I don't recall advertisements of Obama being against earmarks.

You wanna play, you've got to pay.

I posted it because some of the illegal lovers are posting about Palin's earmarks that she got for her state. Tit for tat, so to speak.

You're right. If Obama was running an ad talking about reduced earmarks, I'd buy it. Unfortunately, only the leprechaun and Sarah Stalin are.

Good God, Obama's list or earmarks just goes on and on and on.....

Thought Obama said he wasn't going to play "politics as usual".....thought he was a Washington outsider......thought he was different.

This list of earmarks looks like the same tired old politics as usual. Obama and his lies. Sad.

Yeah, 50K for park upgrades and 24K for books at a community center is just horrid! He should be ashamed of the 100K he requested for that library!!

Obama claims he's going to cut taxes... but he won't. That claim has already been debunked.

He requested more money...and only knew how to press the "present" button for all the 143 business days he was a Senator, meanwhile writing 2 memoires (probable during the time he was paid as a Senator...another earmark.
