THE NEXT PRESIDENT IS AWESOME!
BARACK IS ORGANIZED AND CAN REALLY RAISE MONEY!

Oh! yes he can. Raise money to buy the presidency. He is taking money from state and municipal lobbyists, and lobbyists wives. He's taking lots and lots of money from lobbyists who are out actively raising money from others on his behalf. The practice of using well-connected individuals to raise money from groups of people is known as 'bundling'.The fact that he has plenty of lobbyists working as bundlers for his campaign wouldn't seem to make him any less beholden than if he'd taken their personal checks. Rezko way's, but different names but the same 'pay and play' scheme. http://article.nationalreview.com Lobbying for Obama
