Obama's Millions Could Shrink U.S. Budget Deficit

How much money does it really cost to buy an election? No kidding, I'd really like to know. I'd imagine there is a finite sum that one could spend to ensure that one's candidate could become president, no matter the qualifications. I'd like to know what that figure is.

I know one thing. Barack Hussein Obama has raised $150 million in September alone. I've no idea where the money comes from and Obama's not about to tell us, but that's a good chunk of change. If Obama's lied about "public funding," he owes us at least some "public information" about where the money comes from.

When you add the $150 million in September with the small chunks of about $50 million in other months, he could shrink the budget deficit entirely by himself. So why does he have to use our taxpaying money to fund his future trillion dollars in new spending?

But Obama's not going to use his fundraising abilities to shrink the deficit or put it to other good use. He says it is more important to get himself elected. I'd rather Obama kept his word about public funding and used the money to either shrink the deficit or give it directly to people who need it far worse than the political ad agencies.
