EDITED EXCERPT Obama promises a frank and intimate discussion, will answer questions and take a photo, at a $32,400 per couple fund-raiser. But Obama has annoyed Dem insiders. Its like Lord of the Flies....he's cannibalizing donors. Others expressed fund-raiser fatigue: It is stunning that he's back. Wed like to see some results for the money weve already given."
The invite explains to Dems: You may ask why the fund-raiser and the reason is twofold....we've built a large campaign operation melding a 2 million grass-roots army of volunteers with ground-breaking technology . . . We cant let Republicans catch up. The White House alone doesnt have the manpower or the resources to withstand Republican attacks and control the message......The DNC is the only organization whose sole mission is to support the president and help him pass his agenda...such as gun control or immigration reform.

And remember when later in the campaign he suddenly announced he had to "bortrow" money to continue canpaigning?
What happened to the billion? Did Republicans demand to seee the FEC reports--Obama was required to file by law? Did Repubs demand to know why he had to borrow money to finish his campaign if he had a billion dollars?
Sorry. Couldn't finish the sentence. Was laughing too hard.
I don’t get it. Why is he doing this? What does he gain from it? Can he steal the money for his own use later on?
——it’s one less dollar they’ll give later——
I would argue that is not true. So long as they have money, and the donors are constantly making money, there will be efforts to get some of it. The guilt never goes away and payments wil be made...... over and over.
Kill gun control (and amnesty) in the Senate and the money will really dry up.
They’re already whining......they haven’t seen anything for the money they gave. I say, bleed ‘em dry.
Guess that's what happens when you sell your soul to the devil.
Think Soylendra....... that money is whisked off shore and banked.
The money he is after now is cor current expenses and payoffs
I get a great kick out of people who say investigate Obama.
Like thats going to happen.
The mans melenin protective cover is greater than the shields on the Death star.
It is time for the DNC to audit their Commie ‘Political Stunt’ Con Artist.
Thanks for this thread on the Commie Obama Regime.

Raising money for the 2016 campaign. “Wide Load” is gonna need all that money to whup “Wicked Hill” in the primaries.
raising cash for his 3rd term?
prez is “cannibalizing” donors
That’s OK, he only eats white meat.
Obama taking the "non-profit" route for political fundraising is instructive---b/c non-profits are notorious for financial hanky-panky. It's ridiculously easy to siphon off huge amounts of money via a non-profit.
CASE IN POINT--infamous Madoff The Ponzi stung later investors but it was a front for facilitating money-laundering and tax evasion for Madoff's phony "philanthropist" pals.
Dozens of so-called "investments" were setup for Ponzi King Madoff by California "philanthropist" Stanley Chais. The self-styled "philanthropist" had collected a staggering $270 million between 1995-2008, and had been "donating" (read laundering) large sums to religious groups and other non-profits.
Beneficiaries of the Chais largess were the prestigious Weizmann Institute of Science---Technion-Israel Institute of Technology--Hebrew Univ of Jerusalem. (SOURCE The Wizard of Lies--Bernie Madoff and the Death of Trust- book by Diana Henriques.)
Chais has been honored for his "generosity" ----keep in mind Weizmann Institute of Science---Technion-Israel Institute of Technology--Hebrew U of Jerusalem---are all "non-profits"---perfect vehicles for money laundering and tax evasion.
THE NON-PROFIT MODUS OPERANDI (A SELECTION): There's literally gazillions of ways for a n/p to raise tons of money posing as an altruist (as Ohaha is doing)---then loot the organization and its donors. Here's a few.
(1) one non-profit writes a check to another n/p---the second n/p takes a cut and deposits the rest for the first n/p's use later.
(2) N/p budgets siphon off money via phantom employees listed on payrolls;
(3) N/p budget items list fictitious "building projects, legal fees, PR fees, accounting fees" and so on.
(4) N/p funds are "donated" to a religious or "needy" entity----the latter takes a cut, then launders the money via a deaf dumb and blind bank. NOTE Israel is the only place in the world where one can go to a bank w/ a suitcase full of cash and no one asks where it came from or if taxes were paid on it.
Democrats will eat their dead.....
I’m sorry.... Iforgot to add the usual final sentence
The Democrat party is a criminal enterprise
Gee, from reading this one could believe that you can buy the presidency or at least buy protection & favors...
Can you imagine the outrage & misery from the media if this were a Republican?
Hell, the Republicans can't let the Republicans catch up.
” - - - Obama bragged that he was so popular, he was being showered with campaign donations-—and that he was the very first billion dollar candidate?

If the DNC audits B. Hussein, they will find that all of his political stunts are aimed at generating “donations” for Obama’s RETIREMENT SLUSH FUND.
How about 118 golf outings in four years? Vacations in Hawaii, ski trips to Aspen, Vail & Sun Valley?
Theres only so much money to go around in Democratic circles. Theres a limited pool of resources, said Gilda Cobb Hunter, a South Carolina legislator and a member of the Democratic National Committee.
Several DNC members said in interviews that they werent told about Organizing for Actions formation until it was publicly announced in January. They said that when theyd complained, they were chastised and told by national and state party leaders not to speak publicly.
Gilda Cobb Hunter has been moved to the 'violent purge' list... she needs to read Russian and Chinese political history...or get her head out of the sand ... or get real ... or all of the above.
Lib DemocRATS are the biggest suckers going. They are funding Obama's retirement fund (OFA).
Dems whine---"Wed like to see some results for the money weve already given Obama." The suckers have seen it but can't believe it----endless golf outings? Vacations in Hawaii, ski trips to Aspen, Vail & Sun Valley? Mrs O's diamond jewelry collection, closets fullof designer dresses, buying his legacy, financing her campaign for elective office?
Yup---that's a classic Ponzi scheme---sweet talk the suckers into givimg them money for "a worthy cause" then spend it all on themselves....living large.
RICH-HATERS IN THE WH The Ohaha's say they hate the rich---but the O's know how to spend OPM. The family blew $1.4B on travel and entertainment for themselves and their numerous personal staffs last year: that's 2000 times more than what the entire British Royal Family cost the UK ($57.8M)----$27 million bucks a week is only the tip of the iceberg:
White House sources claim Michelle (with a staff of 24) went through $10M of taxpayer money last year on just her own private trips and shopping sprees, with one calling the First Lady's self-indulgent spending orgy -including extravagant massages, top-shelf booze, and five-star hotels 'disgusting'.
NRO tallied what taxpayers are paying for the Ohaha's living in the White House: $1.4 billion per year: Air Force One ($181,757 per hour), executive chef ($100,000 per year), three full-time White House calligraphers ($ 277,050 per year for the trio), chief of staff to the presidents dog ($102,000 per year), Ohaha's royal motorcade ($2.2 million).
$1.4 BILLION is the current annual cost of the White House just in household expenses, not including US policy operations for which the WH exists--administered by some 900 parasites---policy staff recruited by Ohaha.
Annually, Ohaha vacations cost $20 million (the low estimate for Ohaha's Hawaii vacay was $4 million, but the true cost is probably five times that); the first familys yearly health-care costs are $7 million; more than $6 million is spent on the White House grounds each year. Transportation costs were a staggering $346 million last year.
The O' kids were flying aroound to the Bahamas and Sun Valley.....while US kids were shut out of the WH supposedly due to sequestration Secret Service cutbacks. The O's galivanting teen daughter was spotted in NYC last week---with girlfriends---dining at the pricey Buddakan, scoffing up rock shrimp, edamame dumplings, short ribs, lobster fried rice........replete w/ five Secret Service guards dining nearby, while students her age were denied access to the people's house.
LEARNING TOUR? M/M O pictured w/ partly-shrunken Ivory Coast official 2009.
Malibu home of Ivory Coast dictator's son.
The oil-rich Ivory Coast has one of the worst human rights records in Africa whose rulers are accused of funneling millions of public monies into their own pockets. But now it looks like the son of the dictator----Teodoro---whose worldcomprised yachts, Bugattis, and Michael Jackson memorabiliacould come crashing down, according to Foreign Policy (via Curbed).
Foreign Policy's Ken Silverstein reported that after a four-year investigation into alleged extortion and laundering of $100 million in the US and "theft of public funds, or other corrupt conduct" back at home, the Justice Department has filed notice of a lawsuit involving the possible seizure of Tedoro's California mansion, and other assets.
And French investigators just seized millions of dollars' worth of his sports cars, while the Spanish government is investigating the entire Obiang clan. Teodoro reportedly hasn't spent much time stateside recently, in part thanks to various legal actions against him.
Just a peek inside the insane world of Teodoro---he first came to the U.S. to attend Pepperdine University in Malibu. While tuition cost just $3,400, he managed to blow through $50,000 in the first five months before dropping out. Source: Business insier--LA Weekly.
Teodoro is listed as the owner of this $35 million mansion on the Malibu coast, which he paid for in cash. It was the most expensive home sold in California in 2006, and has a tennis court, swimming pool and 4-hole golf course.
Teodoro's on the government payroll as "minister of agriculture and forestry," and supposedly makes just $5,000 per month. But his Malibu home contains $60,000 worth of rugs, a $58,000 home theater and a $1,734 pair of wine glasses.
