Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and Senatorial Campaign Committee won’t get any of Obama’s stash

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) were told yesterday by President Obama’s top aides – Jim Messina and David Plouffe – they won’t be getting any cash from Obama for America or the Democratic National Committee.

Yeah, funds just won’t be flowing like they used to. Congressional Democrats are on their own this year.

Democratic congressional leaders, including Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, have privately sought as much as $30 million combined from Obama for America and the Democratic National Committee — a replay of the financial help they received from Obama in 2008 and 2010.

But that’s not going to happen, top Obama aides Jim Messina and David Plouffe told Reid and Pelosi in back-to-back meetings on Capitol Hill on Thursday, according to sources familiar with the high-level talks. It was a stark admission from a presidential campaign once expected to rake in as much as $1 billion of just how closely it is watching its own bottom line.

    Obama’s watching his bottom line? lol Or is he just being selfish. Barry makes the Clintons – the poster couple for greed – look like Little Sisters of the Poor.

    We will see more entrenchment from the embattled Prince of Narcissism as he has already shown many times that he is happy to throw anyone under the bus to preserve his own hide.

    The only thing of any importance to Obama is his reelection so he can flit from head table to golf course all over the world.

    Yup. President Obama has to pay off his supporters and doesn’t have enough money to pay for other Dems. Hs he’s becoming a Conservative and making them pay their own way. LOL

    Phil is on to it! How many House and Senate seats will be in play? Without Money from His Royal Highness, Bary the First, Dems are going to have a harder time campaigning.
    This can only bode well for Republicans seeking House and Senate seats. House AND Senate majorities, anyone?
    Watch out for back door deals to quite whinny Dems.
