Greed? Hypocrisy? Romney Gives 15% To Charity, Obama 1%, Biden $369 or .3%

This is perfect illustration of those hypocritical politicians saying that we all have to give more of our hard earned dollars to those less fortunate. Or as Joe Biden says, "Time to jump in.

There was an air of grumpy efficency about the call, which was led by Ben Ginsberg, who was George W. Bush's lawyer during the Florida election recount in 2000. At one point Ginsberg noted that 26 people from Chicago were listening into the proceedings, a reference to the Obama campaign headquarters.
