"Obama accused President Bush of failing to do enough to help the Gulf Coast recover from the devastating storm of August 2005."

Dang, really? And here I thought Shrub did everything he could.

And how can you "loan" your own campaign money? I bet the taxpayers will end up paying her back.

Who the hell cares - I'm voting for him regardless.

A few elections ago he was participating in a debate, candidates where asked what they thought of the Vietnam war. Most of the candidates spouted predictable crap about loss of life and wasted youth of nations at war and so much crap I don't remember.

McCain said "What do I think personally about the Vietnam war? I think the wrong side won."

I've been waiting many years to give him my vote based on that one statement. :clapping:

edit: not that I agree with him - I just admire his brashness - all the other participants spouted out 10 times the words and didn't come close to saying half as much.

Barack is so dynamic, he increased the death count from 12 to 10,000!

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Barack Obama, caught up in the fervor of a campaign speech Tuesday, drastically overstated the Kansas tornadoes death toll, saying 10,000 had died.

The death toll was 12.

"In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died—an entire town destroyed," the Democratic presidential candidate said in a speech to 500 people packed into a sweltering Richmond art studio for a fundraiser.

Obama mentioned the disaster in Greensburg, Kan., in saying he had been told by the office of Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius that the state's National Guard had been depleted by its commitment to the Iraq War.

"Turns out that the National Guard in Kansas only had 40 percent of its equipment and they are having to slow down the recovery process in Kansas," Obama said, his shirt sleeves rolled up and his head glistening with sweat.

As the Illinois senator concluded his remarks a few minutes later, he appeared to realize his gaffe.

"There are going to be times when I get tired," he said. "There are going to be times when I get weary. There are going to be times when I make mistakes."

Obama spokesman Bill Burton said later that the senator meant to say "at least 10," instead of 10,000.

During his speech, Obama stirred the crowd as he often does by skewering President Bush over the unpopular war and noting that he opposed it from the outset.

"How could we have been involved in a war that never should have been authorized, that has already cost us half a trillion dollars," Obama said.

It was Obama's third visit to Virginia's capital in eight months. It came as national polls show him trailing rival Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., by double digits.

I'd say that statement shows either:

A fundamental lack of understanding of the the Vietnam war,

or,

a populist pandering to nationalist sentiment.

Not a good reason to vote for anyone, IMHO.

I'd love to take a look at some elite creative accounting.

To be able to throw 5mil at her ill-fated campaign!...

What the f does she ACTUALLY do for a living? How did this country allow that dick nose family to be pushed into the $50mil club?

"I loaned it from MY money", the rich bioch says on the radio... pfff

NEW ORLEANS - Democrat Barack Obama suggested Thursday that Hillary Rodham Clinton follow his lead and release her and her husband's income tax returns so the public can see where the $5 million she loaned her presidential campaign came from.

Din't Romney spend $40M of his own money on the campaign?
Just wait until Bloomberg enters the race with his war chest of $1 BILLION. Although it'll be nice to see what a campaign looks like when the candidate doesn't have to raise any money at all.

And he still loses.
