Obama re-election hits 1 million donors

Washington (CNN) – President Barack Obama's re-election campaign reached a self-proclaimed milestone Monday receiving financial contributions from 1 million grassroots donors.

To signal this achievement, "2012 One Million Strong" is the new slogan that appears on the official campaign website. Positioned below that is an interactive ticker that tracks the number of grassroots donations received so far this cycle.

The campaign sent an e-mail from the president to supporters earlier Monday in anticipation of this accomplishment saying, "When you give, you're not just becoming one of the first million to help fund this campaign - you're representing millions more across the country who are counting on us."

"We've always relied on each other, not Washington lobbyists or corporate interests, to build our campaign," the statement continued.

    The big lie, followed by a request for contributions: "We have always relied on each other, not Washington lobbyists, or corporate interests to build our campaigns". By far the largest contributions to Obama's 2007-08 campaign came from Wall Street and other corporations. It is easily provable, yet individuals here swallow the democrat campaign rhetoric and outright lies without either hesitating or looking at the facts. Amazing.

    In this 21st century of the educated, enlightened and technology savvy populace, RACISM simply doesn't 'cut the slack anymore' Racisn now belongs in the hallways of the archaic and backward-looking bigots of the 50s and 60s.

    Give it up...it just doesn't work anymore!
