    It appears outside of this donation he's been a small time guy at best. Outside of his desire to help his buddy he's gave a bit here and there. That hardly answers the question of why if he wants to blow $1 million helping out Romney, why it's any of your business.
    you avoided the question
    the article's author identified him as one who had "no major history as a republican donor"
    but that same author told us that the donor "... made a few donations to the Republican National Committee, and contributed to George W. Bush's and Massachusetts Sen.

    Maybe some folks just don't want their name plastered all over the place by the Liberal smear machine. Just a hunch.

    Look what happened to Joe the Plumber. All he did was excercise his right to ask questions, embarressed the crap out of Obama and the Liberal smear machine went into overdrive.

    An Obama supporter--along with a host of others--working for the state of Ohio did an illegal background search, in order to smear Joe the Plumber.

    Why did so many investigate 'Joe the Plumber'? | cleveland.com

    So much for free speech, right?

    That makes him a major contributor? Really? He's been a long time supporter of Romney. You're left picking at words because this turned out to be much ado about nothing.

    Why do we care. Do we know or care about the major donors that will enable Obama to have a $1 billion warchest going into the 2012 election. Much to do about nothing.

    The fact that people aren't concerned about unlimited completely anonymous donations is... disturbing.

    Do you know the major donors to the Obama dinner with NY execs a couple of weeks ago or his big party in Chicago, me neither. I really don't care.

    Obama is likely going to spend near 1 billion with the GOP candidate spending somewhere similiar. I should get upset when citizens decide to try and get a little word in edgewise?
