With $605 million already, Obama wants more

October 23, 2008 by News Bites

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.

Obama's team is so well-funded and well-organized it has spread its political web into one-time red states, forcing McCain to defend them with his measly $84.1 million in federal funds.

"The race is deadlocked in a number of crucial battleground states," (snip)

"We have to make our final, tough decisions about where to fight and how strong we can make our team. And those choices will depend on the financial resources we have."

What do politicians do with the leftover money?  Has Hillary's debt been retired?  Or, is money still due all the little people?

$605 million would heat a lot of homes, buy a lot of gas cards for the unemployed, give many American's some breathing room for the next utility bill that comes in the mail.

Not everyone makes over $250,000, not everyone lives the Trump lifestyle...make every dollar do the work of two or three dollars.

What will Obama do with the leftovers?

Answer:  possible "slush fund"


IMO, when you look at the two campaigns you see one Candidate with overwhelming MILLIONS; and, another running on a budget.

I think the race is closer than the polls show, and that means the McCain Camp is spending well, and within their budget; while the Obama Camp is tossing money around.

This should tell US who is better equipped in these terrible economic time.  When Obama gets to Washington, he'll continue to toss the money around . . .

while McCain will work on a budget, and within a budget . . .

FRUGALLY.
