Interesting that Obama hasn't released his fundraising totals for the month of August. Must be a disaster.

Because they suck!
He looked like he had just been given a ton of bad news right before his speech last night
Are they required to disclose this info? Now, I am curious.
The campaign hasnt had time to fudge the numbers yet
I think they have ten days to report to the FEC after the end of each month. Romney probably released his ASAP because they were good numbers. Obama will probably wait for the last day...
“He looked like he had just been given a ton of bad news right before his speech last night”
The jobs report?
The money is probably more telling than the polls.
“”The campaign hasnt had time to fudge the numbers yet””
I’ll buy your explanation but maybe not for the same reason you may think that!!!
I don’t for a minute believe they are hard up for campaign donations. The same people who put him where he is today with their money are still around and still want to see the destruction of the country as much as he does. If anything - they need to HIDE their numbers!
Just a little contrarian opinion here. I would not be surprised if the whole “Romney is out-raising and out-spending us is false.” Why? Because it fits their narrative. Romney is only in it for the rich and Obama is the man of the people, the poor folks who just can’t find the money to donate because Romney stole it all.
Just a thought.
“Was he dumped by Reggie Love, too?”
Or perhaps Reggie said, “look, this is how it’s going to be from now on, or I go public -— now you get on your knees.”
I think he is waiting for the friday bad news dump
Actually most of the Wall $t money that went to Baraq in 08 is going to Romney this year.
Obama does not disclose
I do think they sense that Romney is not another McLame.
Their strategy has always been to milk the low dollar donors with multiple appeals through September and to romance the big dollar donors after the convention. The low dollar donors won’t be able to do enough from now until November to make a difference other than “campaign debt retirement” and the big money (outside of Hollywood and the media) has gone to Romney. The truth is that reasonable people won’t give to candidates that hate them, which is why those CEO’s made a big deal out of deciding to “sit out” because they don’t want to piss off the regime by supporting the Republican, in case Obama wins.
Truth is, most of the big money is funneled to the unregulated superpacs who will do the lions-share of the ads from here on out.
McCain's problem was that he was more interested in being liked than actually winning. He let the media and the Obama campaign dictate the terms of the debate, and as he, a miltary man, should have know when you let the enemy choose the the time and place of the battle, you've probably already lost. Romney is much more ruthless, he will use every dirty trick in the book to win, even if it means he will be hated in the process. (Just ask Santorum, Gingrich, Bachmann, Cain. etc)
I read that the Obamas have purchased, or are about to purchase, a multi-million estate in Hawaii. Perhaps there are some machinations being performed to funnel those donations into the real estate transaction.
The Wall Street types aren't stupid, but they are practical, I have a feeling they could see the writing on the wall in 2008 so they supported Obama in hopes that it would mitigate his anti-capitalist views and/or he would feel obligated to go easy on them. Instead he essentially took their money then spit in their face. They learned their lesson, so not only are they not giving to him, they are pouring boatloads into his defeat. In other words, Obama killed the goose that laid the golden egg...
Things have not been going Obama’s way lately ..... he’s appearing decidedly human rather than Messianic and the images are not good. Bad job numbers, fund raising is off, and ‘things’ are starting to “stick” (you didn’t build that, empty chair, etc.) & people are starting to joke, if not outright laugh. The big stadium moment wasn’t going to happen ..... Michelle is NOT happy (family is looking for a house in Hawaii - not going back to Chicago), some slight slippage in adoring media coverage.
Most of all, I think he/handlers/campaign are beginning to realize that the struggle to “hold it together” (economy, etc.) until they can limp across the finish line is a battle they are not winning. There is the realization that Romney is not McCain. Ryan is devastating as a VP candidate.
Of course, the Dems are spinning everything the other way, but the weight of the humongous, outrageous lies and the extreme radicalism of the libs as evidenced by the unreal Star Wars bar scene atmosphere of the convention are catching up. The War on Women meme is failing as Obama slips with women .... and I could go on and on. As someone said, the “new car smell” Obama had has worn off .... he now smells like a vehicle with cigarette smoke-impregnanted upholstery sporting numerous worn spots and rips. Smoke is beginning to issue from the tailpipe and the engine is running rough .... getting the jalopy started is getting harder every day. A trip to the junk yard is on the horizon.
Based upon the very intense debate prep he did during the convention, I would agree. He is not running to lose thank goodness. Now we just have to hope Ryan’s ideas rub off onto him enough.
He just wrote his own campaign a check for $5,000, so Jon Stewart was speculating as to whether or not he asked for a photo of himself with himself.

Excellent chart, Scooter. Thanks. Pretty much falls out the way I expected.
