Obama September Fundraising…Money For Nothing

For all of you that thought Colin Powell would make the smart choice and endorse McCain/Palin, what were you expecting?  90% of the black community is voting for Barack Obama, I expected Colin Powell to endorse Bambi and wait until the moment when he believed it would help Gumby the most.  Since I am not going to write a post about Colin Powell’s endorsement, you might be interested in a video about key black conservative leaders including Dr. Martin Luther King’s niece who are endorsing John McCain.  Go here.

This post is about Gumby’s fundraising for September, $150 Million; yeah, you heard that right, $150 Million.  But from who and where did all this cash come from.  I still do not believe that the record amounts of cash came from totally legal sources, and I am SURE that more than a few Americans smell a Chicago Rat.  When there is this much money involved, there is always an unseen agenda.  After fighting for democracy for so long, I am starting to wonder if “Socialism” is a red herring for something else.  But back to the point at hand….

Here is what the NY Times has to say:

Senator Barack Obama’s campaign announced on Sunday that it had raised more than $150 million in September, a record-shattering amount underscoring again the unprecedented amounts of money he has attracted.

The full details of how the Obama campaign raised its money in September will not be available until Monday, when it files its official report with the Federal Election Commission. But a separate filing by the campaign’s joint fund-raising committee with the Democratic National Committee, the Obama Victory Fund, underscores that Mr. Obama has also been powered by major donors as well.

Mr. Obama’s joint fund-raising committee, which can take in checks of more than $30,000 that is divvied up between the campaign and the D.N.C., collected $69 million in September. The fund funneled $32 million in September to the Obama campaign’s coffers and $26.5 million to the D.N.C.snip

McCain finance officials and other campaign-finance experts had anticipated that the R.N.C.’s stockpile of cash and strong fund-raising, along with the $84 million Mr. McCain received in public financing, would be enough to at least stay within range of the Obama fund-raising juggernaut. The R.N.C. finished August with $76 million in the bank, along with another $18 million transferred to it by the McCain campaign. But the Obama campaign has been outspending the McCain campaign by 4 to 1 on television, according to Campaign Media Analysis Group, which analyzes ad spending. The R.N.C. is limited to spending about $19 million in coordination with the McCain campaign but can spend unlimited amounts independently. Even with the R.N.C.’s independent expenditures factored in, the Obama campaign is still outspending Mr. McCain by 3 ½ to 1, according to CMAG.

Coupled with his appeals over the Internet, Mr. Obama has maintained an aggressive high-dollar fund-raising schedule. Just last week, 10 hours after he left the stage of the final presidential debate, he arrived at a morning fund-raiser at the Metropolitan Club in New York in which more than 120 people paid $30,800 each to hear him speak.

More than 600 people wrote checks of $25,000 or more to the Obama Victory Fund in September, including the actresses Melanie Griffith and Rita Wilson; Orlando Magic basketball star Dwight Howard; Andrea Jung, the chief executive of Avon; Gregory Brown, the president of the telecommunications giant Motorola; and Charles E. Phillips Jr., the president of the software company Oracle.

So of course, this begs a few statements and questions….

  1. The Obama camp must be worried if they are releasing this information ahead of the FEC.
  2. Obama needs the big names and the corporations to fund his socialist agenda.
  3. According to Real Clear Politics this morning, Obama is +5.3 points ahead of McCain.  Well within the margin of error if you include the Bradley effect.
  4. If the Obama camp is outspending McCain 3 to 1, and outraising the McCain camp a bazillion to 1, why isn’t Gumby 20 points ahead?
  5. Maybe in America, socialists cannot buy the election?
  6. The Obamas are spending alot of money and time trying to trade up to a house they do not deserve. Has anyone been able to list off the accomplishments Obama has achieved that actually did the American public any good?
  7. Are Americans paying for this?  I could actually feed my family for two weeks for this amount of $.  H/T to Shtuey over at Oh…My Valve!!!  The Real Fraud:

    Gumby is making progress in therapy. In a session of confession he declared, “I am the latte-sipping, New York Times-reading, Volvo-driving, no-gun-owning, effete, politically correct, arrogant liberal. Who wants somebody like that?”

    Pampers is making excellent progress coming to terms with who he is…now we have to work on his constant need for external validation. Quite frankly, it’s icky.

    Help out!. E-mail or call your Secretary of State’s office. Ask what the office has done to verify that Obama is constitutionally eligible to be President — how do they know he’s a natural born citizen??

    What evidence were they provided? Give them this site or others ( a link in an e-mail) and ask them to remove Obama’s name from the ballot until they have proof.

    It’s especially important to do this if your Secretary of State is a Republican.

    I was listening last night to Riverdaughter, Harriet Christian, Heidi Li Feldman and Marc Rubin on NO WE WON’T blogtalk radio. Harriet brought up something that has be very intrigued. She said that Obama was spending tons of money on advertising in New York, traditionally a very safe Democratic state. It begs the question: Why does he feel the need to spend so much money in a state that should be his for the asking?

    Does his polling tell him that he doesn’t have a comfortable lead there? Or is it that he has so much cash that he just enjoys seeing his face on television so much? Yeah, the second question is snark but there is some truth to it.

    Is it possible that the in the tank media has been pushing the meme that Obama has this thing all wrapped up only because the facts are that he is in trouble in states where he should have a sizable lead? And that the purpose of the media bamboozling is to repress voters that do not support him?

    BTW… thanks for the link to the video. It is awesome.

    It is not just in New York, he is advertising in CT as well. Maybe he has just raised too much money and needs to throw it away before election day. That would explain why I am getting junk mail ads from his camp also.

    ANYONE WHO THINKS OBAMA IS FOR THE MIDDLE CLASS IS IN FOR A BIG SHOCK. IF IN FACT HE RAISED $150,000,000 IN SEPTEMBER I AM SURE IT WAS NOT FROM THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. HE TURNED DOWN PUBLIC FUNDING BECAUSE HIS BOOKS WOULD BE SUBJECT TO AN AUDIT HAD HE EXCEPTED THESE FUNDS. PERSONALLY I DON’T CARE WHERE HE GETS HIS MONEY MILLIONS OF FAMILIES ARE LOSING THEIR HOMES, MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ARE UNEMPLOYED, CITIZENS ARE EATING CAT AND DOG FOOD BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO MONEY TO EAT AND THE OBAMA’S ARE SPENDING OVER $447 FOR 2 PEOPLE TO HAVE DINNER. AS ALWAYS OBAMA ONLY CARES ABOUT OBAMA AND IS SPENDING YOUR MONEY TO DO IT. HE WANTS TO SPREAD THE WEALTH HE’LL TAKE FROM THE POOR AND GIVE TO HIMSELF

  6. That bill is from the Waldorf Astoria right?
    Well, I have stayed there and what I think people are missing is that there is no way that is the price you or I or anyone else would be paying for that meal.
    Think about it…..it makes it even worse.

  7. And I should have added…IRANIAN caviar?
    Is it even legal to be buying anything from Iran?
    At the very least…it is appallingly obtuse. Obama won’t visit our soldiers but he and his “wife” eat caviar from the country that is responsible for killing our soldiers…IRAN.
    That’s rich…truly.

    I have always wondered why everyone is so enchanted with the candidate that raises the most money. Isn’t that an indication that they are in the pocket of the wealthy? McCain chose a limit. Obama originally agreed to a limit and then, BIG SURPRISE, changed his mind. So, now he can spend what he wants to buy votes. And this is the voice of change?

    But, notice, the MSM seems to think that the most money wins!!!! They just can’t wait to report how much money is pouring into this man’s campaign. Think about it, folks!

    I’m not naive. I know that money buys ads. It also, obviously, buys press. I guess we all have our price, and the MSM sure has theirs.

    It shouldn’t be that the canadidate who raises the most money wins the Presidency— it should be the candidate who wins the most American votes!!!!!!!

    Shame on the MSM!!!!!
