In an alternate reality, this would be Mitt Romney’s first web presence as President-Elect. He prepared a transition site in preparation for victory, and it was live for a brief period of time before it was clear he’d lost the election. Big ups to Taegan Goddard for grabbing screenshots before the site was toast. source

The Obama campaign narrows the focus on Romney’s taxes

  • 5 years tax return deal offered by Obama campaign to Romney source

» Concession and refusals: Obama campaign manager Jim Messina offered a suggestive deal to the Romney camp yesterday morning – release five years of Mitt’s tax returns, dating to 2007, and the campaign wouldn’t ask for more, nor would they (as Ann Romney suggested publicly) attack him for having released so few. This is illuminating; Obama doesn’t want to lose this line of attack on Romney, one of the most durable and resonant ones he has. For his campaign to offer this means they suspect that whatever Romney is worried about is present in those five years, even while he ran for President in 2008. Conversely, were Romney being honest, taking the deal would be a no-brainer, neutering a potent weakness and halting the clamor for more returns. Which shows just how sure both sides are that Romney can’t afford to put this information out there, no matter how bad he looks in the process.

Romney leapfrogs Obama (and then some) on fundraising front

  • $71 million the amount Obama raised in June — decent compared to previous months
  • $106 million the amount Romney raised in the same period source

» To put this in perspective, here’s what the fundraising situation was like in March. Regarding Obama’s fundraising total, his Chief Operating Officer, Ann Marie Habershaw put it like this: ”Bravo. That’s seriously impressive. Bad news? We still got beat. Handily.” This result could be a sign that Romney’s fundraising, which looked like it would struggle this year, may top Obama’s when everything is said and done.
