1. Well, Romney was the brilliant business guy.

So that's to be expected.

5. The 47% paid for both campaigns. Most of Pres. Obama's campaign

was directly paid by small donations from the 47%. Defeated candidate Rmoney's campaign was paid mostly by a few mega-million dollar donations from the 1%, who will re-capture that expense by raising prices on the goods and services sold to the captive market (= us, the 47%). Don't think that the rich took a bath in this election. Even by winning just 1% of the races they targeted, the rich won by winning by getting us to pay for those campaigns.

7. The President got a better deal, but that is still an OUTRAGEOUS amount of money

 

I've seen worse - $20 per vote and even more in local elections.

8. Just curious...

... where those figures came from. While the "popular" vote clearly went to Obama, it certainly wasn't at a 3 to 1 rate. Is this claiming that the Teapublicans spent 3 to 1 on Mittwitt's campaign?

12. Thanks anyway.

What I am really more interested in, is the math and sourcing behind it.

13. This is an example of how a twitter picture

comes in .open the second link it only gives the picture the Obama Diary sends them out
frequently...I tried to find the one I posted under their twitter feed and could not
They have never given sources for their twitter pictures as it comes from
them ...fortunately this is pretty close to their figures first link

14. I just don't see how those numbers could be right.

Obama's total vote will probably come out somewhere in the 55-60 million range, with Romney a few million below that. That would mean that the Obama campaign spent less than $120 million? I thought the Obama campaign itself raised far more than that, without even counting expenditures by independent groups, super PACs, labor unions, other Democratic campaigns, etc.
