Obama's Lame-Duck Antidote: Money, Money, Money


RUSH: Do you realize, folks, the Democrat Party, I had this in the Stack yesterday, I didn't get a chance to get to it.  The Democrat Party overall has a fear that Obama, in his new campaign organization, Organizing for Action, is going to siphon money away from them?  This is a McClatchy news story: "President Barack Obama’s decision to launch his own political organization has some Democrats wondering: Is he just in it for himself? Obama’s new group, Organizing for Action..." It's not a new group.  It's just a new name.  It used to be called Organizing for America.  It was the website that he used to get elected in 2008.  When they got into the White House, they turned it into an extension of the campaign because his presidency has just been a campaign. 

It hasn't been a presidency.  It's a campaign that continues.  And now in the second term they've renamed it to Organizing for Action.  It's nothing new.  It's just a continuation of an already existing political action group, and by design.  "Organizing for Action, will focus on his policy agenda -- not on electing Democratic candidates -- by raising unlimited amounts of cash and accessing the president’s secret list of 20 million supporters, volunteers and donors."  None of which is going to be shared with the Democrat Party.  Now, we're into the fifth year of this guy, and the Democrats are just now starting to ask themselves this question? 

The operation, Organizing for Action, will not share any money or resources. It will not share, what is called the "priceless" Obama e-mail list with the Democrat National Committee or any of the campaign committees in the House and Senate.  No governors, no legislators, are gonna have any of the information or money that this group has access to.  It has no plans to coordinate any efforts with the Democrat Party, and this has led some Democrats "to worry that it will take money and manpower away from the party as it heads into the 2014 elections for control of Congress."

What's their first clue?  When has Obama ever shared anything with them?  When has Obama ever given the impression that he has any interest in their success?  There isn't any evidence of that.  So what are they expecting?  The Organizing for Action organization exists for one reason:  so that Obama can continue to position himself as outside Washington.  So he can continue to position himself as somebody running and behaving every day as though he opposes everything that's happening, while he's literally causing it to happen. He will escape any such attachment by virtue of the existence of this organization, which allows him to have a perpetual, never-ending campaign.  And what's he campaigning against?  What's happening in America right now. 

He's campaigning against the debt that he caused.  He's campaigning against the deficit that he caused.  He's campaigning against health care that he fixed.  And this is all done, brilliantly so, to make sure that nobody attaches Obama or his agenda to the direction the country's going.  It's so that Obama can continue to portray himself and be portrayed as somebody deeply troubled by everything going on and working very hard to fix it.  It's to allow Obama to be able to blame all of this on the Republicans.  The never-ending campaign.  He will not be seen as actually governing.  This is why he has not presented a budget that ever had a chance of being enacted.  This is why there will never be any compromise with the Republicans on anything significant because that would put his fingerprints on what then follows, and that is what hasn't happened and won't. 

The objective is to win the House of Representatives in 2014 and keep the Senate and then have unopposed control of the government for two years, and never become a lame duck. And to keep himself in a higher profile than the actual presidential race for 2016.  Make no mistake.  Obama has made it his mission to not be rendered insignificant because of the next presidential campaign.  He is gonna keep himself more visible, more present, higher profile than even that campaign.  He is not gonna be a lame duck, if he can help it.  He may not pull this off, but this is the objective, to avoid any of this lame-duck business, to avoid having two years where nothing happens.

He's gunning for 2014, Democrats win the House, he owns everything in the legislative branch, coupled with the executive branch, unopposed, whatever he wants, executive action, executive order, for whatever the Democrats won't give him.  And at that point he may then start talking about sharing some money with them, if he has to, to buy their votes.  He probably won't have to, but at that point he might engage in such.
