President Barack Obama, buoyed by small-dollar donors and high-tech industry employees, raised more money last month than Republican challenger Mitt Romney, who was boosted by Wall Street contributors.Obama’s campaign entered the general election race with $88.8 million in cash, compared to $50.4 million for Romney coming out of the Republican National Convention. The president raised $84.8 million in August, while Romney raised $66.6 million and borrowed an additional $20 million secured by general-election campaign donations -- most already in the bank -- to pay expenditures until he officially became his party’s nominee at the convention.In total, Obama has raised a total of $441.3 million for his re-election to $283.6 million for Romney, who used some of his cash to pay bonuses to his top aides. The figures are based on disclosures filed yesterday with the Federal Election Commission.When national political parties and allied super-political action committees are included, though, Romney entered September with more cash to spend on his side than Obama, $165 million to $101 million.The Republican National Committee overcame Romney’s campaign fundraising deficit, bringing in $35.6 million last month and entering September with $76.6 million in the bank. The Democratic National Committee raised just $5.6 million and reported taking an $8 million loan, finishing the month with $7.1 million in cash....

    We need to get rid of almost every incumbent running for office this year. Eliminate the FED, close our borders and put every illegal out of the country and a mandatory sentence of 10 years hard labor for those caught twice. It is time to stop fooling around with them.

    Just about; all that voted without read that O-Care bill, but do we count? The we is a minority or maybe someone will just jump up there and grow some hair on them testies, whether it be a male or a female, just the woman side of this thing, they want a leader that is not afraid to die being right! Geraldine was kick out of her Left field position due to her comments... The Liberals are such mean folks...Almost as mean as those that are on the Right and are quiet on their evil work! Where are the righteous few, the ones that play by the rules, ah; what rules, eh? http://www.youtube.com/watch?...

    I have no idea where they are at. But most of Congress voted to extend The Patriot Act knowing that it had been abused then turned around and voted for NDAA. These people need to go. Our government no longer looks out for the people and I am not sure that we do not need to remove every last one of them.

    All of them should come under the same tax laws and in fact all members of the SENATE and HOR should do a short form, 50% off the top and then that should fix the crooks...
