#rsrh GOP raises a remarkable 171 million to Democrats’ 181 million in September.

Via email comes this announcement of a nice little haul for the campaign:

Boston, MA – Today, Romney for President, Romney Victory, and the Republican National Committee announced fundraising totals of over $170.4 million in September. The campaign, RNC and state party participants have approximately $191 million cash on hand.

Not that you’d know if from ABC’s Emily Friedman, which inexplicably decided to simply report the 140 million that Mitt Romney raised on his own, then compare it to the total 181 million that Obama AND the Democrats raised in September.  Note that I am politely assuming (solely for the purposes of this discussion) that a significant portion of that money wasn’t illegally collected (this link might be of interest); even with that assumption, well. Ten million at this level gets Barry the win at the fundraising race, and not a darned thing otherwise.  It certainly won’t keep Romney from matching Obama buck for buck, for the rest of the campaign.  Which is something that the vaunted Obama for America campaign never contemplated happening, of course.

Also: D+9 race, my eye.

    What a nice haul, from AMERICANS. Plus, we can expect massive AMERICAN participation for Romney in GOTV efforts. Tomorrow night, Mitt can put this election away. It really is up to him at this point, and I’m betting he comes through. Off topic: I think Barry’s afternoon golf game today is in danger of being rained out in Williamsburg.

    Hey, Democrats! You ought to be weighting those polls D+30 … Everybody knows that Obama is a shoo-in, so you can just kick back and watch the triumph of The One without even bothering to vote on November 7. Trust me on this.

    I think the MSM doesn’t even buy their own BS anymore. They have been outed but can’t do anything but keep charging at this point.

    @Murgatroyd

    As the Democrat says, “I don’t know ANYONE who is voting for Romney”

    Right! So all those kinda-sorta-maybe-likely Democrat voters can just relax … They don’t need to vote, since the Lightworker is gonna win anyway. And besides, if it looks like the Evil Ronmey is gonna win, they can still go to the polls right up until they close at 10:00 p.m. on November 7. Right?
    nudge-nudge, wink-wink

    heh, yeah, I am sure there is a Lillith Fair they need to attend that night, and I am talking about the Democrat men.
