DEAN UNDER FIRE FROM PARTY DEMS; NEARLY ALL CASH SPENT
Mon Jan 30 2006 10:52:31 ET

Democratic leaders on Capitol Hill are privately bristling over Howard Dean’s management of the Democratic National Committee and have made those sentiments clear after new fundraising numbers showed he has spent nearly all the committee’s cash and has little left to support their efforts to gain seats this cycle, ROLL CALL reports.

Congressional leaders were furious last week when they learned the DNC has just $5.5 million in the bank, compared to the Republican National Committee’s $34 million.

Senate and House Minority Leaders Harry Reid (Nev.) and Nancy Pelosi (Calif.), along with the Senate and House campaign committee chairmen Charles Schumer (N.Y.) and Rahm Emanuel (Ill.), have made their concerns -- directly or indirectly -- known to Dean, claims the paper.

Emanuel was particularly upset last week upon seeing the latest DNC numbers.

“A lot of people are scratching their heads as to what’s going on,” said one senior Democratic aide.

Another Democratic source familiar with the party fundraising apparatus said there is “obvious displeasure” among the leaders.

Who would have thought the democrats were bad with money?

Hot damn....no money for the dems. Too bad that they can't afford to run this go round....

Dean spent a lot of money to be Mr. Bigman.

I was getting ready to email this story to a friend who works in Washington. When I got to my email, he has sent me one about the campaign season and how it was all about money. Fitting

Not only spending it frivolously but when you only represent a smaller and smaller segment of the population, you can expect smaller and smaller contributions.......

Had an arguement with a co-worker regarding (of all things!) O'Reilly. I asked him why'd you think he is so popular? Conspiracy? He had no answer...so I told him. O'Reilly speaks for/to a large segment of the population, thats why. Many people think and feel as he does...DUH!!! Seems simple, but Libs cannot grasp it. If you speak for a minority, don't be suprised when only a minority gives a crap about you.

I heard that the dems and the labor unions blew close to 200 million just to defeat Gov. Ahnolds initiatives this past November. That money had to come from somewhere.

Somebody call George Soros, looks like he will be needed again.

OTOH, remember all the hype about Soros and the lunatic fringe taking over the dems? I wonder if they are going to veer hard left and try to suck up some cash from Soros, Bono, Streisand etc.?

The kook fringe is the Dems biggest cash cow.

Feinsteins support base is also aging. Besides guns, she wasn't completely insane. Her successor will be a true bitch with a lot of national votes behind her, and likely be 10x the cnut Feinstein is.

Independent Rep. Bernie Sanders is the top candidate to replace him, receiving the support of state Democrats and Vermont's Progressive Party.


Damn....guess he can't be too INDEPENDENT if he's being endorsed by the dems!

That's fucked up!
Link Posted: 1/30/2006 6:47:44 PM EDT
Howard Dean has made sure no Dems challenged Bernie Sanders.

Sanders is not replacing a Dem so Dean could do that.

All the money went to the kitty fund.
