Los Angeles (CNN) - Faced with difficult odds in November's midterm elections, President Obama's trying to fire up the base, and energize major donors to the Democratic party as he makes a major fundraising swing along the West Coast.
"My main message to all of you is feel a sense of urgency about this election. This is my last campaign, and I'm going to put everything I've got into it, but I need you to feel that this is just as important, because we can't afford to wait until 2016," the President said at a fundraiser in Los Angeles Wednesday night for both the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
With the midterm contests starting to get overshadowed a bit by the next race for the White House, Obama asked that this November's elections not be overlooked.
"A lot of people here are already excited about 2016. You guys were excited about 2008. You got geared up for 2012. I am grateful. But I need some partners. I've got to have a Democratic Senate. And when you think about everything I was able to accomplish with Nancy Pelosi at the helm in the House, all the issues that you care about that we were able to advance when she was the leader, I think you've got a big stake in making sure that we've got a Democratic House as well," the President said.
And the President suggested that this year's contests are arguably as important as what happens in 2016.
"Nothing is going to happen magically, by the way, that changes in 2016 if we still have the same kind of voting patterns and the same dysfunction that we've got right now in Congress. We'll be stymied all over again.

I imagine for $10,000 the king would nod in your general direction,for $32,400,you are allowed to bow and kiss his ring;)
California is an incredibly wealthy place for progressive loving crony capitalists.
And the Disciples of Baraq want it to stay that way.
No one feels a greater sense of urgency than all of us ... we want you Mr President to URGENTLY leave ...
“This is my last campaign,”
ah that’s a rather odd statement isnt it?
whill he not be able to campaign for anyone after he presumably leaves office?
or....perhaps he’s forgotten that he was recently re-elected?
Generally, Socialism moves around pretending to work until it runs out of everyone else's money.
To libs: If you like your lying,cheating, criminal Democrats, then you can keep your lying,cheating, criminal Democrats....PERIOD!
‘Tis odd, isn’t it?
this may have come about due to his rather narrow obsessive focus on year round perrenial campaigning hes been doing since he appeared on “the scene”.
Very true. That’s all he knows how to do.
it appears...that Obie may be suffering from the dread One Track Mind Syndrome to such a degree that hes repeating himself with stuff he said prior to his re-election.
Obama just doesn’t want the ratroots to realise that
after this election, he will so taint a candidate that
no one will want to let him launder their money...
And if the middle class desertion to Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, etc. continues, the progs will be the only ones left in CA. Wouldn't that be cool?
What about the 15 million illegals and welfare "clients"?
his Last Big Stand!
Somebody has to pay taxes to support the progs "in the manner accustomed." :)
