Hmmmmm, looks like the “carpet bombing” has the WaPo a little worried. What they are seeing is true leadership in action. Hahahaha

Seems reasonable as the campaigns are WAY too long (by years) and many don’t decide until they are in the booth.

Obama needs to spend more money trying to win Arizona... his supporter tell me it’s “in play” so he can blow his wad there instead of swing states like Florida. bwahahaha.

Romney and well-funded allies.

Typical Post. LOL

What the heck is “high risk” about airing a lot of ads?

Maybe they mean it was risky to hold off the big guns until now? But Mitt’s leading the polls and carpet-bombing with ads now has little downside, aside from overall voter fatigue with the volume of ads, But that goes for both sides.

Where were these jerkwads last month when Obama was running ads in the college football games every five minutes?

Are we seeing Shock and Awe in action here?

The question still comes down to how many have all ready voted. Absentee votes in places like Colorado will decide who wins the Presidential race and its likely the majority will have been already cast by the time the ad buy kicks in.

Candidates spending millions to get votes that have already been cast may be the obituary of this election season..

I have to say, I was wrong about Romney. This campaign stayed patient and didn’t panic. The leadership Romney has show THROUGH his campaign (since before the primaries) has been nothing but impressive. He has won me over with his actions and deeds. I doubt he is the total conservative that would be my ideal President, but we need a leader, even if I won’t agree with him on every issue.

What’s really sad is the number of people whose votes can be swayed by 30 second tv commercials

When I was studying politics, I think the assertion was that the average voter needed to see your ad 8 times in the previous week in order to vote for you. Saturation sticks your name and sound bite into their minds.

It’s not Colorado, but look at the absentee ballot requests on Ohio. They are very telling. The democrat requests are way down. The Republican requests are way up.

This was Jerry Brown’s strategy in California when he beat multi-millionaire Meg Whitman.

She basically spent $150 million of her own money over a long campaign season and Jerry waited until the last month and he won.

Romney’s strategy from the start was to dropkick Obama at the end. The only pitfalls now (barring an October surprise) would be the next two debates.

yep, my thoughts exactly.

It’s time for the grown ups to take back the wheel from the affirmative action idiot that nearly blew up the entire world in a few short years.

I think the next debate is really the last oe that will matter. It is town hall - definite wild card right there. Third debate is foreign policy only. People will sleep through that one.

Romney’s strategy is to let you come, challenge him, and then deliver a vastly intensified licking toward the end, it’s how he campaigned for governor of Massachusetts, and it’s also how he’s doing it now. Frankly, I have my disagreements, but now is less about finding some ideal candidate for every issue as opposed to one who is competitive, which we frankly really need right now in this highly partisan, smear-happy atmosphere.

I agree Ohio may be a different story, but assuming that all states are the same is a mistake. Absentee voting is very popular in the Intermountain West. I saw somewhere that 40% of the ballots in Colorado are absentee. I've already voted and I think I'm not alone, putting all your eggs in a two to three week buy before the election seems so 2008 to me...
