For the second Month in a row, the Obama Campaign is running a deficit.....just like how he runs the Country!

For the third straight Month, the Romney Campaign has out-raised Obama.


Obama campaign's spending outpaces its fundraising

WASHINGTON – As Election Day approaches, President Obama is burning through campaign money faster than he can collect it — exceeding his spending pace at this stage of the 2008 contest as he expands his field operation and trades combative ads on the airwaves with Republican rival Mitt Romney.

..............

The Romney campaign has been on a winning streak when it comes to fundraising, besting Obama and Democrats for three straight months. Romney and his fundraising operation reported collecting $101 million in July, outgunning Obama and his allies by $25 million.


Since then, the Romney camp said it has raised $10.2 million online in the week after Romney's Aug. 11 announcement of Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate.


Overall, Romney has spent $165.3 million through his main campaign account since the beginning of last year, but he must wait until after he is formally nominated at next week's Republican National Convention in Tampa to draw on his substantial general-election funds.

Good post. Too bad he's too wrapped up in his twisted ideology to learn from this

This IS his ideology!

Spend other people's money like it's a bottomless pit and then stick someone else with the tab.

What an inept, incompetent, joke of a president. This has been his philosophy during his entire term. Hmmm....I wonder who he is going to ask to pay for the deficit? The "rich??"
