What a rejection it is! http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/20/us/politics/20donate.html?hp Obama Raises More Than $150 Million in September and here is the real kicker The average contribution, Mr. Plouffe said, was $86. And who is giving to Obama? No, it's not the Republican Washington Lobbyists. âThe two groups that have given us the most contributions are retirees and students, which shows how Barackâs call for change has spanned the generations,â Mr. Plouffe said. âNurses, teachers, small business owners. It really is the fabric of America that has built this campaign.â All I can say is , the majority of Americans definitely are putting their wallet where their mind is they are tired of republican corruption, incompetence, nonsensical wars and delusions of grandeur.
