Romney raises $76 million to Obama's $60 million
Mitt Romney outraised President Barack Obama in May, the first time the Republican presidential challenger has jumped ahead of Obama and his prodigious fundraising apparatus. The numbers illustrate how Romney and the Republican Party have jelled as a force after a protracted GOP primary.
Romney and his party raised more than $76 million last month, the campaign said Thursday. Obama's campaign reported that it and the Democratic Party raised $60 million for the month.

A sitting President who leads his country through difficult times and succeeds doesn't need to campaign for re-election.
People would automatically want to vote for such a great leader.
On the other hand, Obama needs to campaign as if he were running for the FIRST TIME, because not enough people have seen much of his great HOPE for CHANGE.

Would that you were right.
But right does not win elections in America. Money wins elections.
That is fact, again and again. MONEY.
What we really need is true campaign finance eform; yet the supreme court sells the USA out to corporate buyers of votes.

The empty suit has been running for reelection since he was innagerated. Of late, he has attened 150 money raisers.
He came with a blank slate, with no experience, and was elected because he was black. He will be fired for being Incompetent!
