There has been a lot of concern about the decline in Obama’s fundraising. Koffler: “With Republicans steamrollering ahead with a group of well-fed Super Pacs and an increasingly successful money effort by Mitt Romney, President Obama Friday will attend six fundraisers, a possible sign of budding desperation for a campaign that is lagging far behind its initial fundraising expectations.”
The numbers throughout May have been dismal and when 69,000 jobs was revealed we wondered what Obama’s excuse would be. That’s how we found the above story, he’s out fundraising.
It’s similar to Axelrod doing his campaigning, campaigning Obama can no longer do in front of anything but college audiences. Ironically they are the people graduating with the debt and no opportunity to pay it off. He’s soliciting votes while sacrificing the dollars.
