  •  You don't get to be that rich... (8+ / 0-)

    ... by throwing good money after bad.  If the recent revelations have the impact they should have on the polls -- and the jury's still out on that -- I think any billionaire worth his/her salt would have to start looking into alternative investments.

    •  pragmatism vs idealism (5+ / 0-)

      at some point, the rich cons who are backing R Money will realize he has no chances of winning. The question to them will be, will they keep putting money down the drain with Romney, or cut our losses and back out?

      But the Koch bros, ad nauseum, now have another problem- they have presented themselves as champions of the con movement, so, if they quit dumping money into Romney, they will risk exposing themselves for what they are- cons using the GOP to make more money for themselves. Further, will those who have so blindly followed the Koch bros, etc., turn on them when they cut off the cash flow? I doubt the sheep of the GOP and the bagged are that smart, but this could be interesting.

      There is a huge potential for this to blow up in the GOP's face, taking down the rich cons with them. It already has started to fall apart, and I think there is plenty more to come. Do the Koch brothers, etc.,  see that they could go down with the Romney ship, if they stay on it? I am certain the Obama team has a lot of ammo stored and will keep a steady stream of attacks coming. Bain is just the first round..
