Mitt was smart enough not to put his own money into his campaign...


He did not bet on himself, he let Rove milk the Billionaire donors

He always came off, as someone who was selling a used car, even though he knew it would be a lemon

2. That is the first thing taught to the richer businessmen

Never use your own money.
Use someone else's money to make money.

6. True...

Well, I guess that is why he(Romney) had to leverage bail outs from the government for Bain and during his Olympic tenure.

May also be one of the reasons he lost.

4. Doesn't Bain own a load of media companies?

If so then he would have gained from all the ad revenue.

8. Mitt did what he does best....

suck money out of others for his own benefit. I don't think it had to do so much with being smart as being self-serving and greedy.

9. That's why he quit the primary in 2008..he had spent enough of his own $$$

and Mccain & Huckleberry were obviously going to continue.. I remember a comment from Mitten then that went something like this..

After conferring with family, they decided I should not spend the "family fortunes" to continue the run..
