We haven’t heard the boast that “Obama will have $1 billion to run on” for quite a while, but those who are hoping Barack Obama will be re-elected have to be shocked at the relative condition of his fundraising so far. Knowing how to count and read tells anyone Obama could not get to $1 billion at the rate he is progressing since last summer. Nevertheless, this fact is scarcely touched upon in the mainstream media, as if not speaking about it means his fundraising problems don’t exist.
Last week, Obama raised eyebrows instead of money when it was announced he was asking people who are getting married (or celebrating other events where monetary gifts are customary) to redirect the money to his campaign. Given this fact, how long will it be before legions of Obama’s sycophants stand on street corners shaking tin cans with “Forward” on them?
By any measure, Obama won’t even get to the $ 750 million he had to crush John McCain with after tricking (a common Muslim fighting tactic) the hapless Senator from Arizona by reversing his promise to take only public funding – surprise surprise, he lied!
So far, Obama has attended over 140 fundraisers, breaking all records for these events by a sitting President. He has abandoned any pretense that he is interested in governing. He spends his time going from one event to the other, only stopping to play golf at a record rate as well. Nevertheless, he is NOT getting the money from these events one would imagine he would pull in. His campaign is begging small donors for as little as $3.00, and his big donors are backing away. George Soros does not have the money Sheldon Adelson and the Koch brothers have. The likely addition of Donald Trump’s contributions will further smother the few financial resources Obama will have.
The message here is clear: money has always equaled speech, and those who are speaking are saying they don’t want four more years of Barack Obama.
Money talks, and other things walk.
