Obama Calls Money Shortage 'Critical' Daniel Halper August 26, 2012 12:14 PM
In a fundraising email to perspective donors, President Obama says, "This is critical." Obama explains that he is being outspent in states likes Iowa by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
Here's the entire email:
When I'm out there talking to voters, we talk about what we've done, what we plan to do over the next four years, and why the other guys have dangerous plans to go back to the policies that failed America for almost a decade.
But there is another question that keeps coming up, and you need to know about it: "Why do I see so many more ads for the other guys?"
You don't need me to tell you that the Romney campaign is outraising us -- that billionaire ideologues and corporate interests are piling on tens of millions more in negative ads trashing us, and that all of it means that undecided voters in battleground states like Iowa could be seeing false, misleading, negative attacks at a rate almost twice as often as they hear from us.
Last week, when I was in Iowa, voters told me they were feeling it. The numbers back it up: Our side is getting outspent 2-to-1 on the air there.
But the folks asking me about this don't want an explanation -- they want to know what I'm going to do about it.
And the fact is that solving this problem is up to you.
Close the gap on the air by making a donation of $5 or more now.
You're getting this email because you know what the stakes are in this election. You know the facts about what we've done to prevent a deeper crisis and to start building an economy that works for the middle class.
But for someone who's not as engaged, these ads may be an important and possibly even primary source of information about the choice in this election.
So it's a bad situation if 90 percent of them are false, negative attacks on us.
We're losing this air war right now.
I don't have as much time to campaign this time as I did in 2008, so this whole thing is riding on you making it happen.
Donate now to close the gap on the air:
Hasn’t he been able to sign some exectutive order by now that would allow him to print his own? A few million Obama $3 bills could buy a lot of hit ads.
LOL.. Wasn’t Romney hoarding his cash til after the convention? Romney’s ad buys have been spotty at best.
There's an app for that: 'Buying a loaf of bread in Harare'
Obama: “my money shortage is critical. America & it’s taxpayer’s money shortage - not so much.”
“I don’t have as much time to campaign this time as I did in 2008”
That made me laugh.
Of course, I was wrong. It's all about his campaign, his fundraising , his ego. All Bama, all the time.
I'm so looking forward to seeing his bony a$$ walk out of the WH for the last time, and Joe Bite-me going happily off into the nearest home for victims of dementia.
“the Romney campaign is outraising us”
But for so long we were told the Obama had this unbeatable billion-dollar war chest.
Wow. Just wow.
Actually Romney was hording his cash and waiting for the mass of party cash that is unlocked once he is officially the nominee. O is in a LOT of trouble. His current standing in the polls is very likely the highest point he is going to reach.
Romney is not only beating him in fund raising he also has about 60 million more cash on hand.
He actually could.
The US government could bypass the Fed and issue Unites States Notes again.
I remember them co-circulating with Federal Reserve Notes, they looked pretty much the same except for the title across the top and that the Treasury seal and serial numbers were red instead of green.
It took an act of Congress in the early 60's, but no reason an Executive Order couldn't accomplish the same end today.
I pray and know your right.
Romney cannot spend money raised for his Presidential campaign until after he is officially the nominee. He hasn’t been hoarding. Obama has been outspending and underraising Romney. He runs his campaign the way he runs the government. The only thing he knows how to do is spend.
This, of course, doesn't mean he wouldn't be declared the victor after Soros owned Sctyl finishes counting the paper trail free vote in Spain.
That’s just how W. C. Fields would have desribed a gin shortage.
I hate this thug more by the minute.
Ditto. Came to this thread ready to rant about currency units vs national economic value.
But no, it’s just about the Obama whining that people aren’t redistributing enough money to him.
Thank you, Wall Street Insider.
Ahhh, “winter” is here and the Kenyan grasshopper has fiddled away his cash and his support.
It’s Obama cry-baby time at th white mosque, and the begging has begun.
All of the stimuli and bribe money is not coming back to him the way he planned.
I will enjoy seeing him begging, crawling, and crying, the way he’s enjoyed seeing the rest of us.
No mercy, and no sympathy for bammy...he made his bed, now he can wallow in it.
The only fundraising strategy the Obama campaign hasn’t tried so far is begging on street corners, so I guess we’ll be seeing that next.
If Obama could at least fill average-sized auditoriums with people above high-school age, he could benefit by passing around collection boxes to aid his campaign, but he’s proven that he can’t do that.
What a tacky, patronizing tone this and other letters use.
Would Reagan have signed off as ‘Ronald?’
Would Ford, Carter or Bush 41 or even Clinton have done it?
I don’t have as much time to campaign this time as I did in 2008,
Hes been campaigning since 2006 !
/I wonder if this guy understands that his and his party's own policies are what bled their base dry of funds.
Somewhere in yesterday’s threads is an article about how Obama is purposely seeking out small groups rather than large crowds to speak to.
That article also mentioned that the Obama Camp has said that they are also avoiding large donations, and are focusing on getting smaller donations for ‘dedicated’ supporters.
BING, BING, BING we have a winner! BHO by a whisker!
Officially it will be by a stunning mandate of the people.
Since Soros stopped being his sugar daddy and I’m sure the Jewish donations are way down...crowds are small...DSW as the chair of the DNC is an complete loon...times are going to be hard..
Something Obams is completely foreign too..real work
Obama in a landslide / S
Who knew Romney was richer than Hussein’s handler, Soros?
Looks like Soros may be done with Hussein.
He’s just teasing. Didn’t he say that smaller crowds and less money were his winning strategy?
Why do so few people understand the difference between perspective and prospective?? My home owner's association even had a huge sign informing "perspective" home buyers to read the association rules...
Your mighty lose with your denuciations, A II.
Cuz so many people could care less.
