Obama Spending Like Drunken Sailor

That's right, despite only reimbursing staffers if they take the el from O'Hare ($1.75 - $2.00) the Obama campaign is spending money like it's tap water. The campaign has planned to up the national staff from about 700 during the end of the primaries to 2000 for the stretch run. That is a larger staff than in the White House and four times more than the Bush campaign of 2004, the previous high water mark. Jaime Sneider of the Weekly Standard Blog posted here on the issue and reasonably stated, "if Obama spends like this when he needs to raise the money himself, one can only imagine what he'll do when he can instead tap the tax coffers of the U.S. Treasury."

Yes, as Obama stated, he has big executive experience running his campaign. Does he have more employees or a bigger budget than the State of Alaska? Probably. Remember when the advocates of change used to say that taking everybody's money meant that you had sold out? Personally, I think he should go buy an island somewhere and just start a country. He would like that.
