    There is no ideological component here.  When all is said and done, there will have been upwards of $1 Trillion spent on this campaign.  Most of that money goes to media buys.  The money blitz is fueled by the perception that it is possible for Romney to win.  This is because the big money suckers are dumping huge sums into his campaign and then of course Obama has to follow suit or else get swamped.  So, the moment it looks like the race is over, the gravy train starts to slow down.  The longer they can make the thing look competitive the more dollars they can vacuum up from Romney's wealthy suckers and those trying to shield the President from them.
