This is your feel-good story of the day, even though the AP is spinning Obama’s fund-raising efforts as an overwhelming triumph, dwarfing his competition, and making him an unstoppable political juggernaut. John Nolte at Big Journalism is having none of that. Context is everything, you see.
Turns out, Obama is working twice as hard to make less than Bush did in 2003 –
Obama/DNC fundraising not only dropped off for the AP’s Precious One, but without even adjusting for eight years of inflation, President FailureTeleprompter was unable to beat the amount of money raised by the evil Bush/Cheney at this same time during their 2003 reelection effort. And I think we all remember how, at this same time, Bush was being pounded and demonized relentlessly by the corrupt MSM (including the AP) over Iraq. And yet, he raised more money than Obama.
How about that.
Read how the AP turned lemons into lemonade for Obama at Big Journalism.
After all of those campaign stops (many at taxpayer expense), and all of those undignified fund-raising emails begging for $3.00 for a chance to have dinner with the Emperor, and he still isn’t raising as much as the eeevil Bush did.
Obama Campaign Chairman Jim Messina gave President Obama’s supporters a bit of his mind this morning, scolding them in video and email messages for failing to pony up enough cash for Obama’s reelection effort.
“We have a challenge I want to talk to you about . . . that keeps coming up,” a perturbed looking Messina said in the video, which you can see below. “Too many Obama supporters think we don’t need their money, or we don’t need their money now,” Messina grumbled. “I totally get why people think that, but they’re completely wrong.”
Messina accused his own supporters for having a sense of complacency.
