Skip to comments.Obama campaign: Romney fundraising edge means ‘we’re in trouble’
Posted on 08/06/2012 8:13:14 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
President Barack Obama's re-election campaign warned supporters in an email plea for cash on Monday that Mitt Romney's vast fundraising edge means "we're in trouble" with scarcely three months to go before Election Day.
"We got beat three months in a row," the campaign said in the unsigned message. "If we don't step it up, we're in trouble."
The appeal came hours after the two sides released their July fundraising totals, revealing that Romney and the Republican Party scooped up $101 million against the $75 million hauled in by Obama and the Democrats.

Was this Harry Reid’s friend that said this?
My understand is that the Dems are also burning through money at about three times the rate the Republicans are as well.
Well, you can always cheat!!
Why don’t they just print the money they need?
The Goldman Sack?
The Islamic Caliphate?
They are in trouble because they are a bunch of commie F'n traitors...
The amateur president is in trouble not because Romney is out-raising him, he is in trouble because of economy which is in a funk and people are blaming him for it.
Hope and change has been replaced by fear and disillusionment.
Obama has spent a fortune in the battleground states and leads early in some important polls. Romney has yet to counter in these critical states. Certainly hope that Romney’s strategy is sound. No doubt there will be sixty days of unrelenting Romney advertising in these states beginning after Labor day. However despite all the woe is me talk from the Obama camp, there is no doubt in my mind that somehow they will ultimately have as much money as they need. Probably over 500 million dollars will be spent in just six battleground states. The stakes for the country are enormous.
“... there is no doubt in my mind that somehow they will ultimately have as much money as they need.”
Agreed. They will either print it, steal it or take over the 401k’s and call it Gubmint Retirement (ya know; ‘cause us “rubes” are too stupid-dey gotta do it fer us):
The 401k Confiscation: The Ghilarducci Plan Part 1
He doesn’t need as much money as Romney, he gets free advertising daily on CNN, MSNBC, NPR, CBS, ABC, PBS, and every major newspaper in America.
It is a credit to the American people that this simpleton is going to lose big.
The constant barrage of these “oh-noes, the sky is falling, we’re sooo screwed” emails has to be both disheartening and annoying to the Obama Zombies. They all now know this isn’t a 2008 rerun.
I guess all that "walking around" money just "walked off."
If only America knew...
The best Obama exposure site on the net:
The Obama File
The United States Library of Congress has selected
TheObamaFile.com for inclusion in its historic collection
of Internet materials
Just a few pages of The Obama File:
Why do so many suspect Obama has access to all the money he possibly needs—from foreign sources. Obama is spending it like he has plenty even when the millions on the Bain attack gained no real traction, but to throw off the referendum on his own communist regime change.
The money imho will never be a problem, but the media will make us think it will. Ulsterman reports the QE3 is the Bernake plan for our October Surprise, perhaps in September, and Ben is said to have the votes for it. This would bring with it, reportedly, some relief to Wall Street who might then flirt back with Obama and throw some cash and support his way that has been frozen this election cycle.
Dumbed down voters, per public education and feel good religion, won’t see further than they can blow their nose. Then of course their are the 50 % on the socialist dole already, compliments of both Dems and the GOPE. Wallah. We’ve got a close one if those swing states don’t break our way soon.
Obama will have his October Surprise ,a massive pile of lies about Romney
Obama, “the most secretive president ever”, is in trouble because of this.
Calling all dead voters!
Standard fund raising scare tactics. Everyone does it. It does not mean anything.
I don’t think America has yet crossed the Rubicon into majority becoming dumber than a 2 year old ******.
I personally know dozens of people who voted for Obama in 2008 are now severely disappointed. Unless Romney makes a major gaffe, or picks a true RINO for VP, Obama is going down big.
My hunch is Romney will release his taxes a week before election day so that he will be spared 24-7 nit picking by Obozo campaign (which includes MSM). They will simply run out of time.
“Where is S0r0$ when you need him? The Goldman Sack? The Islamic Caliphate?”
Obama’s trouble is not that he’s not raising enough money. It’s that the American people are sick to the gut of his rot!
A national can of Raid is about to be unleashed on this cad of a pest!
So Obie’s trickle up isn’t trickling up ?
Seems like Obama needs a bailout.
Is Romney working to raise money, or is it falling in his lap? I think it may be the latter. We have seen no fundraising ads or materials of any kind for Romney at our house. I think what may really be bothering the Obama camp is that they are begging for money and losing the money chase, while Romney is just campaigning.
I've gotten Romney fundraising materials in the mail, but not an overwhelming amount for this time in a Presidential election year.
IMHO - This is classic misdirection and a halfa**ed attempt to position himself as the underdog.
The real test will be if O’Bozo elects to reject public funding for the fall presidential campaign as he did in 2008.
Just more disinformation. If his campaign was sitting on a a billion, and who knows perhaps they are, they would still be gnashing their teeth.
It’s a fundraising tactic.
My suspicion is that it’s going to be a close election. A lot of money will be spent by the two candidates trying to distinguish themselves, when their underlying philosophical differences aren’t that significant.
The gop-e should’ve run a conservative.
I agree. The GOOP has shoved the most liberal POTUS candidate down our throat since Gerald Ford. We lose no matter what. The best hope for our country is to elect conservatives to the senate and house. 4 years of gridlock may save this country
In March the MSM was bragging that Obama would be the first to raise $1 billion in a Presidential campaign.
Oh My! That “TWISTED VISION” Graphic is amazing! Yours?
Wrong. Running the USA into the ground and rubbing voters’ noses in it means you are in trouble.
That site is amazing. I’ll be reading that all day.
Yes, The Obama File is amazing. Best I’ve seen.
Fans of the Ulsterman Report know that it is the Wall Street
Insider to thank for this.
The markers are being called in.
In 2008 the cults of the left were disciplined and united, this time around the arrogance and bullying tendencies have surfaced, and president dipstick is seen as chasing their lead.
Normally, the republican candidates pick up a much higher percentage of their campaign donations in smaller amounts from more people than the dems. Wonder how that’s holding up this cycle? I don’t know anyone who would donate to romney. I figure since the establishment wanted him so badly, they can fund him as well.
