Obama ‘Bets On’ Voters, Believes ‘Good Sense’ Will Prevail Over A Billionaire’s Ad Blitz (VIDEO)
In about 48 hours, the person who will lead our nation for the next 4 years will be decided. On one side, we have a proven incumbent with nothing to hide. On the other, we have millionaire tax dodger Mitt Romney, who is backed by the biggest tsunami of campaign spending any election has ever seen.
And the biggest donor to the biggest conservative SuperPAC is the man who might ultimately decide the election, if Obama supporters fail to turn out decisively on Tuesday. With at least $70 million pledged to Republicans in the 2012 election, Sheldon Adelson is “far and away the largest donor to independent political efforts in…modern history,” says the Huffington Post.
In October, Sheldon Adelson and his wife Miriam Adelson ante up again to saturate our senses with more negative Obama ads. Together, the couple gave $10 million last month to Restore Our Future, the largest SuperPAC that has already spent tens of millions on negative television, radio, and direct mail ads in the months leading up to the election...
Did I mention that Sheldon Adelson has a $2 billion personal interest in seeing Romney elected that has absolutely nothing to do with preserving America’s middle class and everything to do with ushering someone who represents the rich, and the rich alone, into the White House?

"That status quo in Washington has fought us every step of the way over the last four years...They engineered a strategy of gridlock in Congress, refusing to compromise on ideas that, in the past, both Democrats and Republicans have supported. And what they're counting on now is that you are going to be so worn down by all they squabbling, so tired of the dysfunction, so, so weary of what goes on on Capitol Hill that you are just going to give up, and walk away, and just put them back in power, or they them stay there. In other words, their bet is on cynicism, but, Virginia, my bet's on you. My bet's on you, and the decency and the good sense of the American people."
Let's get it done, people...
