  •  either way we are still in for one hell of a fight (9+ / 0-)

    Make no mistake, those gazillionaires will also dump truckloads of money on Santorum, which they will then use to try to control him if he gets in.  

    No matter who the candidate is, we are in for a battle of large magnitude.

    All the more reason for us to bog them down right now and make them waste their money fighting each other for as long as possible.   The more money they waste now, even with their backers' deep pockets, the less they will have in November.

    "Minus two votes for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.

      thrown at this already... you are right. KOS is right... drag this sonofabeech out as long as possible. But the real problem is - they seem to have bottomless buckets of money. My lousy 11.12 donation to Obama feels like it ain't shit.

      Sig seen on Redstate: ABO Anybody But Obama. Sorry, I'm stealing that.... Another Barack Opportunity. Vote Obama/Biden 2012!

        They only look that way to the rest of us.

        But you can be certain that even the gazillionaires have budgets and will stick to them: this much and no more.

        Money can't break the laws of physics: it can only be in one place at a time.  After it's spent, it's gone.  Our goal is to make them spend as much as possible right now.  We can cost them a few hundred million more in the primaries.  That really does make a difference in the general.

        coffee money today ($2) is a LOT of money. Team Blue has access to TONS more people than that.

        I will be sending coffee money every week. Money I can earn online without even working at it. I'll max out in October for Obama and maybe even a few state candidates in my home state of FL.

        Until then $3-$5/week = $20/month without even trying.

        if 1,000,000 people did that, that's $20 million a month. Without a sweat. Look what 5 million did for Newt in SC.

        I've become re-radicalized. Thanks a lot you bunch of oligarchical fascist sons-of-bitches. But once again, I have no choice. Bring it the fuck on.
