Obama donors

  • In an anxious conference call from Air Force One, Obama asked campaign donors to send more money. Lloyd Grove obtained the tape and describes the presidential pitch.
  • (Daily Beast)
  • President Obama warned top donors that he believes Republicans can take Congress and the White House this year and criticized the media for "hyperventilat[ing]" about Mitt Romney raising more money than his campaign in May.
  • (Washington Examiner)
  • Within hours, a fundraising appeal under Obamas name warned donors of Romneys undo-it plans and said, We cant allow that to happen. We have to win this election.
  • (Lubbock Avalanche-Journal)
  • DURHAM, N.H. - When President Obama makes a campaign stop here this afternoon, hell have an anonymous donor to thank for defusing what had been a growing controversy over the cost of the presidential visit to local taxpayers.
  • (YAHOO!)
  • That money isnt coming from big time donors at fundraisers, but is made up of 55,000 separate donations, with 65 percent of those people donating for the first time.
  • (Town Hall)
  • President Obama is seeking to turn fundraising challenges into a fundraising tool.
  • (USA Today)
  • The amounts will ultimately be a matter of public record when the campaigns are required to disclose their donors to the FCC. Why not give details now? "That's not the point," said Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt.
  • (ABC News)
  • President Barack Obama's re-election campaign filed a complaint the Federal Election Commission Tuesday demanding that Crossroads GPS, the well-funded Republican advocacy organization, disclose its donors.
  • (Wall Street Journal)
  • As per usual, I dont particularly care what some jackass comedian has to say about politics, but I do pay a bit more attention to what a jackass million-dollar Obama Super PAC donor has to say on world events.
