That is right. Billion with a B. That is a lot money. Should elections cost this much? With the current ecomonic crisis is it wise to spend this much on an election? Should we just have three or four debates and have websites for people to check out the candidates and leave it at that. Is alot of the commericals, robo calls, and infomericals a waste of money? It think it would save moeny and cut down on all the propaganda. What do you think?

Yeah he may have, but how much of it came from illegal sources such as his illegal immigrant aunt? He should be kicked out of the campaign, and should lose his job as Senator.

Last I heard they have about $250 million that the Obama campaign doesn't really know where it came from... There should be greater accountability and a limitation as to through which means people can donate. Apparently there are ways to make multiple donations using fake names. Well, he knows how to work the system to his benefit. I sure hope he doesn't take it too far.

of course nothing is going to happen to him over it. I wonder how much of that unaccounted for amount came from muslim groups or that racist church Obama attends? The fact that he knew his aunt was in this country illegally and did not turn her in, and also the fact that he accepted campaign donations from her makes him a criminal. Do we really want this man in the white house? Who know what else he is involved in???
