7 emails and 3 text messages a day from the campaign tells me they may be right.

And knowing is half the battle...

We are in trouble. Especially if that corporate vulture Romney wins.
 
2012-08-07 11:48:38 AM
Is this a different article than the last one we had about Campaign Fundraisers trying to raise funds for a campaign?
 
2012-08-07 11:50:43 AM
It certainly must be nice being an incumbent president, leading in the polls, and still getting to play the underdog because your opponent has raised a shiatload of money and you've only raised 9/10 of a shiatload.
 
2012-08-07 11:52:25 AM
Obama only raised $75 million last month? Maybe Rmoney is better at this thing. Better vote for him.

The Homer Tax: Is this a different article than the last one we had about Campaign Fundraisers trying to raise funds for a campaign?


This is probably the one about Obama being crushed in fundraising again in July and his campaign starting to realize that might be a problem.

The comments over there are priceless. Trolls, take heed.
 
2012-08-07 11:53:52 AM
and according to 538 obama is killing romney in all polls, so, maybe this will be the first election where a candidate outspent the other and lost?
 
2012-08-07 11:54:01 AM
Whoring.

So yes, both sides are bad.

And yes, vote Republican. Or Democrat.
 
2012-08-07 11:54:46 AM
SCOTUS opened up the floodgates for fat cats to donate to the GOP and the poor economy for the middle class + union busting is drying up the Dems' money supply.
 
2012-08-07 11:54:59 AM
Desperation. 0bama's got it.

Being out raised by Romney must really annoy 0bama, the smartest and most popular President EVA!

We already had one about that a couple of days ago...maybe last week?

This is very clever. I've seen this tactic before.

Obama ADMITS that Romney is going to win!

...c'mon guys, do you have any idea how hard it is digging up these non-sequitor articles, making up irrelevant headlines, and then trying to stir up hate and discontent with them?
 
2012-08-07 11:55:51 AM
Either way you are going to have some pissed off individuals after the election, the right wing has been at maximum outrage since the black guy took over and if he gets reelected they'll go into overdrive. If Romney wins it's payback time and if there is a single capitulation from the left to that douchebag I'll eat my hat.
 
2012-08-07 11:56:09 AM
They cannot project to certain an air of "Don't worry, we got this", otherwise, for some reason the assumption is the base doesn't get out the vote because "it's in the bag".

I've never heard of anyone not voting for the side they support because it's a sure thing. I have heard of people not voting because the other guy always wins, but never because their team always wins.

That said, I think they are actually afraid of the massive sums Romney is getting. I'm waiting for the calls of "Romney is buying the Presidency", but so far, they've been rather quiet. If he keeps reaping huge sumsof cash, I expect October to be nothing but "Rich guy is buying the White House".
 
2012-08-07 11:56:52 AM
If we as a country are dumb enough to elect Rmoney then we deserve the shiatstorm that will be his tenure in office. The thought of a wholly Republican controlled congress/president/court should send shivers down any logically thinking person's spine.

/I'm very greatful to have the ability to escape to Brazil if it ever gets that bad.
 
2012-08-07 11:57:14 AM
The question is at what point does political advertising dollars reach critical mass, particularly when it comes to Presidential Elections where everyone is already aware of the candidates, paying attention to the race and likely already determined their choice.

Vote Pork Grinds or Meth Factories. You know you wanna...

The rich are giving to Romney because he represents their interests? Who would have seen this coming?

American political system; the best money can buy!
 
2012-08-07 11:58:14 AM
Just like NPR is always 1 fundraiser away from going out of business

Not as much as it will annoy Romney when he learns that the Presidency is the one thing he can't buy.
 
2012-08-07 11:58:35 AM
They should amend citizens united to say that if you want to donate money to a campaign then you have to match funds equally for schools, police depts, fire depts, etc. People waste billions on tv commericals and ads for rich idiots trying to get power, we could be making improvements on our country with that money
 
2012-08-07 12:00:24 PM
I know the news media has a vested interest in making this seem like a close race -closer than it may really be- but does that also include FARK?

If Obama wins in November, it will make me incredibly happy to know that people like Adelson threw millions at a candidate and still couldn't buy the election.
 
2012-08-07 12:02:42 PM
the american people are FAR better off than they were four years ago, tardmitter. and they'd be FAR better off still if the GOP weren't intentionally trying to crater the economy to win an election.

It still might come down to Florida...and Florida is batshiat insane so you never know what will happen.


/a Mickey Mouse - George Zimmerman ticket might win Florida

Well I know we had one last month when Obama was out raised in June.

I remember because the consensus on Fark was that campaign funds don't matter and Obama has this thing wrapped up, which everyone would know if it wasn't for the gigantic liberal (conservative? W/e) media conspiracy to make the election look close.

/538 also says no new states turning blue this year
//wonder if that massive fundraising might have any effect on the battleground states
///nah, Fark politics tab told me it's in the bag, Obama's campaign managers are dumb for being worried about it

Mittens and his wall street buddies are doing their damndest to buy another american election.

Right, there has to be a point to where spending a certain amount doesn't have the same rate of return. I would wonder if there's a point where that curve is even parabolic, and you start saturating the market to your detriment.

I have a feeling we're going to find out the answers to both of those questions this November.

that is my prediction. many americans are getting tired of the old 'money will buy us elections' thing. Rmoney and his Owners are going to blow alot of green and i'm hoping their faces turn green with nausea on election night.

You sound Concerned. How many states does Obama need to flip to win re-election? How is Obama polling in those battleground states despite the massive discrepancy in campaign donations?

Hint: Obama's not the one who needs to "flip" anybody.

Why does Obama need more states to TURN blue this election? He needs to keep the ones he had in 2008 and he can even afford to lose a couple and still win.

When those who aren't yet paying attention see Rmoney in the debates, the amount of money raised will not matter.

This will be a landslide victory for Obama.

Hobodeluxe: SCOTUS opened up the floodgates for fat cats to donate to the GOP and the poor economy for the middle class + union busting is drying up the Dems' money supply.


Then I guess Obama should get to work on fixing the economy so his voters can become his contributors.

there's a reason I ignore tenpoundsofderp. too bad others don't and I still get to see his retarded dreck.

From the looks of 538.com and Nate Silver's numbers, Obama doesn't seem to be in that much trouble.

True Independents win elections... and it's the money you can't see that usually buys them.

i don't think it'll be a landslide, but Obama will have a clear win. the Repukelicans have the money to fool lots of fools.

Assuming there are debates.

I can see Romney pulling a "I've already told you people all you need to know".

There are only Two types of Republicans:

1)Wealthy

2)Fools


which are you?
