Obama the Poker King Champion

The Obama Campaign has just announced that they have raised
$150,000,000 +
in the month of September !!!

  • Over 632,000 new donors.
  • 3.1 million total donors.
  • More than $150 MILLION.
  • Average contribution for the month was under $100.
  • Average contribution for the entire campaign is around $86.
Obama's campaign has been set up for success since the beginning. They learned from past campaigns what NOT to do. If they had opted for Campaign Finance, they would have lost against the rich Republican Party, and their unethical Swift Boating 527s groups. This is a lesson that Obama learned from the Kerry Campaign.

They've been playing their game their way. His entire Campaign has been run and executed like a tight ship. For 20 months, Obama has been running a multi-million dollar operation. If his leadership during this campaign has been this freaking awesome - can you imagine what he could do with the Presidency???

By the way, according to this photo, we now have evidence of Obama's ability to use his Jedi mind tricks and levitate oranges. (just kidding)

From what the delusional redstate bloggers are saying - clearly Obama is buying the presidency and that all of the money comes from commies - seriously when will they get psychiatric help???

Also in other campaign news, since Michelle Bachmann spoke out on Hardball on Friday, Oct 17th on her "anti-American" McCarthy speech, her opponent Elwyn Tinklenburg (yes that's his name!) has reported raising nearly $500,000 in 24 hours! Moreover, it looks like Bachmann has a late challenger from her own party. Some Republican candidate just registered as a write-in on the MN-06 Ballot for her district, because he was embarrassed that this woman was representing the Republican Ticket!

The Democratic National Convention has reported raising $50 Million for the month of September.

This reminds me of the night that Sarah Palin made her snide and sarcastic speech at the Republican National Convention, Obama ended up raising $10 million just in one night, due to the many pissed off Democrats, like myself, who watched her hateful speech.

At least we know that Republicans are good for one thing, pissing off Democrats to the extent of contributing money to their opponent's campaign! I have never gotten over the swift-boating and smearing that they have done to John Kerry. Republicans have shown they will lie and fight dirty to win. They will divide this country into Patriots vs Commies (read Liberals), Red State vs Blue State, Christians vs heathens/baby killers (again read liberals). They can try to spread lies and fears about muslims and minorities, but it won't work.

Now McCain's Camp is having massive robo-calls spreading lies about Obama and ACORN, as well as spreading fear about Ayers/Terrorist connections.

This is having an effect on some lunatics out there, who are easily swayed by fear.
Police in Caledonia are investigating the assault of a campaign volunteer as she was canvassing for Senator Barack Obama Saturday afternoon. In an exclusive interview with 12 News, 58 year-old Nancy Takehara of Chicago says she was going door-to-door when she came across a disgruntled homeowner.

“The next thing I know he’s telling us we’re not his people, we’re probably with ACORN, and he started screaming and raving,” Takehara said. “He grabbed me by the back of the neck. I thought he was going to rip my hair out of my head. He was pounding on my head and screaming. The man terrified me.”

This election, Democrats refuse to let Republican tactics go unanswered, we want our country back. We want this to be for all of Americans - not just the top 1%. We want to change the reputation of America, and turn our backs on torture. We want our democracy to MEAN something, and not just empty gestures or flag pins.

Obama and his Campaign team has done this by campaigning on policy, never on smearing character like the Republicans like to do. They don't whine about the media and try to work the refs when the Media says or prints things that are not true - Rush Limbaugh, Ron Fournier of AP, everyone at Fox News in particular.

NOT ONCE has Obama ever questioned McCain's patriotism or his service to his country. McCain never wears a flag pin, yet no one would dare say - why isn't he wearing a flag pin? Obama gets accused of his lack of patriotism for not wearing a flag pin, EVEN WHEN he is wearing a flag pin. I was literally floored in the last debate, when some Republican surrogate was complaining about this, when Obama was clearly wearing one.

I am tired of elections being about small things, instead of the real issues at hand. I've never donated before in any election, but this time it's different. I can only leave this post with this great video of why Barack Obama's message resonates with so many people.
