Where to start?
Caterers unwilling to get involved with such silly requirements?
Contracts still not negotiated?
$6 million over budget on building out the Pepsi Center?
Posh office space at $100K a month?
Turning off corporate donors with misinformation about tax exempt status?
Attempt to "go green" going down the drain?
$11 million behind in "anticipated" fund-raising?
It is a huge mess that Obama has inherited and he's got his people in Denver now to sort this mess out. I'm delighted for them.
And because this is the Democratic Party, expect ol' Howard to remain in charge, because incompetency is rewarded in the DNC.
