1. Ground game? Stashing for an October blitz?

 

Pocketing it?

Good question.

8. A lot of his money will come from the SuperPACs and they will conduct that blitz in early October.

Adelson and Kochs can donate a few billion, easily. The GOP will be able to spend 250 million per state in PA, MI, OH, VA, FL with no problem. They can buy a lot of the "ground game" with that money and even pay people to rig the machines.

12. I don't disagree.

 

So what is he doing with the money donated to him? Giving it to congressional races? Keeping it? Borrowing it to make more money? Shylocking it?

2. An avalanche of hate and lies will crash down in mid-late Oct.

Saturation of airwaves and just a bit too late for truth to take hold before election day.

Gonna be brutal. The only way they can win and will be individualized for the down ticket offices as well.

He will claim he has "no control" over PAC ads, with a smirk.

9. Further, SuperPAC money could go directly into the Romney campaign (illegal) but the election

would be over before anything could be done about it.

5. On its way to the Cayman Islands.

You think I'm joking?

I'm not.

The law prohibits "personal use", but for a world class tax fraudster like Romney, he could get around that in his sleep. For example, he could keep millions in his campaign fund, then form a Bermuda-based "consulting firm" and pay that firm a few million bucks every year. Of course, Willard, or maybe Ann would be the sole shareholder of that corporation, but it wouldn't be personal use because it would be professional consulting, don't you know. And because the work is performed in Bermuda, there would be no US taxes owed.

I dare anybody to tell me Romney isn't already making some plans along these lines.

7. Wasting It

They have to report their cash on hand each month and Romney isn't stashing hundreds of millions of dollars, so he is spending it. His amount on hand is about the same as Obama's each much. Clearly whatever he is doing with it isn't helping.

10. You must not live in or near a swing state

I live in Maryland, a pretty reliable blue state. But Virginia is only about 15 minutes away from me, so we get the Virginia commercials. Romney has a ton of ads running, so do Rove and the Koch Brothers. I've taken to turning the TV off so I don't run screaming from the room.

11. The Permanent Candidate.

Maybe you've heard of the "permanent student" ? While accusing the POTUS as being the "Manchurian Candidate", Rmoney is the "Permanent Candidate".

We'll never be completely rid of him, although the powers that be (the power elite) will never permit a third presidential run.

Or have they lost so many brain cells they might just keep running the Mittwitt ?

Also interesting is the fact that he can "donate" most, if not all of it to his "church". Of course we'll never know just how much, LOL.

14. For gathering millions of State early votes, some can even vote before the debates, NC now

They know exactly where they need votes in every state and practiced/made lists at the primary.
