Isn’t that just like a liberal?

October 23rd, 2008

No matter how much of your money they already have, cialis pharmacy they just need more:


Having hauled in a record $208,333 every hour of every day last month — $150 million in all — plus a few more unreported millions so far this month, Barack Obama is worried that he might come up short in the political money war with the John McCain-Sarah Palin ticket.

Just to relieve himself of that $150 million before the polls open, Obama will have to spend $12.5 million a day.

But he needs some more.

And, according to an e-mail plea to supporters, tonight’s the absolute deadline to donate $10 more and receive your special edition Official Obama-Biden car magnet.

Having now collected more than $605 million altogether, the freshman senator shows no concern over the appearance of buying the presidency. Imagine for a moment the national political conversation that could be going on now if rich Republicans had raked in that much loot for one campaign.

    Looks like he’s turning into the monetary equivalent of a crack addict. The first symptom should have been the original lie to limit campaign spending by using public financing.

    Let’s see the total spending when you count in the RNC versus the DNC. I’m willing to bet that the RNC has vastly outspent the DNC on the campaign which does help narrow the gap, though I’m still guessing Obama has spent more. He’s pushed forth a new way of fundraising – and it’s working.

    That last paragraph conveniently leaves out that that the $605 million is largely made of of small contributions from literally millions of Americans. Republican candidates would be more prone to getting thousands of dollars from far less candidates. And that’s the difference.

    Yah right. How many times did Soros donate $25 bucks using the name “Good Will”. Millions of Americans my ass. Its all a front for the uber-rich backers of Obama (yep – the D party is now the one of the rich) to get around the limitations.
