    money talks

    Obama raises 55 million dollars in the month of Feburary.

    20 M more than Hill.

    A TON more than McCain (not releasing numbers due to embarassment)

    90% from donations of 100$ or less.

    The Federal Election Commission on Thursday disclosed that national Democratic campaign committees were significantly out-raising their Republican counterparts for the first time since the commission started counting amounts raised by party committees.

    Whooppeee!!

    Higher Taxes!
    More Goverment programs!
    Open borders!

    There is no choice anyway.

    Obama and Clinton are effectively identical on the issues and McCain isn't far off (before his recent epiphany to woo the right)

    I dunno, Obama (and Hillary to a lesser extent) are raising and spending 3-5x as much as McCain and yet, they are only a couple of point up in the general election polls.

    Apparently money may talk, just not very well.

    Umm, just saying here that maybe, just MAYBE that is somewhat due to the fact that they are both still fighting for their political lives and McCain has been pretty much a shoe-in for a month or more.

    But don't let logic screw up your little 'everybody loves democrats' rant.

    Remember when you used to claim to be non-partisan on these boards?

    Ahhh fun times.

    Money always talks, don't give me that BS. If it was McCain, not Obama who raised 55 million dollars (in 30 days, 100 dollars at a time) you'd be singing a different tune.

    or maybe just maybe giving money to McCain is like flushing it down the toilet because the only way he has a fighting chance is if he's running against Hillary.

    it is what it is, want to know who's gonna win, just follow the money. people don't just give their money away to people with no shot.

    oh and I'm still proud to be independant, cannot vote in the dem primary in PA.

    What tune am I singing? I don't know why you hit me with such an agressive response.

    All I am saying is that with all the money they have been raising and spending, along with the obvious discontent for the current admin and the definitive lack of the republican base as of yet, the polls should be waaaay more decisive than they are.

    I don't doubt that a dem SHOULD win this election in a walk. However, it is interesting to see just how tight it is at this point.

    As soon as the result from the Democratic "steel cage death match" primary is in, the Democrats are going to start pointing out how McCain supports all of the policies of the current administration. And that should end Senator McCain's chances.

    I agree, Barack Rodham McCain will be the next President and the country will head down the crapper!

    No doubt. They also don't just give their money away to people without expecting anything in return.
