Obama Asks Supporters: Can You Spare Another $10 To Spread The Wealth Around?

This is getting ridiculous. Obama has already raised a record $605 million in campaign donations, and now he has the audacity to hope each of his supporters will shell out another $10, as the LA Times blog reports:

Having hauled in a record $208,333 every hour of every day last month -- $150 million in all -- plus a few more unreported millions so far this month, Barack Obama is worried that he might come up short in the political money war with the John McCain-Sarah Palin ticket.

Just to relieve himself of that $150 million before the polls open, Obama will have to spend $12.5 million a day.
But he needs some more.

And, according to an e-mail plea to supporters, tonight's the absolute deadline to donate $10 more and receive your special edition Official Obama-Biden car magnet.

This is just a preview of the nickle-and-diming to come if Obama is elected president -- only the "change" (Obamaspeak for "increase") in Americans' tax bill will far more than merely nickles and dimes, or even ten-dollar bills.
Please note: The postings of "G. Morris", written by John K. Bush and which end in 2016, stated his views as of the dates of posting and should not be understood as current assertions of his views. The postings, which have not been altered since they came to an end, remain on this blog to preserve the historical record. In 2017, Mr. Bush took a position that precludes further public political comments or endorsements. He will no longer be contributing to this blog.
