Obama’s campaign manager Jim Messina sent an email Saturday that makes the Obama campaign seem like it is clinging to its last days in power.
In response to an email sent two days earlier titled, “The end?,” Messina wrote, “Hell no, it isn’t the end!”
“Our opponents want to close the book on the Obama White House and everything it represents — all that we’ve built together and all the progress we’ll continue to make together,” Messina said. “We can’t let that happen. Donate $5 or more now: …”
In the email that incited Messina’s response, President Obama wrote, “75 days from now, I’ll either be looking at another four years in the White House — or the end of this opportunity.”
President Barack Obama’s campaign has been outraised by Mitt Romney’s campaign and the Republican National Committee; Romney and Republicans have roughly a $60 million cash-on-hand advantage over Obama and Democrats. Polls in crucial swing states like Virginia and Midwestern states like Wisconsin that were once a part of Obama’s electoral baseline have been trending in Romney’s favor.
