O’Malley: Democrats need to “stop being so precious” with their money and donate already

posted at 4:01 pm on June 22, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

Democrats are starting to feel a tad bit nervous about the amount of cash Mitt Romney is managing to generate for his presidential campaign — he’s quite literally giving President Obama a run for his money.

Obama for America and the Democratic National Committee had a combined $139 million in the bank while the newly minted presumptive GOP nominee, Mitt Romney, and the Republican National Committee had a total of $44 million. And $35 million of that was the RNC’s. Mr. Romney’s coffers were nearly bare.

Fast forward to June 7. The Obama campaign announced the combined Democratic effort had taken in $60 million in May, primarily from an extensive schedule of presidential fundraisers (including $15 million from a dinner at actor George Clooney’s).

That afternoon, Team Obama received an unwelcome surprise when the Romney campaign and RNC announced they raised a combined $76 million during May. …

The Democrats’ official fundraising numbers, released on Wednesday, showed that the $95 million cash-on-hand advantage Obama and the DNC had over the Republicans at the end of April had been cut by two-thirds at the end of May to $33 million. This is in part because the Obama campaign is burning through its war chest so fast and in part because of the impressive $107 million that the Romney campaign and the RNC announced they had on hand at May’s end.

Come on, Democrats, it’s time to pony up, open your checkbooks, and get President Obama reelected! At least that was the message Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley had for the illiberal liberals of his own party on MSNBC this morning.

“I think all of us need to do everything we can,” the Democratic Governors Association chairman said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “That’s true of people of limited means, people of great means. You can’t just sit back and say, oh, because the extreme right is trying to buy this election, we’re going to unilaterally disarm.”

He continued: “I think we all need to put our oars in the water and we all need to row forward and I think especially Democrats of means have to stop being so precious about the magic wand that the president hasn’t waved on this issue, that issue or the other issue. I mean, my goodness, I thought we were working and electing a president, not a magician here. This is the real world.”

Hmm — formerly loyal supporters either do not have, or are unwilling to give, gobs of their hard-earned money to the president who has presided over the most meager not-a-recovery since the Great Depression? That’s so strange.

Or instead of giving a wedding gift or other present, you can direct the monies instead to the “OBAMA EVENT REGISTRY”.

Getting married? President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign has the perfect wedding gift in mind.

The campaign has started an “Obama event registry” to let engaged fans of the president ask friends and family for donations to his re-election bid instead of presents.

Mutnodjmet on June 22, 2012 at 4:04 PM

Forget the wedding gift…how about you make a donation to the Obama campaign instead?

My governor. I’m so proud /sarc

There aren’t many millionaires left in O’Malley’s state. He chased them out. Aren’t many middle class left either because he’s taxed us to the point where we’d actually earn more on welfare.

And he’s a Maryland Democrat. Bought and paid for undoubedly.

He is very probably the worst governor in the Country and I say that knowing there’s a Jerry Brown out there.

Portia46 on June 22, 2012 at 4:08 PM

Basically, O’Malley’s telling Democrats they don’t need Barack Obama to reach into their pockets and throw away their money with his boondoggle programs, they can do it for themselves by sending donations to his re-election campaign.

John — I hate to tell you this, there is yet more they can do.

In ancient Rome, some Emperors would force wealth citizens to leave all their money and possessions to Caesar in their wills. Then these citizens would be forced to commit suicide or meet an untimely end in some other way.

My question: Is this the next avenue for Team Obama to extract more donations????

Mutnodjmet on June 22, 2012 at 4:11 PM

… AND, when(!) obama is re-elected, all of your personal wealth is going to be seized and re-distributed anyway, so you might as well hand it over voluntarily while you still have a choice – it’s simply the right thing to do … or something.

I was going to say that I thought the WSJ has been reporting that O’Malley has been taxing MD residents into oblivion.

That said, I was in Annapolis for a few days for my nephew’s graduation from the USNA. My family rented a house from a USNA grad, and we received his local Annapolis paper. I was surprised–and heartened–to see some very conservative political cartoons and a few letters to the editor ripping Obama and O’Malley new ones.

BuckeyeSam on June 22, 2012 at 4:22 PM

If you don’t want to voluntarily donate or use the Barky Gift Registry, you also have the option of direct deposit which will automatically deduct 50% of your wages and apply to Bark’s campaign fund.

You don’t want to be seen as a greedy fascist, do you? Give generously, give today. Or else.

Bishop on June 22, 2012 at 4:23 PM

O’Malley was a failure as the mayor of Baltimore, so he got promoted to bring failing policies to the whole state of Maryland.

My mother, who voted for Democrats all her life until having to choose between Ehrlich & Kennedy-Townsend in 2002, can’t stand him.

He get pwned by my governor, Bob McDonnell, when they make joint appearances on Meet the Liberal Press.

…..hey genius…..
Obama’s own campaign foundation for 2008 was based on “Hope and Change” and all he did was make grandiose promises of how he was going to fix all of our woes.
Don’t put this off on the electorate.Obama himself was more than happy to go around playing the liberal Messiah while the MSM and the knee pad brigade glorified his every move as “historical” and the work of a super intelligent being ….a lightworker…….that was going to bring peace,love,and prosperity.
Apparently you have forgotten the articles about “Obama walking down the beach with the sun glistening off his fantastic chest” in the Washington Post.
Maybe you weren’t paying attention when writers from the NY Times were asking Obama how “enchanted” he was during press conferences.

We had Hollywood stars that are so important to the democratic policy agenda proclaiming Obama as “another Jesus”…..”Ghandi”…..
Newsweek editors proclaimed him like “God…looking down over the Earth”….
We had so called news anchors like Chris Matthews “getting tingles up their legs” when Obama spoke.

All we heard was how incredible the orating skills of Mr. teleprompter were and how his majestic demeanor and incredible intelligence was going to win over foreign nations….bring all sides together…..and rescue us from the
awful BushHtitler…..
Don’t prop your boy king up to stratospheric levels so that he can win the Presidency…..then declare the electorate as having expectations to high when he not only doesn’t come through…..but has failed miserably.

Epic Fail.

Democrats are starting to feel a tad bit nervous about the amount of cash Mitt Romney is managing to generate for his presidential campaign — he’s quite literally giving President Obama a run for his money.

So is Mitt promising more to the big shots than Obama is? Seems like Obama really has been pretty good for the bank accounts of major companies and financial concerns. Haven’t heard any rumors about either George Soros nor the Koch Brothers heading to the poor house any time soon. Just because we may be worse off than we were four years ago doesn’t mean that the people that really count to these weasels are hurting.

Sure, they may have lost tens of millions, but they’ve made hundreds of millions as well. Just doesn’t work that way for us unless you happen to have the $, the time and the know-how to do short-selling and long-selling on the international markets.

You are absolutely correct. I am getting ready to retire and it won’t be here in Maryland.

To all on this board beware. O’Malley in my opinion, is the most devious lying politician working today. He wants to be President of the U.S. and he will burn down Maryland and all of the country to get there.

O’Barky’s traditional revenue streams have been drained dry; some of the Hollywierd bosses began seeing the light months ago.

And now, apparently, some of the glitterati are starting to catch on, too!

Boycotting the BigScreen does work!

I also feel your pain. As a city resident, I know all too well of his actions.

I love my state but it is becoming a cesspool of the likes of California. The only difference is the location of DC.

He wants to be President of the U.S. and he will burn down Maryland and all of the country to get there.

I’ve been saying this since his first election as Guv. He’s as slick as they come. I just hope there is salvation before 2015.

FEC.GOV says “O’Malley, Martin” of Maryland hasn’t donated a dime in this election cycle.

“Leading from behind”

You were looking under the wrong name. Try his first AG of MD or his wife’s maiden name. He probably thinks no one will look.

And since M’OM really wants full gambling in our state, I wouldn’t be surprised if he slips into the legislation that the DNC gets a cut of your winnings, after taxes of course.

At this point, I’m not sure which will come first…moving day or Nov. 6th.

Silly, liberals are only generous with other people’s money.

Here in MD, we call him Martin O’Money

I mean, my goodness, I thought we were working and electing a president, not a magician here. This is the real world.”
