Obama Raises $86 million for Re-election Bid, What it Means, Nothing

Money Will Not Be a Limiting Factor in the 2012 Election

Relative to the Republican candidates, the President raised a huge amount of money in the 2nd quarter of 2011 to support his 2012 re-election run.  The sum of $86 million was more than all of the other Republicans combined.  Because political writers have to write about something, (leaving several inches of blank space does not attract readers) this is heralded as news, when in fact it is rather meaningless.

The 2012 Presidential race will feature well over $1 billion spent by each candidate either directly or on their behalf.  In fact, no candidate on the Republican side for any office higher than Assistant City Treasurer of East Rockford, NM will want for lack of funding.  Unlimited campaign finance is just about here, and will be here as soon as the Supreme Court can dispose of what little limitations remain.

Mothers, don’t let your children grow up to be cowboys, let’em be campaign consultants instead.

Hey, that has a nice beat and  you can dance to it.
