Obama Sends Out Email Saying He Doesn’t Have Big Money Donors Like Romney, Resumes Spending Day Hosting $35,800-a-Head Fundraisers

null

A little while ago I received an email from an Obama campaign that is in epic whine mode about how they’re being outspent (trust us Mr. President… nobody can outspend you).

Here’s part of it:

The Romney campaign raises more than we do, and the math isn’t hard to understand: Through the primaries, we raised almost three-quarters of our money from donors giving less than $1,000, while Mitt Romney’s campaign raised more than three-quarters of its money from individuals giving $1,000 or more.

As I was joining the president in damning those evil rich bastards who give to Romney and not to Obama, CBS News’ Mark Knoller tweeted this right on cue:

Not only are Romney’s supporters rich, but they’re also stupid! If we’re to believe what Obama says, these people are more than likely giving their money to the wrong guy.

Here’s the entire email. Just keep in mind it’s from the same people who recently earned a record eight Pinnochios in two days from the WaPo fact checker:

I will be the first president in modern history to be outspent in his re-election campaign, if things continue as they have so far.

I’m not just talking about the super PACs and anonymous outside groups — I’m talking about the Romney campaign itself. Those outside groups just add even more to the underlying problem.

The Romney campaign raises more than we do, and the math isn’t hard to understand: Through the primaries, we raised almost three-quarters of our money from donors giving less than $1,000, while Mitt Romney’s campaign raised more than three-quarters of its money from individuals giving $1,000 or more.

And, again, that’s not including the massive outside spending by super PACs and front groups funneling up to an additional billion dollars into ads trashing me, you, and everything we believe in.

We can be outspent and still win — but we can’t be outspent 10 to 1 and still win.

More than 2.2 million Americans have already chipped in for us, and I’m so grateful for it. As we face this week’s fundraising deadline, please make a donation of $3 or more today.

Every donation you make today automatically enters you to join Michelle and me for one of the last grassroots dinners of this campaign — today is your last chance to get your name in.

These dinners represent how we do things differently. My opponent spent this past weekend at a secretive retreat for the biggest donors to both his campaign and the super PACs that support him.

I’ve got other responsibilities I’m attending to.

Donate today to stand for our kind of politics:

Thank you,

Barack

He forgot to mention the gift registry. Whoops.

Mr. President, if you’re the first president in modern history to be outspent in his re-election effort, don’t take it the wrong way — it’s just that so many people are willing to give their last nickel in order to send you back to Chicago.
