    Better yet, Obama is still on his bus tour "promoting the jobs bill" on my dime. Even his wife calls it campaigning.

    It's not OK with me that Obama uses my money and that of others who don't support him for a second term.

    But he does.

    Irrespective of that, candidates can use campaign funds to pay for promotional items, and Cain did. There is no law that prohibits that.

    Seems that people get all pissy about money that they did not contribute, but being forced to pay for the campaign of someone we do not support is absolutely fine. Weird.

    Interesting snipped from the article:

    So, basically, they don't know why it's a bad thing... but it's a bad thing anyway. One sometimes wonders how these 'journalists' get through Journalism 101.

    Yup.

    I don't even know if journalism is covered in journalism schools any longer.

    I always smile when people use articles as some kind of absolute authority in a "it's in the media so it must be true" kind of way. Odd that.

    Thanks for proving it doesn't matter if Cain funnels campaign donations into his own pocket.

    He probably would run the country like a business: Funneling tax money to corporate America.

    Did he break the law or any campaign regulations?

    Not as far as you know.

    But we DO know that Obama is campaigning while conning The People.

    And that's OK with you.

    Whatryagonna do?

    Actually, YOU brought this up.

    There is NO evidence that Cain is doing anything illegal or against campaign laws.

    There IS evidence that Obama is.

    And, you complain about the one who is not breaking the rules?

    Own your hypocrisy, ravi. You'll feel better, I promise.
