Once again you hit on the GOP for its fundraising practices while acting as if the Democrats were pure as the driven snow in this area ("In the presidential campaign, money talks," Feb. 23).

Mr Obama's stated goal is to raise $1 billion for his re-election campaign. I guess you think we are all going to send in $3 each. Ain't no way.

Mr. Obama frequently has $35,000 per plate fundraisers with his 1 percent, Wall Street friends, and please don't tell us that George Soros doesn't somehow get dollars into Mr. Obama's campaign.

I know it is hard, but try to be balanced at least once in awhile. You might keep a few more of your readers.
