Obama Campaign Raises Money for Hillary Clinton

Four years ago, the Obama fund-raising machine worked to bury Hillary Rodham Clinton. Now his contributors are opening their wallets for her.

Obama campaign officials have asked the president’s elite donors and fund-raisers to donate to Mrs. Clinton’s defunct presidential campaign committee, with the goal of retiring $245,000 in debt left over from her 2008 White House bid. As secretary of state, Mrs. Clinton is barred from engaging in political activity or actively fund-raising for herself.

People familiar with the effort said the campaign’s outreach grew out of discussions with Mrs. Clinton’s husband, former President Bill Clinton, who has agreed to headline a series of major fund-raisers for Mr. Obama’s presidential campaign, including one this Sunday at the Virginia home of Terry McAuliffe, a former chairman of the Democratic National Committee. Mr. Clinton has also been approached to help raise money for Priorities USA Action, a “super PAC” founded by former Obama aides that has had difficulty attracting donors.

Yes, its also about 2016!

I got to hand it to the libs- they think long term, baby steps, rather than all or nothing.

What a load! A couple of “speeches” by der Schlickmeister and this debt could have been retired a long time ago. Sounds to me as though they want somebody else to pay their bills. Typical commie libs.

$245,000 dollars?

Why doesn’t she just write them a check. She is a Millionaire. She should pay off her debt.

Whoever she owes it to should use the IRS way of adding penalty and interest.

That debt would be 20 million by now instead of $245,000

That’s a sign that Hillary is going to be the VEEP.

“Sounds to me as though they want somebody else to pay their bills.”

Al Sharpton pulled this sh!t when he wouldn’t pay the prosecutor who was slandered/libeled in the Tawana Brawley case for years. When he wanted to run for president (remember that?), he got libs to pay off the old debt so it wouldn’t be hanging over his head (and his campaign wouldn’t be too closely examined).

She is worth tens of millions and her money is so precious she needs to get others to pay that?
That’s F’d IMO.

“Mrs. Clinton’s defunct presidential campaign committee, with the goal of retiring $245,000 in debt left over from her 2008 White House bid.”

Money that she owes herself, by the way:

“Hillary (and Bill?) Loan Her Campaign $6 Million More”

Arkansas grifter gypsies.

Billy could pay this off with a 15 minute speech, but it just feels more natural if the suckers pick up the tab.

Yep. She looks like she has had botox and will likely soon get a full face lift to look more appealing. UGH!

Folks come August if it looks like Obama is going to lose, all at once Biden is going to get sick and want to spend more time with the kids. All at once Hillary will be drafted for the ticket and she will be the VP pick. Guaranteed.

$245,000 ?? Amazing.

She could wipe that out with one stock transaction. Remember when she bought and sold some cattle, making a few thousand dollars profit in a couple of days? That was when The Pervert was governor and she was a Notary Public, clerk, typist or something like that at the Rose Law firm in Arkansas.

Why doesn’t she just fence some of the stuff they stole from the White House when they left?

Yep, I sure don’t get this.

Hillary’s campaign is $245,000 in debt? But the Clintons are worth in the tens of millions of dollars. The Clintons don’t have to worry about how to pay their bills. $245,000 compared to the tens of millions the Clintons hauled in after Bill left the White House is like ten bucks out of most of our paychecks, proportionally speaking.

A piddling $245K? Can’t they pay that off themselves?

I think Biden will go quietly. He himself said that Hillary would have been a better choice.
