    Yeah, well, I'm still voting for Magruder.


    Candidates raise money and much like unscrupulous real estate titans, there are several sets of books. The ones which they'll be showing are the ones which will work best for their publicity machine. (yeah, I sound bitter and jaded-well, maybe I am. Maybe I just am.)

    I am willing to wager that the Republicans have a boat-load of lawyers and forensic experts out there trying to figure out where all of this money is coming from. This man has suppousedly raised well over a hundred million dollars from individuals donors! Something aint right (this is coming from a guy who is going to vote for him!)

    Guessing there's hypocrisy in tow.

    If it was McCain raising the money I would see on this board, from all/most of you (and I'll bet a mortgage, NorCal style) that:

    "money is buying this election with a Republican warchest"

    but since it's B.Hussein Obama... it's a "sign of his popularity and success in raising money".

    I'll take that to the bank. Just remember how giddy you are, when/if in 2012 there is a Republican or independent candidate breaking the records set this year.

    :rolleyes:

    when McCain won the nomination, his campaign was in debt. He has never been a blockbuster fundraiser

    I believe its openscrets.org, but there are websites where you can look up the individual contributors. Obama has tons of them... 500,000 new ones last month, IIRC. If each of those donated only $200, thats $100,000,000.

    These current polls mean nothing, because they aren't polling the voters who will put Obama and Biden over the top as well as cleaning house in the Congress. Beware of the 'sleeping giant'!
