think the fact that we have so much other things going on in the world and this is what he is worried about says loads about his character.
This probably took Obama what, 15 minutes to do?
I think you're letting yourself get a little carried away. I see it on both sides of the fence, and it's an election season so I don't blame you,
but try to step back and take a fresh look at it. It's just a simple gesture to encourage small donations to his campaign.
I don't like the nature of campaign finance any more than you do. It's a really messed up situation where our candidates focus all their time and
money on campaign efforts instead of their jobs. However, this is nothing new. Every
incumbent candidate has done this.
Obama's campaign relies on getting many small donations from a large amount of supporters. Romney's campaign relies on a few large donations from a
much smaller group of much wealthier supporters. It's only natural that Obama is going to reach out for more donations, because the people funding
his campaign are mostly middle class citizens and not the ultra-wealthy.
