RNC, Romney outraise DNC, Obama again: Obama built that; media hardest hit



And Romney and the RNC outraised Team Obama yet again in July.

Romney for President, Romney Victory fund, RNC announce they raised over $101.3 million in July. Total of $185.9 million in cash on hand

Third month in a row Romney/RNC outraised Obama/DNC

How can this be? The media have been incessantly trying to tell us that Romney has had a totally gaffe-y month!

Twitter users provide some answers.

#failedstimulus RT @FixAaron: Romney outraised Obama $101.3 million to $75 million in July. http://t.co/r4hPje4D

Romney RNC Victory effort raise $101.3 MILLION in July. Republican enthusiasm really must be down.

Obama/DNC falls short for 3rd straight month – raises $75 million in July compared to $101 for RNC/Romney ….support waning

— Sean Spicer (@seanspicer) August 6, 2012

Oh my @gop & @MittRomney raise $101 million in July. HUGE month, taking it to the Dems!

One Twitter user kindly reminds Obama For America press secretary Ben LaBolt of a little foot-in-mouth remark.

From 6/7 MT @BenLaBolt Reminder on RNC/Romney fundraising: 1st month joint committee, so all their primary donors wrote their maxout checks.

Irony of @BenLaBolt's tweet: Romney/RNC have out raised Obama/DNC for 3 straight months

— Matt Sauvage (@mattsauvage) August 6, 2012


Romney camp: "…over 94 percent of all donations received last month were for $250 or less": http://t.co/yfQ88NeO

And, wrong again, Ben LaBolt!

BuzzFeed seems to be the hardest hit.

But Buzzfeed said Romney's last 40 days were bad! RT @jamiedupree OOM – Romney/RNC raise $101 million to $75 million for Obama/DNC in July

— Daniel Webb (@DWebbVA) August 6, 2012

Oh, snap! Still, BuzzFeed valiantly tries to further the false narrative with a new, lame angle.

Romney's campaign has been defined by fundraising. He'll find out soon whether it was worth the time. http://t.co/1AUIh6F2 by @buzzfeedben

Ben Smith even repeats the already disproved claim that Obama’s campaign was all about small-dollar donors. Why let pesky facts get in the way, when there is a desperate narrative to attempt?

Bless their hearts!

Here’s the real truth: The overwhelming response to Romney and the RNC? Obama built that. Thanks, champ! Mitt Romney tweeted something the other day that rings true.

Today's increase in the unemployment rate is a blow to struggling middle-class families. Americans deserve better and we can do better.

Clearly, citizens think so as well. And they are betting on Mitt Romney.
