From Politico (Via HotAir):
Earlier this month, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid made a personal appeal to Barack Obama: Help me grow the Democrats’ Senate majority by sharing some of the $77 million you’ve got in the bank.
Obama’s campaign said no.
Although Democratic insiders say a better deal could still come, the Obama campaign so far has agreed only to let Senate Democrats use Obama’s name — as well as those of his wife and running mate — in mail and online fundraising pitches. The campaign has planned no joint fundraising events with House or Senate Democrats, and insiders say none is likely to be held before Election Day.
In rejecting a direct request from his Senate leader, Obama has put a fine point on the financial pressures he’s feeling as the presidential race turns toward the fall.
If the Obama campaign isn’t helping out the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee by helping it elect a dead-lock proof majority in the US Senate, how does Obama expect to deliver on his campaign promises? He hasn’t exactly been the embodiment of bi-partisanship.
It’s another case where words are not supported by action. Ironic isn’t it? The only thing the DSCC has at this point is hope.
