In a phone call from Air Force One, the President reportedly told a group of top donors "I can't do this by myself" and urged them to open their cheque books to "meet or exceed what you did in 2008".
Noting that most had "maxed out to my campaign last time," Mr Obama told them: "I really need you to do the same this time," according to a leaked transcript.
Despite holding a narrow lead over his rival, the president informed the supporters that his ability to campaign and broadcast advertisements in key battleground states such as Florida and Ohio directly depended on their generosity.
Details of the call emerged days after Mr Obama warned supporters that he would be "the first president in modern history to be outspent" by his opponent unless donors upped their contributions....
.... An Obama campaign official confirmed the veracity of the recording ... describing the meeting as a “routine finance call.” (Obama uses a non-taxpayer-funded phone for political calls from the plane, the official said.)
I don't know about you, but with nearly $57 TRILLION in total U.S.debt hanging over our heads, and all those ObamaCare taxes (and or penalties) looming, I really don't care so much about the phone bill.
