All screening restrictions on credit card donations have been removed by Obama.

Therefore, anyone, from anywhere in the world can ‘donate’ and the illegal donations from outside the USA borders are not caught.

He did the same thing in 2008.

2 brothers from GAZA were bragging about how much $$$ they bundled for Obama.

That is a true sea change from 2008, when we were just overspent like nuts. If we are close to even, it’s likely good enough to win.

I looked it up and sure enough, in 2008, Obama spent $740.6m on his campaign compared to McCain's $227.7m. That's just crazy! But it got worse. Between Sept. 1 and Election Day, McCain was outspend by Obama by a 4-1 margin. This was due mainly to fact that McCain took matching funds and thus was not allowed to raise money during the general election period.

I knew McCain was outspent but did not realize it was by that much!

Grammer fuzz...it is “AN HISTORIC” not “a historic”...numbnuts!

You're good to go if you drop the "h" in pronouncing "historic". Here's the rule:

So many of you asked whether "a historic" should have been "an historic" that I thought I'd better answer the question here, even though it was the topic of last week's Grammar Girl podcast and there was a link to it in the newsletter.

The choice between "a" and "an" is governed by the first sound of the next word. If it's a consonant sound, choose "a"; if it's a vowel sound, choose "an." Although there are regional variations, the standard American pronunciation of "historic" starts with a consonant sound (just like the words "hit," "hipster," and "highlighter"), so the correct choice is "a historic." There's nothing special about "historic" that exempts it from the standard rule.

His $181 million tally is BULLSH!T. This man can't fill half a stadium. He's begging people to gamble on having dinner with him. He's resorting to calling Romney a liar.. 0bama is a loser, desperate to hold on to power..

Someone better fess up as to whose credit cards are being tapped here. I have a strange feeling many of the names on these accounts are names we couldn't even pronounce let alone their country of origin. THIS SOURCE OF THESE DONATIONS MUST BE INVESTIGATED; THEY ARE FOREIGN SOURCES; ARABS AND SOROS' WORLDWIDE NWO NETWORK.

I’d like to see a list of how many 1% - 5%ers have given to Obama legally, and then how many communists likes Soros have illegally funded money through front organizations and cash donations.

Harvey Weinstein is a multimillionaire. So is Bill Maher, Michael (the marxist) Moore, Ben Afleck, Mr. Kaiser of Solyndra fraud, George Lucas, etc.

The same for the head of GM, who has been the beneficiary of hundreds of millions to billions of dollars of taxpayers’ money from Obama, and has given a helluva lot of it back in campaign donations to Obama and the Democrats.

Plus he out-sourced several hundred new jobs to Red China within the last year or so. I’m sure the Democrats are going to condemn him as a “Romney-like tax-evader”.

I just saw this posted on Twitter:

“Could be. Rumors are swirling about this and it could be coming next week, with the Washington Examiner reporting “more likely, Monday.” If Newsweek/Daily Beast break it, it will be shocking, because they have been heavily supportive of Obama. We’ll see.”

“2 brothers from GAZA were bragging about how much $$$ they bundled for Obama.”

And that would be (at least to me and I have a pretty good sense of politics) great material for a political ad.

Picture this...

Pictures of war-torn destitute countries flash across the screen - burning buildings, crowds torching the American flag, etc. - the announcer saying “Barak Obama has taken a lot of money (insert amount here) from non-US citizens - especially in countries that hate the United States. Since when should any foreign national have a say in in our Presidential race?”
