Well stated! I couldn't agree more!

But, leave it to the left leaning media to try to insert the word "Democratic" into this decidedly Republican event in any way they possibly can!

Obama's ads are helping.........lower his personal approval from 61% to now a new low of 38%. Obama's and the liberals campaign of sleeze is coming back in the back door and biting them on the butt.

It is very telling that Obama's spending is now surpassing his campaign revenue, dispite having 250 fund raisers and credit and debit cards Obsma refuses to disclose their source or amounts.

It is also telling that Obama dispite having the MSM and Media Matters continually carry water for him shows Obama's need to run on everything except his record. It is noted that not only is Obama having trouble defining his campaign, but he is having equal issues defining the Romney campaign without using outdated material or outright lies.

Deficits Follow: Obama campaign's spending outpaces its fundraising


By Fredreka Schouten and Christopher Schnaars,
USA TODAY

WASHINGTON – As Election Day approaches, President Obama is burning through campaign money faster than he can collect it — exceeding his spending pace at this stage of the 2008 contest.

Last month alone, Obama spent nearly $59 million through his main campaign account —$10 million more than he raised, financial reports filed late Monday afternoon show. The cost of his campaign so far: more than $325 million, not counting spending by the the Democratic Party committees aiding his re-election.

By contrast, President Bush had spent $205.4 million to retain the White House at this point in the 2004 election. The claim that Money is part of the problem in campaigns rears its ugly head as Obama's spending appears to point this out in vivid detail.

The Democratic National Committee also stepped up its spending on the president's behalf last month, burning through $32 million — more than double what the national party spent a month earlier, as it undertook fresh rounds of polling and advertising to help Obama. The president's new investments included additional staffers. He employed 853 people in July, up from 779 a month earlier, a USA TODAY analysis shows.

The Romney campaign has been on a winning streak when it comes to fundraising, besting Obama and Democrats for three straight months. Romney and his fundraising operation reported collecting $101 million in July, outgunning Obama and his allies by $25 million.

Since then, the Romney camp said it has raised $10.2 million online in the week after Romney's Aug. 11 announcement of Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate.

Two labor unions donated heavily last month to a super PAC working to help Democrats gain seats in the U.S. House. The House Majority PAC took in more than $760,000 in July. The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers was the largest donor, emerged as the biggest donor to the group, giving $350,000. The International Association of Firefighters gave $250,000.

In USA TODAY/Gallup Poll nationwide and in the 12 top battleground states, most voters say the situation for them and their families hasn't improved over the past four years, the first time that has happened since Ronald Reagan famously posed the question in his debate with President Carter in 1980 — a contest Carter lost.

Yes - we are fully aware that the GOPTEA RINOs and the 1% are doing all they can to tank the economy just to win an election.

By November here is what the American people will remember after the G-roup O-f P-olitical T-erroristic E-uropean A-merican birthers took over the house.

1) They shifted focus from jobs and the economy to defending DOMA, looking for birth certificates, and whining about teleprompters.

2) They almost pushed us into a government shutdown.

3) They pushed us into a credit downgrade.

4) They fought to kill medicare and medicaid.

5) They held our payroll tax cuts hostage for a pipeline.

6) The Republican Death Panel are fighting hard to take away healthcare for the working middle class.

7) But they sure fought vehemently for those top 1% wealthy people.

All at the expense of the economy and the middle and working class. The people who will be most hurt by GOPTEA obstructionism are the working middle class. The rich 1% would hardly notice a dent. Which is why Rich Money and Boehnor could care less.

It's time to fire Speaker Downgrade Boehner and the RINO he rode in on!

Mormon Rich Money and Paul Ryan's "solution" is MORE tax cuts for the 1%. So let's see what the 1% has done with their tax savings for the past 12 years:

Why won’t the ex-governor Mormon Rich Money release his tax returns?

Is it because it will reveal he paid no taxes? Possibly or possibly not, but it’s a little more devious than that.

We may find out that during the recession when he was given the Bush era tax cuts to reinvest in the economy and grow it, he instead shipped those savings into offshore accounts while the economy shrank and the country suffered.

The purpose? Maybe to set up trust funds for his children and grandchildren and earn interest. To guarantee his clan future wealth. Definitely a smart thing to do.

BUT it hardly supports the purpose of the Bush tax cuts which were given to encourage the 1% so-called “job creators” to go out and reinvest their savings into the American people so that the wealth could “trickle down”.

What really ended up happening? The wealth remained trapped in the 1% and shipped overseas to guarantee the survival of their future generations, while the rest of us hard working American middle class were forced to suffer during the recession.

Why won’t the ex-governor Mormon Rich Money release his tax returns? It would reveal why he fights hard for the 1%.

Is it too late for the GOP to nominate a conservative for the Republican nominee instead of the RINO Mormon Rich Money? Surprisingly, no! The Republican party actually has an opportunity to return to its conservative roots.

==========
From the examiner:

RNC confirms Ron Paul will be up for nomination

The Republican National Convention is quickly approaching (August 26th). For over the past year, avid Ron Paul supporters have won delegate spots in various state conventions across the country. Through this hard-work, Ron Paul will officially be allowed to be nominated for the nominee of the Republican Party.

For the past three days, Ben Swann (Fox19 Cincinnati) has been in contact with a Republican Rules Committee member. In order for a candidate to be elected for the Republican Party nomination, the candidate must have a plurality in five or more states. If by rule, binding and non-binding policies are applied to delegates, it would still not affect the process of voting for placement of a candidate's name into the potential nominee ballot. Presidential hopeful Ron Paul does have a plurality in five or more states (Nevada, Maine, Minnesota, Louisiana, and Iowa). This means that Ron Paul will be eligible for nomination on August 26th in Tampa Bay.

The president's vulnerabilities on the economy have opened the door to a re-election rebuke, analysts of all stripes agree. In the poll and follow-up interviews, voters say they have lost much of their faith that Obama can fix the economy.

Mormon Rich Money is the father of government healthcare and the individual mandate. He raised fees on small businesses in Massachusetts.

Paul Ryan voted for TARP and the auto bailout.

Both want to cut taxes even more for the "job creators" all the while they are whining that they failed to do their job during the Bush tax cuts.

Is it too late to nominate a TRUE conservative? Is it too late to nominate Ron Paul? NOPE! Poor Republican RINO nutters. There's still a chance for a true conservative to win the nomination.

Greg Miller, 54, of Sugarcreek, Ohio, said he plans to vote for Romney. He wants to hear more about the former Massachusetts governor's specific solutions.

"We country bumpkins feel like we're facing a lot of issues that don't come up," Miller said. "The lack of jobs is a pretty harsh thing. We somehow don't have an economy that is very confident. I feel like we have lost our confidence and trust not only in our political system but also in our financial system."
