    Interesting article. I like the comparison of the biggest contributors for each candidate:

    The thing that stood out the most to me was Mitt raised by far the most yet it's almost all by the big donations and corporations. That's very bad imo for Mitt.

    Assuming anyone pays attention. Plenty of Republicans will see that as a 'sign of success'.

    Romney, the Wall Street nominee for prez. Their kiss of death will cost him dearly, a smart man would tell the banks to keep their strings attached money.

    I honestly doubt Mitt will get the nomination, everyday that Mitt is not in first place it proves that 32 million raised VS someone with 13 million raised or even 4 million raised shows Mitt's massive lack of support.

    I also wonder how much Mitt gave himself, I remember back in 2007 he gave himself million of his own money to make hit "war chest" look bigger... How did that work out?

    The seminar posters are thick on this thread.

    How do you guys get paid for this stuff anyway? Like...you are hanging out at the soup kitchen..and some one walks up to you and says they will give you a blow job if you tow the line...how does this work?

    This further goes to reinforce my opinion of Romney as the big government/big money guy he is.
