150K is alot but I am sure the Dems are spending a lot on useless things as well. Also being a women running for office, makes you a target and people jump on things really quickly. Therefore spending on clothes should be higher for women seeking office.

A good pants-suit costs a lot of money.

Glade you brought this up.

Senator Hillary Clinton is the biggest porker of the three. 281 earmarks worth $296 million. Senator Obama is next. 53 earmarks worth $97 million. Senator John McCain has never requested an earmark.”

[quote]Politico told [B]CBS News[/B] it hasn't been able to identify any similar expenditures on the Democratic side.

I agree it is a bit outlandish, but I don't know if Clinton was on the ticket, the Dems would not be spending as much.

Also I never said Dems would be spending as much on clothing, but on other pointless things as well.

What's the big deal? Both sides do it, the article said as much. It didn't have a bill total for Hillary but mentioned that she would get $2500 haircuts. These people are loaded....Hillary, Bush, Gore, John Kerry, McCain. Does anyone honestly think these politicians live like you and I? Come on.

Not saying it might not be the best thing to be doing but hey both sides do it.

Yupp like I said, if we want to get on Obama, I think he has made a LOT of money just selling books. he has been making millions every year, mostly from book sales.

The one for the building was a seperate bill which was not stuck in on the back pages of another bill. So congree has to vote on that straight up and I'm not sure if thats really considered pork spending. The other is for a buffer zone around a Air Base and I just don't know if thats considered port in a defense spending bill. We have that issue here in our area because the navy jets practice right over peoples homes. So from my perspective its a defense issue.

So that's what those contribution requests I get every other day are for :madani:

However it's pretty convenient Politico couldn't find any numbers on what's been spent on the dems side. I'm sure Hillary, Kerry and Edwards were running up the same or more excessive bills.

Heck no I went right to the Obama web site for one. These are list of pork he has stuck into bills and he is proud of asking congress for over 900 million for his pet projects.[URL="http://obama.senate.gov/press/070621-obama_announces_3/"]Obama Announces FY08 Federal Funding Requests | U.S. Senator Barack Obama[/URL]

Or maybe you could look at fact check to read about his 3 million for an overhead projector. [URL="http://www.factcheck.org/askfactcheck/did_obama_request_a_3_million_overhead.html"]FactCheck.org: Did Obama request a $3 million 'overhead projector,' as McCain claimed?[/URL]

Or how about this site were they show that for every working day (Monday-Friday) Obama has been in ofice has asked for an average of a million dollars on pork spending. [URL="http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/718/"]PolitiFact | McCain's got Obama over a pork barrel[/URL]
