How to turn defeat into another plea for money.

One for the Money, two for the Show, three to get ready and four to go!

Here is another e-mail from the Obama Campaign. It pitches the Democrat loss in Wisconsin to seek campaign contributions from the little people so that President Obama can defeat wicked special interests.

Meanwhile President Obama, the Campaigner in Chief (CIC), is in sunny California for campaign events with what must of course be the little people of San Francisco and Los Angeles. It’s a punishing day’s work, from early morning (9:20 a.m. departure, EDT) until well after midnight (11:55 p.m. EDT campaign event remarks). Does he never sleep? This massive personal sacrifice, like all others he so willingly makes for us, requires his total concentration and all of his energy. Hence, he neglected even to mention that today is the 68th anniversary of an insignificant little military scuffle (D Day) that pales into insignificance compared to the gutsy way in which he killed Osama. Had he remembered D Day he would likely have offered his most sincere apologies for our former militarism.

Friend —

What just happened in Wisconsin wasn’t an accident.

Republican Governor Scott Walker and his allies outspent the Democratic challenger nearly EIGHT to ONE — and one of the most unpopular governors in the country managed to hold on.

This result is direct confirmation that all the outside money that’s poured into elections this cycle can and will change their outcome. And it’s exactly what could happen on the national stage unless we can close the gap between special interests and ordinary people.

Please donate $3 or more to support President Obama and make sure people, not special interests, decide this election.

Walker was challenged because he’s spent the last year and a half promoting special interests and Republican ideologues while taking away a seat at the table for middle-class families. But when his job was on the line, those same interest groups repaid the favors — and were willing to spend nearly EIGHT times as much money as the Democratic candidate and his allies raised.

This is the playbook Mitt Romney used in primary after primary against Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich.

His ad buys were overwhelmingly negative, and he and his backers poured money into whatever state was next until they got the result they wanted.

Now, imagine this same scenario playing out again in Wisconsin in November, and in Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Nevada, and the rest of the battleground states.

The other side has the money. They know they can buy the election if they spend it. And they are being told every day by Mitt Romney that he will do exactly what they want him to.

We can stop them.

Not even a mention of a chance for dinner with the President and his lovely wife!

    No thanks. I get enough spam.

    That is the most disgusting fundraising letter I ever read. I lose more respect for the Obama administration every day. And Axlerod dares to go on the Sunday talk shows and say that the Obama campaign isn’t negative?
    Sorry. But that letter does not sound like one that should be coming from a sitting president. No class at all. i would be embarrassed to have my name on this letter, no matter what political party sent it.

    • Well, yes. But most have been pretty disgusting and the downward trend will probably continue along with the downward trend in campaign contributions. To get them all, go to the Obama-Biden campaign website and then when you receive your first direct it to your spam file. That works on G-mail, which keeps spam for thirty days. I check mine daily but keep the O-grams until I use them or forget them.
