Thread: RNC Press Release

Polls are snapshots.
They are fun to watch but are wildly varying in accuracy. Didn't you learn that in the primaries?
Obama's campaign has raised almost $460 million so far, and almost half that has been raised by small donors contributing less than $200. RNC chief counsel Sean Cairncross today noted in a conference call that questions have arisen about those smaller donations, which by law the campaign is not required to disclose.
Newsweek reported over the weekend that FEC auditors have asked the Obama campaign about a number of contributors whose contributions seem to violate campaign laws, such as "Good Will" of Austin, Texas, who listed his occupation as "You" and his employer as "Loving" and gave more than $11,000 total in $10 and $25 increments. Another questionable donor, "Doodad Pro" of Nunda, N.Y., gave $17,130 in similarly small increments.
"The Obama campaign has a track record of accepting these," Cairncross said.
He also said that "the Obama campaign has accepted contributions from foreign nationals and has knowingly done so through at least its failure to reasonably investigate where all this money is coming from." The RNC will ask the FEC to audit these smaller donations
In June, a host of good government groups wrote to the McCain and Obama campaigns asking them to provide more details about their small donors. The McCain campaign agreed to do so, but the Obama campaign rejected the request.

What you just did, in short, is say there are no polls showing John McCain ahead and then diverted the discussion towards some random extremist article that thinks foriegners finance Obama's entire campaign.

Take this an run with it LibraryLady, remember you're on the case now! This is too important to screw up. Canvas the blogosphere, leave no stone unturned!!!
Yawn, another day another point in the national trackers for Obama. I'd much rather be in my position of confidence and control than yours of deperation.

If I had been bamboozled by a lying, crooked, socialist, I would be feeling desperation.
By the way, you still can't spell.

Hmmm...let's see...the laws/rules apply to everyone else except for Obama??? Gimme a break!! Obama is more crooked than Lombard Street in San Francisco and it's all going to come out.
As far as the polls, since someone changed the subject, they don't mean jack, especially the ones in this election.

More Bogus Obama Donors Surface
Donations Made Between July and Early August
CBS News has learned that two donors to the Obama campaign that gave a total of $7,722 appear to have made their contributions under fake names that look like they were written by a mouse running across a keyboard: Dahsudhu Hdusahfd of Df, Hawaii with the following employer CZXVC/ZXVZXV and Uadhshgu Hduadh listed as living in Dhff, Florida listed their employer as DASADA/SAFASF.
CBS News did not find any records of these last names, towns or employers anywhere else. Newsweek reported two questionable Obama donors over the weekend named “Doodad Pro” and “Good Will”.
Contributions from the two donors Hdusahfd and Hduadh were made on the same day starting on July 16, 2008. Federal Election Commission (FEC) records show the campaign began refunding the donations as early as August 6, 2008.
Despite numerous refunds from the Obama campaign, Hdusahfd still has a record of giving a total of $7500 to Obama which is well over the legal limit for the primary and general election of $4600. Hduadh gave $14,200 but the Obama campaign returned all but $222.00.
