As we all know, Joe Wilson spoke FOR US last night....

And that can just not be allowed, he must be DESTROYED. 9,000 Individual Contributors have sent money to his opponent, Rob Miller, in the last 15 hours, via just ONE website, ActBlue.

3,846 KOS KLOWNS have donated over $135,000 ALONE.

Could Freepers donate that kind of money to a single candidate in the same amount of time??

We have NOTHING that even comes close to competing with this, and this should serve as a MASSIVE wakeup call for us, to get it together, FAST...

ActBlue cleared FIFTY MILLION DOLLARS for Democrat Candidates for Congress and Senate in 2008.

Just for the record, here are this moron's Act Blue Contributions list:

It's time for some of us to realize this isn't a GAME, it's a WAR. And unless we gear up, NOW, we've already lost.

They did the same thing for Michele bachmann’s opponent after she told the truth on Chrissy Matthews show.

And the RNC ditched Bachmann as well. Hence the RNC will never see another penny from me as long as I breathe.

Just a note:
In 2004, Joe Wilson spent $926,000 to win this District.

And the next election is STILL over a year away.

I call BS the figure is going up 100K per hour it seems. I just donated $100 to Wilson and Im sure there are others.

Rep Wilson has released any figures to show how much he has had donated in the past 24 hours

Money alone doesn’t win elections. If it did, we would have had both a President Perot and a President Forbes.

I'd wager (if I had the money) that only a few percent of those pledges will be followed through on.

You see, Liberals like on the Daily KOS are all emotion, and not employed. They talk about how much money they will throw, but when it comes to write the check, ‘darn, I left my checkbook at home’. They don't spend their own money to do anything - thats why they have unions pick up the bill.

So, sure; now they are all fired up and talking big. But in a few hours they will say ‘golly, that money could be used to buy some show tunes, or some leather boots to impress my boyfriend’. Maybe some fresh potpourri for the living room.

“Could Freepers donate that kind of money to a single candidate in the same amount of time??”

The ones that called bribery, sorry, “campaign expenses”, called them “free speech” are pretty quiet these days.

There is a case in the Supreme Court and the “Republican” justices are going to get rid of bribery, sorry “free speech”, restrictions on the unstated belief they help Republicans more because Republicans have richer business interests bankrolling them. But they are mistaken, Democrats have even bigger corporate backers.

So all the little libertarian moonbats are quiet these days, no money flowing to them to write pro-bribery articles.

So, no, you will not hear much.

According to Rush, all these new donations will do is help Rob Miller retire the debt from his last losing campaign.

Perhaps, but it sure as hell helps!!

9 of 10 Congressional winners in 2008 were the ones who spent THE MOST MONEY.

I have searched all day to find a link to donate to my new hero, Joe Wilson. Can’t find one.

It’s a little hard to donate without a place to send money.

Anyone have a link?

With the Dems predicted to be wiped out in ‘10. Those KOS morons are just throwing away money.

It’s entirely possible that Soros wrote a single check for 300k and asked that a couple of thousand jobless nutroots be credited for it.

These aren’t “Pledges”, they are CHARGED CARDS, and the cash is already in the bank.

You give them your credit card number, and it’s charged at the time of donation.

These numbers aren’t BS...

This happened in 2008 as well. I seem to recall something
about 10's of thousands of random credit card "donations"
to our new dear leader.

Just a heads up —the site has so much traffic that it is not processing the payment completion acknowledgment correctly. You may get a server error message when in fact the payment was processed.

I donated last night. The campaign website was difficult to load - and took a long time. I'm thinking there may have been a lot of conservative donations last night, and today, and tomorrow. Joe is in good hands. He spoke what we all were thinking.

No kidding

It looks like he "only" won by 8 points in 2008, but every other one has been a complete blowout. Let the kosKiddies and DUmmies pour their hard-earned money down that particular rat-hole. My bet is that so much kos/du/ActBlue money flowing into his opponent only does his OPPONENT harm in that particular district.
