Obama re-election campaign thinks that $100,000,000.00 is a lot of money. Their latest whiny email reads:
Mitt Romney and the Republican Party raised more than $100 million last month.
Yeah, that’s a hell of a lot of money.
We can’t match that amount, but we have to close this gap as much as we can. If we don’t start right now, we risk falling irreversibly behind.
But wait, if $100 million is “a hell of a lot”, what about the $800 billion stimulus or $500 billion in new taxes Obamacare is expected to rake in? And what about the $15.8 trillion national debt (a $5.2 trillion increase) or even the meagerly $75 billion in food stamps?
And if 100 mil is a lot of money, and Obama can’t expect to match it, why is he spending like a drunken sailor? Just because Obama has more cash on hand now, doesn’t mean that he always will; not at the rate he’s spending, anyway. And he doesn’t seem to get the bang for his buck. Consider:
Two new polls show just how tight the presidential race remains. Rasmussen, in a poll released today, has the race at Romney 46 – Obama 45. Rasmussen puts the president’s approval rating in negative territory: 47-52.
Meanwhile, Gallup, in a poll released yesterday, has Obama leading Romney by 47-45. The president’s approval rating is break-even: 46-46.
These polls follow ad blitzes by Team Obama. If they succeeded in moving the needle at all, they didn’t move it much.
Rasmussen polls likely voters, and Gallup polls registered voters, so, presumably, the former is more relevant. Still, according to polls, Obama is slightly ahead in all battleground states, hence the panic in some quarters. From the latter link:
Barack Obama believes that politics is a knife fight, and the only rule is that he must win. His conduct reflects the unholy mix of a messiah complex with the muscle of The Chicago Way.
Barack Obama is a bully, and the worst kind of one. He’s a whiny bully. He’d hit below the belt, and then complains that he’s hurting.
Not that it has anything to do with this post, but consider that smoking is healthier than fascism.
