Obama Raises $13 Million for GOP in One Week!

President Obama has seen his own party run away from him in the midterm elections. Most are having trouble raising money and have even turned to former president Bill Clinton for help.

Now comes word that after attacking Carl Rove with the ridiculous and unsubstantiated claims of foreign money flowing into the US Chamber of Commerce and groups affiliated with Rove and Ed Gillespie, outraged businesses and citizens have given $13 million to these groups and they have shattered their goal of $50 million they were going to spend on behalf of Republicans and now have $65 million.

And yes, the money will be used to smear Democrats with a pack of truths.

But who expected the top Republican fundraiser would be Barack Obama?

The Hill reports:

The GOP-aligned American Crossroads said Wednesday it has raised over $13 million since coming under attack from President Obama.

The group and its campaign affiliate, Crossroads GPS, said it had easily surpassed its initial fundraising goal of $50 million to spend on behalf of Republicans, and has increased its target to $65 million, according to spokesman Jonathan Collegio.

The boffo numbers come after a week in which Obama led Democrats in attacks on the group, which is affiliated with GOP strategists Ed Gillespie and Karl Rove. Both are veterans of President George W. Bush’s White House.

Obama accused American Crossroads and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce of possibly receiving money from foreign donors and corporations to fund their electoral activities, a charge the groups deny.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
