    Team Obama still raising money -- off Sandy Hook shootings

    Team Obama still raising money--off Sandy Hook shootings | WashingtonExaminer.com

    They won the campaign handily and even had $14.2 million to spare, but the Obama-Biden campaign is still raising money, this time off the president's comments about the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings in Connecticut.

    In email from chief campaign advisor David Axelrod that urges supporters to watch President Obama's moving address to the community of Newtown, Conn., there are two links that open a page with a video player featuring the president's speech and two donate buttons asking for $15-$1,000 for his campaign.

    "The next chapter begins today. Stand with President Obama for the next four years," headlines the donation page.
    I'm sure it's just a coincidence

    So basically he got an email from a politician's campaign, which is still intact because its a handy way to get messages out even though Obama's done with campaigns and he discovered both:
    1) A video of that politician giving a speech
    2) A way to donate to said campaign which is a standard part of any politician's, Obama included, campaign emails.

    Should I be shocked or something?

    I bet if you go to his campaign website right now you can find a page of both him speaking about the shooting and a way to donate both on the same page. Jesus christ do people have no shame?

    Why would the Obama campaign need money if Obama will never run for anything ever again?

    That's a question that needs an answer. I understand that the Obama camp worships at the altar of Never-Let-A-Crisis-Go-To-Waste, but shouldn't there be some at least superficially plausible rationale for the fund raising?

    That is sure to be ignored by most of the MSM. Perhaps the idea is to transfer these funds to (currently) less popular/valuable demorats in need of "help" to carry that "fundamental transformation of America" torch. Obama still has four more years to accomplish that original mission and needs help in congress from the "blue" states/cities and to defeat those mean TP folks that stand in his way. Yes he can!

    Yes you should be shocked. It's disgusting and reprehensible.

    The fact that you aren't shocked, because you are willing to rationalize and excuse anything Obama and his campaign cronies do, is quite alarming actually. Further proof that Obama followers belong to a cult.

    Obama further used the Sandy Hook shooting to push for tax hikes. Let me guess. You don't care about that either

    Never let a crisis go to waste. We get it though. There just "happened" to be donate buttons there for a campaign that is supposed to be over directly linked to what was supposed to a speech that was not about politics. It's not like these highly skilled webmasters and campaign cronies knew what they were doing. Nah, David Axelrod would NEVER stoop so low right?

    Do you have no shame?

    If Obama will never run for anything agian, can spending the money on anything but a campaign be considered a crime?

    he can use his campaign funds as gifts to other political campaigns
    wasn't that long ago that the pols could pocket what was in the war chest upon leaving office
    fortunately, that practice ended
    who knows, maybe he will seed hillary's campaign ... or pay off her remaining campaign debt
    maybe use it to launch Michelle's political career
    lots of ways to spend money for political favors
    just ask big business and its lobbyists
