You will find out the as is the norm with such events (Romney had one back in the spring) that the 1 million is in the form of pledges, not dollars.

Good stuff! Now if Perry can just have 999 others like this he’ll rake in $1-billion just like PreZero.

Of course the anti-Perry nitwits will call this crony capitalists on the loose and I will call them, out of touch with reality.

Fired up tonight!

Seems like an awful lot of money for somebody to pi$$ away on a third or forth place candidate.>p>
Maybe he plans on transferring some it to SP or HC...

Like I said gov, it aint money, it’s “pledges”. Pledges can easily be rescinded.

These people didn’t get rich writing checks to losers!

When I saw this article, I immediately thought of Bachmann since I saw an article just a few days ago about her money troubles

http://www.bringmethenews.com/2011/09/29/sources-bachmann-may-have-money-trouble-ahead/

I even remember hearing something about someone about to pull the plug on her website because she wasn’t paying the bills, or something like that, or maybe that was Cain.

the way I read it... they paid $25,000 a plate to eat, that doesn’t sound like a pledge, you got to pay for your food.

Actually I think it was a pool bet on the number of debates over/under it takes for Rick to string together three coherent thoughts.

OK, I clicked through to the other article.

Something must be wrong though.

25,000.00 * 300 is 7.5 million.

It’s illegal to donate more than 2,500.00 so probably a typo there.

Even then it only adds up to 750,000.00

Doesn’t add up.

Laugh if you want but any candidate out there would gladly take it even Ms Palin and Mr.Cain.

If you don’t get the big donors your campaign ends sooner rather than later.

Meg Whitman who had illegal aliens running around the inside of her private residence, who then turned on her like a rabid pit bulls, couldn’t buy the governors office after spending 160 million.

The well connected insiders seem to be having difficulty buying political power, like they’ve done in past decades.

You don't know anything about Rick Perry if you are counting him out.

He always runs better when he's behind in the polls.

Don't count your chickens...

BTW, do you think the other candidates will be questioned about immigtaion in the next debate?

successful businessmen, the "rich", republican candidates that out raise democrat candidates=crony capitalists, and anybody but Romney even if "I" have to vote for Obama type of Alice in Wonderland.

strange times we're in, huh? It's like some say "Obama's not THAT bad.

I say the above sentiments hurt the conservative movement even worse than John McCain. At least McCain has an excuse. He's a RINO.

Your turn. Last few days, lots of FR is acting like paulnutz, peckin on Perry. I need to go shoot up an armadiller to let off the FR steam.

Perry needs to drag out the Mutt goat pictures to put the fear back in the Blue Sky ankle biters like Santornem.

Santorum seems to be hanging around so he can be on Greta’s show every other night. He and Newt should hit the road together. Be gone.

“Meg Whitman who had illegal aliens running around the inside of her private residence”

She had ONE, and had documentation that the employee provided documents, solid physical proof, problem was, the documents were forged (not by her) and she did not know -

she did nothing wrong. This could happen to anyone. Were she to refuse to hire that woman because she suspected anything, she’d be guilty of discrimination.

Odd...Illegals are found wandering around military bases, decorating Christmas trees at the White House, posing with dignitaries and ya wouldn't believe the rest.

Anyone have a pic of Alfred E. Newman? I love that guy.

Perry has had a money bomb going on at his site. Of course, he isn’t calling it a money bomb and not trying to raise the kind of money Scott Brown did. It ends at midnight and he only has $125.00 to go!!!

Excellent. I donated today to the Perry campaign. I simply cannot accept the super liberal Mitt Romney as the nominee of the Republican Party. Republican voters need to wake to the simple fact that if Perry is not the nominee then it would be Romney and there is no other way around it. Only one man can defeat Romney and that is Perry. The delusions of other candidates defeating Romney are just delusions.

Just guessing, but I’d bet a dime to a doughnut most billionaires would uh..you know, be careful...annoying things like security might be a bit of concern... A wild hunch...Of course one could just act cool, hire strangers from Jackies big dog and rent a ranny...She can take the kids for Sunday drives. This would no doubt be seen as a non-heartless event, provide peace and harmony, so people can hope for a happier and more compassionate world.
