“It’s like ‘Lord of the Flies’ . . . [Obama] is cannibalizing donors”

Even the most diehard Obama-bots are suffering Obama fatigue. As yet another big bucks NYC fundraiser is announced for May 13, some donors are getting fed up with the endless campaign.

Now they know how the rest of us feel.

But Obama’s visit has annoyed political insiders who want to see results for the dollars they’ve already forked over. “We’ve got a mayoral race he’ll be getting in the way of,” said one. “We should be focusing on that and individual congressional candidates. It’s like ‘Lord of the Flies’ . . . [Obama] is cannibalizing donors.”

And others expressed fund-raiser fatigue: “It is stunning that [Obama] is back here fund-raising. We’d like to see some results for the money we’ve already given. And his impact on the traffic congestion in the city is the perfect example of why we need an infrastructure bill that he’s never put any muscle behind.”

In case they missed it, there was a trillion-dollar stimulus rammed through four years ago. First prize goes to the Obama donor who can tell us where a single dollar of that went.

    Ah, nothing more satisfying than a liberal who is starting to realize that they’ve been had. Maybe they’ll finally wake up and finally get what the rest of us have been saying since 2007-2008. Then again, maybe not.

    I can tell you where a few dollars of the stimulus money went: it went to signs along the highway touting how great the stimulus was. Other than that, you’ve got me! And, I’m not an Obama donor so I know that first prize just ain’t gonna happen!

    Umm, actually, his donors are the only people who could possibly tell us where the stimulus money went.

    How could anybody be so daft as to think that any kind of Infrastructure Bill Obama could create would have an impact on NYC traffic?

    Good point. Interesting thought, though; wouldn’t his donors be the most likely to favor wealth redistribution? As in “take money from little donors and give it to big donors”. Heh. Hadn’t thought of that before. Makes me smile.. a little.

    As anyone who lives just north of new york city can tell you, lots of the ‘stimulus’ money went to paving, and re paving, and re-re paving, and then re-re-re-paving the same 5 mile stretch of i-287! and some of it also went to put up a big sign that says ‘your federal highway funds at work”

    He keeps doing what works; and hitting up the True Believers,
    who continue to kick in, keeps working.

    Solyndra!

    –oh wait, you said “single dollar”. Solyndra was actually 500 million of ‘em.

    Do elected federal politicians get to keept the unspent campaign money? If so, that may allow Obama to be very wealthy and/or become a political funding power long after he leaves office.

    “Cannibalizing”?…isn’t that racist?

    I’m not sure, but I think it’s now legal in California and Colorado for medical purposes. :)

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    I love it. It’s Obama’s world, don’tcha know, and the rest of us are just donors. Let him suck up all the dollars these idiots have. I have zero problem with all these people dropping cash on him now since the more they max out now, the worse things will be for them all in 2014 and 2016.

    Whine all you want donors. You can’t quit the dear leader. These people are proof that money doesn’t buy brains

    Should have posted one of the numerous pix of Barry with a fly on his face to go with this article.
