And then we have this...http://washingtonexaminer.com/politics/washington-secrets/2012/05/moveon-warns-‘we-might-have-pull-plug’/670461

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 five 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.

“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.”

The homepage of MoveOn, which helped organize the 2004 anti-war movement, includes a “chip in” button preset at $8.

Actually soliciting money, now? How low will this president get? This truly is amazing.

I saw on a web site the other day you could enter a lottery to win dinner with Obama. Of course you didn't need to donate...

Am I not understanding something?

So when conservatives are going to spend $1 billion dollars = good
When liberal groups try to raise money = bad

Does that sum it up about right?

I like the "shadowy conservative groups" part. That is far ahead of having to abandon efforts to elect a real Cherokee Indian maiden in Mass. Takes the right wing conspiracy Hillary knew was afoot to a new level.

Fear mongering works well for them; Republicans are going to poison the earth, run old people over a cliff, etc, etc.

What else does he have to talk about? The economy?

What do conservatives call Move On or George Soros? I am sure it is something nice and heart warming

I want to take this opportunity to thank you, Honestchieffan. Without you I wouldn't have known.

It appears that an organization is trying to raise money and telling people what will happen if that money isn't raised. Amazing stuff.

Anxiously awaiting your next thread, which I presume will be about the wetness of water.

Just goes to show how "Hope and Change" is no more and so much for the "billion dollar war chest" to be "divvyed around". The Marxists are hurting for $$.

Yeah, it's our own Justice Dept. led by Eric Holder !! This is not only a conflict of interest it is 'REPREHENSIBLE' !

#### –

We’ve gotta wake up.

Everywhere I go, people are telling me that “Obama has it in the bag.” Newsflash: nothing is in the bag.

We’re being attacked by Republicans from every which way. Americans see the President out there fighting for the middle class, but they’ve got the Koch Brothers’ Super PAC hollerin’ in one ear and Karl Rove’s Super PAC squawkin’ in the other.

We’ve gotta go on offense, talk about how the middle class is in a struggle for its very existence, and hold these wingnut Republicans in Congress accountable.

Midnight Deadline: Donate $3 or more right now to help Democrats go on offense against radical Republicans.

I promise you: we can win this in November, but not if Democrats sit on their hands.

It starts today — donate $3 or whatever you can to defeat these radical Republicans.

C’mon now!
