Obama: “I’ve got one more campaign I’ve got to run”

posted at 10:01 am on May 10, 2014 by Jazz Shaw

This must have come as just great news to vulnerable Democrats who have been running away from the President and his plunging approval ratings as fast as their collective feet can carry them. With the situation overseas deteriorating and plenty of issues to handle back home, what’s a President to do? Why, go to a fundraiser, natch. And while there, the Campaigner in Chief had a confession to make.

President Obama made a somber plea before an intimate crowd of some of Hollywood’s biggest donors Wednesday night, asking for help energizing disillusioned voters to give Democrats a chance of keeping their Senate majority in the midterm election.

“I’m in trouble at home,” the president joked at the Bel-Air home of Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn and his wife, Cindy. “I told Michelle back in 2012 I had run my last campaign. But a couple months ago, I had to let her in on a secret and that is, ‘Honey, I’ve got one more campaign I’ve got to run.’”

One of the most common protestations we hear from Democrat supporters this year when the subject of Obama’s less than stellar numbers comes up is, he’s not on the ballot! Well, surprise, surprise. Barack Obama has put himself right back on the playing field, and he is essentially on the ballot whether you like it or not. This also complicates the efforts of vulnerable, cash strapped Democrat Senators like Begich and Hagan who will now be explaining where some of those campaign dollars came from.

On an evening when Obama was raising money to help candidates in some of the most competitive races in the country, NRSC spokeswoman Brook Hougesen noted that some of the candidates had distanced themselves from Obama on the campaign trail.

“Democrats like Michelle Nunn, Kay Hagan, Mark Begich and Mark Udall poke President Obama with one hand and collect Obama’s liberal political cash and resources with the other; a brazen display of hypocrisy if there ever was one,” Hougesen said. “If these Democrats want their actions to match their words, they’ll refuse to accept campaign money and resources from President Obama and the DSCC.”

Tickets for Wednesday evening’s event ranged from $10,000 to $64,800, according to a DSCC official.

That’s a lot of green to pull in for one event, even from Hollywood’s bonanza level liberal donors. Let’s watch and see whether the temptation to take it is greater than the tarnish of where it came from for the more than one half dozen Left side Senators who are facing the political fights of their lives.

Campaigning is the only thing this Community-Organizer-In-Chief does well. My fear is that if he actually keeps the Senate in Democrat hands for another 2 years, he will use his pen and phone to establish his kingdom and court. No more campaigning. Ever.

Obama turns to tech leaders for cash for Democrats

By Steve Holland

SAN JOSE, California Fri May 9, 2014 12:04am EDT
************************************************

Obama needs Democrats to do well in November to allow him to advance his agenda in his last two years in office, in 2015 and 2016.

But most political analysts believe Republicans will build on their House majority and stand a decent chance of winning the Senate.

Obama has been using fund-raising speeches to warn of this outcome, saying Democrats need to avoid getting distracted by media attention on the 2016 presidential election to choose a successor to him.

Obama said in La Jolla that Democrats need to gain seats “in order for us to not simply play defense but to actually go back on the offensive for the American people.”

Weekly Republican Address
Speaker’s Ceremonial Office
Washington, DC
May 10, 2014

House Ways & Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI): “Nothing is more important than preserving the American Dream for our kids and grandkids. That’s why Republicans are relentlessly focused on building a strong economy that produces good jobs and lasting opportunities. The trouble is, that task gets harder and harder each time the powers-that-be in Washington won’t act on a good idea. Here’s what I mean.

“I’m Dave Camp from Michigan. 14 months ago, the House passed H.R. 890, my bill to protect reforms that have helped thousands of welfare recipients find jobs and lift their families out of poverty. Americans are still waiting for President Obama and Senate Democrats to act.”

Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC): “I’m Virginia Foxx from North Carolina. 14 months ago, the House passed H.R. 803, my bill to help more American workers gain the skills and education necessary to compete for in-demand jobs. Americans are still waiting for President Obama and the Senate Democrats to act.”

Rep. Lee Terry (R-NE): “Hello, I’m Lee Terry from Nebraska. 12 months ago, the House passed H.R 3, my bill to build the Keystone XL pipeline and support more than 42,000 direct and indirect jobs. Americans are still waiting for the president and the Senate Democrats to act. It’s time to build the Keystone pipeline.”

Rep. Martha Roby (R-AL): “I’m Martha Roby from Alabama. 12 months ago, the House passed my bill H.R. 1406, to allow private sector workers to take advantage of the comp time benefits public employees enjoy. Americans are still waiting for President Obama and Senate Democrats to act.”

Rep. Mark Amodei (R-NV):“Hi, I’m Mark Amodei from Nevada. Eight months ago, the House passed H.R. 761, my bill to facilitate the development of strategic and critical minerals used to support American manufacturing jobs. Americans are still waiting for President Obama and the Senate Democrats to act.”

Rep. Bill Flores (R-TX): “Hi, I’m Bill Flores from Texas. Seven months ago, the House passed H.R. 2481, my bill to provide our servicemembers with tools that will help them find good jobs when they return home. Americans are still waiting for President Obama and the Senate Democrats to act.”

Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-CO): “I’m Doug Lamborn from Colorado. Six months ago, the House passed H.R. 1965, my bill to make it easier to develop our resources so we can lower energy costs and reduce our dependence on foreign oil. Americans are still waiting for President Obama and Senate Democrats to act.”

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA): “I’m Bob Goodlatte from Virginia. Five months ago, the House passed H.R. 3309, my bill to promote innovation and job creation by helping businesses defend themselves against abusive patent litigation. Americans are still waiting for President Obama and Senate Democrats to act.”

Rep. George Holding (R-NC):“I’m George Holding from North Carolina. Ten weeks ago, the House passed H.R. 2804, my bill to rein in red tape and increase the transparency of new regulations so small businesses can better plan ahead. Americans are still waiting for President Obama and Senate Democrats to act.”

Rep. Rodney Davis (R-IL): “I’m Rodney Davis from Illinois. Eight weeks ago, the House passed H.R. 3474, my bill that would incentivize small businesses to hire more of our veterans. Americans are still waiting for President Obama and Senate Democrats to act.”

Rep. Bill Johnson (R-OH): “I’m Bill Johnson from Ohio. Six weeks ago, the House passed H.R. 2824, my bill to fight back against the administration’s War on Coal that’s destroying jobs and causing electricity prices to skyrocket. Americans are still waiting for President Obama and Senate Democrats to act.”

Rep. Todd Young (R-IN): “I’m Todd Young from Indiana. Five weeks ago, the House passed H.R. 2575, my bill to restore the working hours and wages that millions of part-time employees lost because of Obamacare. Americans are still waiting for President Obama and Senate Democrats to act.”

Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX): “I’m Kevin Brady from Texas. Yesterday, the House passed H.R. 4438, my bill to permanently extend the research & development tax credit so we can keep good ideas and good jobs right here at home.”

House Education & the Workforce Committee Chairman John Kline (R-MN): “I’m John Kline from Minnesota. Yesterday, the House passed H.R. 10, my bill to strengthen charter schools and encourage more choice and opportunity in our education system.

“These are only some of the many bills we’ve passed to provide new hope to families, workers, and students across the country. More are in the works. Because our focus, day in and day out, is on building a stronger economy and a better America. It’s time for President Obama and Senate Democrats to step up and make that their priority too. Thank you for listening, and of course, Happy Mother’s Day.”

And I don’t think that’s true, although I did notice the other day that Sasha needed a speaker at career day and she invited Bill Clinton. – Comedian at the WHCA event

Barry Øbama agrees with us, not you…

obama, you swine, look into this.

Maybe he meant the Mooch was going to run or he’s running for head of the UN. Either way, we lose. He almost let the cat out of the bag unless this is a feint to get the left’s hearts fluttering again.

He’ll run for dog catcher/roaster.

Why do you guys persist with this “plunging approval ratings” meme?

RCP average has him moving from 16pts underwater in december to 7pts umderwater today, five months later.

Both daily tracking polls now have him barely underwater at all, by a statistically insignificant margin (gallup -1, rasmussen -3).

Why do

Please wipe your chin off and rearrange your O’bama Kneepads. Your Slip is showing!

It must have been so humiliating to have your great Montreal Canadiens get shut out in OT, losing on a goal to a rookie playing in his very first game. Did you choke on your Labatt’s Blue?

Now, to the polling you’re desperately trying to spin-CNN had your hero at -15 in December, and their brand new poll has him at -12. Since the typical margin of error in these things is 3%, that means that theoretically he could still actually be at -15.

Another caveat is to remember that some of those “polls” use highly suspect methodology in order to attain a desired result. After O’bama killed bin Laden with his bare hands, al-AP did a new job approval poll that showed he got a 5% upward bump in job approval for that Herculean feat.

However, there was one small problem with the AP poll. It sampled twice as many Democrats as Republicans.

An email obtained by Fox News Friday revealed that an employee at a Wyoming VA hospital instructed his workers to manipulate records to make it seem like patients were being seen within the agency’s required 14-day window, which he described as “gaming the system.”

The pigs killed people, for bonuses, under obama. He is the CiC.

You have to mentally deranged to raise money of a dead person considering the circumstances.
I’m not even sure the devil will approve of this.

I want Obama to run another campaign because he’s lost his credibility. The more he runs and lies (he still can’t tell the truth about Benghazi). If the Democrats lose this year, it won’t be because people completely disagree with their policies, I don’t believe enough people know what their policies are to disagree with them, it will be because they’ve lied so much in the last 6 years that it’s finally going to catch up with them.

What I find amazing is the press has protected them so well, yet their poll numbers are in the tank. How are these people finding out what liars they are? It’s simple, the policy isn’t what they said it would be.

He has a Presidential Library to build. More likely, a theme park. Obamaworld!

Different states have different electorates. One size does NOT fit all. So the decisions on campaigns has to always be on a state-by-state basis.

That said, the Democrats taking the money raised by Obama should not be allowed to “run away from” him in their campaigns. Hold their feet to the fire, especially those in states Romney won easily.

Didn’t know you had to RUN for Anti-Christ.

The only thing Hizzoner, The Supreme Messiah has ever done is campaign for his next job.
I think Barry O has his sight set on the UN job. He gets his sorry butt elected Secretary General, declares all nations to be under shariah law, disbands the militaries of all nations and puts his jihad happy pals from the “peace loving” Muslim brotherhood in charge of enforcement and proclaims himself ruler for life.
All Hail Brother Hussein Obama!!
Don’t forget to pay the jizyah, the “special tax” which may or may not keep your peace loving Muslim neighbors from killing you because”Allah told me to”.

One more? He’s never STOPPED campaigning.

Maybe Hillary will appoint him Secretary of State so he can take vacations for another eight years at taxpayer expense. Good times.
