Obama breaks $40 million for March

Yet another success of lowered expectations, and well-concealed numbers, as Obama announces his fundraising numbers for March.

The campaign says he raised more than $40 million from more than 442,000 donors, more than 218,000 of whom were giving for the first time. It’s a well Obama’s barely begun to tap.

More Than 442,000 Donors Help Obama Raise Over $40 Million in March

CHICAGO, IL—Senator Barack Obama’s campaign announced today that more than 442,000 contributors across the country gave more than $40 million in March. More than 218,000 donors contributed to the campaign for the first time, and the average contribution level was $96.

“Senator Obama has always said that this campaign would rise or fall on the willingness of the American people to become partners in an effort to change our politics and start a new chapter in our history,” campaign manager David Plouffe said. “Today we’re seeing the American people’s extraordinary desire to change Washington, as tens of thousands of new contributors joined the more than a million Americans who have already taken ownership of this campaign for change. Many of our contributors are volunteering for the campaign, making our campaign the largest grassroots army in recent political history.”

Methinks the Obama campaign had a little fun this week.



They pulled the rope-a-dope.

By dropping their supposed number first ($30 million)…because they’ve figured out that the MSM NEVER EVER challenges Clinton on the non-veracity of her numbers, even after the lies have been revealed..

The Clintons had to drop a lie quickly -to keep up with the Obama campaign -that they could plausibly ‘prove’ if challenged about their ‘creative math’, but couldn’t be too outrageous.

After they cornered Clinton into a number that doesn’t remotely come close to their reality…

The Obama campaign dropped their REAL numbers, which, considering everyone will agree this was his worse month ever….will make the numbers even more impressive.



NOTE:Obama has raised over $230 million from individual contributors so far — which is already more than Kerry raised in the entire 2004 campaign!!
