Shock: Romney Fundraising Blows Past Obama

Obama's terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad week just got a little worse. This morning, the Obama campaign announced that it and the DNC had raised a whopping $60 million in May, outpacing their disappointing numbers in April. Hours later, though, the Romney campaign and RNC announced they had raised a staggering $76 million in May, blowing past Obama's haul.

Obama has been on a non-stop fundraising sprint, spending about a third of his time raising money. He even had the big, gala Clooney-polooza event in Hollywood. Yet Romney raised 25% more than him last month. As the Vice President would say, "that's a big f$%king deal."

Can you believe the two parties raised over $130 million in a month? Wow. Imagine if that money had been directed to improving roads, schools, etc. What do you suppose it's buying instead? Besides a compliant president that is.
