While everyone is scrambling to count up how much cash Obama raised last quarter, Obama just keeps raising mountains of money.Today team Obama is going to raise over $5.3 million. 

Let’s repeat that: $5.3 million in a day. 

Obama will attend a fundraising party at the St. Regis Hotel tonight in Washington. Tickets to the party cost at least $35,800 per person. Right after that he heads out to the beautiful D.C. suburbs in Maryland for another party with a $35,800 per couple ticket. 

Michelle Obama is out fundraising in Beverly Hills ( $5,000 a seat). She’ll be on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno tonight. 

Joe Biden is heading to Texas, collecting funds at the Hilton in Fort Worth, and later from another 20 guests in Dekalb ($38,500 a ticket, again).

Think of this as the day that Obama fuelled up the jets for a giant air-campaign against Mitt Romney.
