    In a worrisome development for the Obama campaign, Mr. Romney, who until now has been heavily dependent on donors giving the maximum federal contribution, also showed success in June drawing small donors, a traditional strength of the Obama campaign.

    Reflecting the intensifying general election matchup with Mr. Obama and conservative anger over the recent Supreme Court decision upholding the president’s signature health care law, Mr. Romney raised about a third of his total in checks of under $250, officials said on Monday. Mr. Romney and the R.N.C. now have about $160 million in cash.

    “This month’s fund-raising is a statement from voters that they want a change of direction in Washington,” Spencer Zwick, Mr. Romney’s finance chief, said in a statement.

    Mr. Romney’s surge puts him on track to raise the $800 million his campaign and the Republican National Committee hope to bring in by Election Day, leaving the real possibility that Mr. Obama could be outspent despite the advantages of incumbency.

    And with political reality reasserting itself on Mr. Obama, he is being forced to rely more heavily on traditional Democratic constituencies, like Hollywood, labor unions and gay donors, as well as his own millions of small donors.

    Barry has a record now and it ain't pretty. Hope and Change, Transparency and all the other BS he campaigned on ain't gonna cut it this time round.

    He's deflecting like a bastard because he knows his record sucks.

    All we're gonna get from Barry till Nov is class warfare, Bain and any other kitchen sink he can hurl to change the subject.

    No matter what he tries its still gonnna be about the economy, jobs and the clusterfuck ACA that we are now saddled with.

    That bad?? I think he will lose but only by a small margin. Never underestimate the voters.

    Or try not to understand the voters. Think it will be a tighter race as well.

    You mean the economy that Republican values have ruined and Obama's stimulus is beginning to turn around and the Affordable Care Act that Republicans oppose because they really don't want all americans to have access to affordable health care?

    You're right. This IS what it's going to be about.....

    But not the way you're thinking! :lol:

    One months donations an election does not make

    Obama had 260 million to Mitten's 120 million at the end of March. You people need to get a grip.
