Obama’s 18 Minute Sob To Big Donors

President Getting Desperate For Money

President Obama used a special campaign phone on Air Force One this past week to dial for dollars.  IS THAT EVEN LEGAL?  Don’t Congressmen and Senators have to LEAVE their offices and the Hill to go beg for money?

Apparently all the rules are different for the President.  But the dialogue of his “campaign beg” have leaked out.  Times are tough.  The Democratic National Committee has had to change venues, cut the length of the convention from 4 days to 3, and Obama doesn’t seem to be using his BUS VERY MUCH!!!!!!!    Can’t afford the gas!!!!!!

WHERE'S THE BUS? Maybe that would bring in some money...if he could afford the gas!

FROM The Washington Post

Leaked details of a plaintive phone call from President Obama to some of his biggest donors this weekend offered a rare and revealing look into the typically private rituals of big-dollar campaign fundraising.

The pitch also affirmed the campaign’s anxiety about lagging behindin the money race.


In the conference call made late Friday from a special campaign phone on Air Force One, a recording of which was obtained by the Daily Beast, Obama bemoaned the anonymous super PAC donations flowing to his Republican opponent, Mitt Romney.

“If things continue as they have so far, I’ll be the first sitting president in modern history to be outspent in his reelection campaign,” he said, according to the report.

If Democrats didn’t write checks, Obama warned, such Republican PACs could permanently alter the political landscape. “The special interests that are financing my opponent’s campaign are just going to consolidate themselves,” he said. “They’re gonna run Congress and the White House.”

Maybe He Spent Too Much On ....The BUS?

Obama was candid and contemplative in the 18-minute call with donors who had given him the maximum allowable amount in his last campaign, addressing concerns that some supporters might be less enthusiastic — and generous — than they were four years ago.

“In 2008 everything was new and exciting about our campaign,” Obama told the unidentified donors, according to the Daily Beast. “And now I’m the incumbent president. I’ve got gray hair. People have seen disappointment because folks had a vision of change happening immediately. And it turns out change is hard, especially when you’ve got an obstructionist Republican Congress.”

Romney Attracting Record Dollars In Campaign To Defeat Obama

Obama has reason for concern.  Some believe that Mitt Romney will have raised $100 million in June alone.  At least $5 million in small donations have rolled in since Obamacare was upheld by The Supreme Court.
