It Doesn't Take $150,000 to Look This Good

10/22/2008 6:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The RNC may have shelled out $150k to turn Governatrix VP hopeful Sarah Palin into Caribou Barbie, but how much is Barack Obama shelling out for his threads?

Our cameraman managed to get up close and personal with Barack in Virginia today to ask the $150,000 question.

grossed out    

Barrack Hussein Obama is receiving a BULK of his funds from overseas like Saudi Arabia, Iran, and more middle eastern countries. He definitely has some ties to the muslim world.

I LOVE HOW EVERYONE POINTS THE FINGER AT OBAMA'S "LAVISH SPENDING" WHEN JOHN MCCAIN OWNS A RANCH AND 7 MANSIONS. NOOOOOOOO THATS NOT EXCESSIVE. HYPOCRITES. MCCAIN SUPPORTERS HAVE VERY FEW VALID ARGUMENTS AGAINST OBAMA, THEIR ONLY DEFENSE IS RACISM. SO BECAUSE OBAMA HAS MUSLIMS IN HIS FAMILY, HE MUST BE A TERRORIST. THAT'S AN EDUCATED CONCLUSION. IDIOTS. I CAN'T WAIT TILL MCCAIN MAKES IT INTO OFFICE AND THE COUNTRY AND ECONOMY CRUMBLES BEFORE US!! I WILL LAUGH MY A$$ OFF AT YOU IDIOTS EVERY DAY. HEY. I'VE BEEN POOR ALL MY LIFE, I HAVE NOTHING LEFT TO LOSE... BUT ALL THE REPUBLICANS DO... AND I CAN'T WAIT TO WATCH THEM LOSE IT ALL!!! GO MCCAIN!!!

Insufficient Information given on these expenditures:

Barack Obama - $550,232
John McCain - $160,572

I guess Obama bought a new wardrobe for himself, Michelle and the twins.

Bite Me !    

EDUCATED YOURSELF !
The Bush tax cuts are going to expire. What are the Pre-Bush tax numbers and why do they apply to you? Well, under Obama there will be no Bush tax cuts applied & this is what you will pay :
*Single making 30K will be paying 8,400 / under McCain 4,500
*Single making 50K ” 14,000 / ” 12,500
*Single making 75K ” 23,250 / ” 18,750
*Married making 60K ” 16,800 / ” 9,000
*Married making 75K ” 21,000 / ” 18,000
*Married making 125K ” 38,750/ ” 31,250
Under Obama’s plan your taxes will be more than DOUBLE & small business profit tax will be DOUBLE. Listen, Obama is playing games with words & using lying by omission. He tells you what you want to hear. The fact is he will let the Bush Tax cuts expire & of course, he’s not raising your taxes, he’s just letting the tax cuts already in place go dormant. It’s very much like a store putting its merchandises on sale for 20% off tomorrow but the night before they raised them up 20%. THEY ARE NOT LYING; THEY ARE JUST MANIPULATING THE NUMBERS TO THINK YOU ARE GETTING A BARGAIN.
