    Obama's war chest lags behind Romney's $147m after President's big spend on Bain attack ads

    Barack Obama spent more than three times what Romney did in June and raised less money than his Republican opponent but polls indicate his expensive attacks have had little or no effect.

    It was the second consecutive month that Romney had outraised the president. The Republican’s cash money advantage has prompted Obama’s campaign advisers to warn supporters earlier this month that he could lose his re-election bid if the disparity continues.

    The Romney campaign almost doubled its spending in June compared to May as the general election campaign heated up. But Obama spent $38.2 million on television advertising, compared to Romney’s $10.4 million, the bulk of it on negative ads attacking Romney’s Bain record.

    So what else is new. Everyone knows that the big money will unite behind Romney. He is the corporatists tool of choice.
