Skip to comments.Obama close to raising $1 billion after near-record September tally
Posted on 10/06/2012 10:35:41 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
President Obamas reelection campaign, which only two months ago fretted that it was losing the money race to Republican challenger Mitt Romney, said Saturday that it was on the cusp of raising $1 billion for the 2012 election after posting its strongest fundraising month of the year.
The Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee raised $181 million last month, easily eclipsing the $114 million that they had raised together in August. The number falls just shy of the all-time monthly record of $193 million, however, which was set by Obama in September 2008.
Campaign manager Jim Messina wrote in an e-mail to supporters that Obamas fundraising efforts in 2012 mark a historic record for grass-roots politics. The campaign says it has collected more than 10 million individual donations so far this year.
The September haul caps a turnaround in Obamas financial status since May. He fell behind his Republican opponent in monthly fundraising through July, but he edged out Romney in August, $114 million to $112 million.
Obama has raised nearly half his money through small donations with aggressive solicitation programs targeting e-mail, social media and cellphone texting services. Last months fundraising also included the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., and a notable bump in the polls for the president in subsequent weeks.

So you do not pronounce the ‘h’ in historic?
Either way is acceptable though Messina’s way is preferred.
And yet, Obozo trails in the polls and would likely need a miracle-type of turn of events to get a 2nd term.
Romney in 90 minutes on Wednesday just obliterated the last $500 million dollars the wicked devil and his minions raised and spent.
For every $1 Romney spends telling the truth, the wicked devil needs to spend $5 to try to counter it.
This is utter and complete B.S., just like the unemployment figures. Barry is nothing but a steaming pile of horse sh*t!
He could raise 2 Billion and it would make NO difference.
He's run out of road with the majority of Americans as will be witnessed on NOV 6th.
Proper grammer pronounces the ‘h’ in historic but begs the “an”.
The language has been debased to the extent that modern gramaticists are willing to...just give up...on the proper use in this case.
Well when you illegally raise money all over the world, you can put up those kind of numbers
What is to stop me, if I am a foreigner, from buying pre-paid credit card, then donating it all online to obamma, giving a false name and address? How would they ever catch me? Or see that my donation was illegal? There are so many way for obamma to cheat!
It is a modernitic equivalent of not correcting the confusion of ‘moot’ and mute’.
They just aren’t willing to defend the language.
The 2012 Ohaha campaign keeps falsifying its campaign income and outgo reports---as a way to build "deniability" in order to fool the voters.
Ohaha has tons of money secreted all over the place....and he grabbed control of the census--- he's got all the CV he needs to falsify FEC reports. There are people "donating" to Ohaha that have no idea they are financing his reelection.
Obama already spent $300 million to tarnish Romney/Bain---with little or no effect. Romney has catapaulted to the lead in key battlegrnd states.
2012 TEAM OHAHA IN CHICAGO MODE---MASSIVE VOTER FRAUD AHEAD
Remember, voter fraud is the Chi/mobs' specialty---do NOT underestimate Rahm and Axelrod (both running O's reelection), and Valerie whatsherface in the WH.
Let us not forget----the minute they hit the WH, the Chi/mob went into action: the WH Chi/mob took over the census---and now have all the CV they need to file phony FEC reports using stolen federal dollars falsified as campaign contributions.
Do not underestimate the wealth of cash the Ohahas/Chi-mob can come up with to rig the election......remember, these are the kingpins of corrupt Chicago politics. At one time, conscientious FEC investigators verified money was coming from legal citizens....but if Obama wins there will be no investigations.
There are billions unaccounted for in Obama's "stimulus" packages (some used in the last election cycle).....the Ohaha kingpins have tons of money stashed away for 2012.
POINTS TO PONDER
<><> author Dean Koontz estimates there's about $90 billion missing from the US Treasury.
<><> Ohaha's ex-COS Chi/Mayor Rahm Emanuel is running the reelection campaign---this Wall Street turd knows where all the money is hidden. Rahm also controlled all US Treasury assets (at Obama's behest) when he was COS.
WATCH FOR PHONY FEC REPORTS from "Obama for America" and two other DNC-joint fundraising committees the "Obama Victory Fund" and the "Swing State Victory Fund,"......and whatever other voter frauds they dream up.
2012 Team Ohaha is using the 2008 Anita (Mao) Dunn strategy to manipulate voters, to downplay Ohaha's destructive policies ....and his scary plans for the next term. Dunn said later, THEY, and only THEY, decided what the media should know about 2008 candidate Ohaha.
standard kickback on foreign aid
First there’s the fundraising fraud—they have turned off the address processing requirement for all of those ‘small donations’ online, opening the door for all sorts of illegal foreign and domestic fundraising.
Then there’s the voter fraud.
Then, they hope, comes another four years of the fraud in office.
And the correct spelling of “grammar” evidently. ;-)

Koontz may be right. He is a pretty smart guy. We know some 17 billion disappeared with the Corzine Caper.
Kelsey don’t mind...
I’m at work with a pipeline rupture and a pit fire out here in west Texas...no slack for the slackers, I guess.
Leave my father’s mother out of this!
LMAO!! You done good, bowa!
Most of that is going to the Obama parasites the main stream media for ads, any wonder why they LOVE HIM SO? Don’t ever kill the HOST.
