    "The biggest spenders were Chevron and Wal-Mart, which donated $2.9 million and $2.2 million respectively. And the biggest recipients were the Congressional Black Caucus with over $6 million, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus with over $4 million and President Barack Obama with over $1 million. Nine of the top 10 recipients were Democrats, or in the case of the two ethnic caucus groups, heavily oriented to the Democratic Party. The lone top 10 recipient not associated with Democrats is Gen. David Petraus, recently appointed by President Obama as director of the CIA."

    Whoops, I mean Democrats!

    Yes, as far as I know Obama is the most owned person in the history of the world.

    Blah, blah, blah. You want to talk about the problem, give us a solution. So what if Obama is going to have a billion, that's the way the game is played. If you were really concerned, you'd be calling for public financing of elections. Until then, eat Obama's dust.
