What is the old adage? “You are allowed to your opinion but you are not allowed to YOUR facts”…… so to holds true for, per usual the NYTIMES!
The NYTIMES (home of known PLAGIARISTS & the Democrat JournOlisters)- the Obama lapdog- had reported that Obama had received less in campaign contributions than did Romney because the NYTIMES did not bother to lump in the DNC money that is ALSO USED to HELP in electing the President for the DNC.
Shocking, you know that the NYTIMES would play such crazy “word” games. <Sarcasm Off>
Next time, the NYTIMES may want to check with the FEC as to how much a specific POLITICAL PARTY has raised in campaign donations and from WHOM, especially when the President is allowed to raise a certain amount of money while the opposing parties CANNOT!
Obama aides regularly point to his $155 million joint fundraising total with the DNC as evidence of the campaign’s momentum but have tended to ignore DNC money when discussing Wall Street.
The Washington Post came out and put the FACTS straight forward. Campaign contributions INCLUDE those that the Nominee receives as well as the contributions their party receives:
Unlike the Republican candidates, Obama can raise money for both his own campaign account, which can take donations up to $5,000 for the 2012 cycle, and for his party’s national committee, which can accept $30,800 per individual each calendar year. The same donors will be able to give another $30,800 to the DNC next year.
Obama has raised a total of $15.6 million from employees in the industry, according to the Post analysis. Nearly $12 million of that went to the DNC, the analysis shows.
Romney has raised less than half that much from the industry, while Texas Gov. Rick Perry brought in about $2 million. No other Republican candidate has raised more than $402,000 from the finance sector, which also includes insurance and real estate interests.
