Obama campaign sounds the alarm over Romney’s $100 million haul
President Barack Obama says he's not worried about Mitt Romney's prodigious fundraising. But his campaign sounded the alarm Friday about the Republican standard-bearer's eye-popping $100 million haul in June and warned Democrats to open their wallets—before it's too late.
"If we don't take this seriously now, we risk finding ourselves at a point where there is too much ground to make up," Obama campaign manager Jim Messina said in an email request for cash. Subject line: "URGENT."
"Romney and the Republicans announced yesterday that they brought in more than $100 million in June. For context, that's about what we raised in April and May combined," Messina wrote.
"We're still tallying our own numbers, but this means their gap is getting wider, and if it continues at this pace, it could cost us the election," he said, asking for immediate donations that he promised "can start reversing this trend in just a few hours."
Messina name-checked the Koch brothers, casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and Karl Rove—all boogeymen to liberals.

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
