Email received today, unbelievable. They outspend McCain by hundreds of millions, then beg and plead because they will get outspent the last few days..

Friend --

I'm the Chief Financial Officer for Barack Obama's campaign. I track the donations coming in and the expenses going out.

I asked for the opportunity to write to you directly so that I could try to explain what's happening right now.

This weekend the McCain campaign said they would outspend us by $10 million in the final days. This is on top of recent news that, as of October 15th, our opponents had $20 million more in the bank than our campaign and the DNC combined.

We knew the McCain campaign was saving its resources for a last-minute blitz, and now we know just how much they'll pour into it.

No matter what, we need to match what our opponents are spending in the final stretch. We can't slow down between now and Election Day.

So they knew that McCain was saving money for a last minute "blitz" but they didnt save any money to counter? How could McCain have $20M more then Obama and the DNC combined considering they brought in over $650M so far? Unbelievable..

The GOP always has a lot of money to spend; the DNC doesn't.

Did it have a link to a specific Obama donation site? If not, it's most likely fake.

The email says that McCain has more money, says nothing about the GOP. McCain had $87M total, Obama had $650M and counting, and McCain has more in the bank then Obama? Please...

It seems others are getting the same emails, asking for different amounts, and having the same reaction I did

I just got an email from the Obama/Biden campaign's CFO that says the RNC and pukes - Democratic Underground

Yep and Obama will spend your tax dollars willy nilly then run back and ask you for more money.
I'd like to know what bank he uses that allows credit cards to be processed online without an Address Verification System?

Black Americans are starting to complain about Obama's mismanagement of campaign funds.
