Quotes of the day

posted at 9:01 pm on July 21, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

By the end of June, Romney’s campaign, along with the party fundraising committees, had $170 million in cash reserves, $26 million more than Obama and the Democratic committees had available. That in part is due to the huge amounts of money Obama has spent as part of an effort to define Romney early to voters, points out Politico. Obama has spent a combined $189 million in April through June, compared to the $138 million spent by Romney. In ads alone, the Obama campaign spent $43 million last month, compared to Romney’s $12 million.

Republicans also enjoy a nice cash advantage with the outside groups known as super PACs. Even though the pro-Obama Priorities USA group had its best month yet in June, raising $6.2 million, it was nowhere close to the $20 million raised by pro-Obama super PAC Restore Our Future, reports the Hill. Priorities USA spent more than it raised in June as it unleashed a barrage of ads targeting Romney’s tenure at Bain Capital.

***

Obama entered July with $97.5 million in the bank, and used a part of it to run 35,347 television ads in the 14-day period ending July 16, according to New York-based Kantar Media’s CMAG. The Romney campaign, which began July with $22.5 million, aired 16,946 spots during that period. Since more than 97 percent of those commercials were negative, that meant voters saw twice as many campaign-funded ads attacking Romney rather than Obama. …

Obama continued to draw down his campaign account, spending $58.1 million last month with $43 million for advertising, including broadcast and online. Romney spent $27.5 million during the month, less than half as much as Obama, with $11.1 million going for media.

“President Obama’s campaign will never have a more substantial advertising advantage than it has had over the past few weeks, yet there is no evidence to suggest that the ballot has moved,” Romney’s pollster, Neil Newhouse, said in a July 16 memo.

***

A much smaller group of wealthy liberals gave money last month to Priorities USA Action, including actor Morgan Freeman, who put in $1 million. Chicago media company executive Fred Eychaner also gave $1 million.

But big Democratic donors have largely steered clear of the super PAC, focusing their efforts instead on raising money directly for Obama’s campaign. So far, Obama’s bundlers have brought in at least $143 million, according to a Los Angeles Times analysis of data provided by the campaign.

In the last three months, 107 new bundlers joined the effort, including longtime Democratic money man Terry McAuliffe, “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy, private equity chief Hamilton James, tech investor Chris Sacca and Maryland Gov.Martin O’Malley. Together, they raised at least $14.6 million for the quarter.

***

“I don’t think the effort was designed to sway voters so much as it was a way to get the Democratic base motivated again,” Smith added. “To give them something to be angry about again.”

And that is a sad statement about the Obama campaign. The president can’t possibly run positive ads about his record, so his only option is to fire up Democratic voters to hate Romney. But even many Democrats are troubled by Obama’s relentlessly negative — and mostly misleading — campaign. …

No, it appears the only Obama campaign strategy right now is to keep hammering on Romney’s business record, and somehow convince voters that the exact date of Romney’s departure from Bain Capital is more important than the 8 percent unemployment rate.

***

Campaign disclosure forms for Obama for America, President Obama’s reelection team, reveal a heavy emphasis on public opinion polling. According to the forms, in the month of June alone, Obama for America spent a whopping $2,639,265.72 on polling.

This appears to be a record this election cycle. And it does not include money spent on polling by the Democratic party in the month of June. …

Polling is often conducted by campaigns to make sure the candidate’s message is in sync with what the voters want to hear.

***

The National Republican Congressional Committee narrowly outraised the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in June. The NRCC posted $10.7 million in receipts compared with the DCCC’s $10.5 million.

The NRCC ended June with $41 million in cash on hand while the DCCC closed the month with $33.2 million in the bank.

“I don’t think the effort was designed to sway voters so much as it was a way to get the Democratic base motivated again,” Smith added. “To give them something to be angry about again.”

Well, hate is the way to go to appeal to Obama’s base — they thrive on it. And as far as it all being lies, they are too stupid to tell the difference and/or they believe whatever they are told. However, more striking to me is that Obama has to spend that kind of money just to shore up his base. That is a huge problem people seem to overlook.

Since more than 97 percent of those commercials were negative, that meant voters saw twice as many campaign-funded ads attacking Romney rather than Obama. …

The Romney attack ads will not be as effective as the Obama attack ads. Why? Because voters already know what they are getting with Obama. They know his strengths and weaknesses. They dont need negative ads to tell them this.

What they need to know is if the challenger can do any better. Romney spending all his doe attacking Obama is a waste of money. He can’t win that kind of fight with a skilled politician like Obama. Obama will eat him alive.

For Romney to even have a shot, he needs to convey to the American people that he can do a much better job than Obama. Unfortunately voters don’t see him having a better plan than Obama hence the reason why Obama continuously keeps leading in the polls.

Uppereastside on July 21, 2012 at 9:37 PM

You are very delusiona liberal scum but most liberal are like that… At the end the majority of voters are going to ask the very simple question “Do we want four more years of this CRAP?” and the majority of voters would say “NO, Hell NO”…

Now go and f*** yourself…

Obviously, they’ve spoken with you before & realize it is a waste of time engaging you on the topic, so they tell you what you want to hear. Being as you are an Obama supporter, they are also smart enough to realize you will believe whatever you are told.

Romney will destroy Obama in the debates, just like he did Perry and Gingrich. Add 4 straight months of terrible economic news, a base that doesn’t care as much this time around and fired-up Republicans, and it spells disaster for Obama.

Saw that, too, OC, but her expectation of bannage and the “goodbye” seemed to me as hints that her emotions were clicking at a high level, and quite understandably, but she’s a fighter, a happy warrior really, and someone who I expect quite soon will return to the fight.

… “It” will start jumping up and down in the corner, making one outrageous statement after another, hoping someone will respond, until the one day, “it” goes too far.

Just like Conservatism, Capitalism, the Free Market, and other trolls on this site…

… “It” will start jumping up and down in the corner, making one outrageous statement after another, hoping someone will respond, until the one day, “it” goes too far.

Just like Conservatism, Capitalism, the Free Market, and other trolls on this site…

… It works every time it’s tried.

Just my $0.02…

…think you’re right!…like most trolls…it used to only go on a few threads each day…drop a few turds in the beginning…and look back at all the shat that followed.
Now it frequents them all and even likes to screw up your Quotes of the day…
In the last week…one or two of them came out on a thread…tried 2 or 3 times to stir the pot and when no one responded…they took their ladle and left!

Bristol asked families of small business owners to send in photos. Some are now featured in this video:

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/bristolpalin/2012/07/i-built-this-the-video/

It will be one of the best, if not the best, videos of campaign 2012. It reminded me of a WSJ editorial from three years ago, in which Dorothy Rabinowitz wrote this about Obama:

He is a stranger to the country’s heart and character.

Besides Not Meeting With His Jobs’ Council Once, What’s Obama Been Up To Since 01.19.12?

For one, he’s eaten more hamburgers and hotdogs in public than times he has met with the Treasury Secretary.

I went through his calendar. Take a look at 6 months in the life of President Focused-Like-A-Laser-Beam-On-Jobs. It’s pathetic.

Erika why do you keep posting this erroneous statement. Pat Cardell and Doug Scheon aren’t real democrats.

Uppereastside on July 21, 2012 at 9:24 PM

..shows us what an utter child you are, turd breath! These guys are the old guard before the Dems started turning into the Looney Tunes brigade of zit-covered, athletes foot infested, STD-laden loons screamin’ to end the war (‘n stuff). You can have conversation with Doug and Pat. (Except for Huge Hugh-witless who likes to pummel Caddell on occasion.)

My suggestion: stop rooting around in your mom’s underwear drawer, get out of the basement, extract your cranium from your rectum, and discover life!

Hey everybody:)

I needed a good head clearing day today, so the family went for a hike…

3 miles up one of the most beautiful canyons, new growth forest from a fire 10 years ago…not a cloud insight,wild flowers…
we were picking and eating fresh huckleberries and when got hot we cooled our feet in a cold mountain stream.

My six year old son after eating a handful of berries looked up and shouted. GOD IS GRRREAAT!

MontanaMmmm on July 21, 2012 at 11:02 PM

…like that M&M!…that is refreshing to read after watching and listening to the news all day…just reading what you did and his reaction relaxed me.

Normally I’d be right with to do just that. Folks informed me that they enjoy the trolls. For the life of me I don’t understand why. One thing I did noticed, when I ask it, Suck What?, it leaves. Since I have mentioned this, it will probably show back up, petulant. Since I have mentioned mentioning this it may not. Win, win?
