NEW YORK (AP) -- President Barack Obama told campaign donors Monday that "if the election were held today, I think it'd be close, but I think we'd win." He said his opponents were "spending like nobody's business" and that Democrats need substantial sums to counterpunch.

Could be they’re counting on dead humans, dead dogs and cartoon characters to put him over the top.
The media can only blow smoke so long. About six to four weeks before the election, we can expect to see the media come closer to real numbers. This guy is going to take a bath, and if the media lies too close to the election, it will be the end of them.
Obama may rid us of more than himself before this is over.
Denial is not a river in Egypt Mr. Obama. “One and done.”
From the man who gave himself an A+ grade.
Most malignant narcissists have a pretty high opinion of themselves.
This guy said the same thing in July 1980
As did this guy in July 1988
Psstt...The opponents are spending money THEY HAVE. Not running a campaign like you have been running this country- deep into debt, you moron.
Don’t forget the illegal alien vote.
Said the man who's still campaigning on the taxpayer nickel.
What a putz.
Hey, I take exception... to that 'cartoon characters' remark!
So do I, but... bend over so I can make sure--
Just because we are for same safe sex... does not put us in the Obama camp!
Whoa, Olog! Just because the guy who does my voice is a raging Lib... does not mean I lift my voting leg at his command--
Right on, Brian. And these bitches here... agree with you.
Power up the Death Ray. Olog.... has us voting for Obama!
Come over here, Olog and I'll show you... how I'm not voting for Obama--
Olog? Why... why shame us?
Okay, yuees convinced me, Chester... Let's go have a word with Olog.
Big, change the channel to Fox News Channel... and tell Bendy we are backing Mitt!
Sorry, Bendy, did mean to sprinkle Olog... into the mix.
Sweet Jethro Pugh-- Me... vote for Obama?
Set course for Earth, July 30, 2012! We need... to change history where Olog says we cartoon characters will support Obama.
Really, Olog, you think I want... to share the honey?
Olog, and to think I was going to take off my top for you. Well, not now... not ever!
Take that 'cartoon character' remark back, Olog, or... me and my 'Anybody But Obama' flash mob will make you!
Okay, from now on, Olog... watch what you say about us cartoon characters!
"Fool me once". Barack Obama broke his own promise in 2008 to cap his election fundraising/spending. The GOP isn't making the same mistake twice.
Now it is "unfair" to outspend the opposition.
Meanwhile he continues to sell illegal lottery tickets to win a dream date with Barry.
That’s what those 5000 lawyers are of after all. May the election be a blowout for Republicans and may the Occupier of the White House be removed.

“Obama thinks election would be close but he’d win”
I’m beginning to believe he’s right.
Just saw a segment on Fox News this afternoon with Karl Rove and a democrat apparatchik using a color-coded map displaying electoral college votes, based on the most current polls.
If the map and polls are to be believed (and I believe they are, at least as reported by Fox), it’s looking like a tough climb for Romney. Between the “solid for Obama” states, and the “leaning towards Obama” states, there are currently 280 electoral votes for Obama (270 needed to win).
Of course, I realize that this can and hopefully will change. But one other thing I’ve noticed, and it has been reported here on FR as well, is that although the polls fluctuate back and forth a little, this time around they seem to “hold steady” at certain relative numbers and don’t indicate any sweeping changes.
To me, this indicates the “entrenched” attitudes of “the reds” vs. “the blues” (and by “reds” and “blues” I’m referring not only to states, but to the individuals that live in them). Others have categorized this division as “makers” versus “takers”, but it goes beyond that overly simplified categorization. On one side are “the traditional Americans”, the folks who represent and hold dear the values that Chick-fil-A’s Dan Cathy was talking about — and was attacked for. On the other side are those who reject such values, and who would cast them aside to force upon the nation something else. The two sides are so diametrically opposed in their core beliefs that accommodation or compromise has become impossible — resulting in a state of “Civil Cold War” that seems to extend right up into the Congress (witness a Senate that cannot pass a budget of any type).
As these two sides dig in and become more polarized, there are left fewer “middle-of-the-roaders” (so-called “independents” who really are folks who can’t make up their minds, or simply don’t care). This shrinking cohort of “the uncommitteds” results in polls that don’t “shift” much, because there really isn’t much “room for change” any more.
What that leaves us with are elections that will be decided by fewer and fewer, and the fight to win their fickle votes will result in political campaigns that will, of necessity, be louder and dirtier (especially the attacks from the left).
One closing thought. Regardless of the other states that seem to be leaning one way or the other, watch Ohio. Obama might win without Ohio, but Romney can’t. And right now, Obama leads Romney by 5 points there, and Sherrod Brown (the democrat) is leading in the Senate contest. This doesn’t portend well for our side.
Romney might well beat Obama in “a squeaker” yet.
But he has his work cut out for him.
If Obama wins, we got a lot of work to do here on FR.
Like figure out where the heck to go.
I’m thinking the best younger doctors will bail out and set up boutique medical clinics in the Caribbean for wealthy Americans who are looking for quality and prompt care.
Maybe one of them will hire me as a janitor.
