Got news for you. Money matters. Regardless of how you feel about Romney, you should feel positive that the Repubs outraised Obama, which included his Hollywood love fests and coming out dinners.

Directly, or indirectly, it will have some impact in downstream races. Money counter-acts the despicable media's spin and lies.

I’m no Romney fan but with our limited choices, I’ll back him! This huge sum is indicative of a new enthusiasm from anyone who’s not a left wing looney to “get the louse out of the house” IMHO.

Looking forward to donating. Also looking forward to donating to key senate races.

We need control of everything.

Don't think raising money will be an issue for the Republicans this year. We do need to work on the "passion" factor.

Can't afford another "flat" performance like we got from McCain or Dole.

Obozo keeps flying out to Californicator land to squeeze money out of the lefties and gay in your face homosexuals.

Even those groups are complaining about him using California and them as his personal ATM’s to raise money for his upcoming 2012 defeat.

My wife and I watched and laughed yesterday evening while watching the local Fox channel. A black lesbo was complaining about how her beloved Obozo was mistreating them and using them as an ATM to raise money. Of course she will continue to vote for him.

Anyone know who the last president was that didn’t spend tons of money to get elected?

The dems had many of us (myself included) convinced the Obama money machine was far and away going to blow out of the water anything the GOP could muster.

Happily, I can say I was wrong.

This has to be a culture shock moment for the heretofore pampered One.

Enough Slamming Romney. Buck up- he is our nominee and he is the one that is going to spank Obama. As bad as I hate his policies in MA, he is our guy at this time. It is Either Romney or Herr Obamamohamed. I choose Romney. He will not destroy our country. IE fast and Furious, Race baiting, telling the Russians to just hold on till after he is reelected then there will be more room to negotiate. Obama is the Target, not Romney. I am sorry but I am sick of Freepers taking their eyes off the goal. Get rid of Obama.

Where does the Obama campaign send your check? You are showing with that comment that you are no conservative and do not belong on FR. It has shown that large campaign contribution to the presidential campaign of a certain party always results in increasing the contribution to lower offices in that party. Not quit your campaigning for Obama and get going on fighting for conservative politicians and policies that promoted conservative principles where you can make an impact.

Otherwise DU ca always use new members.

I believe that the silent majority has seen enough of he class warfare... The Occupy crowds. The divisions...

Wisconsin was very telling.

To your point.. The main story at Latimes.com

"Obama, 'first gay president', hailed in L.A..

The pervert-in-chief is disgusting.. Even with all of these gay Fundraisers, Romney out-raised him. Anyone actively rooting against Romney is really helping to do Obama's dirty work.

I agree, however until we can grow enough of the grass roots Conservatives into town leaders, then state leaders, then national level leaders, the RINOs in charge of the party will always push their candidate - Bush 41, Dole, McCain.

I suspect, that you thought like me, that based on the results of 2010 elections, 2012 would see the rise and success of a Reagan-esque leader in the GOP to take control of the WH while newly minted Tea Party candidates would lead the charge in congress. Unfortunately, the media narrative and the lack of will on the part of “moderate” Republicans to embrace the Tea Party ideals, have somewhat stalled the movement - for now.

However, the enemy of my enemy is my friend and Willard is it this year. My father, my brother and myself have all foguht and bled for the values and ideals of this country. Obama, rejects and in fact hates those very things that I believe make us great. Willard, for all his flaws, does recognize the exceptionalism of this country.

This is not an election solely over the traditional election issues of right to choose, defense spending, soical programs. I believe it is a referendum on the future of this country - will it be able to pull itself up by its bootstraps and heal or will a pretender get re-elected that will shepherd it right into the abyss.

I am not a religious man, but I pray everyday for the good Lord to open the eyes and the ears of the people to truly understand that what is going on and that is truly a battle between the righteous and the godless. To win the war, we have to win the battle. This November is the first in a string of upcoming battles.
