What a pity. Maybe you shouldn’t have wasted hundreds of millions on ads demonizing Mitt Romney. All that plus 98% of the media in their back pocket just hasn’t been enough.
Now it’s time to snivel.
“We just found out that Mitt Romney and the Republicans outraised us in the first half of this month, putting us $45 million behind during these crucial final days,” Obama campaign manager Jim Messina wrote in a fundraising plea to supporters.
“With that cash advantage, they can outspend us by $4 million per day, every day, for the final 11 days,” he warned.
He forgets to point out Obama has far outspent Romney, of course.
“Obama’s campaign has raised $326 million to Romney’s $227 million, according to filings with the Federal Election Commission and the campaign’s own reports of its June fundraising,” The Washington Examiner’s Tim Carney explained earlier this year, in light of Obama poor-mouthing himself. “That’s a 44 percent lead for Obama.”
I suppose it’s written somewhere that Republicans aren’t allowed to spend as much, if not more, than Democrats.
