The campaign trails have opened up and candidates have been throwing their hat in the ring left and right, but you have to be able to pay to play. And not only has the GOP been unsuccessful getting their money trail blazing, but they haven’t been that great at producing a candidate for President either.
According to President Obama’s campaign manager, Jim Messina’s videotaped quarterly financial report on YouTube, Obama has been taking care of his business. Congress has been arguing with him over the nation’s deficit, but he’s got a plan that they can’t see. It’s obvious from the paper trail he’s lined for himself for his campaign. He has already topped off at $86 million which is more than all the other GOP candidates have combined.
The $86 million breaks down into more than $47 million for his campaign and more than $38 million for his party. Before he was President, he broke records during his 2008 campaign with the supporters he attracted. And according to Messina, they don’t include any PAC or lobbyist dollars! Gobama! (We know we’re battling a mounting debt for America, but we not on that right now!)
