House 2012: National Republican Congressional Committee Has Twice as Much Cash as the Democrats

Posted Posted in Election 2012, National Republican Congressional Commitee, Rahm Emanuel

Well, the GOP did retake the House last year (see graphic above) – so, you would expect good fundraising from the special interests.
In the battle for control of the House of Representatives, the National Republican Congressional Committee has twice as much money in the bank as its Democratic counterpart.

The NRCC revealed late Monday that the party committee has $10.6 million cash on hand as of June 1, double the $5.3 million the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee reported having in the bank as of the end of last month.

The NRCC reported raising $4.6 million in May and a debt of $7 million. The DCCC brought in $3.8 million last month, with a debt of $6.6 million. The NRCC points out that they have raised $26.8 million so far this year, nearly double what they raised in the first half of 2009.

The Democrats will need to win 24 seats to regain the majority in the House. But, with Rahm Emanuel gone (elected Mayor of Chicago) and moderate Democrats having been largely replaced by Republicans (those recruited by Emanuel) the Democrats will be hard pressed to win back the House in 2012.

The money gap will make it even more difficult and unlikely.

Chris, American voters now understand how they were hoodwinked by Rahm Emanuel (now President Obama’s Chief of Staff) in the 2006 election cycle by portraying Democrats as conservatives in red-leaning Congressional Districts. Of course, said Democrats post-election, have voted for Speaker Pelosi’s Far-Left San Francisco agenda – in lockstep.

Now, voters will hold them accountable.

What is the difference between now and 2006?

No, it is not the fact that Rahm is no longer there (as the Chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee) to hold the Democratic Congressional candidate’s hand. Since this time, the internet has expanded and voters have more current information – like how their own Congressional Representatives have voted. YouTube, Twitter and Facebook have all contributed to the idiom: “You can run but you can’t hide.”

This entire matter with former Democrat Congressman Eric Massa is seemingly slimey.

Not long after Eric Massa joined Congress in January 2009, several male staff members began to feel uncomfortable with the sexually loaded language their boss routinely used, according to accounts relayed to the House ethics committee.

As the months passed, rumors began to circulate in the office that the married New York Democrat had sexually propositioned young male staffers and interns — allegations, according to two sources with knowledge of the inquiry, that included Massa groping at least two aides.

In the second week of February, Massa’s deputy chief of staff contacted the office of Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer for help in dealing with the accusations. Once Hoyer (D-Md.) himself became aware of the claims, he delivered an ultimatum to Massa’s office: Report the staffers’ complaints to the ethics committee within 48 hours, or Hoyer would do it for them.

Last week, the panel’s investigation became public, and Massa resigned, effective Monday.

Massa went on television Tuesday night for the first time since the allegations surfaced, but his comments in two cable television interviews contradicted earlier statements, serving only to raise more questions.

The freshman Democrat told Fox News Channel host Glenn Beck that “not only did I grope [a staffer], I tickled him until he couldn’t breathe,” then said hours later on CNN’s “Larry King Live” that “it is not true” that he groped anyone on his staff.

He told Beck that he resigned from the House because he made the mistake of “getting too familiar with my staff” members, but he told King that he left primarily for health reasons. Massa, 50, has survived non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, but he said he is afraid that he is facing his “third major cancer-recurrence scare.”

On Sunday, Massa said he was set up by powerful Democrats such as White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) as part of an effort to remove opponents of health-care reform legislation. He backed away from that claim Tuesday, telling Beck, “I wasn’t forced out. I forced myself out.”

Whatever the “true” story is, it will not reflect well on the White House as it twists arms to force passage of Obamacare. The press will be watching for the perks and threats as Obama and Rahm Emanuel attempt to salvage their voter unpopular health care reform legislation.

The Chief of Staff of the President of the United States being rude, nude and twisting political arms in the Congressional showers?

I suppose so.

“Rahm Emanuel is son of the devil’s spawn, Rep. Eric Massa (D-NY) said. “He is an individual who would sell his mother to get a vote. He would strap his children to the front end of a steam locomotive.”

Rep. Massa describes a confrontation with Emanuel in a shower: “I am showering, naked as a jaybird, and here comes Rahm Emanuel, not even with a towel wrapped around his tush, poking his finger in my chest, yelling at me.”

President Obama will need alot more than intimidation to pass Obamacare. Can impeachment calls be too far down the beltway?

This is why Obamacare with the “public option” will stall in the Congress – Libs must be conservative.

The Blue Dog Democrats will NOT wish to put their political asses on the line and incur the wrath of senior citizen voters in their red tilting districts.

Rahm Emanuel, Obama’s Chief of Staff, helped these Blue Dog Democrats win favor with conservative voters to get them elected. Rahm won’t be there with them when they face the Congressional midterm elections next year.

Since the implementation of Obamacare taxation will occur before the reforms begin (ya gotta pay for it, after all), there will be sufficient time for a new Congress (less dominated by Democrats) to reverse the entire program.

So, will many members of Congress, except those in safe districts be willing to step up?
