  •  exactly my thinking (0+ / 0-)

    I began an unfinished diary a while back saying the exact opposite of current conventional wisdom that Romney has oodles of cash. he does not. I believe his own campaign fundraising has reached its finite limit. All the moneybags have maxed out. His $$ has been falling since his June peak of $125 million.

    The so-called billionaire superpac $$ is simply a narrative mirage that scares the corporate media into compliance thinking they'll get their grubby hands on outsized ad $$.

    I don't think any such outrageous pac money exists. The billionaires don't have that kinda cash sitting anywhere to cut checks from. Their monies are paper/stock digits not actualized wealth.

    They are backing Romney in order to get their greedy hands of government contract and tax largesse & corporate welfare.

    Romney is running to change tax laws for his own benefit so he can repatriate his money stash abroad to pass on to his kids & grandkids tax free.

    This is my analysis.

    •  Understand your point. But even Romney by (0+ / 0-)

      himself (not including Super PACs) has had like 4 straight months of more than $100 million raised.  So for his campaign alone it's something in the neighborhood of $450 million.  How is it possible they've only spent $180 million so far?

      In the grand scheme of things it doesn't matter.  I'm just curious because it stood out as odd to me that this post said they have only spent $180 million to date between Romney AND his Super PACs.
