PUNDIT PRESS HAS MOVED
Today marks a very exciting day as we launch the new and improved Pundit Press. We have joined forces with High Plains Pundit to design a new website to provide our readers with even more news and information.
Here is the link that will direct you to the new Pundit Press website: http://thepunditpress.com/
This new partnership will also include all 3 of Danny R. Butcher's (aka High Plains Pundit) internet radio shows, Nightly Review, The Danny R. Butcher Show, and Sunday Night Sports Talk.
A special thank you to all of the Pundit Press readers out there for your continued support. We are very excited about what the future holds for Pundit Press, and we hope that you continue with us on this journey.

Importantly, Obama touts the average donation as being exactly $54.94 in order to pretend that he is backed almost exclusively by average Americans. Unfortunately for him, even the average American has a calculator handy. So let's see if Obama's math holds up.
Now, since I wasn't certain if they used the "Total Donors" or "Total Cumulative Donors" to figure out the $54.94, I'm going to assume Total Donors first. And obviously, the way to get an average donation would be dividing the total monetary number by the total number of donors. To quote the dictionary (for arithmetic mean), "The value obtained by dividing the sum of a set of quantities by the number of quantities in the set. For example, if there are three test scores 70, 83, and 90, the arithmetic mean of the scores is their sum (243) divided by the number of scores (3), or 81."
Let's see, $60,000,000 divided by 572,000 is... $104.90. Woah, that is way, way off from the President's "math." Well, maybe he means that "Total Cumulative Donors" number. That's a lot bigger. Let's see, $60,000,000 divided by 2,200,000 is... $27.27. Okay then.
Um... maybe he used that "New Donors" number? Maybe? $60,000,000 divided by 147,000 is... $408.16. Well, it's official: the Obama Campaign can't do math that you learned when you were about 10.
...And these are the people handling our economy.
