Obama running out of money?
Daily Mail ^ | 3/15/12 | Don Surber

How they campaign is how they govern — and vice versa. So it should come as no surprise that political pros are beginning to wonder if President Obama’s campaign is running out of money, even though he is unopposed in the Democratic primaries. Last week he brought in Bill Clinton to help him raise money. Ouch. Obama is Justin Bieber hoping to be saved by ‘N Synch. Follow the money. I did. Barack Obama sure is spending a lot of money: $63,236,869 through January 31. That left him $75,953,128 in the bank. He already has spent 45 cents of every $1 he raised.

I’ll bet those “dogs” for him and that British guy at the basketball game last night put a dent in his “war chest”.

Let him spend/waste all the campaign money he wants.

In 8 months, he’ll be given his dismissal notice.

Yes, this funny/sad outrage known as “The Obama Administration” will pass too.

That may be good news, but I don’t think he will need all that much money to win.

If either Romney or Saintorum get the nomination, he can coast over the finish line.

Yes, this abject failure of affirmative action will have a very embarrassing, ugly demise.

I cant’ wait to see the look in his eyes when he gives his concession speech.

No way....I just saw him shaking down community college students this morning for their federally funded lunch money. Don’t say that wasn’t a campaign event.

Over 100 fundraisers, 65 million spent already on his campaign - against Republicans who’ve been tearing each other apart in their own primaries - and the best he can do in most trial polls is to run about even with them - he is in big trouble.....

No. I don't think so. My left sock could be him in the general.

I think you’re wrong, but I’ll hope you’re right.

As would my toaster, but I do believe that Romney would pave the way for Obama and that Santorum would not generate enough widespread enthusiasm to be assured a vicory. I won't vote for Romney and will feel like I'm settling again if Rick's the guy - I will vote for him though.
