Via White House Dossier, we get a copy of an email Barack Obama sent out to his increasingly nervous campaign supporters:
We’re closing the books on the first fundraising quarter of the 2012 race at midnight tomorrow.
They’re not wrong, but they are wrong about why.
We measure our success not in dollars but in people — in the number of everyday Americans who’ve chosen to give whatever they can afford because they know we’ve got more work to do.
Just another case of Obama changing the metrics of success in order to claim victory?
Too bad his campaign put forth loud and clear that they expected to raise a cool $1 billion for the re-election campaign, including shakedown money, fraudulent credit card transactions, and illegal overseas contributions. While the media likely will not report on any of the failings of the Obama campaign machine, a sharp drop in fundraising prowess will certainly embolden his adversaries.
Jeez...in retrospect, maybe it might not have been too smart for Barack Obama and the Democrats to alienate the entire Jewish community after all...
