MoveOn May Have To Cut Back Dem Funding

From the Washington Examiner:

MoveOn warns ‘We might have to pull the plug’

Paul Bedard
May 30, 2012

MoveOn, a giant in the progressive political world and an early endorser of Barack Obama in 2008, warns that it might have to “pull the plug” on key campaigns to help Obama and Senate Democrats if its 7 million members don’t pony up with at least $5.

Without a rush of new cash, MoveOn says it will have to give up efforts to elect Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts, help the recall fight against Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, and energize younger voters who’ve soured on Washington.

Maybe MoveOn should organize a ‘Wampum For Warren’ drive. As for the Scott Walker recall, please, pour more money into that lost cause.

“It’s like picking which of your kids you love the most. I just can’t do it,” said MoveOn in an email plea. “If we can’t increase our budget, we might have to dramatically scale back or pull the plug on some of MoveOn’s most important election efforts this year.”

“If we can finish this quarter with a bang, that will give us enough confidence to go forward with campaigns that we’d otherwise have to cut right now.”

This begging email may indicate a certain ‘enthusiasm gap’ among some of the Democrat base. Perhaps some of their supporters have finally grown up and ‘moved on.’ But we suspect MoveOn is just ‘crying wolf’ here.

After all, the New York Times reported back on May 8th that George Soros is planning to pour another $100 millions of dollars into the various Democrat fronts for this year’s campaign.

And that can’t all be going to Occupy Wall Street and Media Matters and NPR.

    You notice that when they lose, they never really lose? But when they get even the slightest victory, it’s confetti, champagne, marching down Washington with a giant gavel in hand, heads reared back in fake laughter for the cameras, front page news. Ding – Dong Conservatism is Finally DEAD! HUZZAH!

    Conservatives need to know how to party. George W. Bush meekly took the White House without fanfare, but disgraced Bill Clinton had a wild exit party, and dragged away tons of gifts on the way out. If Romney wins, he should rub it in their faces, democrats certainly do.

    Oh, boo ‘frikkin’ hoo. Sounds more like a whimper
    than a bang. When reality finally bites ’em where
    the good Lord split ’em, it’s so sad, like puppies in
    the rain.

    Whaaaaaaa. Call the whaaambulance to pick up the poor poor uber union leadership. Bunch of crybabies.

    give up efforts to elect Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts, help the recall fight against Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, and energize younger voters who’ve soured on Washington.

    Elizabeth (Fauxcahontis) Warren is a lost cause. The Walker recall is a lost cause. Young voters in Washington are going to stay sour until someone gets them a job, or just writes them a check, so that’s a waste of money too. Yet, they’re still using them as examples of where your money needs to go. Even if you were a liberal wingnut from NE Leftyville, why would you want them to throw your money down an already lost campaign hole? So on both sides of the conversation, they’re idiots. Whiney pittiful little idiots. HA I love it!!!

    So this means, “GrovelOn.org”, can’t ‘biggie-size’ their onslaught of our personal freedoms? Bummer Dude!
    What’s next, a Mayor that prohibits a big-gulp? OWS. Where are you now ? These are the same people that put the word “Prissy” in pretentious. It’s not DEM funding, it’s dumb funding. Haw!

    The attached video provides some insight to America into a typical Barack Obama supporter who has completely NO concept of what a free market, free society and capitalist system is all about. This person is what the Democratic Party prays on for their support and votes by providing “entitlements” to them, paid for by someone else who is working. This is what the conservative people of America are “up against” ………….Free Loaders! How many do you know?

    4. Here is a video of a future Democratic voter. Congresswoman Maxine Waters would be proud of this kid. Since Barack Obama has said that Republicans need to “get to the rear of the bus”, He would also support this kid and his vocabulary.

    Thank’s Tater. Some of you’re links have been scrubbed, at least, I can’t get to them. Instead of dumb funding.
    It’s dumbfounding.
