Obama Kills 50-State Strategy?

I am hearing that the post-Dean DNC under Obama has killed off the 50-state strategy and that 200 organizers have been fired. The word is they are going to go back to the old 50%-plus-one strategy that sacrificed the idea of making gains in areas that have voted Republican.
See Daily Kos: RIP 50-state strategy.
If this is true it is time to stop giving money or otherwise helping the DNC, and start thinking about ways to build progressive infrastructure.
