As we noted this morning, the presidential campaigns released their July numbers today, and Mitt Romney once again outraised President Obama by a considerable margin. It didn’t take long for the Democrats to work the numbers into their latest fundraising pitch:
BREAKING NEWS: Mitt Romney and the Republicans brought in a whopping $101 million in July.
You and I both know that Mitt Romney will sell America out if he becomes President — giving more tax breaks to his Big Oil and billionaire backers.
The only way we can stop them is to close this fundraising gap – starting today.
Please do your part — make a donation of $3 or more right now to back up President Obama with a Democratic majority.
The reality is simple: If Mitt can bury us under a wave of corporate special interest cash, we will lose in November.
But if everyone who’s been waiting to give pitches in a few dollars, we can start closing the gap today.
Thanks for all you do,
DCCC Executive Director
What is sad about the Obama campaign, and the Democrats in general, is that they lack any vestige of a positive message. They have no positive agenda; no plans for a second term–none that they want to reveal to voters, anyway–and nothing to say about Obama’s record or that of the Democratic Senate. They have nothing left but the stupidest kind of demagoguery: “You and I both know that Mitt Romney will sell America out if he becomes President — giving more tax breaks to his Big Oil and billionaire backers.” That’s it. Beyond that sort of nonsense, the Democrats are utterly out of ammo. Has any political party ever been more richly deserving of defeat?
