Obama and DNC spending exceeded donations in July

By Jack Gillum

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama and the Democrats spent more than they brought in last month.

New data out Monday show much of the president's $49 million incampaign cash went to television ads and paying hundreds ofcampaign staffers.

Obama is facing an uphill challenge in fundraising as Republican rival Mitt Romney outraised the president's re-election effort for a third month in a row.

About $40 million in television ads are squaring off against millions more from both Romney and independent, "super" political groups working in his favor.

    Obozo apparently thinks the DNC has all of the “privileges” of the government and can just raise taxes to pay for its lavish spending.

    I just do not get it. This is old news, but the first time I have read any point on it. The point being that this is the very same way he handles our money. Duh.

    When Obama’s campaign and SuperPac and the DNC run out of money, he’ll recess-appoint (in the middle of speeches by Boehner and McConnell) Beverly Perdue as chairman of the Federal Elections Commission and proceed to suspend the election, making himself President-for-Life in the manner of such illustrious political mentors as Nasser, Kenyatta, Mugabe, and Duvalier.

    You’re not really shocked are you? I mean, it is what the King does.
