Jim Messina Sings the Blues

I've written two or three posts about the desperation coming from the Obama campaign regarding finances. Not only have Crossroads GPS, The Club for Growth and lesser GOP super PAC's out raised Obama's super PAC Romney is personally out raising Obama without holding 160 or so fund raisers. This email captures the tone of the campaign's self pity, fear and desperation.
Romney and the Republicans announced yesterday that they brought in more than $100 million in June. For context, that’s about what we raised in April and May combined. We’re still tallying our own numbers, but his means their gap is getting wider, and if it continues at this pace, it could cost us the election. If everyone who’s been waiting to give pitches in $3 or more today, we can start reversing this trend in just a few hours. Please do your part — make a donation of $3 or more right now. One hundred million is alarming enough, but it doesn’t even include the millions pouring into pro-Romney super PACs — or the fact that, unlike four years ago, it’s perfectly legal for the Koch brothers, Sheldon Adelson, Karl Rove, and anonymous billionaires to funnel unlimited money into attacking President Obama in critical battleground states. I’m proud of the way we build this organization. Through the primaries, more than three-quarters of our donations were from people giving less than $1,000. Meanwhile, in that same period, Mitt Romney’s campaign raised three-quarters of its money from people giving $1,000 or more. If we don’t take this seriously now, we risk finding ourselves at a point where there is too much ground to make up. We need to do something about it. Today. Please donate $3 or more:
More to come.

The election may be close but the fund raising aspect is going to be no contest.
