U Mad, Bro? Obama Hates Romney Because He's Not a War Hero Or Something

Balls, that guy, some assembly required.

From an ebook soon to come out:

"When he talked about Romney, aides picked up a level of anger he never had for Clinton or McCain, even after Sarah Palin was picked as his running mate. 'There was a baseline of respect for John McCain. The president always thought he was an honorable man and a war hero,' said a longtime Obama adviser. 'That doesn't hold true for Romney. He was no goddamned war hero.'"

Obama, of course, was awarded the Silver Star for the Battle of Tony Rezko's Adjoining Plot.

Maybe this explains some of the Lightworker's anger:

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and the Republican National Committee raised $101.3 million in July, once again outpacing President Barack Obama and Democrats with a big month of financial strength ahead of the November 6 election.

Obama's campaign and the Democratic National Committee raised $75 million in July, lagging for the third straight month as Democrats brace to witness Obama become the first incumbent to be outspent in the final stretch of the campaign.

Continuing to rely largely on big donors, the Romney campaign, the RNC and state Republican parties involved in the joint fundraising effort had $185.9 million left in cash on hand at the end of last month. Obama's campaign has not disclosed its cash on hand at the end of July.

Obama's still ahead in total cash raised, but that advantage is fading, and besides, it appears he's spent the bulk of it already. Burn notice:

Obama’s High Burn Rate Scorches Campaign Schedule


President Obama has gone where no incumbent has gone before: a massive, intensely negative dreadnaught of a campaign that has been pounding his challengers since April. And now, he’s paying the price.


Democrats told The Hill that Obama was adding more high-dollar fundraisers next month – events like the $40,000-a-head soiree that took Obama to New York on Monday night. But, more significantly, Obama will also be doing a higher number of fundraisers in the fall.

The Obama campaign is sitting on mountains of cash right now, but he is burning through it at an astonishing rate....

The president and his men knew this big, ugly and early approach would be hugely expensive. There were whispered brags that the campaign would raise $1 billion...

This plan led Obama to hold more fundraisers than his past five predecessors combined and left him open to constant attacks from Republicans who unfailingly point out that while Obama has attended more than 120 fundraisers in the past six months, he has not met once with his jobs council. Obama has nuzzled Hollywood heavyweights, Wall Street financiers, same-sex marriage enthusiasts and other rich liberal groups day after day.

Unfortunately for Democrats, Obama’s unprecedented fundraising push has not kept pace with his unprecedented campaign-spending rate.

In fairness, no one in Obama's campaign could have possibly foreseen he had a problem with spending more money than he had on hand.

Teeing Up The Next Attack?

This story is not about Obama hating Romney... it's just a "clever" way of bringing up the fact that Romney didn't serve. The next attack wave begins... -- The MegaIndependent
