Obama’s mopey new fundraising e-mail: ‘I don’t want to lose this election.’

posted at 3:21 pm on October 23, 2012 by Mary Katharine Ham

As with the second debate, Monday night may have looked like a victory for President Obama on the top line numbers, but if you looked a little deeper, the results for Mitt Romney were pretty good. More on that below, but a fundraising e-mail sent out by Team Obama this morning may be as clear an indication as any that they don’t feel like the president’s performance moved the ball last night. Yeesh:

I don’t want to lose this election.

Not because of what losing would mean for me — Michelle and I will be fine no matter what happens.

But because of what it would mean for our country and middle-class families.

This race is very close.

I’m not willing to watch the progress you and I worked so hard to achieve be undone.

Fired up, ready to mope. It’s not new for the Obama campaign’s e-mails to be written in the style of stalker; the come down from ’08 e-mails has been noticeable. But I’m betting the base could have used just a little more crowing this morning. Something like this from the campaign’s phone call this morning:

“We have the ball. We have the lead….

Though I will say the fundraising e-mail complements the screenshot from the second-term agenda ad, released this morning. Should have cheered this up a bit. Am I the only one whose brain read, “Barack Obama Complains?”

With the campaign’s allies resorting to the “racial hatred” argument and Obama himself releasing a second-term agenda, which is really just a “nice booklet” of nothing new, it makes me think the Left thinks the same thing about the debate last night as I do— that Romney basically passed the C-in-C smell test (wasn’t that a 90s dance-pop band?) and the debate likely didn’t move the dial much in this race.

The CBS poll’s 30-point win for Obama looks like a clear outlier, but I want to mention it before we get to the CNN and PPP polls, which both seem more plausible and have more demographic information:

The CNN telephone snap poll showed a much tighter Obama win of 48–40 among registered voters (with a sample of 34 percent Democrats, 30 percent Republicans, and 36 percent independents). Some 59 percent of respondents felt Obama did a better job than they expected while 44 percent said the same of Romney. On the question of being a stronger leader, Obama led 51–46.

But the most important stat of the CNN poll? Of those who felt the debate helped them decide who to vote for, it was 24 percent for Obama and 25 percent for Romney. When all is said and done, an 8 percent victory in the debate for Obama actually translates to a 1 percent net gain for Romney.

The Democratic PPP poll posted a bigger win for Obama than the CNN poll at 11 points and good news for Obama across most demographics, but there were these tidbits:

On handling foreign policy, voters favored Obama 51–47, but independents gave Romney a one-point, 49–48 advantage. Overall, 37 percent were more likely to vote for Obama compared with 31 percent being less likely, while 38 percent felt more likely to vote for Romney compared with 35 percent turning less likely.

But the stat of the night comes from the PPP poll: While independents by a 55–40 percent margin felt Obama won the debate, they became more likely to vote for Romney (47 more likely — 35 less likely) than Obama (32 more likely — 48 less likely).

When the economy absolutely bursts into blossoms after he is voted out, he’ll be screaming at the tops of his lungs, “That was MY economic recovery!” But there will be no one around to hear. His voice will echo in the wilderness.

It will be a beautiful thing to behold.

You know Barky is going to take credit for the economic turnaround when it happens.

This is why part of me would like to see him win the election, so he can follow through on his far left agenda which will inevitably result in a total collapse of the economy. The failed ideology of socialism would be shown to be an utter disaster and forever laid to rest once and for all, never to be resurrected. Then the productive people can rebuild and live happily ever after.

Dude. Just DUDE! There is no twinkle in his eye. There is nothing left in that man. He couldn’t even force a smile. He read that script once into the camera and couldn’t even be bothered to do another take when he biffed his line.

Plus this:

HE CANNOT SPEAK TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WITHOUT TALKING ABOUT HIMSELF AND HOW COOL HE THINKS HE IS WITH HALF-ASSED BACK PATS.

Obama’s never had real opposition in his life after Bobby Rush.

He had his opposition in the 2004 Dem primary disqualified with divorce records. He did the same thing to the 2004 Rep nominee, who was replaced by Alan “steveangell” Keyes.

Johnny Mac shot himself in the foot multiple times in 2008 as well.

wargamer6 on October 23, 2012 at 4:07 PM

I almost feel sorry for him. This is going to be the first time he loses and it’s going to be public and painful. In a lot of ways he a product of 40 years of liberal indoctrination and we’re getting to see it unfold in real time.

He really doesn’t know any better, doesn’t understand and has no concept of what’s going on. He probably thinks someone else will “fix” it for him, as has been done countless times in the past.

Oh well. Pity party over. GO AWAY NOW PLEASE.

kim roy on October 23, 2012 at 3:43 PM

I don’t and will never feel sorry for him. He truly believes he is the one we have all been waiting for and that without him we are lost. He is a delusional ideologue who knows exactly the outcome of his policies.

The ones to feel sorry for are those who will suffer because of the fact that he is willing to slash and burn everything and everyone to attain his goals.

Millions of people honestly voted for him out of a sense of hope and pride in our first black president. It was/is a thing to be proud of no matter which side he came from.

I didn’t vote for him and I am not surprised at the failure of his presidency, but there was a tiny kernal of hope that we were all wrong and it would be a good thing. If it was there for me, imagine how deep it was for those who voted for him and how devastated they are now.

It will be very difficult for some of them not to vote for him again and I think many will stay home rather than vote knowing what they know now.

I agree, GO AWAY NOW PLEASE and let those who are seeing their dream turned into a nightmare begin the recovery.

Romney/Ryan for Real Recovery.

This is going to be a surreal couple of weeks. When’s the last time we’ve seen a Presidential campaign in complete desperate meltdown?

McCain was pretty fatalistic about it. His only truly weird moment was the campaign suspension. After that he pretty much knew from September on that he was just there to lose and just quietly retreated from the swing states one by one.

Kerry and Gore were convinced from their handlers that they had it won all along, thanks to their attempted October surprises.

Dole… meh. All I remember about his campaign are the bits on Conan O’Brien.

Ed or somebody on here has made a comparison to GHWB in ’92 going on about “those bozos” but I was a little kid then. Never really witnessed two weeks of full on meltdown where a guy who actually wants to win knows he’s going to lose and starts throwing every bit of stupidity at the wall.

Gingotts on October 23, 2012 at 4:09 PM

Yep, this is the natural next step after months of ads asking for folks to give up pizza night and wedding gifts. How pathetic. Thank God I have a job, but I know people who don’t, and do they really think “Michelle and I will be fine no matter what,” impresses those people?

I thought about that also, whether it would be better to let Obama reap the fruits of his demented policies. Maybe that can be a schadenfreudich consolation prize if the SOB wins.

Socialists NEVER blame the inevitable failure of socialism on socialism. That’s why there are always some morons around that think that if THEY try it THEIR way, it’ll surely work this time.

MT @DougKass: Donald Trump will announce that he has unearthed divorce papers between the Prez and his wife.

I read a report earlier this year that said they nearly divorced back when Barry made that primary challenge against Bobby Rush for a congressional seat. (Rush famously said that Barry had gone to Harvard and become an educated fool). Michelle reportedly didn’t want Barry to run, because Rush was well known and popular in Chicago, and she thought Barry would lose. He did lose, and by a wide margin (2-1). The article said Michelle was pi$$ed that Barry had wasted money and time. It said she felt Barry was consumed with his own career and self-interests, and paid no attention to her or their daughters, and she was fed up with him and told him she wanted a divorce.

While independents by a 55–40 percent margin felt Obama won the debate, they became more likely to vote for Romney (47 more likely — 35 less likely) than Obama (32 more likely — 48 less likely).

So if Obama just keeps winning soon he’ll have fewer votes.

IBD/TIPP 2012 Presidential Election Daily Tracking Poll

Day 15: Oct. 23, 2012

Obama: +2.0
Obama 46.5% | Romney 44.5%

Sample: 37/30/32 D +7
MOE: +/- 3.5

* Obama’s lead over Romney eroded further in a polling taken the day of the final debate.

* Romney strengthened among males, going from a 1-point deficit two days ago to a 4-point lead.

* Likewise, Romney has gained 6 points among those described as “working class.”

* Romney also appears to have regained momentum among Catholic voters, among whom he was trailing three days ago, but has opened up an 8-point lead.

All of the movement is in Romney’s direction. I’m sure that RuPoll will be along shortly to tell us that, unlike his predicted Obama second-debate bounce, Obama’s third-debate bounce will materialise and reverse Romney’s momentum.

Resist We Much on October 23, 2012 at 4:52 PM

Dear Obamas,

I know that you will both feel a little bit down when you lose this election. But just remember this during the difficult time ahead: It’s better to lose one election than to be frog-marched out of the White House in handcuffs, leg irons and orange jump suits.

Unless there was specific proof of near-in-time infidelity with a male (he’d be forgiven or at least excused, even by me, if it was with a woman, given his current spousal unit), excessive near-in-time illegal drug use/addiction, child abuse, etc., this will be a big nothing. If it’s just the fact that papers were filed and they’ve reconciled or that they’re living a lie, well, what a shocka.

MT @DougKass: Donald Trump will announce that he has unearthed divorce papers between the Prez and his wife.

jaygatz33 on October 23, 2012 at 4:05 PM

Unless the papers cite infidelity, this could backfire and make Mooch look sympathetic. Baaaaad idea, Donald.

Rational Thought on October 23, 2012 at 4:40 PM

If it’s just a filing Donald shouldn’t release it…If has allegations against BO then release it…Jack Ryan FTW!

jaygatz33 on October 23, 2012 at 5:13 PM

Someone needs to YouTube a combination of stock footage of Obama with the audio from Dana Carvey’s SNL skit about Bush the Elder pleading not to be voted out of office. I suspect it would be quite popular, since the real SNL won’t do it with Carvey or anyone else.

M. Scott Eiland on October 23, 2012 at 5:21 PM

I hope the Romney folks are reaching out to The Donald to stand down. This is NOT the time to turn Barry and Mooch into sympathetic characters in a soap opera. If the divorce papers don’t cite a live chicken or a dead boy, stand down, Donald, stand down. Just let it hang out there, twisting, giving Zero’s team the jitters.

Rational Thought on October 23, 2012 at 5:30 PM

Obama’s mopey new fundraising e-mail: ‘I don’t want to lose this election.’

Yeah, you may lose, but I know you and your Alinsky/Ayers/Wright, etc. team will still be working behind the scenes to bring down America and instill international Socialism.

Or you may surprise me and just go out there making money off having been president and working to ensure your legacy like You Know Who.

Not because of what losing would mean for me — Michelle and I will be fine no matter what happens.

Because of course you think you come first in everybody’s mind, you puffed-up creature.

BREAKING:

UPDATE: JAN 21 2013, WASH DC Former President Obama still barricaded in WH Situation Room; asked for a sandwich with arugula and Wenslydale cheese. Negotiators making slight progress….stay tuned for further updates

BobMbx on October 23, 2012 at 5:39 PM

While I think such will be a big nothingburger, wouldn’t it be the ultimate karma?

Obama made a career of using divorce docs to force his opponents out of races.

Resist We Much on October 23, 2012 at 4:42 PM

Ultimate karma indeed! But frankly, who cares? It might even give Obama a boost in the polls. I couldn’t be married to that vile angry woman for any length of time and even a metrosexual beta male like the rat-eared wonder has limits on tolerance.

Happy Nomad on October 23, 2012 at 4:51 PM

Yeah, but the REAL revelation is yet to come!

That Nancy Pelosi has beeen using a STRAP-ON on Obama
for the last year now…the President did not pay
attention to her little remark about “passing the bill
to find out what’s in it”

Well, she has this clause inserted in there, as pay back for
her getting the House to pass his Bill.

ToddPA on October 23, 2012 at 5:48 PM

“Michelle and I will be fine no matter what happens.”

Unfortunately, the country won’t. Now, we can blame the GOP for some of this mess by Obama is the one that has made a second recession that will be worse than the first; a certainty.

No matter the topic, its all about HIM! A classic narcissist.

Bevan on October 23, 2012 at 5:53 PM

Donald Trump trying to smear Obama with proof of a divorce filing somehow loses some of the bite, if there was any.

Of course that will make the Donald racist too…. or something.

Imagine if this was planted as a reverse-october surprise to boost Obama sympathy… you know… for the kids.

AverageJoe on October 23, 2012 at 6:00 PM

OT: Gloria Allred is headed to Boston to see if she can get the courts to let her at sworn testimonies and gag orders from a previous case involving Mitt Romney.

I loathe that woman. How I pray the judge sees through this and kills it stone dead…

Oh…yeah…right. Good for you two.

That scenario only rings true in Atlas Shrugged. You can’t cure liberalism. If he were to remain President and collapse the economy, the libtards would still blame it on Bush and/or say that he didn’t spend enough money (that we didn’t have). They would still vote for the (D) and be all for tax and spending.

This says he’s lost, right there.

Michelle and I will be fine no matter what happens.

In a sane world, that would be after his release from Super Max.

The failed ideology of socialism would be shown to be an utter disaster and forever laid to rest once and for all, never to be resurrected. Then the productive people can rebuild and live happily ever after.

UltimateBob on October 23, 2012 at 4:04 PM

Cutting off one’s nose to spite one’s face, it’s never a great move. I’ve heard this argument many times over the years. “Let them have their ideology, let it fail, then it will never be heard from again.” That isn’t quite how it would work out, and even if it were, the pain suffered in the meantime would be horrific.

Let the patient die, then resurrect it? Doesn’t work with people, shouldn’t be tried to nations. But I do understand and empathize with the sentiment behind it. If only we could educate the progs without this level of disaster to prove that Socialism has never, and will never, work where humans are involved.

Freelancer on October 23, 2012 at 7:23 PM

You know Barky is going to take credit for the economic turnaround when it happens.

This is why part of me would like to see him win the election, so he can follow through on his far left agenda which will inevitably result in a total collapse of the economy. The failed ideology of socialism would be shown to be an utter disaster and forever laid to rest once and for all, never to be resurrected. Then the productive people can rebuild and live happily ever after.

UltimateBob on October 23, 2012 at 4:04 PM

Dream on, that’s not the way politics works.

I saw the C-and-C Smell Test open for Devo in ’82.

Almost sure that was C&C Music Factory, with regards to MKat’s question about smell testers in the recording industry.
