Daily Caller -- President Barack Obama has become the first political $1 billion man.
He’s the first politician to take in that stratospheric number in donations during his political career, according to data collected by the Center for Responsive Politics.
His total take reached $1,017,892,305 in April, some nine years after he began his 2004 race for the Senate. Obama is widely expected to raise at least $300 million more before November.
President George W. Bush, in contrast, raised roughly $430 million despite running two complete presidential races and bearing the brunt of Democrats’ claims that he was a pawn of bankers, oil companies, coal magnates and defense contractors.
Bog author's comments - For someone who despises the vile capitalists and the evil 1% -- he sure knows how to work them. Since Obama assumed office, he has thrown our money at any problem he faced and also campaigned...non-stop.
No one should take this lightly because he is going to have the finest propaganda machine money can buy to bombard the airwaves. It still boggles the mind. How can so many Americans donate cash towards their own destruction? The U.S.A. is going down the toilet under Obama's watch and many seem as if this is the path they want to follow. If Obama does in fact win a second term America may be doomed.
