<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> Mitt Romney, meanwhile, has a different kind of money problem. His problem is that virtually no one like you and I are donating to him. And the difference between his fundraising numbers and President Obama’s is nothing short of astonishing.

[...] Romney continues to lag behind his rivals in raising money from so-called small-dollar donors, supporters who donate less than $200. Donations from people who contributed less than $200 — often viewed as a gauge of popular appeal — are filed as “unitemized” donations with the Federal Election Commission (FEC).

FEC filings on Tuesday showed Romney’s campaign has so far raised $7.5 million from small donors, which comprises only 10 percent of his fundraising. That proportion has roughly remained the same throughout the campaign. [...]

While the Republican candidates battle through the primary season, the re-election campaign of President Barack Obama has brought in about $71.1 million in unitemized contributions, 59 percent of the money the campaign has raised so far.</div></div>

Is this not the ultimate proof that Romney is already bought and paid for by special interests.

Q..... nobody likes him!!!! (http://bobcesca.com/blog-archives/2012/03/mitt-romneys-astonishing-lack-of-small-donors.html)

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>Remember when the policies of George W. Bush saved the economy?

Me neither, but apparently Mitt Romney does.</span>

“I keep hearing the president say that he’s responsible for keeping America from going into a Great Depression,” Romney told a crowd at a town hall meeting in Maryland Wednesday. <span style='font-size: 14pt'>“No, no no. That was President George W. Bush and Hank Paulson that stepped in and kept that from happening.” </span>

Oh. Okay. It was actually Bush who rescued the economy, not President Obama

So the Bush policy was bad, but Obama saved us by following the Bush plan?

What a true tool you are.

The Bush policies in sum brought the financial world to the brink of the abyss.

After the fall of Lehman Brothers, SecTreas Paulson didn't so much have a plan, exactly-- he had a one pager wholly non-transparent stop-gap paroxysm authorizing him to do whatever he wanted with over $700 billion dollars, with no one able to know the secret of what he'd do with the money, and no one able to hold the executive branch responsible under law.

That worked SO WELL that CBO projected a $1.2 trillion dollar deficit for FY2009 (beginning Oct 1, 2008), as monthly jobs lost figures soared to 750,000 a month, with millions of jobs newly lost in total AND JOB LOSSES INCREASING each month as Obama took office.

That was your Bush 'plan,' and its 'success.' There wasn't any, and it was not what Obama did in the aftermath.
