"Ann, I'll be blunt."

Emails David Axelrod.
They are trying to buy this election, and we're the only ones who are standing in their way. Don't wait any longer to take ownership of this campaign.
I.e., send them money. Because they want to outbid the others who are trying to buy the election.

"... and we're trying to steal it!"

Michael K said...

Who are the guys who turned off AVS and CVV checking again ? Well, the Saudis sent him to Harvard so they just are protecting their investment.

Revenant said...

They raised $180 million last month, 90% of it from anonymous donors.

Your lovin' give me a thrill
But your lovin' don't pay my bills.

AllenS said...

Well, this Axelrod character doesn't know you at all, does he? To get you to comtribute, he needs to push your emotional buttons. Like, you know, the opposition are saying things that might, might, might look like racism, which is something that does, does, does turn you off. Many's the time when you've stated your emotional nonsense about how such and such lost you.

bagoh20 said...

What if Obama loses for lack of your $20? Racism continues for anothet 200 years because of your cheap ass not thinking it was important enough to spend $20 on.

I hope you can live with that, Racist

Sorun said...

I wonder how many of those emails were sent to China?

Rick67 said...

And if/when they raise more money it shows how much people support them!

Heads they win, tails we lose. Mangy hypocrites.

techsan said...

Was that donation request sent from a .cn TLD?

When do you think that the purveyors of the "they're buying the election" memes are going to realize that the secret ballot forecloses any possibility of buying an election?

Steve Austin said...

Buy the election?

Uggh. Heard all that crap two months ago. Citizens United! Citiizens United!

Then O goes on to completely outspend Romney with 300 million in negative TV advertising to buy himself a five point lead so we hear nothing about being outspent.

Now we are back to Citizens United.

edutcher said...

We can only hope you sent him this in return.

PS "We are the only ones who are standing in their way"?

Oy!

Actually, it more like Romney and Ryan are the only ones between them and stealing off everything.

rhhardin said...

Goffman said that the guy who tells you he is tearing up his prepared remarks to speak to you frankly has torn up the wrong speech.

Sammy said...

Shit me, these guys raised 181 million last month... Most of corrupt, but still , how much more money do they need in the next 30 days....

Are these fu-kers planing to pay people to vote what's with this never ending need for more and more money... Romney's not even close to 181 million.


Who said everything these Chicago crooks accuse their opponents of , that's what they are doing.

What would Romney's margin of victory be , if Obama didn't have the media in his pocket, Hollywood his re-election committee, 2 to 1 money advantage... I'am thinking Reagan victory under /over.

pauldar said...

Dear Mr. Axelrod, since you are being blunt, I might as well be too.

Hell no. Hope that was not too blunt for ya.

Pogo said...

Apparently, Obama can't win with $1Billion, but he can win with $1B plus $3.

Dear Madam,

In re: Confidential Election Proposal

Having consulted with my colleagues and based on the information gathered from the DNC, I have the privilege to request your assistance to transfer a cell phone, health care, food stamps, and permanent unemployment payments into your accounts. The above sum resulted from an over-invoiced contract, executed, commissioned and paid for just 4 years ago by a foreign contractor. Since then the fund has been in a suspense account here at The Central Bank Of Saudi Apex Bank.

We are now ready to transfer the fund overseas and that is where you come in. It is important to inform you that we are forbidden to donate from a foreign account; that is why we require your assistance. For only $3US donation to Obama.com, you will receive these moneys.

If you find this proposal acceptable, we shall require the following documents: your current cell phone number, your credit card number, and a pledge to vote for Mr. Obama in November 2012.

Thank you.

"Ann, I'll be blunt. We really don't give a crap about American citizens, we really just want to bankrupt the country, murder a bunch of U.S. troops , take away guns, and enact the totalitarian government of our dreams, with Mein Obama as dictator-for-life, just like our model, Chavez. We need fascistic liars like Inga the Lying Obama Whore and Garbage Pail to be willing to sacrifice their children for the cause, and they do just that.

Now give us your paycheck, peasant."

Michelle Dulak Thomson said...

Don't wait any longer to take ownership of this campaign.

Hey. If you take ownership of something, don't you get to, y'know, run it?

(I seriously want to know)

Sometimes I wonder if they even realize that they can vote however they please because of that secret ballot. They might think that they have to vote the way the union tells them, or their teachers tell them, or whatever figure they hold in authority tells them how to vote.

They don't realize that they can vote one way and tell those "authorities" that they've voted as they were told to, even if they've voted the opposite.

It's the actual vote cast, in secret, in the voting booth, that counts, not what they might tell anyone else: pollsters, exit pollsters, or persons in authority.

pm317 said...

Send them money? Why all those fake credit card donations not enough?

Astro said...

Well, those political operatives from Chicago do know about getting your attention with something blunt.

Well, that's Trayvon's daddy

Axelrod was helping Barry with debate prep.

Sammy said...

"Anne, I'll be blunt "

Obama was a major disappointment these last 4 years, you know that saying , "everything he touching turns to gold", well with Obama it turns to shit.

So on top of a disaster of a first term, we've been reduced to celebrating 7.8 % unemployment rate and saddling the population with part- time MC jobs , unpopular legislative achievements and getting his ass handed to him in the debate WE need money, like babies need milk, so we can saturate the airways with negative ads, pay people to vote and do other unhanded things better left unsaid... like the last jobs report.wink , wink.....

So We need more money and it looks like you haven't been very generous , seems you aren't greeting with the program, here are your options:

$50
$100
$200

We prefer anything under $200.

Palladian said...

Things that aren't very sharp are usually blunt, aren't they?

Paul said...

And what about all those untraceable foreign credit card donations to Obama?

WHO really IS trying to buy the election?

Carnifex said...

Guys, the foreign money scandal ain't what it's cracked up to be. If the only ones who know about are people that a politi-junkies, and half of them are libs, what traction do you imagine this story is gonna get? The LSM won't cover 100's of dead mexicans, 1,000's of dead Americans, 1,000,000's in money given to crony capitalist. Why the hell would they even mention China, Russia, and the ME, buying the Zero's loyalty?

These guys are hanging on by their fingernails, trying to last out to the election. If Zero wins, it's over. We become a banana republic with a dictatorship. It really is that stark a choice. And if Zero wins, there's gonna' be blood on the streets. And also if he looses.

JAL said...

Someone should tell the WH, DNC, Axelrod et. al. that using the professor's first name is a step too close.

Carnifex said...

Ps.

I won't come on here and tell you I told you so, if you promise to come on here and apologize for voting for the fascist fuck.

Ann Althouse said...

Actually, I'm decided now. Had a revelation over the weekend.

Please do tell us what your revelation was without telling us who you are voting for.

reformed trucker said...

Damn, a few others beat me to the blunt joke.

Besides, I wouldn't pass it to Axleknob.

Left Bank of the Charles said...

Maybe they are capitalists, after all.

Craig Landon said...

Hows about being the un-Moses and not sharing your interpretation of your personal burning bush.

That many here want either affirmation or a beating stick is not your problem.

John said...

All those in favor of revelations...

kentuckyliz said...

Pogo beat me to the Nigerian phishing scam e-mail. Well played sir.

Seven Machos said...

It was revealed to Althouse that she has been an ardent supporter of Romney since 2007, inf not before, and therefore she should support Romney in the 2012 general election.

So it shall be written. So it shall be done.

Nora said...

Yeh, "They are trying to buy this election" but Obama already got much more money

Kirk Parker said...

"Had a revelation over the weekend."

That does sound kinda Mormon-ish, doesn't it?

Nathan Alexander said...

You don't have to tell us who you plan to vote for, but the revelation would be nice to know.

Perhaps there are other undecided voters who could benefit from your insight?

Matthew Sablan said...

Usually, when asking for a bailout, it is best to do so from a position of strength. Not after... whatever that was last debate. This is more like asking for pity dollars than a donation.
