  •  I assume these are the last ad buys? (23+ / 0-)

    Otherwise I'd say they're retooling. The sales job this week is different than they thought it would be.

    During their convention it was "we built that". Then they switched to "are you better off"? Both of which possibly have been rendered useless after our own convention.

    Maybe they need time to retool and make new ads.

    Or maybe Romney is planning to keep whatever money is left over for himself. He's got a supposed net worth of about 300 million or so. This would be a nice way to double that. And in only a few short months! What a return on investment!

    •  And BTW there are zero rules for how left (9+ / 0-)

      Over superpac money must be distributed.

      My guess, honestly, is that Romney's campaign will find a way to empty itself into a superpac fund where he gets a check written to him for whatever he transferred in from the campaign account. Nice way to bank a health profit in exchange for a few exhausting and humiliating months of work.

      •  Money + Moneygrubbers = Sleaze (0+ / 0-)

        Given that their side is heavily populated with people whose ideology, to the extent that they actually believe in any, is a set of elaborate rationalizations for greed, some of that money is going to end up like the pallets of cash shipped to Iraq.

        On the Internet, nobody knows if you're a dog... but everybody knows if you're a jackass.

      Featuring people talking to empty chairs.

      On Thursday, the Republican National Committee released an ad, aired on NBC’s “Today” show, showing the party’s director of Hispanic outreach, Bettina Inclan, breaking up with an imaginary Obama seated across from her at an elegant dinner table. “You’re just not the person I thought you were,” she says.

      Asked in an email where and when the ad would run, the party’s communications director, Sean Spicer, had no immediate comment.

      Do you not see that it is the grossest idolatry to speak of the market as though it were the rival of God?

      expect a lot more ads over the last 8 weeks. they may go hog-wild in a lot of marginal states if they have money to burn.
      Personally, i don't think the repug/romney show has that much left. They run a richer campaign operation.

    •  So he hopes to take over... (5+ / 0-)

      the Republican Party, then bankrupt and downsize it and keep the change for himself.

      If that's the Romney version of hope and change, I'm all for it.
