    You put it much better than I would have.  What a game of rope-a-dope from OFA in the Summer - "We're going to be the first incumbent campaign to be outspent... so send us lots of money."  Yeat, bullshit ... but in a good way.

      ...they didn't anticipate the independent expenditure groups would misspend so badly, in every conceivable way.  Bad ads, erratic messaging, erratic choices of states, even choices of channels and times of day can be questioned.

      I think they knew Romney himself wouldn't stay toe-to-toe with OFA financially, although Marc Ambinder wrote some weeks back that Romney raised more than OFA thought possible......although I don't know how much OFA might've been fooled, too, by the big numbers, not realizing how little was really Romney campaign money as opposed to RNC and Victory Fund.
