Obama "I Will Be outspent" (email from Il Duce)

Posted on 06/26/2012 10:19:26 AM PDT by God luvs America

I will be the first president in modern history to be outspent in his re-election campaign, if things continue as they have so far.

I'm not just talking about the super PACs and anonymous outside groups -- I'm talking about the Romney campaign itself. Those outside groups just add even more to the underlying problem.

The Romney campaign raises more than we do, and the math isn't hard to understand: Through the primaries, we raised almost three-quarters of our money from donors giving less than $1,000, while Mitt Romney's campaign raised more than three-quarters of its money from individuals giving $1,000 or more.

And, again, that's not including the massive outside spending by super PACs and front groups funneling up to an additional billion dollars into ads trashing me, you, and everything we believe in.

We can be outspent and still win -- but we can't be outspent 10 to 1 and still win.

More than 2.2 million Americans have already chipped in for us, and I'm so grateful for it. As we face this week's fundraising deadline, can you make a donation of $3 or more today?

Every donation you make today automatically enters you to join Michelle and me for one of the last grassroots dinners of this campaign -- today is your last chance to get your name in.

These dinners represent how we do things differently. My opponent spent this past weekend at a secretive retreat for the biggest donors to both his campaign and the super PACs that support him.

I've got other responsibilities I'm attending to.

Donate today to stand for our kind of politics:

Thank you,

Barack

This is partly true because you are not going to get away with lying about taking matching funds again.

“These dinners represent how we do things differently. My opponent spent this past weekend at a secretive retreat for the biggest donors to both his campaign and the super PACs that support him.”

Really?

Didn’t he tie up traffic in NYC last week for a couple of high end fundraisers? And before that in H-Wood the week before?

I hope the people who were stupid enough to vote for him the last time are not so stupid that they would believe that statement...

At $40,000 a plate, it looks like not many showed up. If Hollyweirdos don’t support him, he might have a rough go of it.

And the first in history to spend so MUCH time (and taxpayer money) campaigning and fundraising.

I guess those June brides aren’t donating their fair share.

I believe the proper Italian spelling in his case is Il Douche. The suffix "bag" is purely optional.

Hopefully if Ozero loses, at noon on inaugeration day, Romney’s first official act is to direct the FBI to take hin into custody as an enemy of the state and send him off to Cuba for incarceration, never to be seen and hopefully heard.

More BS. Obama has tons of porkulus cash - more than Romney will ever raise.

It would be a true shame for the Zero’s campaign to go 30-40 million in the hole then loose.

He’ll need to start writing more books that nobody will read.

If zer0 loses, the pardons will fly out of the Whitey House at a rate that surpasses even Slick Willie. Hell, 0bama may have to issue a preemptive pardon for himself if F&F gets any more out of control.

The dim bulb can’t figure out that money has evaporated since the bad ol’ Bush years, I guess. He’ll have to squeeze more out of the Muslims in foreign countries who gave so generously to his ‘08 campaign.

"i will be the first president in modern history to be outspent in his re-election campaign"...

What this really means is that Romney is going to take public funds this time, unlike McCain.

Obama eschewed public funds last election for the first time since Watergate.

He ouspent McCain 10:1 because of it. Romney's not falling for that trick.

Does "outspent" consider in kind (or well-scrubbed) contributions from corrupt unions, lawyer associations and other countries?

Looking back on the past few weeks of 0Bammma’s edicts, one has to be convinced that he has decided to go off his meds, or he is just taking a lot of amphetamines. The guy’s off his rocker, big time!

What a freakin’ whiner! Waiting for the pics of him in the fetal position sucking his thumb! November can’t come soon enough! And at my age I can’t really afford to wish my life away!

The money ‘votes’ long before the electorate. Buh-bye, Obama!
