More "Change" We Believed In

We recall someone during this election cycle pointing out again and again Obama's donor base being made up of tens of thousands of small donors.

Except it turns out not to be true.

Oh well, as Jack Kennedy said upon beating Richard Nixon: "We're here, and they're there."

I sense that Andrew Malcolm simply isnt a big fan of Obama. The sarcastic reference to the Republicans as the "great satan" was a dead give away. So like a good student, I did my research. I wasn't surprised at what I found. Here's the lead from one of my favorite Malcolm stories "Oops, Obama ad mocks McCain's inability to send e-mail. Trouble is, he can't due to tortured fingers" So his tortured fingers can use a Blackberry, but they can't send e-mail? My point?
Malcolm is a sore looser who will continue to look for ways to slam the president elect, even if he has to stretch the truth, or hammer away at petty issues to are insignificant. But then thats how Republicans loose elections, isn't it?

Gee, yet another myth (lie) perpetrated on the American people by the Obama camp and gleefully resung by the Lib Media without checking it out. Expect many more of these “myths” to surface.
His entire campaign was based on lies as will his presidency be, thanks to the corrupt Liberal Media willfully not doing their job. But Joe the Plumber’s back taxes and Sarah Palin’s clothes were “important issues”.
The article didn’t say how much he got from illegal foreign donors, relatives and his terrorist friends.

the email/blackberry thing in whole was one of the dumbest issues of this election. Being the president of the united states, how often are you emailing to begin with if you have a staff close to three digits doing everything from advising you on each issue to holding the toilet paper? (I censored myself there folks, I wanted to go further than 'holding' the toilet paper but figured my line would be zilched. I'll save the real line for the bar.)

Steve - I think you missed my point. My point was that Andrew Malcolm has an agenda. He will stretch the truth in an attempt to smear. A Michael Moore of the right. I wouldnt buy into his story without checking it out. So I just checked it out. Turns out that according to the report, 49% of Obamas contributions came in the form of $200 or less (Malcolm doest mention the 49% in his story), however many of the donors were repeat donors. If this non partisan oversight organization is just now sorting all of this out, should it surprise us if the Obama campaign is also just getting this information? Is it really an issue?

Yes this is really an issue you're trying to dismiss as insignificant, DDD.
