Wanna Buy a President?

It cost Barrack Obama $750-million dollars to win the Presidency in 2008 according to the New York Times.  Obama’s people don’t deny that – but say the paper’s prediction of $1-Billion for 2012 is inflated because he won’t run in primaries.

Of course O has been flying all over the country trying to sell his jobs bill but that doesn’t cost the campaign committee a cent.  Even though it looks like campaigning, it’s not. Why?  Because they say it’s not.  Guess who picks up the tab for those hundreds of millions? Thank you, American taxpayers.

The largest campaign contributors are corporations and unions.  Of course they don’t expect anything in return for their generosity – they’re contributing for the good of the country.  Right.

A lot of people don’t know it’s common practice for large contributors to give money to BOTH major parties.  They win no matter who loses.  And you lose no matter who wins.
