Obama raises money from "a handful of wealthy donors" too

Why don't you tell your readers the truth for a change? According to The Sun, evil GOP candidates are using super PACs to "raise and spend unlimited amounts of cash on their behalf" ("In the presidential campaign, money talks," Feb. 23).

Why don't you inform your readers as to how our Dear Leader raised hundreds of millions for his re-election campaign? Did this money come from the poverty-stricken and the middle class — or from "a handful of wealthy donors"?

I didn't notice any coverage by The Sun about George Kaiser for example. He was a bundler for President Obama's election fund and was paid handsomely for his efforts.

Solyndra, a company in which Mr. Kaiser had invested heavily, received a half billion dollars of taxpayer cash and recouped his investment ahead of the taxpayers when Solyndra when bankrupt.

And how about Mr. Obama flying down to Florida to give a campaign speech and then attending two fundraisers, all on the taxpayers' dime?
