President Obama’s reelection campaign has a new tactic: scaring donors. – Politico
IT’S NOT SCARING donors when you’re stating a fact.
“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,” Obama wrote to supporters. “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.”
The other issue is access of Super PACs to the news media, which decidedly favors Romney through Fox News coverage that promotes American Crossroads ads regularly. Since FNC is the most widely watched cable network that compounds the potential political injury through an onslaught.
