June was a bellwether fundraising month for the Presidential campaign given the ObamaCare Supreme Court ruling among other things. President Obama’s fundraising, though impressive, fell short of Romney’s fundraising machine which hauled in over $100 million.

Report from Buzzfeed:

For the second month in a row, President Barack Obama’s vaunted fundraising operation fell to Mitt Romney’s, as the president was outraised by about $35 million in June.

In an email to supporters, the Obama campaign announced that they’ve been beat:

Well, I’ve got some good news and some bad news.

Good news first: June was our best fundraising month yet. We exceeded expectations — more than 706,000 people like you stepped up and pitched in for a grand total of $71 million raised for this campaign and the Democratic Party.

Bravo. That’s seriously impressive.

Bad news? We still got beat. Handily. Romney and the RNC pulled in a whopping $106 million.

Earlier today the Romney campaign announced its $106 million haul, split with the Romney Victory joint fundraising committee. The campaign announced that they received more than 500,000 donations — their best month of the year — and that they now have $160 million cash on hand.

In May, the Romney effort outraised Obama by nearly $17 million.

Undoubtedly this news will spur efforts for the President as his supporters open their checkbooks to keep Romney from gaining too much in the fundraising arena. Obviously Romney benefited from the Supreme Court decision which upheld President Obama’s health care legislation as constitutional under the tax code. This legal decision put the political battle over health care back into play with the White House being even more important for both sides to either repeal the law or keep it in place.

  1. This election has always been about whether enough votes can be purchased to win. Willard outspent his opponents by as much as 17-to-1 in the primaries.

    Too bad we don’t follow the Mexican model, where the PRI handed out grocery store gift cards to influence votes. At least then, we’d get something out of it, instead of an endless barrage of mind-twisting propaganda on the telly.

    • Goethe Behr —

      Here is what has been Scripted by the Controllers (that OWN both the BO and Rmoney) to transpire in the Presidential Election:

      Plan A — “Let’s have the masses think they’ve won a victory by having Rmoney win, and getting rid of the BO”. This will calm down these Cockroaches (the Bilderberg’s name for the American People) and we can proceed to further take over their nation while they are celebrating the removal of the Kenyan.

      Plan B — “Hey, Americans, you did your best to elect Republican Mitt, but he was just shy of a victory. So, the BO got reelected fair-and-square despite your valiant efforts”. And we keep on raping America uninterrupted.
      ———————————————————-

      How to achieve it publicly, to be palatable to the masses (aside their FIX of electronic voting machines):

      Spin the controlled media to report one day that the Mitt is leading, then a few days later that the BO is. Keep that Merry-go-Round spinning in the “news” till the cockroaches get hooked on it. Soon, they’ll start betting on the outcome.

      Near perfect planning for a Win-Win for The Enemies of the American People.

      One problem though — Ron Paul stands Strong and Incorruptible in these Subhuman Creatures’ WAY!

      One Patriot, The ONLY TRUE PATRIOT this Nation has in Office today — Congressman Ron Paul — has lit the Spark of an Intellectual Revolution for all to embrace! It’s meaning is as simple as a Universal Truth can be: “FREEDOM!”

      And the followers of FREEDOM are growing daily by numbers — and no matter what the Criminals-In-Power do to US (or to Ron Paul), we will surpass them in numbers eventually, and we will END Them For Good (never to show their subhuman shills in OUR Nation again)!
      ————————————————————

      To All REAL AMERICANS, i.e. Ron Paul supporters — wait till Tampa (and especially the day After) — and you’ll see SOMETHING to Remember!

      • I agree to some extent, but I don’t believe in Darth Vader.

        On the political side, there are two gangs of people who want power and control. They use “issues” to justify their existence, but it’s really about being in charge.

        As for the media, likewise, I don’t believe in a conscious conspiracy. They just want ratings and they USE the political process to whip up controversy, which attracts attention, ie, ratings. They bastardize and trivialize politics by focusing completely on the “horse race” and ignore issues. The result is that Americans tune it out, because they are so badly bombarded. The result is that people don’t get involved. They just vote for “their” party and don’t really care about issues. And THAT is why the party platform is a joke. The public doesn’t know what it is, the leaders don’t care.

        The applecart, so to speak, is overturned when a third party challenge arises. The two parties try to ignore the third, and the media go back and forth between ridiculing the third party and overstating its influence.

        The propaganda is that a third party is just a “spoiler” that draws from one candidate, but that’s not true, because human beings do not have a perfect set of values that fit one party or the other. So independents, and disaffected party members, will bolt on a certain issue. Ross Perot was strong with members of both parties until he started making personal attacks on Poppy. Likewise, George Wallace had a growing following from both parties.

        But the trouble with third-party movements is that they are usually cults of personality. It was the Teddy Roosevelt party, and more recently, the John Anderson party, the George Wallace party, and the Ross Perot party. Most recently, the Libertarian party was really the Ron Paul party, if it got any attention at all. And without him, it will revert to being just another nutty fringe movement.

        That’s why Paul should have spent more time forging alliances with other, like-minded people, to build a “farm team.” Rand could conceivably carry the torch, but I think he has been compromised by early success, and knowing that he will have to kowtow to continue his success. So we’re stuck with two parties who take turns making a lot of noise but not accomplishing much.
