    can't believe anyone would donate a penny to the empty suit that resides on Pennsylvania Ave.

    Be careful what you wish for. These are facts, not opinions.

    Romney's $106M donations came from 571,000 donors. 21% of the total raised was from small donors, $250 or less. 80% of all donation dollars were given by 6 percent of the 571,000 total donors.

    Obama's $71M donations came from 706,000 donors. They have not yet released the further breakdown.

    Through May, 11% of Romney's donated dollars were from small donations, while 41% of Obama's were.

    You want a candidate that is solely owned and resposible to the 1%, you've got him.

    Can you imagine what Romney's donations could be in July after Obama announced his support for not extending the Bush cuts to the rich!

    The Tea Party likes to use the term "take to the streets" where average Americans voice their opinions about government.

    Lets go ahead and coin the term "take to your private jet, get your tax accountant team on the line, and get a wire transfer generated from your Cayman account now," for Mitt's call to action in July!

    President Mitt Romney, brought to you by..(whoever ends up his largest donor).

    "Apparently deficit spending completely permeates Obama's life" Counter Intelligence

    Really CI? Making a lame statement is one thing. Doing so based on false data is another...especially when facts are so readily available in a quick search.

    Obama's campaign as of June 21st, 2012 has raised > $255 million, and has spent just over $147 million, leaving them with over $109 Million in cash on hand.

    Noone with addition/subtraction skills and an internet connection could make a claim of deficit spending in the obama campaign...at least no one honest. We know you have an internet connection, so what's your explanation C.I.?

    Alot of money. With the criticizing of Romney, why is Obama taking this money? Must also be greedy, and out of touch.
