How quickly Dems forget that Obama outspent McCain five to one four years ago.

No its an ironic point. He throws money away becase he can and we focus on what he has and now we are concerned about jobs. 2012 is the perfect time to have occupational indignation.



what about companies that laid off workers and then donated millions to campaigns or vice-versa?

is it illegal? what about companies that hired and gave? totally unethical if a company lays off a ton and gives the money away. but, thats up to that company unfortunately.

does each candidate get exactly the same amount of air time?

cap how much goes into campaigns period. look at all that money that was wasted that really could have been spent on a couple of states and the rest given to help the poor or vets or something much more constructive.

Turd you should have a look at small contributions as a percentage of funds for that 2008 election vs. large corporate donors. He outspent his opponent because of regular people contributing smaller amounts in greater numbers.

legal? who's talking about legal? I thought we were talking about the popularity of occupational indignance and subtly implying class warfare?

ok you lost me. i thought you were asking if a company lays off workers THEN gives money if it were bad or whatev.

im not talking class warfare at all. i gave the obligatory snarky answer that i knew would befuddle some because they do it so much they would then it gospel.

the cwg says what he did and i responded that oh now we are all up in arms about jobs.

then it spun into campaign finance etc with you and I.


hope that makes sense.

That's a nice fairy tale I'm sure you'd like to believe. Look up George Soros.

I take it you didn't look it up as he asked. 50% of his donations were under $200. 67% were under $1000.

Only 30% of Bush and Mccain's donations were under $200.
