WE ALL KNOW THAT THE PRESIDENT WON THE ELECTION THROUGH MILLIONS OF SMALL DONORS AS WELL AS THROUGH MAJOR DONORS. WHILE I CAN ONLY SPEAK FOR MYSELF, WHO WILL NOT BE DONATING MY SMALL AMOUNT AGAIN TO HIS RE-ELECTION CAMPAIGH, IT SEEMS FROM THIS REPORT THAT MAJOR DONORS ARE ALSO UPSET WITH OBAMA'S "INCREDIBLE WEAKNESS."Obama's tax-cut deal upsets many major donors. Some say they will withhold funds for the next election. Even if they come around before the campaign kicks into gear, the initial backlash could hurt early Democratic efforts to counter GOP-allied groups
The president's advisors are confident that liberals dismayed by his agreement to extend tax breaks for the wealthy will forgive him by the time the 2012 election kicks into gear.
But the current backlash on the left may intensify the immediate challenge Democrats face in building a new campaign finance apparatus to challenge Republican-allied outside groups that flexed their muscles in this year's midterm election.
Democratic operatives are already laying plans to set up new independent expenditure committees that can raise unlimited funds, and hope to enroll early contributors to establish a beachhead for the coming campaign. But some stalwart party donors are vowing to withhold funds because of their anger over the tax-cut deal.
"I do not plan to support Obama and his reelection effort," said Utah-based hedge fund manager Art Lipson, who gave hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Democratic Party and its allies in recent elections. He views the tax-cut compromise as a giveaway to Republicans that will increase the deficit.

And justifiably so!! It seems, as of yesterday, (monday) more and more (spineless) democrats in the house, are "gonna follow suit," with the senate, and help O'bama perform his act of "financial terrorism," on the American people once again.
And once again, these spinleess cowards from the left, who less than a week ago, and destined to vote against O'bama's "demonic deal," are simply gonna "cave in" now.
And if O'bama's "fuck you to the American people" attitude isn't bad enough, Robert Gibbs was on MSNBC Monday night, selling this "line of bullshit" to the American people as well. You know, the "cocky bastard," who called us "the professional left." I'd say from that day forward, my "controlled rage" toward Gibbs, damn near equals the same, as my rage against the "filthy right." This "piece of shit," ALSO, if you remember, got the ball rolling towards Helen Thomas's early retirement, when Helen challenged Gibbs remarks, about the "professional left."
I firmly believe, that we have the most vicious, oppressive government on the planet. It was a relief, to start watching parliament, instead of our congress, on C-Span lately. Though not much better, at least SOME of their masses, have someone representing them.
With the exception of St. Bernie Sanders, and Dennis Kucinich, the rest of the "so-called" stewards to the American people, can easily be counted on one hand.
What we need, as a people, is to pass an amendement to the constitution. In this amendment, there would be a " neutral middleman." This middleman, would collect local, state and federal taxes from the American people. These middlemen/women, would oversee all taxes on a local state and federal level as well. If our criminals in congress, cannot reduce our deficit, get our sons and daughters home from the Middle East, invest in green energy manufacturing here in the states etc. etc. etc.
THEY DON'T GET PAID!!
YEP!!...AN ESCROW ACCOUNT!!
...let's see how fast THIS piece of legislation, "zips" through congress huh!!
Now THIS, is what you would call, a system of checks and balances!!
