Good News/Bad News: Romney's Fundraising Continues Outstripping Obama's; "Daisy Cutter" Ad Campaign Ready To Detonate; But Clinton's Ratings A Good Deal Higher Than Ryan's

Another $100 million month for Romney.

Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign is expected to have raised more than $100 million last month, according to two people familiar with the matter, marking the third straight month the Republican’s money effort has crossed the nine-figure threshold.

The final number will be announced next week, but the total shows that Mr. Romney’s fundraising network – so far relying heavily on large donors from the financial sector – has not tired as the general election approaches.

President Barack Obama’s re-election bid has not yet announced its fundraising total for August. Still, Mr. Romney and the Republican National Committee have outraised Mr. Obama for the three months prior. Mr. Obama’s monthly fundraising record this election is $75 million.

$25 million here, $25 million there, and pretty soon you're talking about real money.

Romney and allied groups are not buying ads in Michigan or Pennsylvania-- yet. But they're about to hit the airwaves in other swing states.

Senior Romney-Ryan campaign officials tell Fox News the campaign will launch an enormous media offensive on Friday, the day after President Obama accepts the Democratic Party’s nomination for a second term. The push will include ad buys in several states that will cost tens of millions of dollars…

Romney-Ryan officials did not repudiate such talk; indeed, one official, in speaking to Fox News, likened the offensive that will begin Thursday to the “daisy cutter” bombs used in the Iraq war.

I'm glad for that, because my optimism swings up and it swings down, and currently it's down.

Yeah, when I said the election was over? I was on crack or something. It was probably because I overpleasured myself or something. I was jack-wacky.

Depressing me right now is the fact that only 20 million tuned into Ryan's dynamite speech but over 25 million watched former President Clinton's.

And his was, alas, very good. Deceptive as hell, but it all sounded reasonable, didn't it? Yeah, that's why he got elected and convinced the country that when he lied under oath about a tawdry affair with an intern, he was the victim.
