As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Romney Fundraising Eclipses Obama’s

Mitt Romney and the Republican National Committee outraised President Obama and the Democratic National Committee by nearly $17 million in May, taking in $76.8 million compared to Obama’s $60 million.

The RNC tweeted the fundraising take this morning.

The news is a sure sign that for Republicans, 2008 is finally history. That is, the days when the Obama money juggernaut dwarfed Republican fundraising efforts are not going to return.

In fact, with Republican Super PACs far outraising their Democratic rivals and Obama’s fundraising trailing his campaign’s goals, the president may find himself at something of a disadvantage when it comes to political spending.

  1. You folks do realize whats coming now? Dear Leader and Moo will be doing birthday parties, confirmations, etc. I pity the poor Secret Service agents having to stand holding a pony’s lead “Take a picture with the President and this pony for $25, Kids!”

    • Surely they would try to control the number of appearances, so they’ll probably raffle off the picture…

      Come right on over to and sign up for the chance to win a picture with the _resident and his new pony, SJP. For a limited time only, we’ll toss Bo and Joe in the photo at no extra charge. Don’t let this golden opportunity pass you by, this is a limited time offer. For a miniscule $3 entry fee you can win an all expense paid trip to meet the coolest gay caballero in D.C. We’ll even share a few sexual innuendos together!

      • LMAO! We all better watch EBay closely. “Official White House furniture, fixins, 4 sale” Romney might have to stay in a hotel when he becomes President until new furnishings can be purchased!

  2. Ouch ! And that was during the month before the WI recall election. I have a feeling June will be better for Romney with this new GOP confidence :D

  3. Whining about Romney’s unfair money advantage over Obama even though Obama’s 3 to 1 money edge over McCain in ’08 was ignored in 3… 2… 1…

    • I love that the Tea Party doesn’t use fugly signs to get their message across. Compared to the OWS/Union drek that is.

  4. Keith,
    I am interested in donating money to a conservative super pac.. Any suggestions? I’m interested in the money going to ads etc. not administrative expenses.

  5. The “Media” is getting all worked over Romney’s fundraising… YET! the “Media” will kinda skip over the fact that Obama has had 3-6 fundraisers every day for the last 18 months

  6. Overexposure is a problem for Obama. Why go to the fundraiser this week when you know he’ll be back again, and maybe you can catch him there…

  7. this’ll be perfect for the Dems to spin. Special Ed Schultz and the gang decided the other nite that money was the reason the Scott Walker recall failed in Wisconsin. so now they can continue to play that game and whinge about oh dear, how can poor Obama compete against all that evil Koch Brothers cash?

  8. Maybe they should do a tour in July….31 parties in 31 days.

    He can tell sleezy jokes about his wife….
    Brag about whatever it is he did in four years…should take three minutes
    Bash President Bush over and over….
    sell collars for the cat…
    Clothes for the kiddies…..
    Announce that Michelle and barack want to sleep with you…I mean…They want you to come over and spend the night at the white house…..
    Raffle off a chance to either eat Lobster with Michelle in Cape Cod this summer or eat Chili dogs with Barack in Washington.

    I’m still waiting for the Obama singers and the Obama dancers….
