Well it turns out that this was just spending us more than it's taking in thing is contagious now the president's campaign spent more than -- have been.
Last month Nancy -- -- is having trouble.
Getting money from Democrats right now much of the Democratic Caucus refusing to kick -- for congressional races that -- not one bit surprised.
-- -- -- Well it's been a very interesting month the president is just gone all in to try to define Romney -- -- -- he has -- money advantage because Romney technically doesn't have as much money could use here.
And try to define him and and he's spending money like -- drunken sailor -- whatever the.
Expression is they're gonna have money problems come August the the but but the Democrat the more interest in -- enemy is what's happening in the caucus.
On 13 of the Democrats are not kick ponied up there do want.
Because they I mean what's this is about saved my -- -- -- your -- -- this is called every this is that this is a sign to me.
That they are.
You know take care me first we're in trouble as though they've given up trying to take to -- I think that's that you know if you want to read a sophisticated sign that would be a but I want to raise another point about the -- in both parties because it's one of the things it has done to think it is centralized control congressional elections.
In the leadership in Washington the campaign committees it is partly responsible for corrupting our system.
It is many candidates have to be very much toe the line rather than run as independents and here's the problem.
Those in this how serious -- donations are that defines whether or not -- -- committee chairmanship.
Or ranking member status and whatever you raise money from people to buy offices.
In congress in both parties it's restored to know once -- -- of you're not.
Paying along -- it means you've said you -- and that's what I'm saying is it's bad enough when you really say is I don't care what you do to me I don't think I'm gonna be here without this.
So on the fact the one is that it is and I Nancy Pelosi -- just I think throws save my but I think to start with pro -- my but they voted for for speaker.
His first pro saved my but secondly is -- you people gonna do and thirdly.
That you need to meet you -- the right point boy if you wanna say fish draw on the win it tells you what the Democrats in the house think of their chances of winning.
Because in other years it's like the republic I mean.
People were throwing money at the committees because they felt they were gonna win and they would get -- -- see anything on this going on in the senate.
I don't digital -- that's a different beast but they have the same model it's interesting that there's almost never been any discussion until this kind of pops up.
That we have this -- system didn't work remember we used to have congressman if you remember 2030 years -- Basically congress toll party leaders and even their president's well you know take a hike on the to do what I wanna do and I take -- myself.
They can do that anymore and that's because every -- become so dependent on these committees the -- tell you which consultants you can hire.
In what message you should use even of the messages are stupid messages.
