41. I tend to agree with your assessment here. They're counting on the CU money to blast Obama.

I think that their "plan" is part of the recent "we decided on a theme!" announcement of "USA Comeback Team" or some such nonsense (again, he's pushing the whole Olympics things.) And I think the "PLAN" is who he chooses for VP, and it's just so revolutionary and awesome that everyone will vote for him instead of Obama (but we saw how that Plan worked for McCain.)

The one that that the billionaires cannot buy is this: LIKABILITY. They can attack President Obama in ads all day long, but the nice thing about being President is that your stuff is already out there, no shockers. But President Obama is likable (unless you're a rabid fool who would never vote for him anyway.) But to the republicans and conservative democrats and the independents, who are the swing voters, Romney has to be LIKABLE. He is just not likable at all. And hearing him speak is like watching a badly produced corporate training video. No personality, and truly.. comes off very untrustworthy. The Bain stuff is playing into the unease that voters already have with him...

That is the saving grace here. Romney, for all of the billions and dirty tricks, is just not someone that ANYONE would get excited about. And President Obama does have his secret weapon: Michelle. She is probably one of the top 3 most popular First Ladies, she's extremely likable.
