Just The Facts

Q: Did 10 percent of Hillary's votes come from "Limbaugh Democrats" in the Ohio and Texas primaries?
A: According to exit polls, she didn't get that many of her votes from Republicans, and it's hard to know how many of those she did get were the result of Rush Limbaugh's exhortations.

Q: Was Obama correct to say 90% of his money comes from donors giving $50 or less?

A: No. He gets more from small donors than either Clinton or McCain, but two-thirds of his money still comes from those giving $200 or more.

Are Barack Obama and Dick Cheney cousins?
A: Yep. But they are quite distant relatives.

Is Obama right to say some CEOs make more in 10 minutes than an average worker does in a year?
A: By our calculations only Steve Jobs did so in 2006.

Quote from Obama:

"We have now raised 90 percent of our donations from small donors, $25, $50. We average -- our average donation is $109...."

90% of our donations could just as easily mean the quantity of donations, not their total amounts. Whether 90% of their individual donations are "small" or not, I don't know, but the point is the same. Their average donation is just over $100. That shows a commitment from working Americans.

Now, that's a convoluted Obamabot, comment.
They all march in lockstep, and if Obama has dog shit on his shoes they say he is fertilizing the world. All hope, change, blah, blah, blah nonsense.

Sure, we can argue about the meaning of an unimportant comment or we can get back to more important issues, like getting our economy back on track.

It's your call.
