I just don't understand . . .


While I understand the of issues in this campaign, what I can't understand is how ANYONE,
has been able to raise $150,000,000.00 for his campaign during September alone.
People are loosing their houses, gas tanks haven't had their belly full for months and months due to high gas prices, people have lost jobs, the country is in economic crisis ...
AND YET ...
DESPITE THE STATE OF THE ECONOMY ...
Barack Obama raises $150,000,000.00 in a month - an excessive and historic amount.
HOW COULD DONATIONS HAVE LEGITIMATELY BEEN MADE WITH THE COUNTRY IN THIS CRISIS?
People have no money, spending is tight, businesses are closing, bills are unpaid, people are angry, and YET,
Barack Obama managed in one month to raise that whopping amount of $150,000,000.00!
McCain pledged to accept public funding in a general election, provided the Democratic nominee does the same. Barack agreed, but hasn't kept his word. Should McCain have said yes, then no?
Obama told "Joe the Plumber" that it was best to "spread the wealth around."
I guess he's staying true to THAT word as he "spreads the wealth" to his own gain.
. . . . . . . . . .
Maybe people should have paid their mortgages first, and filled up their gas tanks and their cupboards instead of making contributions. Maybe not so many wallets would be so tight.
. . . . . . . . . . .
I guess "political expediency" forgives a multitude of sins ... in his mind. Just think of how many people could be helped with this huge sum.

Ahem. I agree. I could have been one of those people helped with some of that money. My husband and I worked our BUTTS off in October and we have earned...get this....1/4 of what we need to pay our bills. I'm about ready to go apply for foodstamps again. I think at this point, we will qualify.

Amazing, isn't it? Well, go see if you qualify and enjoy them. You've earned them! You're an American and that's who they're for. I'll pray for you!
