What the Media INTENTIONALLY Overlooked in Donna Brazile’s Book
While everybody has fixated on DNC interim Chairperson Donna Brazile’s revelation that Hillary Clinton rigged the system, there was a much bigger story.
Her criticism of Barack Obama went essentially unnoticed. And that is Barack Obama is the reason the DNC sold its soul to the Devil, Hillary Clinton.
As I quipped while co-hosting Fox and Friends, the Democrats allowed the black guy to bankrupt them. Some felt my comment didn’t need to include the idea that Obama is black as the reason for the Democrats’ financial woes. Nonsense.
Since the Democrats invested heavily in Obama’s “blackness”, the quip was apropos. Remember when Obama’s fundraising was legendary?
ABC reported the figures:
He was not quite the first $1 billion president — but he was three quarters of the way there.
In 21-plus months, Barack Obama raised roughly $750 million from donors, surpassing all of his White House opponents this year and also eclipsing the total amount of money raised by all of the presidential candidates combined in 2004.
More than all presidential candidates in 2004 combined. That’s amazing.
And it gets better.
From Oct. 16 through Nov. 24, 20 days after he was elected president, the Obama campaign reported bringing in $110.7 million from more than a million contributors. In that time period, Obama raised more money than the McCain campaign had available to spend during the general election, which officially began after the parties held their late summer conventions.
The Obama campaign finished the reporting period sitting on $30 million. It’s not clear how that money will be used. Plus, the Obama campaign advises it expects its total amount of money to increase when cash from the Obama Victory Fund comes in. The campaign reports more than $770 million in total receipts.
Now compare Obama’s fundraising to that of John McCain:
McCain’s fundraising for the 2008 cycle was not terrible. The Arizona senator raised a respectable $238 million from donors, in addition to the $84 million federal grant he received for participating in the public financing system.
Obama first said he would do as McCain had done. However, after finding out that Democrats really liked him as their “light-skinned Negro with no Negro dialect,” he opted out, and went for the big money.
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama said Thursday he’ll bypass the federal public financing system in the general election, abandoning an earlier commitment to take the money if his Republican rival did as well.
Obama, who set records raising money in the primary election, will forgo more than $84 million that would have been available to him in the general election. He would be the first candidate to do so since Congress passed 1970s post-Watergate campaign finance laws. Sen. John McCain, the Republican nominee in waiting, has taken steps to accept the public funds in the general election.
Obama officials said they decided to take that route because McCain is already spending privately raised funds toward the general election campaign. Obama has vastly outraised McCain, however, and would likely retain that advantage if McCain accepts the public money.
While decrying what Obama described as a “broken system”, he managed to outpace McCain almost 3 to 1 in campaign fundraising.
So what happened?
As Donna Brazile penned in her new book, Obama left the Democrats broke:
Officials from Hillary’s campaign had taken a look at the DNC’s books. Obama left the party $24 million in debt—$15 million in bank debt and more than $8 million owed to vendors after the 2012 campaign—and had been paying that off very slowly. Obama’s campaign was not scheduled to pay it off until 2016. Hillary for America (the campaign) and the Hillary Victory Fund (its joint fundraising vehicle with the DNC) had taken care of 80 percent of the remaining debt in 2016, about $10 million, and had placed the party on an allowance.
Placed the party on an allowance?! Like children!
The black boyfriend stole everything and left for good to get his crack and a new white girlfriend, and now Grandmother steps in to restore order.
The real question is why hasn’t the press discussed how Obama left the party in such financial ruin? However, the Democratic Party’s former rock star can’t rub two nickels together to help the party, a party for whom he lost over 1000 seats to Republicans.
I know, I know…but look at Obama’s polling. And of course, let’s all say it together:
He’s the MOST popular president EVER!
And how could we forget that Obama had the highest approval numbers for a president leaving office.
Sure; and I just returned from mountain-climbing in New Orleans, Louisiana.
When I appeared on Fox News’ Outnumbered, Marie Sharf, resident Leftists bragged that Democrats were donating directly to candidates in record numbers, and no longer directly to the DNC.
In other words, “Nothing to see here.”
The DNC that’s has had three chairpersons in less than 2 years? Perhaps, the DNC who finds itself embroiled in the controversy created by the interim chair, and who former chairperson finds herself being consider for a possible investigation regarding former IT staffers? Or maybe the DNC that is currently run by a radical Latino with an ethno-centric black racist as his understudy.
And the Democrats wonder why they can’t raise money?
I’d tell them to try a new message, but they tried that. Better, better, BETTER! Only people knew immediately “better” was just more of the same.
In discussing Obama’s first fundraiser since he had left office, The Hill reported the following:
The DNC has raised funds at a sluggish pace since Obama left office in January, bringing in $38.2 million in the first half of 2017, compared to the Republican National Committee’s $75.4 million haul during that same period.
But the real story is that in one of the Left’s preeminent news organizations, they got 72 “shares” months after the article was published.
I’m anxious to see just how well things went in this fundraiser, as I could find no information on the outcome.
So where are the Democrats? In deep kimche, that’s where.
Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are both toxic as far as donations are concerned. And despite the media barrage against the president, he knocks it out of the park almost every time he gets up to bat.
Revised unemployment numbers from the last period added 90,000 jobs thought to be gone due to the hurricanes. In other words, Trump’s economy is hurricane-proof.
Then we get a report of 261,000 new jobs, GDP over 3 percent for the second quarter in a row, with expectations we will get to 4, possibly 5 percent growth.
President Trump has added $5.4 trillion to the stock market, consumer confidence is at a high unseen in decades.
As House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other pivot from Clinton’s woes and say they look to the future, I see a dismal future for the Democrats. They haven’t had much luck with mid-term elections, and we all know what happened in the last presidential election. As the Shirley Bassey sang with the Propellerheads:
Word is about, there’s something evolving.
Whatever may come, the world keep revolving.
They say the next big thing is here.
That the revolution’s near.
But to me it seems quite clear, that is all just a little bit of history repeating.
