The bad news is, the polls are turning for the Obama campaign. The good news is that it isn’t Obama’s fault. Nothing that he has done, said or accomplished in his first term in any way contributed to the downfall he’s facing now. He’s being outspent and that’s definitely not the result of poor strategy (he’s running ads constantly in Illinois, where he’s handily winning, and even if he weren’t, it would only be because they had yet to marshal the dead voters back into line), it’s the result of supporters like you who obviously can’t understand the severity of the situation and are way behind on your donations.
So step it up, assholes, before you cost him the election.
Last week, when I was in Iowa, voters told me they were feeling it. The numbers back it up: Our side is getting outspent 2-to-1 on the air there.
But the folks asking me about this don’t want an explanation — they want to know what I’m going to do about it.
And the fact is that solving this problem is up to you ….
We’re losing this air war right now.
I don’t have as much time to campaign this time as I did in 2008, so this whole thing is riding on you making it happen.
He doesn’t have as much time to campaign this time around, America. Four years has not been enough time. He needs more. And he needs your money to make this thing happen. Are you listening, America? Because he’s calling you. And he needs you to answer. Or he’s going to find you and make the economy worse, apparently.
