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).

Dear Pesident Obama & Michelle:

Yes you will be fine. Beginning next Jan 20, both of you will be the ward of our country. You may need to cut back on travel some, but you will still be fine. On a brighter note, you will be able to get 100K plus for your speaches. As we all know that is about all you are good at doing.
Don’t worry about the middle class. We will be fine also after you are gone. Too bad you can’t be one of us. But you never were.

Not only “Michelle and I will be fine”, but the campaign also put out the “We can win without Ohio” line.

I comfortable saying it’s over. Call it for Romney. That “preference cascade” will keep cascading because we haven’t even started to see the polls for realistic turnout splits.

Check out the splits. Obama has to get D plus 9 or 10 just to tie when you calculate using all of the internal preferences and splits from D/R/I.

I hope those of you who elected this child (I would say boy but it would be spun as racist) are proud of yourselves. You put in the office of C in C an incompetent boob. America needs a father figure as POTUS not a pimply teenage kid who lies every time he gets caught sneaking out of the house.

This tells us that, with the indys at least, they expected Zero to flame out, they expected him to fail, they expected him to turn in a lousy performance. When he didn’t do that as completely as they expected, they gave him a slight win…but they still think he stinks. They’re giving him an affirmative action win: “Well, yeah, he didn’t entirely suck. What? Vote for him? Ummm…no.”

Obuma has always depended on others to prop him up. (ex. Without radical Leftists/Marxists/Islamists backing and the MSM/Press lies and cover, Obuma would not be POTUS) When Obuma had to prop himself up, the looser Obuma was dramatically exposed.

I don’t want to lose this election.
Power is fun!

Not because of what losing would mean for me — Michelle and I will be fine no matter what happens.
We have squirreled away as much of your money as possible and covered our tracks. It’s amazing how something like 200 million can sneak by unnoticed when trillions are being spent.

But because of what it would mean for our country and middle-class families.
I fear that people may realize that work and prosperity are more valuable than government handouts.

This race is very close.
Holy crap, Messina just told me that internals have me down five in Pennsylvania.

Great observations MKH.

Michelle and I will be fine no matter what happens.

Does Obozo honestly think people are sitting around going … “Oh dear, HOW will Barack and Michelle cope with losing? I’d better kick in $5.”

And even if there are people thinking that … is that the “winning” message you want to send to the troops in the last two weeks?

It smacks of desperation AND narcissism.

A few more thoughts come to mind after reading this fundraising email … Everything is ALWAYS About HIM and Michelle.

- Gave the Queen an iPod loaded with his speeches
- Regaled the Olympic selection committee with stories of Chicago and his hope of watching the Olympics from his front porch.
- Frames the tax debate in terms of “rich people like me can pay a little more.”
- Didn’t attend the Fall of the Berlin Wall celebration but sent a giant video talking about the wonderous amazement of an African American becoming president. “Who could have ever imagined that happening?”

Sarah Palin was right: Obama is all about living out his journey of personal discovery. That’s not what we want in a president.

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.

Like I mentioned yesterday, I don’t think “President of the US” is Obama’s dream job. I think he fancies himself as one day being UN Secretary General. As that would in his mind translate into “President of the World.” And I know some people have said he “Can’t” be UN Secretary General, because the US is a permanent member of the security council. But who here doesn’t believe Obama wouldn’t “renounce US citizenship?” Cmon. Obama hates everything about America, and Americans.

His ego will be so “hurt” on 11/6 after the “American” people vote him out that I fully expect him to turn bitter, will make Jimmy Carter look “classy” by comparison.

For the briefest second I thought you said ears, and my brain’s self-destruct sequence almost kicked in.

Mitt Romney should consider walking Ohio neighborhoods with Josh Mandel. He might as well just move there for the rest of the election as well.

Imagine how Jennifer Flowers or Juanita Brodderick felt!

I don’t know if the email was intended to be a veil threat towards women or just a rallying cry for the femiNazis.

Is it possible that he the cleanest candidate for political office who has ever run in the history of the nation?

Lily on October 23, 2012 at 3:54 PM

Nah, Gloria Bloom (Allred) has something real bad on him. Apparently, as a Mormon Bishop 30 years ago, Romney counselled a young Mormon church member to not have an abortion. I find it shocking!! /sarc

Do you think the Obamas are still going to party hard on November 6?

DrStock on October 23, 2012 at 3:58 PM

Boo-frickin’-hoo, Barry – if you’d done a good job the past 4 years, you wouldn’t be in danger of losing this election….

If Obama had governed like Reagan, or even like Clinton did after the 1994 elections, he would be running away with this election. Obama didn’t get the message from the voters in 2010, so they will send it again.

Michelle and I will be fine no matter what happens.

So take your Presidential pension and a one-way trip to Asia Hawaii, and you can be awesomely awesome on the world’s most beautiful golf courses.

If he loses, look for them to hold one last big bash at the WH. On our dime.

Par-tay!

“Don’t worry about me. I’ll be fine.” – Obama

“Um, thanks chief. Guess I’ll vote for Romney.” – America
