    Then I guess the only logical question to your answer would be, what are his connections?

    Many of those donations were don over the internet with prepaid credit cards. We have no idea who these people were and just how many people actually did this nor where they come from. This is a huge loophole in campaign donations and places Obama's campaign in question.

    It's legal which is more than I can definitely say about Palin's activities as Gov.

    Apples to oranges, and please tell me what she did which was illegal.

    What Barack is doing is legal, per se, but he did lie to McCain concerning donations, which is the reason why you see so many of his stupid commercials on TV, which contradict each other.

    250k, 200k, 150k, 42,750.......

    we do not know if those prepaid credit card donations are illegal as they are not traceable. How convenient.

    Do you believe that no one used a credit card to give to the McCain campaign?

    So are ya'll Politicians? Cause I feel like I just got the run around.

    I didn't ask Who the money came from. BUT I did ask "IF the world is in such a mess Financial speaking HOW did he raise that much money? Who has it to be giving away?

    Maybe if Obama was as concerned as he acts like he is. He should have used some of that money to pay on the DEBT he say's there is instead of doing more commercials and that stupid infomercial. If he is elected (And I hope and Pray he's not) I hope he learns how to not waste Money the way he did in his campaign.

    Even you can't be this dense!

    You said, "Many of those donations were don over the internet with prepaid credit cards. We have no idea who these people were and just how many people actually did this nor where they come from. This is a huge loophole in campaign donations and places Obama's campaign in question."


    I asked if you believed no one used a credit card to donate to McCain. You answered no. Surely you realize the ignorance of this answer, or do you actually believe that all of McCain's contributions were made by cash or check?

    As usual, things only seem to matter to you when you use them to attempt to smear or attack Obama.

    Nice attack. It doesn't matter if 100,000 people used credit cards. I am only talking about the prepaid credit cards that are untraceable. We cannot know where they came from. I could care less who supported McCain.

    It seems like your question seems to question the severity of the current recession based on a canidates ability to raise money for a campaign. The large amounts of money are likely coming from very wealthy individuals (like Warren Buffett) and corporations, Hollyweird, et. Most of that money (my guess) is not coming from "Joe the Plumber" types.

    Or illegally from out of country which we will never know since there was so many contributions made to the Obama campaign through pre-paid credit cards. Why so many of them?

    Sorry

    I understand, but your posting seemed to suggest otherwise. Maybe, after a long night of work, I misread your intentions. I do share your concern as to where Obama is getting much of his support, but with so many people contributing to his campaign, it would seem impossible to keep up with where it all came from. Besides, there is no real way to stop an individual or group from getting money where they want it. People find ways to skirt the law.
