impressive! oh…..wait

Read on:

“Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman’s presidential campaign raised $4.1 million in the nine days since he formally entered the race, though about half of the funds came from the millionaire’s own pockets, a campaign official said Thursday night. Huntsman said previously that he threw some of his own fortune into the campaign to “prime the pump” and help get it started.” (link)

So, eh, should the headline not be: “Huntsman fundraising pulls in $2 million in first nine days”?

Thanks Jovie

WSJ (May 2011): Without any fanfare, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. has taken off the table one of the chips that might have made him a formidable Republican White House hopeful right out of the gate: He will not bankroll his presidential campaign with the Huntsman fortune.

“If we were to get in the race – no self-financing,” Mr. Huntsman told reporters over the weekend in South Carolina. “Unless you can raise it legitimately, you’re not going to win.”

Thank you StR – great spot

President Obama holds an iPad as he prepares to climb into his car after landing in Chicago on Marine One, April 14

Time (November 2010): Potus turned to the Thai leader to his right.

“So you like your iPad?”

The Thai leader nodded and asked if Potus had one.

“You know, I bought one for my wife. But these days mostly I have someone carrying my books. So that’s my iPad.”

Life might be easier for Reggie now 🙂
