The Politico breathlessly reported 18 hours ago:
President Obama’s five-fundraiser Sunday here will be one of the most lucrative days of his campaign, as he’s set to bring in more than $6.4 million.
Then, after a series of dreary fundraisers, he barely pulled in two-thirds on the “lucrative” day.
President Barack Obama zig-zagged across town Sunday, basking in a belated birthday serenade from campaign donors — and collecting as much as $4 million for his re-election bid from hometown backers.
So he was “expected” to pull in more than $6.4 million and slinked away with “as much as” $4 million.
Mitt Romney would be mercilessly ridiculed for such a pathetic performance. Will the Obama lapdogs at Politico point this out? Don’t hold your breath.
Speaking of pathetic, New York Times “reporter” Jodi Kantor tweeted Sunday about an Obama fundraiser being only half full, which was splashed on the Drudge Report. Yet now if you go to the direct link for the tweet, it no longer exists.
Looks like the Obama goon squad got to her.
Hugely energetic crowd at Obama event. Young, diverse, fashionable. Booed Ryan til POTUS stopped them.
