    How about we start this off with a fitting song:

    I like the excuses made for this drop, they bring forth a good laugh. Contributions to Obama and the Democratic National Committee combined were down 30 percent last month compared with January four years ago. Together they raised $29.1 million in January. That is down from $41.7 million in January 2008. Throw that in with how even though Mitt Romney has not even won the Republican nomination, and he is leading Obama by 4 points in Gallup, things are not looking good for the DNC or Obama.

    The race hasn't started for one.

    The other is that Republicans feel big business should run the country. 8 of the 10 largest donors are corporations and they all give to Republicans. Big corporations know that with Republican help, they can rape the average American and the Republican base loves it. They can dirty the air and foul the water. Create more birth defects and hire Republican workers at minimum wage without health care. This is what Republican fight for. What they want. This is why business supports Republicans.

    Be careful what you wish for. You might get it.

    Lots of lied to Obama supporters are now in the Paul camp. If anything pushes him at any position as nominee,VP,or any other position,itll knock obama off his pedastal. Lots of those young voters are paulies now.

    Business-capitalism
    government-socialism

    I opt for a free unrestricted capitalist democracy for the people,by the people,of the people. Not a nanny state exploiting dividing and conquering to control.

    in january 2008, he was in the midst of a primary campaign against hillary. people had a sense of immediacy. now they're watching the circular firing squad that is the GOP primaries.

    when a candidate emerges from the GOP ruins, people get motivated.

    and he's still raised almost 30 million dollars in january. i wouldn't worry about him if i were you.

    but thanks for your concern.

    and mostly, thanks for making the debate about contraception and abortion. :thup:

    So, Democrats are not donating to Obama's re-election campaign... because they are too busy watching the GOP?

    Really?

    That's sad.

    Obama is sitting on 78 million in the bank right now. ROmney is down to 7 million as of the end of January and he's still fighting for his life against really pathetic opponents. Two has beens and a crazy person.

    Scrappy underdogs can convince you to dig into the couch cushions in January. Incumbents with 6-10 point leads over their closest rivals? Maybe when things tighten up.
