    'add it all up — and throw in a pledge from the leading conservative super PAC to spend better than $200 million— and it becomes possible that Obama, the single greatest fundraiser in the history of American politics, might get outraised (and outspent) between now and Nov. 6.'

    Are you guys really that partisan?

    The fact that there's so much money behind both candidates is a scary thing, not something to be proud of your candidate for.

    Wow, you just made a great case against Mitt.... So what SF is really saying is Obama WAS the most owned politician in the history of the world until Mitt Romney came along. That is of course if enough "people" buy Mitt this election.

    Why would I want Mitt to win anyways, at some point he literally supported every big policy Obama has passed...

    Do you really need me to posta video of Mitt supporting a federal mandate on HC? Really? Reeeaaaallllly?

    Let me put it like this, if you think it's bad with me owning your ass here, wait until Obama makes sure every American has seen that video enough times to make them sick.

    Do you also need me to post a link showing that Mitt's HC system gets around 500 million a year from the Federal Government still? Of course Mitt didn't need to raise taxes in his state, all the other states help pay for his HC system.

    I don't care how much money is behind any given candidate if it is within reasonable limits from specific donors. No one should be able to donate millions of dollars toward any candidate. What is hilarious is that they make it illegal to donate more than $2500 directly to any candidate, but if you want to give to a Super Pac, sky's the limit. What the fuck is the difference in the end?
