Skip to comments.With so much money raised why is Mr. Romney not fighting back?

Suddenly, I am geting this sinking feeling that Mr. Romney is going to fail just like Mr. McCain in his mission. The reason is both men do not fight back. They do not fight back dirty. What is their problem? What good is all that money for?
He can’t tap that money until he is formally nominated.
It is beginning to look like Mr. Romney has the best knife in the gun fight.
The Olympics are on.
The VP hasn’t even been named.
There are limitations on how much he can spend prior to becoming the official nominee. After the convention, look for a huge media surge.
I was under the impression that Romney couldn’t spend his money until he’s officially named the candidate, that money raised for the election can’t be spent while he’s still only the presumptuous candidate.
Of course, I don’t normally do impressions...!
Has to be officially nominated. Dont worry the truth about barry will be out there no matter how much the lamestream media tries to hide it
He is prohibited under campaign law from spending the money he has raised since the primary until after the Convention at the end of this month.
PA could be in play, but that window will close quickly if Mitt can't/doesn't defend himself.
Romney fought plenty dirty during the primary, which is one of the reasons many conservatives don’t like him very much. He has shown that he has a sharp group of campaign advisers who respond quickly to attacks. And he has invested a large fortune of his own money getting this far. He is out raising large sums of money, and my guess is that he’s counting on the fact that most people are not paying a lick of attention to the presidential race right now.
Romney and the super PACs are going to roll into the conventions with large sums of money in the bank, with an Obama team that has shot every arrow in their quiver and most of their money. I think he’s keeping the powder dry until the conventions, and then it’s going to be Romney ads all day and night until November.
Besides the money issue, historically people don’t start paying attention until after Labor Day.
...for the same reason that the Marines didn’t invade Iwo Jima on December 8, 1941.
Because Mitt Dole, uh McCain, uh Romney is a putz.
I’d also like to see Romney hit back harder, but he is hitting back. I’m actually pleasantly surprised at some of the campaign commercials I’ve seen lately. In comparison, some of Obama’s have been downright creepy.
But as has been mentioned above, most people aren’t really paying attention yet and he’d be wise to hold off until closer to the election when more are engaged and the money will be more wisely spent.
It’s still summer. People are still vacationing, spending time with their kids and enjoying the weather. Once fall comes around, the weather starts to turn, and more people are inside watching TV (plus football season will be in full swing - when a lot of people are watching), hopefully we’ll see the Romney campaign in high gear.
You should read and learn from your own tagline.
As an aside, if Romney can not spend his money until after he is nominated, how can the non-nominated Obama spend his?
It’s time for some punching power! Mittens is way too soft. I’m not a huge fan of Krispy Christie, but I do like his attitude!
Because he is winning. watch the two campaigns and especially the desperation from Obama. That tells you where things are.
