Washington Post: President Obama raised $53 million last month for his reelection, a substantial increase from the month before.

In February, Obama raised $45 million from 348,000 donors. This month he upped his total by $8 million, and increased his donor pool to 567,000.

…. Ninety-seven percent of donations to Obama’s re-election effort were for $250 or less, the Obama campaign said. The average contribution was $50.78.

As of mid-March the president’s campaign had close to $85 million in cash on hand, according to FEC filings.

Buzzfeed: Former Governor Mitt Romney is already offering top donors access to a special “Presidential Inaugural retreat,” planned on the assumption that he will be elected president this November.

The offer, in a fundraising email circulated by a top Georgia supporter to fellow Republicans and obtained by BuzzFeed, is one of several goodies offered to those who contribute more than $50,000 to the joint fundraising committee known as “Romney Victory”….

Those donors will be named “Founding Members” of Romney Victory and invited to a California retreat with Romney and offered “yet to be determined access at the Republican National Convention in Tampa in August.”

They will also “have preferred status at the first Presidential Inaugural retreat,” the email says.

where’s the birth certificate?!

Foreign person?

Business Insider: What goes around comes around. After spending the last week casting doubt on the nature of Obama’s birth certificate Donald Trump may have some birther issues of his own. Turns out the birth certificate he ‘released exclusively’ to Newsmax earlier this week is not the actual thing.

Ben Smith at Politico reports that what Trump provided was a hospital “‘certificate of birth’ meaning the piece of paper the hospital gave to his family saying he was born. Such a document typically has the signature of the hospital administrator and the attending physician.”

Apparently an actual birth certificate would would have the Dept. of Health’s seal as well a signature of the city registrar. Oops.

Take it away Ben Smith:

Trump’s mother, it should be noted, was born in Scotland, which is not part of the United States. His plane is registered in the Bahamas, also a foreign country. This fact pattern — along with the wave of new questions surrounding what he claims is a birth certificate — raises serious doubts about his eligibility to serve as President of the United States.

:lol:

Slate: “… Trump can obviously clear this up if he provides everything Barack Obama’s provided to the press, and everything he’s demanded from Obama. This would be:

- Two (or more) contemporary newspaper announcements confirming that Donald Trump was born in the United States. (Two of these exist for Barack Obama.) eg

- A certification of live birth produced by the state Trump was born, verified by hand by reporters. (FactCheck.org verified Obama’s certification in 2008.)

- A picture of the young Donald Trump and or/interviews with people who knew him. (Something like this:

…..interviews here)

Hey, I didn’t dig this rabbit hole. Trump decided to jump down it.”

Hachikō wonders if Chump’s birth certificate is “under that thing on his head”. If it is, he’ll have trouble releasing it in to the wild.
