Weak: Obama Camp Claims They Always Expected to Be Outraised by Romney

The sniveling continues. Man, what a bunch of babies.

The Obama campaign says it long anticipated it would be out-raised by Mitt Romney and the Republican National Committee, an unusual statement for an incumbent president whose fundraising set records in 2008.

“We assumed all along that Romney and the RNC would out-raise us,” said David Plouffe, a political strategist for the campaign, on ABC’s Good Morning America. “The real difference is the super PACS.”

In June, Romney and the RNC out-raised Obama and the Democrats by roughly $35 million. On Monday, Obama’s campaign put out an email to donors saying “We could lose if this continues.”

Good. That’s what most people are hoping for. It’s not a matter of the money. Mitt Romney could raise three dollars and it still comes down to Obama’s failures.

    What happened to raising $1 billion dollars? That was the only claim I remember them making. Besides sticking with public financing in 2008. I remember that one clearly. Pity that they didn’t.
