Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Thanks to Obama’s attacks, Rove’s group now raising gobs of cash to target “safe” Dem seats

Or, as Caroline May headlines, “Obama is Rove’s fundraiser-in-chief”.  Heh.

American Crossroads, a Republican organization founded with the encouragement of Karl Rove and former RNC chief Ed Gillespie, is reaping the benefits that come with receiving criticism from an administration polling below 50%. Since the White House began attacking the conservative group last week for not disclosing their donors, the organization has raised $13.3 million — destroying their original fundraising goals and allowing them to target traditionally “low-risk” Democrat House seats.

“There is no question that the increased visibility that the White House has given us in the last week has increased our fundraising,” Crossroads spokesman Jonathan Collegio told The Daily Caller. “We have blown past our original $50 million fundraising goal and have increased our projection to $65 million by November 2.”

Sample donation comments:

Many of these donations came as a positive response to the administration’s targeted vitriol. A $250 donation from an unnamed physician, for example, came with the comment, “President Obama made me aware of you and I’m sure I’m not alone. Good luck and get the GOP as many as they can win.”

Another donor wrote, “Keep up the good work. Don’t be intimidated by threats from Obama and the Democrats. The more they do it, the more we will contribute.”

“President Obama referred me! I, too, am tired of the bullying by the federal government. So, please accept my small donation as a token of my appreciation for all of your efforts towards stopping the most destruction government ever to take residence in Washington!” penned another.

This week the group is laying down $2 million in eight house districts including NY-20, NY-22, NY-25, OH-18, HI 1, CA 3, IN-2, FL-22. “These are seats where Democrats until now thought they were safe. One of them, for example, NY-22, has not had a competitive campaign since 1992,” Collegio said.

President Kick#ss seems to be doing his level best to kick his own party’s #ss.

  1. Looks like Obama’s plan backfired. It’s too funny! I guess Obama and his party ended shooting themselves in the foot again.
