Obama effort spends more in June than it takes in
San Jose Mercury News

Amid a heavy barrage of advertising by opposing « super » political groups, President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign spent more than it collected in June. While outraised again by Republican Mitt Romney, Obama ended the month with a hefty $97.5 million in the bank.

June was the second consecutive month in which Romney brought in more money than Obama, finance reports filed Friday show. Romney’s money advantage prompted Obama’s campaign advisers to warn earlier this month that the president could lose the election if the financial disparity continued.

Romney’s campaign nearly doubled its spending in June compared with the previous month, underscoring the close proximity of the November general election in which Republicans hope to unseat Obama and, in part, dismantle the president’s signature health care overhaul.

Obama tried to answer the super PACs supporting Romney by spending $38.2 million on television advertising. Romney spent less than a third of that—$10.4 million—on TV time.

Competing fiercely to keep the presidency, Obama reported more than $46 million in June and total spending of $58 million.

Obama est un vrai socialiste, comme président il a été incapable de gérer le pays sans faire de déficits, comme candidat il est incapable de gérer sa campagne sans faire de déficits.
