    For an event that size, four months seems like a short time to expect to be paid. A lot of companies have a 30 day agreement but some have as much as a 90 day agreement for payments.

    Since you posted this, what exactly was the agreement of terms? Has Obama breached those terms or is this just an opinion he hasn't paid up?

    Also, they expected the bill to be over 2 million dollars. It was only 1.7 million. Don't you think it would take a few months to get the actual total before a bill would be due?


    This is just more of the silly slamming the right is doing. Instead of focusing on matters that count, they will focus on this and then cry about another lost election next time.

    This type of 'petty' "news story" is in part the reason he was elected.

    When will we stop the silliness, and focus on the real troubles?

    One would think that the DNC would take care of such matters. Perhaps they are too busy basking over their victory. If the Republicans would have left a large tab unpaid, it would be all over the web and probably ended up on Entertainment Tonight. I guarantee it would have been the biggest scandal on The View.:sleep:

    The DNC is going to pay it. They said they are looking into all the charges and the itemized bill. Also, the title of the article is a little misleading, since Obama isn't responsible for the tab, the DNC is.

    How many 1.7 million dollar bills have you paid without looking into it first?


    Again, This is just more of the same from the Right... You guys can't seem to get it through your head that beating up on the silly things is what got Obama elected. Focus on the large things that matter and maybe he won't win the next election.

    If you continue to focus on the silly things like this, then don't cry when he is elected and issues like abortion slip further away...

    You posting this and then "sleeping" around it shows a lack of "real" concern. Can't the Right stay focused on why Obama shouldn't be POTUS or do they have ADHD?

    How is this about the right? This was a news story, not a opinion post.

    Yes, it's a new story, but it's not a 'news' story. There is nothing here to be concerned about as of yet. It's only been a few months, with a bill that large I am sure there are terms put in place. Since no one can tell us what those terms are, we don't know that the DNC is late in paying.

    Since it's the DNC's responsibility to pay this, and they are reviewing the bill, it has nothing to do with Obama, unlike the title makes it seem.

    In my opinion, since Obama was in part elected because the right kept bringing up silly claims like he isn't a citizen and that he was a muslim, they lost traction in the election and never over came it and lost.

    My point is simple, if we are to see that he isn't elected again for another term, it needs to start now with solid, real reasons why he shouldn't be elected. If they continue to bring up all the silly issues they will lose again and then cry in the milk about how the abortion laws are being changed, how the court is being changed, etc.

    If one can't see that far out then Obama is sure to win again...

    I wonder why the title does not say, 'Forget something, DNC?'

    Might have been a short honeymoon.

    I hear what your saying, but I still dont get where you got that this is something from the right. From your first two post you came out attacking the right and the right had nothing to do with this story. NBC us not a right wing news outlet.

    Because don't you know, the whole goal is is to blame the President for everything.

    Jamie, maybe we should quit trying to educate them. Let 'em keep going down every rabbit hole they can create and the GOP will never become relevant again! :thumbs:

    How is this a GOP thing? Good night people would you get off the horse it is long dead!

    NBC is not right wing nor is it GOP affiliated it is very much in the DNC back pocket.

    I was referring to LE's post, not the article that she misrepresented. Her posts demonstrate her unbridled fear of anything remotely related to Obama (see some where I replied with Captain Hyperbole's picture :laugh: )

    To see the GOP go the way of the Whigs would be a wonderful thing for the U.S.

    Perhaps it isn't.. Perhaps it's just a really large bill that has yet to be paid. It's not like the DNC has said they won't pay it, they are just going over the itemized bill.

    I don't see anything in the article stating it was Obama's debt. It's the DNC that is responsible to pay it so I guess that horse was never alive since the article's title was bad to start with.... :rolleyes:

    If you can't honestly see how this petty such got Obama elected and how it won't help now, then we are in for another 4 years of him.

    Please enjoy the two terms of Obama....

    Oh, we know...you guys have been doing it the past 8 years, and Obama did it again as his excuse for adding to the deficit.

    I'm still waiting to see where all the money came from for the Obama money making machine...........................................................................waiting.............

    We know that when it came to the HUGE DEBT Obama placed on the backs of the American people the amount of time went rather quickly through congress and Obama's pen....Oh but this is taking much longer because of the small amount and the pockets of the giver.

    Did you even read the article of the other posts? This isn't Obama debt, it's the DNC's.


    Got any more smart aleck remarks that make no sense in the context of a thread?
