Wasn't it the Senator Barack Hussein Obama campaign who OUT SPENT BY A TWO TO ONE margin Senator John McCain to buy the Oval Office.
Yes, Obama did out spend M/P. I do think we knew where the money came from and who gave what and how much. Now there are no limits so people like Sheldon Adelson who now, thanks to the Citizens United case is allowed to give unlimited funds to the so-called non-profit groups (501c3's) and orchestrate elections across the country to suit his goals.
This is different than collecting money from small donors. Sure, Obama also got large sums from different groups in the '08 campaign but even those were limited or capped, weren't they?
Some of the R's money might even be coming from foreign sources, Obama's too for that matter. The problem is we just don't know anymore and that's not a good way to run a campaign.
Sheldon Adelson, the multi-billionaire casino mogul who already spent at least $5 million to help keep Republicans in control of the House next year, reportedly pledged $500,000 to just one House candidate, New Jersey Republican candidate Rabbi Shmuley Boteach.
Rabbi Boteach, for his part, lavished praise on Adelson and on the Supreme Court that's been so solicitous of right-wing efforts to buy and sell elections: "I think that Sheldon Adelson will bring democracy to the ninth district of New Jersey. What Citizens United has allowed is a challenger like me to be a real contender against [Rep. Bill] Pascrell."
You're joking right? We THINK we know where the money for Senator Barack Hussein Obama came from? He had huge donors and accepted contributions from overseas on his web site. All the other candidates had turned on a system that would not allow contributions from other countries because they were not legal, not Senator Obama.

You need to get your own house in order!
What groups is your good friend and far left convicted felon George Soros supporting?
[/quote]So you're good with all the super pac money flowing into the campaign from both sides? It doesn't bother you that it doesn't need to be identified as to the source? Don't you want to know who is paying for the ads you watch?
