Have you ever had an aunt or uncle whom you simply couldn’t stand, but every year on your birthday, they sent you an amazingly generous check? Well, that’s sort of what it’s like to be a Democrat having to deal with Barack “Albatross” Obama in 2014. Ask most of them, and you’ll find that they’re bolting from this president faster than an actress fleeing Phil Spector’s house. But according to the Bloomberg report above, Barry’s fundraisers are pulling in big league dollars for Democrats this year, and they’re gladly accepting it.
There’s nothing wrong with any of this, of course…apart from the fact that many Dems pocketing Obama money for their campaigns are the same lawmakers who whine about campaign finance reform. In reality, they’re lucky Mr. Prezzo has been able to raise any money at all, given that so many of his rich Hollywood friends have grown tired of him too. Perhaps some of the more heavily-embattled Democrats should just bypass Obama completely, ask George Clooney and Steven Spielberg for their dough, and eliminate the lame duck middleman altogether.
Still, the whole situation is a win/win for Obama and his party. He gets to do very little, schmooze with his famous friends, and generate plenty of cash from their deep pockets with almost no effort. Then, he sends those Benjamins down to a bunch of fellow Democrats who don’t want to see his face. Obama gets to party, and Dems get their money without having to stand next to him. It’s a liberal dream come true.
