Barack's Thinning Money Tree

From the International Herald Tribune:

“At a convention-week meeting in Denver of the campaign’s top fund-raisers, buttons with the image of a money tree were distributed to those who had already contributed the maximum $2,300 to the general election, a subtle reminder to those who had failed to ante up.

The signs of concern have become evident in recent weeks as early fund-raising totals have suggested that Obama’s decision to bypass public financing may not necessarily afford him the commanding financing advantage over Senator John McCain that many had originally predicted.”

Couple that with some major spending and what do you get…? A campaign budget with funds dipping about as fast as his recent poll numbers.
