Lions and Tigers and Rich People, Oh My!

In late June, 2012, Obama sent out a fundraising email predicting Rich Republicans would buy the White House for Mitt Romney.

“We can be outspent and still win — but we can’t be outspent 10 to 1 and still win,” Obama said.

That’s such a crock! As of today (Sept 15, 2012), the Obama campaign has spent MORE THAN DOUBLE what the Romney campaign has spent. When other spending (e.g., PACs) is added in, Republican spending has exceeded Democrat by less than 3% and that INCLUDES all the money that went toward Romney’s primary battles.

Another item for my Juvenile Fundraisers list.

  3. OT. I looked around for a place to hook this, but I couldn’t find a Saturday grudge. So, it’s off-topic, but I didn’t want to wait for a Monday grudge to pass this along.

    It has the flavor in some ways of one of those made-up web letters. You know the kind: “my cousin’s buddy knew a guy who swears it’s true”. Sobering in any case:

    Excerpt from a comment on neoneocon. RTWT

    He said he is seeing with his own eyes military movements the likes of which he has never seen in his 20+ years in Israel .

    What he called a massive redeployment and protective tactics of forces is underway.

    Over the last two days he has seen anti-aircraft missile deployments throughout the Jerusalem area including 3 mobile units that he can see from his office windows.

    In addition, he has seen very large Israeli armored columns moving fast toward the Sinai where Egypt has now moved in Armor.

    There are reports of the top military leaders meeting with Israel ‘s Sr. Rabi which is something that has happened preceding every prior military campaign.

    His admonition is to watch carefully and pray for Israel and its people.

    He is convinced that barring something extraordinary, Israel will attack Iran – with or without the US – and very soon.
