So Obaa raised 70 million last month and says 98% is from "small" donations......

Didn't he raise like 12 million in one night at george Clooneys house.

Fritz,
I was thinking the same thing! But, then I watched an episode of Million Dollar Homes. It's a "reality" show about real estate agents selling multi million dollar properties. They were negotiating the price of a $3.5 mill home... the seller came off the price "only" $250,000. Now, in MY little world.... $250k is MORE than enough to buy a few houses...much less be the "negotiated" price difference!! LOL
I guess "small" donations is relative to your definition of "small". If you're accustomed to multi million dollar donations, then a little ol' group of folks donating "a little" ($200k + each) just isnt that "big" :rolleyes:

Nothing but smoke to hide the real donations.

92 people donate 1 dollar, 8 people donate 1 million dollars= 92% of donations are small. Political rederick, both sides use it.

Who knows, maybe Clooneys house is HUGE, and there were a million people there and they all donated $12

It might have something to do with this....



Obama did raise nearly $15 million earlier this month from an A-list fundraiser at actor George Clooney's canyon home in Los Angeles. Seats at the table cost $40,000, but more than half that money came in from a raffle for small-dollar donors hoping to score an invitation.

I will bet you anything you want to bet that a million people did NOT donate $12 at the Clooneys.

As a betting man I have to say Thanks for the offer Stan, but I believe I'll pass on your wager :)

I was simply trying to find a mathematical possibility for the BS that these politicians routinely try to get us to {sometimes successfully} believe
