    That doesn't tell the entire story and you know it.

    Hundreds of millions were spent on ads that weren't part of any campaign. The most obvious two groups were from "Move on" and "Swift boats". Everyone knows them. What they spent is "uncounted". This is how Republicans were able to spend 75 million from the Chamber of Commerce and 85 million from Karl Rove, not to mention the other 180 million from the rest of the year. This money came from corporations. This can happen because of the Supreme Court Decision from the Roberts Court and that means, those groups are NOT required to say who their donors are. You don't get something for nothing. Corporations pay for legislation and with Republicans we ALL know they get it. 2.4 million jobs to China from 2001 to 2008. Apology to BP. Bush subsidies to oil companies. It's all paid for.

    And before you go apeshit, I know "Move On" is not conservative. But they do the same thing, only their money comes mostly from the average citizen. It's Republicans who have the "corporation share" cornered.

    What is wrong with you?
