Tom Delay: "....we Republicans got whipped. "
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2008/nov/05/the-dem... /

Some quotes I took out of the article. With more good stuff in there!


"When it comes to fund raising, organization and ground game, we Republicans got whipped

We shouldn't kid ourselves: Democrats breaking this precedent had nothing to do with their campaign-finance principles, and everything to do with the fact they could afford to

...with plenty left over to compete in even Republican-leaning areas.

...Organizations like America Votes and ACORN are so closely tied to Democrat politics that they might as well be arms of the party apparatus. The George Soros-funded Shadow Party of organizations run by former Clinton administration officials and liberal leaders -- the Center for American Progress, the Thunder Road Group, MoveOn.org, Media Matters, etc. -- has created a second left-leaning party free from restrictions imposed by official regulations -- including McCain-Feingold.

... In 2012, Mr. Obama -- whether as an incumbent or a seasoned veteran challenger -- will no doubt raise more than $1 billion for his campaign conglomerate. And that's not wrong. It's impressive -- and intimidating."

5. And Tom DeLay is an authoritative expert on what is "not wrong"?
I'd say yes, only in that he's a great example of what NOT to do.

What's right and wrong have to do with compliments?

TIME!

At this point, I have little use for money, due to physical issues. I am only hoping to be able to leave my son (only child) as much as I can. However, I thought the best thing I could for him this time was donate to Obama as much as I legally could and to other Dems. He agreed.

That's what happens when you hit bottom. You push off with your legs (if only in your imnagination) and fight your back up to the top, where you can start breathing again. Dems are breathing again. Watch out.
