    44 - FEC report details lavish Republican spending, including nearly $2,000 at Voyeur West Hollywood

    The RNC had more than $22 million on hand when Steele arrived last year, but is down to under $10 million now despite raising $96 million during that time, records show.

    ------------------------------------

    Micheal Steele, one of the most vocal critics of President Obama's handling of money is one of the best fundraisers the GOP has ever had. Except, he also knows how to spend. Are Republicans really the best choice to be running the countries finances? Have we seen this type of Republican Money Management before?

    Obama and Pelosi just sank the country $2 TRILLION more in debt and you are worried what the RNC (not government) is spending?

    Nice attempt at diversion.

    Hey you do not encourage contributions by saying you have plenty of money.

    And guess what - all of the donations to the RNC were VOLUNTARY.

    If people don't like it, they can withhold future donations; I doubt the OP donated in the first place.

    How oblivious. A big war chest does attract donations. Why did The One give up on matching campaign financing (despite his promise to use it) and instead focused on raising money (much of it suspect) over the internet?

    Are you saying that the Democrats gave out mandates for money?

    If that was the case, no one give a democrat a penny!

    Hmmm, let's see.
    5 to 7 trillion for a Republican "gift" to the drug companies.
    2.5 trillion dollar tax cut (more than half to the top 5%)
    Tax cut while waging two wars totaling 3 trillion (that's insane)

    And what does Obama do? He spends more money to keep our shattered economy out of a Republican manufactured "Great Depression", which seems to have worked. But according to Republicans, Obama is the bad guy? Is this happening, or is it the hash?

    Everyday I get to see who the partisan people are on this forum.
    Look at what you wrote. It is humorous. Maybe true. But humorous.

    You refer to a republican initiative as a gift without proof and you call a democratic initiative a success without proof.

    What you believe is fact, what others beleive is fiction.
    Maybe being that way works for you, but it does not work for America.

    And doesn't it give you a warm a fuzzy feeling that people are willing to donate to the RNC, so their "representatives" can go and have a nice night out on the town watching lesbian sex acts, but will fight tooth and nail to keep our government from providing affordable health coverage for their fellow citizens?

    I'd rather have the RNC spend $2K on recreation than to see our government increase the deficit to nearly $2T this year alone.

    Your outrage, which you are free to express, is sorely lacking in perspective.

    (The RNC has fired the person who organized this outing btw - accountability, probably a new concept to you.)
