    Oooooooooh I like this.:D Romney is raising more cash it seems.



    US election: Barack Obama begs donors for more as Mitt Romney rakes it in
    Barack Obama has issued a plea for wealthy supporters to give him more money and stop his re-election campaign being outspent by Mitt Romney and the Republican's billionaire backers.

    "In a phone call from Air Force One, the President reportedly told a group of top donors "I can't do this by myself" and urged them to open their cheque books to "meet or exceed what you did in 2008".

    Noting that most had "maxed out to my campaign last time," Mr Obama told them: "I really need you to do the same this time," according to a leaked transcript.

    Despite holding a narrow lead over his rival, the president informed the supporters that his ability to campaign and broadcast advertisements in key battleground states such as Florida and Ohio directly depended on their generosity.

    Details of the call emerged days after Mr Obama warned supporters that he would be "the first president in modern history to be outspent" by his opponent unless donors upped their contributions.

    Mr Romney and his party raised $76 million (£49 million) for their campaign in May, while Mr Obama – who had not been out-raised in five years – brought in $60 million (£38 million) with the Democrats.


    And what make this hilarious is that the Dems are blaming Republicans for lack of donations to Obama.

    :lol: Libs never cease to amaze me.

    Joe Trippi, a leading Democratic strategist, said Mr Obama's network of donors had been slow to realise that they could lose, thanks to the circus-like quality of the Republican party primary contest.

    Or maybe they're tired of being scapegoated, as Boiking plays to his brokedick occupooper base.

    Obama has still raised more than twice what Romney has, in total.

    I can only speak for myself, but as a "lefty", I haven't donated any money to Obama because I think he's a shitball.
