Team Obama raises $90 million in the first half of October

posted at 7:21 pm on October 25, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

Earlier today, Team Romney (including Romney for President, Romney Victory, and the Republican National Committee) announced that, between October 1st and 17th, they raised a combined total of over $111 million, and still have about $169 million cash on hand — a pretty impressive haul no doubt aided by the general debate-watching public finally getting to meet Mitt Romney without all of the added negative noise from the Obama campaign.

This evening, Team Obama revealed via Twitter their own combined-total fundraising numbers for the first seventeen days of the month:

In the entire month of September, Team Obama outraised Team Romney with $181 million to their $170 million, but it looks like the debate season may’ve helped fuel a role-reversal from that trend. Either way, both campaign’s days of chic fundraisers are over and the donations are going to start petering out, and both sides will be looking to spend most of the money in their war chests in the next eleven-ish days. Ohioans — I do not envy you.

How the Obama Campaign Is Illegally Accepting Donations from Foreign Citizens

It’s been reported that Barack Obama’s re-election campaign is knowingly accepting donations from non-U.S. citizens, and PJ Media can confirm that it’s not only possible, but very easy, for foreign citizens to make contributions. I’ve been able to donate $25 to the Obama campaign in three separate transactions, despite being a lifelong British citizen resident in the UK. What’s more, two of my donations were processed despite the Obama campaign noting that I had provided a non-U.S. address, and despite my failure to provide proof of American citizenship when asked to do so.

Does that pay back the loan from Bank of America and the other hundred debt that the have. If they can get that much in a few weeks why did they still need the loan in the first place. They are so far in debt they will be paying well into 2014 or not at all.

tjexcite on October 25, 2012 at 7:26 PM

Why are the campaigns releasing this mid-month? Was it “psychological warfare” for Team Romney and “me-too-ism” for Team Obama, or do they have to report it now? If they don’t have to report, I would question the Obama stats as trying to lull the Romney camp into thinking they got it made.

More voting problems reported in Jamestown, Pleasant Garden
http://myfox8.com/2012/10/24/more-early-voting-issues-in-guilford-county/

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Once again, several voters in Guilford County are claiming the electronic voting machines are getting their votes wrong.

Now, some voters are concerned about polling locations in Jamestown and Pleasant Garden.

On Tuesday, voters who cast their ballots at the Bur-Mil Park polling location said when they attempted to vote for Mitt Romney the machine chose Barack Obama.

“I thought this might be a one-time glitch in the machine. I had no idea this might be happening somewhere else. This is when I called (FOX8) and said this needs to stop,” said Stum.

Guilford County Board of Elections Director George Gilbert says the problem is the machines needed to be re-calibrated.

Betenoire on October 25, 2012 at 7:32 PM

OT but has to be known. The is a quote from the Ulsterman Report by the informant White House Insider.

“The governor returns backstage and he is smiling and shaking hands, taking congratulations from everybody around him. He’s saying how great it was. Somebody yells out he’s going to win Colorado and the governor laughs and says he thinks so too. And then something very interesting happens. He moves away from the group of people just a bit. Maybe ten or fifteen feet or so. Just enough to have a little space to himself. And enough people notice that the area gets a lot more quiet, and they are trying to watch the governor without looking like they are watching the governor. They can all kind of tell something is happening right then. It was described as something very peaceful and powerful that came over that backstage area for a moment. And the governor, he lowers his head and his eyes shut tight and you could see him take a slow deep breath and then he lets it out and says quietly, but just loud enough for some to hear, “Lord, if this is your will, please help to make me worthy. Please give me the strength Lord.” And then his eyes open up, and he’s back to smiling and laughing and shaking hands and being the candidate once again.

I’m 100% convinced Mitt Romney was shaken to his soul right then and there. I think at that moment it was sinking in he might really be the next American president, and it humbled him right to his core, in every nerve of his body. And as he was saying that little prayer, you could hear the sound of thunder from all those thundersticks outside. Like this huge low rumble that just surrounded all of them at once. A quiet little prayer, and the sound of thunder.

The sound of God.- Insider ”

Now I am a crusty old guy who was not a big Mitt fan. However, I have learned about the man and reading this actually made my eyes well up in pride.

Or could have been the ragweed. /s

I see the Obama campaign has a new YouTube ad featuring Girls star (and fellow Oberlin alum!) Lena Dunham:

“Your first time shouldn’t be with just anybody. You want to do it with a great guy,” she says, referring to casting your first ballot for Obama. (What were you thinking?)

It’s a clever conceit, but feels a bit familiar. Perhaps because the same joke was used in an ad for Vladimir Putin’s presidential campaign earlier this year:

A suggestive ad rallying support for Putin’s presidential campaign shows a young woman seeking a fortune-teller’s advice. “Let’s find out, cutie, who is intended to you by destiny,” the mystic says. The girl replies, “You know. I wish it to be for love — It is my first time.”

Another ad from the same campaign featured a doctor telling a young woman, “The main thing is to be sure it’s safe. Especially the first time.”

Let’s just hope the campaign doesn’t delve further into the Putin catalog.

Campaign finance disclosures show the Romney campaign, the Republican National Committee and the fund they use jointly had $183.1 million in cash on hand at the end of September, more than Obama and the Democratic Party, who had $149.1 million.

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/10/22/us-usa-campaign-money-fundraising-idUSBRE89K00X20121022

That was for September though.

So Romney had over $30 million more cash on hand going into this month and raised another $20 million more this month so far.

Most likely all of it. No one has done any accounting yet on TARP funds, that’s where the money’s coming from via creative accounting and foreign bank accounts where a good chunk of TARP settled.

Barry is going to have to tap some more of that “overseas money”.

Sigh….. reminds me of a classmate many years ago…. strange parents. They didn’t just discuss the ol’ ‘birds and bees with her … they showed her how it’s done.

Back later… I feel ill.

Dunham’s responsible for her choices at this point, but as a child of hippies, she didn’t get the training she needed to have a good & fulfilling life.

Just saw the ad. Man that is one sick ad.

I was going to but I haven’t seen her since that last thread. If you see her ask her for me will you? I have to get some work done for a bit. ; )

President Obama said he regards all the campaign money as a “waste” that could be used in other areas. Said he’d pursue that in a 2nd term. Mark Knoller

Shaking my head!

So Team Obama is accepting donations via EBT cards?

Maybe this will impact his numbers: Obama.com Website Unplugged

Too bad Romney never got his website fixed to allow donations from APO/FPO addresses. Many of us in the overseas areas really would have liked to have sent him money by way of credit cards. 

He should have reminded everyone of this before waste before the
Obama campaign said to skip the wedding gifts and donate instead to him…

Many couple are now without a toaster and a blender. :(

Come on now, you love me, admit it. ; ) xo

We’re starting to see some Obama TV ads here in East Texas. They are on cable channels, so they may just be national buys that are being seen here. I can’t imagine they think they have any chance around here. Democrats are pretty rare.

$90M will buy a lot of bullshit.

Does that pay back the loan from Bank of America and the other hundred debt that the have. If they can get that much in a few weeks why did they still need the loan in the first place. They are so far in debt they will be paying well into 2014 or not at all.tjexcite on October 25, 2012 at 7:26 PM

Easy. The loan is applied to campaign expenses and repaid from all the credit card contributions that would otherwise trigger the various fraud protection schemes. FEW is going to follow money streaming into the campaign, but they’re not following the money used to repay loans. Double entry accounting are for evil capitalists not benevolent dictators.
