Obama Money Machine Ramps Up for Romney

With Rick Santorum's exit from the GOP race leaving Mitt Romney as the presumptive GOP nominee, the Barack Obama campaign machine has a figurehead to attack. It was less than a day before David Axelrod and company have

started sharpening their knives.

In a sign of the bitter fight ahead, Obama campaign manager Jim Messina went after Romney the day the race was joined: "The more the American people see of Mitt Romney, the less they like him and the less they trust him." The Obama campaign followed that on Wednesday with a video of some of Romney's most divisive or awkward moments during the Republican primaries, titled: "Mitt Romney: Memories to last a lifetime."

"I think people think about this as some kind of switch going off, but it really is more like a ramping up," Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod said as Romney's status as nominee was assured. "There's no big line of demarcation, because the arguments have been developing over a long period of time."

Heightened rhetoric surrounding the "Buffett Rule" is certainly a part of what the Obama campaign is trying to do to Romney. On the White House website, there's a tool to determine an average tax rate and compare it to Romney's rate. I won't link it here because it's so incredibly dishonest and misleading, but suffice to say that the Obama campaign is going into full class warfare mode against Mitt.

What the Obama campaign doesn't want you to know is that he's criscrossing the country raising massive amounts of money at insanely expensive dinners. Obama raised $2 million dollars at fundraisers on Tuesday alone and tonight is raising at least $1 million at a dinner that they sold tickets for $40,000 each at a fundraiser at the W Hotel in Washington, D.C., right across the street from the White House.

$40,000. Each. And Mitt Romney's the guy who's supposedly out-of-touch because he only hangs out with rich people?
