    Time to crank up the machine and send in some more fuel! Obama is raising a lot of money from his union buddies and welfare cases so that has to be countered.

    The fat-cats own Romney and they own the US Supreme Court. It's a scary time for working people and time to get together behind President Obama.

    Doesn't matter how much they end up raising. Mendacious Mitt is despised even in his own party.
