Hey, big spender

Oh, the evil of big money in politics:
In capturing the presidency, Obama, 47, became the first major-party nominee to reject federal funding for the general election. He spent $740.6 million . . .
McCain spent $227.7 million. . . .
Arizona Senator McCain, unlike Obama, accepted $84.1 million in public financing for the general election, a decision that barred him from raising money privately. Obama outspent him by a 4-to-1 margin from Sept. 1 through Nov. 24, FEC records show.
All the liberals who complained for years about the GOP's historical fund-raising advantage will now be silent.


  1. Yeah, they will! Be Quiet? ROFLMAO!
    All they'll say now is, "Well, it's about time we were able to outspend those silly right wingers"!

  2. You seem to apply logic and common sense to a purely emotional issue.
    When the GOP buries the Dems in fundraising, there will be howls of 'unfair' echoing off the walls.

  3. There will be no more talk of "campaign finance reform" for the next four years-unless the Republicans retake congress!
