$181 million last month

I see the donations from Gaza have started roling in again.

:: Campaign manager Jim Messina wrote in an e-mail to supporters that Obama’s fundraising efforts in 2012 mark “a historic record for grass-roots politics.” ::

Grammer fuzz...it is “AN HISTORIC” not “a historic”...numbnuts!

Maybe so but he's going to need to raise another billion to offset Thursday night's debate debacle.

When is Romney going to release his September numbers? I wonder if he is holding back for a reason. Wouldn't it be something if he hit $200m.

We’ve wondered why the psych-ops in the month of September of his inevitability. I think a big part was to drive money, and maybe scare off Romney donations. We’ll see what he brings to the table. After a lighter August, I hope to see a healthy number for Romney.

I wonder how much of that billion has disappeared up Zero’s nose and how much has gone into overseas accounts for his “retirement?”

more fraud.
that REAL journalists would uncover.
-
these are NOT coming from small donations.
-
Obama is going down down down.
few even put bumper stickers on.
-
Libya, gaffes, worse economy, higher gas prices.
-
yet, we are expected to believe,
that fund-raising is just better and better ?

The Arabs are coming through. In the last 10 days you won’t be able to turn on the TV or your computer or any other communication device without seeing the kenyan. You wont be able to cast your gaze anywhere without seeing billboards and laser projections. I have long said that the kenyan has no spending limit at all, that if the arabs don’t supply millions of “small donations” that Soros would be worth a billion or so or that, in the end, he has access to and will use all the public money he thinks he needs. There will be no effective sanctions whether he wins or loses.If he loses, the Republicans will choose to let all the shenanigans just disappear and if he wins, nothing we take now for granted will be relevant.

So you do not pronounce the ‘h’ in historic?

Either way is acceptable though Messina’s way is preferred.

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.

OK, so let me see if I get this; Obama and team were begging for $3.00 donations a couple of weeks ago, now they're hitting record donations? Um, yeah...sure thing.

This is utter and complete B.S., just like the unemployment figures. Barry is nothing but a steaming pile of horse sh*t!

And he still WILL NOT get re-elected.

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.

Sadly...

DESPERATION TIME---OBAMATONS PLANNING MASSIVE VOTER FRAUD FINANCING

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.

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.

Koontz may be right. He is a pretty smart guy. We know some 17 billion disappeared with the Corzine Caper.

Due to his bad month, I bet Romney did about 150 million, under Obama.

But, I think regardless, the spending will be about even in this race with maybe a slight lead to Romney if he comes back on top in October.

That is a true sea change from 2008, when we were just overspent like nuts. If we are close to even, it’s likely good enough to win.

Do the math. Extrapolate, from the article, many donors there are. 180M / $53 = 3.4M donors. Granted, that’s a maximum, but the reporting limit is accumulative from what I understand and we probably can assume there are not *that* many repeats if 98% are untraceable.

Extrapolate to 1B and that’s up to nearly 19M donors. For a reference point showing how ridiculous to this, 24M Democrats voted for Obama in 2008 (not counting Independent vote).

Then go to http://www.fundrace.org or another similar website. Look up some liberal zip codes and guess what percentage are Democratic households. Chances are, the percentages of households that donated to Obama are 5% or less — which is ridiculous when the statistics of Obama’s numbers suggest that Obama has a donation base that is equivalent of 30%-80% of all Democrats that voted for Obama.

Obama has a blank check revenue stream from somewhere that is obvious to anyone who can do a teensy bit of math.
