I just heard this on CNN not 5 minutes ago
In September Obama received \$181m in donations. The average donation was just \$53 (according to CNN).

Lets round 181m down to 150m. Lets round \$53 to \$50.

150m/50=50m

50m people donated to Obama in September alone?

Do I have this right? What am I missing? Have 50m people really donated to Obama in September alone? Or does CNN have a different definition of AVERAGE?

Guess my math was off. But only by a few million. I'm probably good to work for the federal reserve right?

I know you have done Mitt Romney's budget plan; don't lie!

The middle class will not need to be taxed since there will not be any middle class left anyway.
