Thanks Frank , I can see why your side won....Did your wife and family contribute to Romney? Sounds like it to me....

Obama won cause he actually cares about the people unlike the One Sided Republiscums. Its a "no brainer" but then again Republiscums have no brains.

Gee, another word of wit from the party of tolerence...Just keep cashing in those welfare checks, I'm sure you agree that the government can do a better job with your money then you can. ...Hey, It's a free country why not. just take what you can get while it's still there. No one will call you a lazy mooch now will they?

Just remember 08736 covers a large portion of Wall Township.

I think these figures reflect what happened nationally--Obama had a lot more donors, but on a per person basis they gave a lot less than Romney's donors.
