Obama Campaign Email Whines: 'I Will Be Outspent'

I’m taking this latest missive from the Obama campaign as a cry for help. Which I’ll laugh at, and otherwise hope the help never comes.

Friend —

I will be the first president in modern history to be outspent in his re-election campaign, if things continue as they have so far.

You should’ve thought of that before you started attacking the states and whole industries one by one.

I’m not just talking about the super PACs and anonymous outside groups — I’m talking about the Romney campaign itself. Those outside groups just add even more to the underlying problem.

There’s an admission that Mitt’s a better manager than Obama is. That was already obvious, but it’s good of Obama to admit it.

The Romney campaign raises more than we do, and the math isn’t hard to understand: Through the primaries, we raised almost three-quarters of our money from donors giving less than $1,000, while Mitt Romney’s campaign raised more than three-quarters of its money from individuals giving $1,000 or more.

Here’s more math that’s not hard to understand: Obama is now spending more than his campaign is taking in. Sort of like how he’s running the country.

And, again, that’s not including the massive outside spending by super PACs and front groups funneling up to an additional billion dollars into ads trashing me, you, and everything we believe in.

We can be outspent and still win — but we can’t be outspent 10 to 1 and still win.

Soros doesn’t have your back anymore? Riiiiight.

More than 2.2 million Americans have already chipped in for us, and I’m so grateful for it. As we face this week’s fundraising deadline, please donate $3 or more today.

Every donation you make today automatically enters you to join Michelle and me for one of the last grassroots dinners of this campaign — today is your last chance to get your name in.

Can I bring Rush and Levin? How about Andy McCarthy or Christian Adams?

These dinners represent how we do things differently. My opponent spent this past weekend at a secretive retreat for the biggest donors to both his campaign and the super PACs that support him.

I’ve got other responsibilities I’m attending to.

Such as…?

Donate today to stand for our kind of politics:

So much for Billion Dollar Barry.
