    I don't get what the big deal is. This is campaign money, right? You don't get to stop eating, drinking, dressing and talking on the phone because you're trying to get elected - these things still need to be paid for. I think if people contribute money to an election campaign, they realize they are giving that money away to be used by the campaign however they need to use it. If it were taxpayer money, that would be a problem, but this just seems to be a non-issue.
    Nothing helps a bad mood like spreading it around.

    I pretty much agree. It is their money. However, spending it on clothes or expensive food doesn't seem like a great way to use it.

    And yet when Michelle Obama was supposedly wolfing down lobster in a fancy hotel it was?
    At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)

    Again, I don't see what the big deal is. I'm not expecting her to be eating scrapple sandwiches on Wonderbread and staying at Motel 6. It's a donation; if anyone has a problem with how it's spent, stop donating.

    I think it's easy to look at the campaign money for a politician who raises millions of dollars a month trying to get elected and find little things you may not agree with. I'll bet if you looked at every cent raised by McCain and Obama, you'd find a lot of money spent on junk like cigarettes, soda, magazines, etc.

    The way I see it, the candidates get to keep whatever money they don't spend at the end of the campaign (right?). Maybe if they had to donate the left over money to charity, I'd be angry to know that McCain spent $500 on silly string and pork rinds when he could have saved a few panda bears. As it stands, I'm really not bothered.

    Apparently there are quite a few members that disagree with your reasoning:

    Yeah, the Obamas REALLY care about the middle class.

    I'm Christian, not perfect. Something about liberals and their stupidity brings out the worst in me. Doesn't change the fact that people like LDP said and say NOTHING when Democrats are found to be doing stuff like this.

    Bottom line: it's campaign money, not tax dollars. People voluntarily gave this money to the candidates. Bitch all you want about it, there's nothing wrong with it.
