  • Obama's Birthday Message: Give Me My Presents And Yours

    President Barack Obama will turn 51 in just a few days and has sent an e-mail to his supporters requesting his preferred gift - their cash. ""My upcoming birthday next week could be the last one I celebrate as President of the United States," the message reads, "but that's not up to me -- it's up to you." He then goes on to urge people to donate before the end-of-the-month reporting deadline. This connection between a birthday and our Fundraiser-in-Chief comes just a month after the establishment of the Obama Event Registry. That tacky little program encourages anyone who has...

  • Obama effort spends more in June than it takes in (0bama runs campaign like the Government)

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Amid a heavy barrage of advertising by opposing "super" political groups, President Barack Obama's re-election campaign spent more than it collected in June. While outraised again by Republican Mitt Romney, Obama ended the month with a hefty $97.5 million in the bank. June was the second consecutive month in which Romney brought in more money than Obama, finance reports filed Friday show. Romney's money advantage prompted Obama's campaign advisers to warn earlier this month that the president could lose the election if the financial disparity continued. Obama tried to answer the super PACs supporting Romney by spending...

The "little celebration" for the president's birthday will take place at the family's home in Chicago on August 3.
  • Obama wedding registry fund-raising strategy not a hit with brides (a total flop)

    New York Post ^ | July 16, 2012 | Chuck Bennett and Gerry Shields
    President Obama’s bizarre marriage-theme fund-raising scheme — where he asks couples to request campaign donations from their guests in lieu of wedding gifts — has been a total flop. The desperate initiative, dubbed “the Event Registry,” is being mocked by event planners and couples — and shows how desperate the Obama campaign is to keep up with GOP contender Mitt Romney’s fund-raising. Campaign officials launched the initiative in late June, the same month Obama raised just $71 million compared to Romney’s $100 million. So far, “the Event Registry” has been all but ignored on social-media sites — even though Facebook,...

    Not only are couples ignoring the idea of asking guests to contribute to the Obama campaign rather than buy a wedding gift, it has actually angered many event planners and couples. New York Post: "The number of links and stories about the announcement is very low since the news went live on June 22," said Meredith Klee, a spokeswoman for the social-media tracking firm Topsy. Her site's latest data show 1,137 posts on Twitter about the registry. And only a few hundred links to the registry have been shared on Facebook - even though Obama has more than 27 million...

    The Obama campaign may be attacking Republican rival Mitt Romney for investing abroad, but it is not shy about raising campaign cash overseas. Last week, the campaign held a fundraiser for American expatriates in Shanghai, raking in large sums from those benefiting from the sort of personal and professional investment overseas that President Barack Obama has cast as unpatriotic in a recent attack ad against Romney.

    Weekly Standard ^ | July 10, 2012 | by Daniel Halper
    Democrats are continuing to sound the alarm about this upcoming election. And the latest alarm bell is being rung by Senator Patty Murray, chair of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. Using a reverse psychology ploy to gin up support from Democratic donors, Murray writes, in an email to supporters, that "If we don’t close this gap now, the White House and Senate will be out of reach before Labor Day." Murray makes clear that the impetus for her sounding alarm is the fundraising gap between Republican Mitt Romney and Democrat Barack Obama. "The good news: Democrats set fundraising records in...

    In either a moment of anger or of trying to goad their supporters into ponying up more dough, the Obama Campaign released a new message: "This is no joke." The sentence came in the latest email to Obama supporters in which Ann Marie Habershaw, Chief Operating Officer for Obama for America, trembled at the prospect of the Romney campaign fundraising more money than President Obama. "We still got beat. Handily," Ms. Habershaw explained to Obama followers. "Romney and the RNC pulled in a whopping $106 million... You know what that means. We've got some work to do," she continued. She...

    In the battle for political cash, President Obama is finding himself in an unaccustomed place during the final months of the 2012 campaign: he is losing. Mitt Romney and the Republican National Committee easily outraised the formidable Obama money machine for the second month in a row. A nonstop schedule of high-dollar events around the country brought in $106 million during June to Mr. Obama’s $71 million, giving him and his party four times the cash on hand that it had just three months ago.

    Well, I've got some good news and some bad news. Good news first: June was our best fundraising month yet. We exceeded expectations -- more than 706,000 people stepped up and pitched in for a grand total of $71 million raised for this campaign and the Democratic Party. Bad news? We still got beat. Handily. Romney and the RNC pulled in a whopping $106 million. So, to recap: We had our best fundraising month yet, and we still fell about $35 million short. We can win while being outspent -- but we need to keep it close. You know what...

It was our best month of this election so far. But we still got beat -- and not by a little bit. Romney and Republicans raised more than $106 million, not even including money to pro-Romney super PACs. If we lose this election,...
  • 100 Million Dollar Man: Romney Sets Fundraising Record

    07/05/2012 2:05:29 PM PDT · by Joe27 · 181 replies
    Mitt Romney reportedly raised more than $100 million in June, the best fundraising month of his campaign so far. Politico's Mike Allen first reported the total, which includes contributions to both Romney's campaign and the Romney Victory Fund—a joint account between the Romney campaign and the Republican National Committee. A Romney spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment. That's two record-breaking months in a row for the Romney team. In May, the presumptive Republican nominee raised nearly $77 million—almost $17 million more than President Barack Obama's re-election campaign. The Obama campaign has not yet announced its June...

    George Clooney has signed on for another special guest appearance as the Barack Obama re-election campaign takes its summer fundraising tour across the Atlantic in pursuit of Euro-cash. The Obama campaign posted an invitation on its website Friday revealing that the presidential pal-in-chief will appear at a pair of Americans Abroad for Obama events Aug. 27 in Geneva, Switzerland. Clooney, who usually spends summers at his villa on Italy’s Lake Como, made a similar appearance across the Swiss border on behalf of then-candidate Obama during the run-up to the 2008 general election. Charles Adams, co-president of the campaign’s European outreach...

    MSNBC’s Chris Jansing wondered aloud Friday morning why President Barack Obama is being so quiet about his fundraising numbers. Following Thursday’s Supreme Court ruling upholding Obama’s health care law, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign took in a whopping $4.3 million in under 24 hours. Meanwhile, Obama’s campaign has been almost completely silent, with spokesman Ben LaBolt mysteriously gloating to reporters, “We’ve outraised the Romney campaign in that time period but that’s not the point,” according to The Huffington Post’s Sam Stein. LaBolt wouldn’t share any specific numbers Friday morning. “The Obama camp has not released fundraising figures since...

    Apparently, those “win a dinner with Obama” contests are taking a toll on Team Obama’s finances. The “donate $3 for a chance to get a seat at the table with President Obama and (fill in the name of annoying celebrity)” offers just aren’t paying off. On Monday, Obama for America Chief Operating Officer Ann Marie Habershaw sent an email to prospective entrants which outlined the difficulties of managing those “Dinner with Barack” events (the next contest, in which several $3 donors will win a dinner with the president and the first lady, has a deadline of Tuesday night). According to...

Without a gravy bowl where else am I going to keep my gravy?”
