    Looks good. The campaign has to increase it's donor relations department and ask those who have not maxed out to donate more.

    The message of the day: Only three Republican campaigns are fiscally secure and fecund, and Paul's is one of them. (The others are Rudy Giuliani's and Fred Thompson's.)
    I don't buy that Mitt Romney's campaign is fiscally unsecure. Mitt could drop down $50 million of his own money at any moment. He is more dangerous than Fred Thompson for sure. If Mitt wins a few of the first primaries - he might just do this.
    I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically. Carried out, it finally amounts to this, which also I believe "That government is best which governs not at all"; and when men are prepared for it, that will be the kind of government which they will have. - Henry David Thoreau

    Perhaps, but he probably has to use that money to buy the "support" that Dr. Paul is getting for free.

    Can you imagine how much this "grass-roots support" would cost to organize from the top down.

    It is a bad sign of things to come if he were elected, one can't keep writing checks to fund the government
    Of course they just ask the fed to print more $$$ on paper, causing more debt.

    As with most smart businessmen I'm sure Mitt has already decided how much he will 'invest' in his own campaign. Yes, he could throw another 50 million towards his campaign but I'm sure he won't spend more than the x he had planned on unless he has some early victories.

    I heard somewhere (dont quote me) that Mitt was in for only another $15 million. That might have been before last Quarter's infusion however

    No mention of military donations, first place donations in some states, 2nd and 3rd in primary states, and celebrity donations? :O

    That's why it's important to not allow him any early victories.

    That means 97% of those who have donated to the Ron Paul campaign can donate again!

    Please keep the donations flowing!

    Another thing about Mitty is that with all the money he has already spent he is only at 10% nationally, which is only 5% higher than Dr. Paul.

    Mitt will only win in his own mind. He apparently loves himself alot more than the american people do.

    Too bad he can only vote for himself once.

    Yeah, but he's spending in early primary states, and doing very well there. He was governor of MA, which has many people commuting from New Hampshire, so he's got regional credibility as well. Its going to be a knock-down drag-out to win New Hampshire. But we must. New Hampshire is critical.

    Default I hope Mitt spends 50 million

    Romney is really targeting his money to the early primary and caucus states. He is one to watch and may be a major competitor to Ron Paul.

    Rudy is ready to lose Iowa, New Hampshire and other states and hopes to win in Florida, California and the large states.

    Romney is targeting the early states like Ron Paul.
