    Obama was 500 to 1 when he first started his campaign to try to become president of the United States, he also happened to be black. Seems to if not refute certainly lessen the impact of your thoughts.

    Nothing different or alternative about Obama - especially as such applied to foreign policy.
    Same old establishment stooge. And planned well.
    But the deigned popular model contradicted - and repeated over and again.


    They won't allow anything else but their own.
    And numbingly accepted by the population.

    Even the most seemingly cynical and intelligent folks take the hypnotic bait.
    Why?

    Slumber still seems to be the chosen paradigm.

    Polls might not even get a chance to play out ...

    ---

    Wall Street Democratic donors warn the party: We’ll sit out, or back Trump, if you nominate Elizabeth Warren


    Key Points

    • In recent interviews of several big-money Democratic donors and fundraisers in the business community, CNBC has found that this opinion is becoming widely shared as Warren surges against Joe Biden.
    • Warren is a critic of big banks and corporations, and has called for a wealth tax.


    https://www.cnbc.com/2019/09/26/wall...nominated.html

    ---

    IMHO

    The Democrats need to find/manufacture a social progressive, a advocate of social reform, a woman would be good but not a clincher ... not a proposer or radical reform such as Warren is advocating.

    The Democrats need to get out and fucking vote is all.

    Wall Street has radically reformed the US in recent years, so why not radically reform it back?

    That's what Dodd-Frank and all those other laws were for, but they just put paid puppets in charge and rolled it all back.

    They, along with pharma/healthcare, pretty much run the country right now so if this statement is true they will find some way to sideline Warren or turn her after the election (like Obama).

    Biden is the guy the big money wants to win, if not Trump again.

    newbie dave, once again you've made it abundantly clear that your knowledge of US politics and policy is woefully limited.

    the voters this agenda appeals to are the people who voted for obama in 2012 and trump in 2016 in places like WI, MI, OH, PA and MN. the people who feel that the 1% aren't paying their fair share in taxes. the people who are fed up with the big banks and corporations getting a free ride. the people who believe that big donors have corrupted politics.

    it's clear that the trump campaign would rather face warren than biden in a GE, but if warren gets the nomination it will present its own unique challenges to trump's messaging, because it's very similar his....but the difference is that she actually understands the policy aspects of her agenda and she genuinely believes it.

    The downside is that all the trumpanzees have either forgotten 2008 or blame it on "the swamp" and stupidly believe baldy orange cunto has "drained it" - when he has done the diametrically opposite.

    Trump campaign, RNC raise record $125 million in 3rd quarter

    AP ZEKE MILLER Oct 1st 2019 6:23PM

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump's reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee raised $125 million in the third quarter of the year, a presidential fundraising record.

    The pro-Trump effort said Tuesday that it has raised more than $308 million in 2019 and has more than $156 million in the bank. Republicans aim to use the fundraising haul to fight off Democrats' impeachment effort.

    Former President Barack Obama and the DNC raised just over $70 million in the third quarter of 2011.

    "President Trump has built a juggernaut of a campaign, raising record amounts of money at a record pace," said Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale.

    RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel credited Democratic attacks on Trump for motivating supporters to donate in record numbers.

    "We are investing millions on the airwaves and on the ground to hold House Democrats accountable, highlight their obstruction, and take back the House and reelect President Trump in 2020," she said.

    The fundraising announcement comes as the pro-Trump efforts launched their first major advertising campaign of the cycle. Trump's team aims to devote $1 billion to his reelection.

    Last week, as House Democrats launched their impeachment effort, the Trump campaign announced it would spend $8 million to air an ad attacking Democrats for trying to "steal" the 2020 campaign. The RNC said it would spend $2 million attacking Democrats for their support of impeachment.

    Big businesses love him because he rolls back things like EPA protections.

    But of course the interests of big businesses are seldom aligned with the people.

    I do not think that the ones who provide the money do it because of their "liking". Did all the "donors" of the huge Obama's money like him? Not to be obliged?

    Bolstered By Impeachment Inquiry, Trump Campaign And RNC Raise $125 Million
    October 1, 20196:51 PM ET TAMARA KEITH AMITA KELLY

    The Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee took in a huge haul in the third quarter, which ended Monday — a combined $125 million.

    This means that this year alone, they've raised more than $300 million — double the total that then-President Obama and the Democratic Party had raised at this point in 2011 on Obama's way to a successful reelection bid.

    But there's a big difference between now and 2011 — President Trump is facing an impeachment inquiry. The campaign claims that this move by House Democrats helped supercharge Trump's fundraising.

    How Trump Plans To Fight Impeachment Push
    Three days after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the House was launching an impeachment inquiry into Trump, Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale crowed about new donors pouring into the campaign.

    Brad Parscale
    Wow! 50,000 new donors in two days... and growing. @realDonaldTrump supporters are showing up big league.

    2:10 AM - Sep 28, 2019
    An RNC official says it already has staff on the ground in 19 states and will be using some of that cash to defend the president and go after vulnerable House Democrats on impeachment. Late last week the RNC announced it would spend $2 million on a cable ad buy fighting the impeachment inquiry and the campaign said it was spending $8 million to hit former Vice President Joe Biden while criticizing Democrats focus on the Ukraine scandal.

    RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said the RNC is investing millions to "hold House Democrats accountable, highlight their obstruction and take back the House and reelect President Trump in 2020."

    Parscale also credited Trump's campaign operation and its partnership with the RNC. The Trump campaign and RNC created a joint fundraising committee called Trump Victory, which is raising money through high-dollar fundraisers like Trump attended last week in New York and through small dollar donations and merchandise sales (like hats and Trump-branded plastic straws).


    "President Trump has built a juggernaut of a campaign, raising record amounts of money at a record pace," Parscale said. "With our great partnership with the RNC and Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, we will reelect the president and win back the House of Representatives."

    Brad Parscale
    Huge fundraising haul this quarter. The @gop and @realDonaldTrumpcampaign brought in 125 million!!!@GOPChairwoman has been killing it. She’s a great partner as we go on to win 4 more years.
    3:48 AM - Oct 2, 2019

    Former Obama senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer tweeted that today's numbers should be a "giant wake up call."

    This should be a giant wake up call. Trump is going to have more resources to deploy earlier and more aggressively than any candidate in history. https://twitter.com/EricLevitz/status/1179137188094722049 …

    Over the equivalent period in 2011, Obama raised $70 million for his re-election campaign. So this is, uh, a lot of money. https://twitter.com/MegKinnardAP/sta...34205760016391


    4:09 AM - Oct 2, 2019Some Democratic candidates also announced their third-quarter fundraising numbers Tuesday. Bernie Sanders' campaign reported $25.3 million, and the candidate tweeted that the "billionaire class should be very, very nervous."

    JUST IN: Sen. Bernie Sanders' campaign announces raising $25.3 million in Q3 -- the largest quarter for any Democratic candidate this year. https://abcn.ws/2oNFAQP

    South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg reported $19.1 million, California Sen. Kamala Harris raised $11.6 million and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker brought in $6 million.

    Full details won't be available until the campaigns file their quarterly reports with the Federal Election Commission. They are due mid-month.

    Didn't the "working people" think similarly with Obama? That's why they voted for him... (But beside them, some others - more powerful - voted for him too)
