Obama outspent McCain 4 to 1 in the final push of the campaign. He spent nearly a billion dollars to win the White House. And yet he only won by 5 points over McLame. Me thinks it was less about "hope" "change" and "yes we can" and more about beating the Obamanites into submission with a $720 million dollar ad campaign.
funny, billionaire Rich Devos spent nearly 40 million of his own money and outspent governor Jennifer Granholm in 2006 by a bazillion dollars. he still lost to her by about 20 points. moreover, the Michigan economy was in horrible shape and she still won a big reelection.
money is important, but it's much more important to have a top-notch candidate.
McCain was a lousy candidate so he couldn't generate the donations that Obama could. that's the bottom line.
Funny how Obama the liar promised to take public financing too, then broke that promise. If the media wasn't so busy pleasuring him, they would have called him on it.
It was as fair of a fight as the Yankees vs. the Royals. Sure, the smaller payroll sometimes wins, but most of the time it doesn't.
And yes, McCain was a lousy candidate. But McCain was the candidate you people wanted! He's your favorite Republican...a moderate, liberal...pro-global warming, pro-amnesty for illegals...anti-Christian Right...isn't this what you've been telling us we need to nominate?
i am part of the public and i helped finance Obama. millions of us did and the average donation was about $80.
yeah, Obama went back on the pledge. but nobody who considered voting for him cared since it was over a goofy issue that doesn't impact us . . . well, except that our tax dollars didn't then go to Obama. you should be thanking him, no?
i supported Romney in Michigan (remember, he won our state).
