    The entire RNC can't raise the cash that Obama pulls in.

    Gotta love it.

    When Democrats outraise Democrats, Democratic supporters use it as evidence that they have the support of the people this year. When Republicans outraise Democrats, the same Democratic supporters will turn around and say, "See! I told you Republicans were the party of the rich".

    All while ignoring all of the rich Hollywood elites, billionaires, oil executives, etc. donating to the Dems.

    As a reminder, there hasn't been a nasty, hateful campaign between two republicans to deal with like the democrats are having to finance. Such a waste...

    How much of that money came from the oil industry, Haliburton, or govt. contractors that are profiteering in Iraq?
