According to The New York Times President Obama raised over $42 Million last quarter tho, The Today show and Huffington Post report that it was at least $68 Million last quarter for his re-election campaign, either way it was a boatload of money. I didn’t vote for him last time around but I would this time if he stopped campaigning, ran the country and took that $68 Million and put it toward job creation.
Smart job creation, like to small businesses who know what to do with it.
