Obama campaign manager Jim Messina is, once again, sounding the alarm bells about conservative groups spending a billion dollars to defeat President Obama in an email to supporters.

Citing Wednesday’s POLITICO report by Mike Allen and Jim VandeHei, Messina writes, “these people are trying to buy our democracy and the White House to serve their narrow, ideological — and often secretive — agenda, and use millions in anonymous donations to do it.”

Allen and VandeHei reported that the Koch brothers, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Karl Rove were planning a huge outside effort, including a county-by-county operation being funded by the Kochs.

“They’re not interested in building anything. They don’t have millions of Americans ready to pitch in alongside them. They don’t have real people actually organizing, talking to voters on the phone or on doorsteps. They just want to tear us — and particularly President Obama — down,” Messina wrote.
