Agreed. And any person who runs on the Democratic ticket expecting funding from the DNC should be required to publicly pledge support for marriage equality.

I read the other day that The Obamaniac Campaign is projected to raise 800 million dollars and refuses to give a single cent to teh DNC or any congressional candidates.

I read that The Obamaniac administration wants to keep the House at least in Republican hands, so they can blame them for things not getting done, rather than have Democrats have a majority of both houses of congress, wher ethey would bear all of the blame wehn things don't get done. A Significant number of congressional Democrats are against The Obamaniac administration schemes, but their opposition isn't highlighted, and thus the Republicans take all the blame.

Substitute the "n" for an "r", and you'd have the word "rational"...

Ooooh, yet another of your Obama consipracy theories!!!

This one is about as probable as when you claimed Obama ordered Reid not to allow a vote in the Senate on repealing DADT, and that Obama would never sign the bill repealing DADT.

Shhhh - you're only encouraging him!! Haven't we heard enough from this paranoid, xenophobic, racist, libertarian, Lutheran, rock-loving-disco-hating, fashion-denying, short, celebate Obamaphobe?

from the above-referenced article:

"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.

"Messina and Plouffe told the two Hill leaders that there would be no cash transfers to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee from OFA or the DNC, at least not before Election Day, the sources said.

"Plouffe is a senior political adviser to the president and served as campaign manager for Obama in 2008, while Messina is Obama’s campaign manager this cycle."

So much for "conspiracy theories".......

The Committee to re-elect the President is a separate legal entity from the DNC. It is inappropriate for funds to flow from one to the other.

I disagree that Marriage Equality should be a policy position of the DNC. Very bad strategy.

And yet NO WHERE in the article does it say ANYTHING similiar to your claim that Obama wants the House to remain in the GOPs hands.

NO WHERE.

If fact, it specifically say they ARE working to get the 25 seats necessary to get the House back and keep the Senate. They just aren't going to be transferring any money from Obama's reelection campaign because their #1 goal is to get the President reelected, as it should be.

So once again you lie as you attempt to stretch the truth. Now let's see if you're man enough to admit it, or will you stonewall with continued denials for months like you did with your DADT lies.

Theo, you'd better brush up on your English spelling if you are going to post here - you use words that are incorrect and give your post a different connotation than what you might have intended...

Now, I am of German descent and I can say this: Don't you have a brown shirt to wash?
