Skip to comments.Obama Trails Romney Again in Battle for Campaign Cash
Posted on 07/10/2012 4:59:22 AM PDT by MuttTheHoople
In the battle for political cash, President Obama is finding himself in an unaccustomed place during the final months of the 2012 campaign: he is losing.
Mitt Romney and the Republican National Committee easily outraised the formidable Obama money machine for the second month in a row. A nonstop schedule of high-dollar events around the country brought in $106 million during June to Mr. Obamas $71 million, giving him and his party four times the cash on hand that it had just three months ago.

“Dems have way more money but they are hiding it to peddle the rich guy is buying the election theme.”
True, but now they have to spend more of it in Michigan, Wisconsin, New Jersey, and North Carolina.
They thought these would be easy states where they could skimp. In addition, they have to defend 25 seats in the senate. The House is a throwaway. Obama will do an endaround on them anyway, so why bother?
That is why I do not believe a word that some of the posters are saying.
See, I was right, getting info from the “Washington COMPOST”.
Romney supporters sign their checks on the front;
Obama supporters sign 'em on the back.
You can go to OpenSecrets and get the same info. Denial just ain’t a river in Egypt.
The most reliable comment in this thread is that you have to read the NYT the way Russians used to read Pravda. Who has how much money stuck where is very difficult to pin down due to all the factors people have mentioned.
But how this “news story” helps the libs’ agenda is easy to figure out: scare Obama supporters into sending more $$, make Romney supporters feel complacent about their candidate’s chances (a feces-spewing monkey could beat BO only if the monkey was the more leftist candidate, and maybe gay — so he would be the one the media would be in the tank for).
You don’t have to love Romney; you just have to dislike Obummer and his policies more than you dislike Mitt. The Republican House can do nothing by itself — with a Democratic president and without a filibuster-proof Republican majority in the Senate, none of Obama’s “achievelments” will ever be undone.
Vote for Mitt in November and send him some money.
we could nominate a feces-throwing howler monkey for President and he could beat Obama this term.
I agree with 98% of your posted comment. But, with regard to the above statement: I respect Democrat operative Pat Caddell. He is an old-style, Truman Democrat who is also a man of intelligence and integrity. And I keep hearing, in my head, what he said on Hannity a week or so ago. He said: “Republicans must not get over confident; you don’t know what you’re dealing with here.” (Referring to the Obama Thug-brigade.) And, he is right. The Dems will not go down easily.
There may be something to that, especially with the fact the Obama campaign is paying huge amount$ for staff, etc. They're burning money like there's no tomorrow.
We may be seeing a "rope-a-dope" strategy unfolding here, because on balance, Romney hasn't been badly damaged by the onslaught by the Obama campaign. While Romney closes the gap in the cash-on-hand department (if he hasn't already drawn even), it appears he's marshalling resources until after the convention, at which point he'll bombard the airwaves when voters begin more intensely focusing on the election. It'll be a reverse of what Obama did to a resource-poor McCain in the waning weeks in '08.
These are facts.
These left wing front groups are a product of McCain election reforms and the Soros and fellow radicals being ticked off that Bush won in 2000 and 2004 !
The radical left got organized and set up these 501C3 non profits front groups .
That phoney Texas Tribune is a prime example of a radical left Wing media propaganda group set up by a rich left Wing and Soros .
It’s real interesting that you don’t know these facts but post here
Trashing posters warning people about the media spin .
In other words, Romney may be laying low for a reason, wait until end of summer, after the convention to begin to POUNCE.
If true that nobody cares, or that a majority of people are happy with this neo-depression,
Really the people who care are who it effects. There are 8 million people out of work and 10 million under employed. There are tons more that are working and fully employed. The people in the country like to complain but really gas prices are the main factor for most people and they see it falling and think everything is great....What can I say about a group of people who voted for Obama in the first place.
Remember that Romney will have the “super pacs” ready to go to take on any of the “radical left”, what they will come out with.
Opinion, nothing more.
Elections are all about momentum.
Right now Romney has it and Obama is sputtering.
How much does all the free MSM kneepadding of Obama amount to?
Obama does not even need close to the amount mittens needs since the entire MSM is a24/7 barackathon.
Let’s hope the momentum continues thru November 6. The general public won’t really start focussing on the race until after the conventions and Labor Day.
Can you enlighten us then to the evidence proving that Obama raising less money than Romney was done as part of an elaborate conspiracy to...who knows what? Look weak?
we need to uses our “527’s” to attack obama relentlessly.
