Romney and Ryan, living rent-free in Obama’s head.
This is funny. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan had massive crowds turn out to hear them speak in swing states ever since Saturday morning when Romney announced Ryan was his pick for the VP slot. The Republican base is fired up and ready to go. Not only are they turning out for these big events, they’re also opening up their wallets big time. It was estimated that 15,000 people showed up to see them in North Carolina and another 10,000 in Wisconsin! Not to mention the pollsshowing a nice bounce for the Romney campaign, especially among independent voters.
Now Team O is in full panic mode.
The recent frantic email theme to supporters from Team Obama about Mitt Romney’s run-away fundraising successes has been expanded to the crowd size gap between the thousands who rushed out over the weekend to see Romney and new running mate Rep. Paul Ryan and the hundreds who cheered on President Obama.
The big worry expressed in a new email from Obama’s Chicago HQ: “The Republican base is energized.” The reason: Romney attracted 15,000 at a rally over the weekend.
The email: …
Go read the whole thing. They’re asking for $3 to help turn things around. That’s right, if enough of you just fork over three little dollars they’ll be able to rally their base and find more than 600 people to show up to see Vice President Joe Biden in North Carolina.
No wonder Debbie Wasserman Schultz has been on a such a dishonest tear, and Obama is sounding like a fact-challenged carnival barker.
