It's All About the Little Guy


"But above all, I will never forget who this victory truly belongs to – it belongs to you.

I was never the likeliest candidate for this office. We didn't start with much money or many endorsements. Our campaign was not hatched in the halls of Washington – it began in the backyards of Des Moines and the living rooms of Concord and the front porches of Charleston.

It was built by working men and women who dug into what little savings they had to give five dollars and ten dollars and twenty dollars to this cause."

While it is true that millions of regular people like Obama's illegal alien aunt on public housing gave their rent money to Obama, the Guardian from London has an interesting list of donors to mister "change".
Goldman Sachs employees and families provided $847,207.
People associated with JP Morgan $581,460.
Citigroup associates $581,216.
The famoulsly liberal University of Cal. employees, members and families gave $909,203.

Yep, it's all about the little guy. Oh yeah, and Change.
