$1, 000, 000, 000 Presidential Campaign

I heard a mention on the news here last night that the Presidential Campaign has just topped the $1 billion mark

Is that right????

I think this is the figure the entire campaign is expected to top.

An unfortunate side effect of our form of Democracy. The Obama campaign has been especially good at raising money.

Perhaps if Al Gore or John Kerry had raised more money and been more effective the world would be a better place. It ain't for the money.

Lets see, no war in Iraq so we'd be about a trillion dollars ahead. Hopefully no embrasure of deregulation to the point of economic collapse. No loss of US stature in the world. No nuclear weapons in Iran. No massive deficit spending. I could go on.

And since you throw these points out you might as well explain why you stated them.

Some of them would have happened no matter what influence the US would have had or what action the US would have taken. Just more absurd statements..

Re: $1, 000, 000, 000 Presidential Campaign

Wait, you really thing that Gore would have made up a bunch of phoney intelligence and attacked Iraq? And Bush did tout a "culture of ownership". Bush labeled Iran part of the axis of evil and invaded their neighbor; gee I wonder why they were so hot for nuclear weapons? Bush will go down in history as one of worst presidents in US history; and if you still like him then you'll be really lonely, even in Pennsylvania.

I never said I like him. You are making assumptions.

However, again, you neglect what really happened and imagine what could have happened. There is no way to ever find out.

I guess you expect a presidential candidate not to raise money and not spend the money they do raise???

Im sure that if McCain could raise that amount of money he would be more than happy to spend it.

Also I dont know your financial status and won't pretend to, but if you make under 250k you will be getting a tax cut. He will raise money to pay for the debt or country is in by getting rid of the current loop holes in the system that coporations use to get out of paying taxes. If you think its better for Exxon to get a 4 billion tax break after making over 15 billion in profit in the first quarter, than for 90% of America to get a tax break and for large corporations to pay more I would beg to differ.
